I'm wanting to put togeather circus themed hand care baskets for Christmas this year for my two friends that I do aerial silks and aerial hoop with.
I'm thinking most things will me home made, but "m willing to buy thigns to add as well here's the few things I have thought of so far.
-Really thick heavy hand cream.
-Body power made out of arrow root and zic oxide with lavender Essential Oil
Now the question is what else would be good to put in? What you lovely ladies like to find in gift basket of this sort? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Great idea! My friend Alicia gave another friend and myself an "aerial survival kit" last year for Christmas and it is fantastic! There were several items, including a travel set of nail clippers and file (so you don't snag the silks), hand cream and Epsom salts for the bath.
I would also add Arnica gel for the inevitable bruises, especially from lyra; Badger Sore Muscle Rub balm -- http://www.badgerbalm.com/p-480-sore-muscle-rub-original.aspx and there are other rubs, oils and balms on their website; and sticky gauze wrap to protect the hands when spending long hours on lyra.
And maybe some legwarmers ;-)
If I got this gift basket, I'd be pumped. My suggestions would be Cramer's and maybe arnica gel. I know you can make an arnica salve homemade- I tried once but it didn't turn out that great. Not sure about everyone else, but I have a real bad time with bruising on the lyra. You're adorable for coming up with this idea!
**Whoops, didn't see Kinetic Kristens suggestion for arnica until just now. Oh well :)
Thanks for great idea's, I really like the Arnica gel suggestion it's not something that we have used before so in the basket it will go :)
