22 Luxury Gifts Our Editors Are Ready To Splurge On
Gifts run on a continuum — there are the practical, unglamorous gifts like wool socks, oranges, and bars of soap that may not top a wish list, but are dutifully appreciated. Then there are the delightfully luxurious gifts, ones that may not necessarily serve a practical purpose, but they look and feel oh-so-good. These luxury gifts are on our editors' minds as the holidays quickly approach.
After all, if you don't put the possibility out there, you'll never know if these decadent ideas could become your reality. Below, find a range of fancy gifts — from what's best described as designer knick-knacks (under $100, no less!) to jewelry that may take some serious wishful thinking to manifest, but is still worth swooning over nonetheless. Luxury gifts don't always have to be flashy — though there's no knocking a classic logo bag — they can be as refined or as colorful as the recipient. And in fact, if you're purchasing an especially pricey gift, it's worth choosing something that aligns with the everyday style of whoever's opening the box.
So as you work on your dream holiday gift list — or perhaps build your vision board for 2020 — take a look at the fanciful picks suggested by our editors below.
"I've been slowly but surely turning into a jewelry girl, and Cartier's gold panther ring would be a dream addition to my collection. I appreciate that it's not loud or gaudy but has just enough appeal to serve as a statement piece, too." — Shelby Hyde, Shopping News Editor
"I am absolutely in love with the entire Carolina Herrera x Cabana tableware collection, but these hand-painted plates are probably my favorite picks of the bunch. An entire set for my dining table may cost a pretty penny, but the end game would be well worth it." — Angela Melero, Deputy Editor
"As a self-proclaimed minimalist, I pretty much always have something from Mansur Gavriel on my wishlist — but this purse caught my eye even more than the brand's products usually do. Yes, it's still classic Mansur Gavriel with its sleek lines and elegant shape, but it has a more vintage feel than the brand's typical pieces that I can't get enough of." — Anna Buckman, Shopping News Editor
