“We recently added a few more products including nail polishes, lip care products and some new scents. I absolutely love their fast drying nail polishes and my favorite is the hand recovery – I feel like I have baby skin when I use this product.” Say Michiko Seto owner of Lewes Gifts. “It simultaneously in a few minutes exfoliates and moisturizes the hand and gets rid of aged skin cells and enriches the newly revealed skin.”

About Crabtree & Evelyn

From a small, family-run business to an international luxury brand, Crabtree & Evelyn has stayed true to our vision of transforming everyday rituals into extraordinarily pleasurable experiences. Crabtree & Evelyn was founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey. The name Crabtree & Evelyn was inspired by John Evelyn a 17th century botanist and George Crabtree a horticulturist of the period.

Their signature logo, the English Crab Apple Tree, prized for its lovely form and usefulness in home apothecary.  Every single part of the Crap Apple Tree can be harvested and used for feeding and healing. It represents the beauty and the natural goodness in our brand. “Together the ancient tree and the wise botanist meet harmoniously in our name…”

The very origins of Crabtree & Evelyn began as “The Soap Box” at Truc – a tiny shop in a corner of the famous Brattle Theatre in Cambridge Massachusetts, owned by Cyrus Harvey, which stocked a fascinating collection of soaps from around the world. And in 1972, all products – soaps, bath gels, lotions and colognes – traded for the first time under the name of ‘Crabtree & Evelyn, London.’

Initially a small, family run business, the first store specialized in fine soaps sourced from around the world. One man's passion for travel coupled with an inherent desire for natural products, set the foundation for creating an international brand renowned the world over for its fragrances, body care products, fine foods and beautifully packaged gifts. It was Evelyn's personal motto 'explore everything, keep the best' that resonated with Cyrus and remains at the heart of the brand today.

The Crabtree & Evelyn product range comprises fragrances, bath and shower gels, soaps, home spa products, body lotions, hand creams, home fragrance and specialty food products.. The ethos of the company remains, seeking out the most beneficial ingredients inspired by nature to create a range of products which make a world of difference. A blend of the very best of nature and science coupled with tradition and innovation.

Lewes Gifts is located at 118 2nd Street, Lewes, DE. Lewes Gifts store hours are daily from 10-5 pm with extended hours in the summer. To learn more call 302-644-7880 or visit or follow us on facebook.
