Stocking Stuffers For Guys

This post was originally part of Kojo Design's Gifts for Guys series. 

 

I la-la-la-LOVE this Gifts for Guys series!

Guys are totally neglected in the crafting world, don't you think?

Don't tell my husband I said so, but I think that every guy secretly wants to be pampered.  I know mine does.  Especially when he's sick.  Or tired.  Or had a long day.

I have a theory that if my husband could go to a spa completely anonymously, he would do it!  Let's face it, he travels for work all week long, so he probably deserves it!  But this gift brings the spa straight to his stocking!

This year, I whipped up a couple of {simple} stocking stuffers to help pamper my man!  I created some homemade lip balm, body scrub, and foot scrub to stuff in his stocking.  He may pretend to be underwhelmed, but I happen to know that he will secretly indulge in these little goodies!

My hubby will literally turn around and drive back home if he is missing his chapstick!

So I knew he would appreciate my homemade lip balm.

This is SO easy!  To make your own lip balm...

1.  Gather your supplies.  You will need beeswax, organic shea butter, safflower oil, and your favorite organic oils.

2.  I grated 1/4 c. beeswax to start.  I combined it with 3 T. organic shea butter and 2 T. safflower oil in a plastic bowl.

3.  Then I started microwaving this until the beeswax melted completely, and the liquid was completely clear.  Then I added 2 tsp. of peppermint essential oil and just a touch of food coloring.  (I wanted this to be peppermint-like!)

4.  As quickly as possible, I poured the liquid into the chapstick containers I found at my organic grocery store.  I refrigerated this to be sure it hardened up, and it turned out beautifully.

Who knew it was this easy to make lip balm?!  I will be making more very soon!

I love Google.  I simply googled "brown sugar body scrub" and selected my favorite recipe!  Again, this was so simple to make with just a few simple ingredients!

I used a recipe for peppermint foot scrub that I found at The Idea Room.  Perfect for Christmas!
