Homemade sugar scrubs, how do you store/preserve?

My older girls and i made sugar scrubs for Christmas gifts today. Once I made them I realized that Christmas is still a month away and I don't want them to go bad. I'm not even sure they would. 1 we made was brown sugar & vanilla (brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla and olive oil) the other was pumpkin (pureed pumpkin, brown sugar, white sugar, spices and olive oil). I'm more worried about teh pumpkin going bad since it does have fresh pumpkin in it. Will the oil keep it good? Should it be refrigerated? I posted here because I know there are lots who are doin gthe sugar scrubs as christmas gifts this year..

Hmm... never made one with something like the pumpkin in it... I would probably refrigerate that one...

Yeah-I'd keep that one in the fridge.
Every time I've made them I either use the shorter mason jars or a travel container. But I just use infused sugars and oils.
