Is there someone in your life that you always struggle to get presents for? You know that they like luxury style gifts but you never know what to get, or don’t want to spend a small fortune? Well here are some luxury gift ideas that shouldn’t break the bank but will impress nevertheless.
Spa Treatment – A full day at a luxurious spa can cost a fortune but you could just buy a treatment for someone, one where it allows them to go in and use the spa facilities like the pool and jacuzzi. You can also keep an eye out on Groupon and other discount websites to see when a good deal comes up.
Luxury Chocolate – Chocolate is one of those things that people don’t really like to spend a lot on for themselves but love to receive as a gift. Treat your friend or loved one to delicious chocolates like Charbonnel et Walker and they will love you for it!
Fizz – If you are buying for someone who likes the odd glass of fizz, you could buy in bulk to save money. Most supermarkets offer a discount if you buy six bottles at the same time for example, or they will have offers at certain times, so you can buy in bulk when the offers are on.
Food hamper – Similar to chocolate, a hamper is something that you would seldom buy for yourself, so it feels like a real treat. To save costs, make one up yourself, with all of their favourite nibbles such as cheeses, meats, olives and maybe add chocolates and a small bottle of prosecco and two glasses. It is also a nice idea to create it as a picnic hamper, with a picnic blanket included so they can enjoy it with someone special on a romantic day out.
Candles – Scented candles are a lovely gift idea and again are one of those items that people wouldn’t spend lots on for themselves but really appreciate receiving as a gift. Jo Malone candles are lovely but if you don’t quite want to spend that much, there are similar brands available.
Cashmere socks – Cashmere socks offer a real taste of luxury living and are perfect for the winter months. There are all kinds of colours and patterns available to wrap those feet in luxury with.
Wine tasting experience – Wine tasting experiences are becoming increasingly popular and they are both fun and educational. Help your friends discover a new wine or learn what food to partner specific wines with at dinner parties. There are lots of wine tasting experiences across the UK but the ones out in the countryside are particularly nice to go on from a scenic point of view.
Afternoon Tea – Another highly popular day out for those who love a taste of luxury is Afternoon Tea at a nice restaurant or bar. Most places offer a package that includes some sandwiches, scones, cakes and a pot of tea, with the choice to add alcoholic drinks if you wish. There are many venues that offer scenic views to enjoy whilst you drink your tea, such as Cloud 23 in Manchester or The Gherkin in London. You might just want to check the person you are buying for is not afraid of heights before you book a visit to a high up venue!
When you are buying for someone who likes the finer things in life, you won’t go far wrong with one of these ideas for luxury gifts that do not have to cost a fortune.
