Who doesn’t like to treat themselves to a little luxury? The word luxury means something different to everyone. However, it basically boils down to something that adds pleasure or comfort to your day. It could also be an indulgence that provides you pleasure, satisfaction, or ease.
We all live busy, hectic lives so having a little luxury to look forward to at the beginning or end of our day can really make us smile. I thought I would put together a list of little luxuries that elevate your everyday. These are great ideas to gift to yourself or to others.
Before we look at some great things to elevate the everyday here are a few other posts I have written with some fun gift ideas.

Why Not Elevate Your Day With A Little Luxury
Sometimes it is just the little things in life that can make an OK day into a really good day. Know what I mean? I am a creature of comfort and I think that I am not alone when I say that. Most of us have our favorite things in life that just bring us a little joy.
I thought I would round up some great things that are all under $100 (most under $50) that would be great to add to your wish list or to give to a friend or family member who could use something to spark a little joy in their day.
Little Luxuries That Can Put A Smile On Your Face
Who doesn’t love to smile? It’s a great way to start the day and end the day. Here are some little things that can make that happen.
Once you sleep on a silk pillowcase there is no turning back. I have been doing this for years. Not only is it good for your hair, but it is also good for your skin. Both just glide over the fabric. Plus it just feels good.
This set of a pillowcase with scrunchies is a nice bundle. Another product that I swear by from Slip is their silk eye masks. If I am having trouble going to sleep or want to take a good nap this goes on my face. This ornament of scrunchies is also a cute gift idea.
Weighted Blanket For Your Eyes
Now this eye blanket looks like it would be ideal for Sunday afternoon naps in the winter. So many people swear by their weighted blankets so this might be a nice way to see if this works for you.
Oh how a nice eye mask can feel so good. To me, it is a quick way to give myself a pick-me-up when I am tired. I have tried so many different ones over the years and have narrowed it down to a few that I rotate amongst. These Wander eye masks are great for travel. Individually packaged and they do the trick if you are crossing many time zones. These cucumber masks are great for depuffing and hydrating the skin.\
For the Rose lover, why not a chilled rose eye mask for a little eye happiness? Yes, these eye masks are made with Resveraterol from grapes and strawberry extract.
Cuticle and Hand Cream
The Dior cuticle cream is a great option to keep in your purse or at your desk. Think of how often we notice dry cuticles in the wintertime. This cream will keep your hands looking their best
This French hand lotion is my very favorite. I keep a tube of it in my desk drawer. It smells wonderful and it is not greasy. Last year when we were in Paris I stocked up. Mark just rolled his eyes. If you are a lavender lover this shae butter hand cream is heavenly.
I love a good spritz of this pillow spray on my silk pillowcase. Some night I even put an extra spritz or two into the air so it can fall onto the top sheet that will be up near my face. It is such a pretty scent.
If you are a Jo Malone perfume fan, then you may want to add this pillow spray to your list of a daily little luxury. Lavender and Moonflower sounds like a scent match made in heaven.
Heavenly Scented Candle
There is just something about a burning candle that can be so relaxing and calming. This Wellness candle is one of my favorite scents. Many days you can find it on my desk while I work and the scent is not overpowering. This trio of wellness scents is great to be able to spread around a larger room or just to use one at a time. Another candle that I love for a little luxury is this one from Diptyque. You can’t go wrong with any of their candles.
Having soft, hydrated lips is a must for me. A little luxury that I do every night before bed is a lip mask. The fact that they are clean beauty masks is important to me. I alternate between this mask and this lip oil. This plumping clear lip gloss is a part of my daily routine to keep my lips soft and look their best for lipstick.
Shower or bath Steamers
Let’s face it. Some days all we have time for is a quick shower. On those days I love to squirt a little of this eucalyptus spray into the air. Clears the sinuses and just sets the tone for the day. Why not turn your shower into a spa to start the day.
These deep moisturizing pebbles are made for the bath or shower. So for those days you have a little more time to indulge in a little luxury these are the perfect treat.
Who doesn’t love slipping into a plush slipper when they get up in the morning? These beauties are so padded and lined in faux fur that you won’t want to take them off to put on your shoes. As a person who wears a size 5 shoe, I love the fact that these come in exact shoe sizes. They also offer complimentary monogramming.
These gripper house socks are a little luxury to me because they keep my tootsies warm all fall and winter and the grippers make sure that I don’t slide around on the hardwood floors or stairs. When it is really cold out I break out the slipper version. These are REALLY warm if you always have cold feet.
If you aren’t familiar with Barefoot Dreams products, then I would start with a pair of their cozy socks. From throws to robes to socks all of their products are oh so soft and luxurious to the touch.
