I am a big fan of home made Holiday gifts. Sure you can go out and buy presents, but to me it means a lot more when someone puts their time and love into making something special for me. If you have the time, it is so worth it to make your own creations to give your friends and family. I have quite a few things on this blog that I think would make wonderful gifts or stocking stuffers, so I thought I would share them with you in case you need ideas of things to make. Some of them are edible, and some are body care related but I think there are things everyone can appreciate on this list! I hope you draw some inspiration from my ideas.
This stuff works to soothe the most chapped winter skin, I use it during the cooler months when my skin is parched and it actually helps it heal. Not only that, it smells like dessert when you put it on, and it looks like vanilla frosting. It would be a wonderful gift for anyone who you feel needs pampering.
These are one of my favorite things lately. I recently made them, and although I gave some away, I kept many for myself and it is a good thing since I am going through them fast. They smell so delicious. The flavors are brownie batter, vanilla maple, rose grapefruit, and lavender orange. You can mix and match to create your own flavors, and everyone can use a little protection from chapped lips this time of the year.
Not only does this scrub smell amazing, but it helps to fight cellulite thanks to the coffee. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and invigorated, and it has the aroma of an almond latte! There is nothing like the smell of coffee in the morning, and this would be perfect for the coffee lover in your life!
Leave the refined sugar to body care this Holiday season. This scrub honestly smells like a lemon coconut lavender macaroon. I am one of those people who likes to put things on her body that smell like dessert, and this is just that. It leaves your skin silky as the sugar gently polishes.
This cookie dough butter is my latest addiction. It seriously tastes like sugar cookie dough, and it is wonderful in smoothies, with fruit, or just out of the jar. It is simple to make, and anyone with a sweet tooth in your life would love this special treat!
If you have anyone in your life who is a fan of chocolate peanut butter cups, you need to make them this. It is simply heavenly, and is the peanut butter lover's answer to nutella. I made some for my boyfriend and it was devoured in no time.
This granola is wonderful for a quick breakfast or snack, and it is gift worthy when put into mason jars tied with a bowl. It a good excuse to have chocolate for breakfast and is wonderful on top of a smoothie bowl. Plus it packs a superfood energy boost, which we can all use.
A little spice in my breakfast makes me happy, and this granola is just that. A little sweet with the addition of apple, this is a wonderful gift for the busy person in your life that may not have time to make their own breakfast in the morning.
Chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate is what these guys are made of. They keep well, and are free of refined sugar so much healthier than the store bought ones available. These are perfect for the brownie lover in your life.
This is the most heavenly fudge I have ever made. Think nutella in fudge form, but even more heavenly. You show up with a tin of this to a Holiday party, and everyone will be happy.
These are perfect for the spice lover in your life. A little bit of chipotle in these gives them a kick, the maca a little bit of a boost in the romance department, and the cinnamon rounds out the sweet flavor.
These guys are eggnog in truffle form. The chocolate is wonderful with the creamy sweet eggnog flavor. If anyone in your life is an eggnog lover, you definitely need to give them a tin of these.
