Are you looking for a last-minute holiday gift idea? Does the person you need a present for like to both drink alcohol AND take bubble baths? Were you aware that relaxing in the bathroom with a glass of booze was an exercise fraught with peril? I am a person who likes to have a drink while I get ready to go out, so I kinda already knew this. Duh, breakable glass + hard tile + bare feet = cut tootsies and total disaster. (But that doesn't mean I don't still do it.)
I like to think that I'm being ultra-careful when sloshing a drink around in the bathroom, but it's probably only a matter of time until there is an "incident." You may be in the same boat -- so do yourself a favor and check out this important Public Service Announcement:
We are living in the very best of times, because there exists a special glass holder for your bathtub wine time. Never has a small piece of plastic and two simple suction cups resulted in such a smart solution to one of makind's most persistent problems.
But this clever device isn't just for wine snobs -- as the website states, why wouldn't one "relax in the tub with a glass of wine, champagne, or even a martini"? UM, YEAH, WHY WOULDN'T YOU?
I share a tub with a dude and some dirty dogs, so chillaxing in the bath with a cocktail on a regular basis isn't happening for me right now. But let me tell you who could most definitely benefit from this amazing invention: our neighborhood bathtub boozehound, Claire Lower:
Lest you think I'm unjustly painting Claire as some sort of wine-crazed maniac, peep this pic I just hilariously came across on her Instagram while taking a break from writing this:
The company responsible for this clever bathtub drink-holding invention is called WaveHooks, and they funded its creation via a Kickstarter campaign. If you think the wine glass holder is aces, just wait until you see the other bath-based eating and drinking devices they have on tap. It seems that you can actually store your wine glass, an entire bottle of wine or a can of beer, AND a plate of food in your bathtub -- which removes the need to ever leave the warm embrace of soapy, bubbly water.
So if you are out of time (and let's face it, it's almost Christmas Eve, so you are really ARE out of time) and still on the hunt for a perfect gift for the bathtub drinker in your life, here's what to do: get some type of cute basket, hit up your local grocery store for an acrylic cocktail glass (which handily solves the whole 'glass in the bathroom' problem), pop a bottle of wine or a bath bomb in with it, and order this suction cup wine-holding device via Amazon Prime -- printing out one of the more hilarious photos of it in action as a placeholder until the actual item arrives.
Just like that, you've got an instant, hilarious gift for the cocktail lovin', bathtubbin' babe in your life. Happy holidays!
