Get Luxe Christmas Gifts For Less

Be it because of large families or expensive taste, Christmas can become a pricey time of year. But why start out the new year paying off your gifting expenses when you can satisfy both your loved ones and your bank account?

We at SheFinds have found some pricey gifts and their affordable dopplegangers. So, you can retire early from your part-time holiday gig and use the extra time and cash to indulge in more egg-nog!

This Milly beaded silk mini dress, at $450, costs as much as some of my friend's rent. But, with its beautiful embellishments and easy fit, it'd make a lovely addition to anyone's under-the-tree. Why spend $450, though, when the look is captured just as geniusly for $39.50? Check out Wet Seal's near identical frock

At $27,600, Lotus Arts de Vivre's serpent bracelet costs more than my car. In fact, I believe it is worth more than I am. If you don't feel like spending thirty grand on a bauble, rest assured that there are other options that don't require a second mortgage. Roberto Cavalli's lizard cuff is on sale for $375. It looks nearly identical, excepting the substitution of an amphibian for serpent. But that just means you get some legs with your savings of $27,225.

Let's face it–between the price and potential cruelty to innocent African children, diamonds are a no-go for both the socially conscious and those with a beer budget. But these artsy rings from www.greenergrassdesign.com and www.catbirdnyc.com evoke the luxury of diamonds in an ironic, self-aware, and, most importantly, inexpensive manner. They may not cut glass, but at $120-$200, they also won't cut into your disposable income. Forever 21 also has a great selection of expensive looking bling that costs less than your lunch.
