It can be a bit tricky to find a gift for your self-indulgent friend. While there are a lot of beauty products on the market, most of them tend to a bit too expensive. But you don’t have to break the bank; here are three gift ideas that are perfect for your self-indulgent friend.
1. Self-Care Spa Kit
Save your money from overpriced lotions or moisturizers and create your own self-care spa kit. Not only is it cheap, it’s also very easy to do. This spa kit consists of a scrub, a body lotion, and a foot lotion. For a clean and sophisticated look, stack the jars over each other and tie them with a ribbon.
For the scrub, simply microwave one-fourth cup of coconut oil until it melts. Then add a cup of sugar, a few drops of food coloring and essential oils. Then put it all in a glass jar with a lid.
The body butter is just as easy; simply melt 3 ounces of cocoa butter with 4 ounces of coconut oil. Then cool in the fridge for five minutes, the whip with a mixer until fluffy. Add a few drops of essential oil and food coloring, then store in a jar.
For the foot soak, simply mix a cup of Epsom salt, a half cup of baking soda, and a half cup of sea salt. Then add a few drops of essential oils and food coloring. Then put in a glass jar.
2. Ready-Made Hot Cocoa Mug
The holidays are the perfect time to snuggle up and be cozy in bed. Whether you have someone to snuggle with or not, it’s always good to have a cup of hot chocolate to keep you warm.
To create your own hot cocoa mug, all you need is to add equal parts of powdered milk, cocoa powder, and sugar, in a glass mug. Layer them to make it look pretty. If you want, you can top your drink with marshmallows, chocolate chips, or chunks of peppermint.
Simply tie it with a ribbon and add a note saying to add a half cup of hot water, and stir. For an added festive detail, tie a small spoon with the ribbon.
3. Yogurt and Honey Face Mask
Face masks are surprisingly easy to make. All you need is honey, yogurt, a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon, and a small jar. Start by mixing together equal parts honey and yogurt, then sprinkle the nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour the mixture into a glass jar, decorate with a ribbon, and include instructions stating to leave it on for five minutes and rinse. You could print this out on sticker paper, or write it on a card.
