Sometimes, you just need to give yourself a pick-me-up. Maybe you tackled spring cleaning early this year. Maybe you just had a really hard week. Maybe you had a really good week. No matter the reason, there’s nothing wrong with a little something special for either yourself or a friend. From gorgeous coffee table books to pretty nail polish, we did a round up of 100 things under $100 our editors are actually buying right now.
Indulging in some new skincare or beauty products can give you a relaxing spa moment, even if you’re in your own bathroom. A rose gold skin mask, a Westman Atelier cream blush stick, or fancy new Oribe shampoo are all instant pick-me-ups. How about a bright red Hermes polish or a punchy fuchsia Chanel shade to take into your next pedicure?
A pretty new lipstick is an easy dose of glamorous when you’re feeling down. Merit’s Slick Tinted Lip Oil or Charlotte Tilbury’s Luminous Modern lipstick give you buildable coverage without drying your lips out.
Switching up your routine can change your entire attitude. Switch your home scent out with a new Jenni Kayne candle, Topanga. It was inspired by Topanga Canyon and has gorgeous nots of green leaves, eucalyptus, and vanilla. Or Le Labo’s Santal 26 for a more classic smell.
Al fresco dining season is right around the corner, so spruce up your dinner party game with some pretty new brass candleholders, a new vase for spring blooms, or seagrass-wrapped serving utensils. I always love a fresh linen, like this blue-and-white batik printed Amanda Lindroth napkin or McGee & Co tea towels to spruce up your kitchen.
A coffee table book is a lovely little luxury, whether it’s a brand new cookbook like the Essential New York Times Cookbook or a beautiful book of interiors for inspiration like Athena Calderone’s Live Beautiful.
If you want to splurge on one truly amazing thing, then this Anthony Thomas Melillo shirt in either navy or white will change your life. Gap’s new collection is really good, and this linen boyfriend shirt in light blue or beige will keep you cool all summer long. A statement gold hair pin feels more like jewelry than a boring hair rubber band. Spice up your white jeans with a linen and tan belt from J.McLaughlin.
Finally, slip into a new pair of slides. Bottega Veneta isn’t exactly budget-friendly, but you can get the look for less with these braided leather sandals, either heeled in a crisp white or flats in an earthy tan.
