Whether you observe your holidays with a twinkling, tinseled evergreen, the promising light of a menorah, or the warm glow of a kinara, December is a month for celebrating. It’s a meaningful time—full of the promise of joy, of family, of heritage, of wishes coming true. And of course, full of stress! All that planning, preparation, and shopping. And all those special people in your life for whom you want to choose the absolutely perfect gift, but you have no idea what that could be. You haven’t got the imagination—or the time—to find the right way to show them how much they mean to you!
OK—Let’s take a survey. All those who love the concept of one-size-fits-all bathrobes, please raise your hands. Hmm. . .nobody? Oh wait—are those some hands going up, back there in the back? No, they’re just adjusting the sleeves of their robes. Looks like this survey scores a big fat zero. Continue reading →
A stay in a luxury hotel is a memorable, pampering experience. The pristine cleanliness, the luxury, the relaxation. Somehow, luxury hotels just seem to know which buttons to push to make their guests feel like they’re the center of the universe. Their goal is to provide all the amenities of home, plus some indulgences to make sure that their guests are happy away from home. Like their luxury hotel robes. Continue reading →

It’s a great gift for starting a couple out on the road to wedded bliss—and comfort! It’s practical, like all those gifts for cooking, cleaning, and decorating, but it’s so much more personal.

The second-month anniversary of her first date with Craig, he surprised her with a gift. Christina groaned inwardly as she pondered the possibilities that lay concealed inside the beautifully wrapped package. Too large for jewelry or perfume—it was probably some kind of sexy lingerie. While she appreciated such gestures, she was getting a little tired of the thinking that usually went behind them. Too many of these gestures were just demands in disguise—always suggestive, and sometimes downright provocative. Why don’t men see me as more than just another pretty face? Christina thought. Oh well, here goes. Continue reading →
“A slight daily unconscious luxury is hardly ever wanting to the dwellers in civilization; like the gentle air of a genial climate, it is a perpetual minute enjoyment.” –Walter Bagehot
Wow—Walter kind of said it all, didn’t he? OK, maybe this quote worked in the 19th century, but these days a lot of us wouldn’t even get it. Nowadays we’d be more likely to say something like, “Having a few little luxuries in our daily lives is part of what makes living worthwhile.” Take a luxury robe, for instance. Without spending a whole lot of money, you can enjoy the softness of cashmere, the warmth of mink (without killing an animal), and the coziness of a ski lodge in the Alps. Continue reading →
Anyone who’s ever enjoyed the experience of a day at the spa (or a weekend, or a week) knows what a pleasurable, tranquil experience it can be to spend a little time pampering yourself and investing in your own well-being. But inevitably, the time spent at the spa has to end, and you find yourself back in the real world. But does it really have to stop there? Not entirely—not if you have your very own spa robe!
Why make a spa experience a once-in-a-while diversion? The real benefits come from taking care of yourself on regular basis, even day-to-day, if you have the time. With an absorbent, lightweight spa robe, you already have the main component of a spa experience in your own home, even if you’ve never actually had the pleasure of being at a spa. Continue reading →
The synthetic polyester fiber is tiny—about one sixteenth the size of a human hair. That’s why it’s called microfiber. But it could also justifiably be called miraclefiber because of its durability, practicality, and versatility. When it was first introduced in the mid-1980s, its main use was for upholstery and furniture coverings. The way in which it holds dye better than cotton or linen, along with its stain resistant properties made it a desirable choice for furniture that was attractive, durable, and low maintenance. Then, because of its absorbent properties, microfiber became the fiber of choice for cleaning materials such as mops, rags, and cleaning cloths. Ultimately, finally, someone figured out that the thin but resilient fiber could be woven into a soft luxury fabric, and the microfiber robe was born.
The extravagant look and feel of microfiber robes is so alluring, day spas and 5 star hotels supply them to their guests to enhance the feeling of indulgence. After a spell in the hot tub, a session with the massage therapist, a few laps around the pool, or a relaxing bubble bath, the natural wicking properties of a microfiber terry robe help you to complete the drying off process with no extra effort. And the microfiber terry fabric is Continue reading →
Life can be very demanding. The average man or woman spends eight or more hours every day navigating the rat race and wondering if it’s worth it. When they get home, she kicks off her fashionable but excruciating high heels, he sheds the choking necktie, they slip into their bathrobes and, ahh—life is good! That’s what the magic of a cozy, comfortable bathrobe can do for a frazzled spirit.
For people who need a regular escape from the hubbub of this crazy world, there’s nothing more inviting than that good ol’ standby, the bathrobe. It offers warmth when you’re cold, modesty and absorbency at tub side or poolside, coziness on the couch in front of the TV, or tranquility on the back porch in the chair swing. It’s all about comfort.
