If you’re one of the many Americans who loves the Christmas holiday season, there’s a good chance you’re interested in how to incorporate Christmas decorations in all areas of your home. Although you might not have given it any thought, there’s plenty of ways you can decorate your bathroom for the holiday season. From holiday-themed soaps and hand towels to homemade decorations, here’s some easy ways you can a bit of holiday cheer to your guest bathroom.

Holiday Hand Towels

If you’re looking for an easy way to add a hint of Christmas to your bath, start with linens. If you’re feeling festive but dancing elves and reindeers aren’t your thing, there are tons of subdued options out there, including towels in colors like red and green. If you want to give your guests the VIP treatment, splurge on high-quality linen towels you can use year after year. Note: if anything with embroidery needs ironing, iron on the opposite side of the towel so the pattern won’t be ruined by the heat.

Seasonal Scents

Whether you love Christmas for the gingerbread or evergreen trees, there’s a scent to match. Fragrance has a powerful effect on mood, so keep guests in the holiday spirit by treating them to a deliciously scented bathroom. Spray the room with a Christmas tree scented room spray, place a pot of cinnamon potpourri on the vanity, or light a homemade gingerbread candle. If your holiday guests are staying the night, consider stocking the shower with holiday-scented shampoos, conditioners, and body washes.

Trim the Mirror

If you have leftover holly after decorating the rest of the house, why not save a few sprigs for the bathroom? Frame your medicine cabinet or bathroom vanity mirror with an evergreen garland, holly, tiny ornaments, or twinkling lights. For a bolder look, hang a balsam wreath – it’ll produce a festive scent while acting as an accent piece in your bathroom. When hanging the wreath, make sure it not only holds a lot of weight but leaves only a tiny mark.
