I have rounded up 16 of my favorite, luxe gift ideas … all under $500… to help ease the stress of holiday shopping. In this gorgeous guide, you’ll see a little of everything from beauty, to style, and home decor…
BTW, we have more gift guides with gift ideas for ALL budgets coming soon.
#1 | Alexis Hat
This beautiful beanie style hat features a heather-grey leopard spot design and is guaranteed to keep you warm all winter long. I sometimes even layer a beanie under a faux fur hat for extra warmth.
Stay warm and cozy in this cable-knit cashmere snood from Portolano. The grey neutral tone is so versatile and will look great with almost any color or style coat. It’s a slouchy design making it casual enough to throw on over a sweater but refined enough for a special night out. I like the infinity design which makes styling a cinch.
These Golden Goose sneakers are definitely a luxe purchase but I love them! I have a few pairs now and think they’re worth the investment! I share more about the brand, sizing, and more in this post.
#4 | Ippolita Earrings
These stunning drop-style earrings from Ippolita’s Lollipop collection features graduated hematite stones surrounded in sterling silver. These are the perfect example of “fine jewelry” that is wearable and versatile.
#5 | SAM Freestyle Jacket
SAM puffer coats are my absolute favorite. I feature these jackets year after year because they have a special way of combining fashion and function. They are also super warm and stylish.
#7 | YSL Wallet
This Saint Laurent monogram quilted leather wallet is stunning. The textured leather makes it extremely durable. This mini wallet has enough room for cards, cash, and coins, but is still small enough to fit into your evening bag.
#8 | Ember Mug
This mug is for that person who has everything. You all know that I take my morning coffee routine seriously. This mug is SO smart…you can set your ideal drinking temperature and the mug does the rest. I never have to worry about my coffee getting cold if I’m called away to help one of the kids get ready for school. With three beautiful metallic finishes, there is one for everyone on your list.
#9 | NūFace
The Nūface is like a gym for your face. With as little as 5 minutes a day, this beauty tool can help tone and firm the neck and face. This 2 piece gift set comes with the Nūface device and the hydrating gel primer. The glitter base is such an awesome touch for holiday!
#10 | SimpleHuman Mirror
The trio max sensor mirror by SimpleHuman is a beauty routine game changer! This is one of their newest models and features 3 mirrors in one. You can easily switch between 1x, 5x, and even 10x magnification…those stubborn brow hairs won’t stand a chance. The adjustable light makes putting on your makeup a breeze.
#11 | St Barths Tote
The St Baths Tote by Naghedi is made of woven neoprene making it the perfect accessory for a day out on the town or for a relaxing day at the beach. It includes a matching zippered pouch perfect for holding smaller necessities.
#12 | Cloud Clutch
This mini Cloud clutch by Mansur Gavriel is made of beautiful lambskin leather. You can carry it like a clutch or use the shoulder strap for a hands-free look. You may remember that I featured the larger version of this bag in my luxury designer dupes video.
#13 | Cable Bracelet
This stunning sterling silver David Yurman cable classics bracelet with 18k yellow gold accents is sure to be a holiday gift hit. It will look beautiful alone or as part of a bracelet stack. I love how Yurman mixes metals!
#14 | Apple Watch Band
This apple watch band by Michele turns your sporty Apple watch into a more classically styled piece of jewelry. We have all become so dependent on the features that smartwatches offer, but oftentimes we want to look like we are wearing a “real” watch…This band does just that.
#15 | Sparkling Water Maker
My Aarke sparkling water maker is one of the most used small appliances in our kitchen (right behind my coffee maker). Its sleek design makes a beautiful statement on our kitchen counter. Just add a CO2 cartridge and water for a crisp carbonated beverage.
#16 | Throw Blanket
How could any gift guide be complete without featuring this Barefoot Dreams In the Wild throw blanket? It’s so cozy, but also stylish. This large blanket features a grey on grey tonal animal print design that anyone on your list will just love. It’s SO good…you may even want to grab one for yourself!
