Making my apartment more like Mom & Dad's

Finally moved to a big(ger), cheap(er) apartment in Brooklyn with my boyfriend after years in a tiny apartment in Manhattan with my best friend. Now that I have more space and disposal cash, I want to make my apartment a real home. Suggestions, please?

Over the past few years I have noticed that when I stay at my parents' house, it feels like I am living in the lap of luxury, simply because they have THINGS, and room to PUT those things. So if I want to make a cake - guess what, there is a cake mix in the pantry and the appropriate pots and pans to do so!
I am not looking for decorating suggestions, but rather, those little items that aren't necessary for survival but give you comfort. Examples might be a shower radio, a universal remote, a ceiling fan. What do you have in your home that is luxurious or utilitarian that I don't have? (There is a LOT I don't have!)
