Make a bar of colorful soap
There are so many different ways you can make a homemade soap so I decided to include a few tutorials - pick the one that sounds best to you.
A word of caution though, once the person who will receive your handmade soap uses it there will be no turning back, he or she will beg you to make more soaps as they are really addictive.

Gifts in a Jar
Do you prefer receiving handmade or store bought gifts?
I am sure you have a bunch of empty glass jars somewhere in your household just waiting to be recycled. Why not use them to make fancy gifts?
Ideas are limitless but if you are wondering about the one in the picture it is bake ready (well almost) cookie mix!
You can make it following the instructions found on Bakerella (labels are also included!)
