They look like shiny toys to play with, but they’re even better: they’re SOAPS! Dallas company The Pig and The Peacock handcrafts delectable soaps into darling shapes. My personal favorites include the Rainbow Robots set, which comes with 20 robots, each with a color-coordinated wind-up key for $28; the Shark Soap with a squirt shark in his own little ocean pod for $3.50; the Gun Soap collection with a trio of little gun-shaped bath buddies for $4.50; and the slightly more serious but aromatic Lychee Red Tea bar with olive oil and aloe for $5. Everyone uses soap. (Or should.) Most people like soap. Why not get a handful of these soaps for everyone on your shopping list? There’s a shape for every personality, and they’re sure to make your giftees smile. Available on Etsy.
