DIY Summer gift bag!

In Spa day by Allie Aronstam

This weekend I will be going out of town with some girlfriends for a spa day retreat! I thought it would only be appropriate that I make some sort of gift to just say “Thanks for being a good friend!” So I decided to do a little bit of shopping and some bargain hunting and make some cute gift bags for under $15 bucks! I went to my go to spots for deals and found some cute things to go alongside some awesome artisan soap! Topped it off with a 1/2 oz. bottle of our organic and pure jojoba oil and I was in business. I am sure that my friends, and whoever you are making yours for, will appreciate it! You can play around with the items you pick, but let this be a guide for you to make a simple gift!


Price Breakdown for all the goodies:

Coconut Lime Candle: $0.99

Noho Coconut Lime Verbena Artisan Soap: $6.99

Clarifying Cucumbr Peel-off Face Mask: $1.99

Organic Jojoba Oil: $4.99

Grand Total: $14.96. I’m sorry, but FOUR lovely spa treats for under $15 bucks is a win in my book!


I found this lovely face mask while purusing the aisles in target. They had a bunch of other masks for sale like a dead sea mud mask, a self-heating clay mask, and a chocolate face mask! Yum


Noho Soap Company is a company based out of Northern Hollywood in Southern California. The owner, Kat, handmakes these artisan soaps, with only the highest quality natural and clean ingredients! This coconut lime verbena soap smells like heaven!


Now, I found this bad boy for the whopping price of 99 cents! Where might you ask did I find such a deal? Well the 99 cent store of course! By adding small and cheaper items along with the high end soap and body oil, your gift receiver will think you spent piles of moolah on them, when really it was just some clever shopping 😉 Always, always, always check out the 99 cent store for fun goodies in gift bags like this!


Of course no spa gift bag is complete without some of our organic jojoba oil! Add it to your daily beauty regimen and your skin will be thanking you, and so will your friends! If they are so lucky to receive one 😉

Hope this has inspired you to get in the spirit of giving! Happy thrifting and gifting!
