I can’t believe I’m saying this… but Christmas is just 7 and a half weeks away. I can hear you groaning! You’re talking about Christmas before Thanksgiving? Yes, I am. And there’s a good reason.
Homemade gifts are the absolute best. Giving family and friends special items that you took the time to make yourself offers a profound message about what the people in your life mean to you. And in order to find time to make DIY presents, an early start is necessary. Here are some cute and super easy ideas I found on-line.
Bombs – Every woman in my life loves the luxury of a long, hot soak. These
fizzy bath bombs would add a spa-like feel to any bath. They look very easy to
make. Find the instructions at Something

2. Family Photo Collage Letters – These wooden letters are available in any craft store, and so is Mod Podge. All you need are some family photos and a pair of scissors, and you’re all set to craft a fun gift that any of your friends would love to hang on their wall. Find full instructions at House on the Way.

3. Body Butter – Three ingredients, all natural, I might add, are all you need to make this luscious, body-softening cream that can also be used as lip balm. This is a gift that will help alleviate the dry skin problems brought on by the cold winter months. Find out how to make this gift at She Wears Many Hats.
