The other week, we rounded up the cheapest, nicest gifts from the fanciest brands we could think of. Turns out, you really, really enjoyed this. And turns out, there are many, many extremely fancy brands out there — so we’ve done a part two. Who wouldn’t love a Tom Ford beard comb or a $6 Tata Harper face oil?

A travel-size vial of Tata Harper’s clarifying and lightweight moisturizer. (If you’re looking to spend a little more, here’s another Tata Harper product we love.)
