According to official figures, to be a part of NYC's one percent you've got to bring in at least $493,439 a year. How you do that is not our problem; how you spend it during the holidays, however, is. New York has no shortage of pricey boutiques, but we've picked the top fifteen for giving a gift to the One Percenters on your list. From $300 salt to a $1,225 adult toy, these shops carry merchandise for the pickiest customers and gift recipients.

Just keep in mind that whatever you buy must be neatly gift-wrapped, because the first person you need to impress is really the assistant/butler/multilingual maid. And remember?sticky bows from the Duane Reade greeting card aisle are for the 99%. Got any other suggestions? Do let us know in the comments.
