Christmas is perhaps the best time of year for those who like to go all out – whether that means trimming your tree with beautiful baubles or giving grandiose gifts. For anyone who wants to spoil themselves or a loved one, there are plenty of outrageously opulent options out there in 2019. Jazz up your tree To add a touch of luxury to your Christmas tree, Austrian glass and crystal company Swarovski (the same name that provided Audrey Hepburn’s necklace in Breakfast at Tiffany’s ) has a range of Christmas ornaments. You could finish your tree with a crystal tree topper that is made from a combination of mouth-blown glass and tiny, hand-glued crystals (HK$1,250, US$160) or hang a set of three Christmas ball ornaments – the largest of which is a full-cut crystal snowflake inside a mouth-blown glass ball, decorated with more than 2,200 crystals (HK$1,710). For standalone ornaments, there is a Tord Boontje-designed pine tree for HK$3,100, or if you really want to push the boat out, there is a bell jar-enclosed Christmas scene that has 617 facets for HK$4,700. The world’s most expensive Christmas tree? If a Christmas tree laden with Swarovski crystal ornaments isn’t quite opulent enough, look to the Kempinski Hotel Bahia in Marbella, Spain, for inspiration. Undoubtedly the world’s most expensive Christmas tree, the 19-foot spruce tree from the mind of British designer and diamond artist Debbie Wingham is decorated with ludicrously expensive ornaments totalling HK$122.6 million. What did Christian Louboutin create for Claridge’s Christmas tree? Inspired by peacock feathers and the art deco era, among the trinkets on the tree are an emu egg painted in diamond dust with adornments from Van Cleef and Arpels, and Chanel, while another is made with diamonds and 24-carat gold and features a US$1 million dollar bill. With a total of 950 ornaments (Wingham made 500, other artists 250 and a further 200 were used to add balance to the tree) made from interesting materials such as upcycled mink fur, wood salvaged from historical buildings and upcycled Louis Vuitton bags, the project was a little overwhelming for Wingham. “When I first saw the tree the panic set in realising just how big of a project this was,” she said. “Eleven hours after I’d finished decorating I felt a sense of accomplishment and was able to enjoy those ornaments that had taken me months and months to create.” Hong Kong’s best festive drinks and Christmas cocktails While the tree isn’t for sale, Wingham would probably make one for you if you have 100 million or so lying around. Off with a bang For Brits especially, it isn’t really Christmas without crackers on the dinner table, and there are probably none more opulent than the Midas Touch Crackers from Fortnum & Mason. The wicker basket contains six crackers, each of which contains a golden envelope whose contents grant the winner an extravagant gift. Prizes include a tea-for-two gift set and afternoon tea with champagne for four, a picnic-ready four-person hamper that comes with gold-gilded camellia china as well as four spots on F&M’s experiential tea masterclass in Piccadilly. The Midas Touch Crackers are priced at HK$51,600 (US$6,160). Fully loaded hampers For many, Christmas is about overindulgence, whether it’s the decorations on your tree or the food on your table. Christmas food hampers are an annual indulgence and the best ones bring exquisite food and drinks together in one. The Ultimate Christmas hamper from Harrods contains a staggering spread of festive favourites – plus some great wines, including a bottle of Domaine Odoul-Coquard Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2016, Oscietra and beluga caviar (as well as blinis), duck foie gras, a selection of cheeses, mince pies, and a Christmas cake among the smorgasbord. The Ultimate Christmas hamper is priced at HK$51,000. 5 best Christmas hampers on sale in Hong Kong this season Visit Santa ... in style Finally, if visiting Father Christmas at a mall isn’t your scene, you might want to consider a Lapland getaway. Private aviation group VistaJet is offering a very luxurious Christmas trip that will see you spend a few days in Munich, Stockholm or Helsinki before heading to Lapland where you and your family will see the aurora borealis en route. The journey continues after arrival through a snow-covered forest and past frozen lakes, before being whisked to your final destination on a dog sled. That final destination is a beautifully appointed private log cabin. Additional experiences include snowmobile expeditions, snowshoeing, ice-fishing, floating in the icy waters in a special suit, feasting on king crabs caught fresh by skilled divers and spending a night in a specially-constructed luxury igloo. The Myths and Legends in Lapland trip costs around HK$1.1 million for a family of two adults and two children. Want more stories like this? Sign up here .
