Frugal Homemade Gift Guide: Skin Care Edition

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

These are favorites around here. Both Deanna and I give these things as gifts and people love them.

I deliberately formulated most of these to use the same ingredients so I don’t have to buy a bunch of different exotic oils and butters, just the basics.

Lotion Bars


Lip Balm




Peppermint Foot Slather

Pick a couple of these and put them in a basket with a soft cloth and a candle for a spa gift. These are fun to get together with a friend and make up a bunch.

Daisy, I love this post (as well as all the others too!). And I LOVE that fact that you also like to do ‘the basics’. I started out with some of those ‘exotics’ and found myself just sticking with the basics. Lovely stuff. I’ve made my life so simple by just using a few products for twenty different things! Thanks for all you do……

I forgot to say….I LOVE that highy technical term…..’slather’……lol Says it all. Who WOULDN’T want yummy Foot Slather????

BarbaraM–Thank you so much. I was overwhelmed at first by all the different choices of oils and butters, then realized I could substitute all the different ones for the same ones. It was a very financially helpful move! Slather on!
