Relaxation Gift Basket Idea

As you already know, I love creating gift baskets.  I’ve shared quite a few different arrangements with you already, if you missed them, you can view them in my post gallery here.

Recently I did a relaxation/towel/bathroom gift basket as a bridal shower gift. It could be used for mothers (mothers day is coming up soon ;) or anyone in need of a little relaxation.

Buy your supplies from any store.  I found my items from Costco and Ross.  A few ideas would be: towels, hand towels, wash cloths, bubble bath, sponges, back scrubbers, bath salt, lotions, potpourri, candles, soap, shampoo, a good book, etc.  You get the idea.  Anything that goes along with relaxing in a nice bubble bath.  Don’t forget to get a basket or bin to arrange the items in and some paper shred and tissue paper.
Lay the items out.  If you want, remove the price tags from each piece.  Unless you are leaving a gift receipt inside the basket, then just remove the price part of the tag or mark the price out with a sharpie.
I rolled the towels and wrapped them with ribbon that I had on hand, just to give the towels a bit of a custom look.
I simply start filling up the basket, arranging the items until I like the look.
After getting all the towels, hand towels and wash cloths into the basket, I used white tissue paper to fill the empty space, before adding the rest of the items.  This allows for the items to stay more of top of the basket, vs. falling to the bottom.  You can use a small cardboard box as well.
:)
Then I just placed the rest of the items on top of the tissue paper and once I liked where everything was, I filled in the open areas with brown paper shred.
:)
add some cellophane around the basket, tie with a ribbon bow and voila!  You're ready to deliver your gift.

May you be a little inspired!
Until next time,

  9. My kids make these kinds of baskets for their friends for birthdays, holidays, etc... They can be made for ANY age. Crayons & color books, art supplies, reading books, bubble bath, hair binders, make-up, nail polish, etc... They have always been a BIG hit!
