After spending years making my own beauty products, I can tell you this for sure. People love to receive DIY beauty gifts! My family always knows to expect a little something from me every Christmas and it’s also something I enjoy doing too. Each recipe is made with love and are all items that I’ve tested out myself.

DIY beauty gifts are also budget friendly. Most of the ingredients you’ll probably already have in your pantry and use on a regular basis. Mind you, you most likely EAT these ingredients, but as you’ll see, they have other interesting and beneficial uses too!

If I’m keeping the scrub for my own personal use, I’d use a regular household mason jar. For gift giving, I like to get a bit fancier. Make it pretty! Buy a decorative mason jar or spiff one up yourself with a little burlap and ribbon.

On the lid, give it some rustic charm with a chalkboard label.  Write the name of the product with a White Liquid Chalk Marker. Put it in a festive gift bag filled with coloured tissue paper, add a holiday label and voila! You have a heartfelt, homemade gift!
