What to get a millionaire man for Valentine’s Day

Posted by | Luxury Gifts | One Comment

Valentine’s Day gifts are tough to buy in general because they need to represent so much…or so little, depending on where you are in a relationship. And then, buying gifts for men is tough in general. If you’re going with traditional “manly” stuff, men just don’t have a lot of fun options. Layer on top of buying a gift for a millionaire man, who can and probably does, buy himself anything he wants, and you’ve got a seriously difficult gift to buy. A Valentine’s Day gift for a millionaire man might just be the hardest gift to find ever. Well, I’m here to help you with a few options.

Recreate a shared memory

This is a sweet and sappy idea, which is my favorite type of gift. Recreate a special memory you guys have together. What’s great about this option is that you can do this in a really budget friendly way, if you need to. You could take him to dinner at a place that is meaningful to your relationship. Or, you could Google up some recipes from that place and cook them yourself at home. Same thing with a weekend trip—actually take him to a place you both love or decorate your living room to look like your favorite hotel and make an appetizer from the cuisine of the best country you two have visited together. This one really isn’t about the money you spend. It’s a gift of thoughtfulness. So cheesy and so something I’d love to get or give!

Get nasty

It’s Valentine’s Day, which is a super romantic and super sexy holiday. Reflect that in your gift! You could create a really sexy night for the two of you with a long, scented bath, some lingerie you know he’d like, new satin sheets… and a lot of time between them! You might want to get yourselves a hotel room to change up the scenery. Or you could live out a fantasy you know he has. A romantic, sexy night makes for a great gift. After all, it’s not something he can get himself!

Something you want

So, what do you get for the guy who has everything? Something you want! Get him a cologne you find irresistible. Or maybe you think he’d look great in purple but he doesn’t own any. Get him a violet shirt! Want him to have a more stylish haircut? Go ahead and schedule him an appointment at a trendy salon! This is your chance to make those little tweaks you’ve always wanted to make. And, you’ll get to make them without coming across as a nag. In fact, you’ll seem generous. Win, win!

Happy gift hunting, my loves. Hope your millionaire man likes whatever you wind up getting him!

5 holiday gifts to put on your list if you’re dating a millionaire… and have been very good this year!

Posted by | Luxury Gifts | One Comment

Hear that? That ringing sound? It’s not jingle bells! It’s cash registers binging with sales because holiday shopping time is upon us! Can you believe it? This year has been one of the fastest of my life and I’m shocked that it’s time to start making our lists and checking them twice for holiday shopping. The best way to make sure you get what you really want this year is to actually tell your loved ones. That may take some of the surprise out of Christmas morning, but it guarantees that your friends and family are spending their hard earned money on things you’ll truly enjoy. And I think that outweighs the surprise factor in terms of importance. Plus, there are always surprises from Santa! So, if you’re having some problems thinking of what to request, here are some things to ask for if you happen to dating a millionaire this holiday season. And for those poor souls who aren’t dating a millionaire, you could still ask for these gifts if you have a large enough posse of people willing to chip in. Maybe everyone in your family will throw in a few bucks to leave one of these under your tree this year!

Cashmere coat

You all know that I’m a California girl at this point. I’ve been here too long to be anything else. But, I do spend a lot of time on the East Coast and when I’m there in the colder months, there’s nothing I love more than a luxurious winter coat made of cashmere. If you don’t have one of these, it’s the perfect thing to put on your wishlist from your millionaire. Any time you’re chilly, you’ll be able to slip your super soft and stylish coat on and feel like you’re getting a hug from your boo.

Michelin meal

I love an experience gift that can be shared and I’m a total foodie, so this would definitely be something I’d put on my list. There’s nothing quite like eating at a Michelin starred restaurant. So, if you and your millionaire boo are into good eats, you should definitely request a holiday meal at one of the Michelin starred places close to you…or, if you’ve been very, very good this year, you could ask for a weekend trip planned around the meal. You’ll get to dress up, celebrate the season and truly enjoy your boo’s company. It’ll be an evening to remember for both you.

Sunglasses

I’m a big believer in spending on staple pieces and getting your wear out of them. And sunglasses are something you can get a lifetime of use out of. So, I think they’re the perfect spendy staple to have in your wardrobe. Get a classic design and you’ll wear them for years to come. Your boo will love seeing the holiday gift they got you on a regular basis, too.

Boozey lesson

Like I said, an experience gift is a primo present in my book and I’m loving this trend of artisanal alcohol that’s been growing in recent years. Ask your man or woman for a date night at a nice distillery or vineyard where you learn more about your favorite boozey beverage… and get a lot of tastes! It’ll be a fun date and help you enjoy the drinks you love even more.

Make your dreams come true

What’s your dream? It doesn’t have to be reasonable at all. Maybe you want to be on Saturday Night Live or fly an airplane. Why not ask your love to make your dreams come true in a small way by asking for a class in your dream field. If it’s being on SNL, you could ask for an improv class. Or a flying lesson if it’s to be a pilot. If your dream is to heal the world, you could even take a semester course in non-profit management. I love the idea of leaning on your partner to help you take the first step toward achieving a huge dream. It’ll put a little extra pressure on you to stick with pursuing your goals and bring you closer together with your boo since they’re so involved in it.

Hope that helps all you nice people out there. If you’ve been naughty, well, there’s a lot you can do with coal! They make great paperweights, for example.

5 cute gifts to get your millionaire if you’re on a budget

Posted by | Luxury Gifts | 3 Comments

I’m well aware that this is a very champagne problem to have, but when you’re dating a millionaire and you’re not one yourself, holiday gifts can be a tricky thing. What do you get the guy or gal who can and does buy everything they could possibly want? The pressure is especially on when they’re generous gifters themselves. You want them to feel as special as they make you feel, but you can’t exactly cover a weekend jaunt to the Maldives or a Michelin starred meal. Fear not, my little millionaire lovers. I have some wonderful gift ideas for you to gift this holiday season that will make your boo feel the love without breaking the bank or your credit card limit. Read More

What jewelry gifts from millionaire says about your relationship

Posted by | Luxury Gifts | 2 Comments

Gifts of jewelry are obviously always a special treat. There’s something very romantic and touching about a man going to a jewelry store alone and trying to find the perfect thing to make you smile. And there’s a lot of meaning in a jewelry gift. This is especially true when you’re dating a millionaire, like most of my clients. Jewelry from a millionaire can say a lot about his feelings towards you and your relationship. Here are some hints about what your millionaire man might be thinking based on the jewels he’s gifting you.

Necklace Jewelry

This is a man who is very attracted to you and committed to the relationship. He’s not ready to make a serious commitment yet, but he’s certainly thinking about a future with you and excited about the possibilities. There’s something so sexy about a man helping a woman put her necklace on and buying you this means that he wants to do that for you every time you wear that necklace. Also, a necklace is a very prominent piece of jewelry. So, he’s hoping that you wear it a lot so he can admire it on you. All in all, getting a necklace is a very good thing.

Diamond bracelet Jewelry

Getting a bracelet from your man isn’t a bad thing, but it’s not a good thing in terms of his point of view on your relationship. Unless you specifically asked for a bracelet, it means that he wasn’t sure what else to get you. A bracelet can be worn with many other pieces of jewelry together, even other bracelets, so it’s not exactly a statement piece. It says he might not know your tastes that well, or maybe isn’t putting in the effort to get to know your taste.

Non-engagement ring Jewelry

A ring from a man you’re hoping is going to propose is bad news. This is a guy who’s never going to take the plunge and ask you to marry him. He knows that giving you a non-engagement ring will buy him some time, until the marriage conversation comes up again. I say have a serious talk with the fellow and make sure your plans for the future of your relationship sync up. If not, time to take off this ring and find someone who’s more willing to commit.

Gem earrings Jewelry

This one’s a toughie because earrings are a really fabulous present to get. And diamond earrings are an obvious win. But, precious gems can mean a lot of things. If the gem he got you is something personal, like your birth stone or a favorite color, then this means this guy wants your relationship to last a while. But, if it’s not and he went for gems instead of diamonds for no apparent reason, it could mean that he’s not as invested in your relationship as he could be. Millionaires make their decisions about investing shrewdly and hedge certain bets. Seems like he might be doing that with you. Time to have a conversation and check in with your boo, I think!

I know I didn’t cover every single type of jewelry possible. But, those are the biggies. If you have specific questions, comment below with what type of jewelry you received from your man and I’ll let you know my thoughts on what it means about your relationship.

7 Gifts for her to feel like a million bucks

Posted by | Luxury Gifts | No Comments

The holidays are here! I love so many things about this time of year…the crisp air, the cheer, the community togetherness, and the chance to show your loved ones how much you care. Gifts are an important love language for me, as they are for many people. And the holidays are a special time when you can get gifts for the people who mean a lot to you and treat them to something that makes them feel great. This is especially true when you’re in a relationship. So, if you’re a man out there who’s a millionaire, or just wants to make his gal feel like a million bucks, I have some gift ideas for you. These gifts are guaranteed to make any woman feel amazing and so fortunate that she’s dating you.

Gifts for her to feel like a million bucks

movado watchWatch

Getting your lady a watch is a great idea, especially if your woman isn’t as into jewelry as the normal girl is. Watches are jewelry with purpose! Get her something unique that she doesn’t already have in her jewelry box. I’ve very into the watches that wrap around the wrist several times. There’s something so edgy and unexpected about them. One of my favorites is this Movado Museum Wrap Goldtone Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch. It’s a wearable piece of art!

Tickets

Check her calendar and find a night that she’s free. Then, get her tickets to a show that you know she’ll love. Maybe a favorite band of hers is coming into town. Or, if you’re stumped, get her Hamilton tickets. If you don’t live in the New York area, even better! You can plan a whole romantic weekend around the show. Hamilton is THE Broadway show everyone’s talking about and if your lady hasn’t seen it yet, this is a must-get for her holiday gift.

lou boutinsLouboutins

Christian Louboutin shoes are the gold standard of women’s footwear. Every woman should own a pair. And if your lady already has a pair, or several, then she has fabulous taste and will certainly appreciate expanding her collection. You know her taste better than I do, but I think when you’re gifting something, you should buy a treat your woman wouldn’t normally get herself. So, don’t go for something boring like black or neutral heels. Pick out something really special that will turn heads whenever she wears them. My selection of the season are the So Kate Pointy Toe Pumps. The iridescent finish is beyond eye-catching, but they’re very wearable because with all of the colors, they go with any outfit.

An experience

Give your woman a special experience for the holidays instead of just a gift. Think about what she really likes and then explore what you can do with that. For example, if your lady loves roses, you could look into a special evening at the local botanical gardens with a rose expert. Or, you could hire a private chef to craft a rose inspired menu for a very special evening together. Planning an experience is a lot more work than your typical holiday gift, but your lady will love and appreciate every second of it. Trust me.

Engraved jewelry

Everyone gets their girlfriend and wives jewelry. Make your jewelry gift different by getting it engraved with something meaningful to the two of you. Maybe you can engrave the inside of a bracelet with the coordinates of your first date. Or get her a special locket with the lyrics to a song that you both listened to for the first time together. You can also find places that will engrave your fingerprint onto precious metal, which could be very meaningful. If you’re looking for something special to engrave, I’d recommend this Lana 14K Electric Diamond-Trimmed Ring. I’ve never seen anything like it and I think it would appeal to a broad range of tastes.

evening bagEvening bag

No woman can have enough evening bags, so this is a safe bet. Plus, you don’t have to deal with sizing, which can be touchy when buying gifts for women. A really fun idea would be to give her a gift of an evening bag with the above mentioned tickets or experience gift. Tell her that the first time she uses the bag can be on the special date you planned for her. She’ll love that. You can never go wrong with leather from Bottega Veneta. I love their Intrecciato Montebello Clutch. It’s a classic look in such high quality craftsmanship. She’ll have this bag for decades and remember how thoughtful you were when you picked it out for her every time she wears it!

Jo Malone London

If you’re in a newer relationship with your lady, you can’t get too intimate or personal with the gifts. But, you still want to let her know that she’s your special someone this holiday season. So, where does that leave you? I say head straight to Jo Malone London. This brand has amazing scents and candles that are incredibly luxurious. They’d be a treat for anyone! Get something from their Pomegranate Noir Collection and you’re set. It’s such a yummy scent. It’s sure to be a hit!

Hope this helps in your holiday hunting! Best of luck beating the crowds and finding the perfect gift for your perfect woman!

7 gifts for a millionaire man

Posted by | Luxury Gifts | 2 Comments

Dating a millionaire has a lot of perks that are so obvious, I honestly don’t think I need to go into them. There are also some hurdles of dating a man with a lot of money, too. And the issue I’m going to tackle in this post is gift giving. Getting a gift for a man who has everything is tricky. He buys himself anything he really wants. And with his bank account, it’s going to be difficult to top anything he already has access to. But, you still want to make your mister feel special over the holidays, so of course you’re going to get him a present. The only issue is what are you going to get him? What could you get your millionaire man that he hasn’t already thought of himself? I’ve put together a list of some ideas that I think any man would love and I hope gives you some inspiration for what to gift to your special millionaire fellow.

Gifts for a millionaire man

Commission a painting

Getting a painting done especially for him is something no man would ever get himself. You could have a painting created that’s a portrait of the two of you together, if you are very seriously dating him or married to your millionaire. If it’s a newer relationship, I’d stick to something like painting a memory you two share together. You could get the ski house you two love painted or a very specific view of a landscape you hike to as a couple together. This can be a really touching and meaningful token of your affection.

Manery

cufflinksDo you know what manery is? It’s man jewelry! No man can have too many cufflinks or tie clips, so if you get him one of those two things, he’ll definitely use them. My favorite piece of manery that I’ve seen this season is a set of cufflinks from David Yurman, the Chevron Cufflinks with Black Diamonds. You don’t normally think of pave diamonds as masculine, but these cufflinks are so manly. They’re something a sexy villain in a James Bond movie would wear, right?

Cologne

A scent is a very personal thing, so you’d have to know your millionaire very well to get him new cologne. But, if you do feel like you know him intimately enough to get involved with his smell, hand-selected cologne can make a wonderful gift. I love anything by Tom Ford for a man. It’s like sex appeal in a bottle. Or, you can get him cologne that you custom craft yourself especially for him. If you live in a major city, a quick Google can pull up several perfumeries that will help you whip up something one-of-a-kind for your guy.

An experience

This is a tricky one because millionaires generally experience whatever they want, whenever they want. But, there are some fun things you can think of if you get creative enough. You could give him a coupon book of sexual experiences you know he’d enjoy. That’s always a popular option! Another idea would be to think of something he really loves, say a museum, and then make some calls and figure out what kind of exclusive opportunities they have there. Maybe you can take a special tour of his favorite exhibit or have an after hours private dinner. You could also call up his favorite restaurant and see if you can get private cooking lessons for two. This idea takes a little extra thinking and involves more than just a credit card swipe, but it’ll be worth it when you see how much your man enjoys it.

Booze

hibikiIf your man and you aren’t quite serious yet, but you want to show him just how much you care, get him a bottle of his favorite booze. Any dude with a pallet for alcohol would appreciate that. Or, you could try to expand his horizons by getting him a bottle of the type of alcohol he loves that he may have never tried. For example, a lot of whiskey drinkers don’t know that Japan actually has some very interesting whiskey. Try something like Hibiki 17 Year Old whiskey. A lot of people are buzzing about this brand of whiskey. See what your man thinks!

Boudoir pics

Get a little something sexy and special for your man by doing your own boudoir shoot and gifting him a nice framed picture of yourself looking like a bombshell. I love this gift idea because it’s the gift that keeps giving. Not only does your man have something special to look at forever, a boudoir photo shoot can be incredibly confidence building. So, you’re kind of getting a gift, too!

Umbrella

umbrellaAnd here’s another option for a new relationship, a fancy schmancy umbrella. It sounds weird, I know. But, I’m just so in love with these Alexander McQueen Bone-Handled Umbrellas that I had to put them on the list. They’re such a statement. That handle just screams unique masculine style to me! And even the richest man in the world can’t have too many umbrellas. They’re easy things to lose and you need several of them.

I hope one of these seven gifts for a millionaire man sounds perfect for your millionaire manfriend. If you have other ideas for gifts for the man who has everything, please leave them below. I’d love to read them and I’m sure other readers will too!

Happy holidays, my love! Stay tuned for more holiday content to come!
