Create a spa gift basket for your mother for the holidays. Your mother spends the whole year committing selfless acts for the family. Now it is time to give her something special for whatever holiday that you celebrate whether it be Hanukkah, Christmas, or Kwanzaa. This is a very easy to make gift that she will love.
What you will need:
A large basket (with or without a handle)
A bag of raffia or filler grass
A bottle of your mother’s favorite wine (If you mother does not drink wine, apple cider will do just fine)
A couple of bars of specialty soap (preferably a relaxing scent such as sea salt, lavender or aloe vera)
A bottle of bath gel (the same scent as your soap)
Body lotion (also of the same scent)
A bath mitt or sea sponge (the same color as the bath and body products)
A long 2″ piece of ribbon or similar to close up the basket
This basket is very, very simple to put together especially for you non-artistic folks. Fill the basket to the top with the raffia or grass. Place the bottle of wine or apple cider in first. Place it at the back center. Sort of dig the bottle in there. Then place the lotion and the bath gel on either side of the wine or cider bottle. Then arrange the soaps, sponge or mitt, and the chocolate candies.
Unroll, but do not cut yet, enough cello wrap to cover the basket and be able to tie the wrap up high. Cut the cello wrap. Cut a long piece of ribbon. Grab the cello wrap and tie tightly with the ribbon. Now create a bow. Cut the cello wrap evenly on the top leaving two to three inches of cello wrap. You are done. It was that easy. Your mom will love you for it.
