Make DIY bath and body recipes for gifts and give them to all your friends and family this year! These healthy, non-toxic self-care ideas are perfect for Christmas, birthdays, and any special occasion when you want to show some love.
Homemade DIY Gifts
We all have so much “stuff’ these days. So why not skip the store-bought plastic-wrapped products and make something by hand instead?
What’s an easy homemade gift I can make that someone will actually want to receive? I know that’s a question that comes up every winter as Christmas approaches, if not before.
Don’t waste time, energy, or money. Everyone enjoys a little pampering but there’s nothing frivolous about these natural self-care products you can make at home. They are great for a birthday, holiday, or special occasion gift throughout the year because handmade personal care recipes never go out of style.
All of the ideas included here are unique, 100% handmade, and will add real value to the recipient’s life! With options for women, men, and teenagers, so you can tick everyone off your list.
As a bonus, many recipes make large batches with enough to share with multiple people. For example, a single soap recipe will usually make nine or more bars of soap. My lip balm recipe below makes 12 tubes of lip balm. Pick a few and spread the love all around! You can even keep some for yourself.
If you want to skip the DIY process and buy something instead, browse through this list of gifts for keto dieters instead.
