Lysenn Clear Glass Coffee Mug with Lid — $30
A handy rule of thumb: items made from glass often look more expensive than those that aren't. This pretty mug is the perfect example. It sports an intriguing vertical ribbed pattern and comes with its own wooden lid that doubles as a coaster. Grab it in the standard clear color, or opt for a festive amber or delicate pink shade. The mug is perfect for eggnog and hot chocolate season.
Audrey Hepburn Framed Photograph — $149
Classic movie buffs will be seeing stars over an art print from Sonic Editions, which start at just $149. Dedicated to the golden era of Hollywood, the retailer boasts hundreds of iconic shots to choose from, including those that depict greats like Audrey Hepburn, Al Pacino, Paul Newman, Jack Nicholson, and more.
Unzipped Glass Zipper Bag — $20.00
Encourage them to store candy or loose change in style. Reminiscent of the plastic baggies from school lunch days, this sculptural piece is perfect for the apartment dweller who loves weekend trips to the MoMA or adding a bit of whimsy to their decor.
Provence Hooded Terry Robe — $80
If luxury is what they want, luxury is what they'll get with this plush hooded terry robe from Kassatex. The light grey piping around the edge keeps it looking sophisticated (aka totally fine if you wear it out to the mailbox!) and it can even be monogrammed for an extra-special touch.
Voluspa Reed Diffuser — $26
Almost everyone knows the top candle brands, like Diptyque and Byredo, so you can't exactly pass one off from Bath & Body Works as a luxury find. But reed diffusers always look classy, no matter the brand. This one by Voluspa is available in four pleasing scents and comes in an embossed glass bottle inspired by Japanese art. With this diffuser, the entire room will be smelling great for up to six months.
