Three more shopping days til Christmas–stay calm. If you’ve been watching any of the news coverage about “last minute shopping” or “panic shopping,” you’d be led to believe that a great many of those last minute shoppers are men…and that’s probably the case. (But anyone can find themselves in a last-minute sprint to get those few remaining friends and family the perfect little something.) Soap + Water in Newport has a ton of treats from stocking stuffers to treasured finds to pamper ones you care about, but especially ladies who, like so many, always put so many others first and forget to pamper themselves.
While fragrance can be challenging to gift some one with because scents are a personal preference, sets like Meet the Girls by TOCCA are fabulous because they offer a little bit of everything. The 10 .15 oz sprays, which come in a beautiful tin, “embrace every aspect of femininity,”with each boasting a girly name: Cleopatra, Stella, Florence, Giuletta, Colette, Bianca, Violette, Liliana, Margaux, Simone.
NEST Fragrances for body, bath and home set the luxury bar high with a cult-like following for their reed diffusers, liquid soap, body wash, body cream, and Body & Soul Eau De Toilette Spray.
Build Your Own: at Soap + Water you can build your own gift for that someone special. Include some:
Molton Brown—Soap + Water is the only place you can get the London-based bath, body & beauty goods.
Pretty You London Slippers–Cheerio to another fabulous London brand (The men’s version? “Ugly Me” slippers, naturally)
PJ Harlow Women’s Loungewear—Designed for women by women, made in the USA and on Oprah Winfrey’s 2013 Great Gifts list. Need we say more?
Crabtree & Evelyn--this line’s local loyalists will remember when Newport had it’s own Crabtree & Evelyn storefront until it closed a few years ago. Today, Soap + Water carries some of Crabtree’s most popular collections, including Jojoba Oil and Gardeners divine (and famously lauded) 60 Second Fix for Hands and more.
Nautical-themed throws and pillows (perfect for a snuggly night in)
