Don’t let the price tag on these items scare you away — if you can swing the cost, great. If not, it’s still fun to dream. Take a look at these swoon-worthy gift ideas …

Custom leather jacket
For the guy or gal who has it all, here’s one thing we’re sure they don’t: a custom, handmade leather jacket by Swedish designer Roxenstone, who now lives right here in Nashville. You’ll collaborate on what the jacket should look like (long, short, biker-style, hoodie, shearling-lined … whatever the heart desires) and you’ll be involved in the fitting process. This jacket is made specifically for one person and the design and tailoring will make that apparent. If you aren’t worried about spending a few thousand dollars for the sky-is-the-limit one-of-a-kind jacket, this is the gift he/she will remember for absolutely EVER. Museum-worthy quality for art that you actually wear, that is what Roxenstone delivers. Yes, we’re smitten.
