Last 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 luxe Byredo hand cream?

These popular Charlotte Tilbury matte lipsticks have fun names like Pillow Talk and Bond Girl, and they come in very likable shades of red and nude if you don’t want to shell out for one of her magic creams.

Tatcha’s beauty goodies are very coveted, but if you’re shopping for something more affordable than their skin creams, try their well-packaged blotting papers.

For someone you share a bathroom with: a chrome-plated Alessi squeezer to wring out every last bit of toothpaste.
