What We’re Loving Right Now

While most love cards reek of sentiment, have no fear as we’ve got admiration cards for the non-mushy of heart. From bone puns, to Benedict Cumberbatch innuendos, Prince, and more, our card vendors got your back.

If you’ve been struggling to find your zen during this Mercury-in-retrograde or new-moon or whatever-is-going-on time, stop in to pick up some handmade incense and chakra room sprays. Then do some retail therapy with gemstone jewelry -that you can also use during your meditation. It’s all going to be okay.

Your house has enough outlets for all those nightlights above. They make great gifts too for the pop culture lover! -And they’re going fast!

Small amounts of sparkle your thing when it comes to jewelry? Then you need to come in and pick up an eco-resin ring from Sloane Jewelry Design. Available in multiple colors and styles, these babies have gold and silver flakes suspended in the resin. And at just $33, you won’t feel bad about shopping for yourself (not that we ever really do lol).
