Here at TCF, these splurge gift ideas may be the gift guide to rule them all. For those who already know how to budget, splurging can be fun when you really want to treat yourself and with the way this year has been, you deserve to! Spending a (possibly obscene) amount on something you’ve been dreaming about makes the gift even more special.
Now listen: We don’t recommend you splurge on too many gifts — unless you got it like that, then don’t mind us. In the face of sexy clothes, high-end brands, and gift sets, it’s easy to get carried away…
The thing about splurging on a gift is that you’re typically going to get this for someone extremely special to you, add it to your wish list, or just to give yourself a boost.
And with more designers and brands giving us luxe options to play in, we thought it only right a holiday gift guide that features a few of those items… right?
So, for those of you who have someone who lives the rich auntie life or that likes fancier things, here are the best gifts ideas to splurge on!

Believe me when I say this is the coziest loungewear, arguably, ever! From the 'Fits Everybody' collection to 'Cotton' collection and my personal favorite, the 'Soft Lounge' collection, you need it all. So, get your card ready & invest in yourself.
For a mere $125, this FORVR MOOD gift set is exactly what you need! The ultimate goal with Jackie Aina's latest venture is to have attainable luxury and we already have several items throughout our homes.

Every luxurious lady deserves some bling and this gift set is perfect for you! Step your gift game up with this gold-dipped eternal rose and the matching pendant and earrings. If this particular pair isn't your vibe, there are other color options that may suit your style.
Splurging on a fur jacket is like a right of passage into the fall and winter seasons. This two-tone one from Avenue screams warmth and showstopper. Retailing for $189, this is one item to go all-in for.
For something edgy and stylish, Rihanna's high-end FENTY brand is your go-to. This jaw-dropping earring will guarantee more than a few double-takes and are a definite conversation starter. It is sold individually for only $170, so for a bolder effect, treat yourself to a pair.
Since we're in the house for a bit longer than expected, why not look cute in-between Zoom calls? This ELOQUII satin set comes in two stunning colors and yes, you need both. Luckily for you, it's sold in separates, so feel free to mix, match and slay! The duster retails for $140 and the pants retail for only $75.
If you’re anything like Carrie Bradshaw trying to survive quarantine, add some color to your at-home bar! This stemware set from Estelle Colored Glass is exactly what you need to get you through these rough times. This striking emerald collection also has a matching decanter, stemless glasses, a cake stand, and champagne coupe stemware for additional purchase. This set, however, retails for $175.
Are you hitting the slopes this winter? If so, Snow Country Outerwear is the place for you! Ranging up to a 6X, you can grab your winter coat, these cute overalls, ski pants, and much more to keep you warm & stylish.
If you have grabbed this year's hottest purchase yet, this is the sign you've been waiting for! Every luxurious babe needs an everyday tote to match and this beautiful rose gold number from Telfar is exactly it. The highly sought-out vegan leather bag (that's also among Oprah's favorite things!!) comes in a plethora of colors and sizes. The mini option is only $150, but this oversized option can be yours for $257.
Sometimes you need to make a statement! This double breasted style done in a striking animal print will be the instant statement maker in your wardrobe. This Marina Rinaldi trench is all about the drama and luxe life! Tapping one of the high end designers in the plus size fashion space, you know you are making a statement with this coat at $1745. This coat is available up through a size 24.
Believe it or not, a great way to start the new year off is with a new place to sleep. Influencer Kelly Augustine recommends this, ehem, $999 mattress for plus size people who have a different set of sleeping needs — even if you don’t realize it. There’re different layers of foam, but is still firm enough to pull you out of a slumber.
One thing you absolutely have to throw down on is appliances. Something like an AirFryer to do the cooking for you while you’re working from home is a job well done! And this multi-functioning one from Macy's will set you back $180 until Christmas.
Just do it already because iPads are truly life-changing. Whether you're a creative or just a boss always on the move, it's like having a laptop in your purse without the bulk. You can still purchase the older generations, but this one starts out at $599 for the 64GB. If you need the memory of a MacBook, but the light weight of an iPad, the iPad Pro is the way to go.
This sensual piece is a staple that you need for indoors and outdoors. Whether you're prepping for a cozy night in or need to look cute while running errands, this robe from Kim+Ono is exactly what you need to add to your closet. It comes in white, deep teal, emerald, and black & retails for $120!
Just because the temperature is dropping and the need to keep your hands clean is increasing doesn't mean you have to deal with dry hands! For $345, snag the La Mer's bestselling hydrating cream, and the best part is that the travel size is small enough to fit in your purse.
Regardless of whether or not you’re purchasing any of these gifts to splurge on for a loved one or yourself, make sure it’s the gift.
There’s no point in splurging on something that’s totally wrong for you or your loved one, so be sure when making those final decisions (it’s harder to return things this time of year, obvi).
