One of the best gifts you can give this holiday season is the gift of relaxation.

We're taking you and those on your shopping list for a little spa trip. A DIY spa gift is a major win-win: You save money, and your recipient gets some well-deserved pampering. Check out these four ideas for DIY spa products for the hard-working and ever-so-deserving people in your life.

Lip scrubs


Raid the kitchen cupboards for the ingredients you need to make these scrumptious sugar lip scrubs from Brit + Co.

Scented candles


Make Brit + Co.’s lavender-lemon scented candles in under 15 minutes flat. A perfect bath-side treat for long, hot soaks this season.

Felted soap


Tie a personalized tag around a bar of custom-felted soap for a sweet-smelling stocking stuffer. Thistlewood Farms has the tutorial.

Soap on a rope


This project from A Beautiful Mess elevates the soap on a rope concept from kitschy to downright chic.
