It can be challenging to buy a gift for the person in your life that has everything. But a private jet company got creative this year and is offering a luxury that everyone could use: time. Magellan Jets curated a gift box that includes everything a wanderlust lover could want with a focus on enjoying life’s moment.

What does that mean exactly? Well, the gift box includes a bottle of Macallan 25, The Breitling Aviator 8 Curtiss Warhaw watch, and Master & Dynamic custom active noise-canceling wireless over-ear headphones or earphones with a custom pouch. Of course, private air travel is part of the gift as well, with a 10-hour Challenger 300 card included.

The Bombardier Challenger 300 is part of Magellan’s new ELEVATE membership program, which provides flyers with no blackout days or peak surcharges. Not to mention, it’s dominating the super-midsize jet category with its impressive roomy cabin, 12 windows, fully adjustable seats with fold-out tables, and individual power plugs. Plus, the lucky gift receiver will have access to a private jet with as little as 8 hours’ notice anywhere in the U.S.

“We strive to add value to our clients’ lives, and the most important result that our services provide is time and ease of use,” President of Magellan Jets, Anthony Tivnan, told Departures. “For the holidays, we’re pleased to help take the guesswork out that comes along with gift purchasing for the receiver that has everything. This gift set combines timeless products and brands with the gift of time on-board one of the popular super-mid jets today.

The cost of such a lavish gift? Magellan’s unique holiday gift box starts at $110,000 and is available through Christmas 2019. The air travel card is valid for travel through Christmas 2020, so there’s plenty of time to use it over the next year.
