Talk of the economy, the cutbacks in retail spending and frugality is so depressing that I decided to compile a money-is-no-object gift list.  I used to get the lecture all that time that money doesn't grow on trees.  Well, if it did, these would be the presents I would be picking:

The Luxury Essentials 002
Crème de
la Mer The Luxury Essentials
: Includes Crème de
la Mer (2 oz.), The Lifting Face Serum and The Eye Concentrate in a limited edition mother of pearl round box.  The Luxury Essentials brings together three La Mer signatures – Crème
de la Mer, The Lifting Face Serum and The Eye Concentrate.  Presented in a sumptuous
pearlized leather box, this miraculous set boasts extraordinary results.  Available exclusively at Bergdorf Goddman and Neiman Marcus.  Suggested Retail Price
$630

Bobbi_Brown_Beauty_Trunk
The Bobbi Brown Exclusive Makeup Trunk contains just about every Bobbi Brown product in the line, including brushes.  The case is hand-crafted in platinum leather.  Of course, for $ 2000, it would be nice if Bobbi were to come to your house and deliver it, but still….quite fab nonetheless.  Santa, you must have "forgotten" this last year.  So I'm adding it to my list.  Again.  Available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.

TRLmtdSet-DEC08
Amore Pacific Time Response Gift Set: 
Amore Pacific uses every vital part of the green tea plant in its' Time Response treatments, merging beauty and health in this anti-aging, high performance skincare line designed to restore skin to its optimum, youthful state.  Using Time Response on your skin each day equals the antioxidant value of drinking 15 cups of green tea.  At Neiman Marus.


El-sensuous-solid




Estee Lauder Cathedral Square Solid Perfume Compact.  I'm fascinated by Russian architecture and when I saw this Sensuous solid perfume compact, I fell in love with it.  Estee Lauder solid perfume compacts are highly detailed and collectible miniature works of art.  One of the highlights of my life was seeing a collection of the solid perfume compacts in Mrs. Estee Lauders private office in New York in September.  The Cathedral Square Solid Perfume Compact retails at $300 and is available exclusively at Neiman Marcus.

Space_Laughter_Deluxeset
Space NK
has put it's signature fragrance into a Deluxe Gift Set, with everything you need for incorporating more Laughter into your world.  I adore the Laughter fragrance, with it's citrus top notes of bergamot, grapefruit and lime.  This Deluxe set includes the Eau de Toilette, Bath Oil, Shower Gel, Body Lotion and a Candle.  Start with the shower gel, layer the body lotion and then spritz the Laughter EDT for a complete fragrance experience.  Or, light the candle, fill the bathrub, then layer the body lotion.  Total indulgence. $225.

If money were no object, what beauty or fragrance items would you put on your list for Santa?  Leave a comment and let me know!
