50+ Easy DIY Christmas Gifts Ideas For Happy Bellies & Bodies

50+ Easy DIY Christmas Gifts Ideas For Happy Bellies & Bodies

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 Stress Away essential oil if you have it, and take a breather before the holiday madness starts. Cause, I've got you covered! I spent far too much time roaming around the interwebs collecting 50+ awesome DIY projects involving real food recipes, homemade beauty products, and cool (yet practical) knick-knacks for 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!
