Sure, high-end cufflinks make you feel like a Master of the Universe straight out of Tom Wolfe’s Bonfire of the Vanities.

But if you are on a budget, these extremely affordable links are so quaintly elegant with their knotted texture and pattern as well as their well-crafted glass vial.

3. Wine Away 2 oz. Spray Bottle, $5.99
