Results for - HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS GIFTS?

1,241 voters participated in this survey

In an effort to save money on Christmas gifts (& indulge my creativity), I thought it might be nice to create homemade spa treatments & give them to friends---salt or sugar scrubs, bath fizzies (bath bombs), lotion bars, foaming bath oil, lip treatments, etc. However I’ve never attempted a homemade gift of this nature before so I’m a bit unsure how it will be received, & am wondering what people think of homemade spa items as gifts.
