Luxury gifts such as a designer bag or a quality timepiece are some of the most precious gifts you can give during the holidays. And when it comes to Phil or our families, I really don’t mind going the extra mile and splurging a little more. While buying luxury pieces can seem overwhelming, I want to reassure you that it isn’t necessary to overspend to find a worthy item. Since I truly believe in quality over quantity, I’m open to buying pre-owned designer goods that make wonderful gifts – especially if I can land an amazing deal. This usually allows me to grab something extra for myself and others too. One of my favorite places to score luxury gifts for less is eBay. Below, I’m sharing four gifts you can’t go wrong with this season.
I love browsing eBay for pre-owned designer bags, especially through their Authenticate program. This gives me the peace of mind that an item I’m searching for is genuine. The program works by having third-party authenticators inspect a luxury item before it gets listed. Once it’s certified, the item can be found with a whole selection of authenticated designer bags that you can shop here. Many of the brands I love and own can be found on eBay for much less than the original MSRP. My favorites include bags from Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Gucci. These brands will never go out of style and can be appreciated for years down the road.
A high-end watch is one of the most opulent gifts one can give – and eBay is the perfect place to find an authentic luxury timepiece. With a huge listing of luxe pre-owned watches from brands like Rolex and Cartier, you’ll be able to find that special piece in time for Christmas. eBay’s Authenticate program also applies to these higher-end watches, making shopping easier and more reliable. I actually bought Phil’s Rolex pre-owned years ago and have never regretted it. It’s in great condition and timeless. We have both said that if either of us gets another Rolex or luxury watch, we’ll buy it pre-owned because they’re often in amazing condition and priced much lower than retail.
If you’re wanting to give the gift of luxury without spending a ton of money, then a designer wallet is a great option to consider. They’re usually much less expensive than a handbag but still feel luxe and just as special. I love that wallets can double up as a clutch for a holiday night out. eBay is also a great place to search for men’s designer wallets. I bought Phil a Louis Vuitton one a few years ago and it remains one of his favorite Christmas gifts to date.
There’s no better way to travel in style than with a chic duffle bag or suitcase. A Louis Vuitton Keepall is always on my wish list. It’s a great unisex gift that anyone would love. Purchasing a pre-owned version is smart since luggage is bound to get worn and you won’t feel as bad if it gets a bit of wear.
Another timeless holiday gift for her is jewelry. Whether it’s to add to your own wish list or if you want to get something extra special for your mom, grandma, best friend or another special lady in your life – designer fashion jewelry is always a hit. eBay carries some of the most popular jewelry brands like David Yurman, Tiffany & Co, Kendra Scott and Swarovski – to name a few! Just this week, eBay started authenticating fine jewelry too.
