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.

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.Read More
