What Will I Need to Create a DIY Spa Hamper?

  • 1 x woven basket - the more rustic the better! If you’re struggling to find one (we’re looking at you Mr/Ms last-minute) then you could always go for a decorative box instead.
  • Ribbon & shredded paper (optional) – these decorative touches will add that luxurious edge
  • As many spa-inspired treats as you like!
  • Homemade voucher – if you’re aiming for that ‘daughter/son of the year’ award then throw in a little IOU in the basket too for a pamper session together that she can cash in whenever she wants.

Top At-Home Spa Treats for Mum

Treatment: Manicure & Pedicure

Being waited on hand and foot (literally) is one of life’s little luxuries so give your mum the tools to enjoy a manicure or pedicure in the comfort of her own home. For her feet encourage her to buff away dead skin with an electric foot file – it’s such a game changer – and moisturise easily using foot socks. And for her hands, stock up on some new nail polishes to brighten up her ever-growing collection.
