Blogmas Day 23 - Last Minute DIY Gifts

by - December 23, 2017

You guys always go mad for my "late minute" posts every year... so this year is last minute diy gifts.

Gooey Cookie Mix
This DIY has been around for quite a few years now but it's still one of my favourites! All you have to do is get the dry ingredients for cookies (I use Tanya Burr's Triple Chocolate Cookies(the link is to an old cringey post so have a read if you want a good laugh!)) and fill a jar with the right quantities. Then write a label with a few instructions of what to add to make the cookies! It's such a simple thing but looks really effective!

Pamper Hamper:
Everyone loves a good pamper at this time of year so what could be more fitting; and you can personalise it as much or as little as you like.
  • Wicker Basket (of any size)
  • DVD's
  • Body Scrub
  • Body Lotion
  • Bubble Bath
  • Bath Bombs or Bubble Bars
  • Snacks
  • Face Masks
  • Cleanser
  • Moisturiser
  • Candles
Gingerbread Body Scrub:
Leading on from the pampering theme, this gingerbread scrub is perfect for a last minute secret santa (or for putting in you pamper hamper)!
  • 1 Cup of Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup of Almond Oil
  • 1/2 tsp. of Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp. of Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. of All Spics
  • 1/2 tsp. of Nutmeg
  • A 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 et voila! How easy was that!

Hot Chocolate Kit:
I love having hot chocolates at this time of year and this kit is the cutest!
  • 1 tub of your favourite hot chocolate
  • A cute mug
  • Marshmallows
  • 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 as well!

Thank you all so much for reading, I hope you all enjoyed this post and I'll see you tomorrow,

Love Lou
