9 Luxe Gift Ideas for When You Feel Like Splurging
There are nice gifts, and then there are nice gifts.
While most of the time we try to keep to a certain budget when shopping for holiday presents, every now and then we've saved enough to buy something that will really make a statement.
Whether it's a (not so little) something for a parent, friend, S.O. or even yourself, here are nine luxe gift ideas for when you feel like splurging.
1. Miu Miu Full-Rim Round Sunglasses: $279 (RRP: $547)
When the recommended retail price of a pair of sunnies is a whopping $547, we're pretty hesitant to forking over our wallets. However, Glasses Gallery offers authentic designer glasses for a fraction of the price. This specific pair from Miu Miu is such a classic that we don't ever see it falling out of style.

2. Swiss Army Alliance XS Watch: $495
Owning a watch is a right of passage. Sure, you can check the time on your smartphone, but why let technology run every aspect of your life? A watch like this one from Swiss Army is timeless, elegant and chic. The gold detailing, Swarovski crystals and overall luxe look are very appealing. This is definitely going on our Christmas wish lists.

3. Lark and Berry Rhombus Diamond Pavé Bracelet in 14K Gold: $422.50
Diamonds are a girl's best friend—and for good reason! Sure, they're pricey and at times maybe even over the top, but the way this bracelet is crafted is right up our alleys. Featuring a stunning rhombus shape, the simple and delicate chain encasing the diamonds is classy and sophisticated.

4. ReFa Expression High Tension Mask: $65
If you're a skincare snob (don't worry, we are, too), ReFa needs to be on your radar. By this point, you've likely tried too many sheet masks to count, but you've never tried anything like this. With three layers targeting hydration and suppleness, you'll notice visible results instantly (we've even tried it for ourselves!).
5. Louis Vuitton Key Pouch: $205
If you've ever been to Starbucks, gone to dinner or literally been anywhere in public, you'll get great use out of this adorable, timeless key pouch from Louis Vuitton. Throw in some cards, cash and attach your keys to the chain and you're all set. Adding this to our wish lists stat.

6. Citrine Natural Crystal Sterling Silver Handcrafted Twist Pendant: $126
Citrine is a powerful healing stone known for attracting wealth and abundance. It's excellent for influencing business, family and education. And because it's in necklace form, its positive energy will surround its recipient at all times.
7. RéVive Brightening Moisture Mask: $150
Not only does this luscious, soufflé-like solution from RéVive remove dull skin while brightening, it also makes for some incredibly fun Instagram content (if you care about that sort of thing). It also comes with a dual-applicator which helps invigorate the skin with a gentle massage.
8. Shani Darden Skincare Texture Reform: $95
Shani Darden Skincare was all the rage in 2019, and we couldn't let the year slip away without trying her critically acclaimed Texture Reform solution. While best known for her Retinol Reform Serum, we opted for something a bit gentler for sensitive skin. Formulated with a mild retinoid, this product helps boost cellular turnover for smoother skin, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps brighten and even skin tone. It also has lactic acid for immediate smoothing and brightening benefits.
