Nothing beats stepping out of a hot bath and slipping into one of the best robes, and as the nights draw in there’s never a better time to embrace that cozy feeling.

The best robes for women have lounging potential that has no bounds. Throw one on over your fave leggings the moment you step into the house, or go all-out and join team loungewear with the best women's pyjamas and the best slippers for a Netflix binge on the sofa.

Whether you want to pretend you’re swanning around a fancy hotel spa in a waffle robe or you want to fully cocoon yourself in a fluffy blanket-style gown, there are a plethora of different robes to indulge in.

Fabric is key and depending on the temperature of your house, you may want something lighter like cotton or silk which you’ll be able to wear throughout the warmer months too. Silk feels particularly opulent if you’re looking for something high-end.

A luxurious bathrobe makes a crowd-pleasing gift too, so certainly one to consider if you’re after the best gifts for her.
