A holographic peel-off mask so you can practice ~self-care~ many more times than you would if you only bought sheet masks (this formula comes in a tub). Plus, it brightens your complexion, minimizes pores, AND hydrates, meaning you get more bang 👏 for 👏 your 👏 buck 👏 than complicated routines.
A faux shearling teddy coat because if you’re going to buy this season’s biggest trend, you should do it for cheap! It’ll go with everything, still be popular for seasons to come, and save you money. Talk about an “investment” piece.
A pour-over kettle and coffee dripper for starting your mornings on a nicer note than a rushed, $5 to-go cup. It’ll make individual cups so you don’t waste coffee grinds *and* it’ll save you money in the long run (all while tasting incredible rich).
Or! A handheld milk foamer to make café-quality cappuccinos right in your own kitchen. You’ll save money AND avoid putting pants on Sunday morning. You can’t ask for much more.
A crystal ball essential oil diffuser that’ll be your most *mesmerizing* piece of bedroom decor thanks to its holographic LED lights. *And*! It’ll help you relax, make your room smell better, and seriously help the air feel less dry as winter approaches (read: great for anyone who gets nose bleeds).
A powder mani starter kit so you can drastically reduce the amount you spend on manicures (especially if you get regular or even gel). This’ll last three to six weeks every time you use it, look professional, take 15 minutes to soak off (with water!), and won’t make your nails as weak as gel.
A Gleem electric toothbrush, because this’ll allow you to maintain your upgraded oral routine even when on vacation (it’s travel-friendly and battery-operated). Plus, it has a built-in timer to improve your brushing methods (aka remind you to move to *all* sections of your mouth). Looks and function? Take my money.

A mini beauty fridge to (according to reviewers) help organic or all-natural skincare last longer and make applying your favorite products feel so. darn. refreshing. thanks to their now cooling touch (particularly great for eye cream and masks!). Basically this is the epitome of making sure you get your money’s worth after spending $$$ on skincare.
A pair of wireless earbuds that’ll
wish cumbersome headphones adieu in favor of a high-quality, hands-free listening experience — AND is the practical choice when shopping for wireless headphones. They’re a fraction of the price of AirPods, but reviewers say they work just as well.
And! An adorable wireless earbuds case for never losing your newest tech purchase (even more important if you DO have AirPods). Basically, it’ll relieve that constant ~pit~ in your stomach that they might have gone missing.
A modern jewelry display rack that’ll double as chic decor in your bedroom, keep your necklaces from tangling, and prevent you from losing any valuable earrings. If you frequently tear through your room looking for those pearls grandma passed down, you need this.
A weighted blanket so you can finally see why everyone is *buying* into this trend. This’ll apply just enough pressure to drastically improve your sleeping habits (not to mention, this is a little more stylish than most options). Reviewers swear this helps them with anxiety, stress, and insomnia thanks to its comforting weight. Always getting a good night’s sleep = money well spent.
Or! A Buffy comforter, because this’ll make hot sleepers feel like they’re sleeping on ☁️cloud nine☁️ (seriously, this is so cloud-like). It’s made with super soft, temperature-regulating eucalyptus fiber that was designed with sweaty sleepers in mind (🙋) so you stay nice and dry ’til sunrise. If you wake up damp every morning, you KNOW this is the treat you’ve wanted your whole life.
A set of face mask brushes for upgrading your beauty routine with tools that’ll feel like h-e-a-v-e-n on your skin and prevent you from wasting product *and* from using your fingers. Why, you ask? Fingers = acne-causing bacteria. Silicone = germ-free, no breakouts.
A set of bamboo plates that’ll add a fun, pop of color to your kitchen and put an end to breaking precious kitchenware. Their sturdy, bamboo material mean even the biggest klutz won’t stand a chance in shattering these. Plus, they’re sustainable if you’re looking to be more ~eco-friendly~.
A sloth to-do pad so you can treat yo’self to inarguably the cutest lil’ helpers you can find, and add some cheer to your day-to-day (but still manage to accomplish all your tasks). These sloths won’t judge how long it takes to get some things finished, but they’re not leaving until you check everything off.
A portable personal blender, because this’ll not only *look* super fancy thanks to its stylish design, but also let you make delicious smoothies on-the-go. All you have to do is fill it before running out the door. AND it saves you money when you don’t buy $7 smoothies every day?! We are living in the year 3000.
A set of llama dishcloths for not only introducing some adorable friends to your kitchen, but saving costs on cleaning wipes, paper towels, AND sponges. They’re super durable and absorbent (they can hold ~20 times~ their weight in liquid), can be used to wash dishes, and are machine-washable up to 200 times.
A weighted sleep mask filled with lavender and flax seeds that’ll feel positively ~dreamy~ at the end of the day and help improve your sleep habits, thanks to its comforting pressure. It also helps soothe puffy eyes and relieve eye fatigue, so it’s off to snooze town before you know it.
A pair of heated corgi slippers so you can r-e-l-a-x at the end of another ~doggone~ day with some serious cuddle buddies. The best part? These’ll help save money if you hate raising the heat a lot in the name of high electric bills.
A subscription to Nuuly, because this’ll allow you to score six pieces a month from your favorite stores — Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie, Free People, and more — for less than HALF of what you spend on just one piece from these brands. Suddenly ~splurge-worthy~ feels more affordable.
An odor-eliminating candle for filling your home with cozy scents like lavender, French vanilla, and “clean laundry”, while simultaneously erasing the not-so-pleasant smells that our cats and dogs bring inside.
A Cosrx ceramide cream that’ll feel SO luxurious on your face every time you use it, thanks to its buttery formula that m-e-l-t-s onto your skin. But that’s not the best part — reviewers swear this works just as well as the costlier Dr. Jart ceramide cream by minimizing redness and soothing irritated skin. Aka you’re about to save A LOT of money if you usually trek to Sephora.
A set of wool dryer balls so you can make pesky chores a heck of a lot more entertaining — while still actually getting them done. Not only will these make your clothes irresistibly fluffy, but they won’t be afraid to guilt trip you if you neglect them by avoiding laundry day.
A fidget spinner ring because this’ll feel and look like a new stylish accessory, but come in ~handy~ whenever you start to feel stressed. This’ll help you put an end to nail-biting and cuticle-picking when you can use this as an outlet, instead.
An Away carry-on suitcase for splurging on the trendy luggage you see all over Instagram, but for good reason. It basically solves every airport woe with its durable hard shell, ejectable battery to charge your phone, TSA-approved combo lock (no more fitting your suitcase in the bathroom stall), and 360° spinner wheels. You might start booking trips just to use this.
A tube of Smith’s rosebud salve that’ll serve as a midday pickup with its subtle 🌹rose scent🌹, but treat super dry skin EVERYwhere, including chapped lips, elbows, knees, and toes. Wherever there’s a rash or dry patch, this can help instantly.
A pair of platform Doc Martens so you can wear the HECK out of these forever-cool boots for as long as you have feet. If you’re going to ~hop~ on a trend, may they be as durable and practical as these.
A fancy-looking fruit-infuser water bottle, because it turns out staying hydrated (eight glasses a day, people!) is only feasible when it tastes like cherries. Does this make us children? Who cares.
A Roku stick for streamlining all of your favorite programs to one TV — aka exactly what you’ll need to properly binge. We’re talking Netflix, HBO, cable alternatives, and sports and news shows, like CBS and ABC. No more overpaying for cable just to get a limited selection of shows — this’ll make sure everything is available for SO much less.
But making any practical purchases that DON’T feel like a treat:
