    18 Useful Things That Are Worth Splurging On

    In the iconic words of Jessie J, "Forget about the price tag!"

    1. Keep calm and carry on with this high-efficiency air purifier. It has a smart filter that removes common household allergens like pet dander, dust, and pollen from the air, so you can sleep well and breathe easy.

    3. A super-soft hair towel that soaks up water like a plant in the desert. The microfibre fabric absorbs water faster than a traditional towel and is extra gentle, so your hair is safe from breakage, split ends, and frizz.

    4. An ultra-soothing sound machine that will lull you to sleep with the perfect amount of white noise. You can customize the machine by changing the volume, tone, and pitch.

    9. A minimalist Fitbit watch that can track your heart rate, display your calendar, call, and text notifications, plus it can play over 300 songs while you work out. And if that weren’t enough, the battery can last up to four days on one charge.

    10. A high-capacity handheld steamer that gently removes wrinkles from clothing and other household fabrics like curtains and couches. It's small enough to travel with and comes with a power cord that is six-and-a-half-feet long.
