1. G550 Mercedes-Benz SUV, Starts at $119,900
This sport utility vehicle is as elite as it gets with only 2,000 made each year for U.S. distribution. This boxy mammoth beast was originally used by the military. Thirty-seven years later, they are now the "wagon" of choice for diplomats, celebrities and the Kardashian clan. Who cares if you don't go off-roading—the mall is so much easier to get to. (CZ)
Mercedes-Benz of Salt Lake City, 575 S. State, Salt Lake City, 801-257-3000,


2. Canada Goose Chateau Parka, $745
Designed for the extreme Arctic cold, Canada Goose is the ultimate in luxury down parkas. It takes 450 hours to create each parka. The Chateau has a smooth, sleek fit, mid-thigh length, duck-down insulation and elastic cuffs with a removable coyote-fur hood. Available in multiple styles and colors. (CZ)
Bastille, 79 S. Rio Grand St., Salt Lake City, 801-456-0330; 6197 S. State, Murray, 801-892-9545,


3. Spring 2015 Chanel Bag, $1,995
Let us count the ways we love this bag: It's turquoise, it's quilted, it's patent leather! The play of hip texture and color against the uber-classic Chanel style is so much fun. Don't worry if this pretty number gets picked up before you get to it; Name Droppers has more Chanel beauties on offer this holiday season. Name Droppers is a high-end consignment shop for both women and men featuring brand-name clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry—including top brands you don't always find in Utah. You're getting the real deal for a steal. (LL)
Name Droppers, 3355 S. Highland Drive, Salt Lake City, 801-486-1128,

4. Furkini, $120
This fur bikini is famous. Google "furkini Kim," and you'll see Kim Kardashian modeling the one she bought at this store in 2015. It sells so quickly, it can't be kept in stock. Made in-house in Park City, it features a triangle top and G-string bottom made out of rabbit fur. No sun necessary for wearing. (CZ)
Alaska Fur Gallery, 537 Main, Park City, 435-649-1241,


5. "Glimmer" Oil Painting, 48 Inches by 48 Inches, by Brent Godfrey, $7,000
This stunning abstract oil painting is just the statement piece your house needs; it will keep you in a festive mood year-round. The gallery is not going to run out of unique and enviable Godfrey paintings any time soon. A Gallery's high-end pieces range from abstract to the classically figurative. If you want to start collecting fine art, be sure you visit A Gallery because, in addition to custom framing and mirrors, A Gallery offers art consultations. The gallery's changing exhibitions also are worth following. (LL)
A Gallery, 1321 S. 2100 East, Salt Lake City, 801- 583-4800,


6. Eames Lounge Chair & Ottoman, $3,800
Own a true icon of modern design. This is not a reproduction but an early 1960s vintage set. When Charles and Ray Eames first designed the chair in 1956, Charles explained that the designers wanted it to have the "warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." This is all that: soft black leather and original rosewood shell—in excellent condition. In such good shape, in fact, it belongs in a museum or in your living room. Includes original Herman Miller stamps. (CZ)
Tomorrow's House, 411 S. 800 East, Salt Lake City, 385-222-5373,


7. O.C. Tanner Pomellato Diamond Pendant Necklace, $9,350; and Earrings, $2,500
What are the holidays without some serious shimmer? You will stun, day or night, casual or dressed to the nines, in this Pomellato 18k rose-gold diamond pave chain with diamond pave disc pendant. Complete the look with matching rose-gold diamond pave earrings. O.C. Tanner has been in Utah since 1927 selling jewelry, timepieces and gifts, including frames and glass work. (LL)
