A Pampering Present

Sometimes it’s a challenge to come up with gift ideas for the special woman in your life. But you don’t have to stress over it or revert back to a tired, generic bouquet of flowers from the grocery store.

The secret is to give her something that is an indulgence, something she can do for herself to feel better after a long day. Easier said than done? Well, guys, this thoughtful gift will require a little insight on your part. Take a moment to think about what your mother/wife/girlfriend really likes. Is she a girly- girl who is into things like makeup, nail polish and the best self-tanning lotion? If you answered yes, then the lady in question probably would love a gift basket filled with spa goodies so she can pamper herself at home.

Thoughtful Contributions

Of course, you can take the easy way out by purchasing a prepackaged gift basket; and really, there’s nothing wrong with that. But you’ll score bonus points if you personalize the basket with items you picked out yourself. In case you’ve never been to a spa or don’t know where to begin, here’s a general list of what to include for spa pampering supplies and a few ideas of how to personalize them for your loved one.

  • Basket: Choose a style that will fit well with the bathroom décor or replace the basket with something she can repurpose. For example, a large clay pot can hold a houseplant after your mother/wife/ girlfriend used all the spa products.
  • Washcloth and towels: Look for the softest material you can find in her favorite color. If you want to personalize it, inquire about monogramming.
  • Bath pillow or eye pillow: While not absolutely necessary, these cushions add more comfort for when she’s relaxing in the tub. If you’re going with the eye pillow, look for one that can be chilled for an extra soothing or an herbal variety for aromatherapy. Click here for more information about herbal eye pillow.
  • Milk bath or bath salts: Test out different fragrances. Try to find one that matches her favorite flowers. If that’s too florally, go with a “safer” scent such as vanilla or cinnamon.
  • Mani/pedi tools: Splurge on some high-end quality nail clippers, files, tweezers or a set that includes it all.
  • Body lotion or oil: Search for formulations containing cucumber, extra virgin olive oil, avocado and other natural ingredients that sounds deliciously good for you.
  • Self-tanning lotions: If your special lady likes to give her skin the necessary TLC to keep it healthy, soft and wrinkle-free, then most likely she avoids the harsh effects of sunlight and tanning beds. If she instead applies a self-tanner, then find out her favorite brand and shade and replenish her supply.
  • Final touches: If you can think of anything else she’ll appreciate it, such as chocolates, magazines or books, then throw it in there, too.

Compiling a gift basket may take a little more effort than picking up flowers on the way home from work, but she’ll undoubtedly appreciate your thoughtfulness every time she indulges in an at-home spa treatment.
