We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.
I picked up a few of the items from The Bathery® line at Target so I could put together a fun beauty gift basket for one of my friends. I love that The Bathery® carries many items that make your favorite beauty brands work harder like scrub brushes, poufs, loofahs, pumice and more. I also love the fact that the products come in either bright fun or natural colors so you will find a color that suits everyone. With gifts from The Bathery®, you can encourage everyone on your list to Live Laugh Lather® this holiday season.

I wanted to make some homemade bath products to gift with the Bath Body Sponge, 4-in-1 Foot Wand and the Exfoliating Gentle Bath Cloth I picked up. I started with a Lemon Sugar Bath Scrub. I thought the bright yellow would compliment the bright fun colors of The Bathery products.
Here is the recipe of the Lemon Sugar Body Scrub, it’s super easy to make and only takes 3 ingredients!
- 1/2 cup Sugar
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
- 1 Lemon
Pour sugar into a bowl and squeeze in the juice from the lemon. Mix in the coconut oil and that is all there is to do. I told you is was super easy! Add to a jar and attach a label.
To make the basket have more of a Christmas theme to it I decided to Make Peppermint Bath Salt and add them to plastic ornaments that I picked up at the craft store. The ornaments I used were flat on one side (for a photo), but you could use the ornaments that are round all the way around too.
I separated the bath salt into equal amounts and used some food coloring to make 1/2 of it pink. When I added the bath salt to the ornament I used a funnel and layered white and then pink.
Making the Peppermint Bath Salt is easy too, here is the recipe:
- 1 cup Epsom Salt
- 1/2 cup Coarse Sea Salt
- 1/4 cup Baking Soda
- 4 drops Peppermint Essential Oil
- Red food coloring
Mix the Epsom Salt, Sea Salt and Baking Soda in a bowl. Add 4 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil and mix well. If you want to color the mix, add red food coloring to either all or 1/2 of the mix. I chose to add it to 1/2 and then layered the colors in the containers.
Besides the homemade products I also picked up some of my favorite brands like Dead Sea Essentials and Bodycology which can also be found at Target. Here is what I added to the basket:
- The Bathery® Body Sponge (Pouf)
- The Bathery® 4-in-1 Foot Wand
- The Bathery® Exfoliating Gentle Bath Cloth
- Homemade Lemon Sugar Body Scrub
- Homemade Peppermint Bath Salt (in ornaments)
- Dead Sea Essentials Bubble Bath
- Bodycology Body Lotion
- Homemade Ornament
I took a look around Target in different departments to come up with an idea for gift basket. The basket I used was actually found in the kids storage department. I also found several other options in the regular storage section and I even found some cool jars in the kitchen department.
I finished off the gift with a printable gift tag from The Bathery®. You can print The Bathery® gift tags for FREE to attach to your gift baskets too.
Here’s another idea if you are looking for a smaller gift, you can attach one of the homemade Peppermint Bath Salt ornaments to The Bathery® Exfoliating Bath Cloth. This would be something simple you could gift to neighbors, coworkers or friends. My teenage daughter wants to give them out to her friends too.
