Are you looking for the perfect gift for the special someone or even a friend who loves designer goods, but want to stay in the budget, then this gift guide is ideal for you. I have listed best designer pieces under $200 that she will love and actually use.
Yes, while I love to get something designer, I have often realized most designer gift items in that much a low budget are stuff that no one will actually use. But its really important for me to give gifts that are actually usable but at the same time look nice, so every time they use it, they think of you.
I am splitting them in categories so, even if you don’t like what I have shared you know what to look for.
Leather Card Cases
This is my best friend when it comes to getting my handbag ready for going out. Usually party handbags are smaller and its really annoying that you can’t fit your wallet in them. A lot of them have compartments but they are so small or could only hold cards. What if you want to also carry some cash.
The Leather Card case solves that problem. This makes for a perfect gift item that is small but really really useful and they will thank you for gifting it to them. And it really does not hurt to have more than one of these as well. Match it with the bag.
Moschino Leather Logo Leather Card Case
This pretty card case has 4 card slots and looks so fun with the logo. Love that it comes in a red color, but its also available in black. I love the grained leather that wears really well.
Dolce & Gabbana Logo Leather Card Case
The embossed leather makes it look minimalist and great for someone who does not like a lot of gold details. This is also great for men. The leather is a bit shinier, but because there are no other hardware details, this looks fine.
Mulberry Credit Card Case
The Cognac or Saddle brown color of Mulberry is the best brown shade out there. The grained leather in the shade looks so rich and luxurious. Its a steal for the price point. But if you are not a fan of this color, this card case comes in 12 more shades.
MCM Logo Card Case
The embossed overall logo makes this a perfect designer gift under budget. And honestly, MCM’s logo is really fun to carry as well. But the color of the logos are subtle, so it does not scream in your face. And this card case comes in another shade as well.
Acne Studio Leather Card Holder
I love the fact that this card case is not in the standard shape. Its annoying when your cards are all snugged and you have to put effort to pull them out. But with this card case, you can easily pull out the cards you need. And this card case also comes in black which looks minimal and modern.
Burberry Check Canvas & Leather Card Case
This is a canvas and leather combo card case. but it also has a middle compartment which you can use to put cash in. I love the classic Burberry plaid. Because with this pattern you don’t really need a logo do you. And because its canvas, its weather friendly too.
Skinny Silk Scarves
There is something luxurious about silk scarves. They feel super soft and look expensive. And you don’t just wear them around your neck. You can wear them as a hair accessory. You can elevate your handbag by wrapping them with a silk scarf. You can wear it as a bracelet around your arm as a Parisian style. And they also come in great price point and perfect gift item.
Givenchy All Over Silky Twilly Scarf
Givenchy logo is so abstract and looks perfect on this skinny scarf. It almost looks like a retro print and is a modern accessory that you can also wear to places where you would not want to wear designer goods. Because its in black and white you can wear it both with neutral and colorful outfits and handbags.
Burberry Multicolored Skinny Silk Scarf
This Burberry scarf is perfect for all year round. And it has a floral print on one side and logo print on another, that adds more definition and detail to the scarf. And a bright colored scarf always stands out and elevates your outfit.
Mulberry Striped Skinny Scarf
If you are a neutral lover, then this is a the perfect scarf for you. The neutral shades makes it professional looking and minimalist. And the mulberry typography adds subtle definition.
MCM Logo Silk Twilly Scarf
This is such a fun scarf with Black and Tan sides with MCM logo details. I love the idea of the contrast colors. When you wrap it around your neck, you will also see a glimpse of the other shade which is so fun.
Gucci Horsebit skinny Scarf
The Gucci horse bit pattern is a timeless classic. No matter how old this scarf gets, it will never go out of style. This is one of the biggest reasons, I like to buy designer goods with classic patterns. I like that they don’t have anything else going on in the scarf, so all eyes go to the Horsebit pattern.
Mulberry Colorblock Skinny Scarf
This scarf came in the best shade of the year, green. And is minimalist and modern as well with the color blocking. It would look great on casual as well as formal clothes.
Gucci Floral Skinny Scarf
I am also a fan of the Gucci logo with floral print pattern. You will see in this in Gucci canvas bags. You really don’t need to see the Gucci logo to know that its Gucci because of this pattern. Hence makes a perfect gift for someone, who does not like to flaunt a lot of logo.
You cannot find fine jewelry under $200 other than a dot maybe, but this is a great option as a designer fashion gift that still looks luxurious and iso good quality to last someone compared to cheaper fashion jewelry. And why wouldn’t she like some nice piece of jewelry. Every time they wear it, they will think of you and smile. I love to gift jewelries to my friends and family, because it feels special and looks awesome too.
Oscar De La Rante Classic Button Stud Earrings
These vintage style of earrings will make a perfect heirloom as well. The gray stone contrasts the gold and as a structured they will add a luxe touch to anyone’s outfit. These make for a perfect piece of jewelry someone would want to wear over the holidays. But they also come in two more stone shades.
Salvatore Ferragamo Medium Gancio Stud Earrings
If they have a minimalist style aesthetic, then these would make for the perfect Christmas gift. The simple Ferragamo logo is a classic style and looks great as earrings, but the gold color makes it more luxurious. If you are not a fan of gold, then they also come in silver.
Isabel Marant Stone Pendant Necklace
This necklace would look amazing with all the knitwear they will wear. Isabel Marant accessories always look bohemian and luxurious. But not hippy at all.
Salvatore Ferragamo Studded Earrings
These earring are a more luxe version of the earlier ones I shared above. The rock studded earrings look so rich and expensive. But they can be worn everyday as well as on special occasion because of the small size. And I am glad that this one comes in gold only, because the rocks shine better in the shade.
Jacquemus Le Collier Chiquito Necklace
Jacquemus is an up and coming brand that is now loved widely. And this bag shaped pendant necklace looks so fun and perfect for someone whose style is more feminine and playful. While you might think that the bag looks silly, it actually looks really cool and modern.
With the $200 budget you can find some good beauty gifts and the great part is that you can buy multiple of those. You know, more gifts are always better than 1 gift as I say, haha. And you don’t have to just buy perfumes, because I feel like that’s what comes to our mind when we think of beauty gifts. Check out some awesome ones in the list.
Dior Addict Lip Set
I own this and love that the lip gloss or balm whatever you want to call has a subtle pink tint that adds a rosy color to your lips while hydrating. This makes for an excellent give they will enjoy everyday.
La Mer Replenishing Discovery Set
One of the most luxurious beauty brand and really sorted after as well. And honestly, this is in my wishlist as well. I love that it comes with a Regenerating Serum, The Hydrating Infused Emulsion, the eye cream and the moisturizer all in travel size. So you can try it at home or take them with you on your next resort escape.
Chance by Chanel Perfume Gift Set
Chance by Chanel is one of the most popular fragrance out there and I actually prefer this over Coco Mademoiselle. The fragrance is subtle and fresh. And this gift set comes with a travel size perfumes. Typically its hard to find travel size perfumes, so when you find a set, I say grab it.
Christian Louboutin Satin Silky Lip color
The classic Louboutin shade in a lipstick. What better can you ask for. This lipstick also comes in a matte shade, but I love it because of the case. It looks like an art piece and perfect as a gift.
Miss Dior blooming Bouquet perfume Set
Dior is another classic perfume that smells good on any one. But this set comes with a full size and travel size perfume along with a body lotion. And for someone who uses their body lotion, it smells divine.
Chanel Chance Bath Tabs
Finally Chanel came up with an awesome gift idea. These Chance bath tabs will make them and their bathroom smell amazing. Now that I saw it, its already added to my cart. Its a perfect gift for someone who loves to have a bath ritual.
Versace Bright Crystal Gift Set
Another awesome perfume that smells great on anyone. There is a reason this gift set is so popular, it not only comes with a travel and a full size perfume, it also comes with a body lotion and shower gel. Of all Versace perfume, this one is my favorite.
