Day 7: Step away from the Boots 3-4-2 gift set…
We've teamed up with The Better Brand Consultant to bring you a 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide. Over the next 12 days, we’ll be giving you considered and alternative options from within the LWL community. Each gift has been hand picked and you’ll be able to find something for everyone from the foodies to the fashionistas. And because we all love a bargain, look out for the special LWL offers and discounts which they’ve kindly offered.
“Smellies”: the inoffensive, fail-safe option for people you know you like, but you just don’t know very well. If you’re looking to up your gifting game this year, look no further than The Soap Co; an award-winning social enterprise and ethical luxury brand that create beautiful, natural body care products.
Based in East London, and with a traditional workshop in the Lake District, The Soap Co proves there doesn't need to be a trade-off between award winning design, responsible living and social purpose. They currently employ over 100 people - 80% of whom are blind disabled or otherwise disadvantaged. Through the sale of their products they create over 10,000 days of employment and aim to generate over 60 new jobs per year.
The quality and integrity of the products speak for themselves. Over the past year, The Soap Co have caught the attention of leading beauty writers and bloggers, and this year became available on CultBeauty.com, The Conran Shop & John Lewis; proving that this social enterprise can compete with the beauty industry’s heavyweights.
My personal favourite is the vegan & 100% natural Unwind bath & body oil, made with Lavender, Sandalwood & Juniper Berries, and if you’re looking for a sustainable stocking filler check out the Black Poppy & Wild Fig, White Tea Gift Soap £14, or the Gift Box Trio in Citrus £30 for a fully formed gift.
