4 fabulously frivolous holiday gifts

Sochi (Russia) Olympics: Ready, set, go!
Sochi (Russia) Olympics: Ready, set, go!

Sports fans will be flocking to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, where the opening ceremonies kick off Feb. 7.

If you've dreamed of surprising the family with an Olympic-size holiday gift, the only place you can purchase this one is from CoSport, a Far Hills, N.J., sports and hospitality company, the exclusive authorized reseller for Sochi Olympics tickets and hospitality packages in the United States.

Since each country's ticket inventory has been set by the Sochi Organizing Committee, it can be tricky landing individual tickets at this late date. That said, unless you're tight with the Windsors, you're going to need a hotel and meals anyway, so a hospitality package may make the most sense.

"Hospitality packages are the best deal," says Tatiana Carino, a sales agent with CoSport. "You'll get the whole package with the tickets at our desk at check-in."

Price: Three- to six-night packages including breakfast vary widely by location as well as by the nature and number of ticketed events. Based on current listings, typical single packages range from $6,200 to $18,000-plus; doubles run $8,600 to $25,000-plus.
