If you're a last minute shopper (like I tend to be) you likely aren't ready to start thinking holidays, but it's never too early to get a few ideas jotted down. Shopping can be serious business, so a plan of attack is a great idea. Often times, it's the little somethings that can be hard to find or think of. Something thoughtful, useful, and not overly expensive... FarmHouse Fresh has some perfect offerings for such situations. While bath and body gifts aren't for everybody on your list, these will please quite a few.
Everyone uses soap in some form or another, so gifting a fancy bar of something you might not be inclined to buy for yourself is perfect. FarmHouse Fresh has a collection of gloriously scented, hydrating shea butter soaps that have an artisanal look, are 97% natural, vegan and free parabens, sulphites, and gluten that are sure to please. The bars are large and weighty (no wimpy soap here) with a blend of shea butter, olive oil, and sweet almond oil to hydrate and nourish skin with a thick and rich lather. Bath bliss, really.
The three scents available are completely drool-worthy (what else did you expect from FHF?) with Front Porch Punch's sangria-like vibes combining strawberry, grapefruit, mango, melon, and peach. Citrine Beach blends lime with coconut and rum for a mini beach vaccay with every wash, while Coconut Cream brings a pie-like experience with coconut and tonka bean. Yum all around!
For those on your list (and yourself, because these are pretty great) who enjoy their pampering time, the mini sets are perfect options. FarmHouse Fresh has three sets on offer that feature three mini size pots of some of their most popular products. I've got the Sweeping Softness 3-in-one Sampler that includes sweetly scented hydrating products:
- Whoopie Cream: a shea butter based body cream formulated with vitamin E, jojoba, and soybean oil and a bakery-style cake scent (think vanilla and cream.) Super hydrating, but with a light whipped feel.
- Sweet Cream: a fine sea salt scrub that combines rice bran oil (rich in vitamin E) to slough away dead skin and reveal radiant, smooth skin with no oily feel or film. It has a warm, sweet, creamy scent that seems straight up edible.
- Agave Nectar: a deeply hydrating body oil formulated with agave nectar, barley, sandalwood and amurense bark and a blend of natural oils that work to hydrate and reduce skin's moisture loss. No greasy feel, immediate absorption, and the most perfect cake meets cream and... who knows what scent (FHF says tiramisu) that I can't get enough of.
Overall, some amazing giftables (and wantables) from FarmHouse Fresh. I am especially into the mini sampler sets, as they let you trial your way though a bunch of fun products. What do you think? Would you like to give or get any of these?
