After the year and a half that we’ve had, your favorite people deserve the
best holiday presents
. You know, the type of luxury gifts that even the
woman who says she wants nothing
But, luxe doesn’t have to mean expensive. In fact, many of the
picks on this list are under $100. Instead of price, it’s about opulent-feeling ( cozy, plush, soft) fabrics, thoughtful gifts (read: personalized), elevated versions of wardrobe essentials that your giftee will never get for themselves, and, most importantly, pampering presents that will help them indulge in some self-care to start 2022 in a more relaxed state.
With that in mind, ahead, the best gifts for the luxe-loving (and deserving) people on your list.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
