Crabtree & Evelyn always has beautifully packaged products, but when I was thinking about mother’s day gift suggestions and came across some items with their new, poppy print pattern, I was absolutely smitten! The pattern, created by Royal College of Art textiles graduate, Arum Han, features a white background upon which are strewn large, voluptuous, softly colored pink poppies with floppy green leaves, and grey pen and ink accents. It is feminine, but not so girly that a grown women would think it unsophisticated. The design is special and romantic enough to make anything in the collection a perfect gift for a bride to be or for mother’s day, or just as a pick me up for women who love pretty things.
The collection includes a tea set for one, travel slipper, a sleek mask, soap dish, moisture gloves, waxed cosmetics bags, a luxury shower cap, a lavender sachet, an umbrella, and a paper notebook and notelets.
So many pretty things at reasonable price-points. Which to choose?
Here’s a rundown on the collection:
The China Tea Set For One ($25.00) is beautifully boxed in a hard-sided, re-useable keepsake box with the poppy pattern. Inside, the diminutive china Tea for One set includes a teapot and cup that can be nestled together for compact store and easy use. This also makes a great birthday gift for a special office mate.
The Ceramic Soap Dish ($15.00) is a practical item made pretty. After all, soap dishes are designed to keep your soap from turning to mush on your sink, but why settle for one is simply utilitarian, when you get get one that looks amazing, for about the same price? This Crabtree & Evelyn soap dish is crafted in a softly rounded rectangular shape, of off-white, bisque ceramic. It is decorated with a delicate floral pattern in dove grey that coordinates with the colorful, poppy pattern. It is large enough to hold a bath-sized bar and makes an elegant addition to any bathroom.
A Shower Cap ($12.00), is one of those items every woman uses, mostly every day. Why not have one that is something really special? This water-resistant, cotton shower cap, is trimmed in satin and fully lined to protect hair in the prettiest way. Banish cheap, plastic caps and you’ll realize why it’s often the “little things” that really do make a difference in how you feel.
GIFT TIP: Package the shower cap, soap dish and a Crabtree & Evelyn scented soap together for a shower gift or for mother’s day, and you’ll still have enough left for a card and wrapping paper…and something for yourself!
