RELAX gift idea with printable tags

Sometimes you just want to give someone a gift to help them recuperate after a huge event, major stress or just plain hard work.  That was exactly my desire when I put together this gift basket.  I wanted this to be bright and cheerful even though when you think "relax" you think calming, subdued spa-like colors.  To me part of relaxing is being happy so here it is.
I bought the cute tub in the dollar section at target.  I put some shredded paper in the bottom and then put some little gifts in.  Each gift corresponds with one of the tags that spell out the word RELAX.  

You can print the tags HERE
Here are ideas for items that can go with the tags:
Read- Book, reading glasses ,book light, gift card to a favorite bookstore.
Enjoy-chocolate, favorite candy bar, CD, DVD, I did Cutler's cookies (if you live in Davis County, you know why).
Lunch-gift card to a favorite sandwich shop, Lunchable, coupon for a lunch date on you.
Alleviate-lotion, fuzzy socks, sleep mask, pedicure gift card.
Exfoliate-Loofa, foot scrub, pummis stone or file.

I also made a smaller gift, a bag of a few pampering tools placed in a Cellophane bag.  I just attached a RELAX tag to the bag.

I think this would make a great teacher gift or birthday gift.  I also think it's a great gift for a pregnant friend or a brand new mother or even for Mother's Day!

Thanks for stopping by,

Come back soon,
