It’s finally the start of the season we all look forward to—thinking up the perfect holiday gifts for our loved ones. Many people will wait until the last minute and (in a panic) get stuck purchasing the lackluster gifts left on the shelves at the end of December. If you’re smart and plan ahead, you can shower your friends and family with sincere gifts that they’ll actually enjoy using.

We know from experience that hand-made gifts are always the most beloved and cherished, and we’re not talking about the macaroni art you made for your mother in the 2nd grade. This year, try doling out some homemade, all-natural spa gifts that will be just as delightful to receive as they will be to use! Not only are these DIY gifts extremely easy and cheap to make, they’re also completely Earth-friendly and filled with delectable flavors that will ensure your gift is one to remember.

Note: Some products may have shorter shelf lives than others. To ensure your gift stays fresh as long as possible, make in small batches or add an all-natural preservative such as vitamin E T-50 oil and geranium and cinnamon essential oil.
