    1. A roll of marble contact paper for a high-end look without the high-end price tag. Use it on outdated kitchen countertops, an old bathroom vanity, or a piece of furniture that could use a little bit of sprucing up — you'll be amazed at how expensive they'll look when you're done.

    2. A set of plastic canisters that'll make regular cotton balls and Q-tips look oh-so-stylish. The set includes three different-size canisters and will add such an elegant touch to your bathroom vanity or shelves.

    3. A five-tier ladder bookshelf one reviewer said looks "so chic and far more expensive" than it actually is. If you've been eyeing a similar one at a pricey designer furniture store, get the same look for a fraction of the cost with this industrial-style Amazon find.

    4. A 6-quart Dutch oven just like the fancy French version but won't cost your monthly groceries' worth. It has over 27,000 5-star reviewers and one reviewer even said, "it works like those expensive name brands that are too expensive to buy." Get those Julia Child cookbooks out, it's time to make some coq au vin.

    5. A mid-century style nightstand so you can give your bedroom a makeover without having stressful nightmares about the state of your bank account every night thereafter. For under $100, this nightstand totally delivers — it has a beautiful walnut finish and a drawer where you can stash all that unsightly clutter.

    6. A set of four wineglasses that'll make a two-buck Chuck taste like a prized vintage bottle. The thin glass and modern shape give these such a sophisticated look and feel, so if you're a wannabe sommelier (or just really like your wine), add these to your it's-5 p.m.-somewhere routine.

    7. A dust ruffle to dress up your bed and hide all that clutter that may or may not be underneath it. It's easy to put on, looks super elegant, and is a simple way to give your room a high-end boutique hotel look for just over $10.

    8. A set of nesting tables giving cool Scandinavian designer vibes and are the perfect size for a small apartment. Reviewers love them for how easy they are to assemble, how sturdy they are, and as one pointed out, because "the design makes it look expensive" yet it's under $50. Score.

    9. A full-length mirror with a removable floor stand so you can get good OOTD pics and bounce some light around the room. It comes in a bunch of finishes as well as other sizes and would look great in a bedroom or an entryway for that last minute nothing-in-your-teeth check before you leave the house.

    10. A set of under-cabinet light strips for a cheap way to update your kitchen and give it such a sleek, contemporary vibe. There's no difficult wiring or installation needed, and you can use a remote to control the brightness as well as program an automatic shutoff.

    11. A chic acrylic tray to corral all the stuff that seems to pile up on the coffee table every. single. day. You may have seen these acrylic trays around but were put off by their price — this one is a total steal! *Adds to cart*

    12. A set of three remote-operated flameless candles that'll instantly elevate the state of your coffee table. Plus you won't have to constantly replace these candles, they're battery-operated and last for up to 150 hours when they're lit, which is a whole lot of ambient lighting.

    13. A set of six marble coasters with a gold stripe detail because there's nothing more classic or timeless than marble. The gold accent gives them such a sophisticated look and they'll definitely look way fancier than the old cardstock ones the pizza shop gave you years ago (and you still use).

    14. A 48-piece matte black silverware set that's as good for everyday meals as it is for special holiday dinners. The matte black finish gives these a modern edge and you seriously can't beat the price for how stylish they'll make your table look.

    15. A textured ceramic vase for your weekly flower purchase that seriously looks like a handmade artisanal piece. The unique shape and beautiful texture gives it that one-of-a-kind feel and it'll look stunning in your home whether it's empty or filled with blooming hydrangeas.

    16. A set of two soap dispenser bottles to make you feel like you're at a gorgeous hotel every time you wash your hands. The set will pay for itself in no time, and you'll always have beautiful coordinating bottles on your vanity; it's the little things in life.

    17. A set of four bath towels that'll make you feel like you're at a luxurious spa every single time you get out of the shower. There's nothing more luxe than a super soft, plush towel (or just having towels that match) and this set delivers all that and more.

    18. A wooden charcuterie board with two ceramic trays and six serving forks here to make a great centerpiece for your next party. Make an elaborate cheeseboard, use it for a summer s'mores night, or pack it with all your favorite candy for the sweetest movie night in.

    19. A stylish stainless-steel French press so you can brunch in style in the comfort of your own home. You'll seriously feel like your room service just arrived, because this pot looks so incredibly chic, yet costs less than what you spent on yesterday's coffee and bagel breakfast.

    20. A hand-blown decanter to take happy hour to the next level. Impress your guests and look like you seriously know your stuff with this beautiful decanter that allows the wine to aerate and release its natural aroma. Yep, you're totally living the fancy life.

    21. A round storage ottoman with a tufted detail that makes it look way more expensive than it actually is. It's a great decorative accent and a comfy place to put your feet on, but also a great spot to hide random clutter that you don't really feel like cleaning up.

    22. An essential oil diffuser that'll not just look great on your end table but also fill your home with a calming or energizing scent, depending on your mood. The wood grain design elevates it from just a cheap-looking gadget to a stylish accessory you won't believe costs what it does.

    23. A bamboo sheet set so soft and comfortable, you'll wonder how you'll ever get up in the morning. It includes a flat and fitted sheet and pillowcases, comes in 41 different colors (!!!) and one shopper said, "they feel like expensive high-end sheets and yet the price is incredible." Need, now!

    24. A stylish pendant light to upgrade that dusty old light you've been meaning to get rid of forever. You can hang it on its own above a dining table or use a couple in a kitchen, it's super versatile and looks stunning while saving you tons of money.

    25. A vintage-style runner rug that looks like something you picked up on your faraway travels and painstakingly brought back home. The faded design gives it that cozy, lived-in feel that'll bring warmth into your home and make your feet happy to get a break from those cold hardwood floors.
