I use this diffuser every night next to my bed. It hums a bit, but thats soothing to me at this point. Run it with an XOXO essential oil blend, with aphrodisiac properties, including  pink grapefruit, Ylang Ylang, tangerine, damiana, amyris, lavender. I highly recommend Jennifer Sowle of Saratoga Aromatherapy, she’ll do a one on one consult with you and develop personalized blends for your every need.

We just picked up the Herbivore jade roller and can’t wait for it to arrive. Hearing so much about this brand, it was hard not to love this rose tinted trio.

The slip silk pillowcase I got for my birthday has been a godsend. It’s sooooo soft, it’s literally dreamy and feels so good against your face. I might get this for myself after #NoShopFeb, but it might be overkill?

Have a day in the South End. Facials at skoah will relax you both and leave you with amazing, glowy skin. We love the staff here and the facial always leaves us in a pure state of bliss. When you’re done grab a mimosa and lunch!


Calligraphy never gets old. Learn how to hand letter with the best hostesses, Julie and Meg. Have a cocktail and test your skills at Sip and Script! Most events have super cool venues too, from small businesses to trendy restaurants and bars.


Floral arranging is a skill you should master within your lifetime. Knowing how to throw together a great flower arrangement can save you a lot of loot and add that something special to your gatherings. See Alice’s Table for the next round of events near you.

One last idea: instead of traditional chocolate, gift caramels. McCrea’s Candies are locally, handmade bites of heaven. Flavors and prices range.
