I love making homemade, gifts to give. I have already made two batches of Brown Sugar Body Scrub. I used Brown Sugar, Grapeseed oil, Jojoba oil, a little olive oil and I added a TBSP of honey as it is good for dry skin. You mix this all up and put it in jars (I used canning jars) and I make sure that the sugar is very moist. I also added frankincense and myrrh essential oils in honor of the season. This made it smell heavenly. I also made a batch and used lemon and orange flavoring. This makes your skin feel like a million bucks. You just use it as a body scrub when you are in the shower.
Also, I found this recipe on Pinterest for hand cream. Use 16 oz. baby lotion, 8 oz. of vaseline and 8 oz. of vitamin E cream. Mix this up, add essential oils (lavendar would be good) and use as a hand cream. You can put this into pretty little jars and this makes a wonderful gift as well.
