There are a lot of different options for a spa day at home. I like to create a relaxing atmosphere (hello, wine and candles!) and treat my body with some natural skincare pampering, like a home facial.

Choosing which items go in the basket is almost as fun as choosing the basket itself. A woven basket, a small metal bucket, or a reusable bin are all good ideas for a gift box.

These spa-at-home recipes make great gifts. Some recipes are better for oily or dry skin. Choose which to include in your kit.
