5 Household Luxuries Worth the Splurge

Glamorous and luxurious additions that will transform your home into a luxurious oasis. They also make great housewarming gifts!

We all know that money can’t buy happiness. It’s the little things in life, like accepting an award, being praised by colleagues, or hearing sweet words from a loved one that really give us joy and meaning in our lives. So what’s all the fuss about buying the latest Range Rover model and driving it off to the mountains for a weekend getaway? Or getting a glam new metallic Chanel bag and sporting it to your High School reunion? Or surprising your husband with a new Rolex watch after you crack a project and got a hefty bonus from your boss? These are all luxuries in life that we need money for. Material things that we spend on; but the question is, is it worth it?

5 Household Luxuries Worth the Splurge

If you worked hard for it then go ahead and reward yourself!

Treating yourself to the luxuries you’ve been lusting after has its perks. It makes you remember your hard work. Luxurious items are expensive. But if you worked hard for it and you saved every penny of your salary, then you know you earned it, dammit! Your parents might say that you should have just bought a second-hand SUV, but the thing is, they aren’t you. Some people might question why you needed to buy the limited edition Ferrari Blackberry mobile phone, when you could’ve just bought a normal Blackberry. But it isn’t the same, is it? You worked hard and you’ve got your eye on the prize. In fact, these prizes motivate you to work harder — and motivation to work hard is always a good thing. Nobody else works on our behalf, so why should they get a say on how we spend money?

Here are five of our favorite splurges that give your home a luxurious bang-for-your-buck:

    That is such a sweet idea! I would be thrilled to receive a welcome package with such luxurious and thoughtful gifts! I’ll keep these in mind for whenever I have to go to a housewarming party too. 🙂

  2. Leah Helms

    I love most of these but as someone who just got married, stop with the knives…. Yes they’re a great gift, but everyone knows that they are. I got 6 or 7 sets!!…..way too many!

  3. Nancy Musselman

    I love and would want all of these gifts! Great list! Really luxurious however practical and useful gifts with great meaning! 🙂

    I totally have a housewarming to go to next weekend – you’re a life saver! Love the idea of a towel warmer. Thanks for the cool ideas! 🙂

    All beautiful pieces! However my preference is to always go for something edible – that way if they already have a beautiful cutting board, I’m not adding to the clutter. The custom address stamp in my opinion would also be a a great idea. I’d love one, but I never know how long I’ll be in a place!

    I really don’t see the point of house-warming gifts. Sure, they’re nice if someone you’ve been friends with forever moves halfway across the country but unless you’re a neighbor of a newly moved-in family, I don’t see the point. And the best gift, in that case, is food. Really. Find out what the new neighbors like and give them food for the first week— and plan it out with neighbors to make sure that not everyone gives them all the food on the first night. This right here is the best gift ever— not worrying about food/to-go orders and focusing all the energy on unpacking and organizing. Makes things so much easier!

      The list is geared to a house warming party present and you wouldn’t go to one without taking something.

    I don’t see why anybody would hate anything on this list. Many of them are useful, and if you are actually an adult building a home (not an immature extended-adolescent, playing video games and eating off of mismatched plates from Ikea), you will want things like trivets and tasting plates. Seriously? I guess nobody has common courtesy or class. Often, moving is expensive and things get lost, or someone is setting up their own place for the first time. Getting them something nice for their place is a thoughtful, helpful, and grown-up thing to do. Why would you be so against it?

  8. Janet Roper

    I came down to say how much I loved this list and then was taken aback by all the negative responses. This list probably caters to people throwing a house warming for their own house. Nevertheless it’s been the most helpful. Good utensils and a nice cutting board is very important so your expensive knives don’t blunt. ?

    I love these ideas, but I don’t know anybody who’s generous enough to gift these things out… So instead of receiving housewarming gifts, I would much rather have a bunch of gift cards for places like Lowes, Home Depot, Home Goods and Target. 🙂

    No better gift than your bestfriend coming over to your new place for the first time with a bottle of champagne, some chocolate and a few chickflick tear jerker blurays. 🙂
