i was attempting to post this a week or two ago for mothers day — but time totally got away from me. so while this would make the perfect easy little handmade mother’s day gift, if you don’t have time to make for mom day, you can make it for mom birthday instead.

i’ve been wanting to try to DIY bubble bath for a while — then i researched it for a few days, and found out you kind of can’t diy bubble bath. the chemicals that are in the bubble baths we buy are what makes it super bubbly, so instead i settled on a bath soak that gets a little frothy.

once you’ve made your bath products, you can use a label maker to label them, or write on a piece of washi tape. then throw them together in a cute little basket (mine is from here) or box along with a loofah, a little spoon for the scrub and a pretty bar of soap. such a profesh homemade present, right?!

  3. What a wonderful idea and my family always appreciates homemade, natural spa items. My mother would like to receive this anytime of the year.

  4. Hi Molly, I just found your blog and absolutely love it. I’m curious about the label maker you linked to. Does it have an ampersand character? Thanks!!
