For the ones who have high-class taste.

For the ones who have high-class taste.

When you give a luxury gift, you’re not only showing off your exquisite taste, you’re also investing in the relationship. Because even if you’re shopping for yourself, an extravagant gift shows that you want the recipient to feel special and celebrated, like being part of an exclusive club. It’s like when you finally get that reservation notification for the hot new restaurant you waited weeks for, excited to surprise that special person with a hot ticket to a highly sought-after experience. 

Luxury isn’t just defined by price tags however. It also means high quality, impeccable craftsmanship, lavish comforts, and thoughtful details that hit at that particular person’s unique traits or interests. While yes, shopping for the luxe lovers aren’t always the most inexpensive gifts on your lift, seeing them light up from the thoughtfulness behind the investment is well worth the price tag. Here are the top picks from StockX that will impress anyone with high-class taste.

Gucci GG Marmont Matelasse Mini Bag

Designer handbags are the epitome of luxury gifting. It’s a category that has endless styles, brands, and colors to choose from that will make anyone with expensive taste feel extra special. Gucci has been top of mind this year after new Creative Director Sabato De Sarno stepped into Alessandro Michele’s former shoes, sending Gucci in a new Quiet Luxury direction that had critics split on opinions (any press is good press, right?). While I’m excited to see what Sabato De Sarno has for the future, I can’t get enough of Gucci’s archives for the holiday gifting season. The Gucci GG Marmont Matelasse Mini Bag is a chic choice for the luxury trendsetters on your list. The crescent shape and textured leather combines vintage elements with contemporary details for a design that stands out in the current fashion space. Not to mention, there’s no color hotter than red for the season. The red style is hard to find, so get it while you can on StockX. It’s currently below retail.

Saint Laurent Court Classic SL/06

I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve never been a huge luxury sneaker person. If I’m shopping for luxury, I usually find myself obsessing over handbags and heels. That is, until the Saint Laurent Court Classic sneaker was released. I saw this sneaker on the streets of New York during fashion week a few years back and loved the sleek aesthetic of the style. The Saint Laurent logo stitched on the side looks casual yet still high-class. It’s one of those minimalist styles that only gets better with time, as the sneaker starts becoming a timeless staple that feels like a retro find in the luxury brand’s catalog. This sneaker is the perfect choice for the person on your list who has timeless taste and a more subtle type of luxury. 

Miu Miu Wander Matelasse Nappa Leather Mini Hobo Bag

If you really want to impress the luxe lovers in your life, then gift them a sought-after handbag from the It Brand of the year. For the first time, Miu Miu just grabbed the top spot on Lyst’s hottest brand rankings. It makes sense. It’s a brand people can’t seem to get enough of, especially Gen Z. Miu Miu defined the entire chic school girl aesthetic, with its popular ballet flats, micro mini skirts, and logo cashmere cardigans. The Wander Matelasse Nappa Leather Mini Hobo Bag is another viral style from the buzzy brand. It’s reinterpreted each season, becoming an iconic staple in Miu Miu’s catalog. I love the texture of the leather, giving the bag a unique three-dimensional effect that feels just as innovative as it does sophisticated. It’s the epitome of modern femininity.  

Louis Vuitton Mini Bumbag

Louis Vuitton is another brand that’s been dominating fashion conversations this year, thanks to the new Pharrell Williams era. While the PFW23 collection featured a luxury take on Pharrell’s classic streetwear aesthetic, there were also a lot of classic accessory pieces that stole my attention. This Mini Bumbag is one of them. While bumbags are not anything new, I love Louis Vuitton’s take on the style with its boxier shape and luxury details. My favorite part is the adjustable gold chain strap that can be taken on and off based on how you want to wear the bag. So really if my girl math is correct, you’re actually getting two bags out of one high-end price tag: one bumbag and one convertible clutch. Genius. 

Chanel Crystal Pearl CC Earrings

What I love about Chanel’s costume jewelry is that each piece feels rare and one-of-a-kind. I feel like whenever I browse through a Chanel store, I find new and unique styles I’ve never seen before depending on where I am in the world. So gifting Chanel earrings feels like a special treat, as the style will feel like a vintage gem you discovered for that specific person in your life. I love the Chanel Crystal Pearl CC Earrings on StockX. They’re a perfect everyday earring shape that is lightweight and makes any casual outfit that much more luxurious and sophisticated. The pearl and crystal details just add to the vintage feel of the earrings, making this the perfect gift to really show you’re all in on the relationship.
