Bathroom Accessories For A Housewarming Gift? Here Are 5 Neat Ideas

While you might not be inclined to think of a bathroom accessory as a housewarming gift, you might want to rethink that notion. Accessories for the bathroom are necessary for anyone moving into a new home, and they make practical gifts that are sure to be appreciated. Why not ditch the boring toaster idea in favor for something that might not be seen coming and going? If you are stuck for ideas, here are 5 accessories to add functionality to any bathroom or powder room:

1. A Lighted Cosmetic Mirror

Consider a wall mounted mirror or a more simple tabletop or portable design. Either way, you have options to consider. For instance, many lighted makeup mirrors have two sides, including a magnifying mirror. They typically swivel as well. You might choose an LCD lighted mirror or one that incorporates incandescent or fluorescent light bulbs. The LCD offers a more "natural" light.

2. A Bathroom Accessory Set

This is a more common gift idea, and one that is very practical. Bathroom accessory sets often consist of a soap dish, soap dispenser, toothbrush holder, tissue box and tumbler. Some sets also include a wastepaper basket. There are so many designs and colors being manufactured for these sets, making it easy to complement most any bathroom decor. If you are unsure of what color to choose, why not consider a wicker style or rustic look, or simply go for a neutral color.

3. A Multi-Shelf Folding Storage Tower or Corner Caddy

This is an ideal housewarming gift for a large or medium sized bathroom. It's most commonly seen in natural wood, although laminate may also be an option. The shelves may hold towels or toiletries. It also folds and can be stored away when not being used. A corner caddy is a good bet for smaller bathrooms, as it sits nice and snug in the corner of the room.

4. An Aluminum Holder for the Blow Dryer

Anyone struggling for a tidy spot to hold their handheld hair dryer will appreciate this gift. Constructed of durable metal, it mounts on the wall. It holds most blow dryers as well as many styles of flat irons or curling irons. Great gift idea!

5. Towel Ring and Towel Bar Metal Bathroom Accessory Set

This set can be used and appreciated for any bathroom. Most sets are made with a stylish chrome finish. Some sets also feature a handy bathrobe hook for hanging bathrobes. Choose a set that comes complete with the hanging hardware.
