Hello lovelies! Christmas is just around the corner, so I decided to share with you guys some christmas gift ideas that you can make at home! You can make these gifts for any occasion, not just christmas.
If you are like me, you save all your christmas shopping until the last minute, but this year I am going to be prepared and I encourage you to do so too!
So enjoy! If you do make any of these, please let me know! x x x Jasper

Add a spoonful of this to your bath for a sooth and relax your body.
y o u w i l l n e e d :
scented foaming bath (you can also use 10-15 drops of essential oil)
food colouring (optional)
a jar or container
Divide the epsom salt into two bowls. Add in your scent. I used a lavender scented foaming bath, which has a soapy consistency. I added in around a tablespoon. If you are using essential oil, add in 10-15 drops. Next add in the food colouring. I only added a drop and as you can tell, a little goes a long way. I decided to leave one bowl (left) unscented and uncoloured, but it is up to you.
Stir until the food colouring and scent is evenly distributed.
Next take a spoonful of each and layer it in your jar. Be as creative as you want, you can even make it rainbow if you wanted too! I added a label to make it a tad bit fancier. And you are finished!

I am absolutely in love with this necklace! It is gorgeous and completely customizable. Oh, and super easy to make!
y o u w i l l n e e d :
paint & sharpies to decorate
First you are going to shape the clay into beadlike shapes. I used a pencil to poke a hole in the centre. Next, bake them in the oven. For the clay that I used, you are supposed to bake at 95° for 30 minutes, but follow the instructions on the package of your clay.
Once they get out of the oven, the fun begins! Decorating! I used sharpies and acrylic paint to decorate the beads.
Once you have finished decorating, string a chain or twine through the beads and you are done!

This diy lip scrub exfoliates your lips and tastes great! At lush, you can purchase lip scrubs for $10, but you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen!
vanilla extract (or whatever scent you want)
Your first step is to add 1/2 a tsp of granulated sugar and 1/2 a teaspoon of olive oil together in a bowl.
Add a drop of vanilla extract and mix together. Add 1 or 2 drops of food colouring. I recommend sticking to neutral tones, because if you add too much it might dye your lips!
Put the mixed product in a container and you are finished!
I hope you enjoyed these three diys! Thank you for reading
