I'm so proud of myself for finishing some of these gifts this early! I'm also kind of sad that I don't have much more to make, though.
But, here's the bulk of my Christmas this year...
My sisters, mom-in-law, and grandma-in-law are getting these lotion/soap sets:
Label reads: "Melonia a la Jordan et Janie" (we just made it up, lol) a fantastique lotion experience
Label reads: "Le Pink Fruit de Grapes" an exotic excursion into fruity euphoria (hahah)
For my dad-in-law who is about all things Blu-Ray and HD--
For my little brother-in-law, gory soap (he's also getting some DVDs) --
It looks more red in real life.
For his aunts and uncles I made soap. I put them in little buckets that they can just place on their vanities--
Scents (from left to right): Coconut&Plumeria (with blueberry seeds), Tropical Linen; Grape (w/ blueberry seeds), Pink Grapefruit, Seaside; Vanilla-Blueberry (smells amazing!), Leafy Linen, Ocean.
Here they are, all wrapped up and ready to go--
And, my solution to gift cards: more buckets, lol. My 10-year-old niece reads a few books a WEEK, so my husband and I thought a Border's gift card was in order.
And my 8-year-old nephew is just...weird (and adorably hilarious)! His favorite store is Walgreens (?!?) -- seriously!
And there you have it. I think the only things I have left to make are soaps for my mom (I haven't decided yet), and a set of handmade cards for my husbands other grandma. I'll post pics of those when I get them, though.
