Easy DIY Gifts

Attention procrastinators and non-crafty types! I’m here to tell you that homemade gifts don’t have to be complicated and endless time-consuming. Even people who don’t consider themselves the least bit crafty can pull off these easy DIY wins!  

You may already have the ingredients in your cupboard for some of these gifts like sugar scrubs or spiced nuts. Others require a few ingredients easily picked up at a natural food store or online. We’re not talking weeks of preparation, we’re talking an hour at most.

Sometimes the most special gift of all is something that is homemade. You can do it!
