Looking for some homemade Christmas gift ideas? You’ve come to the right place! I’ve got ten great ideas here for fun, easy, and inexpensive DIY Christmas Gifts for everybody on your list 🙂
Cold process soap is reasonably easy to make, and there’s no end to what you can do with it. Once you’ve got the basics you’re set to whip up a room full of soap for every gift-giving occasion. Keep in mind that soap does need 3–4 weeks to age before use, though, so be sure to get started on your Christmas soap sooner rather than later. Here’s my Christmas soap recipes from the last few years—you’re sure to find something that catches your eye!
- Snowdrift Soap
- Christmas Stripe Soap
- Candy Cane Soap
- Hot Chocolate Soap
- Pumpkin Pie Soap
- Blizzard Soap
- Cranberry Sauce Soap
Warming Spiced Sugar Scrub
This lovely holiday-spiced sugar scrub comes together in a jiffy and looks lovely in a mason jar with some pretty ribbon. If you don’t like gingerbread, check out my peppermint and cocoa sugar scrub as an alternative.
Rocky Mountain Foot Butter
This fresh, clean body butter is just lovely for tired toes, and is just the thing for an at-home pedicure. If you know anyone who loves to walk and hike, this tingly foot butter will be right at home in their stocking.
Christmas Bath Bombs
Perfect for bath lovers everywhere, these fizzy Christmas scented treats are fantastic for stocking stuffers.
White Chocolate Body Frosting
This decadent whipped body frosting smells downright divine. It’s so white-chocolatey your mouth will probably water as you whip up a batch for all the chocolate lovers in your family.
Candy Cane Body Lotion
I’m in love with this pretty, striped lotion. Not only does it smell wonderful, but it leaves the skin soft and hydrated. Mmmm.
Creamy Cocoa Body Truffles
These beautiful little nuggets look downright edible, so I recommend warning your recipients before they accidentally chow down. With peppermint laced unrefined shea butter (USA / Canada) cores and a smooth cocoa coating, they’re fantastic little skin treats.
Lip balm is a perennial and easy gift giving favourite. It’s so easy to lose that everybody always seems to need a new tube, and I’ve got lots of recipes for everybody on your list.
For that person on your list who loves to push their limits in their work outs, tiger balm is perfect for sore muscles. The homemade version is also wonderfully free of petroleum byproducts!
A bottle of homemade Bandits Oil makes a great gift for friends who are interested in natural cleaning and healing. Accompanied by a short list of possible uses, they’ll be sure to put it good use, and will appreciate not having to purchase the five or so essential oils required to make your own right off the bat.
And, of course, if nothing here strikes your fancy I’ve got well over 650 recipes online for you to peruse. There’s also last year’s entry on the same topic 🙂
