    31 Splurge-Worthy Items You'll Be Glad You Bought

    Investing in long-lasting products is the smartest decision you will ever make — and these ones are well worth the splurge.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. The Mayfair Group "It Costs $0" crewneck that's a) comfortable and b) spreading the message that being a good person is absolutely free.

    The Mayfair Group

    The Mayfair Group is a woman-owned totally self-funded brand by founder and CEO Sam Abrahart. According to the brand, "our social network, made up of a 97 percent female audience, now see us as the 'big sister' voice to their younger generation. Driven by empowerment, positive messaging, inclusivity, diversity, and the motivation to open our platform to all important topics, The Mayfair Group has naturally evolved into creating our own fashion line, Mayfair The Label."

    I personally own this crew and a few other pieces from The Mayfair Group and they are WELL WORTH the price. This comfy cozy crewneck has been seen on the likes of JLo (yup, the pop queen herself), and other pieces like their "Just Be Kind" crew was recently worn by Justin Bieber.

    Get the crew from The Mayfair Group for $98 (available in two sizes).

    2. A pair of fluffy Uggs since staying cozy this winter equals a justifiable splurge for keeping your feet warm.,

    These have over 14,000 five-star reviews!

    Promising review: "These slippers are so unique and comfortable. There is a solid platform, which gives them a very different feel than any other slipper, and the strap really keeps them in place. They are so soft and funky-looking. I actually wear them outside of the house running errands and such, so they are worth the price tag for a slipper." —Helga

    Get them from Amazon for $99.95+ (available in 35 colors and sizes 5–12).

    3. A pair of PowerBeats Pro Wireless Earphones so you can stop fumbling with the dreaded headphone wire and opt for a sleek Bluetooth compatible option instead.,

    Promising review: "Fingers crossed I never have to update my review with anything negative because I am OBSESSED with these and it’s only been one day! I have not taken them out of my ears all day. They have amazing sound, better than any headphones/ear buds I have ever used before. The noise is cancelled out fairly well. I also can’t wait to wear these to workout and not worry about them falling out of my ears!" —Morgan

    Get them from Amazon for $199.95 (available in eight colors).

    4. A full Harry Potter Vinyl Set with the most aesthetically pleasing scenes from the movie series printed on the records themselves. How could you NOT Instagram these?

    Get it from FatBeats for $224.99.

    5. A pair of tie-dye lounge pants that I personally will never be taking off. I would ACTUALLY go out of the house in these and feel trendy at the same time.

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    These are hands down the softest most luxe pair of sweatpants I have ever owned and am honestly debating buying more that's how comfortable they are. They also look super cute and more "put together" then some of the many other well-loved pairs of sweats I currently own. I'm telling you, this is one purchase especially during WFH times that you won't regret at all.

    Get them from Softwear for $88 (available in sizes XS–L and six colors).

    6. Or these plush pink joggers made from a fuzzy knit that'll help you feel like you never even left your bed this morning.

    Promising review: "I purchased the green and gold jogger lounge set first. The bottoms are roomy and so cozy. The tops are sexy and warm. I loved the sets so much that I brought all four sets. I highly recommend this outfit." —Annette P.

    Get the them from Eloquii for $89.95 (available in sizes 14–28 and three colors).

    7. A light-up ☆ star ☆ projector to transform your space into a galactic dream. This may even be (dare I say it) better than looking up at the actual stars?

    Amazon via Alduzzo2,

    Promising review: "Definitely worth the money. I like that you can control the brightness to your likeness. I also like you can mix and create your own colors. Do not hesitate to get this!" —LJ

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99.

    8. A velvet accent chair because your home could always use more seating options and this one is just so gosh darn pretty., Amazon

    Promising review: "Super easy assembly, only took a minute to figure out which direction the legs go. The fabric is ridiculously soft! Very happy with my purchase, this chair feels nice and sturdy. I am happy with the back support and somewhat firm cushioning that you don't sink in to too much. It feels just right!" —Mischief

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in five colors).

    9. A touchscreen toaster with an array of cook settings that'll help you perfectly toast your waffle or English muffin., Amazon

    Promising review: "I have to say, this toaster was well worth the investment. This one beat my old toaster by mile in terms of how fast it toasts, and it adjusts easily and well to waffles and bagels. The toaster has a fantastic digital display too. I love the 10 second countdown feature so I can get my butter in place and slather it one while the toast is hot. The design is sleek and elegant, and my favorite surprise is the analog clock display. This makes my old toaster obsolete and is now collecting dust in the bottom cupboard." —Rob

    Get it from Amazon for $299.95.

    10. A bedside shelf for hosting your must-have essentials like tissues, your smart speaker, and a coaster to hold your cup of coffee. You can also use it as a work desk alternative — grab a cozy floor cushion and make yourself comfortable.


    Promising review: "I have a daybed style bed, and I’ve been keeping my phone and glasses on the floor closer in reach than the side table. I never bought a bed shelf before because all the versions I saw only clamped to your bed, and I didn’t want that because my bed frame is covered in velvet and I didn’t want it to damage it. Then I saw this one that just slides between your mattress and frame and I was all in! It came in two pieces and assembled quickly and easily with three screws. Attaching it to my bed was as simple as lifting my mattress a bit and sliding it under. It is super sturdy and looks really nice... and now all my things have a place to live within reaching distance. Love it!" —Ganesh Girl

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in two sizes and a slide option).

    11. A makeup brush UV sanitizer to disinfect your makeup brushes, because the less germs that are on your makeup brushes the better. Cleaning your makeup brushes will ensure you're less likely to spread yucky germs that can sometimes cause breakouts on the skin.,

    Promising review: "This first caught my eyes when I saw how chic and cute it is. Then I found out it actually help sanitize makeup brushes! I wear makeup regularly, but to be honest, I don't clean my brushes frequently enough. I found it kind of frustrating to clean my brushes. Not sure why but it always takes a REALLY LONG TIME for my brushes to dry. This is such a lifesaver as I know I can sanitize my brushes every time I use them with just one click! I don't have to worry about skin issues caused by dirty brushes anymore! It also makes a really good/cute gift. Very happy with this purchase." —CMC

    Get it from Amazon for $89.

    12. A mixed colored stemware set because whilst the weather is doom and gloom outside, you can bring the vibrancy inside. Ah, anyone up for a glass of Chardonnay?!

    These are made with a super soft polyester, microfiber blend.

    Promising review: "Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she loved this blanket and mentioned that it easily stretches over the shoulders and feet. Let me tell you, it does. I'm only 5' 5" so it does the trick. This blanket makes me look forward to going to sleep. It's not too warm yet you feel wrapped up in a cloud. Totally worth the money. I want another one." —Michael A. Roman

    Get it from Amazon for $180.

    14. A gold bar cart to create a unique space to display your liquors, wine glasses, and mixologist tools.

    15. A Kindle Paperwhite so you can get your reading on while snuggling by the fire or sitting in the bathtub during some well-deserved "me time." This waterproof tablet will be your new bubble bath BFF.

    A person holding the Kindle with the page very clear to see while outside by the pool

    Promising review: "This year, I am traveling to many different countries and have been reading more than I have ever been. I did not want to take physical books with me on trips for the obvious reason that it takes up space and weighs down my luggage. That’s when I decided to see about the Kindle paperwhite. Man, am I pleasantly surprised by this device. It’s compact, portable, really minimizes glare, and the backlight is phenomenal for reading in different lighting. In fact, I can now read in the dark without keeping my husband awake with a reading light." —LinaRi

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four colors, and two storage capacities).

    16. A Boxxle box wine dispenser that can hold up to three liters of wine so you don't have to waste another drop that gets stuck in the bag. Store this sleek appliance on your counter and it'll keep your vino fresh up to six weeks after you pour your first glass.

    boxxle wine dispenser used to dispense wine

    Promising review: "This little guy is so worth it! We enjoy a fair amount of boxed wine, so we almost always have a bag in the Boxxle. It really does dispense until the bag is pretty much empty, you have to see it to believe it. It looks nice on the counter, and blocks all light from getting to the bag of wine. After struggling with dispensing the last of the wine from the traditional box (seriously, there seemed to always be at least a bottle still left when we had to start the tilt, shake, tilt, shake again antics) it's pleasurable to use the Boxxle!" —Andrea W.

    Get it from Amazon for $98.99.

    17. A Lilly Pulitzer Kippa Sweater — ideal for creating an effortless outfit that only requires three things: this sweater, a pair of jeans, and your fave booties.

    Promising review: "I bought this a month or two ago and am so glad I did!! I wear it all the time. It is comfy enough to work from home but I look nice and put together for my zoom meetings! I usually wear a L or XL and the L fits me perfectly. I love it so much and hope it comes in more colors!" —C12345

    19. A 360 Cookware Sauté Pan that can transport from the stove top to the oven so you won't have to switch cooking vessels ever again. This pan also has 360 vapor cooking technology so your food cooks all the way through when the lid is on.

    360 Cookware

    This sauté pan is durable as heck. It's heavy and has a helpful lip around the perimeter of the pan so you can worry less about your meal spilling over the side. The fact that it can move from the stove to the oven has made cooking meals so much easier, especially when cooking steaks that I want to sear and then finish off cooking in the oven. I honestly feel like a top notch chef from the Food Network and can't wait to start making meals for guests again post-pandemic while using this high end pan.

    Get it from 360 Cookware for $239.

    20. A leather backpack that will be a staple in your bag collection through the years and will be able to handle carrying the overabundance of necessities you need with you at all times.

    21. A Samsung Frame that doubles as both a TV screen and a framed work of art. Fool anyone into thinking you have a gajillion-dollar Monet in your living room (and no one will know it's not the real thing...OK OK, maybe they'll know, but it still looks cool.)

    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed,

    This has been on my wishlist for some time now and now that Bridgerton has arrived how MAJOR would this look whilst watching!? BRB gonna snag before season two arrives.

    TV when it's on, art when it's off. It's designed to look like a frame, so when you aren't binge-ing your current must-watch show, it can display an array of gallery-worthy art.

    My co-worker Mal is obsessed with this and here's why:

    "This is honest and truly the best splurge I have ever made. It has massively upgraded the look in my living room. My husband loves the photography options and I love all the classical paintings – as someone who loves changing up my decor, being able to update the display images has been so fun. The quality is fantastic while watching movies and TV...but I'm pretty sure I love it as a piece of art in my home even more." —Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed Staff

    Get it from Amazon for $628.96+ (available in four colors and six sizes).

    22. A vibrating facial brush so you can get your exfoliating on without having to do much work at all. The brush will deep clean the skin with its high-frequency vibrations which equals unclogged pores! 🎉

    Mallory Mower's hand holding up the palm-sized cleansing brush. It's the shape of a flattened egg, with soft silicone bristles on both sides.
    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "Before getting this device, although I have a very strict skincare routine, I really didn’t exfoliate often enough. Now being able to gently exfoliate whilst I cleanse morning and night is so great, especially as I have been able to add this into my skincare routine without any additional time! I have super sensitive skin which gets red very easily but this device is gentle enough for me on the middle speed setting (or even higher) with no irritation. You can play around with different levels of vibration, which is great, and I find the highest level is great for massaging the forehead (also try the back for this area) and it's really relaxing!! I’ve had mine for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t run out of charge yet, so will be great for travel! Important to note that I did follow the instructions to charge mine as soon as I received it. Plus the super cute pink color looks so nice in my bathroom!" —Sophie

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available in two colors).

    23. A circular pouf to use as additional seating or as a chic foot rest for your armchair.,

    Promising review: "This pouf is perfect for our nursery! Love the color of it, and it is comfy!! I love that it will be easy to move when we aren’t using it or just want it placed somewhere else. It’s also sturdy enough to sit on. Love it!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $60.50+ (available in eight colors).

    24. A heatable foot massager since you work so hard and deserve some *me-time* after the end of a long day. It features five adjustable air pressure settings and optional heat for some toasty foot pampering.,

    Promising review: "I am a professional massage therapist and bought this product for my wife for Christmas and she absolutely loves this product. Next to a personal touch this massager is the next best thing. It comes with a timer for 15 minutes. At the end of the treatment not only are your feet relaxed but the body. It hits all the meridian trigger points in the feet to work the whole body systematically. I highly recommend this product especially for the price. It is well put together and a must have for our house." —winddancer76

    Get it from Amazon for $169.99.

I've only wore them once (all day) because here in Cali it's just too hot for JEANS, but when fall/winter rolls around I'm gonna want to wear these A LOT! They are slightly heavier in weight but still comfortable/semi soft. They fit well." —Michelle M.
