Your days of a guaranteed spring break may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a few of the perks that come with hotel living from the comfort of your home. Sleep in with the help of a silk mask or use a fragrant candle to make your home smell like Hawaii. Here are a handful of small luxuries to help create a vacation vibe at home.
1.The Ethical Silk Company Eye Mask, $30.
When hotel-grade blackout shades aren't an option, opt for an eco mulberry silk and organic cotton eye mask.
2. Ethics Supply Co. Haleakala's House of the Sun Candle, $40.
Notes of black tea leaf, smoked seashell, and rich tobacco transport you to the summit of Maui's towering Haleakala volcano.
3. Local + Lejos Tierra Blanket, $150.
Handwoven in Guatemala by a collective of women artisans, the striped wool blanket will provide endless hours of cozy lounging and feel-good vibes. A month of electricity is provided to a local family every time a blanket is sold.

Himalayan and Dead Sea Salts help remove toxins, stimulate circulation, and sooth sore muscles. Sprinkle a palmful of the jasmine sumac and geranium scented salts in a warm bath for a relaxing soak.
5. Near & Far: Recipes Inspired by Home and Travel, $19.
Instead of traditional takeout fare, try your hand at creating a recipe from Heidi Swanson's healthy vegetarian cookbook. Inspired by her travels to Morocco, Japan, Italy, France, and India, recipes include soba noodles with feather-light tempura and fragrant Marrakech flatbreads.
6. Stevie Howell Silk Robe, $395.
A silky, floral robe ensures the utmost comfort while lounging in bed and playing catch up with your Netflix queue.
