Take style to the slopes by investing in these solid gold skis from Italian manufacturer Foil Skis. Arguably the most opulent skis in existence, the $50,000 (£38,000) Oro-Nero skis are made from 8,000-year-old bog oak and tted with 14-carat gold bindings and inlays. And if that wasn’t glam enough, the poles are gold, too. Adding a final touch of elegance, customers will also receive a monogrammed leather bag to protect their new equipment.
Port is a traditional festive beverage and Graham’s Ne Oublie 1882 is one of the best on the market. The exquisite aged wine is full bodied with a dense medium-sweet taste, a deep oloroso sherry colour and a distinctive fragrance that packs a powerful punch. It’s bottled in crystal decanters that are numbered one to 656 and presented in beautiful handcrafted fine leather boxes by British brand Smythson of Bond Street. With a price tag of around £5,000, it’s a real Christmas treat.
