It’s time to STACK THOSE WISHLISTS!
Every year I try to focus as much as possible on affordable gift giving ideas. Affordable is fabulous, but even when gifting on a budget I usually end up finding something that is considered luxe or luxury that I know my favorite people will enjoy.
If you’re looking for an under $20 Gift Guide, don’t worry, it’s coming!
Here are a list of the products I found this year that I feel are perfect for giving a luxe gift! Though the title of this post says “for her” most of the items listed below would be great for “him”, too!
Lovesac Footsac Blanket *($150.00-$250.00). Stay with me on this one. Yes, the beanbag place makes blankets and IMO they’re making the BEST. The Footsac has pockets for your FEET (my feet are always freezing so it’s like they went in my head and made this for me).
Beyond that the Footsac is a blanket with just the right amount of weight that you feel protected (like a weighted blanket would but it doesn’t feel like it’s too much) and it keeps you toasty throughout the night. I have the worst time falling asleep but with this blanket I can pass out in minutes.
Bonus, you don’t wake up sweaty. You’re just still comfy, cozy. I don’t get how they did it, but I need about 30 of them.
Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Circle Cardigan ($116.00). Speaking of cozy I could basically fill this ENTIRE LIST up with Barefoot Dreams items. I have several of the cardigans (they do go on sale sometimes if you watch closely at Nordstrom and QVC) and can guarantee they’re worth it.
Trunk Club (FREE?!). SPEAKING OF BAREFOOT DREAMS! You can have it sent to you to try FOR FREE via Trunk Club! Trunk Club is a service offered in conjunction with Nordstrom where if you have the Nordstrom Debit or Credit you can get a monthly trunk of clothes sent to your house for FREE. If you keep something, you’ll pay for it (obv) but the service itself can’t be beat.
A gift card to Trunk Club would be the IDEAL GIFT! At least for me. 😉
If you don’t have a Nordstrom Debit or Credit you can still use Trunk Club but there will be a $25 styling fee of which you can use towards the purchase of an item sent in the Trunk.
UGG Ansley Slippers ($99.95). I LOVE UGG SLIPPERS. It’s like they literally hug your feet. Currently I’m rocking my second or third pair of the Dakota style, but next time I’m getting the Ansley. The Dakota are awesome but the bow tied at the top ALWAYS comes undone and I step on it and trip myself up. The Ansley will be next for me.
T3 SinglePass Luxe 1″ Flat Iron *($180.00). If you or your intended have thin hair with baby hairs going wild and cowlicks close to the scalp you NEED this flat iron in your life. For longer, thicker hair I recommend this one.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer *($399.99). You’ve heard the stories, I’m sure, but this hair dryer is truly wonderful, particularly if you have longer hair that is thick. My hair is the opposite of that and I’ve still found that it helps to eliminate frizz and dry my hair quicker. If $399 it just a little too much I also recommend this one.
Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Set ($230.00). In these sets you get a luxury eyeshadow palette, classic eyeliner, a mascara, a blush, a lip liner, a lipstick and a lip lustre – all housed in a makeup bag covered in kisses!
The one linked & pictured above is the Golden Goddess Set and it’s my pick from all of them, but you’ll have several options and can tailor it to your recipients likes.
Bath & Body Works 3-Wick Candles ($24.50). Are these considered luxury? I feel like if you’re paying full price that’s a YES. Usually you can get a deal on them where they’re half off or buy one get one. Either way, they’re a fabulous gift that I personally can’t get enough of!
Antica Farmacista Prosecco Home Ambiance Reed Diffuser *($66.00). Just in case you scoffed at the BBW Candle price you can gift the yummiest fragrance of them all. This reed diffuser is perfect to ensure the scent will reach larger spaces.
Lana Jewelry Black Lariat Necklace ($780.00). Who doesn’t like to see a little glint of gold down their décolletage?! This necklace is beautiful and complementary to everyone, I’d say. If $780 is way too much check out this major $48 dupe.
Kendra Scott Elisa Filigree Pendant Necklace ($65.00). This is a necklace I always get compliments on so I own a couple of them in varying shades. They shine beautifully and can be worn dressed up or down.
Last but not least….
Gucci GG Marmont 2.0 Matelassé Leather Shoulder Bag ($980.00). Yes, I did that. It’s a bag that’s at the top of my “I’d die for you” material items wishlist. It’s shown here in the red for that “holiday aesthetic” but I’d recommend getting a neutral shade that you can wear with anything (black, tan, brown…).
What is your favorite luxury item to gift?
