It's about that time of year, y'all. You know, the time when crafty go-getters are finishing up their perfectly planned holiday presents (not me!) and all the rest of us aspiring Type-B crafters are scrambling for holiday gift ideas to make for friends and loved ones. 

Well, put on your comfy pants and a little calming essential oil if you have it, and take a breather before the holiday madness starts. I've got you covered! I spent far too much time roaming the interwebs collecting 50+ awesome DIY projects involving homemade beauty & personal care products and cool (yet practical) knick-knacks to use around the home. 

Several of these recipes are my own tried and true projects that I've given as gifts for the past several years. In fact, I'm making more peppermint lip balm to give out for Christmas. And even better, the vast majority of these holiday gifts can be made in only a few hours!

I'll be posting a separate list soon with edible food gifts (my favorite), so keep an eye out for that.

Homemade Christmas Gifts - Beauty & Personal Care Recipes:

Homemade beauty & personal care products made with inexpensive, non-toxic ingredients are THE BEST. They smell amazing, work really well, and are SO much healthier than most department store stuff (no weird additives).

We're talking simple ingredients like cane sugar, carrier oil (olive oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, or coconut oil), beeswax (pastilles or bars), shea butter, cocoa butter, raw honey, vitamin E oil, vegetable glycerin, essential oils, and more.
Most of these ingredients last a long time and can be used in a bunch of different personal care/DIY beauty recipes so you can continue to craft stuff for yourself and loved ones all year long.

Homemade Christmas Gifts - Crafts (Requires Sewing or Extra Tools):

Yes, I know these are all supposed to be "easy", but that's a relative term, right?  Some folks think sewing and using drills or saws IS easy. ;) I mostly wanted to add these cause I think they're all cool. Especially the giant Jenga set. That would be SO much fun to play!
