Why Buy Our Handmade Gifts This Summer?


Summer is very much upon us and as far as British summertime goes, we’re not doing too badly with the weather - and that alone is a reason to celebrate. Wherever you are, there's been plenty of barbeque and sunbathing opportunities already - but that's not the only reason we're seeing smiles everywhere we go! This time of year in particular means people are passing exams, buying new homes, starting their own family, getting married and many other exciting events. Now is the time when we're all making positive changes; both big and small.

Here at The Yorkshire Soap Company, we've made a strong habit of celebrating at any opportunity - and as a result we've developed a variety of products to support us with our gift-giving addiction. With this in mind, we thought we'd write about the top 3 occasions our soap gifts are suitable for this summer!

GRADUATION - Grab Your Hats and Gowns!

It’s that time of year again when, for many people, adult life is really about to start. After several years, University is almost all over and a new era is about to begin away from the education system (although we're always learning of course)! So, after your final exams, there’s only one thing left for it... and that’s a big celebration! Whether you are spoiling yourself or treating a loved one to graduation gifts, nothing says “well done” quite like our Congratulations Cupcake (literally)! Infused with Pomegranate, Japanese Plum and Pear, this is one of our most popular fragrances and you'll see why as soon as you smell it. It’s the perfect way to show how proud you are of that special someone. Decorated with ‘Congratulations’ confetti (or a "Congratulations" tag) and a beautiful burgundy flower, this cupcake doesn’t just smell great, it looks fantastic too! So if you or someone you know is graduating this year, look no further... we've got exactly what you need!


PREGNANCY - There's a little one on the way!

It might be you. It might be a friend. It might be a family member. Whoever it is, expecting a baby is super-exciting and provides a great excuse to send or receive gifts. Baby showers have become the best way for friends and family to come together and share the excitement of the precious new arrival. It’s a celebration of love, friendship, and of course the cheeky little baby that’s on the way! Whether you’re attending a baby shower this summer, or arranging one, we can certainly help you out! Our scented Bath Truffles are the perfect gifts for your guests. These wonderful little treats are made with lashings of cocoa butter, sweet almond oil and natural powders to give the most luxurious bathtimes. From a wide variety of different scents and colours, you can easily choose a truffle to tie in with a theme or the big gender reveal! Our pink flowered, Apple Blossom Bath Truffles are the perfect way for welcoming a baby girl; or maybe our blue flowered, Violet Sparkle Bath Truffles will bring that baby blue theme to your event! Our wonderful Bath Truffles are presented in a clear cellophane bag with a ribbon and gift tag and will definitely not break the bank!


NEW HOMES - Home Is Where The Heart Is

Moving into a new home is a tiring and daunting process. With weeks of paperwork, shifting furniture and travelling back and forth; we often forget that moving house is also one of the most exciting changes you can make to your life - and this needs to be celebrated! It's quite fitting then to mention our fabulous Luxury Home Scents Hamper. Full to the brim of woody, floral or fruity scents, this range of home fragrances will make your house a home in no time at all! Perfect as a gift, or a self-pampering treat to relieve you from the stressful move.

So whatever it is you're celebrating this summer, we hope you are celebrating in "Yorkshire Soap" style!
