Despite what you might think, the art of gift-giving isn't actually about the details of the gift itself but rather the kind of impression it leaves. Whether or not you really spend a fortune on a gift hardly matters as long as whatever you're wrapping up gives off the vibe that you put a lot of thought and effort into picking it out. But what exactly constitutes such a gift? Well, you're about to find out, as we have 22 luxurious gift ideas in store for you.

You're probably shopping for multiple people on your list at the same time, so chances are your budget for each person is pretty restricted. We get it, which is why we went ahead and sourced the most expensive-looking gifts we could find that are all magically around or under $150. From a pair of beautiful gold hoop earrings to a silky H&M blouse, keep scrolling to shop each of our picks.
