Homemade gifts are perfect for the holiday time, because they are personal while also being useful! They can be fun to make and you don't have to go through the stress of last minute shopping. You can also make DIY recipes in bulk to make gifts for multiple people. Here are four of my favorite homemade gift ideas! (Just click on the gift name to go to the directions)
- Homemade Hot Chocolate Mix. This gift is perfect for everyone! Plus the layers (especially the peppermint) look really pretty through the clear jar! Although this recipe is for hot chocolate, this idea can also work with other recipes such as cookies by layering the different ingredients!
- DIY Lemon Scrub. Sugar and salt scrubs are a fun gift for beauty lovers. This recipe is for a body scrub, however you can also find recipes for face and lip scrubs for gifts!
- Italian Feast Gift Basket. Homemade gift baskets are always a good gift and I love the idea of an Italian gift basket with pasta and homemade sauce! Such a cute idea! Movie baskets are also fun to put together!
- Homemade Face Mask with Pumpkin. Like the sugar scrubs, face masks are also a fun idea! There are many face mask recipes and you can find some that don't require refrigeration.
