Give the gift of relaxation, even if the spas are closed. If you have a a person in your life that needs to relax (or you want to spoil yourself!) check out these gift guide ideas for a home spa day.
I know when I do a home spa day, I go all out in making it full spa experience. It’s nice to really imitate that luxurious, indulgent, relaxing, pampering atmosphere. I love taking baths, dimming the lights, burning a candle or turning on some twinkle lights. Cue the calm music, lather up in masks, lotions/oils, and of course pour a generous glass of wine! I tried to include items that are good for showers or baths in case you don’t have a bathtub in your home. The prices for these items range from super affordable to a bit more pricey. Feel free to mix and match to put together a spa gift basket!

Gift Guide: 25 Home Spa Day Ideas
Spa Headband – These cute, fluffy headbands allow you to keep your hair off of your face while you do a face mask and/or hair mask, without giving you a headache!
Redken Hair Mask. Redken is a brand I trust and love to give my hair strength, moisture, and a great smell. Wet your hair, apply the mask and let it soak in anywhere from 5 min to overnight. After you rinse it out you will feel a noticeable difference in the softness and smoothness of your hair.
Foot Spa – If you’ve been on your feet all day, or don’t have a tub in your home, this nifty little foot spa will allow your tired toes the soak they deserve. It even offers massage features, a pumice stone, and acupressure to help release tension.
Foot Warmer/Massager – along the same lines, this foot warmer and massager helps ease the foot pain from high heels, concrete floors, or standing for long periods of time. Plus you can remove the foot cover and use it as a back massager too!
Shower Steamers – These are great for people that don’t have a bath tub, but still want a luxurious, steamy, scented shower experience. As they melt in the water, they release aromatherapy scents to relax or energize depending on the one you choose.
Bath Salts . The benefits of an Epsom salt bath soak have been proven to help relax muscles and draw out toxins. Plus you can choose from a range of great scents. I usually prefer Eucalyptus for a very spa like scent, or Lavender before bed.
Bath Bombs – Trendy and fun, you can get bath bombs in so many scents and varieties these days from all sorts of places. I prefer ones that aren’t sparkly or too strongly coloured (because the last thing you want to do after a relaxing bath is clean your bath tub!)
Facial Steamer – Gently open your pores to allow face masks and serums to really penetrate deep into your skin. Plus it’s great if you have a stuffy congested nose especially when combined with menthol or eucalyptus scents
Jade Roller – I am not sure how much I believe in the actual properties of the stone having benefits to your skin. But the gentle motion as it rolls across your face can definitely help with lymphatic drainage and help get your blood circulating. Especially if you put it in the fridge before you use it and use a hydrating face serum at the same time.
Facial Cleansing Brush – Ditch the makeup wipes and use this brush to clean your face to get a deeper clean with less damage to your skin. Just make sure to use very gentle pressure and not over scrub
Neck Bath Pillow or Full Body Bath Pillow – Make your bathtub extra comfortable, allowing you to soak for even longer
Wine Holder – This one is great for the shower or the tub as you can suction it pretty much anywhere. Just make sure you’re using a stem wine glass holder and preferably one that’s not glass in case it does slip
Bath Tray – This one has a slot for your stemmed wine glass! As well as a back stop for your book, ipad, or laptop. And yes, I do take my laptop in the bathtub despite my Mom’s worry I have never dropped it or gotten water damage on it. Although I do have Geek Squad protection just in case – and yes I asked it does cover if I drop it in the water.
Stemmed Wine Glass – These ones are great because they are not glass! They are insulated so your white wine won’t warm despite the steam from a bath shower. They have a lid so if you’re in the shower water won’t splash in, and they come with a straw!
Body Brush – Dry brushing has amazing benefits for exfoliating and stimulating blood circulation. Some claim it helps with cellulite, but I don’t know if that’s true. I do know it feels really good to slough off all the dry skin in harsh winters
Exfoliating Gloves– These gloves are great for in the shower to exfoliate and scrub your body. I like to use them before I shave to get a closer, smoother shave. I really do notice a difference after using them! Just make sure to switch them out regularly so they don’t harbor germs/bacteria especially since manual exfoliation and shaving results in microtears of your skin that you don’t want bacteria to enter. Also make sure you moisturize really well or your skin will feel dryer.
Sheet Masks, Clay Masks, & Under Eye Masks. Sheet masks are usually just hydrating serums that feel nice as they give your face extra boosts of moisture. Clay masks draw out impurities and help detox your skin (but can feel drying). Under eye masks are usually hydrating serums, but occasionally with caffeine or another stimulant to help reduce the bags under your eyes by plumping the delicate skin. Choose your mask based on what you want for your skin
Heated Massage Pad & Electric Blanket– After a long relaxing soak or shower, continue the muscle relaxation with heat and massage. Perfect for when the weather outside is freezing cold.
Aromatherapy Diffuser & Essential Oils. Not just for the bathroom! Use these as you fall asleep at night, to help you wake up in the morning, or as you do a yoga session.
Candles– There is nothing more soothing or cozy than the soft light and gorgeous smell of a candle. Plus the Woodwicks candles have (you guessed it) wooden wicks that crackle as they burn.
Body Oil– Grapefruit is my favourite scent! After a bath or shower (especially if I shaved) I love spraying body oil, massaging it in, and letting it soak into my skin. Start with your skin still slightly damp for best results. If I’m really dry, I’ll start with body lotion and then spray this oil on top. I also love spraying a few squirts directly into the bath water! The oil will float on top of the water meaning that every time I enter or exit the water, my skin gets a light coating. Just be careful as it can make the tub extra slippery.
Facial Mister– Good anytime you’re getting a little too warm- in the bath, during a workout, in the car. Provides a nice light mist to help cool you down and hydrate your skin.
Gel Polish & UV Curing Light – Gel polish is way less likely to chip and lasts 2-3 weeks! While nail salons are closed, these can help make you look like you got a professional mani pedi.
Plush Bath Robe – Basically like wearing a cozy blanket. Thin bath robes or silk bathrobes are nice in the summer. Terrycloth bathrobes help absorb the water right out of the shower. A cozy plush bathrobe is usually my go to in the winter
Fuzzy Slippers– Cute & Cozy, these will keep your feet warm, without ruining your new pedicure.
So there you have it! 25 different Spa Day gift ideas. I didn’t include perishables like wine, tea, or chocolate. However, I if I am pampering my body I usually like to indulge my taste buds a little as well. Another great thing to include would be magazines or a great book! Help entertain you while you soak in the tub or wait for your nails to dry.
