Giving the right present is an act of sincere love as it shows that you really care about the relationship. Rather than just picking up anything you see from the store, making the present yourself shows that you have committed to spending time thinking about what the person likes and putting in the effort to bring this vision to life. These beautiful presents will send this message exactly, and as if that wasn't already a good enough reason, these beauty presents can all be made last-minute at home, so no more stressing and last-minute store runs. All full of natural ingredients, they don't take very much time to make, and the end result is filled with love.
1. Rosewater Perfume
Rosewater has magical qualities for the skin, acting as a soothing substance while also being incredibly refreshing and revitalizing. This gift is easy to make, smells divine, and can be given to your friend in a beautiful little bottle that you might have laying around the house. All you need to do is boil some water with rose petals, add some drops of jojoba oil at the end for consistency, then voila. You have a finished product that any beauty-conscious person would die for.
2. Coffee Scrub
Another great smelling beauty gift is a coffee body scrub. This can be made with just a few simple ingredients; ground coffee, brown sugar, and coconut oil (yes, these could also be turned into delicious cookies if the mood strikes you). Place in a cute little jar, and there you have a body scrub that will both exfoliate and moisturize the skin in the best kind of way.
3. Honey & Brown Sugar Lip Scrub
Who doesn't want beautifully fresh luscious lips? Give your friend the gift of softness with this homemade brown sugar and honey scrub. You can make as much of this as you feel like giving, with the ingredients just being brown sugar, honey, and coconut oil. This should be washed off the lips after application as it serves as an exfoliator, but adding some coconut oil afterward would be a great way to seal in the final silkiness.
4. Natural Homemade Hairspray
This hairspray will leave your hair looking fresh, shiny, and sleek while also giving the hair a delightful smell. It's so simple to make, involving just water, sugar, vanilla extract, and essential oils. This will work in the same way any other hairspray would, except in this case you know all the ingredients. Plus, it's a unique gift that will make your friend think of you every time they use it.
5. Ginger Detox Bath Tea
Who doesn't love spending some time relaxing in the bath? Well, this ginger detox bath tea can be given as a gift in a cute little pot or jar. It simply contains the ingredients: Epsom salts, sea salt, essential oil, and grated ginger. Mixed together and put in a bath will help to detox the body, improve circulation, and ease pain. It's a real pampering treat to give to your friend that she for sure won't be expecting.
6. Whipped Body Butter
Applying body butter after a bath or shower is a self-love treat that we all have to indulge in once in a while. This whipped body butter is creamy and full of natural ingredients - indulgent in all the right ways! It uses shea butter, mango butter, coconut oil, and essential oils, so we won't blame you if you have to resist the temptation to try tasting a bit! This butter is ultra-moisturizing as well as smells delicious, and really does look good enough to eat.
