A luxury gift idea is one you might not be able to rationalize buying for yourself. Here are some of my favorite affordable luxury gift ideas!
A Glittering Apple
An apple is healthy, but when it’s a David Charles apple evening bag with “stalk” closure ($124) it is a luxury gift idea!
These are sold on the Childrens Salon website, but trust me, they’re not just for pampered girls.
The petite bag (about the size of a small melon) won’t hold a large phone, but it will hold your lipstick, credit cards, Crystals sparkle all over this bag (we’re showing just two of the color choices).
Wear it as a clutch or with the detachable chain to wear cross body. Inside, there’s one compartment and matching polyester satin lining.
The glittering apple is going to wow adult women, but you’ll find lots of cute things for kids on the Children’s Salon site as well: https://www.childrensalon.com
Comfy & Chic Boots:
For those who love the Winter, but not wet or cold feet, give them the luxury gift of rugged boots from Sperry to weather the weather in luxury and style.
The Sperry Saltwater Duck Boots (approx. $120) look great in grey and they’re also available in white and rose. A matte rubber duck shell and premium wool shaft plus a Microfleece lining provide warmth.
This boot is stylish, sleek, and pairs well with just about anything casual. The barrel tied rawhide laces add that classic Sperry touch but a side zipper allows the laces to remain tied.

Vera Bradley Backpack:
Many people think of Vera Bradley as making pretty quilted purses in colorful designs, but there’s so much more to discover, from pencils and luggage tags and lanyards to this luxury leather backpack called Gallatin Storm Cloud (#24532M78) $ 188.00.
You will find a nod to that iconic Vera Bradley quilting on the front of the backpack, and the inside has a print fabric.
Note that this backpack is not just practical, it’s a luxury gift idea, full of pockets, and loaded with fashion for you or a lucky someone.
It’s also available in black and mocha. Visit the Vera Bradley Website
Haute Cocoa Skincare:
How about drenching them (or yourself) in the luxury of rich cocoa?
For spa lovers, a luxury gift idea is this Spa Tower from Waxing Kara called the Haute Cocoa Tower featuring five jars of luxurious skincare (2 oz. sizes/$50 & 4 oz/ sizes $70) .
Arriving in a clear cello tower the stack of jars feature natural, food grade ingredients made in small batches in the USA.
You can use the products any way you want, but we changed the order a bit as follows:
1. Light the Haute Cocoa candle in a tin to create a chocolate aromatherapy experience.
2. Start relaxing with Peace Soak: a combination of Epsom and dead sea salts and fresh-picked lavender buds to help ease sore muscles.
3. Treat your face to an Haute Cocoa Mask: made with real cocoa and botanicals for an antioxidant-rich skincare experience.
This is a DIY mask with dry ingredients you mix with suggestions for your skin type (see suggestions). Combine 2 parts mask powder to 1 part mixer, apply and leave on 10-15 minutes and rinse.
4. Scrub body with the Haute Cocoa Scrub: honey crystals, cocoa powder, and plant butters gently exfoliate and moisturize the skin.
5. Follow up with Haute Cocoa Butter: infused with real cocoa extracts and rich plant butters.
Gift this to your spa-obsessed friends and they will be ecstatic! Visit https://waxingkara.com/

Echo’s Luxe Reversible Tote:
When I saw this laser cut reversible tote bag ($99) from Echo I knew immediately that it was going to be in an advicesisters.com luxury gift guide.
It is affordable luxury. It comes in a variety of colors but I loved the gold/beige one in my photo.
A 12.25″ wide, 14″ high, 6″ deep with a separate 6″ by 9″, this polyurethane tote will please a lot more than just the vegans on your gift list.
