Not all food gifts have to be edible, right? (Well, you could eat this one if you want to…wouldn’t hurt anything…although it might give you quite a sugar rush.)
When I saw the idea for this Sweet-n-Spicy Brown Sugar Scrub on the Domino Sugar website, I loved how simple it was and thought it would be fun to make some up. What a unique homemade gift idea!
I used coconut oil instead of the almond oil it called for (apparently my small town doesn’t carry almond oil anywhere…or maybe I just don’t know the right places to look?)
After putting it in a jar and tying on some cinnamon sticks (which have nothing to do with the scrub…but look oh so cute)…I rubbed some of the scrub on my hands just to test it out.
Do I have to give this away?
Okay, maybe I should just mix up another batch. Or maybe try making another variety of the sugar scrubs.
I had a blast looking through the gift ideas on the Domino Sugar website. But as you know…looking at pictures of food always makes me happy. :)
Okay, I think after typing this…my hands are in need of another scrub treatment.
Do you think the recipient of this gift will mind if the jar is almost empty when she receives it?
Yeah…I better go mix up another batch.
Special thanks to the folks at Domino Sugar for providing me with a $20 gift card to purchase ingredients to create their wonderful gift ideas! I think I’m going to mix up some Holiday Cookie Rolls next. Aren’t they cute?!
