A Gift From Bungalov

For Christmas I put together special gift sets.  I would of shared sooner but I finally passed out my
last one.  Didn't want to spoil the surprise!

I wanted to do something thoughtful and useful.  Also with a vintage, handmade twist.
Bath salt in a mason jar.

This was so easy to put together and what a great way to remind that special person to relax and take some time for themselves.  Also a great bathroom decor piece!

All you have to do is this:

1.  Get yourself a mason jar.  I used a vintage blue Atlas jar.  You could even easily go buy one from Michaels and buy it dirt cheap using their famous 40% off coupons.

2.  Fill it with your favorite bath salt.  I used lavender since that is my all time fav smell.

3.  Make a tag and personalize.  Mine were made right on the computer and cut out using my tag puncher.  Tied it on with some jute twine.

I was so happy how these turned out that I'm even thinking about putting more together to sell at the flea market.  What do you think?  Would you buy one?

I also gave a set of "twine on a stick".  These have been such a hit in my shop.  So many uses for twine and always adds a fun touch to gift wrapping.
So, next time you need to give a gift think about doing something from "yourself" that you put together.  Skip getting something store bought.  I promise you it will be much more meaningful to that special person.
