It’s Friday, which is reason enough to celebrate, but on top of that do you know what today is? Yes, Friday the 13th, but that's now what we're talking about. It’s National Treat Yo Self Day! The day created on Parks and Recreation by characters Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) and Donna Meagle (Retta). You deserve a day to pamper yourself, whether it’s a physical, emotional or even a mental way to treat yourself.

If you’re wondering how to treat yourself and live your best life on a budget without breaking the bank, we've got you covered. Check out our list of favorite Treat Yo Self Day ideas below.

Zeel Massages

An in-home massage delivered at your door sounds unreal, right? Well, it’s not. Zeel offers in-home massages, allowing you to relax, recuperate and unplug without setting a foot outside. One of the best parts about Zeel is that there is no pre-planning involved. You can book in the same day, in as little as an hour. So, get to booking your massages for tonight. Maybe even a Treat Yo Self Day Girls Night!

Honey Promo Codes

If you’re like us, than the ideal treat would be buying yourself something new, whether it be boots for fall or even a new bag. Honey is an app that automatically applies discounts for you. So instead of searching the internet high and low, Honey hangs around waiting for you to enter checkout and applies automatic discounts. The more you use the discounts, the more you rack up rewards. Sounds like a win-win!

Prête Blowout

Sometimes all we need is a nice service done at a salon. Blowout anyone? Download the Prête app and treat yourself to a one. All you have to do is tell them where you are, and when you want to go. What better way to walk into the weekend?

Be alone

It can be a little overwhelming to hear “treat yourself.” You may start thinking of huge treats like that new designer bag you want. But in reality sometimes, all we need are the simplest things to treat and relax ourselves. Treat yourself to time alone—you can get a drink alone, or even see a movie alone. You’ll find that being alone and treating yourself to time with no one but you may give you clarity.


You may be thinking how is yoga a treat to yourself, but believe it or not, it can be. Yoga relaxes your mind, body, and soul and you can bring it into your home. Yoga Today offers a library of classes that you can take with a free 14-day trial. It’s the Treat Yo Self Day gift that keeps on giving. Try a class with them and tap into your inner peace, because you deserve it.

Eye-Brow Microblading

We can all agree that microblading is certainly a "treat to self" type of service. If you're in the New York City area, Eyebrow Doctor offers eyebrow shaping, tinting, microblading and even lash services. This is another treat that keeps on giving, because the longevity of it will keep you looking fab post-Treat Yo Self Day.
