Giving Handmade Soap As a Gift

Everyone loves receiving a gift, whether it is for a birthday, anniversary, holiday or just to say "I was thinking of you!" Imagine the look on their face when they see a wonderful, handmade item that you picked out just for them, chosen by their favorite colors, styles and tastes.

When choosing what handmade soap to give as a gift, first think of the recipient and ask yourself the following questions: What colors do they prefer? Do they like being outdoors or indoors? Do they favor warm scents or cool scents? Do they like cleaning agents that exfoliate? How often do they use handmade soap?

If the gift recipient likes being outdoors, consider a woodsy, musky or earthy scent. Favorites include cedarwood, ylang ylang, juniper fir, fresh cut grass or bamboo. Great musk scents are opium, amber or sandalwood. If they favor warm scents, try some pink grapefruit, bergamot, or cinnamon. If they prefer cool scents, try some oceanwater, fresh rain or everglade.

Handmade soap is available in such a wide variety of colors, you should have no problem locating a few of their favorite colors in a favorable scent. Warm scents usually come in pinks, reds, oranges, browns and yellows. Cool scents are mostly found with greens, blues, purples and whites. Wonderful swirl patterns comprise several colors and are very eye-catching and look great sitting on a bathroom counter or displayed in a kitchen.

Be sure to remind the recipient the wonderful benefits of handmade soap when you give them their gift, and how you thoughtfully chose the scent, texture and color based on their preferences. They will appreciate how much thought you put into giving them handmade soap as a gift.
