I have a friend who somehow always manages to give really unique and thoughtful gifts. Last year for my birthday this same friend, named Sabrina, sent me a beautiful focaccia bread, sage scented candle and protea flower bouquet from this really beautiful company called, Flamingo Estate, located in Los Angeles, CA.
What I love about this establishment is that they offer something uniquely wonderful for all the senses…so whether it’s a bottle of Rose wine, Jasmine Facial Mist, Wild Flower Honey you’re sure to find something truly special to delight in.

Vita Coco Coconut Water
Oh my gosh… I LOVE the taste of coconut… so when I discovered Vita Coco Coconut Water I was over the moon.
Coconut Water is so refreshing and according to Healthline.com “Coconut water may be the perfect beverage for restoring hydration and replenishing electrolytes lost during exercise. Electrolytes are minerals that play several important roles in your body, including maintaining proper fluid balance. They include potassium, magnesium, sodium and calcium.”
Plus in 2014, Vita Coco founded the Vita Coco Project that helps support the people and communities where their coconuts are sourced. “With our Give, Grow, Guide philosophy, we work to help these coconut farmers increase their annual yield, diversify their crops, and grow sustainably. We also value the impact of education on a community.”
Love that their beverage is good for you all the while they are doing good in the world!

Metal Straws with Silicone Tips
Considering all the refreshing drinks I’ve been creating this summer and the fact that using a straw makes me feel fancy, I so appreciate these metal, reusable straws! Obviously we all care about the adorable sea turtles and no one wants to be one responsible for giving one an impromptu nose ring or worse, but in addition, using these straws helps lower the amount of plastic that will potentially drift out to sea. I also use them to bypass my teeth when drinking something sweet and that has been a game changer for both my dentist and me. The silicone tip means the world to my rather cold-sensitive teeth. They are adorable and dishwasher-safe and having 16 in different sizes ensures I’ll never not have one handy for an afternoon smoothie or a to-go drink for the car!
