DIY: How To Make A Spa Gift Basket Under $20

Please share!

Around the holidays it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the amount of presents we need to give but you can make your own spa gift basket in just minutes. The best part is that it’s really easy and it won’t break the bank. Depending on how big you want to make the gift basket, you can spend as little as $10.

I made this beautiful basket for under $15 for a close friend that has been going through a lot of stress lately. If you buy the items (such as the beauty bars or body washes) in bulk, you can save even more and make several baskets to give as a thoughtful holiday gift. If you have kids, have them help you; it’s actually fun to make gift baskets!
