Holiday gifting is tricky, and the surplus of products available right now – somewhat paradoxically – doesn’t make the process of buying good presents any easier.
To be methodical about it, it’s best to work out your budget and then narrow it down from there to find the perfect gift. To make things easier, we’ve rounded up the best items for under $200 that you would want to find on the other side of the wrapping paper.
Scroll down for the best luxury gifts for under $200 below.
Nixon – Ripper Watch
This is a watch that is as affordable as it is functional. With 100 meters water resistance, and a silicone band, this is durability, packaged in recycled ocean plastic. We love a good sustainability moment.
Parks Project California Tee
If you aren’t in the mood to gift a whole trip, then give a small token of sunnier climes, by way of this Parks Project Cali tee. You’ll also be doing your bit for the natural reserves they protect in the US. An all-rounder, this one.
Online Ceramics Plant a Rainbow Hat Ivy
Online Ceramics brings a charming lollapalooza vibe to gifting proceedings. In continuation of the California dreaming theme, this hat is giving groovy, with a little bit of irony. As long as the hippie vibe is a pared down, it can be executed to perfection.
The North Face Base Camp Fuse Box Laminate Backpack
Anything by The North Face carries some heavy weather-ready clout. So for the commuter who might be in need of extra protection for their office supplies, laptop and phone, this could be just the thing. We’ll let you decide who to gift this to – below $200 but not below expectations.

As Dua Lipa croons, ‘catch me or I go Houdini’ – some things don’t come around twice. This piece here is unique and you might not get the chance unless you’re timing it right.
Portuguese Flannel Arquive 82 Checked Organic Cotton-Flannel Shirt
It’s easy to overlook the little things like a simple, soft flannel, but trust me these items will take you far especially during your partner’s downtime.
Autotelic Objects Large Porcelain Cup
Inject some art into your morning cuppa. This piece by Autotelic Objects elevates everyday porcelain to something straight out of a gallery. For the connoisseur in your life, this might be the one that they cherish the most.

Veja’s leather offering is responsibly sourced, as part of Luisaviaroma’s dedication to stocking sustainable products under their tagline LVRSustainable. Kill two birds with one stone (figuratively, ofc) – upgrade him, and get him something planet-friendly too.
