Glittered Elastic Hair Ties and Bracelets

These glittered hair ties from Arena at The Nerd’s Wife are so cute and would make great gifts for gals who likes a little glitz. Anthro’s price of five hair ties for $12 may not seem too painful, but it hardly compares to 28 for less than $8! Plus, they are SO easy to make. Arena literally just cut glitter stretch elastic fabric into strips and tied a loop at the end. I love the idea of tossing some into stockings or attaching them to presents so they double as gift tags.

Accordion Strands Ribbon Necklace

Most ladies can’t resist a new bauble, and in my book, the bigger the better! I love a statement piece like this accordion strand necklace made by Aubree from Yellow Blackbird. When Aubree first laid eyes on the inspiration necklace from Anthropologie, she immediately knew she could make her own. Sure, it’s not made from real silk, but it’s also not $278! Aubree made her necklace for only a few bucks using grosgrain ribbon, and the effect is just as lovely.

Give the Gift of Relaxation with DIY Bath Bombs

There’s nothing that relaxes me quite like a nice soak in the tub. Throw in a bath bomb, and I’m in heaven! However, like Angela from Bare Root, I have a hard time stomaching $5 and up for one of those luscious bombs. That’s one pricey bath! Angela discovered that she could turn ingredients from around the house into her own bath bombs. So how about giving the gift of pampering and relaxation this holiday season?
