Holiday Gift Idea? - What's Yours?
Ready to kick up your creative side or better yet tap into your entrepreneurial skills? Making scented Holiday gifts is always a fun and exciting project. What better time than now to start thinking of Holiday Gift Ideas.
Holiday gift items are usually what spark the idea for small businesses. You make a batch of bath salts or get creative with soaps and all of a sudden, well at least two months down the road, you've got people asking you for more of that item.
That means it was good enough for you to consider making it again. Before you become this million-dollar maker of scented gift items, how about starting off with a few items that have withstood the test of time.
Soap Making- Soaps never go out of style and you can never have to many variations. Sensitive skin, skin challenged with acne, mature skin or oily skin, all of them have a need for some type of facial cleanser.
The challenge with soaps, especially for your face, is that they can be drying to your skin. So your soaps might be made with Shea butter, which acts as a wonderful moisturizer. Add tea-tree oil and you can help with acne challenges.
Want to exfoliate your body and remove dead skin cells? Make your soaps with a loofah in the middle. By adding Lavender or Immortelle essential oils, you'll provide oils that are said to enhance the beauty of your skin.
Bath Salts - A staple in the gift item world, bath salts are actually easy to make. You can make salts that have herbs in them, flowers in them, essential oils in them or blend them with Shea butter and make luscious body scrubs.
Whether packaged in jars or cello wraps with colorful ribbons, bath salts are always a winner as scented holiday gift items.
Body Powders - OK ... so body powders might be a throw back to the 50's and 60's for some but they make great scented gifts. Used to coat a baby's bottom or keep the perspiration on your chest and breast to a minimum, they work.
When used in your breast area, they emit a radiant fragrance all day long.
These are just a few of the many ideas for holiday gift items. How many of them can you whip up and present to your friends and family?
Life Never Smelled So Sweet!
