Have them treat their guests, and themselves, to pretty soaps that smell as good as they look.

We love everything that Hawkins New York creates or curates. If you ever find yourself in Hudson, New York or New York City, be sure to check out their shop Their Jackson Plate collection is no exception. Inspired by Abstract Impressionist Movement in New York from the 1940s, each plate is hand painted in Portugal in two options, black (featured here) or citron. While they are festive, think New Year's Eve or birthdays, they work just as your everyday set.
