Roto-Rooter’s 2012 bathroom gadgets and accessories gift guide has a variety of fun, functional gifts for everyone in a wide price range.
Why the bathroom?
“People are spending more time than ever before in the bathroom. Trends in home design and mobility of electronics have made the bathrooms of average homes spa-like retreats where a stressed homeowner can unwind with a tablet, music and more,” said Roto-Rooter director of public relations Paul Abrams.
On average, a person spends 30 minutes per day in the bathroom, while at least one in four spends an hour or more. Everyone has someone on their holiday shopping list that they aren’t sure what to buy and they all have one thing in common; they spend time in the bathroom daily.
With Roto-Rooter’s help, here are my top-10 picks for bathroom gifts for 2012.
