3 Birthday gift ideas you’ll love
September has arrived, and we’ve prepared an array of beautiful birthday gift ideas to charm and inspire you. What’s special about September, you ask? Well, this is the most popular month for birthdays, according to gov.co.uk. And at The English Soap Company, we LOVE birthdays. So at this time of year, you’ll find us busy designing packaging, selecting our most popular fragrances, and gathering our favourite products into thoughtful gifts that both you and the birthday person will adore.
How to choose a birthday present
Birthday presents have a unique balance of demands. We often know the recipient quite well, which is different to selecting a ‘thank you’ gift for colleagues and teachers. We usually don’t want the gift to be purely functional, or something that they would buy day-to-day – there should be an element of luxury, no matter how small. And we hope that we’ll be introducing the recipient to a new product, brand or experience that they’ll love as much as we do. With this in mind, we’ve selected three of our current favourite gift options.
Birthday soap gifts
Our luxury soaps are always at the heart of our gifting range, and are now accompanied by a selection of our other must-have products such as hand-poured candles and Eaux de toilette.
Happy Birthday Gift Sets £18
We’ve created two new birthday gift sets for 2021. This is our go-to gift for creating a stylish, relaxed and fragrant home, typical of The English Soap Company.
Every product is vegan-friendly, free from parabens, SLS and SLES, and is presented in fully recyclable packaging.
We make every soap bar, bath product and candle using traditional methods at our farm site in the heart of the Sussex countryside.
Choose the Happy Birthday Grapefruit Gift Set for those with a lust for life and love of fresh, zesty fragrances.
Choose the Happy Birthday Lavender Gift Set for those who enjoy tranquil spaces and like classic British floral scents.
Each gift set contains the following products:
Choose your own
Bath and Body Set
Create your own gift with our Bath and Body Set, and present them with classic English luxury.
Handpick a Vintage Collection soap bar, hand soap gift set and an eau de toilette, each one in the fragrance of your choice from our English garden-inspired range.
If the recipient has a favourite fragrance, then create a matching set in classic fragrances such as English Lavender, Summer Rose or Lily of the Valley.
Alternatively, if you know they love to mix it up, then select a choice of fragrances from the following:
Online birthday gift cards
A gift card is a perfect option when you absolutely can’t decide between our delectable fragrances, or know that the recipient would prefer to choose something themselves. Our online gift cards are also great if you’ve run out of time, and want to send something fast and fabulous to show you care.
For birthday gift cards, you can choose between four designs, including our eco-friendly illustrated print and classic ‘Happy Birthday’ motif.
Gift amounts start at £10, and you can enter a bespoke amount if you wish.
