Today I’m sharing another easy gift you can make that’s both simple and cheap. All you need is brown sugar, baby oil, essential oil, jelly jars and honey. I didn’t use the regular run-of-the-mill honey either – I decided to use Don Victor because I wanted a special ingredient that would make the final product special as well. I love how in each jar of Don Victor honey, there is a honeycomb in there as well.

For me, It just adds a natural aspect to the whole honey experience. I guess I’m just not used to stuff like this!

It has a rich, honey taste as well! But making something edible will be another day – today is all about making a cool DIY scrub.

Here’s what you need:

  • Don Victor Honey
  • Baby Oil
  • Brown Sugar
  • Essential oil fragrance of your choice
  • Jelly jars

In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of baby oil, 1/2 cup of brown sugar & 1/4 cup of Don Victor honey. Add in 1 teaspoon of essential oil fragrance and mix well. Spoon it into the small jam jars and seal them.

Last but not least, seal up the jar and tie on one of my printable labels on some card stock. The recipe above will yield about 3 small jars.

Don’t expect to find this awesome stuff where all the other honey products are located. I found this particular brand tucked away among all the hispanic foods at Walmart.

They even have other products like whipped honey, whipped honey with caramel and whipped honey with cocoa!

Creating unique little Christmas gifts for less from the Dollar General

This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

A really easy and convenient little store in our neighborhood has always been the local Dollar General. I LOVE going there simply because its just a few streets away from my house and I could easily walk there and back. Now that Halloween is over, the holidays are pretty much on the horizon.

We’re looking at so many things we’re gonna need in the no-so-distant future, including some home revamping in anticipation of our new baby in March. That being said, we need to pinch our pennies this season, and it can be tough to do when there’s always a small gift you feel obligated to give, like for your kid’s teachers, co-workers.. etc..

I’ve come up with a really cheap way to give a great looking, creative gift for less, and you can get everything you need at your local Dollar General. I decided to make some peppermint hot cocoa kits that come complete with the mug, homemade cocoa mix, marshmallows, candy cane & printable instructions.

Download your free copy here!

To make your cocoa mix, combine:

  • 1 1/4 cups of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of cocoa
  • 1 tbsp salt

Once you have the mix made, spoon some into the little plastic baggies and tie with some festive shinny red & green ribbon. Make another little baggie of marshmallows as well and tie it up with the same green & red ribbon.

Then I began to combine everything together in the cup – the mix, the marshmallows, the candy cane & last but not least the printable instructions for how to prepare the hot cocoa. It works best if you print on 5×7 cardstock, but you can also print it on regular 81/2 x 11 paper and cut it with scissors..

I used a little ornament just to make it fancy – and it was ready to put in the giftbag!

I used some fuzzy paper at the bottom of the bag in order to keep the mug protected. It nestled in nicely, and I finished it with some festive tissue paper. Total for everything cost me a whopping $7!!

  • Mug – $1.50
  • Decorative bag – $.50
  • Tissue paper – $1.00
  • Ornament – $1.00
  • Ribbon (2) – $1.00
  • Candy canes (3) – $1.00
  • Sandwich baggies – $1.00

I already had plenty of cocoa, sugar, salt & marshmallows at home so I didn’t have to purchase that. Even still, it wouldn’t cost a whole lot to include them. I can’t wait to make more of these delicious little gifts! Find more Dollar General Holiday Inspiration here!
