Reusable silicone food storage bags and containers

Zipped top

$ 89.99

I love all of these! They’re perfect for replacing single-use zipper bags for packing lunches, creating individual snack servings, keeping leftovers, and other random storage needs. The thoughtful design includes a stand function (flat bottom) which is convenient for filling them, and they can be nested when empty. They are dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe, repelling food odors and removing lid chaos with their easy zipper closure. You can buy individual coins or invest in different sets. And, of course, all of this is so much better for our planet!

Moisturizing coconut milk for the body

If you’re looking for a scented ‘just off the beach’ moisturizer, this is the one for you. I love using this moisturizer all year round, especially on a cold day when I could really enjoy a vacation, at least mentally. A spoonful of this luxury lotion instantly transports you to an island, even for a minute. Plus, the included coconut oil really soothes dry skin.

Torin 5 Road Running Shoe

As a longtime competitive runner, I know that any old shoe won’t do when you’re counting the miles. So for my really long days of running or walking weekends in New York, I lace up a pair of Altras. These sneakers are designed for runners, walkers, and really anyone on the go – they have Goldilocks support, are really light as a feather, withstand tons of pavement kicks, and the toe box is specially designed to accommodate natural movements of the toes and the spread this happens when you are standing! Plus, they have tons of cute colors and are stylish enough to wear even when you’re not working out.

Shade Slick Vegan Tinted Lip Oil

I’ve always loved adding a pop of color to my lips, but the pandemic has forced me to put away my favorite lipsticks in favor of lipstick (no one likes chapped lips under a mask!). Then i found Deserves that tinted lip oils and haven’t looked back. Not only are they packed with hydrating ingredients like shea butter and jojoba oil, but they offer * just * the right amount of color to create the perfect pout. Think of them as a cross between your favorite lip gloss (no sticky feel) and lip tint (minus dry lips after wearing). I have these lip oils in five colors, but sangria (a deep berry shade) just might be my favorite.

Maple Keto Waffles Cereal

Crunchy catalina

$ 11.70

My partner is a low carb keto-Atkinsish type, and honestly he’s excited about the low carb versions of foods that frankly make me feel a little sorry for him. But one day I tried her Catalina Crunch cereal and I was like, oh wait, okay now! With no artificial ingredients or sweeteners and lots of plant protein and fiber, the fact that it’s low in carbs almost seems out of place. It doesn’t have the exact texture of “regular” cereals, but it stays crisp longer and tastes great. Her favorite is the maple waffle, while I prefer the fruity flavor. So now we are fighting for it.

Detangling brush

Detangling brush

$ 17.99

I have thick curly hair, and when it comes to untangling tangles, I can’t live without this handy detangling brush. It has widely spaced flexible bristles that glide through my hair without breaking or damaging my strands. I also like the super-wide handle, which gives me a comfortable, solid grip to hold while detangling my hair in the shower. This is a must have for anyone with waves, curls, and coils!

– Shauna Beni, Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Ecomm


Jute & Joy Lavender & Honey

I love that this body scrub pillow contains aromatherapy lavender honey soap so you can wash and cleanse the skin (and pamper yourself a bit) at the same time. In addition, the jute cushion is biodegradable, so it can be composted at the end of its life!

– April Franzino, Beauty Director


Linen sheet set

Parachute house

$ 169.00

I recently moved to an island and wanted the perfect Zen heavenly bedroom decor so I decided to try the Parachute white linen duvet cover and sheets. And let me tell you, they didn’t disappoint! The texture is light and breathable, and the delicate color of white linen blends perfectly with my natural wood decor and plants. I really feel like I’m sleeping in a cloud and I’ll never own another pair of sheets again!

Fluid Ounce Body Milk

Andalusian Natural

A body lotion, for me, has to do two things: smell good and immediately make me forget that I applied the lotion. Who wants to be fat for the next hour? This super hydrating body lotion, which does both with panache, is keeping me afloat right now. Plus, its medicinal-looking packaging makes me feel vaguely European when I use it – how beautiful.

Instant Pot Pro 10 in 1 pressure cooker

Instant pot

$ 119.95

I became obsessed with this Instant Pot four years ago, and it remains one of my most useful kitchen staples to this day. The moment that converted me – cooking a tender beef brisket in just an hour and a half (a recipe that takes eight hours in a slow cooker!). While the Instant Pot is labeled as a pressure cooker, it’s more of a magical multicooker: think tender beef stew, perfectly cooked lentils, hot chicken tagine, creamy risotto, and more. It comes with a number of features including pan handles, additional settings, and an LCD display.

Home Fragrance Reed Diffuser

Brooklyn candle

$ 42.00

This Fern + Moss diffuser is touted as a must-have for nature lovers, and in all its forms (room mist, candle and beyond) it makes my home smell divine. The surprisingly powerful diffuser turned my living room into a sage-lavender-spruce paradise, and it’s worth splurging to treat friends and family while on vacation.

Cauliflower crackers


$ 23.94

With these cauliflower crackers, my son is a little closer to his dream of eating only crackers, all the time, because I feel much better putting them back than some options without butter and no nutrition. Our family loves the variety of Everything Bagel seasonings, so tasty!

– Sarah Smith, editor-in-chief


Garden of Jewels (Merry Christmas)

Lula’s garden

$ 44.00

I found these adorable succulent home gardens and everyone has one on my holiday shopping list. I have one sitting on my windowsill and, especially as winter approaches, it’s so nice (and honestly low maintenance) to have this in my bedroom while I work. It’s the perfect price for a gift (ranging from $ 28- $ 62), you can choose from a variety of included holiday-themed packaging, and they make a treasured and thoughtful holiday gift for friends and family. family.

Rescue Balm – Post-Blemish Repair Cream

Powerful patch

$ 12.99

As a long-time acne sufferer, I have tried my fair share of spot treatments, and most of them dried out my skin, messed up my pillow, or just didn’t work out. all. I finally found one that is not only effective but disappears into the skin, leaving behind a hydrated, soothing spot instead of a scaly, inflamed scab. It also helps prevent those pesky post-pop scars. 10/10 would recommend.

Apple Cinnamon Bites


$ 20.00

These energy bites have so many benefits. Delicious and full of flavor (the lemon and coconut ones are my favorite, with the apple and cinnamon right after), with a short ingredient list (three or four ingredients, all organic), no added sugar and a good amount of protein. Cute packaging too! I also like the company, which prioritizes sourcing from American farms and is committed to putting the planet first.
