Does your mum deserved to be pampered from top to toe this Mother’s Day? Of course she does! But, if your budget doesn’t extend to a full-on getaway complete with seaweed wrap and cucumber-infused water on tap, then fear not – we’ve got the perfect solution. Thoughtful and thrifty, this DIY spa hamper will spoil her rotten without breaking the bank.
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.
Whether she’s all about anti-ageing or on the hunt for instant hydration, a targeted facial treatment is sure to do the trick. Get your hands on a sheet mask (or 5!) and de-stressing skin saviours to get her feeling all zen-like.
Treatment: Relax & Rejuvenate
A spa is not a spa without some sort of relaxing instrumental soundtrack, intoxicating scents and mood lighting. So pack out your hamper with treats that can also help her set the perfect mood.
Treatment: Hair Rescue
Aside from an Indian head massage, the hair is often an overlooked part of a spa pamper package. But, not anymore. Choose a nourishing leave-in conditioner or hair mask and your mum can transform her usual bath routine into a more lavish affair.
