The gift of soap? Really?
Yes! And here’s why.
How many times have you received a gift that you didn’t like? You kept it, hidden away in the back of a closet, or worse – re-gifted it! (dun dun DUN!)
What about the times you’d see knickknacks at grandma’s house covered in dust. She kept them all these years because you gave them to her when you were six.
Soap is simple. In its truest form, it’s water, oils + lye. Sometimes there are fats and butters and scent. That’s all.
* Soap travels well.
* Soap is kind, and it’s a one-size-fits-all, for the most part.
* It slides neatly into any kind of gift box.
* It’s a consumable product, so there’s no need to worry about it sitting on a shelf, collecting dust, or going out of date.
Besides, in one form or another, everyone uses soap!
But, wait! I know what you’re thinking, “What if they’re offended by the gift?”
If you’re a handmade soap user, chances are, your friends and family are probably already aware of that, and wouldn’t be at all surprised by this gift. However, if that isn’t the case, you can explain that you’re:
- supporting your local economy
- trying to be more ecologically responsible
- hoping they’d enjoy the benefits of a handmade soap
- treating them to a little luxury
- (insert reason of your own)
So, the next time you’re shopping, especially for that ‘person-who-has-everything’, why not consider handmade soap?
