Whether it’s treating yourself to the occasional fancy coffee, keeping your accessories organized just so, or using a jade roller with simple drugstore skincare, it’s fun to be bougie. No matter how low-maintenance you claim to be, it’s hard to resist treating yourself to something really nice one in a while. However, you don’t need to spring for a SoulCycle membership or blow your grocery budget at Whole Foods to tap into that feeling of luxury on a regular basis. There are some cheap finds on Amazon that bougie people are loving — you know, those seemingly “extra” things that come with an affordable price tag — and they’re all on this list.

Since bougie is about quality of life, many of these are small-yet-significant upgrades for things you use every day. That satin pillowcase on this list will have you waking up with smooth hair in the morning, and the high-pressure showerhead will essentially turn your bathroom into a spa. But if you live for good coffee, the cheap-AF milk frother might be the best thing that happens to your kitchen — or the set of curated spice labels for total organization. Not to mention, the wine aerator could literally breathe new life into Two-Buck Chuck and make good wine taste even better.

Again, all of these things are fairly cheap, so you won’t break the bank when you shop. And don’t think “cheap” means disposable, either; all of these picks are backed by thousands — sometimes hundreds of thousands — of rave reviews from Amazon shoppers testifying to their status as certified gems that will seriously level-up your life.
