There’s something about a personalised hamper that we just can’t go past when choosing a present to spoil our loved ones with. Not only are you giving a thoughtful gift by carefully selecting each individual item, but they truly are one of the most versatile gifts on the market, and they can reuse the box as a keepsake! You can create a hamper full of goodies for any occasion. For the purpose of today’s blog, we’ve gone ahead and tailored the gifts to the theme of “Ultimate Relaxation”. This one is perfect for any ladies in your life who are in desperate need of some quality ‘Me Time’ time to unwind and relax.
So what should you include in your hamper? This is where the personal aspect comes into play. You need to make sure that each element of your hamper is tailored to suit your lovely lady’s needs. A hamper full of goodies they will actually use makes it that little bit more special! To help you out, we’ve come up with a list of ‘essentials’ that you can use as a starting point to create your own! Happy packing, ladies!
What is more relaxing than sipping a nice glass of wine while taking a long, relaxing soak in the tub? We’d personally like to say nothing! If your special lady is a lover of wine, this one is a no brainer. Make sure you pick up a bottle of something you already know she loves. This is not the time for experimenting with new tastes!
Scented candles are the perfect way to create an instant chilled atmosphere. Not only does candlelight produce beautiful mood-lighting, but a beautiful scent is proven to have positive impacts on your mood! Think carefully about this before you choose a scent. Try to reach down into the depths of your memory and pull out that recollection of the time she randomly exclaimed how much she ‘just loves the smell of roses’.
Snacks are essential to the relaxation process. They don’t call it comfort food for nothing! We recommend stepping it up past your usual block of choccie or pack of tim tams - she can eat those any time! Pick up that gourmet treat you know she loves but only buys for special occasions. She’ll thank you for it later.
What direction you take this in is completely up to you. If you know your special lady loves to take a nice long soak in the tub, pick up some yummy scented bath products to make the process that much more enjoyable. If she’s not the bath type, opt for a different kind of bathroom pamper. Face masks, body lotions, hand creams - the possibilities are endless!
A nice cup of tea before bed will cement the relaxation vibes. Pick up a pack of her favourite herbal tea to maximise the effect. If she’s not a big tea drinker, why not stick to the classics? Some good old fancy hot chocolate mix will do the trick just as well!
A Good Read
This is where you really get a chance to let your thoughtfulness shine. Does she have a favourite Magazine? Is she big on romance novels? Is she in need of some self motivation/inspiration? Major props to you if you manage to beat her to the punch and buy her that book you know she’s been hanging out to read forever!
So there you have it! We hope we’ve inspired you to spoil a special lady in your life with her very own, homemade and personal ‘Ultimate Relaxation’ Gift Hamper.
