11 Luxury Items That Are Actually Worth the Money

Undergarments

Although it seems like women are doomed to always spend more money on underwear than men, there are definitely ways that both sexes can upgrade their undies. For women, buying a custom-fitted bra can make you comfortable in ways that you previously thought impossible. That, plus a matching pair of lacy underwear is definitely the key to conquering the world.

For men, take note: no quality garments ever come in packs of three. Splurging on a few nice pairs of well-made boxers (or briefs, if that’s more your style) will ensure that you never chafe again. The seamless kind are especially nice on your more delicate areas, especially if you have to be sitting down for long periods of time.

Real Champagne

While Champagne isn’t for everyone, it’s hard to top in terms of its ability to set the mood on special occasions. No one wants to toast to someone’s wedding, or to the New Year, with cheap white wine. But that’s actually what most people are getting when they buy cheap bottles of wine labelled as champagne. Unless it’s spelled with a capital ‘C’, it isn’t actually made in the proper region of France, and consequently cannot be classified as true Champagne.

Next time you’re looking for something to set the mood, splurge on a bottle from Moet & Chandon or Krug. They’re two of the top producers in the world, and their Champagnes are always effervescent, light, and beautifully refreshing.

An Education

With the admission fees of colleges skyrocketing, many people are beginning to classify higher education as a luxury item rather than a necessity. After all, the argument can be made that there have been many successful people who rose to the top of their fields without getting a college or university degree.

However, the luxury to spend multiple years doing nothing but learning how to think and write cannot be overstated. Plus, studies have shown that the benefits of a four-year college degree are equivalent to an investment that returns at a rate of 15.2% per year. It will directly affect your future earnings in a positive way, so instead of thinking about it as a luxury item, think of it as a long-term loan to yourself.
