by - December 20, 2015

Hey guys, as it is getting quite close to Christmas and some of you may still be looking for Christmas presents i thought I would share some DIY presents. Hope you enjoy. xx

Gingerbread Body Scrub

You will need:
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup almond oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 all spice
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Mason Jar with lid

In a medium size bowl combine all ingredients (apart from oils).Gradually add the oils until it's your desired consistency - you may need more or less than the stated amounts. Scoop all the scrub into the mason jar. Decorate the jar and print out a little label to stick on. And your finished! How easy was that!

This is a really easy and affordable gift using things you may already have in the cupboard at home.

Cookie Mountain

You will need:
250g softened butter
140g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour.

Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Then add the egg yolk and vanilla extract until combined. Finally sift the flour - you may need to use your hands to make it into a dough. Then choose 5 different sized stars - 2 cookies of each size. Cut 2 out of each size and pop them in the oven for 15 mins. Then put the 2 stars together and pile them up in size order. Wrap them in cellophane and tie it with some ribbon at the top.

This would be a great gift for work colleagues or if you have a big group of friends as you can make quite a lot of them.

 Hot Chocolate Set

You will need:
1 tub of your favourite hot chocolate
A cute mug
Candy cane (optional)
Wicker basket.

In the basket put the mug and the hot chocolate. Wrap some marshmallows in cellophane and put them in the top of the mug and slot the candy cane over the side of the mug. If you want you can wrap the whole thing in cellophane put you don't have to.

Hope this has helped you. Thanks so much for reading. xxx
