Did you say something “below the belt,” do something foolish, or messed up big time that it hurt the feelings of someone you love and care about? Set your worries aside. Biltmore Loan and Jewelry is here to help you make amends on Global Forgiveness Day. While nothing tops saying “I’m sorry” in person, these luxury gift ideas can calm the storm and show how sorry you are.
1. A Designer Handbag for Her
No woman can resist the beauty and elegance of a handbag from the world’s most illustrious fashion brands. Hermés and Chanel are among the Top 10 Brands That Rule the Fashion Scene in 2019. In addition, millennials — a.k.a. the future of luxury — love Gucci and Louis Vuitton. To a career woman with impeccable style, a sincere apology along with a handbag from any of these brands may reward you with forgiveness.
2. A Designer Backpack
From Gucci’s Guccissima to LV’s Palm Springs Reverse Monogram, backpacks for him or her make an excellent apology gift, regardless if the giftee is a student or has graduated years ago. So enter the designer backpack territory now — a guaranteed statement accessory that will elevate anyone’s style game.
3. A Genuine Leather Belt
A daily necessity for most men and women, gifting a designer belt helps remind whosever feelings you hurt that you are remorseful.
Belts are often a small part of someone’s entire wardrobe, but without them, an outfit may look incomplete. For example, your husband may look dashing in his coat and tie, but without a leather belt to pull the look together, the appeal of his attire would degrade. The same fashion dilemma applies to women since a great belt can cinch the waist and make any outfit look polished. Thus, if you are looking for a foolproof apology gift, you can never go wrong with a designer belt.
4. A Scarf or Twilly
A scarf always makes a good apology gift, especially during the holiday season. It’s practical, gets mileage from Fall until Spring, and embodies a warm I’m sorry hug whenever the recipient wears it around his or her neck.
If the climate is warmer where you live, consider buying a twilly instead. Twillies are long, narrow scarves made from 100 percent silk. Whoever you’re giving one to can use it as a neck scarf to achieve an effortlessly sophisticated look. Twillies are also excellent bag accessories. Most women wrap these unique scarves along the entire handle of a handbag.
5. Gold, Silver, or Diamond Jewelry for Her
Jewelry is a beautiful and thoughtful gift for when you really, deeply, royally messed up. Dazzling pieces from Tiffany & Co., Harry Winston, and Cartier offers all the sparkle a woman longs for. Not to mention, she can recognize the box from a mile away.
You can’t put a price tag on forgiveness, and a piece of jewelry from these acclaimed jewelers is a substantial apology gift that shows the depth of your remorse.
6. Cufflinks for Him
Cufflinks are an indisputable bold statement of style and refinement. According to Ian Klopfer, Staff Gemologist in Fine Jewelry and Timepieces for Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, “Cufflinks are one of the few versatile men’s jewelry accessories that can add a touch of flair.”
These customizable accessories are often made from precious metals and may include quality gemstones. With designs ranging from vintage to modern and classic to playful, cufflinks are an ideal apology gift for men, especially since they fit any occasion.
7. A Luxury Timepiece
There’s nothing like giving someone a high-end watch to symbolize your sincerest sentiments. If you’ve had a falling out with someone you love, gifting a timepiece from premier brands, including Tag Heuer, Movado, Chopard, or Baume Mercier, may help make things right. Your choices are endless, ranging from 18k yellow gold wristwatches to timepieces embellished with diamonds to add more sparkle to your sentiment. It will be impossible for your sweetheart to stay mad if you give it with the promise of never hurting their feelings again.
8. Designer Shoes for Her
Take a step forward, own up to your mistake, and ready in your hands a stunning pair of designer shoes that will make your lover say “you’re forgiven!”
When it comes to spending your hard-earned money on shoes, it is often best to forego trends and choose designer classics that come back season after season. Some prime examples include Christian Louboutin Pigalle courts, Valentino Rockstud heels, Jimmy Choo Anouk courts, and Hermés slider sandals.
9. Designer Sunglasses
Are you ready to stop being shady and make peace? Say it with a pair of sunglasses. Aside from their ability to protect the eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays, designer sunglasses have become a popular medium to express and enhance someone’s personality in style. Such extravagant eyewear ensures high-quality material, scratch-free lenses, lasting color, and perfect fittings.
Today, sunglasses are mandatory fashion accessories that guarantee a striking appearance when worn. If you are guilty of being shady, sunglasses from Judith Leiber, Tom Ford, Christian Dior, and several other luxe brands make an excellent apology gift that’s thoughtful and punny.
10. A Rare Collectible
Because really, nothing says “I’m truly, madly, deeply sorry” than helping a collector find a rare missing piece from their collection.
The Bottom Line
When a conflict arises, there is no getting around the fact that it hurts. However, the silver lining is knowing that despite your argument, your relationship has a foundation built on love and concern for one another. And although a luxury gift can’t resolve everything, it certainly helps.
