I made this scrub for myself and I loved it! I made it for a friend and haven't heard back if she liked it or not!
Here's the recipe:
1/2 cup coffee grounds from a freshly brewed pot
1 cup turbinado sugar
1/4 cup olive oil
10 drops peppermint EO
1 tbsp vanilla extract (I don't think this really adds anything, so I leave it out)
Mix all together in a bowl and that's it!!
The instructions: Start with your feet and work up, paying special attention to areas such as knees and elbows. This has oil, so you may want to use it on a non-stick surface (like a rubber bath mat). Wash off with your favorite soap and you will be awake and soft all day long!
This smells AWESOME from the vanilla and makes you SOOO soft!
I was thinking of making this scrub and either making (prob not) or buying some sort of body wash and putting those together with one of those bath poufs (which I suppose you could also make). That seems like a nice gift, right? I was going to do that and add a gift cert for a massage (I know a woman who does them in her home for cheap!!) for my dcp.
|Oh yea, I also made homemade kahlua and put it in mason jars|
mercyn, line the baskets for the guys with bandanas. Most guys will use them for something. For the women you can line with a new kitchen towel, a pretty piece of cloth, a guest towel, a linen napkin.
Pick anything the recipient likes, BBQ -bbq sauce, a brush, maybe a cookbook if you find a cheap one, spices, utensils, an apron, heatproof mitt, etc. Does he love bikes? Go to your local bike store and tell them you need a few thngs for the cyclist. Tell them your $ limit. Throw in energy bars. Any hobby can make a basket! You don't even have to know the person well and you come off looking like a pro.
