2010 gift guides: splurge worthy

by Grace Bonney


I always enjoy creating budget-themed gift guides, but there’s something extra fun about throwing caution to the wind and embracing the idea of luxurious gifts. Whether it’s a silk robe, handmade leather bag, cushy cashmere throw or a gold plate, sometimes a little splurge can be fun if you have someone special that you really want to treat this year. I’ve rounded up my favorite splurge-worthy finds below, and I hope you’ll find something you might consider worth the investment. The prices primarily range from $200 to $500, but there are a few ultra-splurges thrown in just for fun. Because maybe there’s someone out there lucky enough to get a $1,000+ vintage Suzani throw. If that’s you, please let us know so we can check out that beauty in your home. Stay tuned for more gift guides tomorrow and every day for the next week and a half. xo, grace
