One gift that every woman can appreciate regardless of her personal taste is a spa gift basket. Life as a woman can be stressful with the day to day hassle of balancing work, family and just everyday living. A spa gift basket can provide a wonderful way for her to pamper herself, unwind and indulge in a bit of luxury after a long, tiring day.
One of the best things about choosing a spa gift basket for a woman is that it is a very personal gift, but it is a lot harder to mess up than gifts like clothing or jewelry since you don’t have to know her clothing size or her personal style to create a gift basket that she will love.
You can buy spa gift baskets that are already put together, however creating a custom gift basket yourself can be a way to make a beautiful, personalized gift from the heart that she will appreciate even more. Here are some tips on how to put together a customized, luxurious spa gift basket for the special woman in your life.
Obviously the first thing you will need to start putting together your spa gift basket is a basket. One of the things that makes this a special gift is the packaging, so be sure to choose a beautiful basket to hold all the treasures you will be putting inside. Shop around a bit since baskets come in a huge array of styles and materials ranging from traditional woven baskets to sleek, stainless steel baskets. You should consider her personal tastes when choosing the style of basket as well since it is something she can continue to use long after the bath products are gone.
Once you have your basket you can begin stocking it with beautiful spa items. Always keep luxury at the forefront of your mind when you are shopping for items to include in the basket. Consider getting a plush robe, beautiful cushioned slippers, rich scented bath products, sponges, facial products and anything else that you feel she would love to have to pamper herself. Candles and a CD of relaxing music or sounds also make lovely additions to a spa gift basket.
Ideally you will know what types of scents she likes so that when you choose the bath products you will be able to select items that go with her tastes. If you don’t know what scents she likes you may want to stay away from heavily scented products and opt for lightly scented products instead. That way if she isn’t crazy about the scent at least she won’t be overwhelmed by it.
To put the basket together you can either line it with fancy paper or use a plush bath towel in the bottom of it. Then artfully arrange the items that you have purchased in the basket to create a beautiful presentation. Finish it off with a handwritten card or note and you have a lovely, unique gift that she will be sure to enjoy and appreciate.
