December Issue Reveals 31 of the Greatest Luxury Gifts the Season Has to Offer
Robb Report, the global voice in true luxury, has outdone itself once again with the unveiling of its annual list of ultimate gifts for the holiday season. The highly anticipated December issue, on national newsstands now, includes the 33rd installment of Robb Report‘s Ultimate Gift Guide, which celebrates the season by exploring the boundaries of human creativity and connoisseurship.
Robb Report is the leading voice in global luxury, with its fingers on the pulse of the latest superlative products and experiences that today’s modern consumers seek. The magazine’s discerning and exceptionally affluent audience looks to Robb Report to inform, inspire, and impress them through directional content curated by luxury experts, including coverage of automobiles, aircraft, fine dining, travel, timepieces and fine jewelry, style and design, arts and culture, spirits, and cigars.
For the 2016 edition of Robb Report’s Ultimate Gift Guide, the editors searched far and wide for inspiration, from the seas (a 364-foot superyacht designed by Andy Waugh) and skies (the first-ever supersonic business jet) to the streets (a stunning speedster from the revived Bristol Cars) and even the stage (Eric Clapton’s 1939 Martin 000-42 acoustic guitar). This one-of-a-kind collection covers gifts both big (a larger-than-life outdoor chess set) and small (the world’s tiniest family portrait), as well as once-in-a-lifetime opportunities like a takeover for you and 23 of your closest friends of a full session of Robb Report’s coveted Car of the Year competition, including premier Napa Valley wine tastings, private air transport from Los Angeles to Napa, and fine dining courtesy of Michelin-starred chefs Thomas Keller of The French Laundry and Christopher Kostow of The Restaurant at Meadowood.
In addition to ensuring a truly spirited holiday season, the December edition of Robb Report provides a top-10 list of the most epic ski trips adrenaline junkies should seek out in 2017, as well as a guide on how best to wear the crisp-weather menswear staple of shearling. Contributors test-drives BMW’s Alpina B7 xDrive in its monthly Drive department, and in Personal Best, Christie’s chairman David Linley reflects on the house’s history, his own royal heritage, and the future of collecting.
“The editors of Robb Report spend 12 long months searching the market for the best-in-class for every issue, but this annual holiday compilation devoted to the ultimate in gift giving spotlights the most incredible products and experiences to be found anywhere, at any time of year,” said Robb Report editor in chief Brett Anderson. “We continue to surprise and delight our readers, as well as ourselves, with the incredible selection of luxury gifts featured in the December issue. The holiday season is about brightening spirits, festive celebrations with loved ones, and the joys of sharing, and we at Robb Report aspire to deliver these moments to our audience year-round. That’s what it means, after all, to live life at its best.”
Robb Report‘s focus on the festive continues online with a carefully curated collection for holiday shoppers, covering every category from gifts for the gem lover or home-design buff to gifts for the road-tripper or toastmaster, and even a selection of stocking stuffers for those who appreciate that some of the most ultimate gifts come in small packages.
