I love receiving beauty gifts made by friends and family members and wanted to share my favorite beauty gifts ideas with you. I like knowing that they’ve put time and thought into what they’re giving me rather than simply ordering the latest *thing* on someone’s top 10 list. Nothing beats a thoughtful homemade gift , and homemade personal care items are very easy to create from scratch.

Beauty Gifts Ideas With a Homemade Touch
There are so many different homemade beauty gifts ideas you can make very simply. Just a few ideas I’ve created in the past are facial masks, bath salts, hair rinses, lip balm and bath teas. When I create beauty gifts, I generally start with bulk items because it helps keep the cost down. If you cannot find them in your local health food coop, I’ve included a few helpful links below.
You will need a variety of different glass jars, bottles, tins, and bags depending on the type of beauty gift you’re making. You can purchase them new or you can upcycle/recycle things that you already have around the house. Mason jars are one of my favorite types of jars to use for this because they are affordable, and I always have dozens at home that I’m not using.
For a special homemade touch, instead of simply wrapping the homemade item and presenting it on its own, dress it up with a handwritten label and a ribbon. Add it to a basket that contains a few other small gifts like a washcloth, loofah, hair brush, candles, hair accessories, or a bathrobe. You can spend as much or as little as you like depending on the person you’re buying for.
