Jars of sweets -
I got some Kilner jars from Dunelm for something like £1.79 each and brought a variety of sweets to fill them with! I've seen jars like this in Selfridges for £15!! They look really lovely.
Since this photo was taken, my boyfriend has made some mini polaroid photos to tie around them as labels.
Sweets used - Liquorice all-sorts, Marshmallows, Chocolate Buttons, Flying Saucers and Moams!
Lavender Bath Salts -
Using the Kilner Jars I also made some bath salts for ladies in the family.
I got a salt mix from ebay which includes epsom salts, sea salt and bicarbonate of soda.
Use 2 cups epsom to 1 cup sea salt and 1/2 cup bicarb and then add some dried lavender (my boyfriend had an abundance cut back from his garden) and essence of lavender.
I then tied the jars with a purple ribbon and made a tag out of brown luggage-style labels attaching a sprig of lavender! A perfect, thrifty gift! And it makes your muscles feel amazing after a hot bath.
