HOLIDAY GIFTS OVER $75
I decided to do one big gift guide for splurgey gifts that range in price starting at $75. Everyone has different budgets, but I’d consider anything over that amount a splurge for a holiday gift. Many of these gift ideas in today’s post I’ve given as gifts over the years (or received). These would also be great for a group gift (we do this in my family a lot for parents, in laws, etc) or maybe you just want to treat yourself!
You can find my other gift guides here: Under $50. Stay tuned for a few more gift guides this week and next.
Splurge Gifts For Her
Dagne Dover Dakota Backpack
I LOVE my Dagne Dover backpack. It is gorgeous, so functional and very chic. The large size has so many pockets, a laptop sleeve, a recycled fabric lining and a shoe and dust bag. If you have someone that travels often or commutes this would be such a good gift.
Cashmere Travel Wrap
Warm, cozy, luxurious, I could go on about the White & Warren cashmere travel wrap. They make the best year round accessory. The hardest part is what color to pick. If you’re debating on a neutral, I always suggest going with what is more prominent in your wardrobe, but you really can’t go wrong!
Birkenstock Shearling Clog
I’ve had these on my radar for a long time and I’ve officially put them on my birthday/Christmas wishlist. These are so cute as a clog but I’d love to wear them as slippers around the house too. Styled with jeans and a cozy sweater, so cute!
Tata’s Daily Essentials Kit
I love Tata Harper skincare and this set is the perfect introduction to the brand or travel kit. This set includes a travel-friendly cleanser, resurfacing mask, resurfacing serum and moisturizer for all skin types. The perfect gift for the beauty lover on your list.
Ugg Adirondack Boots
Waterproof leather, lace-up design, wool lined, and so comfortable. These are my favorite winter boots for any conditions. These keep your feet super warm and dry. I have them in the color mustard seed but brown is cute too.
I am a HUGE fan of Lake Pajamas. They make such a nice gift. I love giving the robe to new moms and the holiday colors are so fun for winter. They also make sizes for babies, toddlers and kids now if you’re into matching. They are so soft and cozy and whoever you gift them to will want to live in them!
Sézane Lucas Jumper
You can’t really go wrong with Sézane, and the Lucas Jumper is one of my favorites. It’s a cotton wool blend that’s super warm and cozy. I have the white but I love the stripe and the green too.
Splurge Gifts For Home
Forest & Field Collective Gift Boxes
My friend makes these beautifully curated artisan gift boxes. There’s options like the Vermont Box or Women Made and I love that they support local businesses with high-quality products. They take care of compiling and shipping your gift box for you. A great way to support many small and local businesses. Use code JESSKIRBY23 for 25% off.
Harborview Herringbone Chappywrap
We have several chappywrap blankets and yes they really are worth the hype. They wash well, never pill, they’re thick, warm and great quality. I love the herringbone style (we have the original size), and the midi size for kids. We also have the oyster cove which is another nice neutral (nice to cover furniture when you have pets too).
Coravin Wine Preservation System
The Coravin is always a huge hit with wine lovers. It’s a wine preservation system that allows you to pour from the bottle without taking off the cork. The wine stays fresh longer so you don’t have to worry about finishing a whole bottle if you only want to have a glass. It’s very easy to use and for anyone that is a wine collector or just loves wine this is a great gift. Currently 40% off at Nordstrom!
We love our Solo Stove. These are amazing fire pits built to burn efficiently and without being super smoky. I LOVE sitting outside by the fire. This is a great solution and it’s not super heavy. We have the Bonfire 2.0 which is the perfect size. There are great sales right now too!
Marshall Bluetooth Speaker
I gave this to Craig a few years ago as a gift and it was very well received. It has incredibly impressive sound quality and it can be hooked up via Bluetooth to your phone, record player, TV, etc. It looks cool too.
Ooni Pizza Oven
We bought one of these last year after Craig would not stop talking about how much he wanted one. I have to say, it was worth it! There’s a bit of a learning curve using it, but once you get the hang of it the pizza you can make at home is SO good. They make gas powered and wood pellet ovens. We have the gas powered one and there’s a couple at the local farmer’s market that has the wood one and their pizzas are amazing.
Material Kitchen Knife Trio
As seen in Oprah’s Favorite Things, I can personally vouch for this knife trio (and so does our resident chef, Craig). It is incredible (the Stand comes highly recommended). They are well balanced, super sharp, and made cryogenically-tempered Japanese stainless steel and high carbon. They are built to last. These three are all you need. Gift to someone in your life who loves to cook. Use code JESSK20 for 20% off your order.
Splurge Gifts For Kids
Wooden Mini Play Kitchen
We got this for Marin several years ago and it was definitely worth it. It was easy to assemble and incredibly well built. And it also shipped fairly fast. It has phenomenal reviews and I love that it’s from a maker on Etsy. It definitely gets a lot of use in our house and I imagine it will for years to come.
Bogs Neo Classic Boots
Pretty much everyone I asked, including my toddler’s pre-k teacher, said the Bogs Neo-Classic are the way to go for winter. They keep little feet warm and dry (make sure to get the insulated ones). I also recommend sizing up so they can last longer (and can be worn with thicker socks).
Kuling makes really amazing outerwear for kids. Last year Marin had the snowsuit which I sold because she outgrew it and this year I got her a jacket and bibs. It’s both water and dirt repellent, fleece lined, and made with recycled materials. She put both through the ringer and I can attest that it can withstand heavy, messy use and lots of washing. It keeps her so warm and comfortable for outdoor play and they go outside every day all winter long so it’s a must!
Banwood Folding Scooter
If you have a little one that loves to scoot (or wants to learn) this vintage-inspired 3-wheel scooter complete is so fun! Complete with a removable basket for stashing treasures. They also have a balance bike.
Magna-tiles are a very popular toy in our house. They encourage lots of independent play, and I really love that they are so easy to clean up! Fantastic for ages 3+.
Splurge Gifts For Him
Smith Wildcat Chromapop Sunglasses
If you’ve got someone on your list that’s an avid mountain biker, cyclist, runner or just all around outdoorsy, I can’t say enough good things about the Smith Wildcat! I got these for Craig and he LOVES them. They also come with an interchangeable clear lens.
Vuori Fleece Polartec Water Repellent Jacket
Ordered this one for Craig and I think he is going to love it. Water-repellent Polartec fleece thats breathable and warm. He really likes a nice shirt-jacket and this one is stylish and practical.
I’ve given this as a gift many times and it is always very well received. For anyone that deals with a lot of muscle soreness or stiffness this thing is a total game changer. It’s sort of a torture device in that it kind of hurts using it but has incredible payoff afterwards.
Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones
These Bose headphones are so good. For travel and everyday office work the sound quality cannot be beat and the noise-canceling feature is incredible. I seriously can not travel without these. They are also so comfortable. A great gift for anyone on your list.
Quilted Ankle Boot Slippers
A warm fleece lining makes these ankle boot backyard slippers extra-warm and perfect for running outside to get fire wood. I got these for Craig and he absolutely loves them. Great for going outside when there’s snow on the ground to get in the hot tub! FYI for half sizes go a half size up.
