18 DIY Beauty Recipes and Gift Ideas. Give the Gift of Beauty with these Homemade Beauty Recipes

The Gift Giving season is upon us again. Christmas seems to roll around faster and faster every year, doesn’t it? Crazy how the time flies ….

While I love Christmas shopping (sort of), I much prefer making gifts for my loved ones by hand. And I prefer receiving a present that someone took time and care to make for me.

So, a few years ago my friends and I decided to give each other only homemade Christmas presents. My absolute favorite gifts to make are homemade beauty products such as bath salts and fizzies, body scrubs and lotions.

These presents are always much appreciated and they’re such fun to make. DIY beauty recipes are also very quick to make so they’re a great choice for last minute gift ideas! And the bonus is, these gifts are consumable because nobody really needs any more stuff sitting around, do we?

FYI, one of my besties has a standing order for my Brown Sugar & Vanilla Body Scrub (recipe #10).

A big Thank You to the lovely ladies for sharing their beauty recipes. Technically, a couple of these gift ideas are not exactly homemade, but I liked the ideas so wanted to include them here as well.

If you have a favorite DIY gift idea, please share! Enjoy :)
