Win the Baby Shower Gift Competition by Giving Baby This Arabesque Gold Pacifier

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2015

What sort of gift baby gift would be good enough to give to a seriously affluent family? The parents probably have everything they actually need, so your only option is to find something unique and just a tad bit outlandish. Like this baby pacifier made with Arabesque gold from Merdinger House of Design. A combination of metal alloys and 18K gold, the pacifier is accented with a three-stone setting in the center. We highly doubt this is actually meant for the baby to put in its mouth, but instead as a display piece that they can grow up and tuck away for their own children. Or at least keep on hand for when someone accuses them of being born with a silver spoon in their mouth—“Not true! It was a gold pacifier!”

Backgammon and Champagne. What More Do You Need?

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

Spending a Friday night playing backgammon may not sound like a crazy night to some, but not all of us want to make regrettable decisions in a dimly-lit bar every weekend. Plus, when your backgammon gaming table is designed to hold a champagne bucket and two flutes, you can still get your drink on in the comforts of your own home—which is way classier anyhow. Handcrafted on the Cote d’Azur in whatever color combination you want, the Deluxe Backgammon Table from The Orange Line makes game nights look pretty dang appealing. Each one comes with counters and dice cups handmade from DuPont Corian, a tailor-made drawstring bag, two pairs of dice, and a doubling dice. Once it’s delivered, all you have to do is pick the perfect gaming companion—after you learn how to play backgammon, of course.

Better Keep an Eye on This 24k Gold Plated Segwheel

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

Once you’ve mastered the art of zooming around on an electric unicycle—like the Ninebot One, for instance—you may want to upgrade your new toy, and nothing says upgrade quite like gold. Known for covering gadgets and bikes in bling, Goldgenie is now offering the 24k Gold Segwheel. Topped with a golden snake skin pattern, the Segwheel can travel up to 11mph for around 7.4 miles on a 45 minute charge. If it’s not fancy enough for you already, the company can also customize a special one for you by bringing in diamonds, semi-precious stones, and person laser engravings. Just make sure you keep an eye on it, because this is a thief’s dream.

BY : JustLuxe Team | 2015

The Bespoke W1 Suitcase Takes It Back to Travel's Golden Days

Own It
BY : JustLuxe Team | 2015

Bespoke leather luggage brings out the Audrey Hepburn or Clark Gable in all of us. It’s got a charm all of its own and its good looks age beautifully. It’s classy and a classic for all ages. 

Now, the Wilkens design start-up is bringing custom leather luggage into the 21st century. When you order yours online, you select between the fine leathers, metal accents and suede interiors of your choice—then add your own monogram as the only logo. Carbon fiber reinforcements keep things nice and light, so it’s easy to roll on concealed wheels once you pull out the telescopic handle. Global crowdfunding makes it all possible

A tempting array of color options is available, and the more adventurous might opt for a bold combination of contrasting hues or even white on white. We’d side with Audrey and Clark on this one, and keep with classic earth tones like light brown on dark for the leather and mahogany for the trim. The W1 Suitcase comes from the mind of its Danish founder Michael Wilkens and Barcelona-based designer Mauro Bianucci, and is handcrafted by Bespoke Luggage in Montana. Wilkens is using a niche-funding model to move into production: the first 200 to purchase gain patron status—and a share of future sales—in addition to their unique carry-on.

Ninebot One is the Newest Electronic Unicycle to Outsmart its Peers

Own It
BY : Mila Pantovich | 2015

An electric unicycle may not be new to the scene anymore, but done well and it’s certainly still cool. Capable of reaching a top speed of just over 13mph, the Ninebot One only takes 1-4 hours to charge and promises to be smarter than anything else on the market. Featuring an iridescent lamp running around the exterior, you can program your scooter to glow and blink whatever color you want via the accompanying app. There’s also an alarm system that will let you know via sound, light and vibration when you’re going too fast or lean too far. It will also go off when the battery is running low, when it’s overheating, and when the gadget has an internal malfunction. If the thought of riding around on one wheel makes you nervous, you can buy an assistant wheel set—which basically adds little training wheels to the pedals—so you can get the hang of the balancing act before zooming around in public.
