What Do You Put in a Gift Basket For a Pedicure?
So what exactly do you put into a pedicure gift basket? Well, the answer is it will depend on your budget and how many gifts you want to give someone.
A relatively simple gift basket doesn’t have to cost the earth if you keep it simple and stick to just some simple fun basics such as foot lotion and nail polish. A more extravagant pedicure gift basket would involve more expensive items such as electrical foot exfoliators or a foot spa or designer nail polish.
Our gift basket ideas encompass a list of products that would be great to give as presents but you obviously don’t need to include every item we suggest. It is ok to just pick and choose just a few items if you have a tighter budget.
Remember places like Dollar Tree can sell brilliant versions or high-end products that could work just as well if you are looking for cheaper pedicure gifts.
Creating the Perfect Pedicure Basket
Before you actually start putting items into your pedicure gift basket you need to think about the actual basket itself. Remember you don’t need to use a basket if you don’t want to. You could use a beautiful gift box or alternatively a cheap foot spa basin to place the products in.
Remember that when you place tissue paper, colored shredded paper and ribbons or bows on whatever you use as your gift basket it can elevate the ordinary into something beautiful to look at. Also, don’t forget to buy or make a beautiful gift tag to let the person know it is for them.
Wicker or seagrass gift baskets especially if they are lined make a great box to place your presents in.
If you are creating a more expensive foot spa gift basket then you could use an actual electric foot spa to place the gifts in. This elevates your DIY spa gift basket to another level.
Pedicure Gifts for a Special Occasion
A pedicure gift basket is great for a Christmas gift or holiday season present but it can also be central to a birthday surprise for a best friend or family member if you think a little bit out of the box.
Who is to say that you and your friends couldn’t club together to buy products to place in the basket and gift to a friend to create a spa evening for you all? You could also add a couple of edible goodies for you and your friends to eat whilst getting a pedicure.
Think about adding some wine, chocolate, cheese and crackers, and some napkins and you have the makings of a really great evening for you all.
A cheaper pedicure gift basket would also be great to create to use whilst having a movie night with your mom, besties or other people in your life. Remember the gift box doesn’t just have to be for holidays like Christmas but can be a great way of celebrating life throughout the year.
Making a Foot Spa Basket
These are some of the best products that you can order or buy in the beauty aisle to put in your gift basket to make someone smile. We have put in a list of some of our favorite things for pedicures and we’ve included options at all price points. Take your time to create something that suits your occasion and budget and you can’t go far wrong.
Let’s start with something small and talk about a pedicure essential that is perfect for a pedicure basket that doesn’t cost the earth. Cotton balls are great to bulk out a gift basket as they are super easy to find and are used for everything from removing nail polish to separating toes in a pedicure. They are also brilliant products to use around the house.
If you want to help separate the toes when you are having a pedicure then it makes sense to use something that’s super easy and gets the job done. Toe separators are another product that is brilliant for your gift basket they cost very little but make a great pedicure gift.
When you are looking for pedicure basket ideas think about popping a nail brush into your present. These are great cheap and handy tools that can help to create the perfect gift. We love this natural bristle brush with a pumice stone.
Nail Polish Remover
You can’t have a pedicure without nail polish remover either. Sally Hansen’s nail polish remover with chamomile and vitamin E is great for removing old polish but doesn’t damage your nails.
If you are thinking about a pedicure gift basket don’t forget to include some simple equipment in your choices as well. Nail clippers for example don’t cost a lot of money but they are incredibly useful for trimming toenails.
This Firiker nail clipper set is ideal as it comes with two different sizes of clippers making it a perfect pedicure gift.
If you want to give a great pedicure gift basket then don’t forget to include a nail file that can be used for shaping the nails. This set of diamond nail files has 3 pieces that are perfect for the job.
Cuticle Pusher and Cutter
Another thoughtful gift to add to any pedicure gift sets is a cuticle pushed and cutter. Cuticle pushers and cutters help to elevate an average pedicure to a more professional standard. They don’t cost much and they are really simple to use.
If you are going to have a typical pedicure then you need to have a foot soak that can help to relax the feet. There are some amazing foot soaks on the market to help with everything from foot health to moisturizing.
If you are looking for something a little different as a foot soak gift you could even purchase a Jelly Pedi kit which is so much fun and a little different from the norm. You can find out more about Jelly Pedicures on our blog on the topic. Obviously, pick a product that is most likely to suit the person you are buying for.
Another great pedicure gift basket idea is a foot mask. Exfoliating foot masks are amazing products that help to shed dead skin from your feet.
These masks aren’t used at the same time as a pedicure but usually a week or so before. They are a great item for a gift basket because of their price and also because if your recipient hasn’t used them before they are going to be in for a shock.
Electric Pedicure Device
The next item on our list is a little more expensive. It isn’t a necessity for a gift basket but it is a great device to add if you are working on a bigger budget.
The Amope Dry Foot File is an electronic miracle worker that can help to remove hard callused skin with ease. It still isn’t a super expensive item but obviously, costs add up when you are creating a pedicure gift basket containing multiple products.
If you are thinking about a few items to place in your gift baskets for the end of a pedicure then don’t forget cuticle oil. Cuticle oil is great to moisturize and strengthen nails and is simple to buy in most chemist shops.
Foot Moisturizing Cream
Another gift basket idea that is perfect for pedicure gift baskets is a moisturizing cream for the feet. The Body Shop peppermint foot lotion is hugely popular and looks slightly less clinical than some creams on the market. Remember you want your present to look like a gift and not medical supplies!
Creating a Nail Polish Gift Basket
Finally the last of our pedicure gift basket ideas is of course nail polish.
Even though we have talked about lots of different pedicure supplies there is no reason why you couldn’t create a nail polish gift basket instead of including lots of different products. Nail polish comes in a huge array of colors and types so presenting this as a present could work really well.
Alternatively, if you just want to put one or two nail polishes into the DIY spa basket then get creative and pick some colors to suit your friends or family member.
There are so many amazing nail polish colors that you can choose from. Chanel nail polish is a great premium product that you could place in your gift basket. This classic red is a pedicure staple.
For a high street brand, you could use Revlon nail varnish but you can of course choose any brand from the high end to the high street to finish off your gift.
