Lavender for Holiday Gifts

Hello everyone,
Gather your shopping bags it's almost Black Friday and we're all looking for the perfect gift to give family and friends this Holiday.  This year I made some handmade gifts from the lavender I grew in my garden this summer.  
Lavender sachets, lavender bath salts and bouquets of 16 inch lavender stems. (50 stems per bouquet) I have plenty of lavender left over to make soap and candles when the busy Christmas season is over.


Lavender Bath Salts♥
homemade bath salts and silver plate spoons from the thrift store. The bath salts are in a net bag with three sprigs of lavender tied on top...with a lavender ribbon. 

Lavender sachets are packaged in sheer net bags and linen bags. 
A lavender iron on transfer is used to decorate the linen bags and tea towels.


Have a great weekend and I will back soon to share with you my holiday decorations.
Joyously,
Betty

  3. I adore the smell of lavender. It is my favourite garden flower. You must have many lavender plants in your garden to make all these gifts. I bought some sachets for my two special lunch friends at a market yesterday. If I was organized I could have made them myself. Have a lovely week. I am joining you over at Mosaic Monday.

  5. Your lavender bags will make some lucky recipients very happy. I have some dried from this summer, too, just sitting there. Sachets would be a good idea.
