Simply being made a cup of tea or coffee is considered a special treat for many Brits.

January is a notoriously gloomy month.

With Christmas debts looming, weather that leaves something to be desired, and the never-ending torment that is Dry January inflicting itself on many of us, it can feel like there's no joy left in anything we once loved.

To combat the January blues, Small Luxury Hotels of the World asked 2,000 Brits to pick their favourite "little luxuries" - small things that help to make their day feel a little brighter - from a list curated by the survey team.

And their choices prove that you don't have to max out your credit card or head to the pub in order to treat yourself. In fact, many of them are free.

The list contains everything from a long soak in the bath to more surprising additions, including buying a posh loaf of bread or receiving handwritten mail.

Even something as trivial as a proper cup of tea is seen as a special treat that brightens up the afternoon for many of the individuals surveyed.
