Here in our little town, we have the cutest family that makes the most fragrant, wonderful soaps and lotions you’ve ever used!

They’re called Arrows and Oaks, and they own a five acre farm in our neighboring town.  They found themselves with an abundance of goat milk and decided to find a use for it. And because of that inventive spirit, they now own a small business that ships their delightful items nationwide!

Gift Time!

Our handmade gift today is very simple to put together and it is sure to be a favorite!

Go by the Arrows and Oaks Website and pick up a few items!  I decided to put together a gift for my brother and one for my sister-in-law.

For my sister-in-law’s soap gift set, I picked out the Rosy Cheeks Set (it comes with a Rosy Cheeks Botanical Facial Bar and Argan Facial Cream).  I use them every night, so I can promise you that they smell AMAZING and make your skin so supple and soft! The ingredients are listed on the back, and include things like Goat Milk, Fair Trade Shea Butter, Rose Water, and several essential oils.

To make it even more special I am packing it in a bag that I got in one of my Fair Trade Friday Subscription Boxes! This specific bag was made by 3 Cords in Haiti.

The vision of 3 Cords is to bring life transformation through an artisan business that focuses on employing Haitians with disabilities, as well as at-risk women.

My brother is going to LOVE his gift.  His beard is like his child…he grooms it all the time and is super proud of it.  So I picked up a Birch Beer Shaving Bar and some Handsome Goat Beard Oil.

Pack them in a masculine wooden box (Matt’s going to have a tutorial for a handmade one later this month!) and include a beard brush and you’ll be set!

You know what the best thing about this gift is? You’re not only supporting a small, local business, but you’re also supporting people all around the world by helping them earn a fair wage for the work they do.  And you get awesome stuff…so it’s really a win all around!
