With Christmas only a couple of weeks away, our to-do list is slowly starting to dwindle. The only thing left? Crossing everyone off our gift list. Last week, we featured 50 local gifts under $50. This week, we’re focusing on more indulgent luxury gifts worth giving to that someone special — or merely dreaming of for yourself! Some are definitely over-the-top, and others are simply a splurge gift for that someone special. Here is this year’s Luxe Loves Holiday Edition!
