It's been a while since I've done a Make-It Monday post, so what better time than the gift-giving season? This DIY beauty gift basket is simple to put together but has big personalized impact!
Over the years, my holiday gift picks have become much more functional - things each person needs and can truly use, rather than extravagant, silly, or novelty gifts that are enjoyed briefly before they sit on a shelf somewhere. But just because they're functional doesn't mean they are boring; beauty products are functional and luxurious, and I like to personalize each item with a little easy DIY that makes every gift even more special to give and to get.
DIY Beauty Gift Basket
I've stocked this gift basket with some of my favorite hair care products from Target. All four products are part of the Nexxus Caviar Complex hair care system meant to restore your hair's natural elasticity and health.
The Nexxus Therappe Shampoo and Nexxus Humectress Conditioner help replenish hair health, which is especially helpful during these cold, dry winter months.
The Caviar Complex Serum is an elegant conditioning oil that helps restore damaged hair to its pre-damaged state, making it super healthy, smooth, and soft.
The Nexxus Maximum Hold Finishing Mist truly holds shape without adding weight. It kept my holiday hairstyle for several hours without feeling heavy or matted down this past Saturday as Mr. Bliss and I went out for happy hour and then attended his company holiday party.
DIY personal touches
Washi tape is one of my favorite DIY tools in the whole world. I use it to enhance tablescapes, to personalize fun party decorations, and to create totally different looks with upcycled furniture. It's so easy to personalize functional gifts with washi tape!
For this gift basket, I chose solid gold and solid silver washi tape to compliment the gold and silver of the gift basket, then used white and gold gift filler and sparkly silver ribbon to add to the festive holiday feel.
To round out the DIY beauty gift basket, I included a soft, plush white towel, hair brush, mirror, and glass bottles filled with bobby pins and hair ties. I put everything into this modern, gorgeous gold & silver woven canvas basket that the gift recipient can re-use to hold handtowels in a guest bathroom, as an attractive mail holder, or to hold napkins at a buffet table. So many ways to re-use this beautiful basket!
Who says functional gifts have to be boring? This DIY beauty gift basket is full of luxurious everyday products that would help any friend or family member treat themselves to the gift of good hair health!
