The holidays are rapidly approaching and that means it’s time to start making lists of who you will be giving gifts to. I find that starting early with my holiday shopping means less stress as they approach. I am always looking for ways to plan and eliminate stressful events that usually occur from waiting to the last minute.
As I get older, planning has kind of become an obsession of mine. My boyfriend and I actually joke about it a lot because he does the same thing. I love making lists and checking off things that I accomplish on that list. So satisfying.
I love gift baskets! Especially if you are scattered on what to get someone. I am a Libra and by nature, I have difficulty making decisions. A gift basket has a little bit of everything. It’s kind of the perfect gift for any occasion. You can also create fun themes for gift baskets. Today, I thought it would be fun to create a gift basket concept for a bohemian beauty lover!
Here are 5 tips to putting together the perfect holiday gift basket for a bohemian beauty.
1. PLAN AHEAD (If you can)
Eliminate the stress of rushing to put something together. We all know that it’s easy to tell when you gift a last minute gift. There is less thought put into it. Really spend time thinking and planning what you want to give each person on your list.
You may need to do online shopping and go to a few stores to find a variety of items. Give yourself enough time for items to be shipped. Another tip would be to try shopping when you are out doing other errands around town.
2. THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX
Think of a variety of items you could put in this gift basket. Not just in terms of gifts ideas but think of containers that can hold other items to display them. You will most likely be finding items that are large and small. How will you display them when you put it all together in a gift basket?
Make your design interesting by displaying smaller items in clear containers that go along with the theme of whatever gift basket you are making.
3. SELECT A VARIETY OF ITEMS IN SIZE AND TEXTURE TO ADD
When I think Bohemian beauty here are some ideas that would work well in a gift basket with this theme.
Crystals – Not only are these great for mediation but they also make beautiful decor around your home. Some bohemian’s believe in charging crystals and giving them a purpose inside and outside of the home.
Sage – This is great for burning and cleansing energy in a home. It is also used to cleanse and charge the energy of crystals. Any bohemian lover would be totally into using sage regularly.
Dreamcatcher – Good dreams are sure to come along if you hang a dream catcher above your bed. Dreamcatchers make beautiful home decor around the house. They can be very creatively made but can also be purchased at mainstream stores. They are very popular items.
Jewelry – This could be crystal jewelry or handmade with leather, turquoise, or pendants for aromatherapy.
Essential Oils – Aromatherapy is used with your sense of smell to reduce anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, speed up the healing process, eliminate headaches, boost cognitive performance, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, reduce pain, improve digestion and increase circulation.
Hemp beauty products – Hemp is one of the most versatile plants in nature and hemp oil is a powerful natural moisturizer for your skin. A daily skin care regimen is super important. Preventative skin care is a great place to start so we can age gracefully. But, it is never too late to start taking better care of your skin. These products are made specifically with hemp oil and are full of vitamins to keep skin feeling and looking younger. It’s all natural and not made with any harmful preservatives or chemicals.

4. CREATE A SOLID BASE
You may need some items to even out the base of the gift basket. Items look best when elevated as opposed to sitting low in the basket. There are a few ways to accomplish this.
If your container/basket is shallow you can use:
- Bubble wrap
- Tissue paper
- Crumbled newspaper
- Basket Filler
5. KEEP ITEMS SECURED
The last thing you want to do is put the whole gift basket together and have it begin to come apart when you travel. Make sure you think ways to secure all the items in the basket so it looks perfect when you hand it over to the recipient. The presentation is everything.
Some supplies that can assist you with this are:
- Glue Dots
- Straws (can help you keep flimsy items in their place)
