It’s undeniable that the holiday season has become inextricably linked to shopping. Whether buying Christmas gifts for others or doing sales shopping for yourself, it’s arguably the most consumerist time of year. With a recent increase in awareness around sustainability, as well as extra cost-consciousness due to the pandemic, many shoppers are looking for ways to be smart consumers during the holidays. If you want to save money and do your part to reduce consumer waste while still indulging your friends and family in luxury gifts, here are a couple of tips for staying under budget.
Avoid retail jewelry stores
Jewelry and watches are incredibly popular holiday gifts, as they have virtually universal appeal. If you’re looking to get your husband a Rolex or your mother a diamond necklace, avoid shopping retail this year and instead opt for secondhand and antique options. Estate jewelry stores and reputable pawn shops such as Watch & Wares have vast selections of stunning, one-of-a-kind jewelry that will tell your special someone how much you appreciate them. All jewelry is certified and restored to its best condition, and all of our pieces are available at incredible prices that will keep you under budget. If you want the best in quality and price, avoid retail jewelry stores this holiday season and browse antique jewelry and watches from Watch & Wares.
Consider pre-loved luxury handbags
A stunning designer handbag is an incredible gift that will light up the eyes of anyone in your life. However, luxury handbag prices increase every year, and the quality rarely increases with it. If you want high-quality pre-owned luxury handbags that won’t break the bank, Watch & Wares Couture has a wide selection of used designer handbags. Luxury pre-owned designer handbags are often in near-pristine condition, but you can save thousands of dollars over retail value. Not only that, but purchasing pre-owned luxury handbags is a more sustainable choice, keeping goods out of landfills and giving them a longer life. If you want to find your mom, wife, or friend the perfect holiday gift this year, luxury pre-owned designer handbags are a thoughtful choice—in more ways than one.
Being a thoughtful consumer not only saves the planet, but it can often save you considerable money as well—all while recycling premier-quality goods that will leave their recipients in awe.
