The Art of the Self-Care Gift (aka How to Put Together a Gift She'll Love)

by Kathy Strahs


Stuck in a gift indecision rut? Ditch the endless browsing and head-scratching! Here's the secret to creating an amazing self-care gift that's guaranteed to wow the special people in your life. This simple, three-step approach takes the guesswork out of choosing the perfect present and lets you focus on the fun part: creating an awesome gift box she'll love. 

Now, before you get overwhelmed by pages of bath bombs and hand lotions, let's break it down into three simple steps:

Step 1: Theme Time!

This is where you get to unleash your creativity. Pick a theme that reflects what you know your recipient enjoys, or what she might need a little more of in her life. Here are examples of different types of themes to get your creative juices flowing: 

  • Product Category Theme: Create a gift made up of items that are in a similar product category. Think bath and body bliss, or curate a tea lover's paradise. 
  • Mood Theme: Base a gift on a particular mood or feeling you'd like to evoke. Could she use a stress reliever? Design a "Calm Corner" box.
  • Motif Theme: This is all about aesthetics! Design a gift according to a look or style. For example, you might focus on florals, or a particular color.

Step 2: Pick Your Power Player

This is the star of the show! It should be a special item that reflects your theme and makes her eyes light up. Think of it as the "wow" factor. It doesn't have to be expensive -- just maybe the most valuable product in the mix. It could be a set of lovely aromatherapy shower steamers, a light-as-air scarf, or maybe a jar of artisan craft tea.

Step 3: The Supporting Cast

Let's surround your main act with some amazing backup! Choose 2-4 additional items that complement your MVP (most valuable product). Continuing the bath and body example, you might add a handmade bar soap, an eco friendly wooden soap dish, a fluffy shower pouf for ultimate lather, and a nourishing body butter.

Bonus Tip: Don't forget the finishing touches! Let us hand-wrap your gift in beautiful paper, add a personalized note expressing your love (or a funny inside joke!), and voila! You've created a self-care masterpiece that's guaranteed to bring a smile (and some serious relaxation) to your recipient's face.

So there you have it! With a little planning and some TLC, you can create self-care gifts that are as unique and special as the people in your life. Now, go forth and pamper!
