Whoever first observed that good things come in small packages definitely knew what they were talking about. From the world’s sexiest nail polish to diamond encrusted exquisite perfume, the keys to a dreamy Italian ride and of course, jewelry – if it’s worth lusting over and fits inside a holiday stocking, it made our list of 2014’s most fun and fantasy-worthy stocking-stuffers on the e-planet.
Christian Louboutin Starlight
A shoe’s sole shouldn’t have all the fun. Maestro Louboutin has now brought some of his glossy red magic to hand level with this gorgeous, limited-edition nail lacquer. Even the packaging is fabulous: a glossy black box with red flower detailing that contains a glamorous, faceted-glass bottle festooned with 1,500 hand-applied crystals. $675 from Sephora.com.
Clive Christian No1 Passant Guardant
To celebrate the opening of the new Salon de Parfum at Harrods, British perfumer Clive Christian created a special edition of his No1 perfume in a 24 carat gold, lattice-work covered crystal bottle encrusted with 2,000 individually set diamonds. Like all his bottles, the top is in the shape of a crown and the design, which was created in 1872, pays homage to Queen Victoria. The perfume is so costly to produce, only 1000 bottles are released. But the woman lucky enough to wear it will revel in the notes of Tahitian vanilla scented with cherry liquorice, a heart of rose centafolia – associated with Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty – and enchanting ylang-ylang. The special-edition No.1 is £143,000, but a regular bottle is £450 and available at Harrods.com.
A New Pair of Shoes Everyweek
Since a girl can never have enough shoes, let her choose a new pair each week for an entire year from every fashionista’s favorite online hunting grounds. $41,500 at Net-a-Porter.com.
Vivace Caviar Flight
For the aficionado, there’s only one thing better than a small tub of caviar and that’s a stocking stuffed with three of them! These were selected by the experts at the California Caviar Company and include Vivace Primo, a large, uniformly-sized roe from Baerii sturgeon with a fresh, clean flavor and a firm pop; the larger and even more flavorful second harvest roe from the same sturgeon, Vivace Molto; and a slightly sweet Whitefish Roe infused with the bold, rich flavors of white and black truffles. To ensure freshness, these are only available via next-day shipping. $485 from Dean & DeLuca.
The Keys to a Limited-Edition Maserati Ghibli S Q4
The Ghibli roars like the North African wind it was named for, an undeniably hot and powerful package with a delectable Italian accent. The 3.0-liter V6 twin-turbo engine was produced in collaboration with Ferrari and bystanders will no doubt be blown away by its ability to zoom from 0 to 60 in under 5 seconds. If not, blasting the Bowers & Wilkins stereo should do the trick. Built as only one of 100, to mark Maserati’s 100th anniversary, from the premium-leather interior to the Grigio Maratea exterior paint with 20″ silver forged wheels and striking red brake calipers, there’s precisely nothing ordinary about this sleek, all-wheel drive machine…calling it a car doesn’t quite cut it. Molto bene. $95,000 at NeimanMarcus.com.
A Treasure Trove of Colorful Isharya Jewels
For 2015, the fashion Color of the Year is Marsala, which pairs perfectly with our Jewel Rani Shaded Pink Slim Cuff for just the right touch of chic coordination. Particularly by the armload and paired with the Orchid Goddess Quartzite Stud Earring, a now nostalgic nod to 2014’s Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid. Since it’s the season for all things red and green, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for our Green Malachite Goddess Band Ring – a decadent treat, yes, but also right for everyday. For a case of the fashion blues, a pile of our Jewel Rani Blue Lapis Stackable Bangles references our beauty-minded ancient Egyptian sisters who treasured blue lapis for its luminous hue and even ground it into a glamorous eye shadow. Or, if you just can’t settle on a single color, the good news is, you don’t have to! Our Rani Rocks Multi Stone Bracelet adorns the wrist with red quartz, blue lapis, green malachite, black striped jasper and all trimmed in elegant 24k gold.
