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 Vox.com, 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.

Shopping for the friend who has everything, or your significant other who has significantly expensive taste: This can be the most excruciating task, but luckily we're here to help. New York has no shortage of pricey boutiques, but we've picked the top fifteen for holiday gifting some of the priciest (and most unique) items around.

From candles with French royal heritage to a $20,000 copy of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Beautiful and The Damned, these shops know how to satisfy the pickiest customers (and gift recipients).

Got any other suggestions? Do let us know in the comments. And if you're trying to find a present for a high-maintenance loved one with particularly impossible taste, ask away—maybe we'll be able to point you in the right direction.
