Self-Care + Wellness

This section is full of incredible gift ideas for the self-care + wellness lover in your life. Everything from the best skincare sets to great aromatherapy candles + more. Create a real spa experience right in the comfort of your home!

LED Mask -- Having one of these masks for great skincare is definitely MUST! This one comes with a 7 color treatment and is FDA approved, and isn't as expensive of some others on the market. Truly a worthy buy!

Under Desk Treadmill -- This treadmill is genius and makes for a great way to multi-task by getting your exercise in while working at your desk. I'm hooked and it's so convenient. Great for walking or jogging----your choice!

Adjustable Pillow -- While this might seem basic, I promise that it's NEEDED. I can't tell you how many times as a side sleeper, I've waken up with extreme shoulder + neck pain. So, this adjustable pillow is worth it if you struggle with this too. And the cover is washable so it's easy!

Shower Steamers -- While this might seem non-relevant, I promise that it's NEEDED. If you've ever used a shower steamer (like the one from Vick's when you're sick), then you know how helpful it is especially for your airways. However, this set of aromatherapy shower steamers are amazing for relaxation and unwinding in the most simplest way.

Tea Lover Care Package -- I love a good care package, especially when it comes to teas. This amazing gift basket includes cozy socks, mug, Cedarwood Chai tea, cinnamon sticks, etc.

Candle Set -- When it comes to candles, I love a good luxury feel and scent. While I do have personal faves, however, my top brands are Chesapeake and NEOM.

Skincare Set -- I truly have fallen in love with skincare in the last few years and experimenting with some of the best brands while gaining education on the things truly NEEDED has opened my eyes to these skincare sets which make for amazing gifts. This Youth To The People set is one of my faves as well as this Sunday Riley set, Sunday Riley Power Couple Kit, and Laneige. Of course, growing up, this brand was a staple in my house and so adding this Vaseline Intensive Care set is worth adding!

Foodie + Kitchen Gifts

This section is full of amazing gift ideas for the ultimate foodie mom or woman in your life. Everything from the best kitchen appliances for a great "romanticizing of your life moment" to cooking tools to cookware + more.

Beast Blender -- Honestly, this is the blender that I use daily. This blender + hydration system is super compact, powerful, and works for a great on-the-go situation after a quick blend. Easy to clean and comes with a large capactiy + small capacity vessel. Definitely worth every penny!

Cast Iron Skillet -- A sturdy cast iron skillet is a MUST for every foodie and should be in every kitchen. My two faves are Le Creuset and Staub----both are worth their price, cooks things evenly, and come in beautiful colors! An investment piece that will live up to their return! You can definitely enjoy my Creamy Blackened Chicken with Tortellini and Creamy Tuscan 'Marry Me' Chicken

Food Processor -- Everyone needs a food processor. This kitchen appliance comes in handy for so many things from chopping veggies + fruit to making pie crusts, and more. I love the Cuisinart processor because it's sturdy and truly lasts. Plus, if you're a foodie like me, then having different sizes is a lifesaver!

Cookware -- When it comes to cookware, I'm always about quality first because this is the one thing that gets used the most. Honestly, there are so many great options, but I personally love + use this Caraway Set and Cuisinart Cookware Set for a nice standard silver look.

Air Fryer -- If you still haven't gotten your hands on one yet or your loved one is in need of an air fryer, then I highly recommend! This counterpart addition truly creates the best crispy foods minus the frying on the stove top debacle. Personally, I'm obsessed with this COSORI Air Fryer which has been a game changer for me. In addition, this Ninja Air Fryer and Instant Pot Air Fryer are great as well.

Vitamix Gold Series -- Another one of my favorite brand of blenders is the Vitamix series. This powerful appliance is professional-grade, with touch-screen controls, wireless connectivity, programmable timer, and holds a whole 64 ounces. A must have!

Orchids + Sweet Tea Cookbook -- Of course, if you're looking for a great cookbook for any beginner, intermediate, or advance cook or baker, then I recommend our Orchids & Sweet Tea Cookbook! It includes all plant-forward recipes with Jamaican + Southern flavors.

Unique + Functional Gifts

When it comes to the items in this section, it's full of fun, practical, and functional gifts that make for the perfect thing for everyday use. Everything from the infamous Stanley cup to furry throws and more.

Headband + Wristband Set -- While this might seem basic, I promise that it's NEEDED. One thing that was always a pet peeve was during my skincare routine and when washing my face, I'd often get my sleeves and hairline wet which makes things super messy. But this set truly saves the day--trust me!

Journal -- I know that everyone talks about having a journal, but it's really the best thing to have on hand. Whether you write down your thoughts daily or use it for notes during bible study or daily devotionals or just as a notepad in general----giving a quality journal is a great gift! I love this 6-Minute Diary, Prayer Journal for Women, and Inspirational Quote Journal.

Throw Pillow Covers -- If you love throw pillows, then you'll love these covers! I love these specifically because they are soft, velvety, and corduroy. Such a great buy!

Stanley Cup -- The rave is worth it. It's definitely worth the hype! I have a few Stanley cups and I love the fact that they come in different sizes, are spill-proof, and actually keep things cold/hot!

Plush Throw Blankets -- I seriously love a good furry, soft, plush throw blanket and it's definitely something to invest in. Whether you are investing in a throw for sitting on the couch, bed, in your office, or wherever-----you'll love this Everlasting Comfort Luxury Plush Blanket and Ultra Soft Throw Blanket.
