Best Christmas Gifts for Skincare Lovers
DIY Skin Care Gift Basket
My personal favorite gift for skin care lovers (or anyone, really), is to make a customized DIY spa gift basket. You can tailor the items in the gift basket to suit the needs of your recipient, whether it’s your teenage daughter or your great-uncle Bob. (Don’t forget, men have skin care needs too!)
I like to include things like handmade soap, lip balm, bath bombs, skin oils, and an exfoliating sugar scrub. Then I tuck in some white face cloths, a loofah, and a couple DIY candles, and voila!
A beautiful, personalized gift basket at a fraction of the cost of store bought. Plus, you have the benefit of knowing every ingredient that goes into your gift and making sure you only use natural, beneficial ingredients.
