Could a series of gifts in the color black be the ultimate luxury this holiday? In a season of light and color, is it possible to successfully revert to that coolest and most mysterious of colors? Yes, dear reader, it is. Black can be the most beautiful of hues, no matter the season. When objects and apparel are rendered in black, the details of their silhouettes come into sharp view. In this way, darkness can be revealing. Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent rely on black in their iconic logos to signify sophistication and edge. Another virtue? Black is universally slimming — a highly valuable feature at this time of year (or really, for any time of year). For those who love architectural shapes, mystery, suspense, photography, grit and sleek shiny cars and smartphones, black is the new black and always will be. Here are some ideas about how to gift the shade that urban dwellers actually want and will use, and the items that will remain icons long after the other colors have faded away.

It’s an easier way to shop (your eye can focus on just one shade in the visual cacophony). And when the presents are open, everything looks great together!

We’ve explored the worlds of red, pink, purple, blue, green and yellow – it’s high time for a splash of orange.

Louis Vuitton and Hermes, among other luxury brands, claim orange as their signature color, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s striking, memorable, energizing and distinctive. There’s not much of this hue present at the highest realm of luxury apparel and jewelry — making it all the more special if you take the time to find just the right thing for the orange devotee in your life.

Love Yellow? Here are the Best Luxury Holiday Gifts

The Dandelion Chandelier Holiday Hues Gift Guide is a series of curated lists of all-of-a-color luxury items and experiences for those who love a particular hue – or whose gift recipients do. It’s an easier way to shop (your eye can focus on just one shade in the visual cacophony). And when the presents are open, everything looks great together! What could be better for your holiday Instagram photos? Color-coding is clearly the way to go if you want to be revered as a style icon in the years to come (and who doesn’t want that?) We’ve explored red, pink, purple, blue and green – now yellow takes center stage.

At first blush, yellow might seem to be an odd choice for year-end holiday gifts. After all, it’s the color of the sun and newborn chicks and golden retrievers – of egg yolks and fresh-churned butter, of lemons and New York taxis. What place can it have in a season generally associated with cold and snow and ice? To that we say: what could be better? Why not embrace the sunshine in a season of long dark nights? Why not give someone a gift that bears the promise of summer in the midst of winter? It stands for strength and purpose – think lions on the savanna. Van Gogh worked extensively in yellow because it was a source of hope and optimism. And of course, yellow is arguably the color of celebration: champagne and white wine; roses and honey; birthday cake! A yellow traffic light means there’s still time. It’s not too late. So why not make the most of it? Call it saffron, citrine, blond, primrose, or even aureate: it could just the hue that your gift recipient needs as inspiration to hurry along toward their dreams.

Love Green? Here are the Best Luxury Holiday Gifts

The Dandelion Chandelier Holiday Hues Gift Guide is a series of curated lists of all-of-a-color luxury items and experiences for those who love a particular hue – or whose gift recipients do. It’s an easier way to shop (your eye can focus on just one shade in the visual cacophony). And when the presents are open, everything looks great together! What could be better for your holiday Instagram photos? Color-coding is clearly the way to go if you want to keep your followers engaged. We’ve explored red, pink, purple and blue – now green steps into the spotlight.

We’ve noticed that green is everywhere in designer fashion this holiday; the hue is giving red a run for its money as the “It” color of festive season (and quite possibly causing red to go green with jealousy). It was the Panetone Color of the Year for 2017. Attention must be paid. Green‘s versatility makes it the perfect theme for a series of gifts: it can be wholesome or decadent; playful or sophisticated; natural or constructed. In the realm of desirable green gifts, there’s always cash — but that shows a shocking lack of imagination. So what else is green and makes a great luxury gift?
