What he/she really wants

You might be thinking “Why should I buy something pre-owned as a gift?” and that’s why

this article will break down all the reasons why YOU SHOULD.

1. Finding that rare sold-out or discontinued item that isn’t readily available in stores.

Because your special someone is rare just like that bag, right?! And preloved doesn’t

have to mean in used or poor condition. There are new to pristine to excellent

condition items that are available on the resale or consignment market that still allow

you to score an amazing find.

2. Save money on luxury when you shop pre-owned. You can still give the gift of luxury

all while saving hundreds to thousands of dollars off retail price. That extra savings

could be put towards the overall packaging with some flowers or a matching small

accessory, a beautiful date night, a spa date, a night out on the town, or get something

for yourself! It’s always the thought that counts not about how much you spend. If

your partner loves luxury you can still give the gift of luxury without breaking the


3. Getting her the Hermes dream bag without the wait and pre-spend at the Hermes

boutiques. A lot of clients now are turning more towards the secondary resale market

where they can source their Hermes Birkin or Kelly in the exact color and hardware

they were looking for instead of waiting and wishful hoping their Hermes sales

associate will contact them with a quote on a bag. We have helped our clients find their

dream Hermes bag without the headache.

4. Investing in a quality gift. Luxury items are renowned for their exceptional

craftsmanship and durability. By choosing a luxury consignment gift, you’re not only

gifting a beautiful item but also an investment in quality. These designer pieces are

built to last, becoming cherished possessions that stand the test of time and certain

brands are also an investment that appreciate in value.

Now that we’ve covered why you may want to consider giving the

gift of preloved luxury, let’s figure out what would be the most

suitable gift for that person.

Are There Specific Items on Their Wishlist?

● Have they mentioned any specific luxury items they’ve been eyeing or


● Are there items they’ve saved on social media or online shopping platforms?

What is their Style Preference?

● Does your partner lean towards classic, modern, vintage, or eclectic styles?

● Are they more inclined towards minimalist or extravagant designs?

● What colors and patterns dominate their wardrobe or accessories?

● Which designer brands do they admire?

● Are there specific designer brands your partner frequently mentions or


● Do they have a favorite fashion house or designer known for a particular


Consider Their Lifestyle:

● What is their daily routine, and how can a luxury item complement their


● Is the gift suitable for everyday use or reserved for special occasions?

Consider Their Collection:

● Take a look at their existing collection of accessories, bags, or jewelry. What

seems to be missing, or what could complement their current items?

Recommended Valentines Day gift based on their horoscope:

Aries (March 21 – April 19):

● Style: Bold and confident

● Designer Bag: A structured and statement-making bag, perhaps in a

vibrant color or with bold patterns. Aries individuals love to stand out,

so a bag that makes a strong impression would be ideal.

An example would be this Chanel python boy bag in a bold red to

match their boldness and even the material is rare because an Aries

loves to stand out and not fit in with the crowd so a typical normal

leather would not cut it for our Aries.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20):

● Style: Timeless and elegant

● Designer Bag: A classic, high-quality leather bag that exudes luxury and

durability. Taurus individuals appreciate timeless pieces that can

withstand the test of time and changing trends.

An example would be this Chanel classic medium flap in the popular

beige claire because the Taurus most likely has all their bags in classic

blacks because they appreciate something they can wear throughout

the years and because it’s in caviar leather makes it all that more

appealing for the Taurus’s need for durability.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20):

● Style: Versatile and eclectic

● Designer Bag: A convertible bag with multiple ways to wear it, reflecting

Gemini’s versatile personality. A bag with playful details or

mix-and-match elements would also suit their eclectic taste.

An example would be this vintage Chanel double sided flap that has

the front flap look on both sides which truly resembles the Gemini’s

multi personality. Gemini’s can appreciate a versatile bag such as the

black classic flap in durable patent leather not to mention 24kt gold

plated hardware with the 2 front flaps on both sides is technically a

Gemini in a bag!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22):

● Style: Feminine and sentimental

● Designer Bag: A soft and romantic bag with a touch of nostalgia.

Cancer individuals may appreciate a bag with sentimental value or one

that reflects their nurturing and caring nature.

An example of the perfect bag for a Cancer would be this Lady Dior in

beautiful soft pink to tie in that feminine touch but a Cancer appreciates

sentimental value so adding custom charms to the Lady Dior strap

would be ideal to sweep a Cancer off their feet!

Leo (July 23 – August 22):

● Style: Glamorous and attention-grabbing

● Designer Bag: A bold and luxurious statement piece with metallic

accents or embellishments. Leos loves to be in the spotlight, a bag

that turns heads would be fitting for their confident style.

An example of a show-stopping bag for Leo would be this limited

edition Louis Vuitton Capucines BB in a beautiful purple with gold studs

and detailing on the front. Leo always makes a statement therefore

their bags need to embody their main character vibe. A classic black

bag will just not do for our Leo.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22):

● Style: Practical and polished

● Designer Bag: A well-organized and structured bag with clean lines.

Virgos appreciate functionality and a polished look, so a bag that

complements their practical nature would be a great choice.

An example of the perfect bag for our Virgo is this Chanel Deauville

pearl tote in a clean cream beige. The interior pockets with clasp to

attach detachable pouches will make any Virgo happy! They need a

bag that is practical and can be worn multiple different ways such as

this Deauville tote with the handles and the longer shoulder strap


Libra (September 23 – October 22):

● Style: Elegant and balanced

● Designer Bag: A stylish and well-proportioned bag that complements

their sense of balance and harmony. Libras appreciate beauty and

aesthetics, so a bag with graceful design elements would suit their

taste. An example of a bag that a Libra would love is this Saint Laurent Sac

De Jour because the libra often times loves quieter luxury over loud

luxury with logos and prints all over. The Sac De Jour is a balanced

style that has just the right amount of branding but overall offers a

sleek clean look.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):

● Style: Mysterious and bold

● Designer Bag: A sleek and edgy bag with dark hues or unique textures.

Scorpios are drawn to the mysterious, so a bag that adds an element of

intrigue to their style would be appealing.

An example of a bag for our mysterious Scorpio is this Lady Dior in

patent so black. Anything black on black to tie in their edgy mysterious

personality because you truly know what Scorpio is thinking. The

shiny patent leather still allows that sleek edgy style of the Scorpio to

come through in a bag.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):

● Style: Adventurous and casual

● Designer Bag: A practical yet stylish backpack or a versatile crossbody

bag. Sagittarians value freedom and adventure, so a bag that can keep

up with their on-the-go lifestyle would be ideal.

An example of a bag for our Sagittarius is this brand new Hermes

Videpoches or the Louis Vuitton pochette metis (if they don’t

already have it) because Sagittarius is always looking for their

next adventure or spontaneous trip and need a bag that is

comfortable and ready to go. Ready to go in STYLE!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):

● Style: Classic and refined

● Designer Bag: A timeless and structured bag in neutral tones.

Capricorns appreciate quality and enduring style, so a bag that aligns

with their classic taste would be well-received.

An example of the perfect bag for our Capricorn needs to be a little

more expensive because they are one of the most hardworking signs.

They can afford the finer things in life because they have worked for it

so the Hermes Constance wallet to go in classic black epsom with gold

hardware is a gift we are certain they will treasure due to its durability,

structure, and timeless design.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):

● Style: Quirky and unconventional

● Designer Bag: A unique, avant-garde bag with unconventional shapes

or materials. Aquarians love to express their individuality, so a bag that

stands out from the crowd would resonate with their eccentric style.

An example of a bag for our Aquarius is the Dior Saddle given it’s

abnormal shape for a bag because Aquarians are one of a kind. They

don’t think like the rest so why should their bag look like the rest?

Pisces (February 19 – March 20):

● Style: Dreamy and romantic

● Designer Bag: A whimsical and artistic bag with soft colors and flowing

shapes. Pisceans appreciate a touch of fantasy in their style, so a bag

that reflects their dreamy nature would be a lovely choice.

An example of a bag that our Pisces would like is the Gucci Dionysus

but not in the classic print. This fairytale-like floral blossom print that is

limited edition and no longer available in stores.
