DIY Hot Chocolate Mix
Making a homemade hot chocolate mix is really simple and fun. And the good thing is, the kiddies can join in too. All you need are some good quality mason jars like these, some cocoa powder, powdered creamer, some powdered milk, sugar, mini marshmallows, and crushed candy canes. You can find the recipe details here.
DIY Coconut Oil Exfoliating Face Scrub
Exfoliating helps rid the skin of dead skin cells which if left unchecked, could lead to breakouts in people with acne-prone skin. Gift your loved ones with a homemade exfoliating face scrub. Homemade exfoliating face scrubs are inexpensive, easy to make and some can even last up three months if stored correctly. Check out this DIY coconut oil exfoliating face scrub by Kristina.
My grandma was a pro when it came to knitting. She was without a doubt, the queen of knitting and I’ll forever be thankful to her for sharing a tiny bit of that gift with me. If knitting is something that you’ve always wanted to try out, then now is the time to give it a go. Why not gift your loved ones with one of your awesome creations! There are great knitting videos for beginners on Youtube to help you get started.
Knitted items are one of the best Christmas presents that you can give to someone. And with the vast variety of yarn available these days, your knitted piece will be soft, comfy and made by you with love.
DIY Scented Candles
Scented candles make a fantastic Christmas gift. I strongly recommend Anjou Natural’s scented candles. Not only do their candles smell lovely, but they are also made from biodegradable natural ingredients. Their unique scents include Blackberry and Bay, Pear & Freesia, Orange and Peppermint, and Soft Blanket.
Nigella’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
Who wouldn’t love a little cookie indulgence, especially during the holidays? Nigella Lawson (I love her) is one of my favorite celebrity chefs and for good reasons. Her recipes are just amazing, and she never disappoints (and no she’s not paying me to write this). Her chocolate chip cookies make an excellent, cheap and delicious Christmas gift. You can find her delicious chocolate chip cookies recipe here.
Gift Someone with A Fun Mug
Mugs make fresh, fun, budget-friendly Christmas gifts too. Amazon.com has some really fun mugs with some hilarious prints on them. Check them out.
