Alain Ducasse's Bizarrely Beautiful Holiday Gift List (VIDEO)

With two dozen upscale French restaurants to his name, we'd expect Alain Ducasse to have exquisite, and expensive, taste (After all, at one of his former New York restaurants, he presented Cartier and Waterman fountain pens to diners when they signed the check). For this holiday season, Ducasse detailed his choice indulgences for gourmet lovers, in video form, for Ducasse's picks range from Pierre Hermes macarons to Hermes stationery -- both lovely gifts, but certainly not cheap ones. If you can't afford Ducasse's suggestions, at least watch the artistic video below. Consider it virtual window shopping.
