Adding candles to the basket in a fragrance and color that matches the bath products will not only add to the visual appeal of it but will also enhance the overall effect of relaxation for the recipient when all the items are used in combination. Other products that could be included are body lotions, drawer liners, potpourri, a bath pillow, a bottle of wine, a wine glass filled with chocolates, specialty facial masks, slippers and other such items that can aid relaxation and rejuvenate the recipient.

That’s right. We will match every donation you make via our shopping cart.
