Favorites on the First #1

Alison at The Polo House is hosting a new linky party all about favorites!  It will be on the first of every month.  This month, Alison want to know:

What is your favorite gift to give during the holidays?


I like to give presents that are consumable and will not end-up in a landfill, so I love giving Mistral soaps!  They are fantastic teacher gifts, too.  Click this link for the Mistral website.

J'adore the winter pine soap!

I love the way these soaps feel and smell.  An added bonus is they already come gift wrapped!

Until next time...

Blessings!

  1. They are wrapped so prettily that I would never want to open them and use them. How great to have in a guest bathroom this time of the year!!

  4. These are so pretty and I love a luxury gift that one maybe would not buy for themselves.

  7. Beautiful gift and useful
    It is so true. Why not give something small useful and earth freindly instead of the bigger the better tossed out in the new year gift
    Really gives us something to think about :)

  9. I'm trying hard to not buy "made in China" this Christmas season. Your pretty soaps are a wonderful idea and so useful. I enjoyed catching up on your blog today. Lots of pretties!

  11. I would love getting those decorative soaps as a gift. I can smell The winter pine one now. Candles are always a favorite of mine for gift giving, and ornaments. Everyone can use both.

  15. Ricki Jill - Thanks so much for stopping by via The Polohouse and the Favorite's Linky Party. I had done my blog the night before waiting for Alison to post instructions and when I checked again, you had already posted. It was so much fun putting it all together. Have not checked out the La Boheme soap collection yet but plan to do so. I love different soaps and it sounds like a lot of people have not heard of it so it would be a unique gift in my part of the world. New follower so I will be stopping by soon.
