10 must-have payday treats

Payday is finally here (it’s been a while, hasn’t it?) and with it comes the chance to do a little self-gifting. If you’ve been adding stuff to your basket all month long, now’s the time to press that checkout button. To celebrate surviving what seems to have been the longest January ever, we’ve picked out some fabulous buys to treat yourself with. You've earned it after all...



1. Eye-catching bag

Lauren By Ralph Lauren Medium Shoulder Chain Bag


Shake up your accessories collection with this stunner of a bag that ticks all the trend boxes. Making just the right amount of statement without compromising on important everyday wearability, it’ll go with just about everything – and will make even your most stylish colleague envious.

Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Shoulder Bag, £279


2. Winter skin saviour

Origins Ginzing Ultra Hydrating Energy Boosting Cream

Take your skin from dull to glowing in no time with the much-loved Ginzing moisturing cream from Origins. The caffeine and gingseng is the wake-up call that your complexion needs this winter. Trust us, after all that central heating and blustering winds, your skin deserves a little healing.

Origins, Ultra Hydrating Boosting Cream, £26


3. Layers of cosiness

Shepherd of Sweden Linn Long Sheepskin Rug


We think a little home refresh is in order this winter, and a sumptuous sheepskin rug is just the update your interiors need. Yes, the millennial blush pink shade might be slightly unconventional but it definitely ticks off those boho Scandi vibes. Think of it like a treat for your feet. 

Shepherd of Sweden, Sheepskin Rug, £129


4. Denim dreams

Levis Ribcage Jeans


Meet your new favourite jeans – the Levi’s Ribcage. Featuring a super high waist and an easy, straight leg, we’re not surprised that they’ve quickly become an insider favourite. Pair them with Western-inspired ankle boots, a classic white shirt and an oversized coat for an influencer-approved look.

Levis, Ribcage High-Waisted Straight Jeans, £95


5. Luxurious perfume

Gucci Memoire d'une Odeur 100ml Gift set


Switch up your signature scent this payday with Memoire d’une Odeur, the first genderless fragrance from Gucci. Luxurious yet light and airy, it’s been on our wish lists for a while. A little Gucci never hurt anyone, right?


Gucci, Memomoire d'une Odeur 100ml Gift Set, £92


6. Coffee shop experience

Nespresso Lattissima One Coffee Machine


Say goodbye to endless queues at Pret with a coffee machine as beautiful as the concoctions it produces. Quick, easy and mess-free, it’ll make you actually want to wake up in the mornings. We know, we never thought it possible either.  

Nespresso, Lattissima One Coffee Machine, £219.99


7. Minimalist kicks

PS by Paul Smith White Leather Trainers


You can tell a great man by his shoes, right? The effortlessly cool yet timeless style of these PS by Paul Smith ones means the right impression will be made at all times – at the office, the bottomless brunch, the pub date and everything in between.

PS by Paul Smith, Leather Trainers, £145


8. Swoon-worthy scent

Sunday of London XL Scented Candle


As self-professed candle hoarders, we believe there's no better way to chase away the winter blues than by the flicker of a wick. A boujee new candle is the ultimate payday treat and, by the way, this one lasts up to 80 hours so totally justifies that splurge. 

Sunday of London, Scented Candle, £60


9. Great times

Calvin Klein City Chronograph Watch


The accessory to end all accessories, an elegant timepiece is a must-have for every man’s wardrobe. Sleek and stylish, this Calvin Klein chronograph watch features an embossed leather strap and a date function. If that’s not a good investment, we don’t know what is.

Calvin Klein, City Chronograph Watch, £269


10. Stellar dress

Ted Baker Adriela Fern Midi Dress


Party season may be behind us but those spring weddings are fast approaching and, for once, it’d be nice to actually have something to wear. This effortless, floral number has 'best-dressed guest' written all over it and will, needless to say, impress any attractive ushers that may be at said occasion.    

Ted Baker, Adriela Fern Midi Dress, £179
