Bath bombs are easy to make and are always well received as gifts. They’re made of ingredients that will make your bath water fizz and smell delicious by releasing essential oils. These Christmas Tree bath bombs can be made in just a few minutes even by beginners. They’re also the perfect size for putting into organza bags to give as gifts over the holidays.

INGREDIENTS: 
1 C. baking soda
1/2 C. citric acid

A Homemade Christmas Gift: Curried Lentil Soup in Jars

After seeing the Curried Lentil Soup in jars my friend Leslie over at DefinitelyNotMartha.com put together for gifts, I knew I had to do it too! I think they’re perfect for spur of the moment gifts as well as a good idea for teacher gifts. I especially like the fact that the recipient only has to add water and the contents of the jar to enjoy!

I made up these quick labels for the jars if you’d like to use them when you put together the jars.
