I love the crochet wash cloth idea i wonder if anyone I know takes baths. ONly my youngest two kids do and I know my sister's kids shower

I was considering doing the scented coasters and maybe the foot scrub
what about aromatherapy bath gels/soaps and a fun washcloth?

You could add to that a small face towel that's embellished with ribbon. That'd be cheap

floral pens in flower pots

You take a pen, and a fake flower, and use floral tape to wrap the stem to the pen. Then you glue a block of styrofoam or floral foam to the bottom of a flower pot, and glue a little dried Spanish moss to hide it. Stick the pens into the foam block, and you have a flower pot full of pretty pens that are harder to for people borrow and lose.

I got one as a teacher gift, and have made them now or anyone with a desk...homeschoolers, moms, anyone who can't find a pen when they need it.

that's a really cool gift! Plus it might deter my husband from walking off with my floral pens (although he'll tell you I'm far more guilty of that).

ooh another great website for essential oil mixtures. I love the one for honey cleanser, adn this lip balm one calls for a carrier oil the other one called for honey, I may try both.
