Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and whether you’re currently single and want to celebrate yourself, or you’re in a relationship but not expecting to be bowled over by the perfect gift, it’s time to buy yourself something nice. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to treat yourself to a little luxury (or two). Is there a fancy matcha latte mix you’ve been eyeing to upgrade your afternoon tea time? A popular product from a brand you’ve been coveting, such as the Great Jones Holy Sheet? A darling piece of cookware that will look perfect atop your stove, such as a heart-shaped, cast-iron skillet? If so, you’ve come to the right place: Consider this an excuse to treat yourself.

Here are 10 little indulgences that feel like big luxuries and put a smile on your face without breaking the bank.
