There’s nothing more Christmas than gingerbread. And these gingerbread bath bombs bring all of that back in one burst of fizzy fun. Perfect stocking stuffer for kids, adults, or anyone that loves a good fizz.
Gingerbread Bath Bombs
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we get all sorts of excited to make handmade gifts like DIY bath bombs and other little items for stocking stuffers. The kids love them and they’re really just a gift-of-relaxation for adults, too. One of my favorite that I plan to gift this year is these cute gingerbread man bath bombs.
They’re super simple, but I can let the kids decorate these gingerbread bath bombs to make personalized gifts for grandparents, teachers, you name it. Heck, I kind of expect to get a little bag of some decorated for me! LOL! If you’re ready to make some cute gingerbread man bath bombs, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Gingerbread Man Bath Bombs
- To put these in a stocking, I wouldn’t drop them in directly. They might break up and be a bit beat-up by the time your giftee gets them in hand. So, wrap them in a little baggie or put them in a jar. How cute would a mini-mason jar be filled with these little gingerbread man bath bombs?!
- Be sure to let your giftee know to store them in an airtight container until they’re ready to use them. They’ll be a little less fizzy over time if they’re not in an airtight container.
- I would recommend decorating these gingerbread bath bombs with sprinkles like you would use for baking. You don’t want anything odd in the bathtub with you.
How Do I Make this KEWORD?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a Christmas crafts playlist on YouTube, here is our gingerbread bath bombs video tutorial.
- 1 cup baking soda
- 1/2 cup citric acid
- 1/4 cup cream of tartar
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon polysorbate 80
- 1-2 drops of gingerbread scented oil
- 1 tablespoon of brown mica powder
- Spray bottle of rubbing alcohol
- 1 large mixing bowl
- Gingerbread Boy or Round Bath Bomb Molds
- In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
- Add coconut oil along and polysorbate 80. Polysorbate 80 will make your bath bomb bubble profusely and keep the mica powder from staining the bath tub.
- Add gingerbread scented oil (this is the best part).
- Mix with your hands. You will know when the bath bomb mixture is perfect when it feels like wet sand and you can press a ball of it together in your hands and it stays together.
- Add your mica powder and glitter then incorporate them into your mixture. Add about a tablespoon to start and add about 1 teaspoon and mix in and repeat until you get the color and glitter level you desire. **Please note** You may need to use your spray bottle of rubbing alcohol to spritz your mixture if it gets too dry as you are adding it to your mold.
- Press the bath bomb mixture into your mold and continue until all cavities are filled. Store in an airtight container until ready for use.
