Coasters are yet another very functional gift idea you can gift someone without any confusion.

DIY MINT SUGAR SCRUB FOR WINTER:
If you have a friend in your circle who loves to pamper himself with homemade bath and body products then make an effort to gift him a tub of DIY mint sugar scrub and make him drool over your offbeat idea. As this Christmas season is gonna be all flooded with everything ‘MINT’, we thought of including the scrub idea having all the goodness of pastel-y mint, coconut oil, and sugar. It is easy to DIY and when you scoop in all the scrub into a mason jar and nicely decorate it with red and white twine and some personalized note, it shows your affection and love to the zenith.

CROCHET CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS:
Hanging the stockings the night before Christmas has been an age-old practice.

So, gifting an assortment of aromatic candles can be of great appreciation during this year’s Christmas gifting time. The Christmas smells elevate the spirit of Christmas up to the next level. Make aromatic candles using clove oil, orange oil or cinnamon oil or pine essential oil or any essential oil that has that woody and warm smell and gift your neighbor or relative to make them gleam in joy.
