Super personal, DIY gifts are all the rage right now. After all, isn’t it sweet if you put much thought into a gift and make it special for someone you love? If you have a beloved you want to surprise and are looking for ideas, then here’s one curated blog on how to make a perfect skincare gift hamper. Be it your mom or your sister, your bestie or your girlfriend, wife or daughter… a sweet hamper with the following goodies will surely make their day (and their week or month, depending on how fast they get through the bunch)!
What to Include in a Perfect Skincare Gift Hamper?
1. Face Wash
A face wash is every woman’s essential. It is used in the shower, in the toiletry kit, as a travel-sized tube in the bag and at every point of the day when they need a refreshing pick-me-up. So make sure to include a face wash in your hamper. Try and be neutral in your choice, and pick a face wash for normal or combination skin as it usually works mildly for most skin types. In case you happen to know or find out what skin type your loved one has, then you have brownie points as you can buy a specific face wash for them!
The same goes for moisturiser. It is not just a fancy cream that women enjoy applying on their faces. A moisturiser is another skin essential, and therefore important in this perfect skincare gift hamper. It brings that soft glow and suppleness to the skin and is best gifted to cater to their particular skin type. If you can’t find out their skin type, don’t worry. The market has ample moisturisers that cater to all skin types.
Face masks come in many forms — sheet masks, clay masks, cream masks etc. They either come in packaged sheets or tubs. They are generally not as skin specific as they are feature specific. Some masks are meant for hydration, while some are meant for glow. But all masks are meant to pamper and luxuriate
Serums are expensive, but where do we count pennies when we pack hampers of love? So try and find out what skin problem is troubling your loved one, and pick a serum accordingly. Serums come in many forms and types, from anti-aging serums to hydrating ones, pigmentation serums to acne-fighting ones. In case you don’t know the specific details of the person you are gifting it to, pick a hydrating or radiance-inducing serum. These are safe options and work for almost everyone.
5. Facial Mist
A facial mist is like an instant moisturiser-cum-face-wash-cum-perfume for the skin. It’s not an essential, but good to have in the bag for those tired long days. A facial mist comes in spray form, and you can just spritz it on your face on the go to refresh your skin and get an instant glow. Get one for your loved one and pack it into this hamper as a gesture of your thoughtfulness.
6. Facial Gift Certificate
To make this skincare gift hamper more wholesome, add a facial gift certificate too. It means you are gifting them not only things but also an experience. An experience that is meant to relax, replenish the skin’s lost energy, and rejuvenate the skin’s glow. Facials too come in many types, from rejuvenating to Vitamin-enriched, anti-oxidant to intense repair. You can get one from a wide range of selection at Savarnas Beauty Spa, or just go for the Custom Facial, which will be tailored to your loved one as per their skin’s needs. You can easily contact Savarnas Beauty Spa or book online to generate your gift certificate.
7. Scented Candles
Another thing/experience to add to the hamper is a selection of scented candles. They are a great way to enhance the mood, relax and even wind down for the evening. Some scented candles are specifically designed for moods, and you can pick the ones that you want your loved one to feel.
8. Berries & Nuts
Which gift hamper is ever complete without some food? Not this perfect skincare gift hamper for sure! So here’s an idea — pick out foods that are extremely healthy for the skin. This brings us to berries and nuts. Berries (cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries et al) are all very rich in antioxidants. You can curate a pack of fresh berries or go for the dried ones. Complement them with a jar of nuts, which are known to be rich in Vitamins like A, C, and E that are great for the skin. The best nuts to add to this snack-pack are almonds, pistachios, walnuts and pumpkin seeds.
9. Dark Chocolate
To end the blog for this perfect gift hamper on a sweet note — add some dark chocolate. Dark chocolate contains very high levels of antioxidants. This makes it amazing for the skin, especially for aging or mature skin. So make sure to find dark chocolate in some form for your hamper — be it as dark chocolate barks or bite-sized candy. You will definitely make the receiver of this gift hamper very happy.
