No matter what age you are, every gal likes to be pampered! And for some reason it’s usually the last thing we spend money on which is why these types of gifts are always appreciated so much! I’ve given some variation of a “Treat Yo Self” gift basket to pretty much every friend and family member over the years and the response is always the same- LOVE LOVE LOVE!

The best part is that you can customize the gift basket to fit your giftee. If you know they love bubble baths, give them a bath tray, bath bombs, and a candle. If they aren’t a fan of baths, customize a mask basket complete with masks for the face, lips and under eyes – aka the works. If they are a homebody, give them a cute pajama set, slippers and throw blanket because lord knows the majority of us will wear an old college shirt before dropping money on a new set of cozies. Do they like game nights? Give them a fun game, a bottle of wine and cute wine glass. Speaking of wine, literally every “Treat Yo Self” gift basket is instantly made 100X better simply by adding your giftee’s favorite bottle of wine or bubbly.

So even if you are last minute, this easy gift basket idea will look like you put plenty of thought and time into hand picking each component – talk about a win win! All of these items can be found on Amazon Prime (2 day shipping), Target (order online and pick up at the front counter), or Nordstrom (order online and pick up at the front counter).

Day 11: Gifts for the Beauty Queen


There are a few reasons I love being a girl. Make up, hair and fashion are pretty much at the top of that list. What girl doesn’t love a little pampering and beauty splurges? I don’t consider myself a beauty queen but Christmas is usually when I tend to stock up for the year on necessities and even a few wants.  Necessities include dry shampoo, perfume, mascara and eyeshadow. I ask for a new eyeshadow palette every year. In fact, I am asking for this one this year! Wants always include face masks. If you don’t know what beauty product to get your friend or loved one, you can’t go wrong with a face mask! They are the perfect pampering tool.

Day 10: Gifts for the Homebody


We all know somebody who would rather stay in than go out, drink wine on the couch instead of throw back tequila shots or spend Sunday brunch around the kitchen table instead of at a fancy restaurant. Let’s all raise our hands in unison! Almost everything that you see above is under $25 and would make the best gifts. I’m convinced that cozy gifts are the best gifts because they are usually something that everyone loves yet won’t always indulge in themselves.
