Presents for Pampered People

2005 Top 10 Holiday Gift Ideas

THE SPEED DEMON:
PORSCHE CAYMAN
___________________________

Is there a better way to kick off the new year than with a spin in a brand-new Porsche? We think not. The Porsche Cayman S is a small, quick, muscular and road-hugging sportscar. Be careful. It has bite.



THE CHOCOHOLIC:
BECOME THE CANDY BAR

___________________________


What could possibly be sweeter than a sinful chocolate bar or a relaxing massage? Combining the two, of course! The Spa at The Hershey Hotel offers treatments that probably taste as good as they make you feel. From facials to massages, indulging in chocolate has never felt this good for you.



THE STRESSER:
PEACE OF MIND AT THE WESTIN
___________________________


The Renewal Suite at The Westin New York at Times Square makes it easy to leave the stress of the holidays behind. Decompress amid soothing décor, exercise in the comfort of your suite, then unwind in the whirlpool tub. It will be hard to return to the daily grind after this.



THE ROMANTIC:
LIGHT A CANDELA
___________________________


With the soft glow of candles, these portable little battery-powered lamps are a safer and cleaner alternative to flames. And they are sexy and modern in a '60s James Bond kind of way.



THE GLOBETROTTER:
BARGING THROUGH PROVENCE
___________________________

Sightsee in the South of France by barging from Avignon to Carcassonne. With a maximum of eight passengers aboard the quaint Anjodi, the journey is an intimate week-long tour of Provence. It's better than a road trip, because your floating hotel takes away the worry of finding nightly accommodations. Bonne journée.



THE SUGAR MOMMA:
EXTRAVAGANT TASTES
___________________________

The priciest chocolate in the world has a conscience. Tuscan-based Amedei makes its chocolate from the rarest cocoa beans on earth, and also assures its farmers are treated fairly.



THE FOODIE:
DUCASSE TOME
___________________________


Weighing in at over ten pounds, Alain Ducasse's Grand Livre de Cuisine may look intimidating, but once you open it you'll find that even the novice can feel confident attempting the recipes inside. Arranged around one hundred "basic" ingredients, there is plenty to choose from.



THE MOVIE BUFF:
A BIJOU OF A MOVIE THEATER
___________________________

Hollywood isn't the only town with cinema history. In San Francisco, the Bijou Hotel honors movies filmed in the city by decorating all of its rooms with movie stills. Plus, there's the Petite Theatre Bijou in the lobby, which plays old movies filmed in San Francisco.



THE YOGI-IN-TRAINING:
TEA HERE NOW

___________________________


Who doesn't need some help these days finding inner peace? Tea Here Now gives insight into using tea to live consciously and in the now, and teaches that tea is a metaphor for everything good in life: peace, balance, equanimity and mindfulness. No downward facing dog necessary; just curl up with it while sipping your favorite tea.



THE WINE NERD:
KICK THE ICE BUCKET
___________________________

No more refrigerators or messy ice buckets needed for your favorite Champagne. The Prestige Champagne Cooler takes only minutes to chill a bottle, and it keeps it at the perfect temperature for hours.
