DIY Bath & Beauty Gift Ideas

   The main things to remember about gifting self-made beauty products are:

Make something generic:
    It's hard to make a shampoo or cleansing oil when you don't know what kind of skin / hair the person has, whether they like oils at all, and what their beauty routine looks like. However things like bath salts or scrubs will delight almost every one.

Make it pretty:
    Think 'spa', think 'luxury'. Get inspired by a Lush store. The prettier the cosmetic is, the more special it looks. Don't forget the container: Find a cute tin, jar or bottle and decorate it.

Also, do read Rules For Making DIY Gifts That People Actually Want. Finally, don't forget to let the recipient know that the gift is natural and eco-friendly!
