Holidays and anniversaries are just around the corner and if you’re like me, pamper gift ideas are on your mind. I love pampering my beloved with delicious baths, relaxing massages or scrumptious spa days; but sometimes it’s hard to find something unique and thoughtful that they’ll really enjoy. Today I’m going to share some pamper gift ideas that will help you get a head start on shopping for those lucky men and ladies in your life!
Considerations when creating pamper gift ideas
1. Think about the recipient’s personality
First thing first, you should defenitely choose a gift to match your recipient’s style.
- Are they more of a sporty type? Try pampering them with an experience like getting their nails done at a mani-pedi spa or gifting them with fitness gear and accessories.
- Do they enjoy pampering themselves in the comforts of home? A relaxing bubble bath paired with some delicious pamper treats will do the trick!
- Do they prefer to be active outdoors instead? Why not buy them tickets for an outdoor adventure, such as skiing or kayaking, where they can get a little action while being pampered.
Think about what kind of things you know your recipient enjoys doing on weekends spent together already so you’ll have more ideas when it comes time to actually shop .
2. Find out what their favorite pampering activity is
Remember that pamper gifts don’t always have to be a spa day or massage!
- If you’re shopping for someone who loves hiking or cycling, maybe they’ll love a pampering gift of luxurious bath salts (or essential oils) so that their next outdoor adventure is extra-relaxing.
- If your recipient has an adventurous spirit and often braves the outdoors in winter weather, consider giving them pamper gits like heated gloves or socks for those really cold days.
- If they’re a pampering enthusiast, you might want to give them the gift of pamper nights in their own home. Consider giving them a set of luxurious bath and skin care products such as bubble bath, scented candles or diffusers, slippers for getting around the house at night time (or hiking boots if that’s what they like), pajamas with matching robes – anything that will make this person feel extra-special about themselves.
Regardless of what type of pamper gift you are looking at getting: make sure it’s something they will get use out of on a consistent basis – not just once every few months!
3. Consider how you can make it easy for them to use your gift
The easier its usage is, the higher chance your gift become their pamper routine.
- You may want to think of pampering gift basket which include pampering products that can be used together (i.e., bath salts, bubble bath with candle), or pamper gift sets which come in a compact travel bag for easy use at home or on the go.
- The giftee, like all of us, may have unsaid subtle “uncomfortabilities”, and it’s no good if your gift relates to one of those (like a scent they hate, a product type they never use…) So if possible, study their pamper routine. Do they enjoy baths, or do they like to use lotion before bedtime and really need a good exfoliating scrub to get all that dry skin off?
- It’s important that your gift matches up with this person so it becomes part of their pamper routine.
- However, if you’re unsure as to whether or not there will be an overlap in pampering interest then consider getting them something more general such as a gift card (i.e., Sephora), where they can buy whatever product suits their needs best!
4. Make sure your gift is something they will actually enjoy
You may want to consider that not everyone will enjoy the same pampering experience.
- For example, if your recipient doesn’t own a bathtub (but use shower instead), then pamper gift sets which include bath salts and bubble baths won’t be ideal.
- Avoid giving things like lotion or perfume if the person doesn’t wear those types of things already, and try to find out if it’s okay for you to give them food-based gifts before purchasing one
- Does your giftee have any allergies to food, or certain types of products? This is important! Before purchasing a pamper gift that’s edible, make sure it doesn’t include allergens such as nuts. It will be better for them if they know what all may trigger an allergic reaction from them beforehand so they can tell their doctor and avoid future reactions.
- You may want to consider a pampering experience that your recipient will enjoy – like, for example, spa day at their favorite salon or hotel.
- If you’re going with pamsing product as the pampering gift itself (i.e., hair care kit), then make sure it’s on-trend pampering products that they’ll actually use!
The best way to find out what your person’s pamper routine is all about – ask them!
You might also want to look at their social media accounts and see if you can find any clues there.
Just make sure it’s something they will get enough usage from so it doesn’t end up being an unnecessary waste of money
5. Don’t forget to pamper yourself!
You should always have some type of pampering activity planned for yourself when you are creating these types of gifts because otherwise, you may end up feeling resentful later on down the line.
6. Stick to your budget
Pamper gifts can vary from inexpensive to luxurious, so better find out your budget and stick to it.
- If you’re worried about budgeting, consider buying items from places other than stores so that your gift will be more personalized and less expensive. For example, you could pamper someone with a few different bath bombs or even some new pajamas. Pampering people with some breakfast in bed is actually a very good option too!
- If you could spend more, an expenrience in a spa resort will be appreciated. Another suggestion is to pamper someone by giving them a massage, manicure or pedicure.
To summarize, pamper gifts are a great way to show your appreciation for people in your life that pampered you. It is also highly recommended to stick to the budget, as pampering someone with more expensive items might make them feel resentful later on down the line.
