Whether you're shopping for a special occasion or want to show appreciation, we've curated a list of ten cool gifts that will add a touch of elegance and convenience. Among these, the case of fine wine and fine art stand out as thoughtful additions.

Look at the Super Veloce Aviatore Veloce Turbojet coffee maker – what a design, and it comes in very competitively at a little under $22,000. Yes, that is the correct number of zeros. There is one for ten times that price, by the way.

  5. Home spa, sauna and plunge pool

  6. Personalized home fragrance

  7. Case of Chateau Margaux 1996

  8. Indoor golf simulator

  9. Home bar

  10. Rain Bird rain and ice sensor

Let's dive into our list of carefully selected gift ideas for the discerning homeowner.

1. Spectacular Fine Art:

Having had the privilege to view many of our clients’ luxury homes, the artwork rounds off these beautiful residences.

Choosing pieces of artwork that are not only in keeping with the home style and unique personal tastes but also increase in value can be tricky. Consulting with the correct gallery and expert makes all the difference.

Why not take a look at Heidi Vaughn’s gallery to see if anything takes your fancy and for expert advice?

Approximate price: $1,000 to how much do you want to spend 😊






2. Wine Cellar or Wine Room:

Owners of luxury homes often appreciate fine wine. Enhance their wine collection with a custom wine cellar or wine room. This will keep their vintages at the perfect temperature for laying down or drinking now (sometimes drinking now ends with laying down) and ready for entertaining guests.

CCH has installed wine rooms recently.

Approximate installed price, depending on home modifications required: $60,000



3. Designer Furniture:

High-end furniture from a renowned designer can transform a room into a masterpiece. Look for unique pieces that match the homeowner's style and personality. Consider a luxurious lounge chair, an elegant dining table, or a one-of-a-kind coffee table. We work with a couple of Houston’s TOP interior designers. Please drop me an email if you’d like an introduction.

This piece is from Fleming & Howland out of the UK and is very reasonably priced at around $9,000.

4. Luxury Kitchen Appliances:

A top-of-the-line kitchen deserves top-of-the-line appliances. Gift them with the latest in luxury kitchen technology, such as a smart refrigerator, a professional-grade espresso machine, or a range with advanced cooking features.

Below is the Aviatore Veloce Turbojet:


Super Veloce sets itself apart with extraordinary espresso machines inspired by automotive engineering. Crafted with carbon fiber, titanium, and aviation-grade aluminum. This coffee machine, which can also be used to make tea, resembles a miniature [aero jet engine], showcasing meticulous design and precision. The Aviator Veloce TurboJet espresso is a dream come true. Only 100 of these coffee machines have been produced, so this is as much a premium coffee machine as it is a collectible.

Approximate price: $21,565 (I WANT one of these)

There is also a Super Veloce Royale for $205,000 (pictured below), but this is a commercial machine.

5. Home Spa Retreat:

Create a spa-like experience at home with a sauna or plunge pool or turn their bathroom into a personal sanctuary.

Plunge pools and saunas are definitely trending - our clients are approaching us to add them to their homes.

Less expensive are high-quality bathrobes, scented candles, plush towels, and a relaxing sound system that can make their daily routines feel like a luxurious getaway.

The sanctuary pictured above had an approximate price tag of over $2 million, which included a 15-room home in Scotland.

6. Personalized Home Fragrance:

Elevate the olfactory experience of their home with a custom home fragrance. Many high-end brands offer bespoke scents that can be designed to evoke their unique preferences and memories.

Take a look at some websites that specialize in this arena:

Consumers are increasingly looking to fragrance as a decorative accessory – a subconscious tool that can instantly transform the mood and character of a home.

Additionally, home fragrance products align with consumers’ lifestyles that meet their shifting needs for overall health, wellness, and safety.

Approximate price: $100

7. Case of Fine Wine or Two, or Three:

There is a simple and fundamental law of the universe concerning bicycles and cases of wine. The optimum number to have on hand is N+1, where N is how many you currently have.

A case of fine wine is the perfect gift for wine connoisseurs. Select a variety of premium wines from renowned vineyards around the world. Whether they enjoy reds, whites, or sparkling wines, a case of carefully curated bottles will undoubtedly be a delightful addition to their wine cellar or collection. This gift combines sophistication with the pleasure of savoring exceptional vintages.

Approximate price for a single bottle of Chateau Margaux 1996: $1,500. For the case – about $12,000.

8. Indoor golf simulator:

CCH has installed two Full Swing golf simulators recently and they are FANTASTIC!!

For golf enthusiasts, the ultimate luxury is being able to practice their swing and enjoy a round of golf from the comfort of their own home.

An indoor golf simulator is the perfect gift for those who are passionate about the sport and/or want their children to gain a powerful life skill that they can take anywhere in the world.

Indoor golf simulators come equipped with high-quality screens, sensors, and cutting-edge software that provide an immersive golfing experience.

This gift isn't just about golf; it's about bringing the golfing experience to their luxury home for family, friends, and business associates. Imagine a dinner party that includes playing a round.😉

Approximate price: $75,000 plus install costs

9. Personalized Home Bar:

Transform their entertainment space with a personalized home bar. This could include a custom-built bar with elegant finishes, stylish barware, and unique glassware.

Add a selection of top-shelf spirits, artisanal bitters, and cocktail recipe books for a complete home bar experience. They can now play the role of the perfect host, crafting signature cocktails for their guests with style and flair.

Approximate starting price (not for the above): $30,000+

Protecting a luxury home from the elements is essential. The Rain Bird Rain and Ice Sensor is a smart addition to any high-end property. This innovative device automatically detects rain and freezing conditions, allowing the sprinkler system to adjust accordingly. No more wasting water during a downpour, and the added convenience of automatic adjustments is sure to be appreciated.

(I’ve had so many inquiries from husbands about this as a holiday gift for wives; you wouldn’t believe it. Why not install it the night before, making it a wonderful surprise on the day?).

Conclusion:

When choosing a gift for owners of luxury homes, consider their tastes, preferences, and the ambiance of their home.

Whether it's the golf simulator, a case of fine wine for their collection, or one of the other luxury gifts on our list, your thoughtfulness will surely be appreciated.

These gifts add a layer of uniqueness and convenience to their luxurious lifestyle, making their home even more special.

Choose a gift that reflects their personality and style, and you'll be sure to impress and delight the discerning homeowner.

Don’t forget, as a homeowner, you can gift yourself 😊

If in doubt, go for the Aviatore espresso machine!
