Bougie isn’t just a trendy word, it’s a way of life. From my bedroom closet to the front door of my apartment, my home and wardrobe are completely decked out with bougie items. But there’s some strategy involved when it comes to being bougie — you want to spend the least amount possible, while looking like you maxed out your cards. And luckily for both of us, Amazon’s got tons of cheap-but-bougie items that look way more expensive than they are.

Case in point? The throw pillow covers made with soft faux fur. Not only do they add some texture to stale rooms, but they’re even available in a variety of rich, accent-friendly colors. Or, if you’re looking for some bougie (yet effective) skincare, make sure to check out the under-eye patches I’ve included. Each one is made with real 24-karat gold — and with regular use, they can even help reduce the appearance of dark circles.

Even if you aren’t bougie, these cheap Amazon finds are still worth the price — and I think I might’ve even seen a few with your name written right on them. So what are you waiting for? Those eye patches really are made with gold, you know.


This Spray That Helps Keep Hair Smooth & Frizz-Free

A Hot Air Brush That Volumizes Limp Roots

These Throw Pillow Covers That Come In 13 Different Colors

The Pillowcases Made With Silky-Smooth Satin

Satin produces less friction against your hair than cotton, which means these satin pillowcases can help reduce frizz while you sleep at night.

Scratching an expensive pair of sunglasses can be heartbreaking — but luckily, this organizer is lined with soft velvet to help keep them safe. There’s enough space for up to eight pairs, while the transparent top lets you show off your collection for everyone to see.
