When it comes to buying Christmas gifts, the famous saying 'It's the thought that counts' doesn't ring true for all.
Most of us have hard-to-buy-for people in their lives: from those who already own everything they could want or need to individuals with a wish list to rival the average annual salary.
But if you're flummoxed by a loved one's lust list and money is no problem, there is a solution in the form of luxury gift website VeryFirstTo.com, which dubs itself 'the first website for individuals to learn about, and have, newly launching luxury products and experiences.'
This 4,500 24-carat gold egg with vodka once enjoyed by 19th Century St Petersburg aristocracy inside is perfect for the demanding recipients this Christmas
It aims to showcase the most desirable
items within the world of technology, fashion, home, leisure, beauty and
beyond; as well as the latest must attend venues and events.
One such gift just available on the site which is sure to please the most demanding of recipients is the super premium vodka housed in the Faberge-inspired egg.
If the eye-catching 24-carat gold egg isn't enough to impress, the vodka itself is filtered twelve times and was once enjoyed by 19th Century St Petersburg aristocracy.
If you're keen to impress though, you must act fast because only five golden eggs are produced each year.
Other super luxurious items perfect for a show off include the Z.Boat by Zaha Hadid (300,000), the 160,000 Azature 267 carat black diamond nail polish adored by Kelly Osbourne and an Elliot Rhodes Megalodon Shark Tooth Belt Buckle (1,950).
If the Z.Boat takes your fancy, the site will direct you to the seller who will then consider your purchase application, but other gifts such as the vodka egg can be bought instantly from the site.
The Z.Boat by Zaha Hadid is the most expensive product on the site and will set you back 300,000
And if you have qualms that the gifts may not be up to standard then you can rest easy knowing that they have been hand selected by a panel of
arbiters of taste and style also known as ‘Connoisseurs’.
The panel includes It girl Bip Ling, fashion designer Giles Deacon, Joan Burstein CBE and Co-founder of Browns and Luke Johnson, Chairman of Royal Society of Arts and Gails.
The 160,000 Azature 267 carat black diamond nail polish as seen on Kelly Osbourne is one of the top sellers on the site
But it all comes at a price with VIP membership to the site setting you back 50 before you have even contemplated shelling out a few thousand pounds on gifts.
Your membership grants access to exclusive products, bespoke items
and special pre-opening events.
'Having found it impossible to establish
what products and experiences brands were about to launch and what
exciting new brands were soon be born, I thought it about time there was
a site that identified such launches and enabled people to be amongst
the very first to have them' said founder Marcel Knobil.
It girl Bip Ling and renowned designer Giles Deacon have carefully selected the coolest brands for the site
