This gift guide is all about luxury and timeless tradition.
This is what you need (scroll to the bottom for links):
Having a matching set is an easy way to convey a traditional tone. It’s not eclectic, it’s not avante garde. It’s reassuring and pleasant. And you know everything will match!
I love the warm but not brassy tone of this faceted stainless steel set from Kassatex. It would look beautiful on a Calacatta marble countertop.
This Frog Prince is from MacKenzie-Childs, which to me is one of the defining moments of the ‘80s. You might not know this, but the ‘80s are having a moment - they’re back! (in an updated way).
Enjoy the fun, loud, over-the-top exuberance of the ‘80s with this lidded (because who likes to look at clutter?) dish. It’s best as a gift because really, who could spend $200 on a 6” dish for themselves? I don’t know, but I’m tempted.
Jo Malone is a great brand to give as a gift. The packaging is beautiful and the scents are universally appealing.
This bath oil is the perfect thing to keep your skin smooth after a long soak. Comes in 7 wonderful scents.
I love having pictures around the house, and see no reason to not have a few in the bathroom. Styling a bathroom counter elevates the space above the ordinary and makes spending time there more enjoyable.
Silver frames are a great thing to collect. They look great together, they can be endlessly re-arranged, and they age well.
If you want to make your bathroom feel like it’s in a boutique hotel (not everyone does, but I do!), then adding a tray full of soft guest towels is a great way to start.
This graphic version is so much fun, and would make a great housewarming gift (filled with these and wrapped in ribbon, of course!).
What flower could be more traditional than red roses? And they just happen to look great with a cream and wood color scheme. A small vase fits on even the smallest countertop, a just bit of color is enough to enliven any bathroom.
Candles always create a romantic and traditional mood. Just be sure to use them occasionally or they do get dusty! These hurricane style holders are great for resisting a splash or two.
PS, if you do love candles, don’t miss a trip to the Yankee Candle Village Store in Deerfield, Mass. Make your own candles and visit their scaled Christmas train village!
8. Eye Cream
If you love the cream walls and mid-toned wood cabinets look, you are most likely not a Millenial (guess what, I’m not either!).
Give a gift of pretty eye cream (or ask for one). It’s decorative, it’s functional, it’s a must do. And why not choose one with as pretty packaging as this?
9. Bath Brush
If you love the benefits of dry brushing or just like a good scrub to get clean, a well constructed bath brush (this one is made of treated water resistant bamboo and boar bristles) is a stylish bath related gift to give.
Did you know that dry brushing sheds dry skin cells and improves circulation and lymphatic drainage? It’s not as good as a daily massage, but I’ll take it.
This is a traditional soap of historic pedigree. President Eisenhower used it in the white house (1953-1961). Plus, it makes a rich and smooth lather that leaves your face clean and sweet smelling.
