A bathroom tumbler is a flat-bottomed drinking glass that has no handle. Sometimes bathroom tumblers are used to hold toothbrushes or cosmetics brushes, or even to hold pens on a desk. Tumblers are sometimes made in small sizes to fit in bathroom cup holders.

Bathroom tumblers are typically kept next to the bathroom sink for easy access. Other bathroom accessories kept on the bathroom counter include tissue boxes, lotion pumps, soap dishes and guest towel holders. Some people also like to use jars for cotton balls, small dishes to hold small pieces of jewelry, or vanity trays large enough to hold perfumes and cosmetics.
