With a particularly acrimonious election season behind us, we could all use a little extra retail therapy this holiday season. As in years past, we searched the D.C. metro area for some of the most exotic and most useful gifts at various price points.

Need a bottle opener that can fit in a wallet? Look no further. How about a designer watch that costs more than most cars? Head to the region’s newest uber luxury location CityCenterDC to get the Cartier timepiece we highlight. Whatever your preferences for gift giving and receiving, we’ve got you covered. Happy shopping — and a happy, healthy 2017 from The Diplomat family to yours.
