There are natural and low-waste alternatives that don’t have to break the budget. And these gifts might just surprise someone who isn’t convinced natural products are any good!

From homemade bath salts to organic personal care items, there’s something here for all bath lovers and all budget.

Spa Experiences

When it comes to spa experiences, you can save money by giving a DIY experience. Make your own coupon to give to your recipient and then they can plan a day to enjoy the spa treatment.

If you would prefer to buy an experience, consider supporting a local home-based business. Even better if you can find a person uses natural and low-waste products in their service.

Spa experiences include:

  • facial
  • massage
  • manicure
  • pedicure
  • foot cleanse and massage
  • combination of above

Handmade Bath and Beauty Products

DIY natural bath products not only save you money, but they also minimise waste and toxins going into our waterways.

One of the simplest and least expensive gifts is to buy some Epsom salts from the bulk store, package them in a recycled glass jar and attach a label explaining how to use them and where to refill the jar.

Or you can fancy the salts with essential oils for a delicious smelling bath. Check out this DIY bath salt recipe for how to create your own fancy bath salts for a fraction of the cost of storebought.

Another idea is to make a few natural products with the same smell, package them in recycled jars and combine them in a pamper hamper, maybe with a face washer or natural body brush.

Do you know someone who likes making their own personal care products? They may like a recipe book or their own DIY mineral make up kit.
