31 Inexpensive Luxuries You Should 100% Treat Yourself To

Because you've earned it. (P.S.: nothing here is more than $25!)

Posted on

1. A two-piece velvet bra and undies set so you can walk around your apartment feeling like a glamorous old-fashioned movie star.

Villy / Amazon / Via amazon.com

With a high-waisted fit and lace trim, these look way more expensive than they actually are.

Get the set from Amazon for $6.59+. Available in two colors.

Promising review: "This is super cute and comfortable. Would order again, seems v well-made for the price." —Clare

2. A canister of Cadbury drinking chocolate imported from the UK, because as Remus Lupin knows, chocolate has fantastic, mood-enhancing properties.

Cadbury / Amazon / Via amazon.com\

Unlike the packets of hot chocolate at your local grocery store, this drinking chocolate is smooth and creamy, not watered down. Just add warm milk and cozy on up!

Get it from Amazon for $9.44 or World Market for $7.99.

Promising review: "We've had this product before, but this is our first time ordering from Amazon at a terrific price — including shipping from UK. This is the absolute best hot chocolate drink — don't waste your money on the commercial brands sold in the supermarkets. Again, absolutely fantastic." —P. Dytrych

3. An illustrated print of the incomparable Sonja Tremont Morgan reclining in bed, watching TV and wearing a tiara; now you, too, can be inspired by this iconic scene from RHONY.

thesmashshop / Etsy / Via etsy.com

Get it from The Smash Shop on Etsy for $15.

Promising review: "Lived up to my expectations! Well made and professional looking. Gave it to a friend for her birthday and she loved it! I recommend for any Bravoholic." —Jesskasp

4. A faux suede baseball cap so you can look effortlessly cool, even when you haven't washed you hair in...a while.

Joowen / Amazon / Via amazon.com

It's super soft, so you'll want to touch it all the time.

Get it from Amazon for $11.29. Available in 15 colors.

Promising review: "I've been seeing these hats everywhere and for high prices, but this one fits perfectly, is stylish, and the quality is fantastic. I highly recommend. I will probably purchase another color in the near future." —Haha

5. A variety pack of 15 different Innisfree sheet masks to transform your couch or bed into a mini spa. They'll hydrate and soothe without making sensitive skin flare up.

Innisfree / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Each mask is infused with different ingredients (aloe, green tea, blackberry, manuka honey, etc.). Once you settle on your favorite kinds, just head to Innisfree's Amazon page to restock those!

Get a variety pack of 15 masks from Amazon for $15.10.

Promising review: "These sheet masks are so great for relaxing after a long day. The fabric is extremely soft, and each mask is filled with more than enough essence for the face. I have been using these masks for months, and I have never been disappointed with the quality. They adhere well to the contours of the face, while some of the other masks I tried before fall off easily. My skin is quite sensitive, but none of these masks have made my skin break out or itch. My face always feels softer and much more supple in the morning after I use these masks before bed." —Alison Lee

7. A set of metallic ballpoint pens shaped like feathers for all the aesthetics of a quill with none of the annoying ink dipping.

VESNIBA / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Get a set of four colors (randomly selected from their stock) from Amazon for $1.55.

Promising review: "Cutest pens and they write super smooth! I might even order more! Definitely recommend!" —Tyler Lewitzke

8. A stylish circular fanny pack made of silver satin, because your arms and shoulders deserve a dang rest from holding your bag all the time!

American Eagle Outfitters / Via anrdoezrs.net

The easiest way to get that "off-duty model" look — just read the bag.

Get it from American Eagle for $19.95.

9. A super soft robe with textured, contrasted cuffs and collar to give serious smoking jacket/dressing gown vibes.

Love This Robe / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Real talk, there is nothing better than taking your clothes off at the end of the day or when you get out of the shower and lounging in a robe. Personally, I call it robe o'clock, and it is the highlight of my day.

Get it from Amazon for $24.97+. Available in blue (pictured), pink, and grey.

Promising review: "I LOVE this robe! My loft has several HUGE and exposed floor to ceiling windows. To get from my bathroom to my bedroom, I have to walk through three other rooms with these huge open windows. I needed something that was quick to put on to cover myself up when stumbling out of bed sans pants and bloodshot eyed in the middle of the night. This is very thick, super soft (feels like a bunny), very nice steel blue/grey, and fast to put on. BONUS: It actually looks nicer in person than in the picture, it looks a lot like a real dressing gown rather than a dingy bathrobe. So if I'm getting ready at my place with friends or have company spending the night, this is nice enough to wear in front of other people without looking sloppy. I think I will buy another for my boyfriend's mother, it is definitely gift-giving quality!" —Autumn

And if you're looking for a shorter version, this super-plush robe with a mermaid-style scale print is a great option!.

10. A pair of two-tone socks with a knit outside and a fluffy lining, just like you: put-together on the outside and cozy on the inside.

Urban Outfitters / Via anrdoezrs.net

The perfect way to inject a little extra comfort into your work ensemble, without having to stuff enormously fluffy socks into your shoes.

Get them from Urban Outfitters for $14 (or two pairs for $20). Available in five colors.

11. A pair of ombre tassel earrings to make a ~sweeping~ style statement for under $10.

L-Unique Jewelry / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Get them from Amazon for $9.99. Available in four colors plus two other earring styles.

Promising review: "I've only worn these once, but I received numerous compliments. They're full and don't look flimsy, but they aren't overwhelming either. I have exceptionally sensitive ears — I can't even wear some name-brand, fairly expensive earrings without irritation that lasts days/weeks. I gave these a quick coat of clear top coat nail polish on the fishhook and didn't have any problems! The colors are true to what's displayed and they're a decent length without looking overdone. I would recommend these, especially for the price!" —Littleluce

12. A 600-thread count, natural silk pillowcase that'll feel so unbelievably smooth and cool against your face, you'll feel like you're spending every night at a five-star resort.

ALASKA BEAR / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Plus, sleeping on silk pillowcases help keep your hair frizz-free (especially if you have curly hair), and they don't tug on your skin in the night (bye bye, wrinkles)!

Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ each. Available in six pillow sizes and 36 colors and patterns.

Promising review: "I have been using this pillowcase for two weeks. The fabric is so smooth and silky and feels cool on my face. I like the zippered end and the zipper is mostly hidden, so it doesn't click against the headboard of the bed. It definitely helps prevent morning face wrinkles and keeps my shoulder length hair from looking too crazy. I washed it with my sheets but put it in a net laundry bag and air dried it. It came out fine. I don't think I can ever go back to a regular cotton pillowcase after using this." —J. Kay

13. A set of essential oil-infused bath bombs, each with a different happy hour-inspired scent: pomegranate champagne, margarita, blue Hawaiian, blackberry cabernet, mojito, and piña colada.

Home Eco / Amazon / Via amazon.com

What they *do* have: coconut oil and cocoa butter.

What they *don't* have: parabens or phthalates.

Get the set of six extra large bath bombs from Amazon for $22.95.

Promising review: "Bought this for myself and was pleasantly surprised at the high-quality this was made (both packaging and product.). It smells HEAVENLY. It truly delivers as advertised. So relaxing and made my skin soft. Highly recommend this also as a gift — I bought this for a friend's birthday and she LOVES it now, too." —Amykellyp

14. Resin rings filled with real flower petals and gold flakes; honestly these are just so fucking gorgeous they speak for themselves. Every time you look down at your hand, you'll be like, "Damn!"

livinlovin / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Get it from livinlovin on Amazon Homemade for $24.90. Ring sizes 5-12. Available in tons of petal color options, plus versions with just gold or silver flake; check them all out here.

Promising review: "I bought this one for myself (and two others as gifts). They are all even more beautiful in person than in the pictures and were true to size. The people I gave them to as gifts loved them as well. This is easily my favorite ring now." —Jessica

15. Champagne jelly beans for when it's not quite 5 o'clock and you're in the office, but you just want to celebrate something. Even if that something is simply getting through another spreadsheet.

Jelly Belly / Amazon / Via amazon.com

You can pop this open somewhat more surreptitiously than an ~actual~ bottle of bubbly.

Get them from Amazon for $6.59, or a six-pack of individual sized containers from Jet for $18.99.

Promising review: "These are fantastic! I am a bit of a connoisseur of Jelly Belly flavors, and these are addictively delicious. Sweet, but not overly so, light fruity taste, and a nice sparkly gold color. A fun treat." —Grace E. Campbell

16. A facial brush designed by K-beauty brand CLE, because washing your face is already hard enough. With two sides (a silicone bristle head and a super soft synthetic brush head), it sucks dirt and oil out of pores and boosts circulation to keep your skin clean, clear, and softer than ever.

CLE / Urban Outfitters / Via anrdoezrs.net

And with the faceted handle and millennial pink detailing, it just happens to be really pretty, too.

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $15.

17. A mug with a gilded rim and lipstick print *already* on there, so you don't need to worry about leaving your red-lipped mark there, too.

Gift Boutique / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $25.

Promising review: "LOVE my mug! It's so pretty and delicate, and it adds some chic to your tea or coffee. Someone said the mug is too small.... It's a normal sized mug, not a large one, lol. It's nice and light because it's bone china. Absolutely love the gold lipstick stain! Bought two more for my girlfriends." —DW

18. Tinted lip balms infused with jojoba oil, coconut oil, and aloe extract to keep your pout looking perfect. It doesn't hurt that they're packaged beautifully, featuring prints by UK designer Sarah Bagshaw.

Anthropologie / Via anthropologie.com

Get them from Anthropologie for $5.95 each (originally $9 each). Available in three colors.

Also available in gorgeously-packaged lipsticks for $8.95 each.

19. A natural wax candle featuring any of 19 beautiful, grown-up scents to make your whole home smell ahh-mazing.

Aquiesse / Amazon / Via amazon.com

They each have a 100-hour burn time! The textured black containers are sleek and stylish, too — and the candle lids also function as a stand to sit them on!

Get them from Amazon for $24 each. Available in 19 scents.

Promising review: (for the Luxe Linen scent) "This candle is absolutely the bomb. It smells like nothing I've ever smelled before. I would describe it as executive, something you would find in a five-star hotel or the top floor of an executive building, extremely classy and pleasant. It is definitely worth the money; the candle is expensive, but worth it. And it burns smoothly and seems to last a long time." —T. K. Lenling

20. A four-pack of just-rough-enough exfoliating gloves to take your next shower or bath to a whole new level of smoooooth. Good luck not stroking your newly-soft skin all day long.

Linda / Amazon / Via amazon.com

Look at this lady's face; you know she's thinking "Oh you *wish* your skin was as soft as mine!"

Get a pack of four pairs of gloves from Amazon for $7.99.

Promising review: "These gloves are fabulous, as an LMT (licensed massage therapist), I live by dry brushing and exfoliating. They are not soft, flimsy or thin. Very thick and scruffy, which is better if you're doing full body work. Oh yeah, the colors are so girly and cute." —Michelle Missy Thompson

21. A set of diamond-shaped paperclips that prove your research paper or work presentation is an actual *gem* every time you look at it.

Forever 21 / Via anrdoezrs.net

They also make great bookmarks for your current read!

Get the set of six from Forever 21 for $3.90.

22. A keychain for anyone who wishes they could have champagne at the press of a button. If you can dream it, you can do it.

Idlewild Co. / Etsy / Via etsy.com

Get it from Idlewild Co. on Etsy for $16. Also available in mint green.

Promising review: "Beautiful! Super fast shipping; I love all the items in this shop!" —Nrousseau

23. An extra large cashmere scarf that makes bundling up in the office AC or in the winter months feel significantly more luxe.

JAKY Global / Amazon / Via amazon.com

TBH, the bar set for shivering-in-cubicle glam is pretty low.

Get it from Amazon for $22.89. Available in 15 colors.

Promising review: "My surprise when it arrived and how long it is. I love it, and it is very expensive looking. I am not sure why the other people complained. It feels like cashmere, only a higher quality than most cashmere items you buy. It doesn't shed nor is it nappy. I love it and it is extremely warm for winters. I recommend this as hopefully all colors like the navy are exactly the same. I bought the navy blue. It is rich looking and suitable for a man as well." —Lisa Patrice Dale

25. A retro-inspired velvet pillow sure to make even the most basic Ikea sofa seem straight out of a period piece. Plus, it's really great to lean back against and sigh dramatically.

26. A 24K gold- and pumpkin-infused sleeping pack and sheet mask to detoxify, hydrate, and nourish your skin. Also because pumpkin spice season needs more gold in it, tbh.

@toocoolforschool / Instagram / Via instagram.com

Get the sleeping pack from Amazon for $12.99 and a pack of five sheet masks for $25.95.

Promising review: (for the sleeping pack) "This is such a good sleeping mask I can't even begin to explain it. I have dry skin overall, and it honestly helps me wake up with an amazingly hydrated and soft base for the day. I've always believed that the most amazing changes to your body happen overnight, and this mask really boosts the hydration and suppleness of your face." —SingingSeoul

27. Flower-shaped earrings with textured details, pearls, and crystals so elegant, people will swear you bought them at a high-end vintage store.

H&M / Via hm.com

They're 1 3/4" long, making them the perfect size for a statement earring.

Get them from H&M for $7.99. Also available in black.

28. A gift box of rose petal soaps perfect for giving to...yourself (duh). Sticking a few of these petals in the bath is the definition of treat yo'self, amirite?

Brompton & Langley / Amazon / Via amazon.com

And they last longer and cost less than an actual bouquet.

Get the box of soap petals from Amazon for $11.99.

30. Fuzzy flamingo slippers that'll help you ~pink~ only the loveliest thoughts while lounging around the house.

Forever 21 / Via anrdoezrs.net

Eating shrimp cocktail while wearing these is highly encouraged.

Get them from Forever 21 for $14.90. Sizes: S–L.

31. And a pair of fleece-lined leggings that will never turn sheer on your legs — because you deserve to be warm, cuddly, and, most importantly, pants-free.

90 Degree by Reflex / Amazon / Via amazon.com

They have almost 600 five-star reviews alone!

Get them from Amazon for $19.99. Sizes: XS-XL.

Promising review: "WOW! So, I have spent a fair amount of time looking for leggings that are thick enough that they don't rip right away and most importantly, ones that aren't sheer enough to see your underwear. FINALLY, I have found them. I have a couple other pairs of fleece-lined leggings, but they really aren't that great in comparison. These are super comfortable and really do the trick. I have worn them to the gym and worn them to work. They are true to size and do have lots of stretch. Highly suggest them for ladies with thicker thighs that have trouble finding leggings that aren't sheer and are comfortable/not restrictive due to how tight they are." —Lauren V.

Get another highly-rated pair of fleece-lined leggings in sizes 1X-2X from Amazon for $15.99.
