Racked's Present of the Day: The $195 Present No One Can Hate

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Tis the season to be shopping! Welcome to Racked's 2010 Gift Guide Advent Calendar, where everyday we'll be bringing you holiday gift ideas—from fashionable stocking stuffers to mindblowing must-haves. Click below to unveil today's present-of-the-day—and make sure to check out our full calendar of prezzies to see tons of other gorgeous giftables for your friends and loves ones.

Okay, so the $195 price tag means that this humungous jar of La Mer's "The Body Creme" is strictly for VIPs on your naughty-or-nice list—but truth is, VIPs are also the hardest people in the world to buy for. We say, if you're gonna spend the cash, better to choose something that's practically impossible to hate than to buy a dodgy gift basket or shot-in-the-dark case of wine. The super-deluxe jar of ultra-luxurious La Mer body creme takes the cake on our list of most un-hateable giftables of all time.
