What could be a more ideal choice for a gift than something in the color purple? It has so many layers of meaning that you can easily have fun with it!

After all, purple is the color of royalty, having once been something only afforded by the upper class.  So gifting someone something in the color purple can demonstrate just how much you value them.

Purple isn’t all prim and proper, though. It can be rather naughty too.  Purple language is commonly understood to be profane, shocking, or at least a bit ribald.  It’s the color of the risqué and things that are a little bit wicked. It’s the color of wine, witches and Bacchus; of revelry, salaciousness and excess. It’s juicy and fruity and sexy and it smells wonderful.  One could say that it’s the perfect color for indulgence. And aren’t gifts supposed to be a little indulgent?

And all the way on the other end of the spectrum of shades of purple, you’ll find delicate butterflies, spring flowers and sachets of lavender that ooze sweetness and femininity.
