It's not too early to start thinking about the loveliest of holidays everybody!  Valentine's Day is just around the corner and will be here before you know it.  If you are a woman, you probably already know exactly what you want for Valentine's Day.  If you are a man that has been with a woman for a while, you probably already know that women like luxury gift items the most.    Jewelry, purses, and perfume pretty much sums up the way to a woman's heart.  Today I am going to list three luxury items in each of these three categories that you can buy for $250 or less, and I'm going to tell you exactly how to get them for this cheap!

If you have been reading The Makeup Equation for a while, you probably know that I am a frugal minded mama.  I love to save money!  You can read more about my tricks for saving money under my page, Saving Money.  That said, I am a woman, and I do love luxury items.  Many think it is impossible to buy luxury items for relatively cheap, but this is simply not true.  Anyone can buy authentic luxury items at a very affordable prices, they just need to know how to do it.

Today I have merged my love for saving money and luxury items together in order to list three amazing luxury items that you can buy for under $250.  These items would make epic Valentine's Day gifts for basically any woman you know.  Are you ready to learn my tricks??  Let's do this!

#cheaplouisvuitton #cheaplouisvuittonpurse

As most know, Louis Vuitton purses are not cheap.  Yes they are totally fabulous in every way and I love them, but I just can't bring myself to ask my husband to spend so much money on a single purse.  Thankfully, there are a few sites out there that sell pre-loved Louis Vuitton purses.  The term "pre-loved" just means that the purse was owned, or "loved", by someone before you get it.  Pre-loved purses are generally in very good condition and often times women sell them simply because they have received newer ones as gifts.  Here are two sites where you can get your pre-loved Louis Vuitton purses for under $250!  I have purchased Louis Vuitton purses, including the one pictured above, from these sites and was very satisfied.

1.  TheRealReal

TheRealReal sells luxury designer items that have been consigned.  They guarantee the authenticity of the designer items that they sell.  TheRealReal will give you a free $25 credit towards your first purchase when you sign up with an email address. The credit must be used within a certain number of days.  There is no minimum purchase amount required to use the $25 credit.  And here's a really great tip for shopping this company - The best time to shop TheRealReal site is late at night because there are more items available and you can find better deals.

You can join their influencer program here: Influencer Program. They also have a consignor affiliate program, meaning, you will earn money for every new consignor you refer to them.  You can learn more about their consignor program here: Consignor Affiliate Program.

2. Tradesy.

(Please note that I am not an affiliate of Tradesy, they currently don't offer an affiliate program, but they do let you refer friends with your own personal link).

Tradesy offers some of the lowest prices around for pre-loved designer bags and they are always offering flash sales on different items and categories, which is why you definitely want to sign up for email notifications.  When you sign up for their newsletter with an email address, they will give you a FREE $50 credit towards any $400 purchase.  If you don't want to spend $400 but still want a discount, just use my link for $20 OFF any purchase of $50 or more!

Just like The RealReal, Tradesy guarantees the authenticity of their items, which is huge in my book!  I bought the Louis Vuitton Monogram Shoulder Bag pictured above from this particular seller on Tradesy and had a great experience:  TheBagriculture.

 12 TCW Round and Baguette Cut CZ Dome Ring Platinum

19.57 TCW Emerald Cut CZ Halo Ring Platinum

I don't know any woman on the planet that doesn't appreciate a new sparkler every now and then.  The technology has gotten so good that it can be very hard to tell a real diamond from a fake these days!  Obviously I don't have the money to buy a diamond the size of the ones shown in my pictures above, but nobody needs to know that!  I love to wear these gorgeous cocktail rings when I travel or go shopping.  I really love the unique pieces I found that I feature in the pictures.  Both of these rings are still in stock and can be purchased here:  12 TCW Dome Ring Platinum (available in sizes 5-10) and  19.57 TCW Halo Ring in Platinum (available in sizes 6-10) .  

For reference to help you with sizing, I wear a size 5 on my ring finger on my left hand and a size 5.5 on my ring finger on the right hand.  They didn't have a size 5 in the 19.57 TCW Emerald Cut Halo Ring in Platinum but it was so beautiful I bought it anyway in a size 6 and it fits fine on my bigger right hand.  

As you can see, these rings are all under $250.  Something I absolutely love about Palm Beach Jewelry  is that they offer big flash sales constantly and even frequently offer free gift items with any purchase.  Shipping is also almost always FREE, which is really big for me.  To learn how to save lots of money and get free buyer protection when shopping from Palm Beach Jewelry, see my post, PalmBeach Jewelry Shopping Hacks Plus 5 Stunning Big Bling Jewelry Pieces
