Our favorites on this tea menu include the Cucumber Mint Green Tea and the Lychee Coconut White Tea. We’d say this is a s’tea’l!

  3.  Handblown Glass Champagne Bottle Ornament : This ornament is a great remnant to remember the holiday. Also, can a glittered Champagne ornament be any cuter?
  4.  The North Face E-Tip Gloves : As the winter sets in, these men’s gloves are perfect for keeping hands warm. The U|R Powered palm allows touchscreen capabilities! These gloves are perfect for the men in your life.
  5. SunnyLife Large Cactus Neon Light : We are absolutely obsessed with this light. SunnyLife promotes happy vibes and warm weather and this gift indeed says both. It’s time to brighten someone’s life with this darling cactus light!
  6. Indoor Cactus Light Garland : In case you haven’t noticed our love for cacti, check out this garland. It’s perfect to lighten up a desk or window. Your friend and family member will no doubt adore mini cacti, especially when they light up.
  7.  Foldover Clutch : Every female needs a clutch in their life. It’s small but carries lots – simple as that.
  8.  Lipstick Queen Frog Prince Duo : There’s something fascinating with these Lipstick Queen lilypad green products. Did you know they adapt to your natural coloring and pH levels, creating the perfect pink match for your lips?
  9.  Sonix iPhone 7 Plus Case : Again with the cacti, but seriously how cute is this phone case? A gift that’s useful and adorable.
  10.  ‘Highland’ Whiskey Tumbler : Tumblers are perfect to give new homeowners (i.e. the recently wed, college students). This tumbler, in particular, is beautiful and bold.
  11.  Panama Notebook “Wanderlust” : A journal is a perfect gift to give someone you’re close to. Tip : write a simple note on the first page sharing why you love them along with ideas of what they should write about. Sentimental & Sweet.
  12.  Nike Air Max Sneakers :  You’re bound to have a friend who is a sneaker freak and these are ideal. They are comfortable and the olive green is to die for.
  13. Cruiser Turntable : Give someone this darling portable record player and tell them you’ll join in a date to pick their first record – how cute is that?
