Pineapple Cilantro Home Fragrance
I am obsessed with this fragrance without having the pleasure of experiencing it yet. The combination of scents is unexpected and sounds delightful. Perfect from the patio to the kitchen! The chic container can be repurposed long after the candle is gone.
Tea Forte Herbal Retreat Teas
I highly recommend this brand of tea which I discovered on The Club Floor at The Ritz Carlton San Francisco. The packaging is uber chic. Flavors like Apricot Amaretto and Blueberry Merlot make this a must have for the tea lovers in your life.

Created in collaboration with Rachel Kozlowski, these quirky towels are conversation pieces for the kitchen.

Going for the weekend? Why not pop forbrunch for Sunday? It's shipped frozen so it will be fresh when you arrive. This is a real NYC treat!
Modern Dinner Bells
Yes, we love the sweet smells of dinner, but what about the sweet sound of dinner? Revive the old fashion way of gathering the troops for dinner with a little ring-a-ling. Made in Brooklyn, these bells make a charming gift for the lake home, beach house, or anyone who loves both form and function.
5 Olive Oil Gift SetIf you are visiting for the weekend, you might want to step up your gift budget and impress with this fabulous Five set. Both the olive oil and Vinegar are very special. Any cook will love it in their kitchen.

I have always wanted one of these. This one makes a good showing on anyone's countertop, but it functions fabulously, too.
