Soap - less plastic waste. They look nicer for hampers too. I like green tea or lavendar ones.

I’d personally rather receive a bar of soap. I love the smell of carbolic soap! But others which would be nice to gift would be some from the body shop, lush, fresh or aveda. Lush make a ‘mechanics‘ pumice type of soap (in the shape of a spanner!) which is great

OneeyedRaven it does have fluorphlogopite in the mechanic soap (Lush use synthetic mica to make things glittery rather than using actual glitter / mica)

Bar of nice soap is my preference. A particularly good one is Sanctuary Salt Scrub it’s a bit pricey but a lovely treat.

hand soap is definitely more presentable. You can make them yourself too, which is fun, and much more personal

A bar of soap looks nicer, but who actually uses it? I don't at home and I find it annoying when hotels provide it over liquid soap. But a unique bar would make a good soap to someone who uses it.

Bar of soap lasts longer, but it's not that convenient these days.
