This post is the final part of the Christmas gift guide series. After sharing my budget Christmas ideas and my lifestyle Christmas ideas with you last week, I'm sharing the semi-luxury gift guide with you today. Luxury gifts are those kinds of gifts that you would like to gift everyone you care about. However I'm really not that rich that I can get my mum a Céline bag and my dad a brand new stereo set, so that's why I would say that all of these gift ideas are kind of luxurious, but still semi-affordable, considering some gifts that people give each other are around €1000.

Leather goods

The first semi-luxurious things that you could gift your loved ones are leather goods. Meaning, bags, wallets, coin purses and other things like that. Bags and wallets are something that is, in my opinion, very durable. Years can fly by with people still using the same wallet or the same bag. I find that The Outnet have some really good deals on bags and wallets. Zalando and ASOS also tend to sell some semi-luxurious brands. But if you're looking for affordable, quality goods you could definitely look at brands like Rebecca Minkoff, Coach, Lancaster and DKNY. They have some really pretty and (kind of) affordable bags and other small leather goods that make the perfect Christmas gift. Also definitely do not forget to look at the leather goods section in your local warehouses, because they might have these brands but also similar brands!


Accessoires are always such a lovely gift. If you're really quite into accessoires or your friends and/or family are into accessoires, this would be such a good gift. Some gift ideas that I think will be fun to gift to your loved ones are hats, sunglasses and scarves. This particular hat is from Old Habits Die Hard, which do perfect hats that you can make bigger or smaller yourself and add cute little straps to the hat.

Another cute accessoires gift you could give your loved ones is a pair of sunglasses. I absolutely love sunglasses as you all probably know. Sunglasses come in all different sorts of price ranges, but if you're really into designer stuff, a pair of sunglasses could definitely be that piece of luxury to gift your friends. My favourites are from Le Specs, Céline and Fendi!


Watches are a really considerate gift for your loved ones during Christmas. I definitely feel like when you gift a watch for Christmas, it's that special kind of gift that someone could bring along with them for the rest of their lives! Lately so many amazing watch brands have popped out and I am constantly scrolling through Instagram seeing lots of new and pretty watches pop up. My favourite watches are from Cluse, Kapten & Son, The Fifth watches and Daniel Wellington. Daniel Wellington also have a few discount codes that are linked to social media influencers. Last week for example, I noticed that Kendall Jenner was offering a 15% discount code for a Daniel Wellington watch here if you're interested in buying a watch.


Perfume are such personal, and thoughtful gifts. If you definitely know what the person your buying for likes, this would be the perfect gift. I personally always write one of my favourite perfumes down on my Christmas wishlist and I just really like receiving a perfume. Perfume isn't something someone would always buy themselves, so that's why I think a perfume is a really good, lovely and thoughtful Chrismas gift. Some of my favourite scents are Versace Versense, Stella by Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, Elie Saab Le Parfum, Burberry Body and Chloe.

Makeup is definitely something I would like to receive during the Christmas season. I am a huge makeup hoarder and always like to get my hands on some more. However, to make your Christmas gifts that tiny bit more special, you could gift the ones you love some makeup bits and bops from luxurious brands. My favourite luxurious makeup brands are NARS, Marc Jacobs, Laura Mercier, Bobbi Brown and Chanel! I absolutely love giving my mother an eye palette for example as she loves her natural, earthy eyeshadows. But if your loved ones are into lipstick, get them that luxurious lipstick, or nail polish!

I really hoped you liked these Christmas gift guides and found them somewhat helpful! Happy Christmas gift buying!
