Some people struggle with doing nice things for themselves. I have family members and friends who only buy gifts for the people around them and never think to buy for themselves. Unfortunately, I do not have this problem. Last year, when I was Christmas shopping, I picked up a gift for myself almost every time that I ventured out to brave a shopping mall. How can you spoil anyone else if you don't know how to spoil yourself? I'm not sure that it's great logic, but it does help me sleep at night. If you aren't prone to splurging, you may be wondering why anyone spends money on little luxuries, but some life upgrades are totally worth the splurge.
Whether it makes life easier or just more pleasurable, splurging on yourself is a valid thing to do. Granted, not everyone is able to afford big purchases, and that's OK! You can find ways to splurge that don't involve money, like painting your nails or indulging in a long bubble bath. But if you do have a bit of extra cash and want to treat yourself, I've got a few suggestions. From big-ticket items to small luxuries, these are my favorite life upgrades that you should consider.
14An Espresso Machine
Who needs Starbucks when you've got your own fancy coffee at home? An espresso machine makes it easy for you to whip up cafe-quality drinks without leaving your kitchen.
17A Flower Subscription
When you're filling out this subscription form, The Bouqs Company wisely asks if they're for a friend or for yourself. You won't have to wait on anyone to buy you flowers if you go all out and buy your own floral subscription. It's genius. Make 2018 the year of treating yourself, whether the treats are small or over-the-top. You deserve it.
