  • The Handmade Hostess Gift Guide | 20 DIY Hostess Gift Ideas

    They were gracious to include you & go to great effort to host. Here are a few of my handmade hostess gift ideas to share your thanks!

    It’s fun to play with something other than food in the kitchen, every now & then. Homemade sugar scrubs are the perfect solution. Free of preservatives & perfect for nourishing your skin. My sugar scrub recipes have been wildly popular since I started sharing them over 4 years ago!

    This tangy citrus sugar scrub will relieve your skin from the dry winter. It’s a trip to the spa in a pretty little package! Add a little mint, add a little magic! Orange mint sugar scrub is invigorating!
