Shaffer LA’s – The Greta ($188.00):
As I’ve said before, bucket bags are huge this season and they’re definitely a trend to stay. This one from Shaffer LA is giving me life! Made in downtown Los Angeles from Italian leather, the Greta carries all my basics — wallet, phone, keys, and maybe a lipstick or powder compact — but is small enough to be worn as a chic little shoulder bag on a fun girls’ night out. — Gabi
Meditation Studio by Gaiam App ($2.99)
Much like Yoga Studio, this app is designed to guide users through meditation sessions with a number of options designed for your specific mood. You can customize your session by using the slick interface to add background sounds, or opt for just an instructor-led session.
There are more than 160 meditations of different lengths to fit your time and lifestyle, including 2-, 5-, 10-, and 15-minute meditations. So if you’re a fan of long meditations, this app might not be the one for you.
The app also features a wide scope of meditation collections for many of life’s challenges, whether you want to boost your confidence before a date, calm your nerves before an upcoming presentation, or simply to quiet your mind at the end of the day.
But, truthfully, meditation apps can cost astronomical prices and this $3 option might be the perfect introduction to meditation without breaking the bank. — Scott
Be Mixed ($33.00 for a case)
Are you ready for a tasty cocktail without the fuss of having to be a mixologist? Well, Be Mixed is changing the way we entertain and enjoy a refreshing cocktail.
Launched in August 2015 by two 29-year-old Harvard Business School graduates (Jennifer Ross and Cristina Ros Blankfein) who were tired of settling for vodka sodas, each convenient single serve bottle of Be Mixed provides the complex flavor of mixology-inspired cocktails or mocktails – anytime, anywhere – without any added sugar, calories or artificial ingredients.
With flavors that include cucumber mint, ginger lime and margarita, Be Mixed is the go-to for summer 2016 entertaining! We tried out all the flavors during an office happy hour last week while all were delicious, the cucumber mint was the all-around favorite.
This is such a great concept. The single-serve bottles make it simple to prepare delicious cocktails so you can spend less time fussing and more time enjoying. It’s as easy as a shot of your favorite spirit and a bottle of Be Mixed over ice! — Michael
Chalk Ink (Pricing varies)
Are you looking for a unique Father’s Day gift or a unique way to leave your roommate or loved one notes.
Chalk Ink is perfect for handmade presents and around the home decor, or better yet, get Dad a chalkboard so you can leave him notes of appreciation all year round!
Chalk Ink recently introduced BRAND NEW chalkboards in different colors for use with their Chalk Ink Markers (less of a mess than actual chalk).
Heading off to college this fall? They’re a perfect way to add a pop of color and fun to any college dorm room. The boards are an easy way for roommates to leave each other notes and for students to quickly organize their day and remember important dates and assignments. — Michael
The Drop Canned Rosé Wine ($21.00 for a 4-pack)
The Drop Canned Rosé Wine ($21.00 for a 4-pack) – With Memorial Day coming up, it’s time to head to the coast for some sun, sand and surf. Glass bottles are banned at a lot of the beaches in my neighborhood, so I’m really thankful for things like The Drop’s canned rosé. Light and fruity, it’s the perfect beverage to sip on while lounging by the shore. No corkscrew or cups necessary! — Gabi
Load Failure T-Shirts ($19.99)
Looking for a fun novelty t-shirt to give as a gift? Look no further than Load Failure’s cleaver t-shirt line. These shirts are sure to make your dad or hubby chuckle. I’m talking about the good hearty kind of laughter. He will wear his Load Failure proudly because well, who doesn’t want to make a statement with not-so-subtle humor?
These are not your typical silly shirts in those unflattering boxy shapes that always seem to look loose and too large. These shirts combine both humor and fashion with sayings like “Mr. Awesome,” “This is my Drinking Shirt,” and “Best Husband Ever.” — Michael
SilkCut Hip Hugger Panty by Tani ($35.00)
I swear to whatever god you believe in that this will be the most comfortable thing you have ever worn on your body. Knit in Europe using lightweight Micor Modeal Air fabric, these undies feel softer and smoother than silk. I just want to lounge around the house in them all day! — Gabi
Tic Tac Minion Mints ($19.99, for a 3-pack)
After having their last batch of limited edition Minion Mints sell out almost as fast as Kylie Jenner’s lip kits, Tic Tac is bringing it back in a fittingly new banana flavor. Like last time, each mint is printed with an adorable Minion character. They just might be too cute to eat! — Gabi
