Fancy a Little Treat? All These Happy Picks Are $40 or Under

Whatever you've done to convince yourself that you deserve a little treat, just know that I support you. A good day at work, a bad day at work, a reward for getting something done, a bribe to create a good habit… I see you. I respect that. 

I like to approach impulsive little treats the same way I approach white elephant gifting: A bit of forethought means affordable doesn't border on frivolous or wasteful. There are loads of worthwhile shopping picks that are an absolute steal—if you fancy a handy shopping list, feel free to borrow mine. From cool fashion items to stylish homewares and very worthwhile beauty buys to get you through winter, all these happy little treats are $40 or under.

Natalie Cantell
Executive Director, Brand Studio

Natalie leads the style direction for the all content we create in partnership with our friends at various brands plus the legendary team of editors who work on those shoots and stories. She loves collaborating and storytelling, so it's a really fun role for her. It's also the first full-time job she's ever had⁠! She started out in her career as a very mediocre model who agreed to her first styling job to impress a photographer she had a crush on, which led her down a happy path of contributing to Vogue Australia and working as a stylist, fashion writer, and creative director for all sorts of brands and titles. She has a bachelor of communications, but most of her career opportunities came up thanks to some fleeting and accidental street style moments. She's been at Who What Wear for three and a half years and still loves to work as a freelance consultant with brands and designers to shoot their campaigns in NYC. She's originally from New Zealand, and Bondi Beach is her second home, but like just about every other 20-something, she fell in love with New York at some point. She lives in Williamsburg with her fiancé and their weird little dog, Ruby. If you ever need reccies for feel-good fashion, legit coffee spots, politics podcasts, or non-intimidating yoga studios, she's very much your girl.
