How to Create a Spa Gift Basket
A gift basket makes a great present to give during the holidays. If you are having trouble picking out just one type of gift to give this holiday season, why not pamper your family and friends with a spa gift basket? Spa gift baskets are easy to assemble and they allow you to give a range of gift items.
We've put together our recommendations and step-by-step details on how you can create the best spa gift basket that is sure to brighten someone's holiday.
Step 1: Pick a Theme for the Basket
We selected a spa basket theme for this article, but there are many other choices for a theme. If it is a holiday gift, you might want to have all Christmas or winter-themed items, like peppermint salt scrubs and vanilla spiced candles. You can go the traditional direction with basic spa and pampering items like bath salts and bath bombs, or include more items for beauty like face masks and body scrubs. There are several different ways to incorporate your own personal touch with a spa gift basket.
Step 2: Include Your Essential Oils
If you are making a spa gift basket, you probably want aromatherapy to be a major part of the gift basket items. For aromatherapy, pure essential oils are great gift ideas that the recipient can use for various purposes and really benefit from them on an emotional and physical level. With essential oils, there are several scent options. You might want to go with the popular scents of vanilla and lavender or opting to select seasonal scents (peppermint, vanilla, cinnamon, pine, etc) or you could select blends that encompass both.
Step 3: Select the Other Items
There are lots of other items you can include in a spa-themed gift basket for the holidays. The items to include will depend on your overall theme of traditional scents or the seasonal scents. If you are using essential oils in the basket, you might want to add in some carrier oils such as coconut oil or jojoba oil. If the basket is for a luxurious bath, include some bath items like a bath pillow, bath salts, sponge or loofah, and a few different types of soap or body wash.
I love candles and always include scented candles in my gift baskets. You might want to add a few candles and some bubble bath. For a larger spa gift basket, consider getting a small essential oil diffuser that they can use in the bathroom on the counter while taking their bath. Bubble bath is also a great item to include.
Step 4: Packaging Your Basket
Themed gifts have traditionally been assembled in a basket and wrapped in cellophane, which is always a classic way to go. However, consider thinking outside the box, or in this case, boxing your gift. There are beautiful gift boxes that range in size and shape that work well for packaging multi-gifts. This might be a great alternative depending on the size and shape of the items you chose for the basket.
Whatever method of packaging you choose, your gift recipient is sure to be appreciative of the time and effort you took to select the perfect items for the basket (or box) of gifts this holiday season!
