THE 5 BEST GIFTS FOR NEWLYWEDS

THE 5 BEST GIFTS FOR NEWLYWEDS

It's wedding season! Let's deviate from the registry or envelope of cash (still appreciated) and choose something memorable.

 

Protective Skincare

Our travel set of Restore is perfect for the jet setting couple heading off to their honeymoon. Ready for a romantic beach getaway or a jungle adventure, this is one gift they'll be thanking for you for years to come. 

Couples Massage

Weddings can be stressful, so why not treat the newly hitched to a nice relaxing couples massage? Most spas offer gift certificates for a couples package, or you can try an app or website that provides an in home service. This way, they can relax in the comfort of their own home while a fully vetted and trained professional massages the tension away. 

Explore Pheromones

Help them amp up the romance. Bespoke is made from a decade old proprietary botanical pheromone mixed with organic oils.  The potent blend is hand crafted in small batches and designed to heighten female sensuality. You can purchase pre-mixed blends or create a customized version. 

Monthly Subscriptions

Who doesn’t love a good care package? Monthly subscriptions come in many shapes and sizes for a variety of prices and timeframes. You can choose the classic boxes like craft beer, coffee and snacks, or opt for something a little more unique. Monthly flower arrangements to brighten up the home, international gourmet food boxes to take their taste buds around the world, and tastefully curated bundles of art are just a few to choose from. These days you can get just about anything sent to you. 

Energy Blankets

This isn’t your great-grandma's blanket (though I'm sure she would appreciate it!) Yaasa blankets are made with infrared yarns which increases circulation, helps with temperature regulation, and boosts cell recovery. These soft, durable, American made blankets are meant for just about anywhere - take it to the park for a bbq with friends, to the beach for a picnic, or use it to cozy up on the couch at home.

4 WAYS TO STAY HEALTHY THIS SUMMER

4 WAYS TO STAY HEALTHY THIS SUMMER

Use sun protection with SPF

This is a given for anytime of the year, but its important to stay on top of it in the summer when the sun is stronger and we are (hopefully) outside more soaking up that good Vitamin D. 

Be aware of what you are putting on your skin. More and more companies are advertising safe sunscreens, but always read the label. Make sure you are being protected from UVA and UVB rays. Stay away from ingredients like oxybenzone* and octinoxate, in favor of zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, or even the micro algae Astaxanthin. Try the skincare line Alles, made with organic ingredients and natural UV protectors. 

Just think, if you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin. 

 

Drink and eat your water

Rising temperatures means sweating more, and that means losing valuable hydration for your body. Humans are expected to drink about 15.5 cups of water** per day. This is a daunting task, so to help yourself, out, incorporate foods rich in water content into your meals. Try, celery, cucumbers and watermelon to replenish, but be conscientious of the sugar content there!  

In addition to losing hydration, you’re also losing sodium and electrolytes through sweating. Coconuts, bananas, raisins, avocados and dates, all contain potassium and will help bring electrolytes back into your system. 

 

Wear performance enhancing fibers in your clothes like UV protection, cooling and anti-microbial yarns. Sometimes you might forget sunscreen, and since it’s impossible to stay inside all the time, it’s important that what you are wearing helps protect you. Look for words like ‘air’, ‘fresh’, or ‘linen’ – a natural cooling and quick dry fabric. UV protection is found in many sports wear, so now your athleisure has another benefit. 

 

Get a check up

It’s important to make sure your physical and mental health are taken care of. Our task laden days are bombarded with an onslaught of consistent information, which can leave the body and mind a little off kilter. Make sure you book an appointment with your dentists, gynecologists, mental health specialists and check in with yourself this summer. 

Remember, be kind to yourself. You deserve it. 

 

With Love,
