You might not be a millionaire (who is?), but don’t let that stop you from engaging in one prolific indulgence in the city at least once a week (or once a month or year, whatever works best for you and your budget).

Every once in awhile, you have to treat yo’self (do people still say that?) and Mississauga has a ton of luxurious options worth looking into.

Here’s a list of five high-end or fancy (or both) indulgences that will make you feel like Donald Trump back when he was just an obnoxious real estate king with golden houses who we could all chuckle at (no one is laughing now).

5) Learn How to Sail

If you don’t know how to sail, do not just rent or borrow a boat and try your luck on Lake Ontario. We’re serious. A tipping sailboat is terrifying and not worth the years capsizing will take off your life. If you want to live like the other, richer half lives — learn how to wile away sunny days on a relaxing sailboat. If you’re serious about learning, check out the Port Credit Yacht Club and enroll in some lessons for the baller price of $750+ HST. What’s fancier than a yacht club? Not much!

 4) Enjoy a Luxurious Spa Package

Spa days are absolutely glorious and everyone deserves one. If you want to go all out, you can purchase $360 Revival Package at the Sherwood Village Spa in Mississauga. This fancy package includes a customized facial with eye and lip treatment, a deluxe manicure, a signature pedicure, an aromatherapy exfoliating body glow and relaxation massage. If you want to spend even more, you can try the “Om for the Soul” package at the Glenerin Inn that includes a sea salt body polish, one hour warm lavender massage, oxygenating pumpkin facial, aromatherapy manicure and pedicure and spa lunch for $410.

 3) Buy Something Crazy at Holt Renfrew

Holt Renfrew, the ultimate high-end shopping destination that recently opened in Square One, offers a ton of luxurious goods that can simultaneously break the bank and lift your spirit (if only for a moment). If you’re treating yourself, you might want to purchase a Tom Ford cologne for $255-$650. If you’re a lady, you need some satin-pearl embellished point-toe pumps from Miu Miu for the low-low price of $970 

 2) Stay in a Luxurious Suite

If you want to live like a king, you’ll need a lot of space to do it (extra square footage is great for storing excess shopping bags full of Holt Renfrew loot). If you want to spend the night in a high-end suite, book the three bedroom + living room suite at the Meadowvale Hilton for roughly $600 or so a night. If you book this spacious suite, you can bring some friends and, if you’re feeling very flush, this $649.95 bottle of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Brut Gold champagne (click here to have it delivered to your house or local LCBO).

 1) Eat Extremely Expensive Steak

No millionaire eats anything less than the finest beef and you know what — you’re no different if you’re a millionaire in your heart. If you want to go wild, head to 17 Steakhouse to enjoy a Snake River Farms American Wagyu tenderloin steak for $180 (10 oz.) or striploin cut for $200 (16 oz.). The Japanese A5 Waguy steaks can be purchased at market price, if you want to roll the dice and order the best-of-the-best once you’re dining in one of the city’s glitziest restos. The resto also offers a $300 bottle of 2006 Cantine Benedetti. Oh, and if it’s wine you’re into, you might want to check out Ten as well, as they have a 2006 Etude from California that costs $192.
