Believe it or not, you do not have to be a multi-millionaire to provide yourself with a few items of indulgence. The most popular items people tend to look for as luxury items are handbags for the ladies and stylish watches for men so let’s take a look at what you can splash out on for under a grand. We will start with the ladies and designer bags. Remember Christmas is around the corner so maybe a few hints to your partner might mean you do not have to pay for it.
As you know most top design brand handbags and clutches form the top fashion houses can cost thousands of dollars but there are a few that can be actually quite affordable. For example an Alexander McQueen Skull envelope clutch can be bought for around $900 and a Bottega Veneta Intracciato tote bag for less than a thousand US. Another for less than $1000 is a Burberry Maidstone satchel or a Denim Chanel pouch.
For the men, who doesn’t like to wear a nice timepiece on their wrist? Obviously the likes of a Rolex Oyster perpetual are going to be out of your league but there are still some quality items from top brands to consider. For example, a Tag Heur Formula One with a steel bracelet comes in around $950 or a Lacroix Alligator automatic with a leather strap at just under $900. If you do a bit of searching around you can even pick up a Gucci Dive for as little as $600 – bargain.
If it is a nice bottle of champagne or wine you like then you have plenty of options here. Many of the top label merchants offer top quality champagnes that do not break the bank. For instance, there are bottles of Crystal, Dom Peringnon and Krug champagnes that can all be bought for well under a $1000. In some cases you might be able to buy two! For wine lovers a bottle of 1990 Latour Bordeaux will cost around $1000 and another Bordeaux, a 1961 Haut Brion at $895. For those who like white wines a 2010 Coche Dury white burgundy should set you back $750.
As you can see, there are lots of things available out there to treat yourself to a touch of luxury without putting too much of a dent in your bank account.
