Christmas Eve is tomorrow, I know super late to still get gifts, but I know there are plenty of people out there who may have that one gift still left. Don’t worry about hitting the mall just head to your local craft and grocery store after work and pick up a few items to make yourself two gifts in under 30 minutes! Whether it’s your boss, coworker, teacher, babysitter, or friend, yes they’re that easy and sure to please both women and men!For the men, a black to go hot mug is a great gift; write their name or a funny quote for a great laugh while sipping their morning coffee while heading to work. Buy a blank cup from Michaels Crafts, and follow these steps for my painted mug, using a paint or permanent white marker. Pair with a bag of coffee or tin of tea. I did mine for a gal who just started a new job and is in the car a lot, but I know my boyfriend would really enjoy this gift, since he is always on the go too.
For the ladies, what woman doesn’t love something they can relax with, like calming bath salts. Follow these easy steps for homemade bath salts. I created a Lavender Chamomile jar, with pieces of crushed dried lavender saved from my summer garden, and a few sprinkles of chamomile tea. I tied it up with some dried sprigs of lavender, a wooden spoon that can be found here, and a sweet handwritten note. You can gift this lovely gift alone, or with a pretty bar of soap or small candle.
