Give The Gift Of Natural Handmade Soap
What giving the gift of soap really means
“Oh no, I can’t give them soap as a gift! What will they think? That I’m trying to tell them they smell bad?”
We’re here to dispel this dumb myth. People will NOT be offended if they receive a gift of soap from you. Unless they really DO smell awful and they know it, and you did actually give them soap so that they might be enticed to shower more. Those situations are usually obvious to everyone and are not what we are talking about here.
What’s most likely the case is that you want to give somebody a smallish, relatively inexpensive gift, maybe as a hostess gift, or stocking stuffer to your son’s new girlfriend that you haven’t met yet, that kind of thing. And you’re worried that if they get a bar of soap, they’ll think it has some kind of underlying message. Because after all, soap is equated with dirt and being unclean, right?
Here’s the thing. People generally like soap. They wash regularly, probably every day. And handmade soap is a specialty item, something made with care and unique ingredients for a higher level of self-care than a bar of grocery store suds. It’s a practical, usable, everyday item but being that it’s handmade, higher quality, and unique, it’s maybe something people don’t splurge on for themselves very often. Isn’t that the very definition of what a gift is?
Pleasure & Enjoyment
Other things the gift of handmade soap says is that you understand the recipient enjoys the good stuff, even in everyday things. Your friend appreciates the finer things in life. Plus, they care for themselves and welcome a bit of pampering too. Or they are attracted to scents and things of a sensual nature, so gifting them something personal and fragrant gives them the experience of pleasure and enjoyment.
So how can any of this be a bad thing? It’s all good stuff. Really good stuff! Handmade soap is a relatively inexpensive, practical, unique item that perfectly embodies what a good gift item is. And it’s not just for women either. Men like all that stuff too. Even if they don’t know it yet. Just surprise them with a great bar of manly soap and they’ll be amazed at what they’ve been missing.

You can think about the scents your recipient likes and buy the soaps and other bath and beauty products that have that smell. The sky is the limit on what you choose. And now that the holidays are approaching, a one stop shopping trip is all you need for the important (and not so important) people in your life.
