I’m very fortunate in the sense that pretty much all of my friends and family love to spoil themselves as much as I do. It makes shopping for them an absolute breeze! Wondering what my secret is? I just spend a single afternoon making up a bunch of DIY spa-themed gifts such as this lavender body wash and just as easy as that I already have the perfect gift idea for birthdays, Mother’s Day, or any time of the year really.

Not only does this method save a ton of cash, but the gifts are always genuinely appreciated because of how thoughtful they are.
