For many of us, taking a long, hot shower or bath is an easy and affordable way to relax. You might not be able to spend a day at the spa or salon, but you can put on a comforting playlist, sink into a tub full of bubbles and transport yourself somewhere else for a while.

Of course, it always helps to have a few extra-special items on hand to establish that serene, stress-free environment. Here are 12 products that will make your bathroom feel like a sanctuary whenever you need a little pampering.


Add a colorful splash to your tub with this bath salt soak and transport yourself to a relaxing spa. Handmade in Texas by the shop Live by Being, available on Amazon Handmade, this bath soak is a blend of Himalayan pink and Dead Sea salts and organic essential oils that hydrates the skin and makes for a subtly scented, relaxing soak. The soak comes in a reusable glass jar and will last for 4-6 uses.


Support your neck and shoulders with this mesh non-slip pillow so you can comfortably soak for longer during your next bath. The pillow features a handy hook so you can hang dry the pillow when you're done.


Give yourself permission to indulge in a long hot bath — complete with all of your favorite little luxuries — using this expandable caddy. The body is crafted from sustainable bamboo with expandable sides that can stretch to up to 40 inches to fit almost any tub. And did we mention that the sleek design features a built-in stand for propping up your book or tablet?

$16.95 (Set of 3)

Don't just reach for any old washcloth — make yourself feel like you're at a spa and use these organic cotton cloths. One side is made of textured muslin cotton that cleanses pores, gently polishes skin and boosts circulation, and the reverse side is a smooth microfiber that's perfect for wiping away makeup.


Set the vibe in your bathroom with a Bluetooth water-resistant shower speaker that works with Androids and iPhones. It features a suction cup for easy mounting, and its portability means it's the perfect speaker to bring on trips, to the pool or beach.


If your tub at home is on the smaller side, this handy drain cover will allow you to turn it into a soaker tub by giving you a few more inches for water. Just suction it over the overflow drain cover, and enjoy your soak. (Just be sure not to overflow the tub!)


If you're all about aromatherapy, then you'll love this bottle of De-Stress Shower Oil. The silky oil-to-milk formula works with the shower's steam to deliver calming notes of frankincense, petitgrain and chamomile. It's the perfect way to reset after a stressful workday or when you need a break from the kids.


Don't bath salts look even better without the busy labels? Put your mind at ease while putting your collection on display with this timeless storage caddy. The beautiful brass-finished unit offers six identical glass bottles for your salts and comes with hanging hardware so you can attach it to the wall or tub.

Crate & Barrel

If you've ever wanted to know what it would be like to walk on a cloud, this is it. Give your feet a soft place to land with this fluffy tufted-cotton bath mat. The round puffs will cushion your feet as you enter and exit the tub and help prevent any surprise slips.

Set the tone as soon as you walk into the room by lighting this incredible "Be The Change" candle. The soy wax comes hand-poured in a reusable amber jar and features delicate notes of coconut and bamboo. Best of all? A percentage of your purchase will be donated to a Black-led organization fighting for racial justice, so you can relax while knowing that you're making a difference.

Gently exfoliate and soothe your skin before bed with this aptly-named Swedish Dream Soap. Each bar has a subtle oceanic scent to transport you to the beach and is enriched with organic ingredients, like sea salt and seaweed.


Keep your favorite subscriptions close while you soak (without sacrificing floor space to a bin) by opting for this chic two-in-one magazine holder. The grid-style design lets you see what's available for reading and can easily be mounted to the wall or vanity.


Prepare to feel the tension in your neck and shoulders melt away when you use this heatable cotton-linen wrap. The inside is packed with lentil fill to apply gentle pressure to your skin, while the outside features moon phases to help you reach a more dream-like state.


Not to sound dramatic, but you haven't lived until you've stepped out of the tub and into a warm, fluffy towel. Treat yourself to a truly extravagant experience (on a budget!) with this free-standing towel warmer. A single temperature setting provides optimal heat every time, while the compact shape allows for easy storage in an empty corner or under the vanity.
