    The hardest part is choosing which fizzie is right for you! Luckily for you, I'm a self-proclaimed bath bomb enthusiast and can suggest TONS of options. Prepare to ~soak~ in some great products.

    1. A gift set filled with 12 moisturizing bath bombs that you'll honestly just end up keeping for yourself.

    Amazon

    The best gift is the kind you buy for a friend but then decide you can't part with — like this set. It's filled with 12 different scents that each promise to help hydrate dry skin. Need more convincing? Over 2,000 people have given this a five-star rating on Amazon!

    Promising review: "I purchased these bath bombs because I was looking for an alternative to Lush. I'm a school teacher, I need relaxation without the price tag of around $7 a bomb! I was very excited to see that these bombs are handmade in the United States. They also are made of ingredients that are familiar to me. I ordered with Prime so they arrived in two days, as promised. The packaging is very simple. The bombs were well protected during their journey. None of mine felt broken. I could smell them through the box! Very strong, yet awesome, scents. They have a small sticker with the names of each bomb on the individual wrappers. I tried 'Fun on the Beach' first. My entire bathroom smells amazing! My water is a hot pink/purple color. The bomb took about two minutes to dissolve entirely. I am so excited to try them all! —Kelsea McKinzie

    Get it from Amazon for $24.80.

    2. A jar of cosmic bath bombs, so your next bath will feel simply out of this world.

    Etsy

    I personally enjoy a smaller bath bomb, so these are truly ideal for anyone who has an average-sized tub. Made with a combination of citric acid, epsom salt, and baking soda, these lil' bombs are sure to leave you feeling starry-eyed.

    Get it from thecosmiccompany on Etsy for $4+ (available in 4 oz or 8 oz).

    3. A delectable bath bomb set you do-nut want to miss out on.

    Forever 21

    How cute are these donut bath bombs?! They even have tiny sprinkles embedded in them. Disclaimer: These may look delicious but they are NOT for eating. Drop 'em in the tub and enjoy a sweet, sweet soak.

    Get the set of four from Forever 21 for $5.90.

    4. A set of Pokémon bath bombs that you'll continue to order over and over again to try to "catch em' all."

    Amazon

    On Amazon these bombs are marketed for children — but I gotta say, as a '90s kid I wouldn't mind getting a Pokémon bath bomb as a gift! My husband is still very much obsessed with the show and would 100% love the fact there's a hidden pocket monster inside this item.

    Promising review: "We bought these as a reward for our 5-year-old who is currently into Pokémon and they were great! He could hardly wait to take a bath each night. They are really foamy and whirl all around the tub, which is fun. The scents were nice-smelling and the little Pokémon figures were right up his alley. They’re little, but tiny collectible things are his jam. Great purchase! We will likely be ordering more." —S. Lithgow

    Get a set of six from Amazon for $28.99.

    5. A terrifyingly Saw-esome bath bomb, perfect for unwinding after a horror of a day.

    Etsy

    Why toss a regular old bath bomb into your tub when you can use a horrifyingly incredible one like this? Themed after Jigsaw from the Saw movies, this bomb smells of blood orange and citrus. Good luck getting this image out of your brain.

    Promising review: "Soooo obsessed. Smells like fruit punch, HUGE and slowly fizzed out, left the water a deep blood red. I freaking love it." —Shannon Eck

    Get it from GeorgiaCharmBombs on Etsy for $9.

    6. A pair of bath bombs that reveal dazzling rings inside as they dissolve — but don't buy these if you're on the cusp of proposing to your significant other or you'll really piss them off.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Just saying, if your girlfriend or boyfriend thinks you MIGHT get engaged soon maybe don't taunt them with this gift. Now that that's out of the way — these bombs are AMAZING. Each one has a ring inside that varies in worth between $15 and $5,000 (!). If you like taking a gamble, this is the bath accessory for you.

    Promising review: "OK, most teen girls are pretty easy to shop for, but want to find two gifts in one? This was perfect for our teen who is too old for toys, doesn't need any makeup, and sure did not need any more clothes! She loved these bath bombs because she got to turn her bathroom into a spa. She loved the scent and how they fizzle in the bath as they dissolve and then the second gift magically appears in her bath and it's — SURPRISE — a ring in her size! No matter who you're shopping for this is a great idea that is not boring or overdone." —Leslie G

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $24.95 (available in sizes 6-9).

    7. A set of Queen V bath bombs to help relieve cramps and discomfort during that unpleasant time of the month.

    Free People

    Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by your period? Yeah, same. Luckily some kind soul has created bath bombs like these to help us get through that awful week each month. These bombs are made with essential oils that are specifically aimed to relieve menstrual pain. Hallelujah!

    Get a set of three from Free People for $9.

    8. A bath bomb that will make you feel like you're relaxing on a beach in Rio instead of in your bathtub that you probably haven't cleaned recently enough.

    Sol de Janeiro / Via instagram.com

    No judgment here. This bomb is packed with algae extract, sea salt, cupuaçu butter, açaí oil, and coconut oil — and it's going to make your skin SO soft. Don't even get me started on the scent, gooooood lawd!

    Promising review: "I’m a big fan of Sol de Janerio, and when this showed up I knew I was going to end up picking it up as a treat during the sale. I have very sensitive, eczema-prone skin. You could definitely cut it in half for a longer experience, but I just went for it. It had a wonderful fizz to it, it looks like a little hurricane in your bath! My skin was pretty cruddy still from a long winter, and I took a soak in this and it was like my legs were renewed! I don’t like coconut oil a lot, but it was super nice and not over the top. It does what it says. It is pricey but if you want something special, this is it." —qcityk

    Get it from Sephora for $10.

    9. A box of lavender shower tablets, which are basically bath bombs but for your shower!

    Amazon

    My mom isn't a big fan of baths, but she didn't want to give up the soothing spa experience she was able to create in her tub. Enter: shower tablets. All you have to do is drop one of these essential-oil infused tablets into the bottom of the shower and let the water do the work!

    Promising review: "Someone gave me one of these tablets for Christmas and it was WONDERFUL. It emits aromatherapy lavender, and just puts a smile on your face. You walk out of your shower all smiles and calm. The tablet goes into the corner of the shower, where the water never hits it directly. It lasts over five showers. I SUPER highly recommend it. I wish I could just walk around the house with one around my neck!" —KP on Whidbey

    Get it from Amazon for $8.68 (includes three packets).

    10. An actual F-bomb, for your friend who loves nothing more than cursing up a storm (and could probably benefit from a relaxing spa night).

    Etsy

    There are few things as satisfying as dropping an F-bomb—both the actual word and this bath bomb. It is scented with blueberry extract and lavender essential oils, so you'll be calm as fuck after soaking in it for a few moments.

    Get it from badgerfacebeauty on Etsy for $7.99+ (available with or without a snarky gift message).

    11. A butterbeer bath bomb that not only smells like the famed Harry Potter beverage, but also sorts you into your destined house.

    Etsy

    Not all of us have the pleasure of being sorted by the great Sorting Hat (sigh, muggle life), so we'll need to settle on this bath bomb. All you have to do is drop it into your bath and wait to see which color appears to reveal your house!

    Get it from spoilmespaproducts on Etsy for $4.99+ (available with or without cellophane wrapping).

    12. A book and DIY bath bomb kit, in case you're tired of the same fizzies and want to start customizing your own for the ultimate bathing experience.

    Urban Outfitters

    I've admittedly hit a bit of a bath bomb rut. I have SO many of the same scent that I find myself forever looking to mix things up. This kit will help me (and you!) learn how to make my own bombs using whatever fragrances and ingredients I want. Think bath time, but make it science.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $19.95.

    13. A set of 12 extra-large bath bombs, made with organic coconut oil to make your skin as soft as a baby's bottom.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This delightful set comes with 12 individually wrapped bombs, so they would make wonderful stocking stuffers or add-on gifts for your friends. The combination of organic coconut oil and essential oils will create a bath you'll want to soak in foreverrrrrr.

    Promising review: "I very rarely write reviews but these deserve it. They're not very big but you aren't missing anything, trust me! Lasting scents (I like REALLY long baths), beautiful, moisturizing, gorgeous non-staining colors. Not wrapped in obnoxious shrink wrap like most. My husband used more of them than I did! We love them so much we burned through a whole box in one month. #sorrynotsorry. For a little over a buck per bomb, I don't even feel bad about it. Can't wait to get more and try all the scents my husband used before I could get to them!" —B and K

    Get it from Amazon for $24.97.

    14. A box of macaron bath bombs that will make you feel fancy, French, and fabulous.

    Urban Outfitters

    There are few desserts as delicate and beautiful as a macaron. Now you can bring the beauty of this tasty treat into your bath tub (if you weren't already snacking on them mid-soak like the queen you are). The macarons are rose-, matcha-, and fig-scented. Classy as ever.

    Get the set of three from Urban Outfitters for $10.

    15. A stress relief bath fizzy, because you need something to help you forget about that time your server said "enjoy your meal" and you said "you, too!" even though they clearly weren't eating.

    Bath and Body Works

    Let the awkward encounters of your day just wash away as you soak in this stress-relief bath bomb. It's scented with eucalyptus and spearmint, excellent for soothing your muscles and your mind.

    Promising review: "This is a great bath bomb. The combination of eucalyptus and mint is invigorating. It’s the best after a long difficult day. It makes your skin soft, and the scent lingers a good while. I will repurchase. This is one I’ve given with presents. I’ve gotten positive feedback." —BBW2WILD

    Get it from Bath and Body Works for $6.95.

    16. A bath bomb that will make you feel like you're a magical fairy princess as it infuses your tub with the perfect amount of glitz and glam.

    Promising review: "This is one of the most beautiful bath bombs I've ever seen! I almost didn't want to use it because it looked so pretty! It smells really good and left my skin very soft. Seeing it in the bath made me feel a bit like royalty...or like a fairy with a little sparkling pixie dust in the water. Either way, I loved it!" —Marie11

    Get it from Ulta for $6.50.

    17. A bath bomb subscription box, so you'll never have to worry about running out of your favorite fizzy friends.

    Cratejoy

    This Sudzly subscription box is about to become your bath time BFF. I enjoy bath bombs more than the average person, but my passion for at-home spa-like experiences has definitely expanded into other realms (soaps, scrubs, etc). This box is perfect for the person who wants bath bombs on a monthly basis and is open to combining other fun soapy products with them.

    Promising review: "I've subscribed to about five different soap boxes and Sudzly, by far, is the best bang for the price. I've never been disappointed, and December's box surely did not disappoint — lovely bath loofah type shower scrubber, heavenly seasonal two big chunks of soap, a good-sized sugar scrub. The soaps are Starry Night & Softly Fallen Snow. And it's all wrapped up in a beautiful box. You just can't beat the value!!!! Sudzly...I love you!!!" —Katherine

    Get it from Cratejoy for $18.50 a month.

    18. A "chill pill" bath bomb that is the perfect prescription for your friend who is still so triggered by the fact Nick Jonas is a married man (it me).

    Etsy

    Yes, Nick Jonas and I are the same age, but OMG I feel like he and Priyanka JUST met! But I digress. This bath bomb is a must-have for forever uptight people (like myself) who will definitely get a kick out of it and benefit from its relaxing scent.

    Get it from themuddymouse on Etsy for $5.99.

    19. A packet of unicorn bath dust, because some of us need immediate gratification and simply can't wait for a regular bath bomb to dissolve.

    What do you get when you pulverize a bath bomb? Unicorn dust, obviously. If you're not into waiting for you bomb to fizz and dissolve, you can just cut to the chase with this simple powder.

    20. A set of bath bombs made with natural clay, mineral salts, shea butter, cocoa butter, sunflower seed oil, baking soda, and fragrance to fizz your aches and pains away in no time.

    Amazon

    I actually own this set of bath bombs and gifted two to each of my bridesmaids in their "proposal" boxes. I selfishly kept a few for myself and I must say they are fantastic! The scents in the box include coconut, lavender, ocean, seagrass, green tea, grapefruit, orange, rose, lily, geranium, lemon, and aloe vera, so you're bound to find a fitting fragrance for everyone in your squad.

    Promising review: "I bought these thinking they would last a month between my wife and three daughters. I think I was lucky to get two weeks! My girls (ages 4-9) absolutely love these. Each bath bomb is individually wrapped, much nicer than I would have expected for the price. They all have had a wonderful scent and leave the water a soft color that doesn't linger when the tub is emptied. I'll probably end up buying quite a few more of these than I had originally planned just because they've been such a big hit!" —Blixem

    Get it a set of 12 from Amazon for $14.95.

    21. A rosé bath bomb, for the basic bitch who will thoroughly enjoy dropping this ball of fizz into their tub while sipping on their nightly glass of wine.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    A lot of parents struggle to get their kids to agree to take a bath and have started using bath bombs to encourage them to get in the tub with minimal arguments. Which is why fun bath bombs like this one exist! It includes a surprise mermaid necklace inside of it, so when the bomb is done fizzing away your little one gets an exciting new piece of jewelry. (Don't judge if you find me ordering this item for myself.)

    Promising review: "Fantastic! My daughter loved it, the color was really beautiful, it smelled great, and she was very excited about her mermaid necklace. A wonderful way to treat my little one without sugar or sweets. I am trying to decide which one to order for her next!" —L. N. Guerra

    Lush Cosmetics, @Lushcosmetics / Via instagram.com

    Let's face it: Lush Cosmetics has set the standards for ALL bath bombs. They have essentially built on empire off of them, no joke. While I've tried MANY Lush bombs, the intergalactic one remains a classic favorite. It takes your standard bath and transforms it into something magical.

    Promising review: "I love this bath bomb. It was my first-ever bath bomb and I will never get sick of it. It smells amazing, the colors are great, and the sparkly dark blue water is like magic. The fact that I get out of the tub sparkling just makes my night. Ever since I found out I can use it in a cool tub after work it's become a twice-a-week thing." —Andise
