Things You'll Need
- Tissue paper
- Wrapping paper
- Fake Flowers
Decide on a budget. Be sure to account for all materials that will be needed. This includes; the container you will use to place the gifts in, cost you plan to spend on the cosmetics themselves, as well as the wrapping you will use.
Choose a theme. A gift set usually includes things that work well together. Some good additions would include; bath sprays, soaps, shower gel and a poof or loofah. Makeup sets should include, lip gloss, a pocket mirror, application brushes, eye shadows, mascara and makeup remover.
Pick a suitable container. It should be large enough to hold the items, and be to your liking. Containers can be a simple gift bag, box or basket. In using something like a basket, it gives the gift an additional purpose.
Assemble your gift set. If using a gift bag as your container, place some tissue paper inside the bag. If you chose a box, wrap the gift and add a decorative bow. For a basket, purchase some clear wrap -- gather it at the top -- and tie it with ribbon.
Save time and go online. There are several online resources that will help you assemble a gift basket. You can achieve a professional look, while choosing specific products to be included in your gift set.
