Christmas is just six weeks away! (Give or take...) I don't know about you, but I could use the gift of relaxation. Wouldn't it be nice to give the gift of relaxation? Well you can. I made this bath bombs last week and they were the bomb dot com. (Forgive my late 1990's humor.)

These homemade bath bombs require minimal effort and are just as good as bath bombs from places like Lush, for a fraction of the cost. I made 24 mini bath bombs and 10 full size bath bombs for around $8. Yup, a DIY gift under $1 each.
