Make several spa baskets for the girls on your Christmas list.You will need small baskets, how many will depend on how many you want to make.Also try to buy baskets second hand, and spray paint if needed.
You will need baggies for your homemade bath salts, recipe to follow.Epsom salts,a towel,and face cloth for each basket buy a whole set if your doing several baskets.Try to buy everything in bigger packs.A pack of candles,bars of soap you can buy at the dollar store a quarter each bar.A roll of ribbon ,and card stock.Loofah sponges usually come in three packs for a buck.Buy a big bottle of bubble bath and some travel size containers,or use some you already have to pour bubble bath into smaller bottles.Use some perfume you already have for your bath salts.
To make bath salts put epsom salts into seperate bowls with your desired amounts.You can do red and white for a candy cane look,or one orange,pink,blue,white,and green.Just add a couple of drops of food colouring to each bowl and mix well.Then add a few drops of perfume to each bowl and mix well.Spread the salts onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper and let dry a few hours.Then transfer into small baggies about half full,and tie with a ribbon.
Then put your baskets together add 5 little bags to each basket of bath salts,a candle,a rolled up towel,and cloth,a loofah sponge,bubble bath,and a bar of soap.Each basket will cost about five bucks.
