I am a bit short for xmass this year and more so because im trying to cover everyone. I know not really realistic but I feel like I leave people out. So I thought I might make everyone hand made soaps. Honestly now. What would you think of that gift from an family member? I do make soaps from scratch all the chemestery involved. No melt and pour stuff. is that a good gift? and what kind of smell???

I for one would love a gift of handmade soaps! A friend makes them and every Christmas I look forward to her gift basket. She wraps the bars in netting and ties them with gold ribbon and then arranges them in a nice small basket, just a perfect touch for the vanity. Last year, she included some handmade massage oil, really nice! Go for it!

Oh? You know a soaper? verry cool. I am the only person i know around here. :( would be fun to have someone else to share my hobie with. I havent tried oils or lotions yet. lotions especially look like fun. :) but I think ill do just bars of soap this year. :)

I think it would be a lovely idea. Vanilla scented seems to be a scent everyone loves. Go for it girly!
