A bottle of handwash is the safe-but-dull gift I fall back on for the newly appointed teacher I know nothing about, the mysterious colleague I am allocated in Secret Santa or the relative with no discernable interests. No-one ever took offense at the suggestion they wash their hands, but equally, nobody ever felt giddy at the thought of a bottle of liquid soap. But just look at these dreamy bottles from textile and knitwear wizard Kaffe Fassett! Suddenly, a bottle of handwash (and possibly an accompanying one of hand lotion) is looking more of a must-have present than a make-do. The bottles are huge, the packaging is heavenly, with a colour-drenched botanical print that reminds me of the Erdem frock I once left behind in Selfridges, and the fragrance is like walking by a posh flower shop during wedding season.
