Indulge yourself with the ultimate luxury delicacy. Paramount Caviar presents Acipenser Persicus, a farmed Osetra Sturgeon. Its beautiful golden color with a delicate fruity and nutty flavor is a must taste. The scrumptious eggs take at least 8 to 10 years to mature, but they are definitely worth the wait. Order Golden Osetra for a night in for yourself at around $200 an ounce or make it a social and order some for you and fellow savionaires at around $3,000 a pound. www.paramountcaviar.com

2 oz. NOLET’S Silver Dry Gin

.75 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice

.25 oz. Cinnamon Syrup

.5 oz. Grenadine

1 tsp. St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram

2 dashes Angostura Bitters

Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Shake over fresh ice. Strain into double rocks glass filled with fresh ice. Garnish with a Cloved lemon wheel.

Susan’s Secret: Some bartenders believe that gin bruises easily, which means that if it is shaken, it will change the taste/flavor of it. As a bartender, I suggest stirring, instead of shaking gin. What is your favorite gin drink for the holiday season?

A savionaire wouldn’t dare place matching his and hers vintage Patek Phillipe Calatravas on a dresser. A watch, like any other piece of fine luxury, has to be stored properly. No other watch box signifies luxury than one hand made by Style of Wood. The Ebony Macassar with Aluminum watch box is a must have! The inside of this shining box is made of Black Alcantara, which is the same material that is used for the inside of luxurious cars. There are 2 levels to this 100% hand-made Italian box: one is for 8 watches and the other is open storage space.

Susan’s Secret: The Ebony Macassar with Aluminum watch box is the perfect gift for the watch connoisseur. It is definitely worth its $1,920+ price tag.

Whether you are looking for special gifts for him, her, or home, Esta Romi has just what you need. For her, trinkets, tea, and truffles are just what she wants. For him, ties, socks, and books are right on the mark. Candles, lighters, throws, and doorstops are perfect to accent a home. Currently, gift items can only be shipped to locations within the United Kingdom.
