Homemade gifts for adults
Nothing says luxury and self-pampering quite like a nourishing body oil. telling you the steps (and the great ingredients to include) when creating your own. And my favorite way to package these when giving them as a gift is in a decorative glass bottle with a cork stopper (very commonly on sale for VERY little money at Hobby Lobby – like this, only they have a plethora of colors in the store).
But a few more blends/ideas:
2. Nourishing Hot Oil Hair Treatment
This is a fab gift idea if you know a woman who’s really into her hair. I do these frequently, and every goshdarned time, I fall in love with my hair just a little bit more.
Here’s the recipe I typically use when I make a hot oil hair treatment (although I increased the ingredients so you could give a several-use bottle to your friend or loved one).
Crunchy Betty’s Favorite Hot Oil Hair Treatment for Any Hair Type
- 1/4 c. jojoba oil
- 1/8 c. wheat germ oil
- or 10 drops chamomile essential oil (for blondes and grays)
Mix all ingredients in a small bottle and shake well. Should keep for at least a year. To use: In a small glass or bowl, pour 3-5 Tbsp of oil (depending on hair length and thickness). Fill a larger bowl with very hot water. Place the glass/bowl of oil on top of the hot water and allow to heat until nice and warm. Apply to dry hair. Wrap with a hot towel and allow the oils to sit on the hair for 30 minutes to an hour. Wash as usual (you probably won’t need to condition).

3. Picture Tiles (SO Inexpensive!)
You guys remember these, right?
Even better, if you take these and use a waterproof spray coating, they can easily turn into a set of coasters. Glue a few dots of thin cork material on the bottom for extra gripping power. But whether you’re making picture tiles or coaster, you can expect the cost for each of these to be around 50 to 75 cents. But the thought that goes into them? Priceless.

If it's for your mom then this gift basket will be perfect. And some of the stuff that goes in is handmade as well, plus you don't realy need to be an expert. There are instructions for everything. I think she (or any female recepient, teen and up) would appreciate something like this.
I hope you have use of this, its an article I wrote myself and have used on quite a few of my friends and fam. They always love it :)
