For a fancy friend or special someone, these splurgy gifts are actually worth getting.

In this year of canceled plans — whether that was a postponed wedding or a missed birthday brunch — you probably had to send out small gifts that can fit in a mailbox rather than see them opened IRL.

But now that the holidays are upon us, you might be hoping to get the friends and family members that helped you get through the year something even more special to celebrate the end of 2020, like access to the most exclusive club around: the Finer Things Club.

While we’ve been busy trying to find gifts for everyone on our lists, too, we thought that it would be good to have a guide to splurge-worthy gifts that would work for anyone you’re still shopping for.

Not only will these gifts make someone feel extra fancy schmancy, but they’ll be practical enough that they’ll think of you whenever they use it (which will be pretty often!).

Iff you’re still looking for shopping inspiration this holiday season, you can turn to our guides on gifts for older parents that they’ll actually use, people who really miss museums, from small shops you won’t find anywhere else and stocking stuffers under $20 you’ll be tempted to keep for yourself.
