Lauren Santo Domingo of Moda Operandi Picks 6 Absurdly Opulent Holiday Gifts For You And Yours

Published December 7, 2018

As 2018 comes to a clamorous, commercialized end, we’ve put together a multi-part holiday gift guide in preparation for the year to come. Put another way: This holiday season, we are all pigs.

For this installation of the gift guide, we consulted our favorite entrepreneur slash influencer, Lauren Santo Domingo, of e-commerce juggernaut Moda Operandi. Her picks—which range from $60 CBD gumdrops to a nearly $2,000 champagne bag—are absurdly opulent and decidedly anti-utilitarian, but definitely not boring. Behold, LSD’s impeccably curated, highly impractical holiday wish list.

LORD JONES + SIGUR RÓS CBD GUMDROPS ($60)

“This is like a homeopathic Xanax without the high. It’s very hard to eat just one.”

———

SPEAKER FROM GALERIE YVES GASTOU, PARIS (Price Upon Request)

“For a young DJ with a really cool apartment. Or maybe for a grandma who can’t hook up her Spotify account.”

———

CAROLINA BUCCI X AUDEMARS GOLD WATCH ($53,600)

“This watch has a very special surface called a Florentine finish, which is when they take 24-karat gold and hammer it with diamonds to create a rough texture.”

———

ETRO SURFBOARD ($2,150)

“This manages to simultaneously capture California cool and Italian glamour. It would look great in a Malibu beach bungalow, and it will most likely never get wet.”

———

BRANDON MAXWELL CHAMPAGNE BAG ($1,795)

“This is perfect for going to a party and bringing a hostess gift. It’s just a less-cheap version of a brown paper bag.”

———

MARIE ANTOINETTE’S JEWELRY ($300K-500K)

“There was an auction in Geneva of the jewelry that Marie Antoinette shipped to a relative before her execution. There’s tons of it! While she wore these to the guillotine, I’d probably wear them to Trump’s impeachment party.”
