DIY Teacher's Gifts c/o World Market & Trader Joe's

When Cam was an infant, a mama on the east coast passed along an easy & incredibly satisfying recipe for a sugar scrub. This year I couldn't quite figure out what to make for our pre-school teachers. Then, in a trip to World Market it hit me : A bath basket! Super easy, cute & Cam could help. 


  • Mason/Ball Jar
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Grapeseed Oil
  • 15 drops of essential oil (I like citrus scents) 

At World Market, I purchased these adorable rustic wire baskets. I added a delicious Castebel soap & an exfoliator mitt in addition to our scrub. 


Cam really enjoyed helping & I really enjoyed that it wasn't a very messy project! We measured out the sugar, the oil, some essential oils and voila! There was a sugar spill, which we cleaned up with a painter's brush! Then, all got package with tissue paper on the bottom and a bow on the top. This is a fun gift to make & a an even more fun gift to receive!
