They’re cute, but not really usable.

It looks very nice but I would definitely place them on a separate table near the door. The scent could be a bit much at the dinner tables.

I made soap for a living some years back and I can tell you now that if you don’t care if people use them… they won’t. Soap seems to have a particular… flair. If it is obtained in certain ways, people will never use it. If it is pretty, or has any form of decoration, people will never use it.

So, it’s a cute idea, but people will not use it. If that’s okay with you, go for it. But it will likely be put in a bathroom drawer and it will never see the light of day again until spring purging and/or the residents move out and it will have a conversation like, “Where’d we get this soap?”

“Dunno, throw it out.”

It’s very thoughtful and very cute 🙂


I’d prefer your adorable soaps to 8 M&Ms in a tiny plastic bag I cannot get opened.

I honestly would either do the jam or candies. Most people are just going to as PP said either throw the soap away or it will get stuck in some drawer.

I think it’s a nice idea.  Unlike other posters, I appreciate the thought that goes into homemade soap and prefer it to regular industrial soap (unless the scent is really strong / bad).  They look really beautifully packaged as well!

It’s very pretty. I’d prefer something more usable, but I guess if people want to use the soap they’ll cut away the decorations and use it. It is very very pretty though!

I’d use the soap as a nice-smell-in-the-drawer / closet if it was wraped in some nice paper. 

For some reason i don’t like it wraped in burlap & lace… 

(Maybe because I am thinking it might stick together with it awefully? Not sure…)

@soontobehisbride:  i think they look cute but imo, you are going to go through a lot of wasted efforts.  people will leave them or throw them out.

i like your idea of homemade jams.  that will get used.

they can still be decorated to fit your theme.
