It’s time to start thinking about your gift-giving list for Christmas. Whether you have tons of money to spend this season or don’t plan on spending much, I suggest going the DIY route. In my experiences, personalized DIY gifts have always been well-received and are a great way to save a little money. Plus, it’s fun to get the kiddos involved.
Consider this recipe for Vanilla Body Scrub (below) from Nielsen-Massey Vanillas as the perfect gift for friends, sisters, daughters teachers, or anyone who deserves a bit of pampering this holiday season. Fragrant Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Sugar gently exfoliates while olive oil moisturizes, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and rejuvenated.
Or, consider gifting a bottle of Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Sugar with a cute bow made of twine. Not only is this sugar fantastic in recipes, it’s great in tea and can even be used to rim a cocktail glass for your holiday parties.
