We just had our company’s holiday party. The last one we held was in December 2019. I felt grateful in a myriad of ways that we were able to revive the tradition this year. As I looked around the room, I saw faces of people who have been with us for many years and some new ones as well. There were a lot of laughs as we reinvigorated the Yankee Swap and, while there were a bunch of really great gifts that were hotly contested, there were also some very silly ones that kept the mood upbeat and lighthearted. My mom and dad came for the festivities and it was heartwarming to see both my immediate family around the table, as well as my extended work family. Every year at this time I feel thankful to be in such great company.
A huge thank you to everyone who participated in our annual Toys for Tots program. Part of our company culture is to give back to the community. Supporting the Toys for Tots initiative has been something both our customers and our team can get behind and do it together. Each year we get more excited and more passionate to get more toys in order to brighten the hearts of more kids. Next year, please be sure to seek us out, drop off a toy, or make a donation and we’ll do the shopping for you.
On our blog this month, we are going to feature items that were picked by our team members because they would be thrilled to receive them as gifts. There were a couple of fan favorites and a few unique selections. It is fun to see what they chose. As you may have noticed on one of our recent Instagram posts, the singer Drake gave his friend DJ Khaled four luxury toilets as a birthday present. Maybe people should re-think their lists???
May you all enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season. Cheers!
Best, JasonSevinor President
There’s no place like home for the holidays. And while the holly on your own front door may be a pretty sight, the Designer Bath team thinks the *prettiest* sight to see this year would be these luxury bath items under your tree. We asked our staff what’s on their Designer Bath Wish Lists this holiday season. Here are their picks for most coveted gifts!
JASON & AMY’S PICK: CROSSWATER RESSA SPA TOILET
When elegant Scandinavian design meets environmentalism, you get perfection in the form of the Crosswater Ressa Spa Toilet. This sleek newly released toilet allows you to customize your entire bathroom experience, from seat to spray temperature, to positioning and drying functions. The icing on the cake: proceeds of every Ressa are donated to Upstream and support their efforts to eliminate plastic pollution.
MINDY’S PICK: STEAMIST STEAM SHOWER
Is there anything more relaxing and luxurious than a steam shower? Turn your home bathroom into a calming spa oasis with a steam shower from Steamist that’s totally customizable — you can control the steam temperature and duration, and can even add luxury spa features like aromatherapy, lighting, and music. There’s only one thing to worry about: wanting to spend all day in there.
ANNMARIE & PATRICK’S PICK: THE GALLEY IDEAL WORKSTATION 4S
The Galley Workstation represents the next generation of kitchen appliances — it’s a complete culinary system where you can prep, cook, serve, entertain, and clean, all in one compact area. Forget the kitchen explosion that occurs around holiday gatherings; the Galley Workstation will keep everything contained into one convenient (and stylish) area of your kitchen. Beautifully handcrafted in the USA, its dual-tier design allows you to ergonomically chip, strain, and mix to prepare a meal before cooking, then easily transition to a serving station to feed your guests.
GREG’S PICK: ARTELINEA DOMINO VANITY
Artelinea’s Domino line offers a wide selection of combinable units that can be stacked together and bring order to even the most complicated challenges in terms of space and design. The basin tops and units feature a pure white finish, adding a clean, modern touch.
BRIANA’S PICK: RECESSED LED RAINHEAD BY GRAFF
When it comes to this ceiling-mounted showerhead system by Graff, there are always a few questions that have to be addressed: rainfall, rain curtain, or cascade water functions? The personalization options with this Recessed LED Rainhead by Graff, including the choice of six chromotherapy lighting colors, adds to its appeal.
VICI’S PICK: MTI JULIET TUB
Nothing beats a soaking tub timeout after a long winter’s day. MTI’s Juliet is both modern and graceful, with smooth, clean lines that make you want to sink right in. It makes a perfect focal point for any bathroom design.
