Editor’s note: We’ve updated this story to reflect that Brooklinen is offering 20 percent off their whole site during their Black Friday sale.

The great thing about luxury is that you define what it means to you. Sometimes it’s buying a designer bag. Sometimes it’s being able to clear your schedule without a second thought. And sometimes it’s owning linen sheets. Brooklinen linen sheets, to be exact.

Growing up, I was a 100-percent-cotton type of girl when it came to my sheets. They were what suited my eczema-prone skin the best, despite Puerto Rico’s hot and humid temperatures. I never thought about changing my ways since bedding isn’t something I had deep thoughts about — until a year ago, that is, when Brooklinen sent me a linen sheet set for review.

Like the headline suggests, I didn’t know luxury until I got these linen sheets. Who knew one could develop such intense opinions when it came to bedding? Not me.

Not only are they extremely soft to the touch, but they are great at regulating my body temperature so my skin always feels comfortable. I now understand why they are dubbed “the internet’s fave sheets.” My cotton days are behind me, and I’ve become that friend who’s always egging everyone I know to make the change for themselves, too. However, I fully understand that dropping around $279 for a full linen sheet set is a luxury in and of itself.

Luckily, Brooklinen is offering 20 percent off their whole site during their Black Friday sale. So if you’re open to redefine what luxury means to you, we suggest investing in these sheets or in any of the brand’s best sellers below:

The best-selling linen sheet set, made of thermoregulating European flax, comes in sizes that fit a twin all the way up to a California King–size bed.

Reviewers (like myself!) love the luxe sheets for how soft and lightweight they are.

Sometimes, luxury also is switching your $20 pillow for a much-needed upgraded one.

If you still haven’t developed strong feelings for bedsheets and are still looking for the perfect holiday gift for your fatherly figure, consider this super-plush robe that is now under $100.

Towels are another form of luxury. But that’s for another post.
