Peppermint Bath Salt Ornament Gift Idea

Sharing is caring!

I’ve got 2 beautiful, sweet daughters.  One is 10 and the other is 13 and they LOVE to give gifts to their friends!  Anyone else have girls in that age range?  I’m not sure if it’s just a phase or it’s their personalities… but any excuse to give a gift and they are on it.  So needless to say they’ve been planning out Christmas gifts for their friends for weeks.  So I suggested they make some cute Peppermint Bath Salt Ornaments for their friends.  These are super cute… I’d love one… plus they take only a few minutes to make.

Using a funnel made filling the ornaments super easy.  I added 2-3 tablespoons of the red and then 2-3 tablespoons of the white… going back and forth until it was filled.

  4. Love this idea ! It’s very cute and perfect for gift-giving. I am surprised to see a plastic ornament used however;
    Essential oils should always be used in glass containers… Never plastic!!

  5. Hi Maryann, this is such a clever idea! I love having simple and thoughtful gifts like this on hand for the holidays, and they would make perfect gift toppers.

    I’d love if you shared this project at our link party, Create • Share • Inspire, tonight through Sunday. I hope to see you there!


  6. Love the idea! I just downloaded some peppermint gift tags for free. I actually forgot where I got them, but You could google free peppermint gift tags. I printed mine out in the smallest mode I could because my gift box was very small. It gets kind of expensive for the kids to give ALL their friends a gift. My idea was to make some peppermint earrings and bracelets with paper beads. I was also able to find a small peppermint gift box template to print out. So, parents, take heart, there is still a way to treat friends and have fun, too!
    Thanks for sharing this! It will go so good with some of the peppermint themed things we have so far!
