Here at Dear Ava our vision was to create a way to commemorate our precious relationships with our mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, friends, and anyone else with whom we have a special bond. It wasn’t just about the jewelry, but rather the message that helps us memorialize these everlasting bonds into a single joyous moment of gift giving. That’s why we plan to slowly and deliberately expand our product line into more than just jewelry. While we stand behind the quality of our jewelry pieces, we want to offer other options to our customers in addition to this.
Introducing the Dear Ava Spa Gift Box
We are starting things off by adding a spa gift set that will be sure to please any special woman in your life. We found that there are many options for gift boxes available on the internet and through large corporate brands. To be honest, we even tried some of these gift sets ourselves and frankly, we were displeased with the quality and presentation of many of them. In particular, the mass-produced bars of soaps and candles didn’t have the right scent or consistency. The bath bombs often had artificial added scents. The products came from unknown places of origin.
The Making of the Dear Ava Spa Gift Box
Everything is made in a food-grade commercial kitchen in Santa Rosa, CA
Our team reached out to a variety of soapmakers and candlemakers across the United States. They were all awesome to work with and we ultimately decided to team up with one of our family friend’s companies based out of Santa Rosa, CA who specializes in hand-made skincare and bath products. We already loved the products they created so it made perfect sense to carry their products in our gift box. I think that the result really speaks for itself – it will be hard for you to find handmade soap, hand-poured candles, handmade bath bombs, and hand-poured lip balm anywhere that’s this good! Let’s break down what comes in the box.
LAVENDER HAND & BODY SOAP
This luscious bar of lavender soap is hand-made from a moisturizing blend of coconut oil, palm oil, and safflower oil. Crushed lavender naturally gives it a beautiful marbled color and hypnotic scent.
NOURISHING LIP BALM
This lip balm uses natural ingredients for supreme moisture and protection for your lips. Olive oil, beeswax, mango butter, peppermint, and lime blend together for a subtly sweet scent and work together to soothe your lips from cracks and dryness.
LAVENDER SCENTED HAND-POURED CANDLE
We use high-grade soy wax to create this hand-poured candle in a deep 4oz dish with a windowed clear top (to cover the candle while not in use). The candle is rated at a generous 20-hour burn time. As with the soap, we used crushed lavender to scent the candle. It will fill the room with a relaxing aura, the perfect pairing with a warm bath.
MOISTURIZING BATH BOMB
This bath bomb is all about moisture! One of the things that we didn’t like about many other bath bombs we tried is that they leave the skin too dry. We used a sort of “secret family recipe” that combines cocoa butter, witch hazel, and colloidal oatmeal (a time-tested home remedy) to leave your body revitalized. We infused it with essential oils to give it a pleasant scent without being too overpowering.
Spa Gift Boxes for Every Occasion
This is our first fit box set but we surely plan to create more in the future with different items to choose from. We have created gift boxes with included cards for a variety of our most popular gifting occasions and recipients:
