Relaxing Gifts…

IMG_0188.JPGSometimes giving a gift means giving one to yourself!

I think self-care is so important especially this crazy but beautiful time of year. I love to support the makers. You know sweet and small companies who make things with their hands. Like me. I love to whip up many beautiful things.

Rosie’s Handmade Jax makes an Aromatherapy Hot Pack that may be used hot or cold for when you need to relax and chill out and say “Goodbye to the bad days.”

Natural pain relief made by a MOMMY  (FYI Rosie is her little daughter) in Jacksonville Florida!  Made with 100% premium cotton and well made at that!

Lovely lavender takes the cares and stress away.

Do you or anyone on your list get migraine headaches or simply exhausted from working at the computer all day? Rosie’s HandmadeJax has a pack for your eyes too.

I’ve so loved these two handmade relaxing & calming beauties the past few weeks and simply had to share! You just might fall in love with them too! Or to give as a gift this holiday season.

You don’t have to spend a fortune on gifts! It truly is the thought you put into  that gift counts.

Come back to my blog for more gifts to make the people in your life smile!

 

 

 

 

 

SOAP …glorious soap!

It’s so dope! It puts me on a high and when it is well made and with the right stuff it super hydrates and makes your skin feel and LOOK amazing.

It also is an EXPERIENCE. I think it is the perfect gift. Give a stack of them or by the bar.These are a creation by a woman business owner of course.

You may find her at http://www.bellalinabath.com and on Facebook.
