    Just 28 Thoughtful Gifts For The Shower In Your Life That Are ~Secretly~ Gifts For You, Too

    "You don't have to ~shower~ me in gifts, but I certainly won't say no to these" — your shower, probably.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A drink holder to make your shower feel like the cleanest bar in town.


    It can also hold a can of beer!

    Promising review: "Such a simple idea, how is this just coming into my life now? I didn't think showers could get any better but now I have a brew/wine within reach at all times. Really helps take the edge off after a long day. The thing is way sturdier than you'd expect, I've tugged on it and it's not going anywhere. The slotted design allows you to use stemmed wineglasses too. A truly perfect product. This $13 piece of plastic is working as hard as my therapist and I stan." —Steven

    2. A shower curtain with pockets if the situation around the edge of your tub has gotten a little...out of control.

    Promising review: "We are apartment living, so storage is always an issue, and the bathroom is no exception. No one in the household could take a shower without crash/boom as you're knocking something down sitting on a shelf or the bathtub rim. This is a game-changer. There are so many pockets with so much room in each, I actually have space left over. My husband's back scrubber, my shampoo and hair care, and my daughter's bubble baths and bath floofies all fit with room to spare. And the pockets are all a nice height so I'm not crouching to find anything. The curtain is clear so I didn't have to change the "pretty" one for decorative purposes, and it doesn't affect light that way either. Either way, I am super pleased, and I am keeping this link handy in case another one is EVER needed." —goodnite.graci

    3. A user-friendly grout paint pen that makes it easy to cover up all that grime that builds up in the crevices, so you can keep your shower looking like the day it was born.

    Plus, it works just like a regular marker!

    Promising review: "Wow! Impressed. I have a 20-year-old shower and the grout was getting dirty in the corners. I tried bleach, other solutions, products meant to clean grout but nothing worked, and the smell was unbearable. This product goes on as if you were outlining something with a marker. It covered everything, and stayed on after repeated showers and tile cleaning. I highly recommend this product." —HONEST REVIEWER

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    4. A foot massager and scrubber to deep clean your feet while giving them a lil' massage they'll appreciate after a long day.

    Reviewer using the foot massager and scrubber

    Promising review: "If you are anything like me and you live in flip-flops 365 days a year, your feet are black at the end of the day or you just have sore achy feet at the end of the day, this awesome little contraption is for you! My husband says it tickles, (who cares, I bought it for me dude!), but I love it. It feels so relaxing when you get in the shower and the little nubbies massage your feet. I just put a little bit of whatever cleanser on the scrubbers and bam, feet clean. I just rub them back and forth and get a massage at the same time! Saves me from grabbing anymore washrags and staining them with my black foot Ew. Save the wash cloths! Buy the shower foot scrubber!" —Leslie Dotts

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four colors).

    5. A caddy that simply suctions to the wall to keep the essentials within reach without hassle.

    The caddy, wet from the shower, holding a toothbrush and toothpaste and suctioned to a wall in the shower

    Promising review: "I like to brush my teeth in the shower and this cup is perfect for keeping my toothbrush and toothpaste at a comfortable level on the wall in a place where it avoids getting splashed by shower water. Easy to install and makes things more convenient. I recommend it!" —Nikita

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    6. An over-the-drain hair stopper to save your poor shower drain that's no match for your thick hair.

    Split image of the reviewer holding the hair stopper in their hands and of the hair stopper surrounded by hair when placed over the drain

    Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"—Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    7. Or a FlexiSnake Drain Millipede if your hair/drain situation is already past the prevention stage. This reusable declogger makes it super easy to clear your drain in mere seconds — no plumbing skills required whatsoever.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Was very easy to use and worked exactly as described. In about ten seconds, I had my bathroom drain unclogged without using Drano! It was GROSS, as you can imagine, but a quick hand wash and good rinse of the snake and we were good to go. Everyone should have one of these under the bathroom sink." —Lucy R

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    8. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker that's easy to hang or suction to the wall so you can bring your favorite music or podcast in with you.

    The speaker has both a suction cup and a hook for easy hanging.

    Promising review: "I was sold the second I dropped this speaker in the river, fished it out, and it was still playing music. I have also dropped it in the shower, brushed the soap off, and stuck it back on the wall. It gets loud, easily connects to Bluetooth, and is waterproof. I cannot imagine anything better than this portable speaker." —Viciouslikeme

    Get it from Amazon for $26.98 (available in four colors).

    9. And a color-changing shower head to add even more atmosphere. It's super easy to install and is powered by running water so there's no need for batteries!,

    Promising review: "Thankfully, the other good reviews on this product led me to purchase! What makes this a great buy is that it's actually a good shower head! Nice water pressure, easy to install, and the colored LED lights really work. So relaxing. I was worried the lights might become annoying and flashy, but not the case. I just bought another one for my second bathroom. It's not a luxury head with settings, but you get way more than what you paid for on this. *Word of advice: if you turn off the bathroom lights and just use the calming lights of the head, as soon as you turn off the shower you'll be in pitch black! BE CAREFUL! Maybe prepare ahead of time and use the LED lights to navigate to the real light! 🌈 🚿 ♥" —Dalirenee

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    10. A waterproof note pad because the shower is a place where great ideas happen, but also a notoriously hard place to write things down. Not anymore!

    hand writing "no more great ideas down the drain" on notepad in shower

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for. I'm an author and tend to get some of my best ideas in the shower. Since it's inconvenient to have a normal pad of paper and pen in the shower and dangerous to have anything electronic, these fill the gap perfectly." —NfRtB

    Get it from Amazon for $9.75.

    11. A hard water stain remover that makes it easy to banish the gross buildup and keep your shower sparkling.

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I swear this is unbelievable! All I did was damp a microfiber pad and add some of this product and cover the doors. I let it sit for about 10 minutes until getting the same pad wet and literally wiping the soap scum with ease! I will forever keep this in my product list and the best thing about it is that it is nontoxic." —Miya

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    12. Some very cute and helpful shower squids to keep your shower company when you're gone, and hold your essentials in their adjustable and grippy tentacles.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "Great product! Clears up room in the shower. Holds bottles firmly, and you can dispense without removing from the squid. Would highly recommend." —Ct

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $33 (available in four colors).

    13. Some shower steamers you can place in the corner of your shower to release calming fragrances while you unwind.

    The steamers next to their packaging

    Promising review: "These are the best shower steamers I've ever tried. Usually they aren't strong enough or they melt too quickly to even enjoy. They are also bigger than what you can buy at the store. Id say they are about a hockey puck size. One lasted my entire shower and still smelled amazing even after i was done. These are the best shower steamers hands-down. I would definitely buy these again." —Krista

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A toiletries shower locker so you don't reach for your expensive shampoo only to find that your roommate helped themselves to the last of it.,

    Promising review: "I put a unit in the kids' shower for my daughter, as she is always complaining of her brother using her bathing goods. My son has a large mirror in his room, and this unit fits perfectly in the bottom of the mirror to function as a little cabinet (additionally it is see through so I can see anything my son hides in there)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    15. A rain showerhead to transform your normal ol' shower into the ultimate spa resort experience.


    Promising review: "It was super easy to install and works amazing! I love it so much and the flow of water is perfect and so relaxing. It's a real steal for the price (which had made me skeptical it would work right). It works so great though, super luxurious." —Sarah Katherine

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99 (available in two sizes and three colors).

    16. Some easy to apply and remove nonadhesive static window cling in case your apartment's bathroom window is inexplicably lacking in the...privacy department. Now your shower can be a place of total relaxation, with the added bonus of little rainbow projections when light hits the window just right.


    It can also be trimmed or combined to fit any size window glass.

    Promising review: "Beautiful! I love love love this window film! It was very easy to install and so far I don’t see any edges or corners trying to pop up. I looks beautiful all day long, but in the evening when the sun is shining in this window’s direction, it creates rainbows all over. I would definitely buy this again." —Megan R.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in seven sizes).

    17. A pack of four shower curtain adhesive clips to keep the water INSIDE the shower where it belongs.

    Step by step photos showing how to use the clips to secure the shower curtain

    It'll also prevent your bathmat and the area around your shower from getting moldy and mildewy by keeping the splashes at bay.

    Promising review: "I purchased a couple gadgets here on Amazon that claim to minimize or eliminate shower water seepage and have easy installs. These clips are the best gadget I purchased, and I plan to buy more to hold down the base of my shower curtain. I have them on both the outside and inside of the shower. They are installed on the left side of the shower, the side that we do not use to enter the shower. That way they just stay in place." —Kimber

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in a pack of four and eight).

    18. An amazing drill brush kit to make cleaning your tub and shower area much faster and easier. Instead of furiously scrubbing away and still winding up with mixed results, just attach the brush head to your drill, turn it on, and and let it do the hard work better and quicker.,

    Need a drill? Here's one.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, so hand scrubbing it was for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door... everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." —Terry

    Get a set of three brush heads from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in soft, medium, stiff, and ultra-stiff bristles).

    19. A gorgeous shower curtain that'll make your shower look like a work of art.

    Get it from Jungalow for $41 (originally $62).

    20. A fog-free mirror you can suction right to the wall, adjust to the angle you need, and even store your razor on so shaving in the shower is a breeze.

    Promising review: "I love that I'm able to angle the mirror. I'm short and my boyfriend is tall. Our previous fog free mirror was a little too high for me and a little too low for him but we compromised. With this though... it's perfect!! I can angle it down to suite my height or he can angle it up for his. I didn't need the sticker it came with but its cool that it came with it just in case the suction wasn't working. It's pretty easy to install. I wiped the tile with alcohol and wet the suction cup a little and bam, it's on." —Vivi

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in two colors).

    21. A squeegee to keep your shower glass in tip-top shape.

    hand holding squeegee

    Promising review: "This is the best I've ever used. Our shower is angled so it's hard to squeegee the water off, but, because this tool is flexible, it will go over edges and get all the water. I've never had one that is so effective and flexible. I'm really glad I bought it. The other really good feature is the suction cup holder for it. It actually sticks, easily, to the surface, and the grip-holder for the tool is flexible so when I'm done with the squeegee, it slips easily into the holder. It stays put, waiting for the tool to either be taken or put back. This is a super good feature. Many suction-cup items do NOT stay put, but this one really does. I no longer dread using a squeegee after a shower, as it is now made so easy, there is no struggle." —A. M. Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    22. A hanging caddy you can attach to a shower head or curtain rod to hold all of those things that are usually cluttering the corners of your shower.


    Promising review: "This caddy is amazing. NO RUST! OMG. Can't begin to articulate how nice that is. I was concerned a bar of soap wouldn't work on this (all of the pictures showed liquid soap), but I was wrong. Fits just fine on the lower shelf, in any of the three spots that are available. And the stretchy band accommodates my razor on the side (and finally, my razor doesn't fall off!!!!), and my husband puts his larger razor in one of the circles on the bottom. I take it off of the shower head once a week to spray clean it, rinse it, and wipe it down to take off all the filmy soap, but this is so pretty, modern, and wonderful in that it doesn't rust. And it's nice and flat, it doesn't stick out like the metal ones do. There is a stretchy band across the top and bottom parts, to accommodate much larger bottles of shampoo if needed. A real winner. Can't believe I've never seen this option in a store. I'm so happy with this purchase." —H H

    Get it from Amazon for $19.98 (available in four colors).

    23. A shower and bath grip to make entering and exiting much safer.


    To install, just apply pressure and flip the latches to activate suction.

    Promising review: "I bought this for our shower, because my parents were coming for Christmas and my stepfather is an amputee. He’s almost 70, roughly 6'2 and 250 lbs., (or more post-Christmas feast), and I didn’t hear a crash all week. He survived the holidays without any injury, and the handle is still in place. It was very easy to install, which made me leery because I felt like it was too easy. I can’t get a shower caddy to stay up without crashing, so my fear of being the kid who put in the shower handle wrong and causing a holiday catastrophe was a real concern — my mother would never let me live it down. But rest assured, this thing is easy and sturdy, and the price was great. Holidays are tight enough without my desperate need for karma points and parental approval making extra deductions from my bank account." —Erin H

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98+ (available in three colors).

    24. An extendable, pivoting scrubber that'll help you reach those high up places and tricky corners.

    Promising review: "Never reach and strain yourself again! The scrub head is sturdy and doesn't scratch surfaces. The pole is lightweight and doesn't over flex with weight to get oompf into your scrub action. Makes cleaning quick and frustration free." —Franky J.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    25. Some water resistant Command hooks to make hanging up necessities incredibly simple! No tools are required, and it doesn't leave any damage or sticky residue behind should you want to remove it.

    A shower brush hanging on the hook

    Promising review: "I needed shower hooks to hold up or loofahs in the shower and these work great. Our bathroom is brushed nickel finish and these match well. The install takes 30 seconds. They seem to be strong, I attached them to our shower tiles, we have had no issues with they coming loose." —Stan

    Get it from Amazon for $6.79.

    26. A shower mat that feels and looks like real pebbles to upgrade your shower floor, soothe your tired feet, and help prevent slips.


    Promising review: "It looks just like the picture in the tub. It's made very well and the length was perfect for what i wanted. I move mine back further than pictured since I have long hair, so it all rinses to the drain and wont get stuck in the mat, and so far none has. I have moved it to clean once so far and its very easy to clean. I like that it has gaps between the stone jellies because it dries very quickly and no water sits on the mat. It fixes the problem of the conditioner making it slippy when we shower, and we all feel more safe now. Very happy with this purchase, my daughter loves the spa look it gave the tub too!!" —C. Rozum

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    27. A two-tier, no-drill corner shower caddy in case all of your other surfaces are already full, but you still have more tubes and containers to store in your cramped shower.

    Reviewer photo of the shelf holding toiletries and a loofah

    Promising review: "I have a lot — and I mean a lot — of body washes. The thing that annoys me is that I have nowhere to set my shampoo, conditioner, and body wash bottles. I didn't have any ledge in my shower so I decided to purchase a shower shelf. I must say, this shelf is everything to me. I like how easy it is to set up and how sturdy it is. I was very nervous setting anything on a shelf that is attached on suction cups but these suction cups are very powerful, even with the humidity of the shower. I have taken a shower every day since I installed this shelf on my wall and still holds up. I was able to put about five body washes, my shampoo, and conditioner bottles as well as my facial cleaners. It definitely holds up well. Because it's made with a durable aluminum, you don't have to worry about rust, which was something I worry when being around water. —Adam Lopez

    Get it from Amazon for $21.96.

    28. And finally, a power scrubber to get those tough to reach spots cleaner than you thought was even possible! This thing scrubs 60 times per second, which is *two times faster* than manual scrubbing. Your arms and shower will both thank you!

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I'm obsessed! This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. And — as if easy, sparkling grout wasn't enough! — it busted through some serious soap-scum buildup in my bathtub (thanks, fancy soap and slow-draining tub) in less than a minute. Honestly, when I first tried the scrubber out, I didn't see too many uses for it other than for grout. But after owning it for a while, I've realized that while I don't need it every single week, it's priceless for the occasions I encounter tough gunk that I'd otherwise only conquer with excessive patience and elbow grease." —Natalie Brown, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get it from Amazon for $20.25.
