With all of the lovely gifts Hallmark offers, it was only a matter of time before the company introduced a line of teas, candles, soaps, and accessories.

Introduced this year, the Crafters & Co. collection is available exclusively at Hallmark Gold Crown® stores and online at Hallmark.com. The products are made with the highest quality ingredients by companies who are passionate about how they do what they do.

Receiving the set of teas, candle, and soaps in the mail was a wonderful surprise on a dreary winter afternoon.

The teas, available in loose leaf form or in satchets, come in a pretty tin that can be reused once you’ve finished the tea. It’s much nicer than a regular old tea box, plus it looks elegant as a gift or displayed somewhere in your home.

When you open the canister, you are greeted by the message: “Hello, Gorgeous.” 

Hello Gorgeous

Why, hello to you, too! Feels nice to be appreciated! That put a smile on my face.

I brewed a cup of the Mornin’ green tea using a satchet. After seeping for three minutes, the tea was ready. (Note the Hallmark Gold Crown emblems on the tea bag’s tag!)

It is one of the more delicate green teas I have had, which I like– I don’t like a green tea that is too strong or has flavors of lemon or other citrus fruits.

It tastes like green tea I’ve had at a Chinese food restaurant…which makes sense after reading the back of the tin:

Mornin’ is a velvety smooth green tea with distinctive ‘umami’ notes brought to you from our farmer friends in the pristine Guangxi region of South China. Mornin’ is crafted to have minimal grassy flavor and no bitterness.

Both the hand soap and the bar soap feature the line’s Ocean scent. The fragrance is to die for. It smells like the ocean breeze on a summer day, mixed with a handsome man’s cologne as he walks by you at the mall.

It is sophisticated, yet gentle enough that only a hint of the scent stays behind on your hands after you wash them. I kept smelling my hands after I used the soap. It is delicious.

This is definitely a soap that I will be saving for guests or putting it by a sink where I get to use it and it isn’t wasted on unappreciative children or husbands…so I guess the kitchen sink, since I’m the primary dish-washer.

(True story…last night my four-year-old asked me if my “talent” was washing dishes. Sounds about right, I guess.)

And the bar soap? Well, for now that is going to sit pretty in my powder room cabinet, on display for all guests to see. It’s just too pretty to unwrap!

The candle I received was Eucalyptus Spa.

It smelled a little minty, with hints of the ocean. And like the Ocean-scented soaps, the Eucalyptus Spa fragrance reminds me of a cologne.

It is not fruity or floral in the slightest, and that’s how I like my candles. It is a clean, refreshing scent that will be enjoyed by both sexes.

It was powerful enough to scent my kitchen and living room areas and the fragrance lingered for quite awhile after I blew out the candle. I would love to walk into a house that smelled like this!

The packaging for all of the Crafters & Co. products is gorgeous enough that they don’t even need wrapping. You could simply bundle them in a basket with cellophane or just stick a festive bow on them.

Next time you’re looking for that special gift, check out Crafters & Co. at Hallmark…I guarantee the recipient won’t be disappointed.

    I just found your blog and think you are hilarious. I read through the entire 30 days of the Melissa Gorga book experiment. I used to love all the Real Housewives show but stopped watching at one point. Now I want to catch up on what’s happening. I shared a link to your experiment on my Facebook because I have some friends who we used to all text each other while watching the show. I have followed your blog on Bloglovin. 🙂 I can’t wait to read more.
