The Holidays are here! That means good food, family, celebrations and the stress that can come with Christmas shopping for those you love. At Sparta Consulting Group (Hollywood, FL), we hope to relieve some of this stress with a few DIY (Do-It-Yourself) ideas in regards to gifts for your loved ones. Why not save some money and put real time and effort into your gifts instead? They will appreciate it just as much as if you’d spent hours in line at the mall, fighting for the last of the available presents. Think outside the box this Christmas season. Perhaps this post will help get your creativity flowing!
- Fill a mason jar with some homemade toffee and wrap it in ribbons with a nice card. No one will be able to thank you enough for the time and effort you put into the gift or the deliciously sweet toffee.
- Buy some plain white mugs from a nearby store and get your paints, you can create cute cups with sweet messages that your loved ones will use for years to come.
- Make your own sugar scrub with only a few simple ingredients including 2 cups of sugar, some almond or olive oil, some food coloring if you’d like to make it festive and then some essential oils to add the smell of peppermint or lavender or rosemary. This homemade scrub exfoliates the skin nicely and smells amazing!
- Make your own flavored kinds of butter using unsalted butter mixed with honey or jam or for a more savory gift, try garlic or chives. This butter will be better than anything they’ve ever tried and if you pack it nicely, it will be such a lovely gift to receive.
- How about some ornaments for their collection? Take old scrabble pieces and glue them together to spell out names or festive words. Glue a looped ribbon on the back and voila they have some new, handmade decorations to hang on their Christmas tree each year.
Christmas is all about giving, so eliminate some of the shopping stress this year and put in the work to give out some beautifully handmade, inexpensive gifts. From everyone at Sparta Consulting Group, we wish you the happiest of holidays. Enjoy!
