Gingerbread Sugar Scrub – DIY Holiday Gift!

I really love giving gifts during the holidays. I like picking them out, I like seeing the recipient open them up, and I like to see the joy on their face as they check their new gift out. Typically I buy all of my Christmas gifts because I am not the craftiest person around. However, this Gingerbread Sugar Scrub is not only easy to assemble (notice I didn’t say anything about crafting!!), smells great and it makes your skin smell and feel great too!

Gingerbread Sugar Scrub


  • 1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Oil

  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp All Spice
  • Mason Jar with lid <–I would buy those. They are pretty and you can make several gifts.


  1. In a large bowl, add both sugars and coconut oil and mix well.
  2. Add in the vanilla and spices. Mix well for 2 minutes.
  3. Scoop into your Mason Jar and seal with a lid.

This would make a great, inexpensive gift idea for your child’s teachers. Especially the gym, music, art and library teachers that sometimes get left out by students at the holidays. I know it’s not intentional. For us, we’ve not always done something for those teachers, not because we don’t want to, but because it’s just too expensive. However, something like this is very inexpensive and your child will be so proud to give their teacher something they made! And this is definitely something your kids can help you make! Just use a slightly deeper bowl. I don’t know about your kids, but mine tend to spill when they are mixing by hand…more so when they were younger, but…

Who would you give this Gingerbread Sugar Scrub too?

Merry Christmas!
