Ideas for packaging handmade soap

Making handmade soap was all well and fun, but I became as giddy as a school girl when the time came to package it all up for gifting.

A sweet little presentation makes a gift all the more personal, don’t ya think?  No need to wait for a special occasion to gift some handmade soap . . . your love will “bubble” over any time of the year.

Be sure to check out my post and video on how to make Natural Goat Milk and Honey Soap.

But for now, let me show you 3 simply beautiful ways to package handmade soaps.

IDEA #1:  Throw it in a bag, and tie it with a bow.

Find bags and tie that compliment the tones of the soap.  With my milk and honey soap, I went with subtle neutral colors.  You can choose to hide the contents of the package with darker bags, let the goodies barely peek through with semi see-through bags, or display in all its beauty with clear bags.  All the above supplies I found at Hobby Lobby, or I found these options.

IDEA #2:  Wrap with parchment paper, tie and top.

I use parchment paper to wrap handmade soaps and breads when gifting.  Just cut a long strip not as wide as the soap, tape the ends in the back and then wrap with some natural looking hemp string.  I love this brown parchment, found from Grove Collaborative.

Add something on top like small florals, a tag or a note.

IDEA #3:  Just wrap it with string.

When in doubt, keep it simple.  Wrap tightly around and around, creating a layered effect with the string.  Finish it off with a bow.

Personally, I’ve always felt that when packaging a gift, less is more.  I think that about a lot of things, actually.

Your careful attention to simple beauty will inspire and delight your lucky recipient.

I’m sure of it!

  1. There are different ideas which comes to mind to pack a handmade soap as handmade soap is really good and needs to pack well by looking at your post I have learned well how to pack well and decorate it in good condition.

  2. I love your ideas! They are so simple and beautiful! I just started making handmade soaps that I learned from a local livelihood training and the only problem I have is marketing it and packaging it. Thank you for this!
