If you’ve had the pleasure of leafing through Neiman Marcus’s famed Christmas Book, the ultimate luxury gift guide, you know that in addition to creating an element of fantasy, the catalogue is also about the curation and discovery of fabulous products. So we wanted to know – if you could create the ultimate wish list for the holidays, what items would be on your list? We reached out to a few of our favorite fashionistas to find out what they’re shopping – and wishing for this holiday season.
Today we present Rosemin Manji, founder of RR & Co., a luxury consulting firm based in Dubai. In addition to her flawless style, her fashion cred runs deep. She counts Tom Ford as a mentor and is the go-to for luxury brands like Burberry, Christian Louboutin, Giuseppe Zanotti and Givenchy, etc. to build their retail presence in the Middle East. It should come as no surprise then that Rosemin is a woman of exquisite taste. Take a look at her gift guide below!
Rosantica Himalaya Pearl Necklace
My sister is always on the go with two kids but she loves looking polished even when it’s for the school run. I love this multi-strand pearl necklace which instantly glams up the most simple outfit.
Monica Vinader Fiji Chain Bracelet
For all my friends this holiday season, I will be getting the Fiji Chain Bracelet from Monica Vinader. As soon as I discovered this brand I was hooked. Most items can be personalized and another bonus is that the adjustable straps make it easy for everyone to wear and layer.
Tom Ford Natalia Leather Bag
The Natalia is one bag I have my eye on and I am hoping Santa will put it under my tree…hint hint!
Erdem Anja Embellished Cloqué Dress
A little something for me while I am shopping for everyone else. Slightly obsessed with Erdem’s new Autumn/Winter collection and this dress is the perfect dress for a holiday dinner party.
Paris. Portrait of a City by Jean Claude Gautrand
I love giving books as gifts. I love sharing my favorite spots in Paris and writing a personal note with this book. I hope the recipient will enjoy this magical city as much as I do.
I love the ethos of One for One with the TOMS brand. The universal aviator or the ‘Yvette’ style are perfect gifts.
Elie Saab’s La Collection des Essences
There are four distinct scents in the collection: Rose, Amber, Oud and my personal favorite, Gardenia. Beautiful packaging and a long lasting scent makes this the perfect gift.
Tom Ford Illuminating Primer
I always get asked about my favorite beauty products. This one is a universal product that everyone needs in their make-up case. It helps makeup set flawlessly through the evening and is long lasting. Perfect stocking stuffer.
