These natural DIY stocking stuffers are sure to delight any beauty lover on your list!
Stocking stuffers can be a lot of fun to buy. But after you’ve bought the obligatory candy and usual stocking stuffer suspects, sometimes it’s just a little more personal to add the simplicity of a handmade gift to your stockings.
And since you can fit so many little items in a Christmas stocking, you can easily combine both store-bought and handmade gifts. So I compiled some of the prettiest DIY natural beauty stocking stuffers I could find. All of these recipes are all-natural and toxin-free, so you can be assured that you’re giving your loved one a safe handmade gift.
If you’re not a seasoned DIY beauty artisan, don’t worry, most of the suggested DIY’s are fairly simple to make. Additionally, even if you’re pressed for time, you should be able to DIY more than one of these pretty stocking stuffers in an afternoon.
However, if you truly don’t have the time or the inclination to make your own stocking stuffers, but still want to give your friends or family some of the ideas in this post, I’ve also included non-toxic store-bought versions of each DIY on this list.
So pour yourself a glass of eggnog (with or without the rum) and let’s get started!

4. Pink Lemonade Tub Tea
This is one of my original DIY bath and body recipes. This DIY pink lemonade tub tea is incredibly simple to make and smells like summer! It’s also full of ingredients that are great for your skin.

However, you can always choose to include the muslin bags with your gift, and instead display the pink lemonade tub tea mixture in a mason jar. That way, your recipient can admire the pretty hibiscus petals and dried lemon peel included in this recipe.
