Thanksgiving Goodies, Non-edible Style!

This fun Thanksgiving goodie idea comes from the 'Under the Table and Dreaming' blog (sounds perfect for Thanksgiving, doesn't it??) who describes it as a perfect hostess gift idea.  I agree, but since we aren't able to share dinner with friends or family this year, the girls and I made them as gifts for the nurses and teachers, as well as friends.

The recipe for this sugar exfoliating, moisturizing scrub is HERE; it is very basic -- only requiring brown sugar, granulated sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and sunflower oil.  Despite what the title says, the scrub smelled so yummy that the girls had to taste test.  Yes, it is edible, but we wouldn't recommend it.

Instead, rub a small amount on dried hands and rinse with warm water for a soft touch!

Since no gift may go unadorned, I printed out the attached free circle labels and added some fun DP and a raffia bow.  I also included a sticky label with directions, just in case it was a little confusing on the whole edible part!

Happy Thanksgiving!!


  1. What a cool idea! You packaged it so beautiful and thinking I will use the recipe to make some for little Christmas gifts.

    I miss you too! Glad to see you blogging again. I've had such a busy fall that I'm lucky to post once a week.

    How's the family? How's the new house??
