Bedside Table Essentials

I'm sure everyone has staple items that they like to keep on their bedside tables - I love organising my bedside table so I thought I'd share my essentials with you. The best thing about my bedside table is that it's actually a chair! My grandad made this for me when I was little and obviously I'm now well past the size to be able to sit in it so I've made it into my bedside table instead.

Lip balm - if you've read some of the other posts on my blog you'll know by now that I'm a lip balm addict! I always keep one on my bedside table and at the moment it's this vintage tin of aloe vera Vaseline.

Hand balm - I always apply hand balm before I go to bed so it's handy to have one right by my side! The one I'm currently using is Burt's Bees Hand Salve, which you can read more about in my previous post here.

 A notebook & a pen - I scrawl to-do lists and ideas in this notebook and keep it here because I often need to scribble something down in the middle of the night so I don't forget it!

A good book - I'm a total book worm and always have to be reading something. Right now I'm reading Trust In Me by Sophie McKenzie which is a whodunnit page turner that I can't seem to put down!

A magazine - The latest issue of Glamour is on my bedside table at the moment. I've already read it but I always keep a magazine by my bed to flick through.

Phone & charger - I rely on my phone for my alarm so always keep it by my bed and charge it overnight (I've read lots of horrible theories about how that is really bad for you, but here's hoping those theories are proved wrong!)

What are your essentials to keep by your bed? I'd be particularly interested to hear if any of them are different from mine!

  2. Haha I like that your bedside table is a chair. It's probably handier than an actual table to be fair, because you can drape clothes other the side.


    1. Yes it is a bit random but you're right it is more useful!
