Coral Gables is inarguably a luxurious place to live. Whether you live in the southernmost parts of Our City Beautiful, in the waterfront communities, right by the Downtown or are just visiting, there’s no disputing that this city has a pretty lux way of life. In Downtown Coral Gables, you’ll find the kind of high-end gift that you still need for the holidays. Let me lend a hand with a few ideas for indulgent gifts that you can pick up right on your route home.

The Finest Fine Jewelry
There’s no shortage of bespoke jewelry shops in Coral Gables with glittering diamonds and stones in the windows. No matter whom you’re shopping for, everyone appreciates a little sparkle in his or her life, right? There are ten jewelry stores right in the Downtown area with experienced staff that can help you decide on something that feels rare and special no matter your price point. It doesn’t have to be a big diamond ring to make an impression (although that’ll do the trick!). Think about something more modern but equally as sophisticated like a single pearl pendant that can be worn every day.

Custom Cut Couture
Back in the day, everyone would have his or her clothes custom-made. Sure, we can get a whole lot more items of clothing with our off-the-rack system today, but there’s something so personalized that we lost in the era of ready-made design. Indulge in a piece of clothing that’s perfectly tailored for your loved one (Or yourself. Or both!).

Consider a hand cut guayabera from Bolado Clothiers or a couture gown from Jossie’s Couture and Fabric Design.

Home Is Where the High-Design Is
For the person who has everything, consider a piece of both home design and art to spruce up their favorite room. At Luminaire, in Coral Gables since 1984,  you’ll find the very best in home design and décor. That lamp in the corner? It’s not just a lamp, it’s an investment piece, something that will grow better and more valuable with time. Because that’s what timeless design does.

Check out Design Within Reach for more ideas for chic contemporary home furnishings. Add a little extra something special to your back yard and spruce it up with the classic Paulistano Outdoor Armchair or switch our your staid dining room table and replace it with an Eames table. That’s what I would call a very merry Christmas.
