Sugar Scrub Gifts

Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas

Have fun creating your own signature body scrub by experimenting with various scents from essential oils like grapefruit, lavender or peppermint, found in specialty markets or craft stores.

These easy-to-make sugar scrubs can have all the glamour of a luxurious spa gift. Add a glittery ribbon, a scented candle and a soothing music CD as the perfect complements to your gift basket. It's just the right way to relax after a long day of baking!

A little goes a long way with the sugar body scrub when giving as gifts. Use small mason jars or washed out baby food jars as containers. Decorate the lids by cutting out fabric scraps in a circle shape about 2 inches larger than the lid. Glue the fabric to the lid, then tie a pretty coordinating ribbon, gathering the fabric, around the neck of the jar. Don't forget to let the recipient know that you were the one sweet enough to make these for them!
