Your Wedding Gift List creates the perfect opportunity to make your newlywed house feel like home. From the bedroom to the kitchen, the living room to the garden and even to the bathroom, the pieces you add will be the start of a happily married life together.
One of my favourite pass times is to run a soapy hot bath filled with bubbles and scented lotions. I could literally spend hours relaxing in the tub immersed in a good book! This has inspired this bathroom collection of goodies which I hope will get you in the mood to sit back and relax, maybe even treat yourself to a long soak later this evening.
The bathroom basics are a great place to start when adding things to your Gift List. But rather than keep it simple, why not opt for luxurious towels like these Personalised Cotton Towels by Monogrammed Linen Shop. There are three sizes to choose from and you can choose the embroidered message – anything from a name to a quote. Or the Personalised Mr & Mrs Wedding Gift Towels by Deborah Sparks are a romantic option that will remind you of your special day each and every time you use them. And as you’ll have a gorgeous set of towels, you’ll want a gorgeous place to display them. Orchid have a stylish Chinese Ladder, ideal for draping towels, or there’s the Vintage Pine Towel Rail by My Little Vintage Attic: hand-painted with a distressed finish making a gorgeous vintage find. But if your bathroom is a little short for space, then these Mr and Mrs Hangup Hooks by BODIE and FOU are a quirky and modern alternative.
Another necessity is a toilet roll holder like this Aged Cream Metal Toilet Roll Holder by Country Cream. It’s dainty design and aged look would complement any bathroom surround. An amusing alternative is the Cricket Loo Roll Holder by The Oak & Rope Company, perfect for any sport enthusiasts. It can be engraved with anything of your choice, or a few they recommend like, ‘Another Great Innings, Better Out Than In or Mark – 50 not out’.
Storing your bathroom essentials, like shampoos and soaps, is a great way to know what belongs to whom. I adore this Personalised Crate – Bathroom Box by Plantabox with so many colours to choose from and even the option to add wheels, it’s ideal. Or you could opt to place all your goodies on a Bathhouse Shelf like this one from The Painted Broom Company in a cream shaker style.
Once all the basics have been covered you can choose some lovely, fun pieces to make your bathroom all your own. From decorating your walls with this ‘Soap and Laughter’ Wall Lettering Quote by Aijographics to jazzing up your shower with this Heart-Shaped Shower Head by The Heart Store, the possibilities are endless. Here are a few things I wouldn’t be able to resist:
