Handmade Fashion Accessories
If you have the knack for fashion but the budget is on the tight end, we suggest making Homemade Gifts like headbands, belts and even jewelry. The raw materials are very affordable but with artistic flair, crafty hands and inspiration from fashion magazines, you can make gifts that look expensive.
For example, you can make a paillette flower headband by combining a store-bought plain headband with sequins, silk flower and glitter. Or a braided leather-lace belt can be made for the fashionist in the house.
Homemade Spa Products
Well, of course, you can always purchase the bath products with the natural logos at the stores and online sites. Then again, where's the fun, fab factor and personal touch in it? You are better off making your own spa products since you can set aside a few tubs or jars of the finished product for yourself.
Let's start with a homemade body scrub, which only requires 4 basic ingredients to make but the benefits will be seven ways to Sunday. You can choose either sugar or Epsom salts for the base depending on your choice of large or fine grain body scrubs.
These Homemade Gifts can be colored to suit the scents used, say, green for eucalyptus, pink for grapefruits and lavender for lilacs.
You can also make bath fizzles, bath soaps and even a lip balm to top off your gift basket. Although you may have to spend time making these spa products, your efforts will be well rewarded when your friends oh and ah over your gifts.
