The art of gift giving

How many times have you spent too much money on the wrong gift because you can't find just the right thing, or have run out of time and/or patience? 

Charles Dudley Warner's observation in his book The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today:

"The excellence of a gift lies in its appropriateness rather than in it's value,"

It was part of a damning story about the greed, corruption, and commercialism of American society at the time, and still rings true today.

We're more likely to choose a gift that someone loves if we spend more time thinking about what they'd love.

If you're looking for a gift for someone, why not take a peek at the College Green Gift Set pages on our website? It features a collection of gift boxes packed with lovely things designed to make people have a better day - whether they need a good night's sleep, a mood boost or gorgeously scented home. 

The new College Green Luxury Facial Gift Set is a popular new addition to the range, containing a handmade natural soap, a selection of floral facial steams, a konjac natural sponge and rose quartz gua sha facial massager - a perfect papering box that would make a lovely Mother's Day gift. 

And if you're in a hurry, how about giving a College Green gift voucher so they can choose their own gift? College Green gift vouchers are available from £10-£100, making them ideal for a something small, a grand gesture & everything in between.

I'll be happy to add a personalised note added to your gift box - just let me know, there will be no extra charge 💕
