View Full Version : Christmas Theme Basket Idea-LHC Items

December 11th, 2008, 11:34 PM
I love to give theme baskets at Christmas. So I'm doing an “LHC Hair Care” basket for my dear friend who has gorgeous silver hair about shoulder length, not very thick. I want to share the tools and techniques I’ve learned at this great community.

So far my gift basket ideas are:

-Coconut oil
-Some shampoos and conditioners without sulfates and cones. Anything special for silver hair?
-SMT directions and ingredients.

Any other ideas for this gift basket?

Post Edit note: DragonLady...Thanks for the horn comb idea - I'll get one.

A horn comb. :)

I was just making my bed and another idea came... a satin pillowcase.

So I think just a few more items and it will be complete. Any other ideas?

Off to google "horn comb". Thanks DragonLady for that one. :)

a BBB or a nice wide tooth comb and some ouchless elastics

Maybe a nice microfiber hair towel for drying?

Is that length hair able to use sticks?

I could use sticks at shoulder length so it's possible she could use a simple pair of metal sticks which would also work for damp bunning.

other things I might include:
Aloe gel, a silk buff or scarf, snag free elastics, cassia (maybe - but it might leave her silver hair with a more golden tone)

ACV in a pretty jar with a scroll of detailed instructions.

...or SMT in a pretty jar!

Last Xmas I gave my mom, sis, and best friend bottles of Goth Rosary ('nothingness' unscented) conditioner, accompanied by the fragrance sample pack. I have no idea if they ever bought more, but all really liked this conditioner. My mom (short middle aged hairdo but naturally grey) said it was 'the only thing that controlled my flyaways.' So even non-LHC-type people can enjoy the kind of products we use! :)

A Bottle of Hair Vitamins?

Probably already mentioned:

some nice kind of ornament or selection thereof. Hit up Sally's Beaty Supply or better yet, Claire's.
Think about her age, how she dresses generally, her activities, your price range(!), and her skin tone as well as hair color.

I like a nice set of hair sticks that match. You know, Long Hair Loom's webmaster, Fox, does sell hair sticks where you can choose the top bead(s) yourself.

Maybe a few scrunchies?

A comb? on eBay there are horn combs for sell relatively cheap! OR The Body Shop's wood comb -- that's a nice comb. (Some kind of wide-toothed comb.)

A bobby pin or selection of them with glittery bits on the end.....(butterfly, dragonfly, just a bit of pizzazzy dash of color)

See that insignia on the comb? That means this comb is made from wood that comes from sustainable forest!
Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified beech wood.

What about a satin or sateen or very soft pillowcase for her tresses to slide on all night long?

Maybe a Mister Bottle,with some nice mix of EOs in it?

Thanks to everyone for all the great ideas! I'm thrilled with the variety of items. Now I'm gonna need a bigger basket. :D

Merry :xmas:

Shea butter, a shampoo bar, and oils (Coconut, Jojoba or Sweet Almond).

I don't have anything else to add but just want to say it's an amazing gift idea and one that I would surely love to receive. :o

I don't think I would include hair vitamins, unless that's something she's mentioned wanting to try before. It might seem like saying she needs them, but you know your friend better than a random internet person.
