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.

Happy Birthday Pink Grapefruit set
Happy Birthday Lavender Set

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:

Happy Birthday Soap
These luxury soap bars are the latest additions to our Occasions range. They’re ultra special because they’re wrapped in hand-illustrated paper with a ‘Happy Birthday’ motif. Enriched with shea butter, we’ve got everyone covered with either a classic lavender or bright grapefruit scent.
English Lavender Soy Wax Candle
Soy wax candle
Our hand-poured candles are made in-house using traditional methods and are long-lasting, with around a 35-hour burn time. Generously scented with one of our complex fragrances, each soy wax candle is cruelty-free and comes in recyclable packaging.

The final element is a set of three gorgeous heart-shaped soaps in a gift box. The guest soaps are perfect for people who enjoy sharing the love, placing in your guest bathroom as a treat for guests, and can also be packed and used as travel soap for car trips and holidays.

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.
