Bathroom baskets can be really a life safer for your guests.

We put together a list of items and some tips  that we always consider when planning our weddings in Portugal.

It’s important to get the correct size so when you’re visiting your venue, remember to measure the counter space in the toilets. If there isn’t much counter space, ask for a stool or small table to hold the bathroom kit.


(Items that can go in both the men’s and women’s bathrooms)

1. Beauty and Grooming:

  • Comb and brush
  • Lip balm
  • Lotion
  • Hair spray / gel
  • Deodorant (ideally get an aerosol deodorant so guests don’t have to share a roll-on)
  • Nail clippers
  • Scissors
  • Sun cream (as the sun can go really strong in Portugal)

2. Emergency Situations:

  • First Aid Kit
  • Safety pins
  • Stain remover (tip mini stain remover pens can be bought online)
  • Tissues
  • Sewing kit

3. Other:

  • Chewing gum/ mints
  • Mouthwash and mini cups
  • Dental floss
  • Toothpicks
  • Lint brush
  • Cotton buds (also good for fixing makeup!)

4. Additions for the Women’s Bathroom Basket:

  • Clear nail varnish (for runs in tights)
  • Hair pins and hair ties
  • Earring backs
  • Nude / black tights
  • Nail glue
  • Makeup remover wipes
  • Sanitary towels
  • Tampons

5. Additions for the Men’s Bathroom Basket:

  • Shoe polish
  • Black / white socks
