Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A padded pillow so you can get really comfortable and settle in for the long haul.


    Promising review: "Don't let the pictures deceive you — this pillow is deceptively soft. I've used a lot of bath pillows over the years and this is by far my favorite. It's very robust and the suction cups are strong and don't slide around (it's best to use your fingernails to lift the suction cups off individually)." —Gary

    Get a two-panel pillow from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in three styles).

    2. A wine glass holder, because we all know what you're really doing in there for so long.


    Promising review: "I love this thing! The suction cup is hardcore and it holds all kinds of things, and it's small enough to throw in my backpack. I put my cocktail cup in it at the hotel pool and was the envy of other guests. Guess whose drink didn't get tossed out by accident...mine." —Flippy

    Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in six colors).

    3. A drain cover so you can fill your tub all the way to the tippy top.


    Promising review: "Can I give this thing 10 gold stars? I have a four foot bathtub (so small it should be illegal) so I used to bring a towel in the tub to cover myself just to keep warm because the water was so shallow. I've used this drain cover three times and now I literally bask in my Epsom salt baths. The silence is wonderful; I used to seethe at hearing the precious bath water drip-drop down the overflow drain. Buy it, hands down a peace preserver." —M. Smith

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49.

    4. A long-handled brush for getting those hard to reach places on your back without too much effort. Bath time is for relaxing, after all.


    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    5. A bathtub caddy so you can get set up with all the entertainment or ambience-setting items you need for an excellent five-hour bath.


    Promising review: "I can finally take time away from the kids and spend time reading a book or on my iPad. The caddy fit perfectly in my tub — it's adjustable and expandable to fit most. I am not sure how we all survived without it." —Stacy P.

    Get it from Amazon for $42.97.

    6. A pack of Magic Erasers to arm yourself before tackling the tough job of cleaning the tub. No one wants to soak in a gross tub.


    These melamine eraser sponges are super tough on stains, but won't damage the surface underneath said stain.

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It's unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!" —Catherine King

    Get a four pack from Amazon for $9.39.

    7. And some rust stain remover, because again — can't stress this enough — no one wants to sit in a gross, orange tub!

    Promising review: "Holy wizardry! Seriously it was more work to clean the mirror over the vanity than use this product. I definitely suggest wearing a mask or bandana and running the ventilation fan if spraying in an enclosed area. Great product!" —Jessica B

    Get it from Amazon for $7.19.

    8. An eye-covered shower curtain for people who like to bathe with an audience.

    Urban Outfitters

    9. A microfiber hair turban and towel so you can dry off super quickly. That means more time in the tub and less time dealing with the soggy aftermath.


    Promising review: "I have loved and used the Aquis Hair towel for YEARS and love all their new products and packaging. I scrub with their exfoliating shower towel, then dry off with this yummy waffle towel, and my skin looks as soft and silky as the hair towel leaves my hair. I love to give Aquis products as gifts, as friends always love them. They're a small luxury that everyone can afford." —mmb

    Get them from Amazon: the hair turban for $20.99 (available in eight colors) and the body towel for $28.99 (available in three colors).

    10. A jet cleaner to evict all that gross brown goo lurking just out of view.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff. I was skeptical at first. I am a huge germaphobe and this worked well enough for me to actually take a bath at my new place with the jets on!" —Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    11. A pair of fuzzy spa sandals that may help coax you out of the tub, because you can't stay in there all day.

    Reviewers say to size up!

    12. And a very fuzzy bath mat so your toes can only know comfort.


    This microfiber mat has a non-slip back and can be machine-washed!

    Promising review: "Love this so much! I bought this rug in three sizes, and they are EXTREMELY soft and easy to care for! In fact, I'm having trouble finding a sufficiently soft area rug for the master bedroom because we are both so spoiled by how soft these rugs are... If only they made them in larger sizes!" —Sj773

    Each box comes with two cups per bag of red rose buds and petals, blue lavender, marigold (calendula), and chamomile.

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic product with nice packaging. All four bags of flowers smelled amazing. I used the roses right away to make rose water toner and used the lavender to infuse water for a lavender candy. I can't wait to use the calendula in soap! The chamomile is delightfully potent. I love that the box came with a small bottle of lavender oil. I can always use that, so it was a nice bonus." —Monika G

    Get them from Amazon for $22.95+ (available in seven styles/numbers).

    15. A waterproof notepad for all your best shower/bath thoughts. No idea is worth getting out of the tub for!


    This notepad comes with super strong suction cups so it can adhere to any surface, as well as a pencil (also complete with it's own suction cup).

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical about buying this at first, but now that I got it and started using it? I can't figure out how I went so long without one!" —Kindle Customer

    This TP holder can hold up to seven rolls!

    Promising review: "This my second purchase of this product. It is so cute and sturdy that I am putting one in each bathroom! I was even able to put it together myself. Hangs on wall or stands alone. You will love it. A bit pricey for a toilet paper holder, but well worth the investment." —ranford2

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    17. A value pack of bath bombs for people who burn through those things like tissues.,

    Promising review: "I shared these bath bombs with my family and we all really enjoyed using them. They were pleasantly fragranced, provided long-lasting fizziness, and left the bathroom smelling lovely for hours. There is a light coating on it to control the fizz, making it last longer than other bath bombs. It also lightly colored the water, providing a beautiful, relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely purchase again!" —J. Condrey

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $13.99.

    18. A bath oil spray for an instant shot of hydration right after washing.


    Bonus: Most reviewers say they use this as an effective and good-smelling bug repellant!

    Promising review: "Every winter, this product saves my skin from being itchy and irritated. I always use it right after a shower and it absorbs quickly and leaves my skin very soft. Highly recommend." —Lauren

    It smells like lavender and comes with a fortune inside!

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99.

    20. A waterproof speaker with a suction cup to turn your bathtub into an exclusive dance club.


    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for... I just wanna sing in the dang shower to my hearts content. Glad that it comes with a little D-ring to hang it up, suction cups don't work in my shower. Excellent sound, easy to use, great value. My poor dog disagrees... is now subject to my singing." —emjoy75

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two colors).

    21. A super cushy robe to wear either before or after (or both?) entering the bath.


    Promising review: "Cozy, warm, and soft, just the right thickness to keep you comfy and not overheated. I've washed it twice and it's keeping its shape and quality. It's even fluffier after a wash and tumble in a warm dryer. Only problem, my dog wants it for her blanket! I got the bright pink color and I love it :)" —Dini.E.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes XS-3XL and in 10 colors).

    22. A Capri Blue Volcano candle that's commonly burned in Anthropologie stores. Now your bathroom can smell just as nice.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two sizes and scents).

    23. A carbonated face mask that bubbles up on your face to add a little comedy to your bathing routine., Amazon

    This mask can help remove blackheads and exfoliate pores.

    Promising review: "Literally made my boyfriend's blackheads disappear! Made our faces feel so clean. I'm a mask junkie and have gotten masks from all the top brands from drugstores, Lush, Sephora, and Ulta. This is one of my new favorites! Also so much fun to watch it bubble up — feels like a spa treatment." —Katie Mitchell

    Get it from Amazon for $9.50.

    24. A slab of Finchberry soap with olive, coconut, palm, and shea butter that's almost too pretty to use.


    All Finchberry soaps are made with piping bags to give them a freshly baked appearance.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $29.

    26. Himalayan salt body scrub with lychee essential oil to exfoliate and moisturize your skin.


    Promising review: "This is my first Amazon review. I love this product sooooo much! My body smells and feels so great. The directions on how to use it (and how frequently) are not that detailed but I use it in the shower and put some extra lotion after shower for more moisture. But honestly this is the best smelling thing I’ve purchased for my body." —anika love

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98.

    27. And a cloud-shaped bath bomb that spits out rainbows once you throw it in the bath! How could you say no to something so great-ient?
