We’ve noticed that several retailers have been taking advantage of the holiday spirit of giving—or, for some, the urge to splurge—by offering some ridiculously pricey presents.
It’s great to be generous, but it’s important to keep holiday purchases in perspective, too. You may think your cooking enthusiast friend would love to have a $190 soda maker, but she’d probably appreciate equally, if not more, a thoughtful gift like $28 truffle salt that she can use to season the delicious dishes she makes. In fact, we know for a fact that the price of the gift won't matter to her.
We’ve picked out some of the crazy-expensive gifts we’ve seen advertised. Go ahead and giggle at the price tags, then feel confident about the personal, creative and savvy presents you’ve already picked out for your loved ones. (If you still need last-minute inspiration, check out our Guerrilla Guide to the Holidays for more affordable gift ideas for all your loved ones).
