25 DIY Spa Gifts That Show How Much You Care


Here are 25 easy DIY spa gifts that will blow people away and cost pennies to produce. Add your DIY beauty products to a box or jar to create the wow factor.

25 DIY Spa Gifts That Show How Much You Care

Being a DIY enthusiast also has its own advantages aside from providing a creative outlet.

I discovered them when I started making spa treatments myself.

Soon I found myself giving away some of my creations to friends and family, much to their delight.

That’s when I decided to make personalized spa gifts.

And you can, too!

Today, I’ll share some DIY ideas I’ve uncovered that will make you the most thoughtful gift-giver for any seasons.

The best thing about gifting DIY spa essentials is that it sets no limits as to whom you’re planning to give them to.

It is age-inclusive, gender-flexible, and an all-around gift idea that is not restricted to bridal showers, girls’ parties, birthdays, and Valentine’s Day.

Here are some DIY spa projects that you can make as presents for the lovely people in your life.

1. Build Your Own Spa Gift Baskets

Take inspiration from actual spa kits that you see at the department stores.

While you have the liberty of including any spa item you’d like, the main point is to fit them all inside a basket.

It is best if you can find wicker or woven baskets that can hold around 4 to 5 spa items.

2. Include A Wooden Spatula To Your Creamy Body Scrub

Before ticking off body scrub in your list, don’t forget to include a tool for scooping up your body scrub out of the container.

Not only will it simplify pampering for your recipients, but it will also add some class to your DIY spa kit.

You can avail wholesale wooden spatulas online if you’re planning to host a giveaway for a batch.

3. Sneak In A Bottle Of Coconut Oil To Your Spa Kits

I think a spa kit won’t be complete without any mention of coconut oil in ingredients or having the actual bottled oil itself.

Coconut oil is known for its many benefits, especially on the skin.

It is a moisturizer, emolument, and aromatic essence that every spa session would definitely need.

They’re affordable, too. So buy a large container and transfer the liquid into vials or small bottles for gift-giving using a funnel.

You can get the tools for this here:

4. Use Gift-able Mason Jars For Your Spa Treatments

Whether you’re packing dry spa goodies or liquid treatments, you can put them in a jar to give them an artisanal look.

Mason jars are good for contents that need protection from moisture and air.

They help preserve the quality of the homemade recipes through the tight lids.

5. Use Fairytale Themes For Packaging Spa Items For Girls

I like incorporating Disney themes into my kids’ spa parties.

You can use fairytale princess characters as images for your spa labels and even their packaging.

If you want them to look like party favors, there are affordable character buckets online that you can use for arranging your spa giveaways.

It would look much like they’ve Trick-or-Treated for pampering goodies.

6. Make Giveaway Candles Using Inexpensive Molds

Another inexpensive gifting idea is to make as many candles as you’d like to give away using molds that come in batches.

Since beeswax and soy wax has now become affordable, you can simply pour them melted into several molds and cool them by batch.

It is time- and cost-efficient, and you’ll still be able to trim them carefully for packaging.

You can find all the ingredients, tools and accessories to make your own candles here:

          

7. Glamourize Your Gift For Mom With Aromatherapy Kit

25 DIY Spa Gifts That Show How Much You Care; Aromatherapy

A quick tip when planning your spa gift: never forget the scented oils for your mom.

Mothers usually have a hectic schedule to bother with some pampering.

So if her idea of relaxation is a simple bath, gift her with aromatic oils that she can infuse in the water as she soaks.

8. Combine All Of Your Creative Spa Ideas Into One Unique Set

You name it. Bath bombs, foot soaks, scrubs, etc.

Anything you’re able to successfully create, you can add to your spa set.

Make it unique. Give it a theme or just be spontaneous.

After all, variety is still preferable than none at all.

I have also found good instructions for easy bath bombs making.

As for foot soaks, you can just pack Epsom salts and essential oils that your recipient can use with a basin of water.

These recipes will be of some help to you:

9. Include An Instruction Sheet On How To Make DIY Spa Treatments

25 DIY Spa Gifts That Show How Much You Care; Colourful paper and stickers

Another exciting part of making DIY spa gifts is printing the labels.

But go the extra mile and include a fun brochure that tells your recipients how to go about the spa session.

Divide the brochure into sections explaining every step necessary to use all that you’ve put in their baskets.

If space still allows, elaborate further on the benefits of using such treatments in a fun, friendly tone.

This way, your recipients will have an idea of how to use them and maybe, how to craft their own versions.

You can print your labels and instructions in printable sticker papers so that you can customize them however you want and also as they are easy to use.

10. Add A DIY Bracelet Into Spa Kits For Friends

If you’re chummy with your gift recipients, you can even go “extra” by adding friendship bracelets that you yourself have made.

They can lend a natural appeal to your spa essentials as well.

You can buy a DIY bracelet making kit. Or watch the video below to learn how you can make a friendship bracelet without a kit.

11. Decorate The Inside Of A Kraft Box Containing Your Spa Gifts

Don’t just pack your spa items into the box.

Give them some puff to lie on comfortably.

You can use confetti, fabric, and styro balls to cushion the bottles and jars and protect them from accidental dropping.

They can also serve as camouflage for keeping the surprise until your recipient unravels each item from the box.

12. Use Manly Scents When Creating Spa Treatments For Men

Here are a few masculine scents that you can use for making spa essentials for men:

  • cinnamon
  • citrus
  • sandalwood
  • musk
  • cypress
  • peppermint
  • eucalyptus

Make sure to mention the essential oil names used so that guys will not be wary of using your spa items.

Also, you can gift them with essential oils such as in the above list so they can use them to soak in the bath.

13. Let Your Nature-Loving Spirit Shine Through With DIY Coffee Scrub

I love that this recipe for DIY coffee scrub doesn’t use new coffee grounds, which can be wasteful and not environmentally-friendly.

Instead of throwing away used coffee grounds, turn them into body scrub that exfoliates and brightens the skin.

Bonus: it’s also a good body scrub option to give to your guy friends or beau.

In a way, it’s considered a masculine ingredient.

14. Don’t Forget To Infuse Spa Treatments With Essential Oils

Your spa kit won’t be complete without the aromatic essential oils.

Although it’s recommended to use them sparingly, the few drops actually are enough to diffuse scent and be absorbed by the skin.

Mix and match certain essences and see how you like the smell of it.

Then label your spa items accordingly, meaning, you should mention if you made a fusion of oils.

You should also be aware that some people are allergic to oils such as olive and coconut, so better ask your recipients on one occasion.

15. Give The Gift Of Beauty With A DIY Lip Gloss

25 DIY Spa Gifts That Show How Much You Care; Easy DIY Lip Gloss That's So Natural You Could Eat It

For teens and women, you can include a DIY lip gloss in their spa kits for a beauty boost.

My homemade DIY lip gloss recipe is so easy to make and contains one interesting natural ingredient. Your lips will shimmer and look much plumper.

The main ingredients are blackberries, beeswax, coconut oil, and peppermint essential oil, all of which contribute to maximum protection against lip chapping.

There’s nothing more thoughtful than giving your recipients an opportunity to heal from problematic skin conditions.

This is why I suggest that you include witch hazel toner that can handle most sensitive skins, burns, and scars.

It can also be used on acne and fresh breakouts.

Check out this recipe on how to make homemade witch hazel toner.

17. Include DIY Cologne For Kids

Bath sets for kids are all the rage these days, which is why it isn’t uncommon for you to gift one.

However, you could make it more child-friendly by including a DIY cologne that has a squeal-worthy scent.

You’ll just need to combine a few drops of cool-smelling essential oil, water and a splash of alcohol.

Pour the finished product into plastic bottles with a punctured hole or a spray bottle.

Or watch the video below to make a slightly more advanced version of DIY cologne for adults.

18. Collect Rose Petals To Gift As Bath Infusers

If you grow a rose garden or just about any aromatic florals, you can use their petals as part of your spa kit for giveaways.

Petals are Bali-inspired bath infusers that enhance the therapeutic effects of a bath soak.

You can pack them a day before gifting, or you can let them dry at least a few days and still ensure their efficacy.

19. Include DIY Remedies For Dry Skin

Include self-grounded colloidal oats in your spa basket for particular recipients suffering from dry skin.

Add also a few moisturizers such as coconut oil or body butters to enhance skin hydration.

Here are some ingredients that help with dry skin:

If you want your sea salts for bath soaks to be colorful, you can put them in a Ziploc bag with a few drops of food coloring.

Shake well the bags and repeatedly knead the mixture until the color has dispersed throughout the dry salts.

21. Buy Wholesale Baking Soda For All Recipes That Need It

You’ll need plenty of baking soda for the following recipes:

  • bath bombs
  • shower fizzies
  • foot soaks
  • facial masks
  • facial scrubs

The best way to save on this ingredient is to buy wholesale since it’s much cheaper.

This is ideal only if you’re planning to gift all spa items to several recipients.

22. Mention Links To Tutorials In Your Gift Card

What’s more unique than a gift card that includes links to web tutorials?

You can also inspire them to try making their own DIY spa projects at home with such tutorial videos.

23. Make Your Own Liquid Castile Soap

Castile soap is a deep-cleansing, antibacterial soap that also moisturizes the skin.

And it doesn’t have to originate from Spain in order to qualify as one.

You can make your own by following instructions on this blog.

Give this gift to someone you know who is suffering from eczema or other skin problems.

24. Include A DIY Shaving Cream For Gifting Spa Kits To Men

25 DIY Spa Gifts That Show How Much You Care; Handsome Man Shaving

Lest I forget, you should also add natural shaving cream to a spa kit if you’re going to give it to a guy friend or relative.

Simply mix together ½ cup shea butter, 1/3 cup fractionated coconut oil, and 10 drops of peppermint or eucalyptus essence.

Blend well until it turns thick and creamy.

You can then store it conveniently in a Mason jar for gifting.

25. Include Epsom Salts As Remedies For Sore Muscles

Finally, you should also include Epsom salts as an instant freebie for your recipients.

The uses of these salts in bath range from therapeutic to calming and invigorating.

Simply put them inside an apothecary jar and label accordingly.

I like to use these apothecary jars.
