Your daily shower can be a boring, monotonous routine. With the right shower accessories, it doesn’t have to be. An effective shower can help relieve the impacts of stress, improve blood circulation and muscle recovery after a hard workout, as well as enhance your overall hygiene.
Most people think they need a trip to the spa to get these therapeutic effects. However, with the right set of gear in your bathroom, your shower can go from a chore to feeling like an individualized spa adventure. A shower beer session is a great place to start, but since cracking open beer in the morning isn’t exactly acceptable, we’re here to give you some other options that’ll allow you to unwind.
From comfortable, aesthetically satisfying towels, bathrobes, and bath mats to waterproof speakers and other toiletries, these shower accessories will enhance your shower experience while keeping you feeling fresh.
When diving into bathroom accessories, the first thing that comes to mind is towels. This is what you’ll use most often when showering and grooming, and you’d be surprised just how far this simple luxury will take you. These gigantic bath sheets from Brooklinen are perfect for even the largest of men, meaning more towel for maximum coverage for everyone. Crafted from 100 percent Turkish cotton, the Mid-Plush bath sheet is an extremely soft, lightweight, and absorbent towel that will make showering less of a chore and more of a therapy session.
If you don’t own a robe, you should. Not only are they great for lounging on lazy days, but a bathrobe will truly make you feel like you’re living the spa life — especially with this luxurious waffle robe. Featuring a lightweight cotton build, hip pockets, a folded collar, and a great waist tie, Parachute provides a functional and comfortable fit available in charcoal grey or cream. There’s also an unspoken expectation to have a matching pair of slippers.
Not only will this river bed-inspired mat make your bathroom looks amazing, but it also provides ample absorbance to quickly soak up water and a padded texture that feels great underneath your feet.
You definitely have a normal towel and you probably have a hand towel, but you might not own a body scrub towel. Think of this as an exfoliator for your body, because it is. The Binchotan body scrub towel also features a softer portion for sensitive skin and a coarser section for the contrary.
Shower organization is essential. The Tooletries silicon toothbrush holder has space for your toothpaste, a hanger for your razor, and a small shelf for important hand jewelry. The best part is its ability to attach to glass, a mirror, tile, or marble.
For some of us, relaxation and therapy come through sound, and there’s nothing better than enjoying a nice, hot shower to the soundtrack of your favorite tunes. Soundbot offers one of the best shower speakers you can get. Take advantage of its universal compatibility, water-resistant loudspeaker, and constructed mic for use both indoor and outdoor use.

Keeping your feet happy is one way to get your day started off the right way. FootMate’s massager and scrubber suction to your shower floor so you can just stand on it and let the system go to work. The systems scrubber cleans areas that most foot cleaning products couldn’t even fathom, and also helps with blood circulation, leaving your feet soothed so you can feel better from the ground up.
As we mentioned before, a shower beer is a great way to relax and take stress away from a long day. But, where do you put it? It’s risky to place your beer on just any ledge, as you risk water contaminating your drink. For this, we give you the Tooletries shower beer holder, a silicone holster that grips securely to most bathroom textiles, such as tile, glass, or marble. There are no suction cups you have to worry about and there is a drainage system to make sure beer and water don’t collect in the holder. Just get you water started, slap the shower beer system on a wall, and elevate your shower beer routine for the best.
