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.
