Best 2022 Luxury Christmas Gifts

Our lowdown on the best luxury Christmas gifts for the different kinds of people in your life. 

In a post-pandemic world, people have saved up some money and developed a renewed interest in luxury. Reports reveal that the global luxury goods market thrived this year, and is set to expand—unfazed by economic circumstances—well into 2030. The personal luxury goods market is set to grow at 3 to 8 per cent next year. Be it for its investment value, quality or aesthetic appeal, people love a bit of luxe infused into their lives. So, this Christmas, treat them to some of the finest gifts. Here are our top picks:

1. For the fitness enthusiast:

Come the new year, many people vow to prioritize their health and renew their fitness goals. With your Christmas gift, you can be a part of their journey. Consider giving them the new Apple Watch Series 8, which has a bigger screen, better battery life and more features, like blood oxygen sensors, crash detection, temperature sensing for women’s health and more. It is also water-resistant, making it perfect for the swimmers and surfers in your circle. 

Another reliable choice is the Fitbit watch or the Oura smart ring (for those who don’t like to deck their wrists). From interactive exercise mirrors to self-cleaning water bottles, there are many other items you could consider, too. 

2. For the tech enthusiast:

If your giftee loves all things tech, perhaps you could treat them to some latest releases, like the HTC Vive virtual reality glasses, or if they love cleaning, a WiFi-connected Roomba vacuum cleaner. If they are gamers, a new Nintendo Switch console will guarantee a wide smile. There is a tech-forward gift for every kind of giftee—be it the friend who wants to upgrade their home with tech or the chef who would love a new air fryer or coffee machine. 

3. For the style forward:

As a result of our Instagram-first world, luxury brands are emphasizing the aesthetic appeal of their offerings. If your giftee has a penchant for all things visually arresting, consider gifting them a stunning luxury watch, handbag or a pair of sunglasses. 

You could pore over luxury watch brand Vacheron Constantin’s latest Égérie Collection, which features moon phase watches in pink gold. It boasts three watches: one fully diamond-set (from the dial to the strap), another with a diamond-set dial and bezel and the final one with diamonds on the bezel alone. The collection matches a range of sensibilities, allowing you to choose the perfect one that matches your giftee’s personality. 

You could also look at sunglasses, including Bottega Veneta’s Aviator-Style Bronze-Tone Mirrored sunglasses boasting a contemporary yet classic flair or Dita’s frameless titanium sunglasses for the adventurous one. And of course, jewelry is always a safe bet.

4. For the worker bee:

Maybe your giftee has just started a new job or their own business. Perhaps they are just in desperate need of a work office makeover (Let’s be honest: aren’t we all?). In any case, this is the time of the year for it. For Christmas, consider gifting your working loved ones a beautiful pastel-hued leather desk pad, a stone notebook, a new customized calendar or a new laptop cover. 

Another gift to consider is a bag. In case your friend, family member or colleague is making a return to work-from-office, give them a luxurious handbag as a token of luck. French luxury house Chloe’s Edith medium topstitched leather shoulder bag is one option. With it being available in three classic hues of black, beige or brown, you simply can’t go wrong with it. If your giftee loves the labels, you could also consider tote bags from Gucci or Prada featuring their iconic logos. 

5. For the vagabond:

Instead of gifting your loved one an item, kick it up a notch and treat them to a luxurious experience, like a spa or getaway. Buy them a voucher for a luxury spa, offering everything from thermal baths to spiritual journeys, nearby or at a location of their choice. 

If they love traveling or could really just use a break from everyday life, book them a luxury staycation at their preferred destination (make sure you run the location, if not the exact staycation destination, by them first). Pick a place that fits their personalities. You don’t want to send them to a mountaintop if they have incredible motion sickness or hate the cold. 

Why wait? Pamper your loved ones with the best luxury gifts this Christmas and New Year.
