Many people won’t be traveling this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t buy gifts from your favorite luxury hotels around the world and deck out your home with lavish amenities and lush decor. Here are five festive treasures that can be discovered in the online shops from some of the world’s most beloved hotels:
For The Cocktail Connoisseur
Famed Claridge’s Hotel in London is synonymous with English luxury and has launched Claridge’s Bar Bespoke Whiskey, made in collaboration with the Macallan Estate. This limited edition is the ideal accessory to be shared with family and friends over the holidays. A collector’s piece, only 100 bottles of this 24-year-old single malt have been distilled. Aged within a first-fill sherry cask, expect a full-bodied, fruity flavor and long, complex finish. Pair with Cecil Beaton’s Cocktail Book from Claridge’s Bar Manager Denis Broci, and whip up creative cocktails along with stories behind the Jazz Age’s most celebrated drinks. shop.claridges.co.uk
Tea time is a sacred event in Great Britain, and you can bring the ritual anywhere in the world with the Pret-a-Portea China Tea Set for four. Made by porcelain craftsmen Bernardaud, the palette of indigo, yellow, and lilac is found in the Collins Room at The Berkeley. The Prêt-à-Portea China Set for Four contains four teacups, four saucers, one large milk jug, and one large teapot, perfect for four cups.
For the Master Relaxer
As we spend more time at home, the gift of serenity and calm is always appreciated. The luxurious St. Regis has been the epitome of elegance since it opened in 1904 in New York City. The scent was crafted by renowned perfumier Carlos Huber to create the signature scent with notes of American Beauty, palm frond, violet, and Easter Lily. The floral scent is used in every St. Regis property around the world.
For the Spa Enthusiast
Create a personal sanctuary with The Ritz-Carlton Spa Lavender & Bergamot Gift Set. A blend of calming lavender and bergamot in a soy wax blend candle and fragrance mist to sprinkle your space with additional aromas of sage, rose, amber and vanilla. Elegantly wrapped in a white box tied with a ribbon, for the perfect presentation.
For the little ones
Introducing a touch of magic to children’s bath times, white Luxury Children’s Bathrobes are the same as the softly styled bathrobes given to the youngest guests of The Connaught. Fun as well as functional, the robes feature a tail and cute ears on the hood – a nod to The Connaught ‘hound’.
