Keeping love in the tub on chill

Y’all know hubby and I are big romantics. We have regular date nights, we hold hands and whisper sweet nothings in each other’s ears, we snuggle and cuddle, and we do sappy cards and flowers (ok, hubby does the flowers but I’ve done an edible arrangement). You get the point. We love romance.

It’s easy to get caught up in the business of life, work and responsibilities. We think it’s important to keep the magic alive and what better way than through romance and adoration with each other.

So when we bought our house, a non-negotiable for us was a kick-ass bathtub for TWO. That’s right, hubby and I like to take the occasional bubble bath together where we slip and slide and get all sudsy and slicked up together. Nothing is more romantic than THAT! And what totally MAKES a bubble bath for two…you guessed it…CHAMPAGNE!!!

We’ll get the tub all fired up, hubby will open the window, crack the champagne and fire that cork out to the backyard. After a long winter, we’ll find dozens of these little plastic tokens of romantic deliciousness in the spring. Sadly, like true rednecks, we’ve been stuck keeping our champagne bottle on the side of the tub. What this means is we gotta drink it pretty fast before it loses its chill.

That’s till now! Check out the Bathtub Champagne Chiller.

Eeeekeee!!! I am sooo excited! Where were you for Valentine’s day?!?!? Dang! Oh well, there’s always next year.

This bad boy clamps to the side of the tub and will keep my champagne on ice while we lather and love. The chrome bracket adjusts to accommodate tub sides that are 5″ to 7″ so it should work fine for ours. And it’s got pads on the bracket to ensure the unit won’t scratch bathtubs.

It can also serve to hold your kids rubber duckies or perhaps your bathtime spa products but I suggest you try champagne!

For $49.95, you to can order this delightful dish and keep your bubbly on ice.

Do you enjoy a little bath time bubbly? How do you keep the romantic spark alive outside the tub?

It’s Twisted Tuesday and that means it’s time to enjoy a smile, giggle or laugh…here’s hoping I’ve provided it in spades…enjoy!

  • You guys likely read about my conversations with Jenny Hansen where she shoved me encouraged me to start writing ANYTHING. She said we all have 3000 words of dribble inside of us until we get to the good stuff. Hmmmm…nice! I then read this post by Tawna Fenske  on it being ok to suck for awhile that brought the point home all over again with her post!

  1. We love our tub! We’ve been known to down a couple of Miller Lites in there. Seriously, though, I’d love this for a nice bottle of Chianti. So much nicer than hanging a box with a spigot over the side. I must research this further!

  2. Alas, the tubs in this house aren’t comfortable for one let alone for two. We must settle for the occasional sexy shower. Enjoy your bath 😉

  3. “Sudsy and slicked up.” At first, I was screaming “TMI, TMI”! Then I checked out the product. Pretty, nifty gadget there. Okay, go back to your romancing. Heh. 🙂

  4. You’re the perfect romantic. I bet your hubby thinks he’s the luckiest man in the world….. Because he is!

  5. What a great relationship you have! It makes me so happy to read about. There is only one thing that is off for me. You open the window? In the winter? In Canada?? That is something I would never be brave enough to do. I’m scared of frost bite. I love the champagne bathtub chiller! I only wonder if a martini shaker would fit in there? Or a bottle of Godiva white chocolate liquor. I don’t really do champagne. I had too much at a wedding in college…

  6. A friend of mine had double showerheads, and I loved that idea! Someday . . . maybe someday. Love the champagne chiller, Natalie!

  7. LOVE THIS! We built our house with fit-for-two showers. *s* Hadn’t thought of the champagne aspect, neato.

  8. Sadly neither the tub or the shower are big enough for two in our house. Sounds like you and your husband have plenty of great romantic tips to share with the rest of us though 😉

  9. Hahaha. Yes!!!

    P.S. Sooo romantic that you find the corks in spring. squee!

  10. So romantic…you guys set a great example for those who’ve forgotten how to have fun with each other. Before we married a few years ago, I was in an apartment with a shower large enough for two. We spent quite a lot of time in there. I’ve always wanted a huge tub for two, though. My only problem with that is keeping the water warm long enough. 🙂 We spent a vacation at a B&B that had separate cabins. We had a spa tub in our room in its own little nook with a bay window overlooking the woods, Sooo romantic. Boy did we have fun in there and in front of the fireplace! Next house will have an awesome bathroom, for sure!

    • That cabin sounds DIVINE Marcia – OMG! I say if couples don’t have a tub for two at home, going some place like that is perfect! Definitely a must-have for the next house!!!

  11. Yep, you’re a hopeless romantic and I think that’s beyond awesome! I LOVE a bath of wine, especially with a good book and a glass of wine. If I invite my husband, maybe he can hold my book. *snerk* 😉

    • OMG…LOL…luv that Ginger – hold your book!! 🙂 I am sure he’d be otherwise distracted. 🙂

      • Just reread my comment and noticed the typo ‘bath OF wine’. Now, that WOULD put me in the mood. hahahaha! But you are totally right, Natalie, he’d be distracted. I’ll tell him to bring his own book. *solution* 🙂 ((hope you know I’m kidding!))

  12. We are DYING to remodel and get a tub for two and this purchase will be part of it all – I can tell.

    Oh, and on your links – I LOVE your selective memory…that’s 30,000 words of crap before most writer’s brilliance begins to shine. Although, maybe you got 27,000 of that out already and it’s just 3000 for you. I’m willing to believe it. 🙂

  13. That’s it, I’m calling a contractor and getting a tub for two built in this house. I’ve wanted a spa tub for ages and if I can add alcohol to the bargaining table, I just might get my wish! Whoohooo, that’s an awesome product.

    Now I need to go wash my eyeballs and get Hubby’s nekkid, soapy image out of my head.

  14. I’d love to have a hot tub, so I’m totally jealous. We do have a big garden tub, but it’s just not quite big enough for two. What a cool find, Natalie! I bet you guys will be purchasing several!

  15. Well that’s a really cool gaget! And adjustable. Yes, Champagne goes very well with the tub. And this just reminds me that I miss our tub that we had in our last house. *sniffs* It was a nice deep soaking tub. Then we moved to Cali and we only have a shower in our condo. I know, it sucks!!! Major sucks!!
    Oh well. I do have a great big outdoor tub known as the Pacific Ocean within a mile from my front door. So not all is lost. 🙂

  16. Oooh..I want that.

  17. Thanks! I’m all over this and going to order it to get here before DH’s birthday in April!

  18. OMG Natalie – you are definitely my people! (We have champagne every Friday, lol!) I WISH our tub was big enough for two, but man, that is one sweet holder!

  19. Elena Aitken says:

    Seriously, you find THE best stuff!!

  20. I thought this was a great idea but then I realized I live alone and if i were to drink a bottle of anything in the tub, I’d probably drown. oops. good idea for a couple, but I’ll pass.

    • That could definitely be dangerous Louise. No drinking in the tub solo. But…when you get out there dating again, you can lure the love of your life with tales of champagne bubbles!!! 🙂 🙂

Don't be shy...tell me what you think
