    34 Inexpensive Things That Make Life A Whole Lot More Luxurious

    If you have $10 or $20 burning a hole in your pocket, let me introduce you to some of my favorite things.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A sparkly geode bath bomb sure to *rock* your time in the tub. Add a bath caddy and an iPad queued up with Netflix and three hours will pass before you even know it.

    2. A personalized stationery set so you can stop writing thank-you notes/letters/whatever snail mail you've got going out on 8 x 11 printer paper and feel like a straight-up socialite instead.

    3. A fluffy area rug that will have you kicking off socks and slippers so you can bury your toes in the plush faux fur.

    4. An ~affordable~ candle subscription because there's just nothing as gratifying as a guest saying "OMG it smells so good in here!" the second they walk through the door.

    5. A tiny lil' humidifier/essential oil diffuser that not only provides a constant stream of hydrating mist, but will have your home smelling like a 5-star hotel as soon as you add your essential oil of choice.

    The pink, white, and blue oil diffusers which are house shaped

    6. Or, if you're looking for something that leans more decor than appliance, a macrame rainbow diffuser you can saturate with three to four drops of your preferred essential oil and then hang wherever your heart desires.

    7. A premium Compartés chocolate bar for those days when eating a handful of chocolate chips (straight from the bag in your fridge) just won't cut it.

    8. A deceivingly affordable faux fur throw you can cuddle up underneath when the world is just too much to bear. (Recently, this seems to be every day).

    9. A Yes Plz Coffee subscription so you can get new beans delivered straight to your door every week (or other week, or once a month — you get it). Specialty coffee and I don't have to walk anywhere to get it? Sign me up.

    10. Or, if tea is more your speed, a Simplicity Tea subscription so you can try out two new fancy shmancy loose-leafs every month.

    Four tubes of tea: lemon cloud, romance, hazelnut cinnamon, and mango mate

    11. A polka-dotted spa headband poised and ready to tuck back flyaways while you apply makeup or your morning serum. You may not have your own MUA, but this plush accessory will refine your entire routine.

    12. A handheld milk frother with a faux wood or marble finish that does cartwheels around its plain plastic competitors. No moving this gadget out of frame when you take an aesthetic IG shot!

    13. A plug-in wall sconce so you don't have to use your cellphone flashlight to find the remote that's lost in your duvet for the fifth time tonight. Plus, it doesn't require any electrical work! Just plug it in and you're good to go.

    14. A set of seven K-beauty sheet masks which will hydrate your skin and give you a glow so good, you'll spend an hour taking selfies.

    15. Or, if you prefer mud masks, an ultra-soft brush capable of making at-home applications a spa-like affair. For an even more indulgent experience, see if you can convince your S.O./roommate/ younger sibling to apply it for you. (In my experience, a one-dollar bill helps sway the latter.)

    16. A matching pour-over set that looks like the sun is wearing a speckled top hat. Making coffee with a plain white pour-over = boring. Making coffee with a celestial set = decadent.

    17. A jade roller and gua sha so you can give your skin a little TLC. Toning action, lymphatic drainage, and (boosted) collagen production — that is.

    18. A pair of amber soap dispensers because nothing makes me feel richer than a label-less bottle of hand soap (even if they're just filled with Dial).

    19. A custom wooden bath caddy so you can stop perilously balancing all your essentials on the edge of the tub. No more losing your glass of wine because you accidentally elbowed it while adding more hot water!

    20. A frilly oversized scrunchie that'll have you postponing wash day because your messy bun has never looked better. If turning limp or greasy locks into a compliment-magnet isn't a win, I don't know what is!

    21. A silicone scalp massager so you can treat your noggin to a salon-worthy massage right at home. The tool can also help get rid of dandruff so you can spend less time worrying about it accumulating all over your dark sweater.

    22. A two-pack of satin pillowcases that are so freaking silky, you'll want to rub your face all over them. Guess I should also mention that they can help reduce hair breakage and prevent facial wrinkles, too.

    23. A two-piece monotone loungewear set to have you feelin' like an IG influencer despite the fact that you notoriously hate avocado toast.

    24. An anti-breakage hair mask packed with argan oil, keratin, caffeine, and ginseng which is to your hair as spinach is to Popeye the Sailor Man. Basically, it'll leave your locks hydrated, voluminous, and a helluva lot stronger.

    25. A personal humidifier + planter combo that's small enough to secure a place on your desk. Plus, its sheer existence will cheer you up during midday Zoom calls.

    26. A set of resin barrettes you can mix and match or wear all at once if you have a whole lotta hair. Turns out these are all you need to craft a head-turning hairstyle.

    27. A contoured sleep mask because there's no greater travesty than natural light waking you up before your alarm goes off. With a little more shut eye, you can also prolong the dream you're having in which you're house-hunting in the Hollywood Hills.

    28. A Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer that makes blow drying a legitimate breeze and leaves you with a fresh-from-the-stylist's-chair 'do.

    29. An aesthetic desk mat guaranteed to take your "WFH life" IG stories to the next level and prevent coffee rings ('cause you never seem to have a coaster handy).

    30. A roll of faux marble contact paper ready to breathe new life into tired tiles or scratched and stained vanities for just ten bucks.

    31. A set of sumptuous velvet throw pillow covers because you've been spending a lot of time on the couch lately and could use something cozier.

    32. An Echo Dot with the ability to play music, tell you the weather, and — ~danger warning~ — order things straight from Amazon so you don't even have to lift a finger.

    33. A set of colorful catchall trays that will take your miscellaneous pile of junk — you know, spare change, chapstick tubes, keys to unknown doors — and give it a real place to call home. That way, it won't be the first thing that catches your eye when you walk into an otherwise clean room.

    34. And five for $25 undies at Aerie because real adults know there's nothing better than cute new drawers that are also on sale.

    Me @ everyone else with a newfound loungewear + eye mask obsession.
