diy beauty gifts

Today I'm sharing a few favorite diy beauty gifts from around the internet! 


First up, this peppermint candy cane sugar scrub. There is a pretty good argument that I just like this because of the cute packaging and layered effect. However, it's also festive smells good and is useful. All good gift-giving adjectives. 

Next, sugar lip scrubs in AMAZING scents! The link includes recipes for a cinnamon sugar scrub, rosemary mint, and pumpkin spice (if your friends and family still can't get enough). These are made with a coconut oil base which is what I use to help keep dry, winter skin away. Plus, they're budget-friendly, adorable, and made with fresh ingredients. 

Finally - homemade body butter! This moisturizer is seriously simple. Take coconut oil, honey, and citrus zest dump it all in your stand mixer, whip it up, and put it in a cute jar. That's it! 

These would be perfect as individual gifts, or pack them all together in a basket with a note for your more holiday-frazzled friends. It will give them an excuse to take a little extra time for themselves which we all need now and then.

More to come on gift-giving later this week. I hope you're enjoying the lists so far!
