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.

‘celebrate the women in your life’ gift guide

the 'celebrate the women in your life' gift box

as if we needed another reason to celebrate women, march is women’s history month and home to international women’s day! naturally, we’ll all be needing thoughtful gift ideas for the women in our lives – mothers, sisters, best friends, girlfriends, mentors, inspirations, you name it – okay, okay also ourselves. you’ve convinced us. 

whoever the lucky recipients may be, here’s a guide to curating the perfect gift to celebrate international women’s day + all the women in your life. like our february gift guide, each of these products is created by a female founder so you can support women by supporting your women. as always, self-gifting encouraged.

grace bonney coffee table book - blankbox gift guide the fill

'in the company of women' by grace bonney ($17.21)

catherine's sister gifted her this book for christmas and it's since become one of her favorite 'coffee table books with content you can actually read'. from media titans to tattoo artists, grace bonney's collection of interviews with 100 creative women will leave you inspired.

cuyana tank - blankbox gift guide the fill

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 - blankbox gift guide the fill

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.
