(part of our gift packages- all wrapped up and labeled!)
Firstly, spend a weekend (or evening) making some fabulous, environmentally friendly and relatively simple beauty/skin care products. Here are some that I included:
- Chocolate Whipped Body Butter
- Soap (takes 2 weeks to cure)
- Bath Oil
- Lip Scrubs
- Lavender oat face scrub
Other ideas include lip balms and hair pomade.
Find some small glass jars (either reuse some jam jars or purchase some small mason jars). Think of this package as sample sizes gift pack, so the jars can be smaller.
Print off some fabulous printable gift labels (mine are two rustic versions: here and here) off of Pinterest. Hole punch and write the ingredients of the products on the back (and label them something great, like "Cinnamon snap soap"). Tie to the jar or around the soap using cooking string. Done!
For the Soap:
If you have large soaps, cut them in half. Using parchment paper cut in 4inch wide pieces, fold the edges (all four), wrap up the soap, tie with the cooking string and attach the label.
Organize and place gifts in a small paper bag or nestle in a box and wrap up! (try some funky coloured newspaper for wrapping, trust me it can look fantastic!).
There you have it, beautiful DIY gifts that are easy on your pocket and the environment.
