I’m not all that crafty. I love small projects. I like simple and quick. I get too impatient for projects that are too involved. That’s why I was just thrilled when Domino Sugar contacted me about making something from the homemade gift section of their site.
I hadn’t given much thought to using sugar in a gift unless it was for baking something yummy! So, it seemed only natural to give their homemade gifts a try. Domino Sugar was kind enough to send me a $20 gift card to help with the cost, as well!- now who could turn that down?!
After checking out their gift ideas, I instantly knew I wanted to try their Sugar Scrubs!
These easy-to-make sugar scrubs can have all the glamour of a luxurious spa gift. Add a glittery ribbon, a scented candle and a soothing music CD as the perfect complements to your gift basket. It’s just the right way to relax after a long day of baking!

Who couldn’t use a little pampering around the holidays? Let me tell you, my 13 year old daughter and I both tried this, she was pretty skeptical about it and has very dry hands……she LOVED it! It made our hands very soft and silky!! – now she wants a jar of it! LOL
