Update Your Bedding
No matter the season or weather, a beautiful new bedding set is in order. New luxurious sheets and comforter sets evoke the feeling of a fresh start. Find yourself the most sumptuous designs and fabrics at the luxury comforter sale. You’ll never want to get up in the morning. Or, you’ll want to slip back in bed for a perfectly quiet afternoon nap.
Select colors that coordinate or contrast with your current decor. Perhaps you enjoy changing your home’s look as the seasons change. With that in mind, you can choose delicate pastels and bright whites for spring and summer and moody indigo or vibrant plaids for the fall and winter months. Whatever you decide on, pick linens that make you happy whenever you look at them.
Go ahead and order some beautiful new bedding. While you’re at it, get sets for the rest of the family and the guest room, too. They make wonderful gifts or everyday surprises. Everyone will be slumbering in refined comfort before you know it.
Buy a New Scarf
A scarf is not only utilitarian in its purposeful intention to keep you warm, but it offers a wealth of possibilities. A soft cashmere or silk scarf can be a wrap, a cover-up, or a shawl draped easily around your shoulders. It can be broad and vast, almost like a blanket. It can also serve as an impromptu throw on your next flight when the air is chilly. Your fashionable scarf might be skinny by design and wrapped multiple times around your graceful neck.
In addition to their usefulness, scarves can create multiple stylish opportunities. Select a logo design from your favorite fashion house. Tie a stunning square scarf around your Birken’s handle for that extra zhush. Wrapping a scarf around your hair as a tie or a hair-covering will make you look ultra chic while hiding your wind-swept hair after a day out.

Gifts and treats come in all shapes and sizes. They can be intangible. On that note, consider doing something you enjoy.
Do you have a favorite book or author? If so, look for their next book reading near you. What a treat you’ll give yourself to relax and listen to the author read an excerpt from their latest book. Grab a signed copy and then head to a coffee shop to read the tome once again.
Book a massage. This type of gift is always in order. A little relaxation while working your sore muscles will leave you feeling refreshed and ready for the next treatment. Go ahead and get a facial or even a full day at the spa while you’re there!
Look for a New Scent
Fragrances are as unique to individuals as people are selective, If you’ve been wearing what you and everyone else identify as your “signature scent” for years, perhaps it is time to add something new to your fragrance repertoire.
A change in fragrance can be enlightening and invigorating. New scents floating through the air may evoke a happy feeling based on scent memories from the past, such as the vanilla notes wafting through a house when someone is baking cookies.
That doesn’t mean that you must abandon your tried and true scent. Instead, add a little something new to the mix. Look for new perfumes that fall in the same scent class as your current favorite, or branch out for something completely different.
Always look for a scent in attractive packaging. After all, the bottle will be sitting out with your fragrance collection, so why not let it become part of your curated decor? Delightful glass decanters or unique spray bottles come in a wide variety of beautiful designs that you will be happy to look at day after day.
No matter what you decide to do, find something that will bring you joy. That item can serve an extra function or simply be a gift that brings you happiness. You spend your time taking care of others. Remember value and honor the wonderful person you are with a little treat every now and then.
