She’s been good all year; it’s time to shower her with lavish gifts. Here are Playboy.com’s picks for the women on your holiday shopping list.
Derek Hess – He Ain’t No Vargas
You’ll have the centerfolds; she’ll have the art book. Renowned artist Derek Hess has published a limited run of 500 hardbound copies of He Ain’t No Vargas. The book includes Hess’ collection of grease pencil nudes sketched over 1960s and 1970s Playboy Magazine covers. You can purchase the signed and numbered book on its own for $50 or alongside a limited-edition print of the cover art for $75.
Burton Machen Kate 2
She’s celebrating Playboy’s 60th anniversary her own way. Street art and decay photographer Burton Machen captured the city wares of Kate Moss’ Supreme posters plastered around town over the course of a year and is now selling prints of the photos of Machen’s “Urban Evolution: Kate Moss” series. You can purchase a framed, signed and numbered print at ahalife.com for $750.
Coach Wool Cashmere and Leather Fitted Car Coat
She’s made of sugar and a smack of spice. Coach have married their classic scuba peacoat with modern-day style by elongating the cut of the wool-and-cashmere fitted jacket with soft lambskin leather. Since the cost is $1,500, it’s strictly for good girls only.
Owl’s Brew – Tea for Cocktails
She doesn’t bat an eye when she pours herself a cocktail on a Wednesday afternoon. New York’s Brew Lab Tea has released the first ever tea exclusively “crafted for cocktails” by brewing in microbatches with whole spices and fruit. Pink & Black will be her new favorite; its tart take on Darjeeling tea is absolutely divine. Bottles are sold separately and go for $9-16.
Nallik Stone Necklace
She doesn’t want to be held down by a ring. You know that if you were to give her anything with a circumference smaller than her wrist, she would likely flee. If this sounds like your girl, go with this tourmaline necklace by Nallik available on fab.com for $135.
Margot – Agent Provocateur
A little bit for her, a little bit for you. It’ll be a naughty Christmas with Agent Provocateur’s stretchy black lace set. The bra, suspender and briefs (we prefer its lovely crisscross straps to the thong) go for a combined $660, but trust us, the whole getup is way beyond worth it. Pair the lingerie with Agent Provocateur’s “whip me” stockings ($70) and it’ll be one hell of a morning, noon and night.
Buxom Serial Kisser Collection
For the girl who can’t stop kissing you, a whole set of lipsticks. Buxom has released a collection made just for the “serial kissers” in your life. The five mini lipsticks from its Full-Bodied line come in five perfect colors and are just the right size to squeeze into her little clutch. The promise she’ll keep those lips for you alone? Not included in the $40 price tag.
Chanel: Livre d’Artistes
Luxury is a requisite for her. Bookmaker Irma Boom has recently collaborated with the N°5 Culture Chanel exhibit at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris to develop a beautifully embossed book with Boom’s original designs entwined with original French quotes from Gabrielle Chanel that “play with the senses, capturing the essence of the Chanel N°5 fragrance through touch.” The 600-page art book will go for $200 on Abramsbooks.com.
She’s always the last one to leave the dance floor. Not only is Suerte Tequila nice going down, its hip bottle design is not so bad either. Pick up a bottle of Suerte’s award-winning, handcrafted Blanco Tequila for $40.
The Loveless Café
She takes her breakfast in bed. Nashville favorite Loveless Café has opened its doors to anyone with a zip code thanks to their Deluxe Breakfast gift box. Be warned: if you show up on her doorstep this holiday season with these indulgent ingredients, you may never leave her bed. Of course, that might not be a bad thing.
Suki Cheema Throw
A book and a bottle of wine is her ideal night in. You’ll be her knight in shining armor when you gift her with the 100 percent merino Taquile Classic Throw. This blanket has been a staple in the Suki Cheema collection and will no doubt become a fundamental part of her reading nook too. Buy it now for $500.
Ferrone Wine and Water Glass Set
Her home rivals the MoMA. Every object is another opportunity to let her creative individuality shine, all the way down to the glasses she sips from. If she doesn’t already own a few pieces from Felicia Ferrone’s minimalist modern accessories line, you’ll be a hit this Christmas with the Revolution Water and Wine set."When in use, its contents appear to float, seeming to defy gravity," boasts Ferrone, and with a price of $84 for the set, it won’t break the bank like most art pieces tend to do.
Ratio Eight Coffee Machine
By eight A.M. she’s had so many cups of coffee you’ve lost count. She’s got a refined palate for coffee, so a Keurig will no longer do. Ratio has melded haute design and the science of a perfect cup flawlessly with its Ratio Eight coffee machine. Developed in Portland, Oregon, each unit is entirely hand-assembled. The first 500 machines will be laser marked with a serial number and are currently on sale at Ratiocoffee.com for $395.
