Soft Soap


I confess I’m a sucker for anything with the name Claus in it, and when my namesake is imprinted on the oh-so-luxe Claus Porto soaps, well, I have to have them. And gift them. These sets of mini soaps are perfect for Mother’s Day, or everyday hostess gifts.
Five mini soaps, $25; pastille boxes, $19 at And Company (122 S Ridge St, Rye Brook, 914-305-4029). Both are available in a range of colors.
