For an extra moisturizing touch, bath oils are a great gift.

Not only will you save yourself the dough, but your loved ones will appreciate not having to drop tons of bucks at a spa.

3. Body scrub

Homemade body scrub could not be easier to whip up. And, in the tough winter months, dry skin is ever-present. Allow your family and friends to slough it away with a moisturizing scrub. If you need ideas on scents, try a coffee or peach & brown sugar variety.

4. Hand soap

Hand soap is an underrated household item, and one that should be as luxurious as any other personal care creation. DIY hand soap does not have to be tricky and, instead, can be a more environmentally friendly option. Pick essential oils you think will complement the holiday season well, like orange or peppermint.

5. Body butter

Hydrating for both hands and body, slathering on a moisturizing cream after a hot bath or shower is often the best part of this self-care routine. Make it count by gifting some hand-crafted creams, using affordable and simple ingredients, like these rose body butter and pumpkin body butter recipes.

If you are also crafty outside of the kitchen, gather up some reclaimed wood and fashion a simple wooden bath tray that looks like it came from a catalogue. This essential bath time item turns a relaxing soak into a spa treatment.
