If you ask me, we could all use more bougie vibes in our life. There’s a reason why “treat yourself” gets dropped in everyday conversations (or maybe that’s just my friend group). Fortunately, the future is here and we live in an era where fancy products are available with the tap of our fingers, along with reviews, ratings, and user photos. That’s right: I’m talking about the fancy-yet-affordable items available on Amazon; once you see them, you’ll wonder why you haven’t added them to your cart yet.

If you’re looking to level up some of your purchases, then you just might find something perfect on this list of bougie products you didn’t know you needed. Some of my personal favorites are the gorgeous satin scarf that comes in so many patterns you’ll want one for every day of the week and the elegant candle holders (for which I don’t even own the right candles — but I’m not letting it stop me). Consider yourself warned, though: You may also be inspired to get a year or two worth of birthday and holiday shopping done, since friends and family will likely appreciate the upscale vibes these products provide.
