This post has been updated summer 2021 to include new ideas and make sure all the products are available for you to purchase!
Dos and Don’ts When You’re Looking for Classy, Luxurious Gifts for Her
If you’re unsure of how to shop for an affordable luxury gift for your wife, girlfriend, mother, sister, or daughter, consider a few guidelines:
- Look for items that are refined. Gaudy is NOT classy!
- Same goes for size. Bigger isn’t always better. Classy women are understated and elegant.
- Try to find unique or one of a kind items.
- Opt for higher quality materials. 18K gold is more vibrant than 9K gold. Cashmere is better than cotton, and cotton is better than polyester.
- Classy women are eco-conscious. Blood diamonds aren’t cool! Consider lab-created gems. They’re more pristine gems and conflict-free.
- Stop the disposables! Reusable items are perfect for your classy girlfriend or wife.
- Look for items in metallic (gold, copper, rose gold) or black. Avoid prints!
- When doing personalization, make sure it’s modest and not in-your-face.
Amazon and Etsy
If you’ve read another gift guide from Wild Simple Joy, you know that we like to practice mindful and eco-friendly purchasing habits. Amazon is a great place to order from if you’re in a pinch, or need your gift shipped fast!
Etsy might take longer to ship, and might even need time to put together your personalized gift together, specifically for her. So make sure you order with plenty of time to spare! Most handmade or personalized gifts take time, and many of these are from small businesses without the shipping power of major companies like Amazon.
I encourage you to shop with Etsy whenever possible.
For each gift idea, I offer two or three selections that will serve your classy needs perfectly.
As always, I try to maintain regular care of the items I recommend, but occasionally, a few will go out of stock before I have the chance to replace them with another item. If you have an item you wanted but it’s out of stock, please don’t hesitate to email me to let me know, and I will look for a new recommendation for you that is similar and just as stunning.
These 22 best affordable luxury gifts for her are anywhere from $5 to $100.
$ = $5-25
$$ = $25-50

40 Best Affordable Luxury Gifts for Her
(Updated August 2021)
Affordable Luxury Gifts She Can Wear
This necklace is simple and stunning with a single coin medallion with a hammered texture on a long, gold chain. Definitely for the understated, classy woman. Sometimes simple is best!
A lovely gold coin necklace, it’s simply stunning with a low neckline. It’s a luxury gift for your wife without breaking the bank.
Sarah Cornwell Jewelry has an incredible rating on Etsy, and I can personally vouch for the quality of items as well as the customer service you will receive. These simple drop earrings and bar necklace are classic!
Perhaps you can’t afford quality cut diamonds, but Herkimer diamonds are actually clear quartz crystals with special traits that make them more valuable (or at least more interesting!) These Herkimer diamond earrings are for the classy woman who is also a little rough around the edges.
If you’re daring enough to get your girl a dress as a gift, then look for something classy with a little sass to it. This black maxi dress can be dressed up or down and perfect for the classy woman with a bohemian side.
Or if the first choice is too revealing, perhaps something a little more understanded and modest is a better choice. (Yes, both modest and tantalizing as seen above can both be classy.) This black linen boatneck dress from Love and Confuse is your choice!
It’s 2021 and the pandemic is still going strong with the latest Delta variant. Classy women still wear face masks. Check out this one from Higgins Creek 6. It’s simple and satin, and available in multiple colors.
Blush and Rose gold are still popular classy colors for 2021, and these facemasks from Crafty Classix are well constructed and simple!
Affordable Luxury Gifts for Her That She Can Carry
This phone case is exquisite art. With ivory, gold, and black, you can’t get any more classy or luxury than this. It’s on the more expensive side though, so check your budget!
This black and gold marble phone case is more affordable. With minimalist initials on the bottom, it’s perfectly classy for the woman who wants to look like she has money without spending a ton of it in the first place.
If your classy woman reads a lot (as most classy women do), then she’ll probably want an E-reader. There’s no better one than the Kindle. And while we think of devices like this as being not affordable, you can get the previous version for less than $100.
Sometimes, depending on sales, you can even get the newer Kindle for under $100 as well.
If your gift is going to a classy woman who loves Starbucks, consider getting her a hot tumbler. Rose gold is still in… utilize this beautiful color! This one from Hello My Hart Shop comes in different sizes.
Want something a little more personalized? It’s no longer Starbucks… just fill in the name of your friend, girlfriend, wife, or sister. It’s a hot tumbler, but it comes with a straw, especially for the classy woman who doesn’t want to stain her teeth.
Simple and sophisticated, this water bottle helps you look classy and save the planet while doing it. Small, understated initials are in script font toward the bottom. This water bottle has a 500ML capacity.
This ships from the UK, but if you’re in the US, shipping is completely reasonable.
Is your classy girl eco-conscious and health conscious? Copper might be a good choice for her. Copper is renowned in ayurveda to have healing properties. This water bottle has a 950ml capacity.
Might offer free shipping!
Affordable Luxury Gifts for Her Home
Another set of towels, these are linen. Linen is an extremely high-quality fiber. With excellent reviews and different options for how many you want to purchase, these linen bath towels are luxurious and affordable!
Musty house smells? Not classy. Scented plugins for the wall? Those aren’t really classy either.
Get her a marble patterned essential oil diffuser instead. If she doesn’t use essential oils, be sure to get her a simple set of basic essential oils as well.
These tiny vases are adorable and sophisticated. Just large enough for one bud each, they would be a great minimalist piece for a bookshelf or mantel. A perfect luxury gift for a wife.
This shop may offer free shipping.
Marble is a texture that’s on-trend and it’s tres chic. With gold accents, these plant pots add class and sophistication to any home at an affordable price. Of course with Amazon it’s easy to get free shipping!
Classy women know their worth. They celebrate themselves in simple ways every day, and sometimes feminine body art in their homes can be a powerful statement. So help your wonderful, classy woman celebrate herself. No matter your heritage, you can find celebratory art that is simple and classy.
Another body line art piece, it is sensual and powerful. The beauty of printable line art is not just in that it is beautiful aesthetically, but also that it is simple and easy to download and print. This print, as well as the one listed above, are under $10, but it’s not classy to give your girl a downloaded file.
Print it out nicely and get it framed. Even something simple from Amazon will do just fine.
