27 Holiday Gift Ideas for everyone

Whether you’re looking for a last minute gift idea and all the stores are closed, or you’re like me and the Holidays simply equal DIY season, this list has got you covered.

For those of you who don’t like to DIY all of your presents, I’ve also included a few online options to shop from some of my favorite brands! I love these so much I applied for their affiliate program (if they have one) and I do receive a small comission when you buy via the link on my website. If you buy something from them you’d also be giving me a small Christmas present! 🙂

Around this time last year, as part of my blogging New year’s resolutions, I pledged that I would publish a new blog post every week in the new year. I’m proud to say (and a little surprised, I have to admit) that I’ve published a new post every single week this last year.

That’s also how I ended up with quite an archive full of DIY tutorials. And there’s no time like the present to dig in and look for inspiration for the best gift ideas for the Holiday season!

18. Bath bombs with lemon juice

The science is simple: Combine baking soda, citric acid and water and you get a wonderful fizzing reaction in your bath tub. You’d be surprised that you not only have baking soda in your kitchen, but citric acid as well. Lemon juice is a natural source. They won’t fizz as much as when you use concentrated citric acid, but it’s still a very fun activity!
