Dress up the bathroom for the Holidays.

When Liz was little we went all out decorating for the holidays, but the older I get the less excited about Christmas I am. While I’m not Scrooge McDuck over here a simple tree and presents under it is about as much as we do anymore. But this year I decorated the bathroom up a little bit with some holiday cheer from Naughty to Nice Toilet Paper.

Who Gives a Crap has launched its new holiday TP designs for a limited time only, celebrating the naughty and nice in everyone. Available on November 8th and sold globally, users can get 48 jumbo rolls, half of them naughty, half of them nice of course, to outfit their bathrooms and surely be a conversation starter during your holiday party.

The rolls are made with 100% bamboo and don’t contain any inks, dyes or scents, to be kind to people’s bums and to mama nature. Who Gives a Crap also donates 50% of all sales to help build toilets in developing countries. In fact, more people in the world own mobile phones than toilets. The holidays are a great time of the year to get involved in charitable efforts so why not help change this staggering statistic.

This partnership is brought to you by Colgate-Palmolive for review purposes, but regardless of that affiliation opinions are 100% my own.

Each November I look forward to a new “holiday” scent from the makers of Softsoap and this year I was amazed at their holiday collection. The first one I tried was Frosted Wish which brings the smell of fresh cherries intertwined with the magical scents of the holiday season. The creamy formula leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth which is something that is a must for this wood stove burning family.

The other “holiday soap” was the Softsoap Limited Edition Iced Kiss Moisturizing Body Wash which is a festive fragrance of peppermint transforming your bathroom into a spa like experience. At only $2.97 you can afford to treat yourself and add it into your stocking at Christmas. I know several people on my gift list are getting Softsoap inspired gifts to help them celebrate the holidays.
