How to Create a Fair Trade Bath Basket Gift

Here’s a unique gift idea for someone special: a beautiful basket filled with bath products – and bonus points for using fair trade items!

I don’t take a good, long soak in the tub nearly often enough. But when I do, I want it to feel really, really indulgent.

And when I give gifts to the special people in my life who are bath lovers, I want them to feel pampered, too.

That’s why I’ve collected the products below – because they are truly wonderful, pampering products that anyone would love to use for a spa experience at home.

BONUS: It just so happens that all of the products included are Fair Trade certified.

Why not treat yourself or someone you care about to a little (good for mankind) indulgence today?

Who Would Enjoy a Bath Basket Gift?

These luxurious – but reasonably priced – bath items are perfect gifts, for birthdays, holidays, Mother’s Day..anytime, really.

For you. Your mom. Your sister. Your BFF. Aunt, niece, neighbor, hair stylist…you get the idea. Heck, change out the robes for something a little more masculine, and a lot of men would enjoy this, too. Baths aren’t just for women!

I was actually thinking of my mother-in-law as I put this list together.

She’s getting older, and her baths are not just opportunities to get clean, they also help take away her everyday aches and pains. I thought, why not make her experience a little more relaxing and luxurious? She deserves to feel pampered!

In this guide, I’ve curated items for the bath that would be enjoyed by many.

Each item makes a great gift on its own, but when you combine a few of them together – perhaps in a beautiful gift basket – they become unforgettable.

What Should You Put in Your One-of-a-Kind Bath Gift Basket?

  • Start with a beautiful, fragrant bar of soap
  • Add a natural washcloth, pedicure item, and deeply relaxing lavender oil
  • After-bath comfort can be offered in the form of a fragrant sachet, moisturizing shea butter, and a soothing warm neck wrap
  • A soft, comfortable robe will finish off the complete gift basket

Where Can You Find the Best Fair Trade Bath Products to Fill Your Basket?

Here’s an easy answer: Ten Thousand Villages.

I gathered these items all from this one location, to make shopping and selection that much easier for you.

I chose to focus on the Ten Thousand Villages shop because they have high-quality products, prices are excellent, and they will even gift wrap and ship to your recipient directly if you wish.

But most importantly, Ten Thousand Villages is the largest 100% fair trade store in the U.S. How is this important? From the Ten Thousand Villages website, we get this clear explanation:

  1. God, I miss having a bath. In our temporary house, until our permanent house will be ready, we have none, and I can’t wait to buy bath bombs again:) In the meantime, the fair trade products you recommended look amazing. I can enjoy a good soap in the shower too. And yes, using fair trade products always feels better to me.

    1. Madi, I rarely take baths but I would certainly miss having a tub if I didn’t have one at all! Patience, my dear, is all I can recommend! I try to buy fair trade products whenever I can, and Ten Thousand Villages (where all of these are from) is a very responsible, ethical retailer.

    1. I think there has been a real shift recently, and people want to know more about how products were produced and who made them, rather than just going for the typical mass-production, and I’m really glad to see this change! Thanks for reading!
