Iovine and Ross

The wedding of Interscope and Beats founder Jimmy Iovine, 62, to Liberty Ross, 37 (taking place Feb. 14 at David Geffen's Beverly Hills mansion) likely has guests stressing over a suitable gift for a couple that already has it all. New York wedding planner Marcy Blum, who has overseen nuptials for Billy Joel, LeBron James and others, says that a meaningful present for 1 percenters requires a degree of creativity. "Clients like this -- high profile and wealthy -- don't need you to get them a wine decanter or barware." Instead, try these three (likely) no-fail suggestions:

An Antique

A restored Bosendorfer piano from the Vienna Opera House is perfect "for someone who is vocal about music's future," says Blum. "It speaks to music's agelessness." $275,000; 1stdibs.com

Artwork

 Blum suggests checking art websites -- like Artsy, which sells works by established and up and coming artists -- for presents that have "longevity.”  For inspiration, Ross is a fan of Alex Israel.

A Donation

"Charity is always meaningful," says Blum. A good bet is USC's Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy, funded by a gift from Iovine and Dr. Dre (far right). iovine-young.usc .edu; 213-821-6140
