Trashcans Make Useful Gifts

5L brushed stainless steel step trash can.I know trash cans are not usually what people think of when they are looking for a gift, but they are very useful. Especially for young adults or anyone just starting their own household. Or someone who lost all their things in a fire.

A really nice one like this 5L brushed stainless steel step trash can, would make a wonderful housewarming gift.

I would have loved to be given one of these when I got my first apartment. We didn’t have anything, and I was scrounging things from all my family and friends and flea markets.

For a long time we only had a couple of really ugly buckets. They worked, but they were not really nice.

The trash can and the bucket that goes in it.I love this step trash can. It has a bucket inside with a handle so you can just lift that out to dump the trash. You don’t even have to put a trash bag in, unless you want to.

I really like the step function. The trash stays hidden, until you step on it to open it. The lid also keeps any smells inside the can.

It is easy to use. Just step on the lever and the top pops up.

I have two of these. The smaller one is in my guest bath. The bigger one in the main bath.

They do make even larger ones, for those who need something bigger. In my case there are usually only two of us making trash so we don’t need anything really big.

These work just fine.

It looks really nice. Very shiny.

The shower head in my shower stall.My husband  installed it in less than 5 minutes and got right in the shower to try it out.

Shower head with handheld on.He really liked it. I had told him before he got in there that if he didn’t like it we could take it back out, and let my parents try it. That is not gonna happen. If they want to try it they will have to come over here.

He loved the different settings. There are a LOT of different combos, so everyone in the family should be able to find a setting they like.

Want A Relaxing Aromatic Bath?

Picture of the box of Angele Bath Bombs.These Bath Bombs from Angèle are wonderful.

They fizz! A lot. And by a lot I mean for about a minute. I tried to take a video but my phone kept freezing up. I did get some pictures.

All of the Bath Bombs smell wonderful, and that is with the wrapper on. I left the box out on the table for a day or so because it made the room smell nice.

My husband choose this one for me to use first. He liked the smell of it.

Bath Bomb before it gets thrown into my bathtub.So I started the bath and unwrapped the bomb and dropped it in there. It did look sort of like an explosion. The water started bubbling like a boiling pot. It was neat.

Picture of the bath bomb in my tub.

The fizzing lasted for a while.


Picture of the bath bomb fizzing in the middle of my tub.

I managed to get in the tub before it stopped. The fizzing feels good too.

These Bath Bombs are huge. As you can see the water turned pink. And the whole bathroom smelled great. It made me smell good too, for quite a while afterward. My husband liked it.

It will do your skin good too. They contain Coconut oil, Shea butter, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid, Mediterranean sea salt, witch hazel, & natural mica colorants. When you get out of the bath your skins feels soft and moist and it stays that way for a while.

I loved soaking in the tub with these.

The box comes with six different scents:

Bubbly (champagne fragrance with bath tea & roses)

Balmy Beach (ocean breeze fragrance & sea salt)

Chillax! (eucalyptus & spearmint oils)

Dulce Colada (strawberry fragrance & coconut oil)

La Bomba (pink grapefruit fragrance)

Lavender Tea (lavender fragrance & bath tea)

This Gift Box would make a wonderful gift for any woman.

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts Review

Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts.The Adovia Dead Sea Bath Salts are really wonderful to put in the water when soaking in a hot bathtub.

The salts contain more than 26 essential minerals that are good for the skin and body.

The minerals in these bath salts can help provide relief for Psoriasis, Eczema, and Arthritis symptoms.

Soaking in them is definitely good for feet that have painful bunions and ganglion cysts. I have both those problems, as well as arthritis that makes my joints hurt really bad sometimes. Soaking in a hot tub with Dead Sea Salts helped more than with Epsom salts, which is not really surprising as dead sea salts have more minerals.

Soaking in them also makes your skin feel really great.

These salts also come in a resealable pouch, that is easy to open, and reseal. You get quite a bit of them. That one pouch should last me a month or so (depending on often I want to soak, ya know).

Contains no additives, colors, or scents.  The salts are fine grained and they do dissolve quickly. I had no residue left in the bottom of the bathtub.

You can buy these Dead Sea Bath Salts and on and you can connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Google+. Also check out the Gopure Naturals page on Facebook.

Feels like Playing In The Rain – Aquagenix Razor® Rainfall Shower Head

Aquagenix Razor® Rainfall Shower HeadDo you remember playing in the rain when you were little? I do. It was really fun.

You can get almost the same feeling from showering under this Aquagenix Razor® Rainfall Shower Head. sent me one, and it arrived yesterday. It took my hubby about 5 minutes to get it out of the box, and into our shower stall.

Aquagenix® Razor Mega Size Rainfall Shower Head.

A few minutes after that I was in there washing my hair.

I love this shower head! It was a lot bigger than I expected from the pictures. The water falls on my entire head now, which makes it a lot easier to rinse the shampoo out of my hair.

The arm can be raised up or lowered, so even someone really tall could manage a shower with it. The head moves a bit too so you can direct the water to the side if you need to.

I love the look of the Aquagenix® Razor Mega Size Rainfall Shower Head too. It is shiny and sleek looking. Much nicer than our old plastic shower head. You can get a square one instead of the round one that I chose.

You can also buy the heads and the arm separately.

I wouldn’t mind having another one for our guest bathroom.

Towel Sets Make Great Gifts

3 Piece Egyptian Cotton Towel Set.This 3 Piece Egyptian Cotton Towel Set from eLuxurySupply is really nice.

They come in many different colors. I would have preferred the sage, but messed up when ordering, and didn’t notice the wrong color choice till too late to change the order.

The light blue ones are lovely though.


They are thick and soft, and seem to be really well made.

My Towels.One of the things I really like about these is the size. Even the wash cloth is bigger than my others. The bath towel is 30″ x 55″,  the hand towel 20″ x 30″, and the wash cloth 13″ x 13″.

I would love to have at least 3 full sets of these towels, in 3 different colors. One set for the front bath, one set for the master, and one extra.

The towel is plenty big enough to wrap around you when getting out of the shower, and it also makes a great turban, for putting up your wet hair. I used this towel the last couple of times washing my hair and didn’t have any drips at all! It is big enough that my hair doesn’t fall out of it.

The towel is absorbent and works well for drying off after a bath.

And it is pretty.

These are 600 GSM (grams per meter) two ply terry cloth construction, and are machine washable. I have washed mine a few times and they are holding up really well.  No loose threads or anything, and they still feel soft, and haven’t faded.

Shandali Travel Towel Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Shandali Travel TowelsThis is a nice towel. The one I got is a regular size towel at 24″ x 48″. It was still big enough to fit around my husband :).

It is absorbent. Very absorbent. I used it on a couple of spills in the kitchen. It picked up the mess better than the regular dish towels and it dries quickly.

I really like that it is thin and can be rolled up pretty tight. I could stuff it in my purse to carry if needed.

Rolled up Shandali Travel Towel.You can see I didn’t really get it rolled up as tight as I could have…it could be folded up smaller if necessary. That makes it really easy to take with you to the pool or to the gym.

Or if you are a busy mom with lots of baby stuff to carry around it will not take up much room in your bag and you will have it for those emergencies (spilled juice or leaky diapers) that always seem to happen at the worst possible times.

The towel is micro-fibre made of 80% Polyester and 20% Nylon and is really soft. It can be machine washed and dried. Mine has been though the washing machine and dryer once and came out just fine.

I would have liked to have more choices of colors…but the colors they do have are nice.

Deluxe LED Fogless Shower Mirror With Squeegee By ToiletTree Products Review

Deluxe LED Fogless Shower Mirror With Squeegee By ToiletTree Products Review

LED fogless shower mirrow by toilettreeWhen I saw the pictures of the ToiletTree Fogless Shower Mirror I wanted one. I just thought it looked really nice and would be great to have.

And when the chance came to review one I jumped at it. And I was not disappointed.

ToiletTree LED Fogless Shower Mirror.The mirror looked as nice when I got it as it did in the pictures.

It is actually a bit bigger than I thought it would be.  The mirror part is about 8 inches wide and 6 inches high and the lights are around the mirror. The frame and lights add about an inch to it.

The lights are really neat. You have two levels of brightness to choose from and the mirror itself looks really pretty with the lights on.

Of course they are not there just to look pretty but it is nice! They do the job of helping you see what you are doing too. It can really make a big difference if you don’t have a regular light in the shower area.

Our shower is pretty small and the main bathroom light is on the other side of the room so the LED lights are great to have.  And it included the batteries!! I really liked that.

The mirror has a resevoir on the back that you fill with warm water to keep it from fogging up. The mirror just slides right off the frame real easy for filling and dumping the resovoir.

The mirror also tilts on the frame so that you can adjust it for different people. Since my husband is taller than I am that means we didn’t have to argue about who it was for! We can both use it.

It has a built in shelf to hold a razor blade or other small items you might need(tweezers). And it comes with a squeegee so you can clean the water off when you need to.

The mirror is made of shatter proof acrylic and the frame is rust proof.

It comes with a 30 day, no risk, unconditional 100% Money-Back Guarantee. If not completely satisfied you can return it (with dated proof of purchase-so keep that!) and get your money back.
