I love making gift baskets. I can choose how I want the gift to be and save a little money as well, as I can put whatever I like in it for whatever price. Some pre-made gift baskets can be a little pricey, but making your own gift basket is a great idea for anyone on a budget, as you’re in control of the entire gift.
Whether it is for a party, prize, or anytime you want to give a present, bath and body gift baskets can be nice. A lot of people love receiving bath and body type stuff. They smell good, look nice, and can save them money in buying bath and body products later on.
If you would like to make a bath inexpensive bath and body gift basket, then here are a few places you can shop for these specific items.
The Basket Itself.
The Dollar Tree is a great choice for getting a gift basket. You can find different baskets for a very low price of one dollar. Gift baskets can vary by colors, sizes, material, and maybe even shapes. This will allow you to pick the basket of choice. With the price only being a dollar, this will allow you to more than one basket if need be.
Wal-Mart is another good place for gift baskets. You can find almost anything at Wal-Mart and the prices aren’t that bad either. If you have a Five Below near you, you could consider checking there for baskets. At Five Below, nothing is over five dollars, so you already know the price range going in.
You actually don’t have to use tissue paper, but some people prefer to use it in gift baskets. So I will include this for those who want to use it. You find usually find tissue paper that will go with your basket, and any that are left over can be saved for other gifts.
If you want a really inexpensive pack of tissue paper, then once again, The Dollar Tree would be a great choice. I have found packs of atleast six, and of course it’s only a dollar. Not bad, right?
Two other stores I would suggest are Wal-Mart and Five Below, as you can find them for about a dollar there as well. There are more stores you can check, such as Rite-Aid, The Family Dollar, and just about anywhere that sells party and gift supplies. Tissue paper is usually inexpensive.
Bath and Body Products.
While some bath and body products can cost quite a bit, you can still find nice and inexpensive products for your gift baskets.
First off, you may want to think of what you may want to consider. For girls you can include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body spray, hand or body lotion (or both), and maybe a scrubbie (regular or a special shape or animal design). For guys, you can include shampoo, body wash, shaving cream, men’s deodorant or spray, shavers, and a scrubbie. For children, you can include shampoo, maybe conditioner, bubble bath, body wash, body spray for girls, bath toys, and a colorful or fun scrubbie. What products and their colors and scents you include will depend on the person you are creating this basket for. But you can find most, if not all, of these products for decent prices.
Stores to find these products for reasonable prices include The Dollar Tree, Wal-Mart, Five Below, The Family Dollar, Rite-Aid, Target, and probably Big Lots. There are probably many more places to check. It’s good to price around. My first choice would be The Dollar Tree, since it’s more affordable when buying more than one item, but it’s really up to you what you get and where you get it from. But those are the stores I would personally check first.
Once you get the items of choice, put them together in your gift basket (with the tissue paper in the basket and the items on top if you choose to use it) and there. You have just created your own inexpensive bath and body gift basket!
