Everyone has somebody on their holiday gift list that could use some pampering. I know I would love something to help me relax during the upcoming holiday season. This year I have decided to put together an at home spa gift basket for a few of my friends that contains some of my favorite things.

For years I would complain about how the skin on my feet would be rough and hard and also how I could never keep my nails in good shape. My nails would be dull and rough around the edges. After years of complaining my mom must have been tired of listening to me because last year she gave me one of my favorite gifts ever, the Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electric Foot & Nail File.

I use both the Amope Pedi Perfect™ Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File and Amope Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Nail File at least twice a week. Even my husband loves them. They really help my feet stay soft and smooth and my nails shiny. The best part is my mom doesn’t have to hear me complain.

For the gift baskets I included Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electric Foot & Nail File as the centerpiece. I know my friends will love them as much as I do. I also put in nail polish, soft fuzzy socks, peppermint candy and some soothing peppermint sugar scrub and peppermint body butter, perfect for an at home spa day.

Making your own spa products is very simple and fun. For the fall I made this pumpkin spice latte sugar scrub and I thought peppermint would be perfect for these holiday baskets. Not to mention peppermint is very soothing for tired feet and the smell is amazing.

Peppermint Sugar Scrub

Things you need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil

  • 1 drop vanilla extract
  • 2 drops red food coloring (optional)

Making this peppermint sugar scrub couldn’t be easier. Simply mix the sugar and coconut oil together in a bowl. Mix in peppermint essential oil, vanilla and a few drops of red food coloring if you want color.

Peppermint Body Butter

Things you need:

  • 1/2 cup Shea butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 4-5 drops peppermint essential oil (or peppermint extract)
  • Peppermint Body Butter Labels

To make the body butter, melt Shea butter and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat until melted. Pour the mixture into a bowl and let sit until slightly hardened. The mixture should be soft to the touch. (If you want to speed up this process, put bowl in refrigerator or freezer.) Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the Shea butter mixture until creamy. Mix in peppermint essential oil and place in jar.
