Let's face it, we all want to be pampered and given luxurious things, or just buy them for ourselves! But, super high end luxury items, even the more affordable "gateway" beauty products, are often out of our price range. (And yes, even for me. And I'm a doctor.)
But, there are some great finds under $35 from those brands! Can't afford a $4,000 purse from Chanel? Try a lip gloss. Want to feel like Victoria Beckham with her huge Hermés bag collection? They make a perfumed soap that's in the affordable price range even for us mere mortals.
There are a lot of great finds, and while I'm only showing 10 of them in this image, I'm giving you a few great options below. They're all small enough to work as stocking stuffers. Who's fancy now? You, with the Chanel and Gucci stocking stuffers!
1. Perfumed Soap
Here's the Hermés Eau d’orange verte Perfumed soap, and there are similarly priced soaps from Chanel with their Number 5 and Coco Mademoiselle scents, and Dior's Miss Dior Silky Soap.
2. Shower Gel
Even if you aren't a bar soap person, you can splurge on a luxe item! Chloé 'L'Eau de Chloé' Shower Gel
3. Perfume Roller Ball
There are a ton of rollerballs from luxury brands. It's a great way to try out a new fragrance or take your favorite with you when you travel. A few options: Balenciaga Paris 'B.Balenciaga' Rollerball, Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum Rollerball
Yes, there are some amazing mascaras at lower price points. But that isn't what we're after here, is it? Try: Le Volume de Chanel, Diorshow Mascara
5. Lip Gloss
I'm a sucker for a good gloss, and there are some great high end glosses that I want to take everywhere with me!
Gucci Lip Vibrant Demi-Glaze Lip Lacquer (in 160 Iconic Gucci Red), Dior Addict Gloss, Burberry Lip Glow Natural Lip Gloss, Chanel Rouge Allure Colour & Shine Lip Gloss
6. Lip Stick
This is probably the most classic way of giving a luxe beauty item, though if you're giving it away try a classic color or a more forgiving translucent lippie like Chanel's Lipshine.
Try: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Lipshine (shown in Monte-Carlo), Yves Saint Laurent 'Rouge Volupté Shine' Lipstick
7. Eye Liner
Eye liner isn't usually something that most of us think of splurging a lot on (aren't all black liners the same?), but it really can be worth it! I've been lusting after this Chanel Or Blanc Stylo since I first saw it on Mostly Sunny's Blog. It has just the right amount of gold and shimmer to really be a great accent! Gucci's Impact Long Wear Eye Pencil comes in a few vivid accent colors that are hard to duplicate elsewhere.
8 & 9. Nail Polish
Some of the most iconic nail polish shades out there are from luxe brands (like Chanel's Vamp).
Try: Chanel le Vernis Nail Color (shown in Phenix), Diorific Nail Vernis (shown in Gold Equinoxe), Yves Saint Laurent 'La Laque Couture' Nail Lacquer, Tom Ford Nail Lacquer, Dior Long Wear Nail Lacquer
This is a great way to up your hostess gift game! Diptyque Limited-Edition Spice Candle
