My DIY spa gift basket ideas can help you put together a present of real thought and luxury. There are so many great products out there for wellness, relaxation, and to create the spa experience at home.
Putting this basket together really got me in the mood for self-care. Often, we’re so tired and overwhelmed, it’s hard to know where to start. Having scrubs, oils, and essentials all in one place makes you want to pull out the calendar and find a Saturday night for some much-needed recuperation time!
DIY Spa Gift Basket Ideas
What I love about a DIY spa gift basket is that it makes for a great gift for so many people. I bet you can reel off an endless list of friends and family who are tired, constantly running around, and could do with an at-home spa day.
Use these ideas to help you put together a spa gift basket a parent, sibling, partner, or dear friend would love to have at home.
Let’s start simple. These items are super common for an evening in the bath or with your feet up on the sofa.
- Face Mask (like these beautiful ones on Amazon)
- Eye Mask
- Body Lotion
- Bath Bomb
- Bath Salts
- Bubble Bath
- Dry Brush
- Foot Masks
- Scented Candle
- Herbal Tea Set
For the Basket:
Here’s what I put the spa essentials in:
- Wicker Gift Basket
- Paper Shred Filler (to line the basket)
- Cellophane Wrap
You can buy these items separately. However, you can easily find gift hamper packs, both online like this one on Amazon and in-store, that give you all these items together.
Here’s how the basket looks once it’s wrapped. You could easily attach gift tags, gift certificates, and greeting cards to it, too.
The Nice-to-Have Additional Spa Items
If you really want to give the person you’re buying for the at-home spa experience, consider some of these items.
- Essential Oils
- Body Scrub
- Bath Caddy
- Spa Slippers
- Face Roller
- Neck Wrap
- Foot Lotion
- Foot Soak Crystals
Luxury Spa Items You Could Include
Working with a bigger budget? Pull out the stops and add some of these luxury items to your gift basket.
- Aromatherapy Diffuser
- Bath Pillow
- Bath Slippers
- Facial Cleansing Massager
- Neck Massager
- Eye Contour Cream
- Plush Robe
- Spa Day Gift Certificate
A basket like this could make for a really thoughtful gift over the holidays. Especially if you’re shopping for someone who’s always putting others before themselves, this gives them everything they need for a day or evening of much-needed relaxation.
Let me know in the comments what you ended up putting in your gift basket.
