Having just a few holiday essentials in there will make your home a joyful place to be - in every space.

Twinkle Lights and a Small Wreath Above the Vanity

Where in a bathroom could you always use extra lights anyway, no matter the season? Above the mirror! Adding a string of twinkle lights above your sink ensures you'll always see them - and, that whenever you look in the mirror, you'll have the benefit of a magical wintry glow. Pair it with a small wreath for a cozy Christmas feeling, even in a tiny space.

Bathroom Centerpiece Sachet Idea

Looking for a way to add a little elegance to your bathroom - and possibly some wonderful Christmassy aromas too? Put together a little sprig of wintry garden items - dried citrus, rosemary, fir, herbs, or even a small gathering of ornaments - and place them in a vase or a white ceramic jar. Then, simply place that on your sink for an easy, statement-making piece. It's a tiny touch that will go a long way!


Garland 'Round the Bathtub

Want to bedeck your tub with holiday cheer? This simple step will have a huge impact! Simply take a long garland with fir, berries, ribbons, or any other decor pieces that you'd like to introduce into your home. Then, line it around the outside of your bathtub! Every time you use your tub, you'll have a little holiday happiness to spare.


Christmas Tree in the Bathroom

If you have the space, why not go all out? Imagine taking a bath in your tub and being within touching distance of a Christmas tree - it sounds totally luxurious, right? That feeling of magical abundance can be yours! If you don't have enough space for a full tree, consider getting a smaller tree to place on a table or on the floor for a similar feel at a more manageable scale.


When you're thinking about decorating your home this Christmas, don't forget your bathroom. It'll show you and your guests that you really care about every aspect of your merry, merry holiday season.
