The brand is offering an extra 30% off sitewide with code EXCLUSIVE30 at checkout — and that’s on top of the already marked-down Cyber Monday prices, so you can get a real steal.

Crafted by artisans in Spain, these ultra-wearable and high-quality booties are ideal for leveling up a holiday party look or slipping on for a day out with friends.
Vitamix Explorian Series E310
If you’re in the market for a new blender, it doesn’t get much better than a Vitamix! The brand has dozens of top-quality blenders that would make a perfect holiday present, and the highly-rated Explorian Series E310 just happens to be $50 off for a limited time. This high-performance, multi-use blender does an amazing job of blending up smoothies, crushing ice, pureeing vegetables and even pulverizing nuts into delicious, homemade nut butter. The 48-ounce container has enough capacity to blend batches for small family meals and it can self-clean in 60 seconds or less with no disassembly required.

Bric’s Bellagio 2.0 Spinner Trunk
When it comes to luggage, it almost always makes sense to invest in quality. Not only do high-end suitcases tend to last and come tricked out with extra features, but they also look cool as heck. If you’ve got a jet setter on your holiday shopping list whom you want to treat, the Bric’s Bellagio 2.0 30-inch Spinner Trunk is worth its lofty price. With Italian craftsmanship and old-school elegance, it’s no wonder the luggage brand has famous fans like Kate Middleton and Amal Clooney.

Sure, it’s a splurge — but compared to hiring a private bartender, the Bartesian premium cocktail maker is actually cost-conscious. This ultracool, futuristic gadget whips up more than 50 cocktail lounge-worthy drinks in under 30 seconds. Kind of like a Keurig for alcohol, the machine mixes liquor into drinks using cocktail capsules packed with high-quality extracts, juices and bitters. All you have to do is provide the alcohol, choose your booziness level and press a button. When it comes to luxury gifts for women, this one is a dream gift option for the cocktail lover or home entertainer.

Gurus Roomshoes Quilted Houseshoe
Unless your giftee lives in a mansion with heated floors, a really great pair of slippers will always be appreciated.

The Gurus Roomshoes are a fancy-yet-affordable option, handcrafted in Spain with diamond quilted uppers and a fleece midsole. They come with a rubber outsole, meaning they can be hybrid indoor/outdoor shoes if your giftee so desires.
