The holidays are coming. I don’t know about you, but I always have good intentions that end up turning in to a procrastination-filled disaster. I start thinking about the holidays a bit (okay…a small bit) in October, which is when the holiday freight train leaves the station. For those of us with kids, it really starts to hit the fan when all of the Fall “events” start. Halloween. Fall festivals. Bake sales. Thanksgiving. Holiday parties. Holiday performances. Ack…before you know it – boom – it’s the freakin’ holidays and you aren’t prepared. Happens to me every year.
I’m always trying to find gifts that are unique and out of the ordinary. Depending on the person, it can be really difficult. To add to the stress of the holidays, being thoughtful and creative when you’re under time constraints because you delayed shopping so long is a fast track to a panic attack.
Stocking stuffers are always last on my list when I shop. The week before Christmas rolls around and I’m like…crap…I forgot the stupid stocking stuffers. Often times it’s too late to do any online shopping. There’s Amazon Prime for last minute shopping, but since they have everything and the kitchen sink, it can be challenging to wade through all of the stuff. Can you say, overwhelming? Then I go out and buy a bunch of candy and other worthless shit that no one wants.
I’m a loyal follower of Ash Ambirge. I got introduced to her (not literally) through my blogging adventures. I signed up to get her emails because she has honest, straightforward advice for entrepreneurial Boss Babes. I absolutely LOVE her raw style and the fact that the tagline on her email is “For Babes With Balls”. My kinda gal. Now, here’s how Ash ties to stocking stuffers.
In one of her emails, she was talking about how to market yourself and get noticed. She called it “writing the book on it”. So if you’re doing something really well…you’re “writing the book on it”. Makes sense. Then, she mentioned a soap company that was “writing the book on it”. Huh? How can a soap company write the book on anything? I was curious and intrigued, so I clicked on the link and it took me to the Whiskey River Soap Company. And I started laughing out loud.
These soaps and candles are BRILLIANT! I mean, who in their 40’s wouldn’t want to cleanse themselves in the morning with a bar of soap for a midlife crisis to wash away the urge to buy a Corvette convertible?
Having an office holiday party? Be sure to fire up the awkward moments candle because I’m guessing there will be a lot of those after folks start boozing it up and start gossiping about each other.
Getting ready to go to your in-laws for the oh so enjoyable holiday dinner? They have a soap for that…it smells like you’ll never be good enough.
I think one of my favorites is the soap for hipsters…coffee, bacon and craft beer…smells like your beard. Genius.
These products are kinda like Ricky Gervais. Hilariously funny, but make you grit your teeth, cringe a little and think to yourself….mmmm…I can’t gift that to Aunt Bertha because it hits a liiiiittle too close to home. That’s what makes these soaps, candles and bath bombs so fabulous.
Whiskey River Soap Company has everything you need to make everyone’s holiday dreams come true. Queue the music…
What do y’all put in your stockings? Drop a line in the comments. I wanna know!
