This year, self-care is more paramount than ever before, so spending all night soaking in the tub is encouraged. Having all the necessities—a bath bomb, a hair mask and a bath board, for example—on hand can make the difference between a good bath and an amazing one, so investing in your night in is truly worth it. Whether you call them bath boards, bath trays, bath shelves or by any other name, there’s no denying that a good bath caddy is an essential when it comes to a relaxing night in. 

If you’ve ever had the urge to drink your wine, read your new book and scroll through your Instagram feed while soaking in the tub, you need a bath board in your life. They’re designed to hold everything you could ever want right over your tub, keeping your essentials dry while you lay back and relax in the bubbles. Now you’ll never have to worry about dropping your glass of rosé while reaching for your phone again!

There are tons of different styles of bath shelves available to shop right now, from chic bamboo options to shiny gold alternatives, so they match any aesthetic and guarantee the perfect Insta pic. Your bath time will become so nice, you may never want to get out (Or need to, since all your essentials are reachable!) So get your diffuser going, dim the lights and try to relax

If you’re spending a self-care night in hanging out at home, make sure to add a bath caddy to your list of spa night necessities. You totally deserve it.
