The Pamper Hamper!

Pamper Hamper!

Okay so the names kinda cheesey! But to be fair i think this would be the perfect gift for any sister,mum,grandma or anybody who you think deserves a good pampering to be honest! 

Down the left hand side are some different ways in which you can package you items, just because its called a hamper doesn't mean you have to stick to the idea of a wicker basket does it? Maybe a hat box would be more suitable or a cute wash bath like the Cath Kidson one? It all just depends on what you think the recipient would prefer.

I think the most important part of any hamper isn't the content but how much thought has gone into putting it together, for example lining the bottom with coloured tissue paper or a nice fabric will both cushion the hamper (great if you have more delicate content such as perfume or powder products) whilst looking pretty. Adding petals or spritzing some perfume into the basket would also be nice!

Now for the interesting part... choosing the content. Again this will depend on people's personal preference but here's just some ideas.... 
  •  A DVD.. maybe a box set of there favourite show or a nice christmas movie?
  • Face mask, the one featured in the picture above is the REN detox mask (highly recommended for anybody with acne prone/ oily skin) Lush do some really nice ones to!
  • Hair or body oil, Ojon rare blend oil is a favourite of mine although it can be pricey.
  • Slippers who doesn't love a pair of comfy slippers?.
  •  Sleep mask or maybe even eye cream.
  • Bath Bombs, again LUSH do a wide range at affordable prices. The ones featured are Sex Bomb and Candy Cane Bubble bar.
  • Lip Scrub/Balm great for applying before bed!
  •  Bubble Bath, i love a good old bubble bath before bed and this smells amazing from Philosophy.
  • Magazine Subscription? if your on a budget how about just simply adding the latest issue of their favourite magazine to the hamper if they haven't already read it! 
  • A candle, perfect to go with the bubble bath, Neom do a great range but Yankee candles are also really nice.
  • Nail Polish, think festive colours such as reds/golds and deep purples.  
Hope this is helpful and thanks for reading!
