Making Your Own Gift Sets

There are numerous gift sets out in the market for almost every occasion. However, because of their saturation, gifting them may seem lazy and impersonal. Prices tend to be jacked up because of cute packaging, and it’s actually a lot more cost-effective and fun to just make your own.

As we begin a new year, a slew of special events is set to approach yet again. This is why it’s good to have a standard, go-to gift on hand that any woman will love. It’s important to take the time to consider what to gift a person that they need. As covered in Baby Shower Gift Ideas That Parents Will Love, it’s best to start with a list of items that intended recipients actually need.

Since everyone needs to unwind and relax, here are some items to include when making your own gift set for any woman in your life:

Scented candle

Lighting a scented candle at the end of the day is one of the best ways to relax and feel like you’re in a spa. Oprah knows a thing or two about gift-giving, and her selection of candles is sure to please. She featured one of Amazon’s most popular candles which is Chesapeake Bay’s Joy + Laughter Scented Candle. It’s definitely a good bang for your buck, as it has a 50-hour burn time and comes in a number of scents made from natural essential oils.


Just about every gift set has a bar of soap or a bottle of body wash in it, and the soap to include in your gift set need not be something artificially scented. In fact, it may be wiser to consider a safe bet that’s well-known and already tried and tested. Pretty Me’s review of the popular Original Kojic Acid Soap discusses its numerous benefits, such as brightening and evening out skin tones, unclogging pores, and protecting against infections. Because it contains Vitamin E, it has anti-inflammatory properties and the coconut oil in it cleanses, smoothens, and moisturizes skin. It functions as a two-in-one as it can be used on both the body and face, at a very affordable price.

Best all-around lotion

It’s advised to immediately follow up a bath with lotion, so think about including a bottle in your gift set. Byrdie deemed Skin Trip Mountain Ocean Coconut Moisturizer as its best budget-friendly option, but it’s classy packaging and high-quality feel make it seem far more luxurious. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and contains moisturizing properties with ingredients like coconut oil, aloe vera, and lanolin. Its subtle coconut scent is sure to transport you straight to a beach vacation.


Baths are one of the ultimate forms of self-care, and when featuring a loofah, you can feel extra luxe and kiss your dead skin cells goodbye. Bustle’s number one pick for loofahs is Natural Spa’s Beauty Egyptian Organic Loofahs which come in packs of three––perfect for buying in bulk for gifts. Made from natural and chemical-free Egyptian cotton, they are durable, high-quality, and will not irritate the skin.

Eye mask

Harper’s Bazaar rounded up some of the best eye patches for brighter and younger-looking eyes, and cult-favorite St. Ives Hydrating Cactus Water and Hibiscus Hydrogel Eye Mask was one of them. Made from all-natural extracts, it revives tired-looking, dull skin thanks to the cactus and hibiscus extracts it contains which maximize hydration. An eye patch is an easy way to instantly feel pampered and any recipient is sure to love and use it. It’s extremely affordable so you can even pick up a pack for yourself!

This thoughtful selection is sure to make any recipient feel appreciated and relaxed. It’s time to get assembling!
