1. Get the beauty products ready

It’s best to gather the spa products together before putting them in the jar. Look at the size of the jar and determine what will fit. Little samples of products work well.

You could prepare a facial spa jar with serums, face sheet masks, moisturizers, eye creams, and facial cleansers.

You might want to make a hair care jar with dry shampoo, hair mask, and hair oil with a disposable shower cap.

You can make a body product jar with a razor, body butter, and scrubbers.

You could even create an entirely homemade spa in a jar with your own homemade body scrub or beauty products!

You can mix and match products to make a completely individualized jar depending on who you’re giving it to.

3. Put the spa in the jar

Lay your chosen spa products out. Open the jar and work out how to fit all the chosen products inside it. You may need to fold those products that come in pouches or envelopes in order to make them fit properly.

You want the spa-like feeling to start from the moment you present the jar as a gift.

Presentation is important so make sure the products are not squished or look like they’re about to burst. Place them in the jar so they are visible and attractive looking.

4. Wrap it up

Use ribbons and stickers to beautify the jar. An easy way to beautify the jar is to wrap the ribbon around the jar. Cut off any excess. Place a sticker on the ribbon to secure the ribbon in place.

    I would give a gift to pamper hands after all the hand washing with anti-bacterial soaps we use: healing hand balm, cotton gloves, cuticle cream, nail clippers and file, polish remover and lotion.
