Personalized Hand Santizer

by Chris on January 14, 2013

So I love making these things. Anytime I need a small gift, it’s my go-to item. With Valentine’s Day on its way, I thought I’d make a few up. Instead of the red/pink theme, I went with something more Michigan friendly. Winter.


The directions are pretty straight-forward. Purchase some clear hand sanitizer and peel the stickers off. Use some sticker remover (baby oil works ok in a pinch), and decorate to your heart’s content. I always like to put a little tag on mine to give it some dimension, but it’s really up to you.


I like to choose stickers that are either cut out or have a clear background. Just be aware of it when you’re choosing your stickers. Hobby Lobby has stickers 40-50% off quite often. Stock up!



Quite pretty, eh?


I wrap them in various ways, but if it’s just something small, I place them in a tin bucket from the dollar section at Target. I use coffee filters for the tissue/filler and attach a coordinating tag. If you’re looking for something small, charming, and personal, this is both easy and inexpensive!

Yep, this is one of my favorite gifts to make for teachers…. especially this time of year when there are coughs and runny noses everywhere!
Love the way yours turned out and your “wrapping” idea ~cute!

Love those — especially the snow one! I’m also a Michigan girl and we could use another coating of snow now!

Ooooh… This is so darling. Looks expensive, but easy to do. You are a genious. Loved the coffee filter stuffing idea. I would never have thought of that one. Great! The colors (blue) just pop and make me feel happy. Ya know??
