As much as you deserve to book a romantic trip to a Poconos spa with your future hubby Harry Styles, not all wishes come true. I know, it sucks. But one thing that you can do is upgrade your decidedly meh (sorry, not sorry) bathroom situation and transform it into a calming oasis.

This spa bathroom upgrade doesn’t have to cost thousands of dollars like on HGTV. In fact, I took the liberty of scouring Amazon for affordable bathroom items that will help you get your zen on.

From plush towels to showerheads with hard water filters, the goal here is to make sure you feel like you’re diving into an XXL tub of Crème de la Mer every time you step into your brand-new spa bathroom. Yes, even if you’re just taking a poo.

So slip on your cozy robe (a must!), comb a hair treatment through your locks and let’s get to work.

I’m just as surprised as you are that a towel warmer — aka the height of spa bathroom luxury — costs less than a pair of headphones. But, hey, I’ll take it! This large warming bucket can fit up to two XL towels and seamlessly fits in with any bathroom decor.

It all begins with towels. More than 40,000 Amazon shoppers agree that these are the fluffiest white towels for the most affordable price. The set comes with two bath towels, two hand towels and four washcloths.

P.S.: Whether they’re sitting in a decorative pile or you’re using one to slowly wipe off a hydrating face mask like in every YouTube tutorial, multiple washcloths are key.

5. KINCMAX Shower Caddy Basket Shelf with Hooks, $34.59 (Orig. $43.99)

All of your bath products hanging out in the shower corner is most definitely not the vibes. Replace the pile with this sleek pack of two matte black shower caddies. It comes with adjustable hooks and adheres to the tile even better than suction cups.

6. Eucalyptus for Shower, $43.98

If you have yet to tie a fresh eucalyptus bunch to your shower head, this will change your life (this is what it looks like!). The steam from the shower releases the natural oil in the eucalyptus for the most rejuvenating and cleansing experience. This bunch is hand-picked from California, packaged with care and comes with a ribbon for hanging!

7. BodyRestore Shower Steamers, $29.97

To make your routine shower feel just as relaxing as a tub soak, plop down one of these steamers. Watch it dissolve and take a deep breath in. Pro tip: If you work from home, use one of these during a mid-day shower between meetings. It’s way better than that third cup of coffee.

8. 32 Ounce Large Amber Glass Boston Round Bottles, $14.99

Bath products come in ugly bottles. That’s just a fact. So order these and use the handy funnel (included with purchase) to pour your favorite shampoo and conditioner out of their unaesthetic bottles and into these chic ones. You can also order a pack of four for your body wash, deep conditioning masks, lotions, etc.

Remember when we talked about ugly shampoo bottles? Well, ugly toothbrushes are even worse — but they’re kind of a bathroom necessity. Lucky for everyone, quip, the fan-favorite electric toothbrush comes in a chic gold that you’ll want to look at every day. Mount it to your mirror or somewhere on your bathroom wall and show it off.
