Looking for the best DIY gift ideas can be overwhelming; however, when you tie in the theme of self-care and wellness, your gifts become much more than an item you are giving - it is a message saying, "I appreciate you and I want you to take time to take care of yourself." Here are a few ideas that will take your best DIY gifts to the next level - with minimal prep time.


DIY Gifts For The Fitness Buff

Select a stylish new gym bag for the friend, partner, or family member who enjoys their workouts and fill the bag with new items to freshen up their selection. Inside, place a few key items they will need before, during, and after their workouts. This can include a new set of gym towels, a new workout outfit, and some items for a post-workout pick-me-up. The best part? Gift wrapping is optional.

What You Will Need:

• Stylish gym bag
• Microfiber or cotton gym towels
• New workout outfit
• ELEMIS Instant Refreshing Gel
ELEMIS Cool-Down Body Wash
• Hypersphere Mini



DIY Gifts For New Mothers

Mothers give so much love and attention to their newborns. Why not create a gift for them that helps them take care of themselves. Create a Mommy Me-Time gift basket or gift box filled with spa at home items. This can include a luxurious face mask, a replenishing body oil, and scented hair oil. Pair these items with a plush robe and comfortable slippers. It’s time for her.

What You Will Need:

• Gift box, basket, or bath caddy
• Plush robe
• Comfortable slippers
• ELEMIS Peptide⁴ Thousand Flower Mask
ELEMIS Frangipani Monoi Body Oil
• KÉRASTASE Elixir Ultime Huile Rose



DIY Gifts For Travelers

For that jetsetter that is close to your heart, try creating a gift they can take with them during each one of their adventures. The best gifts for jetsetters are more about functionality than quantity. If you’d like, opt to skip the wrapping, and give them their gift in an item they will use such as a stylish hanging toiletry bag or mini vanity case. Stock it for them with their skin, hair, and body essentials – and products that have multiple uses such as the Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm which is a cleanser and a hydrating mask, or the Skin Nourishing Milk Bath which is a makeup remover, body moisturizer, and bath milk. For an extra boost, the Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules work as a hydrating serum and as a skin detox regimen.

What You Will Need:

• Stylish hanging toiletry bag or miniature vanity case
• ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm - Travel
ELEMIS Skin Nourishing Milk Bath - Travel
• ELEMIS Cellular Recovery Skin Bliss Capsules – Travel
• ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks


DIY Gifts For Your In-Laws

When in doubt, a gift that fits everyone is gifts of self-care. When it comes to your in-laws, show them your love with a DIY gift they both will enjoy. Think of helping them create priceless moments such as a relaxing evening. An ideal DIY present is a gift basket filled with personalized items. Opt for items they can both use such as his and her matching robes, a bottle of wine, body oil, and a replenishing face mask. It’s a spa day at home that you helped create with love. This is also a great DIY gift for any couple.

What You Will Need:

• Gift box or basket
• Monogrammed his and her robes
• Bottle of preferred wine
• ELEMIS De-Stress Massage Oil
Hypersphere Mini



DIY Gifts For Your Co-Workers

When it comes to your co-workers, you may spend more time with them than you do at home or with friends. So, why not show your appreciation with a small gift that packs a powerful message of “I appreciate you.” Think simple yet powerful. You can do varying combinations of a nice, scented candle paired with a travel-size face mask or a luxurious hand or body cream. To keep the wrapping as simple as possible – place the items in a reusable gift pouch.

What You Will Need:

• Reusable gift pouch
• Travel-size face mask
• ELEMIS Skin Nourishing Body Cream


Best DIY Gift For The Person Who Has Everything

For the person who has everything, why not let them choose what they want with an e-GIFT Card – sent to their e-mail address. It is a great last-minute gift, and you will save time by skipping the gift-wrapping portion!

What You Will Need:
• Five minutes to input your Recipients e-mail and select the amount of gift card

While we may become caught up in the holiday rush, remember, it is the message behind the gift that matters. It is a symbol of the love, respect, and appreciation you have for the recipients.
