Homemade Spa Gifts Ideas For A Relaxing At Home Spa Day
Homemade spa gifts and ideas for a relaxing at home spa day. Here’s what to put in an at home spa day kit or spa gift basket.
Wedding, bridal shower, graduation, Mother’s Day, or just another birthday, it’s common to come up with a blank for a gift idea. Especially if you wait until the last minute and the only things left on the gift registry are a toilet ottoman or a fancy espresso machine you can’t afford. (I’m not naming any names…) And no one wants to give the same gift at every wedding, especially not every Mother’s Day.
So, the search begins browsing several stores and still coming up short! At this point, you’re obviously looking for a one-of-a-kind gift, and that’s often not something you can find in a store.
And that’s what led you here – am I right? Good for you because I’ve got several homemade spa gift ideas that I’ve made and given as gifts on multiple occasions. They’re always a hit and even more incredible when you put them together into an at home spa day kit or spa gift basket!

What can I put in a home spa gift?
What do you put in a homemade spa gift basket, or how do you create an at home spa day kit? It all starts with a DIY spa product, such as a milk bath in a jar, a dreamy body scrub, or decadent bath bombs.
I’ve covered this first step for you below with easy-to-follow recipes to make with all-natural ingredients you may already have in your pantry. Trust me; you will sink into these homemade spa gift ideas to create an at home spa day kit for less!
The next step is to add something to the DIY beauty product to help create a spa-like retreat at home. A classic white waffle towel, spa slippers, a massage tool like a Gua Sha massager, or a dry brush makes a great addition to a spa basket. Swipe through these ideas to get you thinking:
Once I’ve made my beauty DIY and gathered a few spa accessories, I like to tuck them into a small basket you can find in the bath aisle. A large apothecary-style glass jar like those in the kitchen storage area works great too.
