Luxurious Not a word we like to use lightly, and from a price point of view, buying luxury items isn’t something to take lightly either. Keeping that in mind, luxury isn’t just about buying more expensive items (although they can be on the higher end), it’s about craftsmanship and objects that will last the test of time. . Put it this way: Think of it as an investment. Jessica Willis, Cut’s style director, picked some of her favorite pieces to buy (and give as gifts) for this chic gift guide. Here are some of her worthwhile favorites.
This is the closest you can get to a Birkin without spending a few (hundred) thousand dollars. The high-gloss lacquer comes in several of the brand’s enamel-inspired colors, so they can mix and match with the rest of their collection. And yes, it comes in an orange box.
There is nothing more luxurious than owning your own signature scent, even better if it’s a scent that no one else has. The seasonal scents from Ffern are small batches, organic and sustainable. Once you sign up, you join their ledger, a small group of customers who receive a bottle of made-to-order perfume every season. Rest assured, (almost) no one else will have these.
Curve couldn’t be a more fitting name for a belt-inspired bag made of calfskin with a cowhide lining. They can wear this over the shoulder or crossbody, the hardest decision they have to make is choosing a color.
Yes, this KiKi De Montparnasse bra is meant to be seen. Willis recommends wearing it under a felt coat, just showing off a little bit of sexiness. Founded in 2005, the brand is known for its sleek and well-designed bras. And this demi bra does not disappoint.
This space age LED mask is really worth the Instagram selfies. With a combination of blue and red light therapy, the hands-free device can be used several times a week for acne, anti-aging, skin tightening, etc. Although it is suitable for anyone, we imagine you’ll get the biggest response from a dedicated skincare fanatic; We promise this was on their list.
Like many timeless pieces designed by the late great Elsa Peretti, this beautiful Tiffany carafe is almost too pretty to use. Let this silver and vermeil piece adorn whatever part of their home they choose.
While anyone who knows how to make their own kitchen would be happier with a Le Creuset Dutch oven, we imagine they would be delighted to gift this cast iron set. The eight-piece collection really makes a great gift – it’s easy to clean and ready to use (read: seasoned, they’ll know what that means).
From the only spa state you can buy this most beloved P50 lotion is this deep cleansing and regenerating booster. The fine foaming powder helps to minimize pores, fine lines and reduce excess sebum. Some of the key ingredients here are aloe vera, kaolin to create a matte finish, and caffeine to strengthen the skin. It’s basically like a gentle face in a bottle. We couldn’t think of a more luxurious way to get radiant skin.
Anyone who loves unusual arrangements will appreciate this handcrafted vase from Brooklyn sculptor Simone Bodmer-Turner. Sure, it makes for great dialogue, but the beauty of the vase is its versatility. Fill it with your favorite flowers or plants.

Easy program settings can be chosen to make anything from smoothies to soups – they won’t leave a single item in their fridge or pantry. Did we mention it also cleans itself? Yes, there is a button for that.
La Bouche Rouge is an eco-friendly French beauty brand. The refillable holsters in the kit come in two popular reds, Regal Red, a warm orange tone, and Pop Art, a cool undertone. Both shades are made with hyaluronic acid, jojoba, squalane, and shea butter to create a matte finish without drying out your lips. We recommend spending an extra $10 to customize tubes with their initials for that luxurious vapor.
The only thing that can compare with a signature perfume is the signature scent of the homeland. Let them skip the pine and pumpkin spice this season and enjoy this Swiss Alpine-inspired incense box. With notes of milk, honey and hints of citrus, they will light them up in every nook and cranny of the house.
