29 items from Target that look expensive but are actually super budget-friendly
If heaven does exist, I hope with all my bones it’s a Target. Only at Target can you grab this week’s groceries, kitty litter, the latest serum from Pixi Beauty, an oil diffuser, a new pair of sandals you can wear to the beach, and not feel THAT guilty about the eight foot long receipt you’re handed at the end of it all, because come on, it’s Target! The Home of Necessary Things. No matter if you already have a billion serums and sandals! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that in these last few years, Target has really stepped it up with their luxe products — I think at this point it would be hard to differentiate between a Target love seat and a West Elm love seat. It’s a bold statement, but I am NOT taking it back.
Here are 29 things from Target that feel oh-so luxurious, but come with a reasonable price tag.
Threshold Gold Drum Accent Table, $64 (was $80)
I too have a gold accent table in my living room from Targét, and it instantly makes me feel like a home decor Instagram star/rich person. It also just goes with everything.

Finally! We’re able to get BaubleBar at Target, aka one of the best collabs in the world. I love these rings especially, because I’m into that clunky, layered-ring look right now.
