Good Gifts in Small PackagesJune 7th, 2012 | Posted by in Notes from Vitabath
Did you ever wonder where the expression “Good things come in small packages” came from? We’ll leave that to the historians, but we do get the impression that it’s an old idea, the notion of especially wonderful things coming in small forms and daintily wrapped parcels, from chocolates and jewels to ring boxes and today’s thinnest-ever smart phones.
Smallness creates a sense of quality and specialness in a world somehow different than the ordinary one of every day life.
As we’ve been thinking about gifts for friends and family graduating this season, we’ve come across great gift ideas of all shapes, sizes, and price points, from practical ones that fix problems to symbolic ones that tell a story of congratulations and support. But, what’s most important in choosing a gift? Maybe just sending the right message. So as you think about the grad you’re buying for, think about what you want to say… perhaps…
• Your accomplishment matters. You deserve recognition and support, so here’s something I’ve selected, knowing what your plans are, to help make your entry into this next stage of life smooth sailing.
• Celebrate! Time to party, time to relax, time to luxuriate in the little (and big) indulgences that you’ve had to postpone and put low on the totem pole until now. Here’s a little something to help you take a moment to revel and enjoy. Because I know who you are and what you like, I have chosen something especially for you. (Sometimes, if we know the person well and share their tastes, we can shop for our selves and do very well by the recipient. In fact, most people do just that, no surprise there.)
Whether you’re mailing a gift across country or your new grad will be relocating, consider again that good things come in small packages. Vitabath gift sets, packaged more beautifully than ever, are sure to be appreciated by anyone moving into a dorm or starting a new job. New, improved formulas and the new Fragrance Collection are rich in skin nourishing antioxidants like Goji, Green Tea, and Pomegranate. A little gift from Vitabath says, “congratulations” just right. And lucky you, gift-giving time is a great time to stock up on small goodies for you, too.
