It’s a common misconception that bougie things have to cost a lot of money. But that’s simply not true. Amazon is loaded with budget-friendly products that make your home look nicer — you just have to know where to look. Luckily, these items are already gaining a ton of buzz from real customers who have learned for themselves just how well they work.

At-home chefs will find several kitchen tools that make cooking so much easier, such as this handheld frying pan screen that protects your arms and clothes from hot oil. You can also grind nuts, spices, and herbs by hand with this mortar and pestle set cut from elegant marble. There’s even a handy digital thermometer that quickly reads the temperatures of meats, bread loaves, and liquid.

This list also includes plenty of sophisticated touches for your bedroom, as well. Toss this ultra-warm sherpa blanket over the foot of your bed for a cozy touch, or replace your cotton pillowcases with these satin ones that retain your hair and skin’s moisture while you sleep. If you have to make a quick trip to the bathroom, slide on these cross band slippers piled high with luxuriously soft faux fur.

While you can’t always believe the hype surrounding a product, I’m here to tell you that these surprisingly cheap, bougie items on Amazon are the real deal. Just ask the thousands of customers who have left glowing reviews.
