The pillows from this Canadian company are truly heavenly. They come in a variety of styles and price points, but the best-selling 1867 Pillow is made with Canadian white feather and white duck down (the company is certified by Downmark, which supports sustainable down initiatives) for a soft and supportive sleep.

There are few things more decadent then breakfast in bed. IKEA’s trusty bed tray in a bamboo finish offers a hit of stylish and practical lavishness to any Saturday morning—especially when it’s loaded with locally sourced baked goods.
These sheets are consistently highly rated and it’s easy to see why. The luxurious 480-thread count weave on the Luxe Core Sheet set is made with 100 per cent cotton sateen fabric, which gives them that coveted buttery feel.

This much-loved skin and body care line from Australia has developed somewhat of a cult following in recent years and is the soap of choice in trendy hotel and restaurant bathrooms across North America. The brand’s meticulously crafted combo of plant-based and laboratory-made ingredients results in effective and amazing-smelling products, such as this hand wash that cleanses and exfoliates.
The robes from this popular, Los Angeles-based bedding and bath company are certainly worth the price. While its classic robe is particularly popular, we love the spa-inspired waffle robe that is made from 100 per cent Turkish cotton, making it both lightweight and soft.
Since slippers are pretty much the only footwear we are wearing right now, investing in a good pair is a necessary splurge. The slingback design of these Ugg slippers is perfect for spring and summer, while the genuine-shearling fabric still offers a plush and cosy feel. (Bonus: they also come in kids’ sizes.)
