Splurge Worthy

Gifting loved ones things they'd never buy themselves is a particularly great holiday perk. These items--from a $200 set of Tom Ford lipstick to Byredo's luxurious leather travel case--won't be easy on your wallet, but they sure are beautiful.Tom Ford 4 Piece Lip Colour Gift Box ($192)
What tops a Tom Ford lipstick? A gold-embossed chocolate leather box with room for four! Even better? You get to customise the colours.

Byredo Leather Travel Case ($120) with Byredo's Eau de Parfum Refill Set ($110) in Gypsy Water
Byredo's white leather travel case puts some glamour back in travelling. Of course, the lucky receiver of such a gift needs travel-sized vials of the brand's classic scent, Gypsy Water.

O.P.I. The Man with the Golden Gun 24K Gold Top Coat ($30)
O.P.I. launched an entire range of polishes in honour of James Bond's 50th anniversary, but it's this top coat--a nail polish version of Goldfinger!--that will become as timeless as the man himself.

Cle de Peau Beaute La Crème ($775)
This miracle cream does everything: the brand's secret ingredient brightens the skin, chai hu extract increases collagen production, retinol fights wrinkles, and saxifraga extract inhibits melanin formation. That it's incredibly moisturizing is just a bonus.

Astier de Villatte Incense ($39) in Stockholm
Someone, somewhere, knows a fancy hippie. Gift them this beautiful blue and gold box of Astier de Villatte's latest incense scent, Stockholm, a mix of lavender, vetiver, and clove.

Gucci Gucci Premiere Eau de Parfum ($105)
Gucci's new fragrance, a sweet musk with base notes of wood and leather, made headlines for its celebrity face, Blake Lively. But the rich scent and gold bottle are worth talking about, too.

By Terry Baume de Rose Precieux ($70)
By Terry's limited-edition spin on their classic Baume de Rose is even more luxe than the original, thanks to an infusion of 24-karat pink gold that adds extra sparkle. The rose phytomolecules whipped in with the 26 anti-ageing ingredients actually nourish and repair dry lips, too.
