Girl’s Spa Gift Basket Idea

Every year I try to think of a unique gift idea for my god daughter’s birthday. She is such a special little soul, and I love her so much- so naturally the gift must fit. ūüôā

One time when we had her for a sleepover, I set up my house like a spa. And ever since, she wants to always play spa! LOL. So I thought it was only fitting I make her, her very own spa basket.

In this basket I included:

A cute homemade little sign with her name

A nail polish set

A silk spa robe

A pair of flip flops

A spa headband

A hair wrap towel

A lip gloss set

Body spray

Lotion

Water spray bottle

Rags

Gem stone set

Color changing candles (battery operated obviously)

A recipe for cucumber water

Paper cups, napkins & funky straws and a decanter for cucumber water

 

And everything kind of ended up in this pastel color theme, which I thought was super cute!

I bought everything in various stores as I was shopping around, however, I did get the robe, the gemstones and the candle set on amazon, and the body spray/lotion from bath and body works.

My god daughter ended up liking it, so I was very happy. I love giving gifts that have a theme to it, and I love making gift baskets!

So if you are in need of a gift idea for a young girl, try a spa basket! Let’s promote young girls learning self care early on. Because we all know life is stressful and being able to take time to yourself is important.

Sleep Hacks & Relaxation Basket- Gift Idea

I love giving gifts. Sure it’s fun to get them, but I enjoy coming up with an idea for someone based on their likes, personality, interests, lifestyle, etc. Gaining inspiration and putting together something you know they will enjoy, and get use out of.

Baskets are an easy way to go when deciding to gift give. Baskets can be filled with anything.

Here’s an example of one I recently gave my best friend for her 25th Birthday.

Let me explain-

My best friend is a teacher and has quite the busy, and at times¬†stressful¬†life. Sometimes she needs to slow things down and relax and get a better night’s sleep.

So keeping that in mind, I did some research on sleep hacks and things that would promote relaxation and put together this Sleep Hacks & Relaxation Basket with a Pamper Pouch.

This Pamper Pouch basically consists of nail care supplies to have herself a little mani/pedi time.

Here are some close ups- so you can see exactly what I put in the basket.

Below is the note I rolled up and put in to explain what each item presents.

*I included a lot of Lavender/Chamomile items, because they often promote relaxation and easy sleeping.

The Basket includes:

Those aloe vera socks were actually an idea I got from my best friend. She actually gave them to me as a gift for Thanksgiving and I fell in love with how soft and comfy they are. So I decided to return the favor and get her a pair too.

When your basket is complete you can then wrap in a clear cellophane and add some pretty ribbons and bows. I unfortunately forgot to take a picture of that. But it’s simple enough, for you to get an idea of what I mean.

Baskets are so fun, you can make anything into a basket and you can get really creative and really personal with them. However, building them can vary in price. I mean you have to think about your budget and go from there.¬†I tend to keep buying¬†and adding and getting ideas as I go, so¬†although the items I included were mostly reasonably priced,¬†altogether it ends up being a¬†pretty penny, but a well rounded gift. And¬†my best friend’s reaction¬†was golden. I enjoy¬†putting smiles on people’s faces and making them feel special. ¬†¬†

So if you are searching for a gift idea. Give basket making a shot. And have fun with it! 

And next week I’ll tell you all about how I created a dress up trunk for my God daughter!
