Hand “Santa”tizer Gift Idea


Are you looking for a great neighbor gift that isn’t a sweet treat? This hand sanitizer is perfect for the holiday season because it helps keep the germs away! It’s also inexpensive and easy to make, with an added bonus of an adorable name: Hand “Santa”tizer!

This recipe fills five 2 oz. bottles, so you can keep one and give four away. You can also double or triple the recipe if you have lots of friends.

We really liked the treatment pump top for our bottles, but you can use a disc-top cap too. If you want to make a hand sanitizer spray, use aloe vera juice instead of aloe vera gel, and put it in a spray bottle.

And, of course, you can’t forget the adorable vinyl label! We have several you can pick from:

Another option is to print your own labels with these blank labels.
