Each holiday season, I look for inspiration on which homemade Christmas gift I can create for family & friends. I love thinking of & creating a new homemade gift ideas each year to gift my loved ones! There are a couple of requirements when I’m brainstorming the perfect homemade gift idea; it has to be easy for me to make, something anyone would love (gender neutral, non-age specific), and include natural ingredients.
Some of the homemade gifts I’ve made in previous years include vanilla extract (I still get requests for more of that), cinnamon dough ornaments, Christmas cookies, and stovetop potpourri.
This year I stumbled upon coconut oil sugar scrubs and decided this would be the perfect homemade gift of 2022. My family fell in love with sugar scrubs many years ago while in Disney. We found a store in one of the Disney resorts that sold sugar hand scrubs, and so every time we walked by, we had to “test” the sugar scrubs! It made our hands feel so soft. So with a recipe and memory in mind, coconut oil sugar scrub Christmas gifts it is!

Just add the sugar scrub to a mason jar, tie a bow, and you’re ready for gift giving! Your family & friends are going to love this gift idea and most importantly how smooth their hands will feel after using.
