Tax Day strikes fear into the hearts of most Americans. After all, meeting with your accountant (or worse, figuring out those forms yourself) is about as much fun as a trip to the dentist. The upside? A sweet, sweet tax return. The average tax return in 2016 so far is $3,034 and we think it’s a great excuse to splurge on something wild for your home. These are the seven ways that we’d like to blow our check from Uncle Sam.

6. Ovis Hanging Chair, $2,800
After finally getting your tax return, you’re going to want to spend some time just hanging around. This chic and minimal chair will elevate the style of your space and give you a much-needed dose of relaxation.

On trend and just under the average tax return amount, this copper fire pit can be in your backyard just in time for summer.

1. Bone Inlay Four Poster Bed, $3,698 – $3,998
