Review of Beth and Olivia Handmade products

In Christmas 2020, Nals decided to get some bits and bobs #supportlocal

I was going to a new job and wanted to give my colleagues a little something.

I hawed and hemmed: Gift cards? Candles? Homemade harissa? Chocolates?  I wasn’t sure what to give.  Due to le pandemic¹, my options were limited.    

So I started researching local businesses.  I happened upon Beth & Olivia 🔗 handmade products.   

Not Amazon² is also a good site to explore local businesses. 

Their Story

The story 🔗 behind the company is amazing. Annie, fashion designer by trade and training, decided to make sparkly jewelry that her daughters Beth and Olivia could wear.  Annie also created a suitable skincare product for one of her toddler’s eczema. Commercial options weren’t cutting it.  Annie’s bodycare line was born. 

Unboxing

When you unbox, a lovely scent permeates the air.  Crisp sheets of toile tissue, some paper packing and a personal handwritten note from Annie greet you.  ♡ them personal touches!

My orders

I got Missy R: bath squares³ (Peppermint Chamomile, Orange Eggnog & Chai), hand butter (Orange Eggnog) and hand sani spray (Lavendar).  Peppermint squares were her fave.  She loved the idea of the body butter stick: easy for travel, not greasy, will not spill in your handbag! 

I got colleagues: soaps (Earl Gray & Chai), hand butters (Love & Subdued) and lip balms.  They loved everything.  Due to respiratory and skin issues, a couple of these folks are very particular about their products. 

I got my mom: hand sani (Lavender) as well as the foot soak and foot butter (Tea Tree Neem). 

I got multiples of things to give as stocking stuffers… and a couple Squares for me. The Chai bath square is my fave.

Annie has a suite of offerings, including beautiful paper and wedding products. Gift wrapping or local pick up are available.
