There are many variations to making a spa-themed basket, and a self-designed custom basket for someone special can be created easily and inexpensively or with a bit more effort and money.

A gift basket for a family with young children can be a movie night theme with a special movie for kids (maybe a recent release so that they don't already own it).

Well, you get the idea, anything that would enhance a movie night at home.
