A spa in a jar is a gift that can be given on many occasions such as valentines day, birthdays or Christmas. You could also give it to a friend or relative who just needs a little cheering up, Its the perfect self care gift in todays uncertain times!
I’ll list all the items in my spar in a jar, however you can easily change these to suit the recipient. The jar I have used is a Kilner round clip top storage jar. You don’t need to use the same jar but make sure the opening is large enough to fit all the items in.
The items in my spa in a jar:
When popping the items in the jar, try to arrange so the labels can be seen from outside. This way the recipient can see straight away what’s inside. It may take several attempts to get all the items looking the way you want inside the jar but just keep adjusting, you’ll soon get it looking perfect!
Once satisfied with the look of the jar its time to add on some decorations. I prefer simple decorations so have just attached some ribbons and a label. You don’t have to stop there you could literally add any other decorations you wish.
You can either attach a store bought gift tag or make your own personalised gift label. If you would like to the use the label I have used, you can download it here.
Wandering what else you could put in your spar in a jar?
You could make it travel themed with some travel essentials such as a travel sized toothbrush, toothpaste, sanitiser wipes, hand sanitiser as well as some travel shampoo, conditioner and soap bars.
How about a manicure or pedicure kit with a selection of tools, nail polish and maybe include some homemade foot scrubs and soaks.
You could also add some candles, chocolates, and maybe an alcoholic drink such as a miniature bottle of wine or ingredients for a cocktail or two?
The list of items you can use is truly endless. These spa in a jar gifts don’t also have to be for the females in your life. How about putting together a gift for the man in your life after all they need some pampering now and again too!
