    Wow – what cute ideas – and easy too (even for someone like me!!). I love those tic tac toe rocks…I think I might have a go at making those!

      Me too! Here is recipe –

      Ingredients
      1/2 cup light brown sugar
      1/2 cup granulated sugar
      1/2 cup coconut oil
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

      Instructions
      Combine sugars and coconut oil in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with a paddle attachment until a fluffy paste starts to form.
      Scrape down sides and add in vanilla and spices. Beat on low until spices work their way into the mix, increase to medium speed and beat for 30 seconds or until light and fluffy.
      Transfer to a jar and seal with a lid. Dress it up if giving as a gift. Use within a month with hot water and gently exfoliate skin.
      Recipe Notes
      The original recipe did not call for fragrance oil, just the spices, but you can add the fragrance oil for an even stronger scent.

    I made the beard balm and it was so much better than what I purchased at the store. My beard and mustache look awesome. I think I will try the ginger scrub next. These are great gift ideas thanks for sharing. Like you site.

      Thank you. I am so glad you liked the beard balm. I have made it too and it was liked by the men I gave it to as a gift.
