  • Luxury brands sell far more than expensive handbags and high-end clothes.
  • Brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany & Co. sell a variety of every day objects for hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars.
  • Some of the most surprisingly expensive items include $1,650 Lego blocks from Tiffany & Co. and a $590 candle from Versace.

When it comes to shopping for everyday household items, people tend to stick to department stores and online sites in order to find the lowest prices.

Target, for example, recently launched a private-label toiletries brand with items under $2, and Walmart is now offering free two-day shipping on millions of necessities.

But for those looking to splurge, many of these same everyday items can be purchased from some of fashion’s biggest names. Brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tiffany & Co. sell a variety of household goods in addition to clothes and accessories.

Below, we’ve rounded up 24 expensive everyday items sold by high-end designers.
