Holiday Gift Ideas: Finding fabulous holiday gifts for those who seemingly have it all can be a challenge at best. With this in mind, each season I scour the luxury marketplace to uncover new, innovative and otherwise exemplary must haves — the best-of-the-best across a range of product and price categories. My annual Haute Holiday Gift Lists feature a mix of tasteful, trendy, and high quality goods and services — some extravagant, some practical — that are all sure to please the lucky recipient.
Consider this assortment of glam gift ideas:
Leading edge HDMI 1.3 audio and video are fully implemented and the latest Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio codecs are also supported. On-board audio decoding with full bass management and a multi-channel audio output enable use with legacy A/V processors. Differential balanced, analog audio circuitry is used throughout. Industry-leading video reproduction capabilities provide a vibrant, noise free image worthy of the finest video displays.
The Chef'sChoice Trizor 10X 4.5-inch steak knives will be extraordinarily well received by those who covet top-quality cutlery. These fine knives, nearly 9 inches from end-to-end, are fully-forged with a blade profile designed to minimize edge wear caused by cutting on fine china, porcelain and other dinnerware. They are made of hard, strong and durable Trizor steel, which guarantees an ultra-sharp edge that lasts up to 10 times longer than any European or domestic kitchen cutlery. The specially textured polymer handle on these knives is designed to eliminate bacterial contamination and ensure a superb feel and non-slip grip, wet or dry.
Handsomely crafted and styled for daily use, while also elegant enough for special occasion meals, these knives are perfect for all types of meat and poultry. This handsome set of six is nestled in an elegant hand rubbed walnut finish box with hidden hinges and full and padded velvet interior. With the perfect blend of form and function, the Chef'sChoice Trizor Professional 10X Cutlery Steak Knives set is an appreciable addition to any kitchen.
While the company's line featuring necklaces, earrings and rings featuring unique and colorful gems is downright spectacular, one necklace set in particular from the 1 OAK Metals Collection caught my eye for its unique combination of heavy gauge and delicate chains, quaint charms and beguiling quartz. One necklace in this gorgeous set features dual 26 inch gunmetal chains with a metallic gold snake as the interlocking clasp. This piece is both urban and chic, and would look great alone. But, add to it the other two pieces in the set and the style statement becomes something truly remarkable. The second piece is an 18 inch 14-karat gold filled chain with stunning gold-rimmed agate geode slice and precious heart charm. The third is a complimentary 18 inch 14-karat gold filled chain with a faceted iron pyrite charm and, separately, a whimsical wishbone charm. The three necklaces may be purchased as a set, or separately.
Whether worn layered together or individually, she can dress these pieces up or down and wear them day or night. Either way, this 1 OAK jewelry is sure to get her noticed.
Most blenders are unable to provide creamy, restaurant style frozen drinks. This devise allows users to do this and much more, and faster than ever before. This all-in-one kitchen gadget can blend and pulse to perfection, crush ice into snow in seconds, and also dice, mince and puree fresh ingredients far better than other mixers, food processors and other such appliances on the market.
The interchangeable power pod system allows for a quick and easy transition between recipes, bowls and pitchers, and can go right into the dishwasher for a quick and easy clean up. Three dishwasher- and microwave-safe containers are included: a 16 oz. chopping bowl, a 40 oz. "multi-task" pitcher and a 48 oz. large pitcher.
