If you are going to create a gift basket, you'll need to decide which spa products you are going to gift and how much you want to spend. Keep in mind the products should be good for any skin type. This is where body washes, scrubs and moisturizers would be great items. Additional items to add to your basket would be a candle for ambiance, plush wash cloths, loofah (or body brush), bath fizzies, lip balms, shampoos and conditioners, head wrap, foot care products, nail polish, and foot files. For a more luxurious gift basket you can add a pair of slippers, spa wrap or bath robe.
Next, consider thinking outside the basket. What are some other items
that can be use instead of a basket: small to medium cosmetic bag, pair of slippers holding foot care items, shower caddy or water proof wire basket.
If all else fails, pick up a gift certificate. You can add this item to a small gift basket to increase the value or you can just give the gift certificate. Many spas have specials when it comes to gift certificates this time of year. You may be able to get a bonus gift certificate if you purchase one for a specific dollar amount. At our student spa, you can receive a free $10 gift certificate, when you purchase $50 in gift certificates.
Whatever you decide to put into your gift basket, have fun creating the experience for the person who is receiving it!
