Your Cart is Empty

Your eyes do not deceive you!  It really is only May, and yes, we really are asking you what soap gift sets you want for Christmas.

The truth is Christmas comes surprisingly early in the Soap Folk workshop. To make sure we are ready to fill those stockings across the land, we have already started planning and preparing our festive gift selections.

We have plenty of creative ideas up our sleeves, however the best way of making sure we have the loveliest array of presents for gifting this season is of course - to ask YOU!

Time to find out what you want us to make for Christmas

One thing we know - our Soap Folk community is great at telling us what they think!

At the beginning of this year, we asked our newsletter subscribers about the values which mattered most to them.  This helped us to set out our ethics and shape the future of our small company. We realised one of the most important things is to listen to our customers.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The support of our Soap Folk community is truly humbling. We love finding out what you think whether it’s through your reviews, emails or comments on Social Media feeds. 

Now it’s over to you. 

We're starting the Christmas conversation - whether it’s talking to our focus group, polling our newsletter subscribers or Instagram followers. 

You have a great track record in creating our handmade soap gift sets

The travel soap gift set is one of the most popular choices from our handmade soap gift sets. You send them throughout the year to friends as birthday presents, as thank-you to teachers and then finally, as stocking fillers at Christmas time. And the best bit? You helped us create these. We used Instagram to find out which direction to take. Good choice, guys!

What makes our soap gift sets so Soap Folk

Underpinning everything we do is our commitment to sustainability - this means making use ethically sourced ingredients and using plastic free packaging.

There’s more - we love making all our gifts look attractively presented. Being sustainable needn’t be boring. It can be colourful, creative and joyous. 

We make all our soap by hand in the workshop, where we also create and design our gift boxes. This handmade approach allows us to oversee every step so that we are completely happy with everything we send out to you.

 How you can influence our Christmas Gifting collection

We're all ears and open to any suggestons, however here are some of the questions we will be asking: 

  • Do you have a favourite soap you’d like to see turned into a themed gift set?
  • Are you more interested in reasonably priced soap stocking fillers or blow the budget luxury hampers?
  • Is there a member family you would like to see better catered for - children or dads, perhaps?
  • We know you love handmade soap, but would you like to see more items from other makers and designers in our gift sets, such as prints, or even washbags?
  • Would you like us to offer a gift wrapping service?

Look out on all the usual channels - if you don’t already, make sure you subscribe to the newsletter, or follow us on instagram or facebook (there might be some little thank yous for helping us out) We can’t wait to find out your ideas!
