How to Buy Luxury Gifts on a Budget

If you can't afford luxury gifts on your budget, here are some suggestions to help you cut corners without sacrificing quality.


Women love to be waited on, especially harried mothers of young children. Give gift certificates for manicures and pedicures.

Seize on coupon deals online, or in your newspaper for spa days, or just a massage or sauna.

Buy gourmet food items on sale, in the gourmet section of your supermarket.

Purchase items like a popcorn popper or a smoothie blender, when you see it on sale, say at Walgreens.

Buy individual packets or small jars, tubes, bars of scented soaps, bath oil, body wash, and body lotions.

During the white-sale month of January, buy discounted hand towels, bath towels, and designer sheet sets.

Find a beauty package of cosmetics, maybe at Macy's, which includes a premium item like an Irish edged-lace linen handkerchief.

Buy beautiful fine-leather day, week, or monthly planners, or address books. Items like these are sometimes discounted at stationery stores to unload inventory.

Buy antique jewelry from a street artisan. You can bid them down.

Find satin-padded clothes hangers, a luxurious but inexpensive item.

At specialty gift stores, find discounted items such as cedar jewelry boxes or candles.

End-of-season sales at large retailers offer many small luxury items like egg cups, dinner bells, and wind chimes.

Browse art stores during their seasonal sales and find items such as a calligraphy pen and ink, origami kit or specialty stationery.
