Spa Gifts - Free Pattern
If you're looking for a quick last minute gift, try beautiful washcloths and artisan soaps. Two handmade cloths wrapping some fine handmilled soaps and tied with a ribbon would make a lovely gift for anyone on your list. (Modern men are into skin care, too.) Add a candle or two, and it's a spa experience you can even tuck into a stocking!
Use some organic cotton or bamboo fibers, and these cloths will gently exfoliate skin. Choose a boutique artisan soap that fits your friend's personality: chocolate, olive oil, lavender, and oatmeal are all popular handmilled soap types. (If you're in the Buffalo NY area, stop in to Village Artisans on Main Street in Williamsville for a lovely selection of soaps and candles.) Or coordinate soap and candle colors to the yarn colors used for a pretty visual. Need something more substantial? Add a pedicure brush or a facial brush, bubble bath, and a natural moisturizer. Enjoy!
