Pamper yourself gift jar.

My mum is pretty stressed out at the moment and I thought this ‘pamper yourself’ gift jar would encourage her to take some time out to herself (mums always seem to have trouble making time for themselves) and have a little mini pamper session. I included some mini pamper essentials items and other bits and bobs. I thought it would make a great gift idea for others too! I bought the jar from hobby craft for around £3.00 So here’s what I included..
A while ago I was sent some absolutely beautiful items from Rose & co. < link They sent me 3 beautiful little bath bombs they smell incredible, so I thought I’d give one to my mum. They also sent me this ‘lemon bon bon’ hand cream it smells absolutely incredible.. I loved it so much that I regretted giving it away to my mum instantly so I bought myself some off their website to keep in my handbag it smells so zesty! I also spotted strawberry cupcake body cream on their website mmm.. the items are packaged so beautifully too, always a nice little bonus I think makes things feel much more special! If you want to check out their website clickable link is above in pink!


An essie nail polish in ‘nice is nice’ as she is always admiring my pastel nail polish but she never treats herself! A mini burts bees body lotion as she stole my mini burts bees hand cream from a christmas set I had. If you have any left over things from christmas bath sets that maybe you don’t like the scent of or the brand they’re perfect for someone else instead of going to waste at the back of a drawer (which is usually always the case with me!)

A little yankee candle to go on the edge of the bath whilst having a long soak with lots of bubbles (I love doing that, so relaxing.) I was thinking of adding some chocolates in the jar too wrapped in a little organza drawstring bag because who doesn’t like eating chocolates in a giant bubble bath?! 
You can add anything you want to this jar really as everyone has different tastes. Maybe add a face mask sachet or a hair mask maybe some scented tea lights etc etc Boots are perfect for sample size mini goodies 🙂 Usually I would wrap this with a ribbon and add a gift tag but I’m seeing her tomorrow so I probably won’t have time!  I know a lot of my friends would like to receive something like this What do you think of this gift idea?

    Such a lovely idea! The candle is a wonderful touch, I love the fresh clean smell of that scent.

    I do this for gifts, makes it a lot more special when you buy little individual items that you know they'd like or mean something to them. I'm a big fan of packaging and especially like the hand cream one. Lovely colours indeed. Definitely add a bit of chocolate too, that'll be lovely. Hope she enjoyed the little treat and starts making some time for herself.

    This is a lovely idea. Me and my sister often have what we call a "Happy Nothing Day" gift. Just a gift when you see something pretty they might like or if they are stressed out.

  11. April 27, 2013 / 6:15 pm

    What a cute little idea! I love making things like this for my mum too! x
