Petite Bedside Boutique


Treat yourself by curating a collection of pint size pampering products for a personal  bedside boutique.

Search for an assortment of mini and travel sized beauty goods as if you were stocking a specialty shop with exclusive baubles.

It's the hunt that makes this project interesting, as you're searching with the eye of a buyer and not just a consumer. You'll want items that will make "shopping" at your bedside boutique a valuable and convenient experience. Look for products you'll actually use with modern, unique, or reusable packaging that don't require you to leave the bedroom, or furthermore, the bed.

The other task is to find inexpensive gems as well. Create a per item budget and know where to shop for quirky and quality goods. Many discount stores carry popular brands that have great products and packaging for much less than their original prices. Don't  forget to check clearance aisles as well.

Some of my favorite items I found included: C.O. Bigelow's My Favorite Night Balm; Crabtree & Evelyin's Honey & Peach Blossom Multi Purpose Balm;  Neutrogena's Light Sesame Body Oil; Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream, and C.O. Bigelow's Rose Salve. I was drawn to products in metal tins and pots, as they can be reused and refilled. 

I used a ceramic tray to display my findings, but any type of holder that fits your decor or aesthetic would suffice.

  1. These items would make such a great kit! I would like to make something for myself that puts everything together. I saw a video once where this lady placed all her items like this in those fake books that are used for storage. She stacked them ever so neatly by her bed and it looked great!

    1. Hey Libby! I think these would make a great kit, and you could gift it too. Would love the link to the video. Using the fake books seems like a good idea if you wanted to keep the items hidden. I usually see those at Michaels, and with their coupons, you could probably get a good deal on them.
