Getting the ideal gift is rarely easy: balancing the recipient’s taste and personality with your own desire to give something that surprises and delights.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up an array of exclusive, highly giftable items—plus three special experiences—found throughout Wynn Las Vegas and Encore. Each item chosen is perfect for that person who appreciates exceptional craft and unforgettable moments. Any one of these is sure to inspire that thrill you’re seeking at the moment of giving.
Judith Leiber evening bags are true entrance-makers that make every ensemble and occasion even more special.
For 50 years, Judith Leiber has been designing brilliant evening bags that transcend mere sparkle to become conversation starters. Since Wynn opened in 2005, the legendary label has been crafting stunning crystal minaudières inspired by some of the resort’s most iconic design elements. Among the latest: a box-style clutch that evokes the lush flowers seen in the Wynn Atrium, as well as a 3-D butterfly that takes its cue from the custom carpets and marble and glass mosaics found throughout Encore. This season, Wynn is also celebrating its partnership with renowned floral designer Preston Bailey who has collaborated with Steve Wynn on a series of spectacular floral installations at Wynn Las Vegas and the latest addition to Wynn Resorts, Wynn Palace in Macau. Two of the original oversized sculptures to debut—a whimsical carousel and colorful hot-air balloon—likewise have been reproduced as limited-edition minaudières embellished with Swarovski crystals. Perhaps you’re seeking a bag with a bit less sparkle? Lovers of stylish handbags also will delight in the limited-edition Dynasty bag by Analeena; this richly hued crocodile bag, handcrafted in Florence, Italy, is offered at Wynn Collection and priced at $17,150.
Wynn & Company Watches offers an array of exceptional and one-of-a-kind timepieces like the Roger Dubuis Excalibur Quatuor.
Among the elements that set Wynn and Encore apart as a retail destination is a selection of status timepieces that rivals collections found in Zurich and Geneva. At boutiques ranging from Chopard and Cartier to Jaeger-LeCoultre and IWC Schaffhausen—as well as an expansive Rolex boutique and the curated multi-brand experience, Wynn & Company Watches—you’re sure to find a timepiece that will dazzle even the most discerning collector. Indeed, Wynn & Company Watches is known for featuring limited or one-of-a-kind pieces that simply can’t be found anywhere else in the US. Roger Dubuis’s Excalibur Quatuor is one example, a skeleton watch that takes its name from the four spring balances within, a truly masterful showcase of horological beauty and precision; priced at $457,500, it’s only the second of this style to arrive in the US. Bovet’s Braveheart also can be found at Wynn & Company Watches, which offers this unique watch exclusively in Las Vegas. This stunning 22-day flying tourbillon is also highly versatile, with alligator straps that allow the wearer to convert it effortlessly between pocket watch, reversible wristwatch—and even a table clock. Limited to just 30 pieces, the Braveheart is priced at $409,500.
If you’re seeking the most iconic watch styles favored by today’s collectors, Patek Philippe’s Nautilus continues to rank high atop most-wanted lists. Among the most luxurious styles in the popular collection is the 5724R, crafted in 18-karat rose gold and highlighted by 44 baguette-cut diamonds totaling 7.40 carats on the bezel and lugs. The chocolate-brown dial features moon phases, date, small seconds, and power-reserve indicators. The limited-edition piece is priced at $192,557.
That 40-millimeter Nautilus is considered a unisex piece, but if you’re seeking a watch that’s decidedly feminine, consider Roger Dubuis’s Blossom Velvet Pink. The 36-millimeter watch is crafted in 18-karat rose gold and features on the dial a bouquet of delicate, colorful flowers exquisitely rendered in marquetry, all surrounded by brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 1.90 carats. A self-winding mechanical calibre ensures this piece is as serious and precise on the inside as it is beautiful on the outside. Limited to just 88 pieces, the Blossom Velvet Pink is priced at $75,500.
For an ultra-classic gift, few choices evoke thoughts of timeless elegance like Cartier. The Paris-based jeweler recently reopened its refurbished boutique at Wynn, and to celebrate is highlighting an array of exceptional pieces, including a stunner of a ring featuring a flawless emerald-cut diamond totaling seven carats; it’s priced at $1.2 million. Alternatively, Cartier’s latest jewelry collection, Amulette de Cartier, starts at $1,780. This dazzling array of pieces consists of charming, talisman-like pendants, earrings, bracelets and rings. Crafted in onyx, lapis lazuli, opal, carnelian and a variety of other gemstones, each one opens and closes like a padlock, and is meant to contain a special wish.
This opulent space pairs exceptional service—private butler, daily poolside cabana, priority entry to Encore’s nightclubs, and airport limousine transportation—with striking design and features.

Served in a Baccarat crystal champagne glass, the Ono features the rare Remy Martin Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac, Charles Heidsieck 1981 Champagne Charlie, fresh-squeezed orange juice, Sence rose nectar, and apricot puree.
Finally, for a gift that truly encapsulates a magical evening: the Ono Cocktail at Encore’s world-renowned XS nightclub.

The experience is capped by the presentation of two custom-designed Montblanc gifts: a pair of cufflinks and an 18-karat gold necklace adorned with a black pearl and diamond; each is adorned with the XS logo.
