Hi, lovelies! With Valentines Day around the corner, I wanted to bring you something a little different for this SELF CARE Tuesday post…How to make a Mini Care Kit. This little kit is the perfect thing to give to your friends on Valentines Day. Consider it a little “I’m here for you, go enjoy some me time” gift.
I think a really important part of self-care is to give your friends the time and space to practice self-care in their own way too. As an example, if a friend cancels plans with you because they feel they need to rest or take some “me time”, don’t give them a hard time about it, rather support them and see it as an opportunity to use the free time to practice some self-care yourself. So if you have a friend who needs a V Day treat, here’s how you can make this little kit…
What you’ll need:
- A super cute mug (remember #hygge)
- Tea Bags
- Face Mask
- Nail Polish
- Calming Essential Oil (I chose Lavender)
- Plain Gift Tag
- Small Glass Bottle
- Bakers Twine
- Mini Envelopes
- Washi Tape
- Strips of Paper
I made 3 little things to go with the store bought items in my kit…
1. Bottle of Kind Words
Using your paper strips, write a few kind notes to your friend. Notes to bring a smile to their face and remind them how special they are. Fold these up and put them inside the small glass bottle. Make a cute label for the outside with a strip of paper and some washi tape. I wrote, “You’re the Best” on mine.
2. Envelope of Yumminess
Again using your paper strips and washi tape, make a label to stick on your mini envelope to tell your bestie what’s inside. Now fill the envelope with as many tea bags as you like.
3. Love Note
Write a little love note on your tag and decorate with cute doodles.
Now fill your mug with all the goodies you’ve collected and attach the tag. Y
