35 Useful Products On Amazon That Seem Expensive But Cost Less Than $35


Amazon isn't just a great place to find gadgets or buy toiletries in bulk; believe it or not, the online retailer is also a treasure trove of gorgeous home goods and elegant electronics that are shockingly affordable. For less than $35 you can find tons of hidden gems on Amazon that are not only must-haves in any home, but also look like you snagged them from a luxury boutique or high-end department store.

Case in point: a set of handmade Turkish cotton peshtemal towels that were woven on traditional wooden looms. These towels are high-quality, elegant, and cost less than $25 for a set of four. And as if that weren't enough to entice you to add them to your cart, then let's talk about the unique benefits of Turkish cotton — which isn't just another buzzy marketing word. Unlike your typical Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton dries quicker, making it less susceptible to mildew and musty odors. And because Turkish cotton fibers are longer, they're also more durable and will become softer with every wash.

But even if you're not in the market for a set of luxury towels or chic new Bluetooth speaker, this list is full of other amazing deals on items that no one will believe you spent less than $35 on.

A Set Of Spa-Quality Towels Made Of Turkish Cotton

This $30 Comforter That Has A Cult Following

Thousands of five-star reviews are always impressive — but especially when the price tag reads "$30." Instead of down, the Linenspa all-season quilted comforter is made from a hypoallergenic microfiber fill, which buyers describe as "soft, plushy, airy, and lightweight." It's box-stitched to avoid the fill from shifting, and it's machine-washable and dryer-safe, too.
