12 Luxury Beauty Gifts That Are Actually Worth the Splurge
When it comes to gift-giving, it’s absolutely the thought that counts. After all, that’s the true meaning of the season, as you’ll learn from any Hallmark holiday movie. But let’s be real: Sometimes you really want to go all out and treat someone special to a totally over-the-top present. (Or, maybe you just want to treat yourself. No judgment here, you deserve something for getting through this stressful time of year.) We’re not talking a run-of-the-mill gift or simple stocking stuffer, but something utterly luxurious and swoon-worthy. The kinds of jaw-dropping, covetable gifts that make a serious statement and cause gushing gratitude.
No matter whom you’re shopping for, you need look no further — we’ve rounded up the most extravagant gifts from brands like Chanel, La Mer, Dior, and more that are most definitely worth the splurge. Think: a handcrafted candle that essentially doubles as a piece of art, an elegant powder with an even more elegant compact, and a set of the most indulgent natural beauty products on the market, to name a few. Get those credit cards ready.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Gift Edition
In the nearly three years since Dyson launched its Supersonic dryer, it has consistently remained one of the most buzzed-about heat-styling tools and hugely appreciated holiday gifts. This year, the tool comes with all of the usual bells and whistles — like the smoothing nozzle, styling concentrator, and diffuser — but also features a sleek stand for holding everything and making your bathroom feel a little more like a chic salon.
Clé de Peau Beauté Blooming Cherry Refining Pressed Powder
A finishing powder with a three-digit price tag better be an incredible one — and it is. The rosy, translucent, pressed formula instantly brightens up skin whether it’s applied right after the rest of your makeup or as a mid-day touchup. However, the limited-edition compact is also a gorgeous keepsake, made to be refilled after the last sweep.
Dior Rouge Dior Couture Collection
A single Dior lipstick would be a great gift to receive, so this coffret of six is basically a luxury lip-color lover’s dream come true. The star of the show is the embellished Jewel Edition of Rouge Dior 999, and iconic red with the satin finish. The five refills represent a range of Dior’s most coveted colors: 434 Promenade (a satin hazelnut beige), 080 Red Smile (another satiny red), 520 Feel Good (a vibrant satin pink), 772 Classic Matte (a universally flattering rosewood), and a matte version of 999.
