Bond, James Bond

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

Wooden pens from historical salvage

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

What a wonderful and unusual gift idea this is. If you have ‘the man (or woman) who has everything’ on your gift list then I’d be very surprised indeed if they have one of these conversation pieces.



Cheesecake Factory – delivered to your door

Posted on , by Jackie in Gourmet. Comments Off

There’s not much doubt about it. I can’t think of anyone I know who would love one of these delicious cheesecakes as gift.  Yes, we all say that we’re trying to eat healthily but what can you do when you receive a gift like this? I know that I can’t resist.



A Titanic gift idea

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

Newspaper reprints – an excellent gift idea

You’ve probably seen those reproductions of the first page of a newspaper – usually with dramatic headlines. Well, these are different in that your recipient will get the entire newspaper from that day.



Keep wine at the correct temperature – Corkcicle

Posted on , by Jackie in Gourmet, Luxury Gifts. 3,473 comments

This is a very cool idea – quite literally. In fact, it’s one of those ‘I wish I’d thought of that’ things. The Corkcicle is a simple and effective way of keeping your wines at the right temperature for drinking. As the company explains on their website, red wines sitting on the dining table become too warm and white wines in ice buckets become too cold.



Stylish gifts from Bentley

Posted on , by Jackie in Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

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.

Elegant and fun artisan clocks

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

Add style to your home with these timepieces

Isn’t it interesting that clocks are so fashionable as home decor these days? After all, we no longer need them to tell the time – all we have to do is glance at your phones, laptops, iPads – or almost any household appliance -and the accurate time is right there. Or maybe that’s the reason for this current trend.



Shaving kits for men

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

Stylish grooming products for men

Do you remember when shaving and grooming gifts for men were seen as being rather boring? That’s before the days of the introduction of stylish and carefully created male products such as those by the Art of Shaving – before sophisticated male grooming was born.



Wooden easels for the artist

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

Easels for the beginner or experienced painter

There’s something so very chic about using a real wooden easel when you’re painting. And the design of the traditional easel remains the best. Did you know that this traditional style has been used since the time of the ancient Egyptians? Using one of these, you’ll be following in the footsteps of the great artists of times one by.

The best colognes & aftershaves for him

There’s no doubt about it – there’s nothing quite like a man who knows quality when he sees it.Or smells it in this case. And we women all want our men to smell delicious. Fortunately the days when men would wear any fragrance they happened to be given are gone.



Books: Design & Disney

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

Gorgeous books about Disney

Who doesn’t know the name of Walt Disney? His film company is one of the most famous in the world and since the early part of the last century, his name has been synonymous with laughter and fun. Millions visit his theme parks every year. Today, the existence of these, and the Disney characters,products and movies, are something we all take for granted.



Gifts to commemorate that special year

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

Give a newspaper or yearbook for an anniversary or birthday

These make very unusual but very welcome gifts and it’s easy to see why people love them. These beautiful books contain reprints of the year you have selected. It’s great fun for people to read exactly what was going on in the world on the day they were born for example.



Historic Life magazine: Genuine editions

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

Real copies of Life magazine from history

The important thing that I have to say right away is that these items are not reprints – they are not copies – they are genuine editions of Life Magazine. They are a truly wonderful gift at an amazingly low price. Not only that, they are truly fascinating and are the sort of gift that will become family heirlooms.

Sweet gourmet gifts

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

Gifts that everyone will love

There are very few people who don’t appreciate fine foods. Sure, we’re all trying to eat as healthily as we can these days but if someone gives to a delicious treat as a gift, what can you do?It would be so rude to not indulge! By giving gourmet treats we are saying ‘go on, enjoy yourself, you deserve it’.

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

Holiday gifts that last forever

Molecular gastronomy kits

Posted on , by Jackie in For the Home, Gourmet. Comments Off

The best gift for the foodie or cocktail lover

Some people are so difficult when it comes to choosing a suitable gift but these kits will satisfy even the most jaded recipients.



Personalized gifts for men

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

Lovely monogrammed gifts for him

I’ve always liked to give personalized gifts – they show much more thought and consideration than other gifts and demonstrate that you have gone to a certain amount of trouble; even though they are easy to order and arrange online these days.



Classic Doctor Who DVDs

Posted on , by Jackie in Luxury Gifts. Comments Off

Direct from BBC America – gifts for the Doctor Who fan

It’s a bit scary to think that I remember the original Doctor Who series when it was shown on the television in the UK. Maybe it’s even more scary that I still watch it now on BBC America. But Doctor Who is now fifty years old. Here’s a piece of trivia for you – did you know that the first of the series was shown on British television the evening after Kennedy was shot? But enough of trivia.



A piece of history. Kennedy killed by sniper 1963

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

November 22, 1963.  The assassination of President Kennedy

For once, I don’t have much to say. If you were born in the mid 1950s or before, then the chances are that you remember. I do. And so many thousands, millions of words have been written since and by much better writers who are more knowledgeable about the event than I will ever be. There’s no way that I can compete with them.



Framed print & coin collections – including President Kennedy

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

Limited edition coin & framed print collections

These are a stunning gift for the lover of American history but make a splendid and thoughtful gift for anyone,especially the framed coins and commemorative prints of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Some of us remember only too well that fateful day in November, 1963.   But those who don’t are well aware that it was an event that changed the world.

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

Altair – the fabulous outdoor luxury

I am in love. Everything I recommend on Tastes, I recommend from the heart. I will never put anything on this site that I don’t absolutely adore. But this is beyond even that. I need this. I never thought I’d need, or even want a tent. But this … this is a fantasy world in the making. Luxurious, beautiful and, amazingly, practical too.

Online Italian deli plus gourmet pasta club

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

Genuine Italian food and treats available online

I’m lucky because there are some lovely specialist food shops in our local area. But nevertheless, there are many foods that I remember from vacations in Italy, or dining at lovely restaurants, that I just can’t find. So you can imagine how delighted I was to find this wonderful website.



Stylish designer pens by Visconti

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

And Italian design house Visconti present the most fabulous range of writing instruments for the truly sophisticated connoisseur of the finer things in life.

Ties for the musician and music lover

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

Fun ties with a musical theme

Many men are obliged to wear a suit during their work days. Some guys are less than comfortable with the ‘jeans and t-shirt’ casual look and prefer to dress with a little formality. However, the one opportunity they have to show their personality and interests is by the creative use of neck wear. What I love about this range is that some designs are subtle and stylish and others are suitable for, well, sillier days.



Join the chocolate-dipped strawberries club

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

A year-round gift

This is a superb gift for a loved one – although equally, you might want to treat yourself to this strawberry club membership. Here’s how it works. Join the club online and you or your recipient will receive a different pack of delightful chocolate-dipped strawberries four times in the next year. What’s great about this is that you pay as you go.



Lobby cards for the movie buff & film collectors

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

What are collectible lobby cards?

I didn’t know this until recently – although I do recall seeing examples at antique and collectors’ fairs – that lobby cards were used in the early days of the movie industry to promote their films. As the same suggests, these were used in the foyers of theaters to showcase forthcoming films.



Top candle holders & lanterns – with style

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

Romantic, stylish and ….sexy

I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t appreciate candle light.  The soft glow of flickering flames instantly adds atmosphere, mystery and romance to any room or outdoor space. And to be sensible and not fanciful for a moment, it stops us using the planet’s resources too.  But enough of practicalities … candle light adds a magic touch, whether it’s for entertaining, a dinner a deux or as an everyday relaxing treat to the senses.

Today, they are available in sophisticated and traditional designs for adults and modern, funky versions that are perfect for kids.



Armani fragrance gifts sets for men

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

Armani fragrances for the man in your life

There was a time when gifts sets were almost a default choice for people who weren’t being terribly imaginative when looking at their gifts lists. Although always welcome, these items were never really seen as being particularly appealing. Today though, now that the absolute best designers are selling these super sets, the situation is very different.



Specialty hot chocolate and cocoa for the gourmet

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

Super Italian & French chocolate treats

We can all buy various brands of hot chocolate in our local grocery stores and supermarkets but unless you have an extremely good deli nearby, it’s unlikely that you can buy these delights locally. However, they are freely available online to be delivered to your door.  And once you try them, the supermarket variety will pale in comparison. But that’s just one reason why these are a wonderful gift idea.



Fair trade decor items for home or office

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

Beautiful and ethical decor for any room

I think that most of us prefer these days to buy fair trade products whenever we can. Although the fair trade movement began in the 1940s, it’s only in the last dozen or so years that most of us have become aware of it,largely thanks to two factors – the internet which gives us greater access to information and the fact that so many people in the public eye have backed and promoted moves to guarantee fair wages and encourage better lifestyles and sustainability.



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.



Kumsi specialist teas from Russia to buy online

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

Romance, history and intrigue in a cup of tea…

Does that seem a little fanciful? Maybe but that’s the way I see these delicious teas. The company that produces these teas started their business in 1867 – exactly fifty years before the Russian Revolution – in St. Petersburg, Russia. As a designer,I have to admit that I have bought these teas simply because of the gorgeous packaging only to discover on delivery just how special they are as a beverage. And then there’s this history and romance…



Reproduction Mid Century Modern wall clocks

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

Including George Nelson and a great multi shipping facility

Mid Century Modern design, furniture, home decor and architecture are definitely my ‘thing.’ My home is from that era and I have a few select, genuine pieces of furniture but my, they are expensive. I feel that the cost is worth it because they are definitely the antiques of the future. However, there’s a place for repro too.

September 11 tributes that donate to charity

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

We can’t forget the events of 911

This collection includes coins and stamps, plus a very special framed coins-and-print set showing the names of all the victims of that terrible day that has now passed into history.

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

Craft beer club, for someone who has sampled all the local beers, and wants more

Craft beer is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? A good craft beer really shines like nothing else. If you have already sampled everything local, expanding your palate to new, varied beers becomes a chore, driving long distances to sample a new set of brews can take hours. 



Red, white & blue flowers and gifts

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

Flowers – a beautiful gift

I remember that at one time flowers were seen as a rather boring gift. Welcome certainly, but not terribly exciting. Those days are gone. Florists today have a stunning range of floral gifts that suit just about any occasion.  The wonderful thing about online florists today is that they sell so much more too.

The NEAT glass for spirit drinkers

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

Scientifically designed glass improves all spirits aroma

Scientists have designed a glass specifically for drinking spirits neat. The glass is designed around Naturally Engineered Aroma Technology, or NEAT. The NEAT glass lets the alcohol scent remain in the glass, while releasing the fine aromas of a good spirit. The strong alcohol scent we get when drinking spirits numbs the olfactory senses. By leaving the alcohol scent behind, you are enhancing your experience.



Wake up to a gentle sunrise every morning

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

A gentle and natural way to start the day

Until I discovered this wonderful ‘alarm clock’ it had never occurred to me that most of us start our day harshly and unnaturally thanks to the shrill sound of a raucous alarm going off. Even if we use a radio, the volume has to be loud enough to wake us up. I just accepted this until I came across this fantastic product. With it, you can wake up to a sunrise; as gently and naturally as we should. What a brilliant idea this is.



Are you seeking the closest shave imaginable?

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

Straight Razors are the answer

Every man should enjoy a barber giving him a shave with a straight razor. Nothing comes close to the feeling of a professional’s ministrations with a straight razor. When you can’t make it to the barber and shave parlor, the next best thing is a shave at home, like your grandfather’s grandfather use to do it.

Great gift ideas for whiskey lovers
