When your gift list feels as long as Santa’s, it’s time to get smart about picking presents. Here, 14 gifts with tons of value that are actually all under $100. It’ll be our little secret.
14 Gifts Under $100 That Look Like They’re Worth So Much More
1. Clinique Color Duet Gift Set
No, your eyes do not deceive you: This kit has all the products needed for two decadent makeup looks in one single holiday set. First, we have the Light Purple set, which packs a limited-edition eye and cheek palette, mascara, eyeliner, lip color and primer, cleansing balm, lip treatment and a bag. The Dark Purple set includes the same, but in all different shades to create an entirely new look. Both are packed with rich color and palettes perfect for on-the-go touchups. Did we mention this whole gift is worth $240? Yeah, you could say it’s a steal.
When function meets beauty like in the case of this stunning French press, you’d expect it to cost a pretty penny. Not here. Made of premium heat-proof borosilicate glass and dishwasher safe (yep!), this is the kind of gift that will impress even the choosiest of friends.
Is this fair isle gingerbread print not the cutest design you’ve ever seen? Soft and cozy knitted organic cotton means this set will be comfortable for a little one to wear all winter long, and we love Mori’s dedication to sustainably sourced fabrics and trusted factories.
4. Easter Ahn Elongated Curb Bracelet
Not only is this 14K solid gold bracelet stunning, it’s also made-to-order especially for you. The delicate chain links make it wearable for every day as well as a gorgeous addition to an existing bracelet stack.
5. Art Life Practice The Watercolor Kit
Art Life Practice
This treasure trove of materials will get the one you love started on their journey to artistic expression…without setting you back financially. A vinyl pouch, a watercolor set with 12 colors, a water brush, a Sharpie, a pack of paper and a how-to guide are all included. In addition to huge smiles upon opening, of course.
Charge not one, but two essentials on this wireless charging pad that has no annoying dead zones. It’s made from premium Belgian linen and charges through most cases up to 3mm in thickness. Plus, it’s so sleek and beautiful, they won’t mind keeping it out on display.
7. Anthropologie Open-Toe Slippers
One look at the thick pile on this faux fur pair of slippers, and your gift recipient will wonder what they did to be so spoiled. They don’t need to know it cost you less than a mani-pedi.
8. Material The Angled Board
An angled edge to collect choppings, a gorgeous walnut finish on sustainably harvested wood, a smooth side and a grooved side…what doesn’t this luxe cutting board have? We know: a home for the holidays. But you can fix that right here and now.
No hate to flimsy drugstore readers, but these solid, carefully crafted specs are a world away. Lens magnification ranges from zero (hey, sometimes you’re just going for a look) to 3.5, so choose their strength and wow someone in your life who could use a thoughtful upgrade.
10. Brooklinen Super Plush Hand Towels
They named these hand towels “super plush” for good reason. By far the richest textured towels you’ve ever dried your hands on, this OEKO-TEX certified, 100 percent Turkish cotton pair is also a little larger than average—in the most expensive looking way.
One hundred percent Mulberry silk means you can indulgently lounge all night and day while maintaining a comfortable body temperature. And when you’re done, you can toss this piece into the wash with all the rest of your laundry. Go on, throw in the matching shorts too—you’ll still come in under $100.
Save space, time and money with this little device that does it all. Rid your garments of wrinkles both sides at a time with the smart clamp functionality, and choose from six different heat settings to do so at the perfect temp. It acts as an iron, steam iron and steamer, not to mention it deodorizes and sanitizes with the brand’s signature Steam Solution.
13. Keepsake Medium Custom Frame
Custom framing doesn’t have to be a whole thing. Keepsake makes the process simple: Download the app (or do it online, but how nice is it to just upload something from your camera roll?), preview your photo in tons of different frames, choose and check out. Their frames are all handmade in the USA and delivery time is just a matter of days.
And for the one who has everything, a living keepsake that will stand the test of time. This magnolia tree is approximately 18-24-inches tall and comes wrapped in burlap and tied with a ribbon. It looks like a million bucks, but it’ll only cost you $56.
