Nothing in this world is certain except for death, taxes,…and poop. Everybody poops. There's no escaping it—every human on earth bears the burden of defecation. With that in mind, why not start in the bathroom if you're looking for gift ideas this holiday season?
Good holiday gifts are thoughtful, practical, and unexpected. What’s more thoughtful, practical, and unexpected than a gift designed to help your friend or family member poop better? The average person spends thirty minutes using their bathroom each day. No matter how cool the gadget or tchotchke is, nobody will spend 30 minutes using it every day, but they will if you get them the right bathroom gift.
As part of our mission to help the world do the doo, we've compiled gift ideas to brighten your loved one’s bathroom. Get out your wrapping paper, prop your feet up on a stool, and read on to make someone’s bathroom a place of relaxation and comfort.
We may be biased, but Squatty Potty makes an incredible holiday gift. Sending someone a Squatty Potty can directly improve their quality of life. Give someone a candle and it provides pleasant aromas for a few weeks (maybe). Give someone a Squatty Potty and you'll help them have better eliminations for life.
The Squatty Potty toilet stool will help your loved one reduce strain, defecate smoother, and help them get off the toilet faster. Sitting upright causes the pelvic floor to choke the rectum which slows down the whole process. Squatting on a toilet stool puts your body and colon at a better angle to push out poop. This improved angle allows for smooth evacuation of feces with minimal straining effort on your end. A Squatty Potty won’t only help your loved one have amazing-feeling poops, it could also help them avoid serious bowel issues down the line.
Unlike exercise gear or a cute mug, Squatty Potty is a gift they will actually use. The average American poops over 300 times a year. That’s 300 times where they’ll prop their feet up on your stool and think of what a thoughtful, kind, and cool person you are.
Bathroom scent diffuser
Help your friend or family create a relaxing, spa-worthy environment while they poop with a scent diffuser. Diffusers spread a subtle fragrance through the room to mask unpleasant smells and keep your bathroom feeling fresh. Not only will a well-placed diffuser make their bathroom feel more luxurious, but it can improve their mood and make them feel more comfortable while they pinch their holiday loaf.
Cozy bath rugs and mats
There’s nothing better than stepping onto a soft bath rug after using the toilet. Pamper your loved one’s feet with a fluffy, clean bathroom rug. Gifting your friend or family member an ultra-soft bath mat provides a cozy surface for them to stand while also protecting their floors from puddles and mildew. A new bathroom mat is also a great way to help them freshen up their bathroom decor and spruce up their space.
Portable potty spritzers make a great stocking stuffer. The scent industry has come a long way from overpowering air fresheners and sprays, which often made matters worse by mixing with bad smells instead of concealing them. Pootanical oils trap odors beneath the water to leave rooms smelling fresh. Unlike other sprays, they're also specifically designed for the bathroom, meaning they're sewer and septic safe.
Bathroom Bluetooth speaker
Know somebody that likes to take their time on the toilet? Consider getting them a Bluetooth bathroom speaker. A wireless speaker can help keep your loved one entertained and mask nasty sounds while they throw down the brown. New Bluetooth speakers are smarter, more durable, and connect quicker than ever. With recent technological advancements, you can find great options regardless of your budget.
Are you worried about water in the bathroom? They make waterproof Bluetooth speakers that keep them safe from unexpected splashes.
Motion-activated toilet light
Have a clumsy friend or know someone afraid of the dark? A motion-activated toilet light turns itself on whenever someone walks into a dark bathroom. It can protect children or the elderly from falling at night when searching for the bathroom or being blinded when you turn on the bathroom light in the middle of the night.You can even get a Squatty Potty with a motion-activated light built in! Two turds, one stone.
Help your loved ones keep their poopers pristine by giving them a bidet. Bidets aren’t only better for your behind, but they’re growing in popularity. They use a gentle stream of water to rinse excess fecal matter from your behind. According to science, spraying your tush with a fresh blast of clean water is nearly twice as effective at cleaning your butt compared to using toilet paper alone.
Innovative products like the Refresh-It Dual Stream Bidet easily attach to standard toilets in less than 10 minutes. Surprisingly easy to use, afford, and install, bidets make for a fun and different holiday gift.
The Final Turd
There's nothing worse than a dull, impractical gift. Surprise and delight your friends and family by giving them a gift they will actually use this year. Products like Squatty Potty toilet stools, bathroom diffusers, or toilet bidets make for thoughtful, practical, and unexpected presents. Improve someone's life by improving their pooping experience this holiday season.
