What about stocking up on some must-haves for the coming season? Check out these new ideas:
Maybe for Mother’s Day—Make your mom smell and feel even better with some body treats from Nubian Heritage. Our editorial team recently test-drove the Abyssinian Oil & Chia Seed Bath Bombs made with amaranth extract and ginseng to fabu effect. The fun foaminess ends in wonderful smells and traces of petals and herbs…made in the U.S.A. Their African Black Soap 24-Hour Deodorant, made with aloe vera and vitamin E, seems to be working well—no complaints. It’s not black, but a pale lavender that smells, well, like candy. Made in Canada.
When comfy, stripey slipper-shoes are the order of the day, try a pair from A’rcopedico at arcopedicoshoes.com. Of course they have many other nifty styles as well—including many vegan options.
Spring style meets function with Hi-Tec Socks. Get them for men or women, for lifestyle or performance. Either way they’re premium cotton with arch compression support, targeted cushioning on the ball and heel and a reinforced heel and toe, all of which make them oh so comfy. And some styles are so funkily designed your friends are guaranteed to ask where you got them. thecomfortsock.com
Have your favorite fur ball with you all the time—truly. Send 2–4 ounces of your pets fur in an airtight bag to The Analog Watch Co. and three to four weeks later you’ll receive a brand new watch wrapped in the fur which has gone through an innovative, hand crafted process to turn it into felted wool. analogwatchco.com
