Homemade Spa Gift Basket Ideas


By Holly Campbell


Spa gift baskets are a great way to pamper a woman and make her feel like a princess. She gets everything she needs to rejuvenate and relax herself in the privacy of her own home. Although you can buy one from the stores and online retailers, it’s always nice to make your own homemade spa gift basket, which makes the gift really extra special.


Homemade spa gift baskets are alarmingly easy to put together and they can fit into most budgets. Use these creative ideas to make the perfect spa gift basket for your girlfriend, wife, mother, sister or any other special woman in your life.


Women love things that are beautiful and romantic so make sure that her spa gift basket appeals to her aesthetically. You can start with a pretty container such as a sliver wire basket or natural wicker and fill it with colored tissue paper to hold your gifts in place. Try using soft pastel colors – pinks, light blues, lavender – as they are often associated with femininity and elegance.


As an alternative to tissue paper, you can use lace, or satin. Otherwise, feel free to use whatever else you would like to fill the bottom with, such as plastic beads in assorted colors or even raffia straw.



What to Put in a Spa Gift Basket?

As far as what to put in the spa basket, you have many products to choose from. You can fill it with pamper items such as soaps, bath salts, bath balls, and essential oils. Body lotions, moisturizers, scrubs, pedicure and manicure sets, facial masks are also highly appreciated. If you like, include a loofah sponge, an exfoliating mitt, or an inflatable bath pillow in your gift basket as well.


You can also toss in a pair of aromatherapy candles of any soft shades in the gift basket to create a relaxing spa experience. Both candlelight and the scent of aromatherapy candles add to the soothing atmosphere of a warm bath.


If you want something a little different to set the mood, consider a mediation or classical CD. They cost very little and your recipient will enjoy it for a long time.


If you have an unlimited budget, or simply want to make a woman feel like a million dollars, consider adding a small bottle of fine wine or a box of good quality chocolate truffles.


However, if you decide to put in homemade cookies, make sure that they are well-wrapped and sealed so that fragrances don’t seep in.


Now that you have gathered the spa items, arrange them in a manner that’s pleasing to the eye – larger items in the back, the smaller items in front.


To add the finishing touches, wrap your homemade spa basket using wrappers with dainty floral or pretty colors, or put it in a clear cellophane bag for gift baskets. Then tie it with matching ribbon.


A homemade gift basket is great for just about anyone in your life as long as you take the time and thought to personalize it.
