If you want to give a gift basket to your best friend, mother, sister or female co-worker, here’s an idea for one!

This gift basket contains:

  • A body scrub;
  • A scented candle;

  • A face roller.

It has everything to make her feel good, relaxed and warm! A beautiful scented candle not only smells nice, but it can also add a nice touch to the overall atmosphere and aesthetic of her room or home. Choose any of her favorite coffees or teas. If you want this basket to have more of a relaxed-evening-feel choose tea or coffee that has no caffeine, for example, rooibos tea.

While chocolate is mostly seen as unhealthy, dark chocolate is the way to go! It contains a lot of soluble fiber and minerals and may reduce heart disease risk.

The face roller improves blood circulation in the face, decreases puffiness, soothes the skin. On top of that, it’s a long term product. A body scrub promotes skin hydration, removes dead skin cells and even reduces stress.

Either they match by the color or they have some matching texts on them. Fresh fruits are essential part of a healthy diet, so make sure they get all the vitamins they need. If they don’t live nearby and you worry that the fruits will go bad, choose dried food or nuts instead.

Essentials oils have many benefits. First of all, they simply smell nice and make home feel even more home-y. Secondly, they reduce stress, improve sleep and can improve one’s well-being. Choose oils that are made from natural ingredients.

Different kinds of syrups is a great thing to keep at home. Especially, when the cold season is just around the corner. Syrups make a great drink, they can be used in sauces marinades and desserts. Extra points, if you make the syrup yourself!
