Calling all bookworms! If you adore getting lost in a new book *and* sinking into a bath filled with suds, then you’re going to love National Read in the Bathtub Day. Honestly, what sounds better on a chilly winter night than indulging in a bath and a book? And to really reward your hardworking self with some pampering, turn your bathroom into a mini spa you’ll love spending time in on this (and every) day. Read on for 25 super cute, bath-friendly products that will make your soak so relaxing.
The first thing you’ll need for this fun day are cute items that you can wear pre- and post-soak. Rocking adorable pieces that make you feel good will make your night that much more cozy. Step into some plush slippers and add a robe or bath wrap in a calming hue. Next, make sure your gorgeous locks are protected with a patterned shower cap that won’t cramp your style.
COOL GADGETS + BOOKS
Of course, no National Read in the Bathtub Day is complete without an e-reader or some old-fashioned paperbacks. Read about living your best life with Jen Sincero’s You Are a Badass, or learn how to simplify and get organized with Emily Ley’s Grace Not Perfection. But don’t stop there! Play soothing background music on a bluetooth speaker, and to be super luxurious, use a compact towel warmer that’s perfect for cold winter nights.
