Back to School with Green Gift Baskets from That's Caring: Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/6) CLOSED

Monday, August 23, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Now that I have a good handle on the back to school madness, I am starting to think about teacher appreciation gifts. Yes, my kids' teachers work very hard all year, and I always try to find the perfect gifts to show how much we appreciate all they do.

I recently came across ThatsCaring.com, a green gift giving site. That's Caring uses environmentally friendly packaging and shipping practices. They have over 40 gift basket options to choose from ranging in price from $16.99 to $99.99. The baskets include bakery, gourmet, pasta, sweets and snacks, home and spa, and pet gifts.

I received the wonderful Tub Therapy Gift Basket - a selection of pampering eco-friendly items. The products in it come from The Enterprising Kitchen, a fair-trade, nonprofit enterprise that provides workforce development and support services for women working towards self-sufficiency and economic independence. Purchasing the Tub Therapy baskets supports this organization and its programs.

The gift basket includes:
  • body butter enriched with chamomile;
  • natural bar soap made from a blend of natural oils, including moisturizing shea butter, olive, palm, coconut, and soybean oils, as well as wheat germ oil, known for its soothing and antioxidant properties;
  • liquid hand soap;
  • bath salts scented with natural essential oils, and beautifully packaged in an organza bag with a wooden scoop;
  • shower gel;
  • soy candle tin.
I love soy candles and quality bath products, so the items in this gift basket were perfect for me. My favorite products are the body butter and bar soap - both do wonders for my dry skin! I like the seascape / citrus blossom scent. If you love lavender, the same basket is available in this scent as well. It would make a wonderful gift for a friend, your child's teacher, or anyone who likes a little pampering in an eco-friendly way.
