Jonathan Cheban knows exactly what he wants this holiday season, but will anyone be able to actually find it?
“I’ve been on the hunt for this pink Goyard [bag] from Japan that is impossible to find,” he recently told Page Six. “So I’m hoping somebody will find it for me and give it to me as a gift. They only made it for, like, one season, it was only available in Japan. That’s the exclusive one to get.”
The reality star, 44, said he first heard about the exclusive bag from a “Hypebeast kid,” and has been on its trail ever since, its scarcity turning it into something of a streetwear Holy Grail.
“I’ve searched everywhere for this pink and they’re like, ‘Nah, that’s impossible, nobody has it, but we got yellow or green,’” he explained. “But I don’t want yellow or green, I want pink. And they’re like, ‘You’re never going to find it.’ So, of course, I want the pink Goyard.”
But gift giving isn’t always about finding the most exclusive gift. Cheban, who admits he’s not great shopping for others, already knows what he’ll be giving his family and friends this holiday season — gift cards.
“Sometimes gift cards are real fun,” he said. “This year I’m giving everyone gift cards to BurgerIM, which I’m the face of. It’s a big burger chain. It’s going to be kind of fun because my face is going to be on the gift cards.”
What Cheban’s looking forward to most this December isn’t just the possibility of finally landing his elusive Goyard bag, but slowing down and spending time with his family.
“I love hanging out with my family because I travel so much, I never get to see everybody a lot. I’m always on the run,” he said. “I just need to relax. I’ve been pretty much doing appearances and events and hosting stuff for the last three months.”
The Foodgod also has some dining plans on tap. He said he’d like to pay a visit to his favorite holiday restaurant, Filomena in Washington, DC, if he gets the chance.
“It’s impossible to get in,” he said. “They decorate the whole restaurant for Christmas. It’s a really incredible Italian restaurant. There’s a chef’s table in the back where you sit privately and you’re like in someone’s old living room, with amazing decorations. There’s a Christmas tree in the middle of it and it’s all snowy outside and it’s in DC.”
But whether he’s at Filomena or eating at home with his family, what Cheban is most looking forward to eating this December are all the holiday specialties — like egg nog and Christmas tree-shaped treats.
“I don’t think holiday meals are that special, you just eat a lot more that day,” he said. “But all the stuff that comes with holiday time, that you normally don’t see during the year, is really more exciting for me.”
