3 Top Tips for the Perfect Birthday Gift

Birthdays. We all love them! It’s the time where being spoilt is totally acceptable; there is nothing better than watching the Birthday boy or girl tear open your gift with a smile that nobody could wipe away.

It isn’t always fun and games though, is it? Sometimes finding that gift can be a real struggle. You can walk from shop to shop for what feels like hours and still be left feeling uninspired and anything but excited! That’s pressure right there.

So how do you know if you are choosing the right gift? Since 2004, we’ve been creating and perfecting gifts, so we have come up with 3 top tips to help you on your way to choosing the perfect birthday gift for that special person.


Personality is Key

Think about hobbies, special interests and what you know that ‘special someone’ likes. If you have the next Mary Berry in your family, they might not need another whisk! We might just have the perfect alternative! Our Happy Birthday Soap Cupcakes and Soap Cake Slices are almost good enough to eat (but please don’t)! These little treats are scented with Yorkshire Rhubarb and Vanilla Custard and even come with a candle to make that special birthday wish. All individually wrapped, these ornate handmade gifts are a great way to start off the birthday celebrations!


Be Original

If you like taking a risk by giving gifts of originality, our novelty soaps could be just the thing for you! Finding a unique gift can sometimes be a daunting and stressful task but we aim to take that stress away by providing you with the perfect soapy solution! Our novelty soap range currently includes our Fish in a Bag Soap; a great reminder of those childhood memories at the fun fair! Made with moisturising vegetable glycerine, this fruity scented soap is presented in a clear cellophane bag, tied together with rope ribbon and finished with a gift tag. So why not give something a little quirky? Nostalgic gifts are the best gifts – end of.


The Gift of Choice

If you’re still out of ideas, then don’t worry. We’ve all been in the position at least once where we just can’t decide on a gift. So why not give them the gift of choice? Our wide range of Luxury Hampers include a selection of beautiful products and scents at affordable prices. You can choose from a variety of best-selling hampers, or even make your own! Our most popular hamper is the Happy Birthday Hamper, and will certainly leave that special person spoilt for choice. Each birthday hamper contains one of our beautifully gift wrapped Happy Birthday Soap Cupcakes, along with our No6 - Invigorating Lemongrass, Rosemary and Grapefruit scented Shower Gel, Soap Bar and Bath Bomb. To top off this wonderful selection, we also include a Mango & Lychee Travel Candle and a moisturising Bath Truffle. With this brilliant hamper full of treats, they are bound to find a favourite. So, if you struggled choosing this year, you’ve certainly made your job a whole lot easier next year!
