I can guarantee that if you are reading this and haven’t been able to buy gifts for anyone you are not alone! If you are one of the many that have been struggling to buy gifts for family or friends, look no further. Christmas Hampers are the perfect solution to presenting small gifts made by hand and are great simple gestures. To start off my basket of tricks I made some mini gingerbread men using an easy online recipe. I then wrapped these up into little bags to give them a festive feel and I used silver ribbon to finish off the little gift.
The next set of presents I made were some soaps created from online soap bases that are vegetarian and free from animal cruelty. I layered up different colours in silicon mould and cut the block up once it had set. I wrapped these up in some white spotty wrapping film to protect them.
The next is one of my favourite gifts but also the smallest. The hot chocolate test tubes are made up of a mixture of cinnamon, hot chocolate, sugar and sprinkles. Leave a tag on the side of them informing the recipient on how much milk or water to add and voila!
Last but not least, I made another body product that has a wonderful aroma and texture. These cinnamon body scrubs are made up of sugar, oil and cinnamon. They are perfect little DIY gifts that can be slipped into anyones hamper of present selection.
