Spa Day Ideas, but make it your own:

  • Bath bomb

  • Hair ties or accessories

TIP: We recommend bringing your jar with you to the store when shopping to make sure everything you want can fit inside, or measure and do the math!

Step 1: Fill jar with spa items - we recommend placing larger items on the bottom like bath bombs or nail polishes and adding in smaller items on top. You can fill with confetti on the bottom for some added color or fluff! 

Step 2: Tie a ribbon around the neck of the jar and attach a decorative tag that reads “Spa Day in a Jar!” or add a special message to your friend who needs some pampering in their life!

Step 4: Finish off the gift by topping the lid with a loofah to look like a bow. You can simply tape it to the top of the jar for easy removal! 

Step 5: Don’t forget to make an extra one for yourself!
