2021 Luxury Holiday Gift Guide
"Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
We know what it's like... trying to find the perfect gift for the person that has everything. Or trying to bring a hostess gift that isn't the same bottle of wine or candle that you've brought every year. Or maybe you are just tired of supporting the big box stores and would like to find some hidden gems from small businesses. After all, they need our support now more than ever.
Well, you're in luck! We've put together our annual luxury holiday gift guide, but as always there's a twist. See, at Anuket Luxury Apothecary, we love the idea of accessible luxury. We want high quality gifts that our loved ones will cherish, but without making us go broke. It's the thought that counts, right?
So while these gifts FEEL luxurious, they are from small businesses, companies that practice sustainability, or ones that are doing good, all with options under $200! You'll look like the hero that put in extra thought to find the most unique gifts. And don't worry, we'll keep your secret... Scroll down for 23 of our favorite products of the season with a little something for everyone on your list. Don't forget that you've had a hard year too, so treating yourself is another form of self care that we can get behind!
PAPYRUS ROLL-ON FRAGRANCE
Of course we had to start the list with our personal favorite product to gift, and the reason Anuket is here today. Our signature scent papyrus roll-on fragrance is the perfect gift for anyone on your list because of its universally appealing scent and rareness. They are sure to not have it already, but also sure to love it. It's a win-win!
5-flavor variety pack of tea
We all know a tea lover, and what better gift to give them than a taster flight of five blends with a touch of craft sweetener already in the bag. When there's so much to life, why stick them with one single choice?
You get two sweetened tea bags of each flavor: Cocoa Berry Black, Bourbon Smoked White, Cinnamon Oolong Chai, Lavender Chamomile Kick, and Jasmine Honey Green. The Lavender Chamomile is our personal favorite, but with all these amazing flavors, they are sure to find a new favorite too!
Terrier Derriere - Brazil Cerrado Whole Bean Coffee
Looking to give a gift they'll definitely use? Coffee drinkers will swoon over Pooch & Bean. Their coffee is known for its smoothness and lack of bitterness, with many people saying they can easily drink it black. The Brazil Cerrado is a heavier medium roast. When brewed, you get a cypress earthy fragrance wrapped in cocoa.
The syrupy body of the Cerrado opens up notes of Mexican dark chocolate, nutmeg, and other spices. You may even taste a hint of crème brule. It's not just their morning coffee, it's a whole mood.
Mace Cordova "The Martin" Wood Watch
The gorgeous "The Martin" watch by Mace Cordova is a statement piece. Finished with ebony wood and gold stainless steel, it makes the perfect gift for the guy (or girl! Our founder has been known to rock Mace Cordova watches too) that has discerning taste, but at a surprisingly accessible price for such a solid timepiece. We love it here at Anuket because of its classic beauty but rugged style.

Luxury Beard Oil
The perfect gift for the bearded man, this luxurious beard oil boasts ingredients that will help beards grow longer and stronger, while softening hair. It is also infused with Anuket's signature scent papyrus for a sensual but light fragrance that lingers.

Katherine is the ultimate vegan leather makeup train case for the avid traveler on your list.

These beautiful and oh-so-soft pajamas are the functional but luxurious gift that no one will return. The buttery bamboo come in options for both men and women like separate shorts and tops, robes, or this boyfriend style sleep shirt pictured. And if you've never experienced the cloud-like hug that is bamboo clothing or sheets, you might want to pick some up for yourself too.
Gift Card for Sustainable Clothing Shopping

Not sure what to get that person that's hard to shop for? A gift card from ThredUp means they get to choose their own clothing, shoes, accessories, and more. But the best part? It's a sustainable source! ThredUp is an online thrift store, with some items even being brand new with tags, including designer options. We love this way to shop for new duds, without spending a ton or hurting the environment.
The Maggie Sweatshirt
Not only does this sweatshirt LOOK good, but it also DOES good too! Alivia sells womenswear "inspired by the expressions of creators with disabilities." While there are many beautiful options on their site, this cozy cropped fleece pullover, featuring a detailed embroidery interpretation of Allen Li's ‘Wacky Star’ artwork, caught our eye instantly. The unique sweatshirt is embroidered by Spectrum Designs, a non-profit that employs individuals with Autism, and whose mission is to help them lead full and productive lives through the world of work. With ten percent of every purchase donated directly to the creator's local non-profit, you can feel good about where your gift money is going.

A beautifully unique gold gilded oyster, accompanied by natural porous selenite crystals, and a bottle of Anuket fragrance of your choice. A few drops of scented oil on the selenite stones creates a luxurious fragrance diffuser for the home. No more candles, bottles of wine, or bath products when you don't know what to get for that hard-to-shop-for relative.
Curateur Luxury Subscription box

One of the best subscription boxes we've ever had a membership to, Curateur by Rachel Zoe is a thoughtfully selected and luxurious 5-product curation of fashion, beauty, and lifestyle products. A box is delivered each season and has a value of over $400. It's a great way to gift some new luxury products for a fraction of the price, and you can choose from a seasonal or annual membership to gift.
