Samantha's Bedtime Accessories.

Historical Nighttime Necessities are a Historical Character's accessories associated to bedtime. These were frequently called the "Nighttime Necessities" as well.

Originally these sets often included a book, a method of heating or lighting at night such as candles or lamps, and/or a method of washing up in the morning. Until the widespread use of indoor plumbing, people did not do morning or evening toilet care (such as face washing) in a bathroom, as privies, necessaries, outhouses, and other places with the toilet were a distance from the house and only used for human elimination due to levels of filth. Therefore, people kept these items nearby for morning or evening use.

With BeForever's release of bedroom sets, practically every characters received new accessory sets. Many contained items similar to ones from various older retired sets.
