Who doesn’t like to receive nice soaps and smellies? Trouble is, gift sets can run into pounds and pounds and so much of it is just fancy packaging – and we can do that for ourselves – right?
I don’t mind paying for handmade soaps as gifts. that way the gift isn’t ‘cheap’ – a few pounds for one bar of soap isn’t cheap but doesn’t hit the purse too hard.
I wrapped up a nice bar of handmade (not by me) oatmeal and honey soap with some scraps of hessian and ribbon. Wrapped it all in some pretty cellophane and the end result looks sweet and thoughtful. This one is a little thank you gift but I’m going to be making plenty more to make up a basket of bathtime goodies in time for Christmas…. it’ll be here sooner than you think.
