While you’re shopping for friends and family this holiday season, it’s important to treat yourself, as well — even if it’s just to a Peppermint Mocha. There’s another affordable way folks are gifting themselves this holiday season, as evident by some eye-catching unboxing videos on TikTok. They’re buying the “cheapest” products at Chanel for the moment of luxury that costs less than $50. Because unfortunately, not many of us can afford to buy overselves a handbag worth thousands of dollars.
It’s not just the unboxing moment, of course. When you buy something small at Chanel, it still comes in beautiful packaging with a heavy box and bag. Many items also come with a few free samples that are perfect for traveling. It’s all about giving yourself that moment to feel fancy without actually spending more than you can safely afford.
TikToker @sharmaineclopez bought the Le Recourbe Cils De Chanel Eyelash Curler ($30 at Chanel) and Le Volume De Chanel Mascara ($32 at Chanel) as a set and got a free red Chanel pouch. She also got three perfume samples, two skincare samples and a black dust bag. It’s such a great deal, she bought a few sets for family and friends.
TikToker @steffieinthecity bought Papier Matifiant De Chanel Blotting Papers ($35 at Chanel) and got a free mirror, while @itsmemarinaa got the Miroir Double Facettes Mirror Duo ($42 at Chanel) and scored a fragrance and skincare sample. I could go on and on because these are so fun to watch. Instead, I’m rounding up some of my favorite Chanel items under $50 for your own fancy moment. You deserve it.
