  • by Erika Cellupica
  • 4 min read

When it comes to holiday gift giving, a luxury gift need not come with a luxury price tag. This gift guide offers recommendations for thoughtful home and personal gifts that are more affordable than they look.

In the world of luxury home linen, high-quality products often represent a significant investment. And, as we tell our clients, those products are worth the cost. But not every luxury product necessarily comes with an imposing price tag. To help with your gift giving this season, the Fine Linen and Bath team has curated this list of exquisite gifts that embody the essence of luxury at accessible price points.

Read on to find the perfect present for any gift recipient on your list.

NEST New York Candles and Diffusers: A Superior Sensory Experience

Our newest collection here at Fine Linen and Bath, NEST New York fragrances are an indulgent fragrance experience for the home. Choose from a classic candle, a large three-wick candle, or a flameless reed diffuser. The master perfumers at NEST New York meticulously infuse scent into proprietary premium wax for a clean, even burn. The fine fragrance fills your room beautifully without ever overwhelming your senses. Our seasonal favorites are the Birchwood Pine candle and diffuser with an inviting aroma of a majestic winter forest; and the Holiday candle and diffuser, a heady blend of mandarin orange, pine, cloves, cinnamon, vanilla, and amber.
