gift guide: fall out of summer in style

the 'fall out of summer in style' gift guide

ah, last month of summer. we meet again. these summer gifts are equal parts function + style, and will keep you fresh while you transition from summer to fall.

let me just start by saying that I wear this fragrance every single day and people literally stop me on the subway to ask what it is. it smells earthy, fresh + clean and that’s not even the best part….it’s anti-stress [hence, functional]. a couple sprays + some deep breaths for a quick reset during high stress times. 

we’ve all seen that marilyn monroe photo of the dress blowing in the wind. unfortunately, we’ve also been there…strong gust of wind + up goes your dress. it doesn’t quite become a famous photo but it does become a free bum shot for the masses…no thanks. this light weight sticker is your windy day fashion fix. 

to borrow the words from our favorite creator of #nicethings, this best-selling, cult favorite candle smells like summer + suntans. with 60 hours of burn time, you’ll be able to reminisce on those summertime smells + pretend it’s beach season even in the dark depths of winter. 

one botany box comes with four (yes, four!) adorable little succulents. you can choose to have them in a ceramic pot or biodegradable pot [yay earth!] the perfect addition to your windowsill, desk, or coffee table. bonus? your succulents come with [paper free] care instructions so you basically *cant* kill your plant.

cuyana - black silk scoop tank ($135.00)

fun fact: cuyana's nyc store launch was the first event we attended after launching blankbox. karla + shilpa (the founders) were manning the cash register, so we bought a piece to introduce ourselves. little did we know we'd be resisting the urge to wear this simple but elegant staple....every day.

AUrate new york - gold huggies ($180.00)

a touch of class, a touch of sass...and basically a hug for your earlobes. the gold is the highest quality; these are a recent purchase, but in over a year of stacking their rings, not one has a scratch or blemish. simple, stylish, and a hint of elegance will elevate even the old 'im pretending i just worked out' look.

drunk elephant skincare - blankbox gift guide the fill

drunk elephant - the littles ($90.00)

drunk elephant has completely changed my skin. to say i'm obsessed would be an understatement; if they gave $$$ for referrals we'd be jetsetting to bora bora and cruising around on our yacht. the line is pretty pricey (but so worth it), so the littles is the perfect way to try the products + get #drunkinlove.

wine is my valentine gift guide

valentine's day gift guide: the 'wine is my valentine' gift box

if you’re like us, you’ve had many different types of valentine nights: candlelit dinners at tables dressed in white linens, cracking open a cookbook and cooking in pajamas with a long term partner, and last but certainly not least, stretching out on the couch alone in fuzzy socks binge watching romcoms clutching a bottle of wine for dear life (turns out large cheese pizzas were not just for kevin mcallister, right?) 

how ever you’re spending valentine’s day this year, remember to participate in the tradition of completely forgetting a holiday’s history and commercializing the sh*t out of it! in other words, valentine’s day gifts are always necessary, whether it’s for you, your lover, or your galentine. p.s. our gift guide is extra sweet because all gifts included are from female founded brands(!) p.p.s – self-gifting encouraged.
