DIY Gift Guide
With the holiday's right around the corner, I figured it would be the perfect time to share my DIY gift for my girlfriend's this year. If you know me personally, ***SPOILER ALERT*** you know I hate surprises and secrets, so sorry if you are one of my besties reading this because now you know what you're getting! Hah! I have decided to make "Girl's Night In Emergency Kits" because you all know we need a little "me" time every now and then. I'm going to break down with photos how to put it together, what products I used, how to use them, where to get them and how much they cost. As we get a little bit older, and see certain friends less because hey, that's life..I figured we really don't need to be spending more than $30 on each other..heck..less than that if we can make it work! Times are a changing and we're trying to save for our futures..so here's my budget friendly gift idea! Enjoy!
Hair Masque: Sally Beauty Supply $1.69.
Hair Masque: Wet hair. Towel dry so it is still wet/damp. Apply masque all over hair favoring ends. Comb through with a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute masque. Leave on while using other products in this basket then wash out :)
Headband: Target (On sale) $3.35 for 5. Divide that by 5 and it's .67 cents per person..not bad!
Headband: To keep hair out of your face while using your face mask!
Face Scrub: Target $3.89
Face Scrub: how to use- wet face with warm water and use a pea sized amount of scrub in a circular motion all over face avoiding eyes for about 30 seconds. Rinse with warm water.
Pore Cleansing Strips: Target $6.09 for 14. Divide that by 4 people (and I'll keep two for myself..hehe) Roughly $1.50 per person for 3 strips. (I'm no math wizard..so I may have screwed that up somewhere but who's counting?)
Deep Pore Cleansing Strips: Wet nose and inner cheeks with warm water. With dry hands, peel backing from strip and apply to nose making sure there are no air bubbles. Leave on till fully dry, then peel off slowly. Remove any excess product with warm water.
Lip Balm: Target $2.99.
Lip Balm: Leaves lips silky smooth after your mask :)
Face Mask: Sally Beauty Supply $4.99. This is my favorite face mask of all time!! Works wonders and makes your skin feel amazing for under 5 bucks! Can't beat it.
Face Mask: Apply a generous amount all over face and neck avoiding eyes, eyebrows and lips. Let dry completely then rinse with warm water.
Hand/Face Towel: Target $3.49 for 2. $1.75 per person.
Towel: To dry your pretty face!
Basket to put it all in: Target $3.00 at the dollar spot.
I also bought some cello bags to wrap it all in at Deals, our local dollar store for 2 for $1.00. .50 per person!
The grand total for this totally adorable DIY gift that I would for sure love to get is a whopping $20.98 per person! Totally killed the budget game on this one. This is a great office gift swap idea or white elephant gift idea. When it was all said and done before wrapping in cello bags with bows/cards it looks like this...
Now go fourth and make great DIY gifts!! :)
