Last week I made a big beautiful batch of fresh clean soap. I tried it this week and it was amazing! The satisfaction of making things from scratch is just as rejuvenating as the soap itself. Since I love to share my creations with my friends and family, I bundled the soaps up in pretty scrapbook paper, added a few nice wash cloths and tucked them in a little box. This would be a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. I know there are some folks out there who just don’t appreciate the hand crafted gifts idea, but there is one person who always will. A mom. A mom will always love and appreciate a handmade gift no matter how old you are. That’s the most amazing thing about moms. They love you and all your crazy ideas no matter what.
If you don’t have a large batch of homemade soap, you can always buy a nice bar at your local farmers market and wrap it up in pretty scrap-book paper or fabric. This would also be a nice gift for a new baby/mom. I love gifts like this because they don’t break the bank, but they show you took the time to wrap it nicely, rather than stuffing it into a gift bag, which I am so over.
