    Crystal, Thank you for all the DIY Christmas gift ideas! The sugar scrub from yesterday turned out awesome and I’m excited for the smores kits. Perfect!

    Love the DIY Christmas gifts! First of all, I love receiving these type gifts – it makes me feel special! I love giving these gifts too, but I tend to go the route of doing a holiday tin filled with homemade goodies such as almond bark covered pretzels, fudge, Christmas cookies, homemade toffee, and little bites of homemade fruitcake. I always attach an handmade card or handmade tag and tie with ribbon.

    I’ve also made homemade kahlua and irish cream and bottled them in small bottles and given as a set to my close friends and family. Those were a huge hit. I printed labels on my computer and stuck them to the bottles and tied the necks with curling ribbon.

    A friend of mine gave salt scrubs one year, and I used every bit of mine. She tied a cute little metal scoop to the jar (fiy the metal scoop rusted, so plastic would be better for the shower!)

    love the smores kit! this year so many family members are going through hard times, so I’m making freezer meals. breakfast-cinnamon rolls/quiche, lunch-broccoli mac ‘n cheese, and dinner- pizza kits/not sure what else?

    All three of these ideas are wonderful. Our family is doing all homemade gifts this year, and I think we will be making some of these. Thanks so much for posting.
