While the most popular gifts are jewelry, flowers and candy, relaxing bath and body products make great gift ideas for all women. What’s not to love? From spa accessories that help her enjoy a nice long bath to skin lightening creams that help her complexion glow, she’ll be reminded to treat herself.
Check out these bath, body and beauty treatments for a truly indulgent Valentine’s Day that she will never forget!
Of course, bath bombs are a must-have for the most relaxing bath experiences. Some bath bombs fizz and others release color and sparkles into the bath. Looking for something truly unique? Some bath bombs even release petals into the water.
You can find almost any type of bomb you want and, yes, you also can make your own bombs! If you really love to DIY or need a gift idea that may be easy to include the kids, try this bath bomb recipe by Wellness Mama.
Scented Lotions or Soaps
The craze for scented lotions and shower gels has never really subsided. Everyone has their own signature scent, though, and this can make buying the right product a bit tricky if the mom in your life already has her go-tos.
If you share a bathroom, you probably know the scents she loves. Another way to get out of the scent conundrum is to purchase a bath set that includes multiple fragrances. She might not like every product, but the fun is trying out different fragrances.
Shaving sets make a practical but still pampering gift. Sets usually include a high-end razor and luxurious creams as well as moisturizing after-shave products. You also can create your own shave set made up of her favorite products; buy a large gift basket and fill it with bath and shaving products as well as cozy slippers and/or a monogrammed bath robe.
Aromatherapy may be just what the busy mom in your life needs to help relax after a long day, or get her second wind for an afternoon between meetings and soccer games. Create an apothecary gift basket filled with a selection of bath oils. Don’t worry about favorite scents for this gift; you should include a variety of oils that offer many benefits. Citrus is invigorating, lavender is calming, and lemongrass oil also may uplift.
Cosmetics & Beauty Products
For women who love cosmetics and beauty products, you may choose gifts that help her complexion sparkle! Create a cosmetic themed gift basket featuring unicorn (or rainbow) highlighters, contouring cosmetics and beauty products that help lighten sun spots and brighten the complexion and, of course, mix in favorite lipsticks, shadows and more! If you’re unsure which shades or hues to select, choose products that are universally flattering. Think tinted lip balms that help soothe dry lips, neutral palettes and brightening serums that work for all complexions.
Valentine’s Day will be here soon, so it’s time to start planning! Flowers and chocolates are must-have gifts (as is the perfect Valentine), but this is the ultimate holiday for pampering products for moms who need more than romance. Bath bombs, scented lotions, essential oils and beauty products all make luxe gifts that will help her unwind, relax and feel appreciated!
