1. Loewe High-Top Dinosaur Sneaker ($690)

Spanish luxury house Loewe was apparently thinking dinosaurs and a type of Moroccan slipper when it created these sneakers. But those upturned toes and the forest-green suede sure bring to mind Santa's workshop. Buy them at Loewe.

2. Tiffany & Co. Greenhouse ($275,000)

Though your plants won't notice the difference, this 18-inch-tall miniature greenhouse is constructed of sterling silver, with a copper floor and museum-grade nonglare glass. It can display anything you want, but Tiffany also has small terra-cotta flowerpots if you need them. Buy it at Tiffany & Co.

3. Glenlivet Whisky Coin (approx. $9,000)

This 2-ounce gold coin holds a drop of the world's oldest whisky: Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862. Minted in 300 copies, it depicts Queen Elizabeth II on one side and a whisky distillery on the other. The coin is valid currency in the South Pacific island nation of Tuvalu, where it's worth less than 40 U.S. dollars. Buy it at Amazon.

4. Club Loofah Gift Subscription ($35 or more)

A loofah is nice, but a year of loofahs is a holiday gift your loved one won't be able to forget. With the Club Loofah gift subscription, a new organic sea sponge will arrive at the door every month, ready to provide 30 days or so of deep exfoliation. Buy it at Club Loofah.

5. Calvin Klein Jacquard Shoulder Warmer ($490)

When one sweater isn't enough, the top third of a second sweater could be the answer. The jacquard patchwork squares are loosely knit to lend the garment a charming homespun look. Buy it at Nordstrom.

6. Marie Antoinette Wax Bust ($125)

The queen who lost her head in 1793 is one of several historic figures available as wax busts from Cire Trudon, once the candlemaker to French royalty. Marie stands 8.5 inches tall and has a wick, but she's made more for collecting than burning. Buy it at Trudon.
