Best high-end gifts for grandma

Best high-end luggage set

Badgley Mischka Diamond Three-Piece Expandable Luggage Set: available at Home Depot


Our take: A sleek, classy-looking three-piece luggage set from the iconic brand Badgley Mischka.

What we like: This set features three expandable suitcases with 360-degree rolling wheels, allowing her to easily push or pull them. The black shells are made from a durable yet lightweight material and feature gold zippers and wheels.


What we dislike: Hardshell luggage is more limited in its capacity than softshell.

Best high-end sweater

Charter Club Crew-Neck Cashmere Sweater: available at Macy's

Our take: This is an incredibly soft and luxurious cashmere sweater available in 16 colors.

What we like: Available in both petite and regular sizes, this is likely to be Grandma's new favorite sweater. Soft and warm, it's perfect for fall and winter. She can dress the sweater up with a scarf or jewelry, or down with a pair of jeans and flats.

What we dislike: Several reviewers mentioned the sweater was thinner than expected.

Best high-end purse

Ralph Lauren Pebble Reversible Tote: available at Macy's

Our take: It's a high-end leather reversible tote with a removable zip pouch.

What we like: This stunning bag comes in your choice of three color combinations, each with the signature Ralph Lauren stamp and hardware. It's quite spacious, with a width of 16 inches and a height of 11 inches. The handles measure 10 inches and the bag closes via a clasp at the top of the tote.

What we dislike: The clasp closure of this bag is not as secure as a zipper.

Best high-end watch

Anne Klein Women’s Gold-Tone Link Bracelet Watch: available at Amazon

Our take: Classic gold Anne Klein watch with a slender gold-tone bracelet and beautiful mother-of-pearl dial.

What we like: Grandma will love to tell the time with this three-hand quartz gold-tone watch with easy-to-see numbers. The watchband includes an extender that can be attached to the clasp to extend as far as 7 inches. Anne Klein offers a warranty should anything happen to the watch.

What we dislike: The watch is water-resistant but not waterproof.

Best high-end gloves

Charter Club Leather Tech Gloves: available at Macy's

Our take: It's a pair of cashmere-lined leather gloves with tech-friendly thumbs and forefingers.

What we like: Grandma won't have to take off her gloves to operate her phone with these specially-designed black gloves. Unlike most other gloves that only offer a choice between medium and large, these gloves are offered in sizes XS-XXL.

What we dislike: Some reviewers found the gloves to be too small.

Best high-end mascara

Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Waterproof Mascara: available at Sephora

Our take: It's a high-end waterproof mascara with amazing curling power.

What we like: The specially-designed wand seamlessly delivers the mascara, thickening your lashes without clumping. The formulation keeps your lashes curled all day long.

What we dislike: Several reviewers mentioned it was difficult to remove without an oil-based remover.

Best high-end sunglasses

Prada Polarized Sunglasses: available at Macy's

Our take: A flawless pair of oversized black shades, complete with a polarized coating.

What we like: These rectangular glasses feature polarized polycarbonate lenses and include a case or pouch for storage and protection. Grandma will love the oversized look and the glare-reducing quality of the lenses.

What we dislike: They may not fit the shape of her face.

Best high-end earrings

Cultured Freshwater Pearl Drop Earrings: available at Macy's

Our take: Elegant and light pearl earrings; the perfect earrings for Grandma.

What we like: These classy earrings are available in white, yellow and rose gold and both contain a 9-millimeter freshwater pearl. The earrings are lightweight, so they won't weigh down her earlobes. The drop length is about 1 inch.

What we dislike: The earrings are not very big.

Best high-end pot

Le Creuset Eiffel Tower Casserole: available at Sur La Table


Our take: Limited-edition Le Creuset casserole dish embossed with the Eiffel Tower.


What we like: Le Creuset is known as a heavy hitter in the cook and bakeware world, and this casserole dish is no exception. Grandma can continue to cook your favorites in this chip- and crack-resistant pan. Cast-iron pans cook evenly on all manner of stoves, and even in the oven.

What we dislike: Although it is a Le Creuset, it's hard to swallow the price tag.

Best high-end candle

Lafco New York Sea & Dune Beach House 3-Wick Candle: available at Macy's

Our take: This is a three-wick soy wax candle in a stunning hand-blown glass holder.

What we like: With hints of lemon, seagrass, blue lotus and warm amber, this candle will transport you to the beachside vacation you used to take with Grandma when you were little. Each candle is hand-poured into a specially-made glass vessel. The candle will burn for approximately 120 hours.

What we dislike: The candle has a very strong scent.

Best high-end slippers

Sorel Go Coffee Run Slippers: available at Macy's

Our take: Grandma can use these trusty fur-topped Sorel slippers inside or outside.

What we like: The slippers feature a durable rubber sole and a cushioned insole. The exterior is made from suede and the faux-fur trim will keep Grandma's feet extra warm. With your choice of four colors and sizes 5-11, you'll be sure to find the perfect fit for her.

What we dislike: The fur tends to shed.
