I find these needle-felted soaps by Etsy’s Charings to be quite pleasing to the eye. My sister bought some recently and has been raving about the novelty of it— the wool actually helps preserve the soap inside, so it’s not melting away like it would if you were running it directly under warm water. The wool, as you squish it and rub it on your hands, actually acts as an exfoliator. I imagine you also could use one in your closet or sock drawer as a scented sachet. Something to think about, gift-wise, as the holidays loom. It’s a bit more fun than your standard candle or scented soap, in my opinion.
