7 Easy and Inexpensive DIY Christmas Gifts

1. Sea Salt Scrub

You can’t get much easier than this Sea Salt Scrub recipe!  This easy and nourishing recipe contains sea salt, coconut oil and essential oil…that’s it! And it will make your skin so smooth! In fact, if I know I’m going somewhere special, I make it a point to use this sea salt scrub on my face and body the night before so my skin gets infused with minerals and nutrients and is left super soft, smooth and glowing. I make a bunch of these adorable little jars over the holiday season and give them out to my hair stylist, massage therapist, chiropractor and their office staff and a few other people who have been a blessing in my life over the year.

2. Miracle Salve

This salve is seriously the best. I can’t say enough good things about it. It will soothe and help heal the driest of dry, cracked, chapped and scaly skin. It really is like a miracle cream.  It’s one of those things that you just have to try to believe and then you’ll realize why I’m so crazy about it.

And just a fair warning – I started giving this miracle salve to friends and family a few years ago for small Christmas presents and now they request it every single year. Just be prepared to make it every year from here on out ?

3. Detox Bath Salts

These Homemade Bath Salts are a gift that my grandmother specifically requests every birthday and Christmas. She tells all the grandkids, “I don’t want any gifts, except Kelly can make me some of those bath salts.” Yes, ma’am, I’m on it! I make a huge batch of bath salts for her and also include my favorite organic and natural soap bar (Find HERE).

4. DIY Beard Oil

This beard oil is a recipe my husband developed earlier this year and we think it makes such a nice gift for the bearded men in your life. It has such a nice manly smell and it’s so good for skin and hair health. If you want to step the gift up a notch, my husband recommends gifting it alongside his very favorite razor and organic shave bar

5. Coffee Bean Face Oil

This coffee bean face oil is a favorite and top rated skincare recipe of mine. It’s absolutely luxurious and I use it as my daily moisturizer. It’s only 2 very effective ingredients and many people, including myself, continue to notice some pretty dramatic benefits from using it.  I love this stuff so much! I gave it to my mom as a gift last year and now she’s hooked, too…it’s done wonders for our skin!

6. Homemade Lotion Bar

These 3 ingredient Homemade Lotion Bars are really fun to make and use. Because a lotion bar contains no added water, it’s super concentrated. It deeply moisturizes and nourishes the skin for hours and hours…and it smells like white chocolate! Plus aren’t they so cute? Love!

7. Homemade Grain Free Dog Treats

Of course, we can’t forget about all the furry friends who add so much joy and laughter to our lives! I haven’t met a dog yet who doesn’t love these Homemade Grain Free Dog Treats. My dog is pretty much the pickiest thing in the universe and these are the only treats he scarfs down. Bonus – these treats help keep your pooch flea free and soft and shiny!

    Kelly, thanks for all these great ideas! This year has been crazy and I was thinking I didn’t have time to make any cute gifts. But then I remembered how easy the lotion bars are…I’ve made yours and many variations. And I even have all of the ingredients! Might just get some cute new molds. Hope you have a merry Christmas!

    I am also big fan. Enjoy all your ideas, recipes. Hope you revisit the sauna info again. I missed the discount and would like to get a sauna at some point. I learned a lot from reading all your research.
    Keep all the inspiration coming. Blessings to you in this season.

    Sincerely, Susan

      Thank you so much, Susan!!! <3 I will definitely revisit the sauna information! We had so much good feedback for our Group Buy that Health Mate decided to include us in another group buy for this year. I'm so excited! The details are still being worked out, but I believe the 2017 Primally Inspired Sauna Group Buy will open at the beginning of January and run through February 🙂

      Merry Christmas to you!
