Give a Spa Gift Basket to a Hardworking Friend

Apr 29, 2008
You almost certainly are acquainted with a few overburdened women. They put in a jam-packed day at work to help make ends meet, and then they arrive home to get supper on the table, clean up and spend some time with the kids. You can't help but respect their commitment and hard work. A pleasant surprise for this woman would be a spa gift basket to give her an opportunity to unwind and indulge. Consider these suggestions to create a personal gift to show your admiration.

Start by searching for an elegant basket. You might want to check out craft stores, discount stores or even a second hand store for just the right basket. Make sure it's large enough to hold everything that you plan to include. You might even want to paint the basket to match your color scheme.

Next you'll select the contents of your spa gift basket. Keep in mind that the whole point of this present is to persuade your friend to unwind, so look for items that will make over her bathroom into a luxurious spa experience.

Your first item should be a towel. Find a thick cotton bath towel with a coordinating face cloth or two. Roll them up separately and tie them with an attractive ribbon. Next, look for a scented candle that matches the towels. Set this in the middle of the basket, and arrange the towels around it.

Next you'll want to add some bath products, again keeping to your color and scent theme. Bath oil or beads, specialty soap and bubble bath are good choices. Also, pick up a bath sponge or loofah for gentle exfoliation. Place these items around the candle, with an eye to balancing shape and size of the various products. You might wish to pick up a pre-made bath set containing a variety of products. Just open up the package and arrange the individual products however you desire.

The latest bestselling book and some relaxing music will make a lovely addition to your spa gift basket. Nothing relaxes you quite like music, and an enthralling book will take your friend's mind off her hectic schedule and help her unwind.

The spa experience doesn't have to end when the tub is drained. Add a bottle of body lotion for the icing on the cake. If you're going all out, add some creams and lotions targeted to specific body parts, such as feet, hands, or elbows.

An extra special touch would be to tuck in a gift certificate to a nearby spa. And best of all, include a written note offering to look after the kids for an evening so she can be worry-free as she enjoys her candle-lit home spa or uses her gift certificate for a relaxing treatment at the day spa.

A spa gift basket is a considerate present for any busy, overworked woman and will be much appreciated. It will revitalize her, erase the day's pressure, and get her primed to start over the next day.
