5 Fashion Premium Gifts That Will Retain Their Value
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and this premium gifts giving season, if you’re lucky enough to be expecting a present under the tree.
Interestingly, while the retail industry was in flux this year, people still bought premium gifts in droves.
There are several reasons for this, but one is that in times of economic uncertainty, it’s a good idea to invest in something that will retain its value. And while something like a home might be out of the question for many young people right now, they can still hedge their bets on a premium gifts in the form of fashion, handbags, or accessories.
Of course, we’re no economists! But we do know fashion.
When it comes to pieces that make for a sound gift investment, here’s your blueprint for success.
It’s not just a fashion industry urban legend that handbags from major brands — say: the likes of Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Gucci, and Hermes — are a solid premium gifts purchase. They really are! At the end of the day, these brands have achieved their iconic status for a reason, and people will always be interested in them. When deciding where to put your money, you’ve got two distinctive options: ultra-rare or faultless classic. In other words; something that will sell to either a collector or the average buyer if push comes to shove.
When seeking out a timepiece, it’s smart to enlist the help of an expert. There are certain brands and styles that will always remain ahead of the curve, like Rolex, Cartier, and Patek Philippe. Watches are personal and taste-depending, but if nothing else, remember that these premium gifts could be in your family for several generations to come.
If your vice is clothing, it’s a little bit trickier to decide what to invest in. Although many trends are cyclical, they’re also fleeting, so if your goal is to select something that retains its worth, go for a failsafe option like a wool coat, tweed jacket, silk dress, or an embellished showstopper. It’s important to store your garment safely and appropriately as per the fabric recommendation and have it cleaned or repaired by a trusted professional.
In the world of bling, there are undoubtedly big names. Of course, going with a traditionally-famous brand is a smart decision when investing in a statement jewelry piece. One way to do this is to keep an eye out for estate sales. These days, there are several apps that help you pinpoint upcoming (and affordable) public auctions from the comfort of your couch. Your dream premium gifts might be just a few clicks away!
We all have that one stylish elderly relative who makes owning a luxe silk scarf (think: Gucci, Pucci, Hermes) seem like the ultimate sartorial life goal. For the younger generation, printed scarves are having a moment again, worn as retro bandana tops, handbag accessories, or hair adornment. Tres chic!
