ETOnline, Chanel, Sephora, Graza, Aesop, Venus et Fleur
As much as we wish we could spend hundreds and even thousands on gifts for each of our loved ones, luxurious gifts aren’t always feasible. But just because you can’t afford to buy them a Chanel purse or Montblanc pen doesn’t mean a nice gift is out of the question. Recently on TikTok, we’ve noticed plenty of gift guides composed of affordable luxuries: small presents from designer brands, upgraded versions of everyday products and simple items made of high-quality materials.
This holiday season, treat the material girl (or boy) in your life to a decadent gift that won’t put you in debt — inspired by our TikTok feeds. One of the most popular beauty products of the year, Dior’s Lip Glow Oil, is certainly pricier than your average chapstick at $38. But given its notoriety and gorgeous packaging, it’s a gift that any beauty lover would appreciate.
From $50 cashmere sweaters (yes, really!) and silk eye masks to pure Spanish saffron and Instagram-approved olive oil, we’ve rounded up the best affordable luxuries for everyone on your list. Below, shop our favorite picks from brands such as Chanel, Dior, Jo Malone and more.
