This is a quick, easy, inexpensive, and adorable snow globe Christmas bath salts gift idea. Make a batch for that someone who could use a little pampering.
An Inexpensive But Thoughtful Gift Idea
During the holidays, we never pamper ourselves. We’re running around trying to make everything “just so” for the kids, grab everything on our gift list, and whip up a tasty, treat-filled holiday menu.
And it can be exhausting.
And I can be forgetful. Like, “Oops, I forgot three people on my gift list!” forgetful…
If that’s you or you just need a simple gift idea to pamper a teacher or neighbor, these Christmas bath salts will fit the bill nicely. They’re adorable to gift and a blessing to receive.
