From bath bombs and candles to bath salts and pillows, these gifts are designed to help create the ultimate relaxation experience and leave the recipient feeling pampered and rejuvenated.
Whether you're looking for a gift for a special occasion or just want to show someone you care, these bath gift ideas are sure to be a hit. So if you're ready to help someone you love relax and unwind in style, read on to find that perfect gift.
1. A luxurious bath bomb set
These can be filled with fragrant essential oils, Epsom salts, and other natural ingredients that can help soothe sore muscles and create a relaxing atmosphere.
In addition to providing a soothing and therapeutic experience, bath bombs can also add a touch of fun and whimsy to the bath. Many bath bombs are made with colorful, eye-catching designs, and some even include surprises like glitter or dried flowers.
I love these Beauty by Earth ones:
They're natural, organic, and USA-made, plus there's a scent for many different occasions ranging from Bedtime Ritual to Muscle Relief.
2. A bath tray or caddy
This can be a useful gift for someone who enjoys reading, catching up on Netflix, or sipping on a beverage in the bath. Look for a tray that is sturdy and wide enough to hold a book or tablet, as well as space for a cup or glass.
I especially love this one from VaeFae:
It's made from beautiful solid teak, has a book or tablet holder built in, and even features a dedicated wine glass holder if that's your thing! It also has a wide expansion range so should fit most bathtubs.
3. A set of scented candles
How relaxing can a bath really be if it's not by candlelight? Candles are essential in helping to create a relaxing ambiance while adding a touch of aromatherapy to the bath experience. Look for candles made with natural essential oils, soy wax, and reusable packaging for a more eco-friendly option.
This gorgeous set fits all these criteria and also comes already packaged in a giftable vintage box:
The scents are mimurhyl, fresh rose, cedar teakwood, sweet grapefruit, rose & garnetberry, and fig.
4. A bath pillow
Taking a bath can be a relaxing and therapeutic experience, but it can also be hard on the head and neck if you don't have proper support. A bath pillow provides that support, allowing the recipient to rest their head and neck comfortably while they soak in the tub.
Bath pillows are typically made of a waterproof and quick-drying material, so they can be used repeatedly without getting moldy or musty. They are also typically designed to be lightweight and compact, so they can easily be stored when not in use.
I love this luxury option from Savvy Comfort:
Overall, a bath pillow is a practical yet indulgent gift for someone who loves to take long, relaxing baths and is looking for a way to make their experience more comfortable.
5. A set of bath salts
A little more unusual than the classic bath bomb, salts can be an excellent gift for someone who loves to soak in the tub. Look for a variety pack that includes different scents and ingredients, such as Epsom salt, Dead Sea salt, and essential oils.
This set of assorted salts will create an oasis of calm right in your own home:
It comes with six therapeutic formulations designed to restore, cleanse, relax, balance, purify, and soothe you. Created with natural Epsom salt, each one helps to replenish your skin and body with minerals, whilst also encouraging deep relaxation.
6. A bubble bath set
Bubble bath can be a super fun gift for someone who loves to take long, bubbly baths. Look for a set that includes a few extras in addition to bubble bath for a very cute gift. Loofahs, lotions, and shower gels are all great too.
This gift box from Seas the Day fits the bill:
It has a whole range of bath goodies as well as two different kinds of natural bubble bath.
7. A luxurious bathrobe
Being both practical and indulgent, a bathrobe might just be the ideal gift. After a long bath, having a comfortable and absorbent robe to wrap up in can really provide that extra touch of luxury.
Look for a bathrobe made of a soft, absorbent material, such as terry cloth or microfiber. These materials are highly absorbent and can help soak up excess water, making getting dry less of a chore.
My current favorite is this one from Classic Turkish Towels:
It's made from soft and absorbent 100% Turkish terry cotton, that feels practical yet also luxurious.
In addition to its practicality, this can also be a stylish gift. Bathrobes are available in a lot of different colors and styles, so choose one that matches your recipient's personal taste.
8. A set of bath toys
Buying for someone with little ones? Toys can be a great gift for someone who has kids who love to play in the bath. Look for a set that includes fun toys such as rubber duckies, squirt toys, or bath crayons.
These eco-friendly silicone ones from Toy Appétit are both cute and practical:
They also come in a gift box so you won't need to do extra packaging.
9. A bath mat
This can be a practical yet stylish gift for someone who loves decor as much as they love baths. Look for one that is either made of a soft, absorbent material and has a non-slip backing, or alternatively I think a wood or stone bath mat can make an excellent unusual eco-friendly gift.
This natural diatomaceous earth stone mat is a great example:
It's anti-slip, easy clean, and has a great minimalist look. It even comes with a free matching soap dish.
10. A set of bath towels
A high-quality set of bath towels will never go unappreciated. Receiving a set of plush, absorbent towels can be a treat for your recipient and add a touch of luxury to their daily routine.
Look for towels made of a soft, absorbent material such as a thick, high-quality cotton. This set from White Classic would be perfect:
They are soft, thick, and luxurious.
11. A set of bath brushes
Bath brushes are a useful tool for exfoliating and invigorating the skin. They help to slough off dead skin cells and improve circulation, leaving the skin feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed.
These brushes are typically made with natural bristles, such as boar's hair or sisal, which are gentle on the skin yet effective at exfoliating. Many are also typically designed with a long handle, making them easy to use and reach all areas of the body.
This set includes a variety of brushes for the body, face, and feet:
They come in different sizes for reaching every part of the body.
12. A set of bath oils
Bath oils are a luxurious gift for someone who loves to add a touch of aromatherapy to their bath. They feel more grown up than bubble bath or bombs, but provide many similar benefits.
Look for ones made with natural essential oils, such as lavender or eucalyptus, which can help relax the mind and body.
This award-winning set from Aromatherapy Associates makes a very special gift:
The bottles are blends, themed by the desired effect rather than a single scent. Things like Deep Relax, Revive Morning, and De-Stress Mind give you an option for every mood.
13. A set of bath soaps
It may seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many bath lovers appreciate some new soaps to try. Look for soaps made with natural ingredients, such as goat's milk or shea butter, which are gentle on the skin.
This Natural Amor set includes five best-selling 100% natural handmade soap bars in a stylish gift box:
These keep it simple scent-wise with rose, lavender, coffee, orange, oatmeal. The focus is on high quality natural ingredients.
14. A set of bath sponges
Bath sponges make a great gift for someone who loves to exfoliate their skin in the bath. Look for sponges made of natural materials, such as loofah or sea sponge, which are gentler on the skin plus a more eco-friendly option.
This natural Egyptian loofah bundle is perfect:
They'll look great in your loved one's bathroom, too!
15. A portable speaker
Many people find that listening to music or other calming audio can help them relax and unwind, and a portable speaker can make it easy to bring that experience into the bathroom.
This is also a good gift because it is versatile and can be used in other settings beyond the bathroom. Your recipient can take it with them on the go or use it at home to listen to music, podcasts, or audiobooks in any room.
Look for a portable speaker that is waterproof and has good battery life, so it can be used in the bathroom without worrying about getting damaged or running out of power.
My favorite portable speaker (for audio quality) is currently the JBL FLIP 5:
It's totally waterproof so it's a perfect bathroom speaker. Combine this with a bath caddy for an amazing complementary gift!
16. A bubble spa bath mat
A massaging spa mat is a great way to bring a little spa-like luxury to bathtime. These mats feature a variety of air jets and massage settings that can help to relieve muscle tension and promote circulation.
This one also includes a handy aroma clip for bath oils:
This is a great gift for someone who would love a spa at home but doesn't have the space for one.
17. Some bath slippers
Bath slippers are sure to make your loved one's soak time even more relaxing and luxurious. They can slip them on and feel the cushiony comfort under their feet as they step out of the tub.
Look for non-slip soles to keep them steady when they're feeling all floaty and relaxed after a bath. These soft foam cloud slides are practical, stylish, and oh-so-comfy:
Trust me, once they try these bad boys out, they'll never want to take a bath without them again!
