This was how I first came to think of soap as a gift. I'm not sure who the gift-givers in the family were that were so fond of fancy little soaps, but I know that my mother would end up with a gift package almost every year after our White Elephant Christmas. Sometimes they were simply scented bars, other times they were put into little shapes. I think I even remember one year she came home with some that were cut into little bird shapes and sat in a nest - I thought they were too pretty to use.
This was ages and ages ago of course, but I still remember how sweet they smelled and how much I wanted to decorate my own bathrooms with pretty soaps when I grew up. I've always thought of soaps as a go-to present and never thought it the least odd to give soaps as a gift. I didn't realize how unique a gift it was until a couple of years ago when I gave a friend of mine a gift basket with decorative soaps and she was stunned as she exclaimed at me, "You always think of the neatest things! I never would have thought in a million years to give someone decorative soaps!" I can't remember the precise company I used at the time, but I do know that they matched her angel-themed bathroom, and she was thrilled to receive them. Now she gives soap as a gift quite frequently, and loves decorating different rooms with sculptured soaps.
