On the second day of Christmas my true love (or neighbor, mom, sister, brother, dad, friend, frienemy, teacher, student, grandma) gave to me, a razor and some awesome shaving cream.
Bare with me.
I know that sounds weird...
I think it is actually a great gift idea for someone.
It is perfect for a man or a woman.
(I'm actually making this for myself. I have the driest legs, and that ain't sexy.)
Women need some legit healthy shaving cream for their legs (and other areas), and men need it for their face.
Plus, you can pare it with some super cute items and a fun saying.
You know those fun sayings with candy bar names and stuff?
Like "Hoping your Christmas is filled with Joy!" and then you have an Almond Joy bar with it.
(I would just like to state for the record that I think Almond Joys are disgusting.)
You can do that with this gift!
I decided on "Praying your Holidays are nice and SMOOTH."
So, here is the recipe for the shaving cream.
I just finished making it, and it was super easy.
All you have to do is put it a cute jar and pair it with something adorable (or manly.)
Shaving Cream Recipe:
- 1/3 cup of Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup of Coconut oil
- 1/8 cup of Jojoba or Almond oil (I used Almond)
- 6 drops of two of your favorite oils.
(I did 12 drops of Lavender.)
(For a man, I would suggest, 6 drops of Peppermint and 6 drops of Idaho Blue Spruce)
(The fun part is that you get to choose the scent you like!)
Shaving Cream Directions:
- Melt the Coconut oil and the Shea Butter over some low heat on the stove until it is clear.
- Add the Almond or Jojoba oil to the mixture
- Add the essential oils
- Stir around
- Put in the fridge until it becomes cool and hard
- Once it is cool and hard, take it out and mush it up with a spoon
- Then get out your mixture and whip it up until it looks like a thick whipped cream
- Use a spoon to put it in a cute container like one of the ones below!
Ok, now the best part is pairing it with something else to make the gift extra cute.
If you are giving this to a man, I would suggest a nice razor and a shaving brush.
Here are some awesome ones that I found on Amazon that come with really good reviews.
If you are giving this to a woman, why not pair it with a razor and some of Young Living's awesome lotion? If you want to just get it all on Amazon try out some of the lotions below.
(I love ordering everything through Amazon. It is the easiest way to do Christmas shopping.)
Package everything up in some cute clear cellophane bag, tie with some cute ribbon and finish it off with a cute saying on a tag!
You are done.
And you are creative.
You are not giving the same ol boring Christmas gift this year.
