I love sharing gift ideas! In fact, in years past I’ve enjoyed adding to my series called, “Handmade Holidays”, in order to give you several ideas for gifts you can give during the Holiday season.

This year has looked quite a bit different for our family, as we’ve been trying to adjust to moving into our new pole barn home, which is very much still in the construction zone phase. Our priorities have been getting our home comfortable, instead of festive. And coming up with gift ideas for you has also taken a back burner.

Nonetheless, I still needed something quick and easy to give to my own friends and family – and once I discovered these incredible smell blaster bags full of charcoal from Bisou Natural, I knew just what I wanted to do!

The only thing I would need to make was a cute gift tag that said, “You are getting coal for Christmas”, tie it with ribbon, and I was good to go!

I also made up a printable to go with it that explains what is inside these bags, so the giftee will understand better what they are getting, and what it has to do with “coal”.

If you are curious, let me tell you a little bit more about these charcoal filled bags from Bisou Natural, and why I love them enough to gift them.

Bisou Natural - moso bamboo charcoal

Bisou Natural has made a product that is full of Moso Bamboo Charcoal – nicknamed “Black Gold”. This particular charcoal is extremely porous and has a crazy awesome ability to absorb particles out of the air, leaving the surrounding area smelling fresh and clean – naturally.

Bamboo charcoal can remove odors, bacteria, and excess moisture from the air.

My first experience using charcoal to naturally deodorize was during our RV life. No matter what I tried, I couldn’t get the fridge to stop stinking – a common RV problem in the Summertime. I place some charcoal in the fridge, and it disappeared COMPLETELY! I was sold!

Finding natural ways to make our home smell good is especially important to me, because of some allergies and sensitivities a few of us in my family have for chemicals. We can’t tolerate any cleaners with scents and additives, so the only alternatives I have found that really make our home smell nice are essential oils and charcoal. What is so great, is that these bags are reusable for up to 2 years!
