  • Beautiful Handmade Gifts in 10 Minutes Tops

    It happens every year, doesn't it? You get in a pinch and you need a last minute gift!

    Well I'm here to give you two simple but beautiful gifts that take less than 10 minutes to make!

    First up is this simple sugar scrub. A good sugar scrub helps to soften and exfoliate even the toughest skin like on your feet, knees and elbows. The older I get the more I love a good bath and good bath products so this is a great gift to me! 

    DIY Sugar Scrub


    1/2 C Course organic sugar

    1/4 C coconut oil (slightly melted)

    10-15 drops of essential oil (I used Vitruvi Eucalyptus Oil)


    Mix sugar and coconut oil together, add in drops of EO and mix again

    Yep, it's that easy. Now put it in a cute little container and it's ready to gift!

    ORRRRR take your packaging up a notch by adding an easy DIY wire ornament!

    This is another seriously less than 10 minute investment and looks so cute when

    added to gifts!

    The sky is the limit with these! You can make any word or name you want!

    I used Artistic Wire 18 gauge in Brass for mine. It was $2.99 at Hobby Lobby and I had a 50% off coup so only $1.50 and I made 6 ornaments and still have about half the spool left!

    I just free handed mine but if you don't feel confident in your cursive letters, just print some out on a sheet of paper and use it as a guide for yourself!


    Make sure to add a small loop to each end of your word if you're wanting to add a ribbon hanger!


    And here you have the two gifts combined! Easy, affordable and super cute!

    Wanna make this gift a bit more substantial? Throw in some extra Vitruvi Essential oils 

    and this recipe so they can continue to make their own sugar scrubs!
