Perfect Pair: Scented Pear Soap
I have pears on my mind lately for two reasons: the lovely hosts who had us over for Christmas dinner made an amazing salad with mouth-watering pears in it, and we then received a Harry and David gift basket with some pears in it. So this is as good a time as any to mention this stocking stuffer: pear-scented soap elegantly presented in a little box with a brown ribbon. The Spoon Sisters website bills it as a perfect wedding favor (I guess that's where the manufacturers are going with the "perfect pair" thing!), but I think it would work just as well as a stocking stuffer or in a spring gift basket, especially since it's only $3.95.
As always, I feel compelled to mention this caveat every time I post about a scented stocking stuffer -- don't put it next to chocolate, which can pick up the scent and taste of soap. I learned this the hard way. ;-)
What: Perfect Pair: Scented Pear Soap
Where: Spoon Sisters website
