Christmas Gift Guide

When it comes to Christmas gifts sometimes the best are homemade gifts! I pulled together this adorable Pampering Gift Basket that would be a great present for anyone on your list who loves to a little Me Time (and really–who doesn’t need some of that??!!)

Homemade Christmas Gifts

Here is what you’ll need!

  • 1 Basket (here in Texas the Garage Sales are *amazing* so you can easily pick up a gorgeous basket for $1 or less)
  • 1 Loofa (around $1 at Wal*Mart)
  • 1 Wash Cloth (around $1 at Wal*Mart)
  • 2 Glass Jars w/ Locking Lids (I got mine at Freds for $1.50 each-check your local Dollar Store)
  • Ingredients for Gingerbread Sugar Scrub  (Remember I gushed about how great this is during our Spa Night In last week)
  • Ingredients for Relaxing Bubble Bath Soak (recipe below)

So basically you get a super luxe looking gift basket for under $10 – a great easy homemade Christmas gift that won’t break the bank! (it might be more if you have to purchase the bulk products for the scrubs/soak but you can use them to make multiple baskets-so it’s worth it!)

Recipe for Relaxing Bubble Bath Soak

  • Andovia Bath Salts from Cleopatra’s Choice TIP: These are great for helping with eczema too! I add some to each bath Amber takes and they’ve really been helping!
  • Village Naturals Therapy Aches & Pains Relief Foaming Bath Oil & Body Wash (got this at Wal*Mart for under $5 it has essential oils and is the first bubble bath I’ve found that I could use on Amber)
  • A Lemon (I don’t need to explain that–right?)

Mix together 2 cups Bath Salts w/ 1 cup body oil, and add Lemon zest, as much as you want for color and fragrance. It will be a little foamy at first. Wait until it settles down and then pour into jar!

Putting it all together! Roll up the washcloth into a roll (you could tie with a fun ribbon if you wanted) Place the jars and the washcloth inside of the basket. Using the loofa tie it around one of the handles to create a pretty “bow” for the basket. Ta Da!

There you are! A beautiful, totally luxurious, totally easy homemade Christmas gift!
