What creature would you have cast in bronze?

A family pet or your favorite animal, perhaps? Whatever your choice, Danish sculptor, Bjørn Okholm Skaarup will bring it to life.

What could be better than a magical day with four-time Oscar winner Colleen Atwood?

A custom piece by the costume designer, perhaps? Fortunately, the lucky recipient of this gift will get both. He or she and a guest will spend the day with Atwood, joining forces to create a one-of-a-kind outfit inspired by the designer’s latest project, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, opening November 16 in theaters. The most fantastic day will include lunch and a collaborative design session with Atwood, a fitting to take comprehensive measurements and a photo opportunity to commemorate the experience. Adding to the fun, the giftee will receive a truly amazing swag bag including an autographed movie poster, a selection of Fantastic Beasts wands from The Noble Collection, and a collection of three HarperCollins Fantastic Beasts movie tie-in books that take you behind the scenes of the series. Pure magic.

Who wouldn’t want to feel like a kid in a candy store every single day?

Introducing the sweetest gift of them all. The giftee and three lucky guests will travel first-class to the Italian Riviera for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that needs no candy coating at all. Back home, candy – your bespoke flavors included – will arrive for up to three years, amounting to about one million pieces all together. And because all that candy has to go somewhere, a candy bar will be installed in the recipient’s home and stocked with his or her favorite Sugarfina candies.

Secret Agent experience
