Your guests will feel extra spoiled with these thoughtful accessories from Satin Serenity.

This sleek and elegantly designed satin robe is truly unique with satin on the outside and soft, minky cuddle fabric on the inside.

Get your beauty sleep on a luxurious satin pillowcase. Have it embroidered (with their names or a special message) to welcome your guests! Sleeping on a satin pillowcase not only feels wonderful, but reduces hair damage and bed head, minimizes the appearance of sleep lines on the face, and helps maintain moisture balance in the hair and skin.

Let your guests wrap themselves in first-class luxury with Satin Serenity’s Travel Blanket. Generously sized at 60” x 70”, this blanket is the perfect cuddle-up!
