Crafters & Co soap

My package of goodies from Hallmark couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

Jetlagged and thrown back into the chaos of the holiday season after two glorious weeks in Germany and Prague with Viking Cruises, I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

After taking one whiff of those Ocean scented soaps, above, from the beautiful Crafters & Co. line, though, I felt my shoulders relax and I was able to breathe again.

Crafters & Co. is a curated line of high-quality, artisan products that are available exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown® stores and at Hallmark.com. All the products in the bath and body line use natural ingredients, recycled and reusable materials and vegetable-based products grown by American farmers.

Crafters & Co candle

This Eucalyptus-scented Spa Candle has made my house smell so good, I’m going to have to buy another one when it burns down. Unfortunately, the glass around it broke during shipping but I just place it on a small plate and it’s fine.

I like to light the candle when I sit down to a cup of tea.

Crafters & Co tea

I think it’s great that Crafters & Co. offers tea lovers both loose leaf and sachet options. My husband is a huge green tea drinker, and he’s become a big fan of this Mornin’ flavor.

I’m a big fan of the affirmation card that accompanies it.

Crafters & Co Hello Gorgeous

All of the products from Crafters & Co. are designed to help you have a great day. There are so many more scents and flavors to choose from, and the gorgeous packaging featuring artwork from the Hallmark archives makes these ideal stocking stuffers and holiday gifts.
