Wooden bath caddy

Shop: Reclaimer Design
Price: $44.95 – $54.95 (depending on style)
Buy it for: That treat-yo-self friend. It’s pretty critical to confirm they do in fact have a bath (instead of just a stand-up shower) and they actually use it. I personally have not taken a sit down bath since I was a child.
