Think of all the stuff that’s hidden in the Amazon back room…and be afraid, be very afraid.
First up is this cute little door buster that just screams – well, I’m not quite sure what it screams – but you will be the one everyone remembers. go team?
Arrr, I thought this was a pirate costume. One similar is termed unisex. please, don’t…
Okay, I’ve gotta stop now. I wanted to have an equal number of ideas for guys, but
this was the only item that did not offer the full monty! I think my retinas have been permanently seared…click at your own risk…

My latest DIY Project is gel bead air fresheners. I bought a couple and was so pleased I naturally had to try my hand at making them. Especially since I had dye and beads available. I must say that I was very disappointed in my search for common Fall scents like pumpkin pie – nothing at Sam’s Club or Target and Michael’s selection was limited and expensive ($7.99 for 5 oz bottle of diffuser oil).
These measurements are for an 8 oz container; tweak for smaller or larger sizes. I’m using a plain garage sale jar, but as gifts I’d go for something fancier, like the pewter daisy jelly lids that fit on these 8-Ounce Quilted Crystal Jelly Jars. Pretty…
Pour 1 teaspoon of fragrance into the jar. Here’s an Amazon link to a company with an extensive line of fragrance oils; this links to Pumpkin Patch, but the company has over four pages of scents, all reasonably-priced!
Add 1 drop of dish soap and swirl to mix. You only add enough soap to allow the oil and water to mingle, not party-hearty!
I added 8 oz of distilled water carefully to the mixture, then slowly stirred; you are not going for suds.
Add as little or a much dye as you wish – it’s not required. I use Wilton Icing Colors because they’re very, very powerful; just the tip of a knife gave me this rose color. I’ve used the same set for over 20 years…have to leave them in my Will!
Yes, I’m a crummy photographer (DH is the camera pro) – you won’t believe how many times I messed up this shot. You only add 1 teaspoon of the gel beads to the water, although it can be a heaping teaspoon, since it’s better to have too many (move the overflow to another jar). Here’s a full page of water beads (also called jelly or crystal soil beads) on Amazon; you could buy an entire pound for under $10 shipped! Do not get carried away; they will continue to increase in size as they absorb water. Here’s two beads after a few hours. FirstBorn saw these on the counter and asked why I had glass beads out. Could not believe they were the same.
Try lavender for bathrooms, rose oil for bedrooms or a nursery, basil and/or thyme for kitchens…custom scents you won’t find in any store. Great personal Christmas gifts because these are not only nontoxic, they can be refreshed with water and a touch more scent. The cost per jar is pennies because you use so little of each item. Even buying fancy jars and lids will still allow custom creations for a few bucks. Tie on some snazzy bows and sell ‘em at the flea market!
