HEY BIG SPENDER
DELUXE GIFT PICKS 2010
W hen the incomparable Eartha Kitt first purred the holiday hit Santa Baby in 1953, it sparked the imaginations of gift givers and getters with fantasies of exchanging deluxe presents like platinum mines and light-blue convertibles. Her undeniably ritzy wish list tapped into that lingering childhood hope that a holiday haul might meet or even exceed your wildest expectations.
We’ve approached our first Holiday Buzz gift guide with a similar more-is-more mantra in mind, scouring the city for impossibly chic fashion, gourmet treats, stunning design, posh gear and small indulgences to inspire you to shop or at least dream big this season. Prices like these might not fit everyone’s budget, but picturing yourself going haute for the holidays doesn’t cost a penny.
