The best way to look fabulous is to feel fabulous, and a healthy habit of good self care is a great place to start. However, with busy lifestyles and obligations, most people struggle to take the time to pamper themselves and relax their body and mind. That’s why giving the gift of self care is always a thoughtful choice when it comes to birthdays, holidays or just showing some love. Plus, you don’t have to break the bank to help a friend splurge a little on themselves.
Give a Luxurious Gift Basket
A trip to the spa can be expensive and a gift card may only get your loved one part of the way to a relaxing treatment. Instead, you can purchase gift baskets under $50 to help them relax and unwind at home on their own time. Fill it with indulgent treats and fine wines and tools to help them de-stress, like aromatherapy candles, relaxing eye masks and massagers.
Plan an At-Home Spa Day
If you’re looking for a gift for a close friend that you can enjoy together, plan an at-home spa day and enjoy catching up while you detox and rest in the comfort of your own home. Choose some ready made facials, foot soaks and scalp treatments and pamper yourselves from head to toe. You’ll spend a fraction of what it would cost to book appointments, and you’ll be able to enjoy the whole process together.
Create Your Own Homemade Skin Care
If you’re looking to give a high quality gift while sticking to a tight budget, consider making some homemade skin care products, like skin treatments and scrubs. Using all-natural ingredients like essential oils, coconut oil, coarse sugar and sea salt, you can make a variety of products that are great for your skin and easy on your wallet. It’s also extra thoughtful since it will be made by you!
If someone in your life could use less stress and more me time, these budget friendly gifts can help them care for their body and mind through a little extra pampering.
