You can get a decent coffee machine without breaking the bank, but many people invest in higher-end options to make their mornings more luxurious.

One of the best options on the market is the Nespresso Vertuo Creatista Machine by Breville, which can make pretty much any espresso-based drink you can imagine. It even has an integrated frother, which does all the work for you. Business Insider previously named it the best Nespresso machine to splurge on in 2023.

It retails for $749.95, or about the same cost as 100 lattes from Starbucks. So, if you’re cringing when making the big purchase, just remember it will have paid for itself four months after you buy it.

Likewise, Le Creuset cookware is worth the hype.

Le Creuset


Le Creuset has been synonymous with luxury cookware for decades, and the brand has only gotten more popular in recent years if the topic’s over 153.5 million views on TikTok is any indication.

The brand started experimenting with trendy colors, including the much-applauded Shallot and special lines like its heart-shaped Valentine’s Day collection.

But most importantly, Le Creuset has the craftsmanship to support its aesthetic products. For instance, its $430 Traditional Dutch Oven is cast iron, can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees, and is dishwasher safe. Its products are a welcome addition to any kitchen.

Shelling out cash for products that will simplify your day-to-day life is always worth it, and a quality chef’s knife should be at the top of that list.

Whether chopping vegetables or slicing a steak, a good knife, like the $170 Wüsthof 8″ Chef’s Knife, can save you time and make your meal more cohesive.

The Wüsthof knife is a favorite of home chefs. It went viral on TikTok several times and has five-star reviews everywhere, from Amazon to Sur La Table. Plus, the handle is available in seven colors, so you can find a knife that fits your vibe.

Dyson’s Gen5outsize is even pricier than the brand’s famous Airwrap, retailing for $1,049.99.

But the cordless vacuum backs that cost with high-tech capabilities, like a laser that shows you the dust covering your home, two hours of battery time, and a screen on the handle that lets you know how much you’re cleaning.

There are plenty of high-end vacuums to choose from, but the Gen5outsize is a social media favorite — videos about it have been viewed over 173 million times on TikTok — and it has an average 4.5-star rating on Amazon.

You’ll always have to vacuum your home, so you might as well make it a luxurious experience.

A good weighted blanket can change the way you sleep.

Weighted blankets are a go-to for people searching for products that can support their sleep or make them less anxious. Good sleep is critical for physical and emotional health, so buying a weighted blanket is more like an investment in yourself than a product.

The Bearaby Napper, which starts at $199 for a 10-pound blanket and goes up to $279 for a 25-pound blanket, is one of the best options on the market. It comes in four weights and six colors, and its open weave prevents you from getting too hot when you use it. It’s also made of cotton, so it’s comfortable and machine washable.

I got to test the Bearaby Napper myself in 2020, and in just a week, I found myself more relaxed before bed and sleeping more soundly. Four years later, I still use the Bearaby and don’t sleep through the night without it.

When many people think of a good night’s rest, they imagine a stay in a luxury hotel room, resting their head on the softest (or firmest or fluffiest) pillow imaginable.

Investing in a comfortable pillow can help bring that sense of extravagance to your evening routine. One of the best options on the market is the $125 Pluto Pillow. It’s customizable through a quiz about your sleep and pillow preferences.

Despite the high price tag, people seem drawn to the pillows, as videos about them have over four billion views on TikTok.

High-end sheets from brands like Boll & Branch get a lot of hype these days, and for good reason.

Expensive sheets can do everything from feel good against your skin to cool you while you sleep. They also tend to last longer than cheaper alternatives, ensuring you get more bang for your buck.

Considering you spend half your life asleep, spending a few hundred bucks on sheets is probably worth it, and Boll & Branch‘s bedding is interior designer-approved.

It retails for $1,358, but can you put a price on high-quality sound?

Adopting a dog or cat can bring immeasurable joy to your life, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t hard work.

It can benefit you and your pet to splurge on a few luxury pet products, like a nice bed or fancy nail trimmers. One of the best high-end pet amenities is the Litter-Robot, a self-cleaning litter box that costs $699.

Available in various colors, the Litter-Robot makes it so cat parents don’t have to scoop litter, and it has fun features like weight tracking to help you take care of your pet through its WiFi capabilities. Though it’s fancier than the average litter box, the Litter-Robot is becoming popular. Videos about the pricey machine have over 15 million views on TikTok.

One of life’s simplest joys is wrapping yourself in a towel fresh from the dryer, and you can luxuriate in that experience daily if you invest in a towel warmer.

You could buy a free-standing device to get the job done, but built-in options like Pottery Barn’s Classic Towel Warmer take up less space and look more elegant in your bathroom.

Pottery Barn’s warmer comes in four sizes, ranging in price from $599 to $899. It’s expensive, but you’ll never have to dread getting out of the warm shower again.
