This year has been a stressful mess (to put it lightly). 

So, it makes sense that one relaxing gift idea is trending just in time for the holiday season. Searches for bath trays have increased by 100 percent on Google this week, and are rising on Pinterest, as well.

Any bath lover could make great use of these tranquil tables, especially if they like to bring accessories, candles, or electronics in with them during their home spa time. The caddies keep everything upright and within view, and can help allow for an even more relaxing time. A warm soak, Netflix, and a glass of wine (or cup of rich hot cocoa) are pretty much the trifecta for tuning out busy workdays and stressful schedules.
