Sipping While You Soak

Jan 6, 2012
Sipping While You Soak
The must-have accessory for National Bubble Bath Day

bath_champagen_chillerWhy ask why when you can sip and soak?

You could scour the Internet looking for the origin of Bubble Bath Day, which hits bathrooms nationwide on January 8. Or you could equip yourself with the right tools for the holiday — and get sudsy.

In addition to your favorite bubble bath gel, you’ll need the Champagne bucket chiller from Hammacher Schlemmer. The frosted acrylic bucket, which retails for $49.95, clamps to the side of a bathtub and keeps Champagne or your favorite while-you-bathe quaffer cool for as long as you choose to soak.

The 7-inch diameter bucket holds a 750-ml bottle and keeps it within reach as you relax. The chrome bracket adjusts to accommodate tub sides that are 5 to 7 inches thick. Vinyl pads on the bracket ensure the unit won’t scratch your tub.

Your only responsibility is to dip, breathe, and sip.

What’s your favorite bubble bath wine? Share it below.
