I love making homemade gifts for the people on my list. Not only is it sometimes way more cost effective to hand make gifts for people, it’s also just a little bit more meaningful to show that you put that extra effort into their gift by taking the time to make them something special and unique.
I’m ALWAYS on the hunt for gift ideas for friends (both men and women!), gift ideas for family, and even gift ideas for the kids on my list!
I’ve been sharing A TON of DIY recipes with you guys this year, and so I wanted to do a “round up” of some of my favorite DIY recipes that would make PERFECT homemade gifts for ANYONE and everyone on your gift-giving list!
I’ve got them broken down into categories: DIY Bath & Beauty Gifts, DIY Cleaning & Household Gifts, & DIY Gifts for Kiddos (or a new mama!).
PRO TIP & BONUS: MOST of these DIY recipes make “batches,” so you could make multiples of each and then make gift baskets for people. So, you could have a DIY Bath & Beauty gift basket for one person, a DIY Cleaning or Household basket for someone else, and a DIY Kiddo & Mama basket for another person. All you’d have to do is just package a few of your DIY items up in a cute way and boom! Done!
BONUS BONUS: Since all of these recipes include essential oils, you could easily customize MOST (not all, but MOST) of the recipes with different essential oils for different purposes or scents. 🙂
Have you gotten started with essential oils yet? Check out my page for more info if you want! A starter kit would also make an awesome gift idea this holiday season!
Check them out… I hope you like the ideas!
Just change out the oils for different scents if you like!
This is another recipe that could easily be customized with different oily scents. Lavender? Lemon? Yes, please!
This is one of the easiest on the list… Just add in any desired essential oils!
This recipe is from my friend Kate! I have been wanting to try this recipe and I wanted to include it because, I mean… AWESOME!
I would not change the oils in this one.
