DIY Bubble Bath Gift Box

Can I get a collective TGIF out there?! So excited for the weekend and so excited for this holiday season.  As if the fact that I birthed her from my body wasn’t proof enough of kinship, we were on our way to school one day this week and Parker said out of the blue, “Mama, Christmas music makes me so happy!”.  Me too, sister, me too.

Our to-do list includes finishing up our Christmas shopping and present wrapping, followed by a much overdo date night with Aaron on Saturday night.  I’m dying to see a movie!  Any recommendations?! (I’ve heard Arrival is amazing!)  If you’re looking for a weekend project, we made a DIY bubble bath gift box for teachers for my friend Eden’s site, Sugar and Charm, and am so happy with how they came out.

My only regret is I didn’t make about 8 more to give away as gifts! (They’re super affordable… keep reading below for the details! And for more DIY ideas, see here!)

items for the bubble bath gift box

What You’ll Need

  • A box. We used one that we had lying around the studio, but you can get them really cheap in bulk at your local craft store or Amazon.
  • Demi bottle of rosé.
  • A candle or mini candles.
  • Matches
  • Bath Salts (lavender is great!).
  • Crinkle cut craft paper.
  • A ribbon.

How To Make This Bubble Bath Gift Box – Step by Step

  1. Add crinkle cut craft paper or tissue paper to the bottom of the box to fill in.  We also added a few sprigs of eucalyptus to ours. You can forage for Magnolia leaves, rosemary, eucalyptus, holly berries or whatever else you have near by!
  2. Place in a Demi bottle of rosé.
  3. Place in a candle (These mini candles are one of my favorites and super affordable!).
  4. Add in some cute matches: A lot of local restaurants and hotels have cute matches.  Pick up a few on your next date night.
  5. Add in some lavender Bath Salts: We picked up the glass bottles from Hobby Lobby and then poured the bath salts that we bought in bulk at Central Market (a local grocery store) into them.
  6. Close the box, wrap with ribbon and voilá!

DIY Bubble Bath Gift Box – The Perfect Last Minute Gift!

Still hustling to get those last minute gifts? You can throw together this easy and fun DIY spa gift box idea that anyone would surely enjoy! It’s great creating AND receiving fun gifts like this. Not only do you get a lot of different items, it also shows that the giver took time (but not too much!) to think of the items to add and assemble the gift box.

A Great, Versatile Gift For Bath Lovers!

This basket is perfect for people who love to relax in the bath – they would love it for sure. You can add, substitute or remove elements as needed – add a bathrobe if you have a bigger box, face masks, or even a bath pillow.

The Relaxing Power of Lavender

The lavender bath salts are so relaxing! Lavender works as an anxiolytic (an anxiety reliever) and as a sedative, to increase relaxation and calm, and help bring about sleep. Lavender interacts with the neurotransmitter GABA to help quiet the brain and nervous system activity, reducing agitation, anger, aggression, and restlessness. The perfect remedy for a stressful day!

      Oh I wish I could remember, but it has been so long ago and I don’t have the boxes any more! It was a shoe box I believe so that should give you a general idea!
