The Beauty Mage 

FLORAL BEAUTY WANDS

US from $5

Hear me out…a couple energy cleanse.Beauty wands are intended to ground and center via a smoke cleansing ritual, so you can feel better in your body and cleanse your space from unwanted energies. As we attempt to be more sensitive to other cultures and reduce over-consumption, The Beauty Mage has created a more sustainable and conscious base featuring eucalyptus, rosemary, pine, cedar, and/or mugwort. Added to those bases are a variety of other herbs and flowers meant to enhance different emotions and mental states. Burn these with clear intention and watch the energy within and throughout your space transcend and transform.”

Hugh Holland’s “Locals Only” captures the spirit and energy of the golden age in skateboarding. “Holland spent three years documenting these kids and their stylish territorial way of life, capturing the vibrant energy and youthful innocence of tanned, bleach-blond rascals in tube socks and Vans as they lived a never-ending summer,” Widewalls magazine said. If you don’t have a skater boyfriend to gift this to, fear not, look to the WikiHow “How to Attract a Skater Guy: 12 Steps (with Pictures)” article.

Bathing Culture

BIG DIPPER MINERAL BATH

US $30

Pick your avatar: the one who detests baths with a passion and profusely argues that you are “soaking in your own filth,” the person that doesn’t mind a bath, but rarely gets around to it, and then you have me. Bathing is my religion and I have a deep affinity for the carefully curated experience. If bathing isn’t your M.O., gift this to your S.O. for a silky soak.
