Gifts under €300


Sparkly, colorful, dainty – no matter who you’re shopping for, they’re bond to love a bit of sparkle. The good thing about shopping secondhand is that you can get your hands on some great deals. 

For the simple girl, you can get a simple silver necklace or ring from Tiffany & Co., a gold ring from Hermès. If she loves to dress up a tiny bit more, a gold brooch from Givenchy or a satin brooch from Chanel could be just the thing. 

If you’re shopping for a girl who loves to go all out when it comes to her jewelry, you can perhaps look for more colorful items – a beaded necklace from Valentino – or something a bit bigger and not as dainty – a leather bracelet from Hermès or Saint Laurent. 

The Y2K trend is still going strong, so anything that sparkles or has logos is bound to be a win – think Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie! A Celine or Dior bracelet with letter charms or the classic Chanel logo earrings are great options.

For the woman who loves that little something extra

Hair accessories are a great way to add personal style to a simplistic outfit. Barrettes from Louis Vuitton, sculptural hair bands from Fendi and headbands from Celine are just some examples of hair accessories that will elevate an outfit completely while all being under €300. It’s something any woman will be happy to receive as it’s easy to incorporate and make your own.

Gifts Under 300


Wear them as a headband, around the handle of your favorite bag or around your neck the old-fashioned way – it’s all about scarves. Dainty silk scarves from Hermès, Dolce & Gabbana or Celine will provide any fashion girl with endless hours of fun as they’re so versatile and can be used for many different things depending on the occasion. We are however in the winter season and your friend might be in need of a warmer scarf. Don’t fret! The classic checkered wool scarves from Burberry or multicolor scarves from Missoni also make a great present.

Leather, fabric, black, brown, inconspicuous or with a large buckle. Belts are a great way to add a subtle accessory (while keeping your pants or skirt in place!). A belt can be a good gift for the woman who has everything.

For the practical woman

When it comes to Christmas gifts, some people enjoy more practical things. A great gift for a working (or studying) woman is a calendar or agenda. When shopping secondhand you can get a great deal on agendas from some of the best brands – we’re talking Louis Vuitton, Bottega Veneta and even Chanel! 

Another practical yet fashionable gift is an iPhone cover. We all use our phones everyday, so why not use them as an extension of our style? The girls with a love for the classics will love a simple cover from Prada or Louis Vuitton and the ones with a preference for the colorful will love a multicolored cover from Gucci or Dolce and Gabbana. 

One more thing we all need – key chains or key holders. With a budget of €300 you’re spoiled for choice! Leather straps from Bottega Veneta, Loewe and Hermès as well as animals from Prada and Fendi, the choice is yours.
