Indy Racing – signed & framed memorabilia

If you have a racing fan on your gift list, this site is the place for you. Danica Patrick, Marco Andretti, Helio, Tony …. they are all represented here – and more. Many of these framed photographs and collages are signed by the stars themselves. Most other sports are featured too.



Scandinavian decor items by Playsam – or are they toys?

Posted on , by Jackie in For the Home, Kids, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Super stylish from Scandinavia

I fell in love with these the moment I saw them. They are, depending on where you see them, described as both ‘toys’ and ‘home ornaments’ and I’m not arguing; I think they qualify as both. They are superbly stunning as decor items in your home or office and yet any child would also be delighted to own such a wonderful piece.



Gifts for the Ferrari driver – or fan

For lovers of all  things Ferrari

And that includes me. This website features official Ferrari merchandise and includes clothing, bags, sunglasses, toys and home decor / desk items. There are also sets of historic photographs, limited edition items and special products that have been personally signed by Alonso and Massa – the current Ferrari Formula One drivers.



Personalized stationery and journals

A truly thoughtful gift

Something that has been out of style for so many years is suddenly red hot! There was a time when everyone had personalized stationery, note cards and bookplates but in recent years they have been items that belonged to a more elegant era. Now though, they are enjoying a huge revival.



1953 Ferrari 500 F2 – ultimate gift handcrafted automobiles

Posted on , by Jackie in Featured, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Do you have anyone on your gift list who would like a vintage Ferrari? Or Bugatti? I know that they are gifts I’d be delighted to receive. Unfortunately, they are out of my league! But these lovingly-created, hand-crafted, intricate miniatures are the next best thing. Most are limited editions and as such, will increase in value over the years.



The Ferrari Collection – fashion, style and gifts

Posted on , by Jackie in Accessories, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Ferrari = style

Ferrari is more than an automobile marque – it’s the definition of style, speed and passion. Whether it’s a racing car at Spa, or a road car pulling up outside the Monte Carlo Casino, Ferrari has an unmistakable panache.  In Italy, it’s a way of life for the tifosi. We can’t all own the car but we can buy luxury branded goods as gifts or for a touch of luxury for ourselves.



Designer silver gifts from Tonino Lamborghini

Posted on , by Jackie in Featured, Luxury Gifts. 3,605 comments

There are just a handful of words that exude luxury – and one of those is the name of Lamborghini. Add to this the words ‘Italian design’ and ‘made in Italy’ and you can be sure that these beautiful silver gift items are truly special.



Monaco Grand Prix Formula One: Vintage posters

Posted on , by Jackie in Arts, Decor, For the Home, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Classic and beautiful posters for the Monte Carlo Grand Prix

These evocative and delightful posters are a must for the motorsport fan but even if you’re not a follower of auto sports, these posters, which are available framed or unframed, make a lovely display in your home or office, particularly when a few are grouped together. They transport us to times gone by and to one of the most romantic, glittering places in Europe.



Stylish gifts from Bentley

Luxury goods fromBentley

Do you remember the first time you rode in (or even drove) a Bentley? It was a long time ago for me but I still remember how incredibly luxurious it was – so unlike any car I’d ever traveled in. Today, Bentley make an exclusive collection of gifts items, all showing the famous and prestigious B logo.



Stylish accessories from the most luxurious brand – Bentley

Posted on , by Jackie in Featured, Luxury Gifts. 1,629 comments

What epitomizes style and luxury better than Bentley? No arriviste, Bentley is a company that has been known for quality since 1919 and have long been considered the arbiter of refined, traditional taste and values.



Historic Ferrari photographs for the collector

Posted on , by Jackie in Arts, Decor, For the Home, Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Ferrari photographs – heirlooms in the making

I find that there are three types of Ferrari fans. The first are those who spend weekends during the season watching Formula One practice, qualifying and the race, those who drive the road cars and those who just – like me – love the racing, the history, the tradition and the luxury Italian styling. For us, there is nothing quite like Ferrari.



Motorcycle gear for girls

Gifts and gear for the lady biker

Ladies – do you know where to buy a pink leather biker jacket? How about a pink crash helmet? Just because you have a motorcycle (or are a regular pillion rider) it doesn’t that you can’t be stylish and … well … feminine. There’s no need to hide your figure in those bulky biking clothes that are mostly,let’s face it, made for the guys.
