  1. I am not very good at DIY projects but love the idea of the hommemade vanilla extract (I am much better when it comes to making things in the kitchen). ANother great idea you cna keep in mind is homemade sugar scrub, really simple to make and different essential oils will work perfectly for different seasons.
    I also really like the idea of making a coffee set for any breakfast or coffee/tea lovers.
