A Homemade Christmas

Some of the best gifts are homemade gifts!! There is nothing better than receiving some pampering products from a friend. Here are several ideas for easy to make homemade bath products and put together a pampering gift basket.

Lemon Sugar Scrub (From: Just Another Day in Paradise) Really easy and inexpensive to make bath scrub. You might even have all the ingredients at home already. Put in cute little jelly jars. You can change out the scent for lots of different variations!!

Oatmeal Cookie Bath (From: A Delightful Home) Oatmeal is great for the skin and a wonderful way to pamper the skin during the winter months. You might have all these ingredients on hand for a quick and easy bath soak.

Candy Cane Bath Salts (From: The Peaceful Mom) The perfect holiday gift!! It smells of Christmas and is super easy to make. Put in a glass canning jar and decorate with red and white ribbons.

Homemade Beeswax Lotion (From: A Sonoma Garden) The winter weather dries out our skin and hands so there's nothing better than getting some homemade lotion. This is an easy, and skin nourishing recipe. She is also offering a free printable label download for this lotion as well as free christmas printable labels for the other homemade gifts you are making.

Curious George DVD Coupon!

This week Target has the Curious George DVD's for $4.75 each. Use this $3.00/2 Curious George DVD to get 2 DVD's for $3.25 each. This would make great (and inexpensive) Christmas gifts!
