    27 Nice Things Under $20, Because You Deserve Life's Little Pleasures

    Go ahead. Give yourself a much-needed gift.

    1. A pretty peach mug that'll remind you how great you are every time you take a sip of your beverage — because the best kind of caffeine is the kind that compliments you 🥰. It has a large handle and a wide bowl, so you can have ALL the coffee.

    2. A set of oh-so chic rose gold reusable straws that'll cut down on environmental waste and upgrade the look of your drink. It'll make your next cold brew or green juice totally 'gram worthy.

    3. A book that teaches calligraphy, since you might as well learn a new skill that's both functional and super pleasing. Surprise your friends and family with some handwritten letters, because who doesn't love getting a fun surprise in the mail?

    4. An art print that's a gentle reminder about what's actually important in life when you're feeling a lil' overwhelmed with the world. Call your mom while you're at it too, OK?

    5. A book sleeve that'll protect all your precious books from getting scuffed up, torn, or scratched in your purse or backpack. One reviewer says that the sleeve can hold up to three books, so you can carry a few of your favourites with you at all times.

    6. A candle that'll make you want to rock out to some classics (calling all Radiohead fans!) as your space fills with the smell of leather and oak moss. The fun ceramic holder will brighten up your desk or coffee table, and can be used as decor even when the candle is finished.

    7. A Morphe palette with nine beyond creamy, super-blendable shades that'll add a pretty pop of colour to your eyes. There are five mattes and four shimmering shades that look great on their own, or layered on each other for an extra bit of oomph.

    8. A holographic face and cheek palette that'll give you a glow that can be seen from space. Just pop the matte blush anywhere on your face and top it with a shimmery highlight for the ultimate dramatic ~lewk.~

    9. And a makeup setting spray that'll keep that look in place all day. This little mist has aloe vera and green lentil extract, which keeps your face shine-free. Say goodbye to your eyeliner smearing halfway across your face by 3 p.m.

    10. A caffeine solution that'll get rid of dark under-eye circles and puffiness if you had a rager (or a good cry!) the night before. This vegan serum works on all skin types, and has no parabens or sulphates, so you can feel good about what you're putting on the sensitive eye area.

    11. A variety pack of scrunchies, because if you don't have a hair tie on your wrist, at your desk, in your purse, and on your kitchen counter, what are you even doing?! This pretty collection has satin, velvet, and metallic scrunchies, so you'll always have something to match your look.

    12. A pair of heart earrings that'll add a little bit of glam to your everyday look. One reviewer says they're elegant, but fun, and look much more expensive than they actually are.

    13. A reusable tote bag that's perfect for running errands or doing groceries. It can hold up to 30 pounds, and it folds up into a neat little square, so it's easy to toss into your purse or backpack for when you need some extra storage.

    14. A tea stick that's just so, so pretty to look at. This aesthetically pleasing little wand will brew a perfect cup every time, and add a little luxe to your day.

    15. A set of gold bobby pins that'll tame your fly-away wispies, and will look fab on every hair colour and type. The little ivory bits at the top prevent the pins from hurting your scalp, and look super cute while doing so.

    16. A scalp massager that stimulates your scalp, encourages your hair to grow, and feels like a relaxing treat. Lather up your favourite shampoo, conditioner, or serum and gently work the massager in small circles for a little spa-like moment at home.

    17. A monogram journal that'll delight any stationery lover. Treat yourself to this pretty item and write down everything you're grateful for at the moment.

    18. A lipstick that actually gives you a customized pink glimmer to perfectly complement your skin. The formula responds to your skin's pH levels (with magic, I assume) to give you your very own sparkly shade.

    19. A CBD bath bomb that'll totally relax you after a long-ass day. The formula has tons of antioxidants, as well as vitamins A, C, and E, so having a good, long soak is just what you need if you're feeling down.

    20. Or some rainbow bath dust if you're feeling a little more whimsical during your ~me~ time. This coconut-scented product will turn your tub into a pretty swirl in every colour of the rainbow for funsies.

    21. Or a rainbow necklace that'll bring a sunny touch to any outfit, and show off your pride. You can also flip it the other way around and wear it as a geometrical accent if you need something a bit more subdued.

    22. A pair of socks that'll make you smile, because llamas truly have the sweetest, silliest faces. These quirky little friends will keep your feet nice and cozy and add some love to your work-from-home look.

    23. A pair of dangly bee earrings that are sure to create a buzz. These threader bumblebees add a sweet touch to your lobes, and work for both casual and formal outfits.

    24. A creamy champagne mustard that'll add some serious punch to your next charcuterie board. It isn't too spicy, so it's perfect for those who want a bright pop of flavour, but without the heat.

    25. A sweet little faux fox planter for if you love plants, but cannot keep them alive. This sleepy little guy adds a touch of whimsy to any room, and he won't die because you forgot to water him!

    26. Or a ceramic planter that's both a cool statement piece, and a fun home for your new succulent or fern. If you don't have a green thumb, you can use it to hold office supplies — or fill it with candy!

    27. And some sparkly string lights that'll brighten up any space. They can be used indoors and outdoors, so it'll be perfect for your office, room, or your patio.
