The only thing more frightening than fear of missing out, is the fear of not knowing what to gift your favorite over-the-top friend. After all, they’re already living their best life, popping up at all the places to see and be seen, and they have no shortage of exotic locations they plan on traveling to in 2019. But fret not, we have a few suggestions for some of the biggest, most lavish gifts one can buy.
If they’re an Ariana Grande fan, (then again, who isn’t?), they’ll love a pair of tickets to see the pop star in concert during her forthcoming Sweetener tour. Or perhaps they’re looking to make time for more self-care in the New Year; in that case, a season spa pass to the highly Instagramable La Mamounia Marrakech is a natural choice. Even better if you package it with a Fujifilm camera to capture the moment.
If they’re more of a foodie, they’ll delight in receiving a reservation for two at the newly opened Encore in New York from Top Chef winner Jean Imbert. The French chef’s lengthy résumé includes whipping up delectable creations for Beyoncé and Jay-Z, and serving as a personal chef to Pharrell. Now with his new hotspot in Manhattan, it’s the norm to spot celebrity guests at the next table; Dua Lipa and Lenny Kravitz have both dined there in the last month alone.
For the art lovers in the mix, look no further than a membership to The Cultivist. Widely known as your VIP pass to the most exclusive happenings in the art world, a membership will grant you access to everything from cool art parties to private studio visits to after-hours museum tours and more in an extensive program of events around the globe.
