Posted February 9, 2023 in Lifestyle by Ashleigh King

The perfect gifts for the superyacht owner who has it all – except for these unique ideas.

For the Detail-Conscious: Bespoke Rolls-Royce

Make automotive dreams come true with Rolls-Royce Ghost, the definition of post-opulent luxury. The Bespoke design team at Goodwood is famous for meeting the design challenges of the most demanding clientele in the world. From color-matching leather and wood to a personalized paint finish, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is more an artistic commission than a motor car. The designers have enlisted light to add to the design, with the first-ever illuminated fascia extending the starlight headliner to the dash. The illuminated grille heralds the arrival of this understated carriage in a subtle yet memorable style. There is also plenty of performance to be had – the Ghost has 563hp anda 0-60mph time of 4.6 seconds. Prices from $339,000. rolls-royce.com

For A-listers: The “Dreamer” Experience

Treat your loved one to a bit of Hollywood glamor as the subject of their own “celebrity” photo shoot. The Beverly Wilshire, A Four Seasons Hotel, has partnered with renowned portrait photographer Art Streiber and created an A-list portrait session, with all of the lights, cameras and action associated with his award-winning covers and movie posters. Guests will enjoy a luxurious stay in one of the legendary hotel’s newly refurbished suites. On the day of the shoot, step out onto Rodeo Drive with celebrity stylist Nicole Pollard Bayme of LALALUXE, before makeup services and hair styling by celebrity hair stylist Lea Journo. After a session in front of Streiber’s lenses, the hotel will roll out the red carpet for a wrap-party in the Michelin-starred private dining room at CUT by Wolfgang Puck. The exclusive experience is just one of the opportunities representing the best of what the city can offer. “The Dreamer” experience starts at $200,000. fourseasons.com/beverlywilshire

For the Intercontinental Traveler: The Gift of Flight

Give the gift of private jet travel this holiday season with the new NetJets 25-Hour LeaseTM. The lucky recipient will be able to access the NetJets fleet, which includes every size range, from the Embraer Phenom 300/E for up to six passengers and four-hour flight time up to the Bombardier Challenger 650 for transcontinental flights. With 320 days of guaranteed reservations, contracts ranging from three-to-five years with price stability, the opportunity to roll over any unused hours to the following year, and the ability to schedule with as little as 24 hours’ notice, the NetJets 25-Hour LeaseTM offers plenty of cost savings compared with jet cards. netjets.com

For Culture Vultures: A Residence in London’s Old War Office

Buy a loved one a piece of history with a residence in the iconic OWO building. The landmark Grade II* listed building, which has seen many greats- including Winston Churchill and Lloyd George – grace its doorstep, has been brought back to life in a monumental restoration to become the ultimate destination in London. Each ineffably glamorous residence, of which there are 85, is unique to its location in the building, and individually designed by the likes of Angel O’Donnell and Albion Nord. The iconic building, which faces Horse Guards, also hosts the capital’s first Raffles hotel, as well as a collection of bars and restaurants, multiple gyms, a cinema, swimming pool and spa. Oozing with old-world glamor and in such a prime location, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live within the walls of great history. Prices from £7,100,000 for two-bedroom residences. theowo.london

For the Sharp Dresser: Bespoke Shoes for Life

What could be a more unique and luxurious gift than a bespoke pair of shoes? Bespoke shoes for life. 150-year-old Jermyn Street bootmaker John Lobb’s tailored service includes the creation of artisan crafted “lasts.” Hewn from long-lasting Thornwood and based on a series of exact measurements, a pair of lasts takes at least six months from start to finish, but once created, they are stored for life. Bespoke footwear from $7,000. johnlobb.com

For the Eco-adventure Seeker: Travel to Space

Bucket-listers can now experience spaceflight without leaving a huge carbon footprint, thanks to Space Perspective, a leading luxury space travel company. Propelled by a SpaceBalloonTM that uses renewable hydrogen, Spaceship Neptune promises a gentle, environmentally-conscious trip to the edge of space without the stress of rockets or g-forces. The first-of-its-kind Space Lounge has been designed for comfort (think reclining seats and a refreshments bar), with LED lighting to enhance the 360-degree views of Earth against the dark backdrop of space. Flights begin in late 2024, but don’t wait to place your refundable deposit now because seats are limited. spaceperspective.com

For the Ultimate in Air Travel: The ACJ TwoTwenty

For next-level luxury, the ACJ TwoTwenty offers the ultimate in comfort and style with unmatched personal space, intercontinental range and state-of-the-art technology. The ACJ TwoTwenty is a similar investment to other large cabin business aircraft, but offers twice the cabin space and lower operating costs. The expansive six-zone cabin is where it really stands out, with two extra cabin zones for additional privacy, best-in-class connectivity or a California King bed, en-suite bath with rain shower, and a 55-inch 4K TV. So, whether it is fine dining, a movie night, working from the sky or simply relaxing, Airbus curates the space and technology to enable you to do so without compromise. acj.airbus.com
