Splurge Worthy Gifts for Her

November 23, 2019

Some luxury gifts are worth the hype, so Haley and I went through all of our favorite pieces, and created a luxury gift guide for you. If you’re looking for something extra special to give this year, we’ve found the best items and even some amazing deals on them. 

I can't tell you how many people won't stop raving about their Dyson Dryer. Word on the street is that it cuts down drying time significantly, so you can get out the door faster. This is perfect for anyone on your list who feels like doing their hair is a chore (ie most people.) Haley loves her dryer, and even invested in the Dyson Air Wrap. The Air Wrap is actually on my list at the moment, and I would absolutely love to give it a go. Santa, I've been good!

Earlier this year during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, everyone was losing their mind over the Barefoot Dreams Blanket. I'll be the hundredth person to tell you, this blanket is worth every penny and it’s so incredibly cozy. The leopard print is the most popular, but if you’re looking to snag one on sale, we’ve found a steal for you. Grab this one at Nordstrom Rack for less than $50. These will sell out, as they do every single year around Cyber Week!

Gucci on my shoes, Gucci on my shirt. Gucci on my eyes, Gucci on my face... no? These Gucci sunglasses were a gift a friend gave Haley over a year ago, and they are still her everyday go-to sunnies. They look great on any face shape and hold their quality even after hundreds of days of use. If you're going to splurge on sunnies, might as well do it on a pair that will definitely stand the test of time. Another great sunglass option is a trusty pair of Ray Bans. You really can't go wrong with the classic aviators.

What's a college student without a pair of UGGs? These slippers  are amongst some of the best. We've tested affordable slippers, as well as those that are The new leopard style this year is so gorgeous, and they’re great for anyone who likes to keep their toes warm and stay cozy! 

While the newest iPhone 11 is a big splurge item, it’s definitely an upgrade for your kids, significant other, or family member. The camera on this phone is much better than previous phones and even has a lot more flexibility and control than the iPhone 10 XS. Did I mention the battery life is incredible too? I don't have to charge my phone by noon every day anymore.

I can't explain to you the excitement I had when our new air fryer made its way to our front door. It uses less oil and allows you to get food crispier. Not to mention it replaces your oven, a broiler and your toaster (since it can toast, bake, broil, etc) It is currently on sale at William’s Sonoma! 

Every girl can use a Gucci Belt so if you're looking to really spoil a fashionista, this is the one. It adds a whole lot of jazz to any outfit, and it’s a total staple piece. We love pairing ours on a sweater dress, or even with a simple top and jeans. There's something so classy about the traditional black with the gold GG logo.

The classic Stuart Weitzman boots are hyped, but again an item that deserves all of it. Not only are they super comfortable (I walked miles in them during my travels in Europe this fall) and they are also really warm (they kept my legs nice and toasty during the cold in Bosnia a few months ago.) They're super pricey, but these are a pair you will have forever. You've also got 2 pairs on major markdown right now. Peep these and these.

This year in particular, Golden Goose got a lot of press. To be honest I hadn't heard of the brand before Steve Madden created a dupe, and now I really love the fact that they're already warn in and have a lot of personality to. them. They've got some awesome styles, but this pair is so fun for the fall and winter time.

I'm sure you've heard more and more people telling you that sleeping with a silk pillowcase helps ensure you're not causing fine lines and premature aging on your skin, while you sleep. No? In case you don't know, slip has a super soft pillowcase which is perfect for everyone. Not to mention the matching eye mask. I always need to start using the eye masks in the spring and summer time because that sun comes out at the crack of dawn.

AirPods to me are an easy gift for so many people. I got mine a few months before the Pros came out (don't worry, I'm angry about it too) but they are still the best headphones ever. I'm not entirely sure why I waited for long, but they are game changers.

How much do you love your family? Your significant other? Your child? Well I'm going to give you the option since this is major splurge, especially these days. Who doesn't want a brand new MacBook? We'll be looking for a new laptop during the Cyber deals, so make sure to follow along on stories to see what kind of deals we find in the next few days.

There's no bag more popular than the Gucci Marmont 2.0 Matelassé Leather Shoulder Bag. It's the perfect everyday crossbody. It's a major splurge for someone you love, but I've seen parents spend way more on their kids so I'm just going to throw this one in. If it were me, I'd want that porcelain rose, but you simply can't go. wrong with the black.

I can't tell you how many people won't stop raving about their Dyson Dryer. Word on the street is that it cuts down drying time significantly, so you can get out the door faster. This is perfect for anyone on your list who feels like doing their hair is a chore (ie most people.) Haley loves her dryer, and even invested in the Dyson Air Wrap. The Air Wrap is actually on my list at the moment, and I would absolutely love to give it a go. Santa, I've been good!

I remember the day I told Aaron I wanted a David Yurman bracelet. Even texted him the link to Nordstrom, and he completely forgot I ever sent him that. Typical man, right? The bracelets are classics and have a lot of options, but this one is classic and simple which I've had my eye on too. Another brand that's caught my eye this year is Lagos. They were kind enough to gift me this sensational bracelet earlier this year. A more cost effective option is this sterling silver version. Both gorgeous, and a luxe quality that is hard to beat.

When it comes to splurge and luxury, you will always see La Mer in the mix. Their skincare is incredible, and really hydrates the skin. Their formulations are luxe, as well as the packaging. For the. beauty lover on your list, I'd recommend picking a product or two or even doing a kit like this one.

Jo Malone perfume is honestly one of the best gifts, and the packaging makes the scent even more valuable. Every year, they have a holiday set which I lust over.

Every year, NARS has a gorgeous new holiday collection. The pricing isn't atrocious in comparison to some of these splurge items I mentioned, but they're definitely more luxe than your typical brands. This eyeshadow palette should be in everyone's stocking this year, especially a beauty lover's. Not to mention this set of 3 lip pigments. Adding a good quality lipstick into her stocking is always a good idea, because a girl can never have too many lipsticks.

This is a flat lay, including slippers, Dyson dryer, Gucci belt, Gucci sunglasses and more splurge worthy items.
