Winter months mean cooler weather and longer showers. We also tend to hibernate and spend more time at home. To make the whole bathroom experience a little more comfortable, but without resorting to underfloor heating and towel heaters, here are some winter bathroom essentials you could benefit from…
1. THICK, FLUFFY TOWELS
When is the last time you treated yourself to new bath towels? If your towels are more scratchy than they are soft, it’s time to upgrade. There is something extra comforting in the winter months, about getting out of a hot shower, and wrapping yourself in a luxurious towel. This also goes for hand towels and bath mats. Upgrade the quality and you upgrade your whole bathroom experience.
2. STYLISH BATHROOM PRODUCTS
Having nice products in the bathroom is a luxury – and an achievable one at that. You will enjoy spending time there and its a nice touch if you have guests visiting.
I recommend: A Man Mail box, full of goodies for you AND your bathroom
3. BATHROOM TUNES
Shower radios are out (a long time ago actually) but do you know what’s in? Waterproof bluetooth speakers. Accompany your long hot showers with music from your iPhone, iPad or iPod.
I recommend: BOOM Swimmer Waterproof Wireless Speaker
4. ROBE UP
What to do when you jump out of the shower and want to stay warm? Robe up. Having a lush dressing gown hanging at the ready in your bathroom, will help you transition from shower to bedroom in comfort.

5. NEW SHAVER
Many men love technology and gadgets. It’s a fact! And unless you’re a hipster, then you shave. Whether clean shaving or stubble or wet or dry, there are some pretty impressive shavers available that will change the way you shave forever.
I recommend: Phillips 9000 series
6. WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH
It happens to the best of us, and more often than not, when we are run down, a nasty virus can take hold. Colds, flus and muscular pain are the worst, so to be prepared to beat winter sickness so you can get on with life, I highly recommend stocking your bathroom some pain relief.
I recommend: Nurofen
7. LIGHT IT UP
If you ask me, every bathroom should have a candle, whether you are male or female. It adds ambience, a nice scent and is especially nice when you are entertaining. Worried it may be a little feminine for you? Never fear, there are some fantastic man candles on the market.
