If you wanted to save a little extra money, you could always have a go at making something yourself. Here are a couple DIY ideas you can try:
Homemade body scrub
This coconut oil and sugar body scrub is a simple recipe to follow. You only need two ingredients, and a glass jar to store it in. To make, combine the coconut oil and sugar in a bowl before scooping it into your jar. If you don’t have a spare glass jar to hand, pick one up from The Range for £1.79. You could even make a personalised label for your jar if wanted to.
Make a photobook
This idea is both affordable and easy. Get your favourite family photos professionally printed from Free Prints - at no cost (not including delivery). Then, all you’ll need is a photo album or scrapbook to put your pictures in. Get your scrapbook from The Works, like this one for £6.99.
