Who Gets What?

I got a customer's email today asking which of our gifts sets to choose for the people on her Christmas list.  Because we want holiday shopping to be as fun and stress-free as possible, I thought I'd put some of these ideas here...

Home for the Holidays

Warm, homey scents.  Good for the Christmas hostess, Grandma, holiday gift exchanges.

Apricot Freesia

Sweet and Fruity.  Good for girly-girls who love to spend hours pampering... sisters, moms, best friends, and guys, listen up: your wife!!

Holiday Pomegranate

Clean and Fruity.  Good for just about anybody- one of our best sellers!

Lemon Kitchen

Fresh and Clean.  Great for cooks- anybody who loves to work in the kitchen.

Winter Bonsai

Cool and Crisp.  Great for guys, but women love this scent too.

6 Soap Sampler

For that picky person on your list (you know who they are!)  Or, split up the set and use as stocking stuffers!

Minty Goodness

This one is great for guys and gals- perfect to share with your sweetheart!

Hope this helps with your holiday shopping!  We will be shipping the weekend orders bright and early Monday morning!!

Something for Everyone!

We've got a great new product at Bean Street Market- our 6 Soap Sampler!

We pack 6 of our pretty, handmade soaps into a gift box- a great way for you to try six of our moisturizing, specialty, lovely-scented soaps.  And of course, it makes a great gift...I think this would make the perfect Secret Santa present!

Available at Bean Street Market!

Inspiration Tuesday- Happy Tape!

Okay, I just bought some... Happy Tape

I found thes perusing the latest Martha Stewart Living magazine...As usual, I'm drawn to color, and these Japanese masking tapes are so lovely!  I'm thinking how pretty these would be wrapped around kraft paper wrapped packages for Christmas... or maybe around a bar of soap!   Hmmm...

New Goat's Milk Soap

We've got a brand new soap at Bean Street: Goat's Milk Soap! 

Goat's milk is a great addition to soap.  It contains vitamins A, B6, B12, and E, and makes for a very creamy, moisturizing soap.  These are our first goat's milk soaps, and I have to say, I *really* like this soap!  Very sudsy, and it doesn't dry my skin... can't wait to make all kinds of goat's milk soaps!!

Finally!  Fruitcake you'll love!

Don't these soapy creations look yummy enough to eat?

Inspiration Tuesday- Fiestaware

I'm going to change up Tuesdays for a while, from Travels to Inspirations!  I love (love love) color, which is one of the things I enjoy most about soapmaking- the color choices and combinations are limited only by the imagination.  One of the blogs I follow is ColourLovers, and yesterday they had a great post about Fiesta Dinnerware!  So many beautiful colors!!

This week, I'm going to try and duplicate some of these brilliant Fiesta colors in some soap...and I may just ask for some more Fiestaware for Christmas...

Mint Lavender Soap

This Mint Lavender Soap is heavy on the mint, light on the lavender (that's why it's green & white instead of purple & white :)

Another one of our clean, soapy scents, good for Him or Her!
