You don’t necessary have to get a wooden coat rack with a deer antler head on it if you don’t wish. You can select from plain ones or ones with other decorative items on them as well to fit your recipient’s style.
5. Wooden Coasters

That’s where bath caddies come in. These lay over your tub to hold the items that you want, such as a book, candles and decorative vase of flowers. You can even get one like the one pictured here that has a nifty little slot for a wine glass.
