The holidays can sometimes have you stumped for gift ideas. Often times, we’re at a complete loss for the perfect gift. But what if the perfect gift was really several gifts? I love the idea of making your own Christmas baskets. All you have to do is get yourself a wicker basket at the Dollar store, fill it with tissue and load it up with products your gift receiver needs and uses.
A gift doesn’t always have to be some huge surprise. Giving the beauty-addicted gal a basket full of goodies shows thought. Plus, it’s a great opportunity to open people up to new products that they may otherwise never try on their own.
Makeup baskets are always good, but I’m a big fan of skin care baskets. It’s the most important part of our beauty routines yet it’s the part most people pay the least attention to.
I love this cute Olay Gift Set ($12.99 — pictured above). It comes with a cleanser, toner (very important!) and a face washcloth. It’s affordable, useful and actually essential. I have this set myself and it makes my skin look and feel clean and fresh in no time.
A basket only works if it has several products, so use your imagination and add a few more goodies you think your gal pal might need. I’m a sucker for the Olay Thermal Pedicure Treatment ($15.99 — pictured above). It’s an amazing product that hydrates the feet during the harsh winter weather. Hard, dry feet? Not hot!
This holiday season, don’t wrack your brain thinking of what ONE gift will please your friends and family. Put a touch more effort and make your own basket…and keep your budget happy at the same time.
