12 Affordable Gifts That Feel Priceless

12 Affordable Gifts That Feel Priceless

Dear friend,

Here in Tatcha-land, we delight in gifting — that’s why we’re incredibly honored to fill your life with our treasures. But when you’re sticking to a strict holiday shopping budget, sometimes the joy of treasure-hunting for the perfect gift can get lost in the process. Thankfully, discovering affordable presents for your loved ones doesn’t need to feel like an overwhelming task; there are plenty of gifts out there that feel priceless, but without hefty price tags. Perhaps you’ll find exactly what you’re seeking among the list of thoughtful, luxurious gift ideas ahead.

  1. For the loved one you want to spoil: Kissed with Gold
    This set is gleaming with 23-karat gold leaf, and it’s enough to infuse your gift recipient’s life with luxury! Anybody on your list will feel spoiled when they pull a golden mirror out of their purse for touch-ups.
  2. For the person with wanderlust: Minted Gold Foil-Pressed City Map
    Commemorate a city that’s close to your loved one’s heart by gifting them with this stunning, gold-pressed city map. With the 8-by-10-inch size priced at $36, you might be tempted to buy one for yourself, too. (We can’t decide between San Francisco or Tokyo!)
  3. For the culinary genius in your life: Hana Flake Japanese Sea Salt
    The chef in your life will know the value of imported salts, and this hana no shio flaked sea salt harvested from the seas of Japan will be a huge asset to their culinary arsenal. Packaged in a glass jar ideal for displaying in the kitchen, this decadent salt will help infuse their favorite dishes with a whole new level of flavor.
  4. For your zen friend: Indigo Soothing Silk Body Butter
    Gifting a spa treatment to everybody on your list might not fall within the budget, but this soothing cream will make them feel like they’re receiving the VIP treatment. Infused with calming Japanese indigo, this treasure is the next best thing to a spa.
  5. For the modern jet-setter: Calpak Power Luggage Tag
    Self-charging suitcases are all the rage in luxury travel, but buying a full set of USB-equipped luggage might not be in the realm of possibility for the globetrotter on your list. Fear not: you can help them enjoy the same luxury and convenience of powering devices on the go with this charging-equipped luggage tag!
  6. For the one with the colorful personality: Kyoto Kisses Mini Lipstick or Japanese Blossoms Silk Lipstick Trios
    Because each petite lipstick in these trios is made with real silk and then packaged like a pocket-sized pop of color, your gift recipient will feel like they have struck gold every time they re-apply their favorite shade.
  7. For the cozy homebody: Illume Radiant Metals Candle
    Candle-obsessives know that burn time is key to a luxury home fragrance experience, and this $30 Illume find offers 70 whole hours! Yes, you read that right. And because the candle comes encased in a stunning metal votive, the person on your list will want to use it as a catchall after the candle wax has melted away.
  8. For the loved one who deserves a spa day: Pampering Camellia Trio
    This trio of treasures is infused with antioxidant-rich camellia oil that will make the person on your gift list feel like they’ve been treated to wellness from head to toe. Because this nourishing ingredient has been treasured in Japan for centuries, you’re giving the gift of time-tested pampering.
  9. For the social butterfly: Uncommon Goods Woven Wine Tote with Glasses
    For the loved one who delights in entertaining, consider this hand-woven water hyacinth basket that holds a bottle of wine and six glasses. They’ll love it so much, you will be the first guest invited to their inaugural wine picnic!
  10. For the friend who never misses teatime: World Market Hand-Painted Tea Cannisters
    Help the gift recipient care for their tea collection with these airtight canisters hand-painted with stunning black and ivory designs. Not a tea person? Not to worry — the beautifully designed containers work for other kitchen must-haves, like coffee, rice, sugar, or spices.
  11. For the one who is your #fitspo: Fitbit Flex 2
    There are plenty of fitness trackers on the market, but this affordable Fitbit model is a perfect pick for the wellness buff in your life. With a chic, minimalist design and tons of handy features, they’ll wonder how they ever lived without it!
  12. For the person with a radiant smile: Camellia Kisses Lip Balm Trio
    The nourishing balms in this set shimmer with 23-karat gold, and are contained in beautiful pots that will make the luxury-lover smile anytime they see one. And because they impart only a light tint of sheer color, there’s no need to fret over finding a perfect match; each balm is universally flattering.

Wishing you a beautiful holiday season,

The Tatcha Family
