mother daughter in white cotton nightgown and girl's cotton dressYou most likely have at least one friend that prefers to stay at home instead of going out to party on the weekends or that would rather watch a movie on Netflix than go to the theater. If you have a friend like that, your friend is a homebody. With that in mind, what are the best gift ideas for homebodies? Homebodies like creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere in their homes, whether they are staying in to relax or hosting a group of friends for a night in. You will often find many candles, soft blankets, hot beverages, and books around their home. You’ll have everything you need for a cozy night in. Therefore, if you are looking to buy this type of person some kind of present, today we are going to give you a few cozy gift ideas for homebodies.

1. A Nightgown or Pajamas

Pajamas or an elegant cotton nightgown are always great gifts for people who like to spend a lot of time at home. If the person you are buying a gift for enjoys sleeping and relaxing in their pajamas, why not buy them some new ones? You could get them a patterned pajama set which will make them look very fashionable as well as comfortable. You could also get them a nice set of nightgowns to wear around the house in the evenings when they want to have some quiet time and relax after a hard day at work. Everyone loves new pajamas and nightgowns, so that they would make great gifts for just about anyone!

2. Blankets and Pillows

Pillows will go a long way toward making your home more comfortable.

If your friend wants to spend a lot of time relaxing in their home, then they might appreciate some new blankets and pillows. Most people underestimate how crucial pillows are in making a home seem cozy and inviting. If you notice that your homebody friend doesn’t have many pillows around the house, you could surprise them with a nice set of nice pillows so they can enjoy their evenings even more.

You could also get them a nice big blanket which they can put over their bed at night to help them get a good night’s rest. Blankets are very helpful when it comes to keeping warm in the winter, and they are great for providing extra comfort when it’s cold outside. They can also be placed over sofas in the living room to add an extra layer of warmth to the room when it is cold outside. The possibilities for blankets and pillows are endless, and this makes them one of the best gift ideas for homebodies.

3. A Bathrobe and Slipper Set

Slippers and bathrobes are often considered luxury items, but many people don’t realize how important they can be in the bedroom as well. If you have a friend who loves to relax in the comfort of their own bedroom, then why not get them a new bathrobe and slippers set? These would look great draped over their bed, and it would also make their room look a lot cozier and inviting. Furthermore, now that it’s getting colder outside walking barefoot to the bathroom in the middle of the night can be quite uncomfortable. A good pair of slippers and a warm cotton bathrobe will make these bathroom trips a lot more enjoyable for the homeowner. There are many different types of slippers and bathrobes available, so you can choose one that goes well with the decor of the bedroom or the bathroom.

4. Decorative or Reading Lights

Another way of making someone’s home feel more comfortable and inviting is by adding some decorative lights to different areas of the house. For instance, having a reading light on the bedside table can make bedtime a lot easier and more enjoyable for your homebody friend. Furthermore, hanging string lights around the living room area can create a nice ambiance throughout the room and help bring the outdoors in during the upcoming winter months. In fact, bestmovers.nyc discovered that many people use these types of lights soon after moving in to make their homes feel more welcoming and comfortable while waiting for their furniture to arrive.

Adding simple decorative lights can help transform the home into a place that your friend will want to spend their time in even more than they are already doing! Now that Christmas time is right around the corner, why not surprise your friend with a gift that will keep on giving throughout the entire holiday season?

5. A Set of Books

Book sets are very common gifts these days because people enjoy curling up on the couch with a good book on a cold winter night. When it comes to buying a book set for a friend, it is important to make sure that the books chosen are ones that they will enjoy reading. However, even if that is not the case, most people like receiving books they may not normally read because they may want to add them to their collection or simply because they are beautiful objects to look at. If you would like to buy a book set for a friend or family member, try going online and looking at some of the different available options.

Be Creative

That being said, if you are going to buy a large set of books, you can also go through the effort of doing something interesting with the way you pack it. You can take a large moving box and pack the books in there and then decorate the box with some wrapping paper to make it look more festive. You can be creative with this and make your gift much more special than a simple pack of books ever could be!mathilde dress playtime

Towel Display Ideas That Will Make Your Bathroom Look Luxurious

If you are looking to give your bathroom a luxurious look, you don’t need to invest in expensive renovations. The key to achieving this lies in the smallest details, such as bathroom accessories. Therefore, we’ve prepared several towel display ideas that will help you give your bathroom a simple makeover that can make a huge difference and give it a luxurious feel. From ways to fold your towels to decorative storage tricks, we made sure to cover everything. If you are about to renovate and lack inspiration, we’ve prepared simple bathroom remodeling tips as a bonus. Now, let us begin!

Remodeling tricks to make your bathroom look luxurious

Renovating a bathroom is not an easy task. You need to organize the process efficiently and think about functionality and aesthetics at the same time.

Adding plants and a ladder as a towel storage are great ways to make your bathroom look more luxurious.

Before we reveal our easy tricks for displaying towels, here are a few bathroom remodeling ideas that can make even the smallest bathroom look luxurious.

  • Choose colors wisely – Even though you might be a fan of bright colors and patterns, if you want to make your bathroom look luxurious, consider choosing neutral and pastel colors for both walls and decor.
  • Incorporate plants – Another great way to make your bathroom look more expensive is to add plants or even artwork depicting plants. Also, consider letting more natural light in by updating your window treatments.
  • Think about lighting – Soft lighting can make you feel like you are on a spa retreat while relaxing in your bathroom. Therefore, consider updating your lighting fixtures.
  • Double sink or double shower – Depending on your bathroom size, consider adding a double sink or double shower. They are reminiscent of high-end hotel suites and can make your bathroom look luxurious. If you have a small bathroom, a walk-in shower with either a glass door or stylish shower curtains could be a perfect choice.

Towel display ideas that will make your bathroom look luxurious

Changing the smallest details in any room of your home can make a big difference. For instance, a simple thing such as covering your tissue box can add a more lavish feel to your living space. To help you add a luxurious glow to your bathroom, here are our simple towel display ideas.

Ways to fold towels

The way you fold your towels can help make your bathroom pop. But first, make sure that you invest in high-quality towels as you can’t make your bathroom look luxurious with towels made from cheap and synthetic materials.

Stacking towels

Luxury is often closely related to minimalism. That’s why many high-end hotels choose the simplest ways to display their towels. Adding monograms to your towels is also a great way to add a luxurious touch to your bathroom.

The most efficient but, at the same time, beautiful way to display towels is to stack them. You can also organize them by size and type before placing them on your shelves. Classic and timeless, this technique is very simple to learn.

Fold it over around two-thirds after laying the towel horizontally on a flat surface in front of you. Before folding the remaining third, smooth the edges. The next step is to fold it in half, smooth the edges and fold it in half once more. The folded spine should be facing outward when stacking.

Rolling towels

If you want to add a spa vibe to your bathroom, consider rolling your towels. Besides looking great, this is also the best and most efficient way to pack your towels too. For instance, if you are preparing for a move, you can simply fold your towels this way, place them into a moving box and get in touch with zippyshellphl.com to help you relocate to your new place. It’s as simple as that!

To perfectly roll your towels, lay them down on a flat surface, fold the left bottom corner to the center and repeat the same with the right-bottom edge. The next step is to smooth the towel and flip it upside down. Roll it tightly, then tuck in the flap after you’re done.

Towel display and storage ideas

The open storage trend is slowly becoming a favorite in interior design. You can incorporate these pieces into your bathroom and display your beautifully folded towels. Here are some bathroom storage ideas that will make your bathroom look luxurious.

Open shelves or towel ladders

Ladders or open shelves can do wonders in your bathroom. Not only are they great storage options that can help you maximize your space, but they can also create a Pinterest-worthy look. Simply lean ladders on a wall next to your bathtub or shower and display your perfectly ironed towels.

Towel stools or baskets

Depending on the style of your bathroom, you can consider adding a rustic stool and placing rolled towels on it. On the other hand, consider adding towel baskets if you want to give your bathroom a spa look. You can place rolled towels inside of them and leave them on display.

Towel hooks or rings

If you have a smaller bathroom, that doesn’t mean you can’t add a luxurious feel to it. Add stylish towel hooks or rings and use them to display your towels. They can be a perfect solution, especially if you don’t have enough room for a towel rack.

Vanity with cubby holes

If you are looking to invest in a new vanity, consider having one custom-made with cubby holes. It’s a great way to have dedicated space for freshly rolled towels. It will look even more luxurious if you have a double sink.

Final thoughts

We hope our towel display ideas inspired you to make small changes in your bathroom and give it a luxurious vibe. Remember, the most important thing you should focus on is buying high-quality towels, as, without quality, you can’t give your bathroom the look it deserves.
