Happy Birthday To Us Event - That's Caring Tub Therapy Basket {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

Gift Baskets are a wonderful way to let someone know you care but they are usually made of materials that are wasteful and harmful to the environment such as plastics that sit in landfills for years.  That's Caring is a company that uses trays and baskets that are 100% reusable and recyclable, wrap that is biodegradable and they are shipped with carbon offsets!  Now you can send gift baskets that not only make the recipient feel good knowing that you care about them but also knowing that you care about the environment.  That's Caring offers over 40 types of gift baskets such as Bakery, Business Gifts, Gourmet, Heart Healthy, Home & Spa and Pets!  There's a gift basket for every personality and every occasion!


That's Caring was co-founded by a couple of entrepreneurs, Jamie Pritscher and Tim Walter, who wanted to make a difference.  Here's what they have to say about what inspired them to start That's Caring:

We started That’s Caring because we’re passionate about doing right by the environment. Half the books on our bedside tables have the word “green” in the title, and we’re dedicated to doing whatever we can to help out—from participating in community events to thinking twice before we toss something in the trash. We’re not eco-saints by any stretch of the imagination—we have our fair share of environmental bad habits —but we try to do the green thing when we can. 

That’s Caring was a great chance to combine our environmental enthusiasm with an equally great product: gift baskets that any person would jump at the chance to get. We’ve gone on an eco-expedition of sorts to find the highest quality, most environmentally responsible products and to institute the greenest possible procedures. Every little detail of our products and our processes, right down to the ribbon we use to tie up the baskets, has been exhaustively vetted for Earth friendliness. So while we personally may not be greenest kids on the block, That’s Caring and its products may very well qualify for that honor. We like to think we’re doing our little part for the Earth and giving others an avenue to do so as well.

I just love the fact that they are honest about not being perfect environmentally, but they try to do the best they can to be "green".  That is how I live my life; recycle, reuse as much as possible and just be aware of what resources I am using.  If we all just did a few of these things, I believe the planet would be much healthier.

What Did I Think?

The gift basket I received is just lovely and the products are wonderful!  I was sent the Tub Therapy basket in SeaScape/Citrus Blossom.  Here's what is included in this basket:

Body Butter (1) is enriched with chamomile, known for its anti-inflammatory and skin soothing properties.
Natural Bar Soap (1) is
made from a blend of natural oils, including moisturizing shea butter, olive, palm, coconut, and soybean oils, and wheat germ oil, known for its soothing and antioxidant properties
Liquid Hand Soap (1)
is delicately blended to gently moisturize while it cleanses
Bath Salts (1)
have long been sought for their detoxifying properties. Scented with natural essential oils. Specially packed in an exquisite Fair Trade organza bag with a natural wood scoop.
Shower Gel (1)
has soothing properties of natural essential oils making this shower gel an inviting way to relax, day or night. Convenient and gentle enough for daily use.
Soy Candle (1) is
clean burning and environmentally friendly rounding out the relaxation plan. These tins are perfect for home or travel.

The high quality products in this basket come from The Enterprising Kitchen, a fair-trade, nonprofit enterprise that provides workforce development and support services for women working towards self-sufficiency and economic independence. Purchasing the Tub Therapy baskets supports this organization and its worthy programs. For more information, visit theenterprisingkitchen.com.

While I haven't been able to use all of the products in the basket, what I have used is great.  The products smell heavenly and utilize all natural ingredients and essential oils for fragrance.  If I were to receive this gift basket from a friend or colleague, I would be very impressed with the thoughtfulness that went into the packaging itself as well as the unique products.  Everything was placed in a pleasant arrangement and held together with glue tabs so nothing shifted in transit.  The products were all sealed without any leaking which seems to occur more often than not when shipping across the country.  These gift baskets are sophisticated enough that you could send them as business gifts but also packaged with such love and care that any of them would make a wonderful birthday gift to a loved one.  They are also fairly reasonable in price ranging from $16.99 to $99.99 for the very large assortments.

How Can You Get One?

You can purchase a That's Caring basket directly from the website.  There are over 40 basket options with full descriptions of each basket and what is included in them.  You can also win one right here!  That's Caring has been very generous and offered to send 3 of my readers a basket of their choice (up to $60 value)!
