What do you give the person that loves to make everything? The DIY people in our lives can be tough to shop for since they seem to have all the skills and know-how to make whatever they want or need. I find that the best gifts to give any DIY’er in your life are the tools, materials, and knowledge that allow them to whip up whatever their heart desires. Wether they love to create their own beauty products, home decor, clothing, or accessories; there are a lot of options in giving a gift for the maker in your life. Better yet, there are tons of gifts you can give that still encompass the Feelgood Style life and mantra! Here are some great products that any DIY guy or gal would love to see under the tree this year!


Mountain Rose Herbs Gift Certificate








For anyone who loves to create their own beauty products at home, supplies are an essential. There are a lot of things that you can find in your grocery store but there are other supplies that you need to source elsewhere. Mountain Rose Herbs is a great company that offers bulk herbs, spices, oils, and butters for any beauty product imaginable. Their prices are reasonable and their products are top quality! [Available at Mountain Rose Herbs, gift certificates start at $25.]
