Festive touches for your bathroom


Now that it’s nearly December (where did November go?!) I think I can legitimately go OTT with Christmas blog posts! In fact, I’ve just added a few festive touches to my home while taking advantage of all the high street sales and online discounts. Yes, this week I picked up some festive accessories for my bathroom – I even found a Christmas pudding bath mat, can you believe it?! From towels to air freshener, there are plenty of options out there to inject a little bit of Christmas joy into the smallest room in the house so have a look at these suggestions and let me know what you think.festive bathroom touches accessories towels-4 festive bathroom touches accessories towels-2Accessories Invest in a couple of Christmas towels to hang in your bathroom during the month of December – I found mine from a big selection of festive home accessories at BHS. Guests will enjoy drying their hands on an embroidered Christmas hand towel and the whole room will feel more festive as a result. Another accessory that is often over-looked is the rubber duck, and I’ve seen a few snowman and Santa ducks around this year (my bestie even has a duck nativity set!) so when you’re doing you Christmas shopping, keep an eye out for seasonal bath toys! The little ones will thank you for it as it will make bath-time more fun (and exciting!) over the coming month and the ducks will look very Christmassy sat on the side of your bath when not in use!festive bathroom touches accessories towels-5 festive bathroom touches accessories towels festive bathroom touches accessories towels-11Products By simply changing a couple of your usual products for festive editions your bathroom will feel (and smell!) more festive. Try using a cinnamon-scented bubble bath and pick up a glittering bath bomb to make your Christmas bathing even more luxurious. There are plenty of scented hand-soaps available in the shops at the moment (I got this gingerbread man from The Factory Shop) so choose one with a cute festive bottle to bring a touch of festive fun when guests visit your bathroom during December. You can even buy loo-roll printed with Christmas cartoons, can you believe it?! festive bathroom touches accessories towels-3festive bathroom touches accessories towels-10Scent Everyone wants to have a clean and fresh smelling bathroom and that’s where festive scents come in. Not only is pine one of the main ingredients of most bathroom cleaning products, but you can also invest in a couple of scented items that will add even more of a festive fruitiness to your room. How about choosing a spiced air-freshener for the festive period or lighting a cranberry and cinnamon scented candle when you sink into your bubble bath?

Lighting While it’s NOT a great idea to put up electric fairy lights in the bathroom (seriously dangerous!), you can make the room sparkle with festiveness by simply lighting a few candles. This will give your bathroom a festive ambience, making each bath you take even more relaxing and magical in the run up to Christmas. What could be better than unwinding and de-stressing with a candlelit bath after a long day of present shopping! Sit inexpensive tea-lights in festive patterned candle holders, or light a candle inside a lantern with star cut-outs to will beam a flickering night sky onto your bathroom ceiling as you relax in the bath.

What do you think of these ideas for adding a little Christmasiness into your bathroom this December? Tweet me with your own ideas for bringing festive magic into the bathroom and we’d love to hear your suggestions on the best scents and products to use so please get in touch!
