Stuck for Christmas gift ideas? We can do better than the traditional socks, jocks and chocolates.
The sweet spot for bathroom updates is: low involvement, high impact. You want small, simple touches that can quickly refresh the entire room. And that’s what makes these Kado Arc Accessory Packs such a perfect Christmas gift, especially for those family members who insist they “don’t need anything” (you know who you are).
Kado have bundled their timber bathroom accessories into two handy packs this year. The first includes a bath rack and stool, crafted from solid American oak. The second includes the rack, the stool and a timber towel ladder. Everything you need to turn your second bathroom into a Swedish day spa (we recommend adding some tea candles and Enya to complete the experience).
Tapware and other accessories are another way to quickly elevate your stock-standard bathroom. Retiling your mum’s ensuite for Christmas is probably a bit excessive, but a few thoughtful accessories from Mizu might just fit the bill (they also work with existing plumbing, so installation is a breeze).
Brushed gold is definitely the new-season metallic, and you’ll find it across Mizu’s entire bathroom range, including the twin waterraill shower, toilet roll holder, basin mixer tap and towel rail. You might recognise some of these from Channel Nine’s The Block, where they’ve been featured in several bathrooms. Mizu’s accessories are made from solid brass with a range of striking finishes. Looking great next to warm, pastel colours and crisp white tiling, we’re loving the decadent brushed gold finish.
Let’s face it, most Christmas gifts end up in a cupboard or at the bottom of a drawer somewhere. But we know one gift that will generate brownie points every single morning: the heated towel rail. If you’ve never experienced crisp, warm towels at 7am in mid-winter, you can’t appreciate how good this gift really is.
Reece stocks a variety of different towel rail models, including plug-in and hardwired options. Available in a range of sizes, the Mizu Stream Rail in matte black is perfect for minimalist ensuites. Posh Solus also makes an excellent four-rail model in polished stainless steel, which is great for larger families. Give the gift of warmth this Christmas. Your friends will love you for it.
