Wow! I had the pleasure of sampling the HERStory: Gifts for Wonder Women themed Babbleboxx in honor of Women’s History Month! The box arrived filled with gifts that are perfect for all the beloved gals in your life. This month’s box was specifically curated with women in mind!

The items I received in the box are so so perfect for any girl boss in your life. These 6 goodies combined create the ultimate gift guide for women. I can’t wait to tell you about what’s in the box! Let’s get started!

1. Hand & Stone Massage Gift Card

What girl boss wouldn’t like a massage?! I don’t know about you, but I want a massage once a week! I wish! And I don’t know any gal who doesn’t like going to the spa!

With this Hand & Stone Massage gift card, the recipient can enjoy massages of various sorts, including a Swedish massage, Hot Stone massage, and Deep Tissue. (Deep tissue massages are my personal favorite!) Your fave girl boss (or your bff, mom, aunt, sister…) can also recharge with a facial! Affordable luxury at its absolute finest! (Their introductory offer is $49 or $59 depending on location.)

I’ve actually been a member at my local Hand & Stone Massage for almost 5 years. It’s my favorite spa for facials and massages! Visit https://handandstone.com to learn more and get on your wellness journey.

2. Knours Cleanser- Your Only Cleanser

I received this cleanser right when I needed a new one, and it has been a blessing. It’s oil-based (It is suuuper light! You cannot even see it in my hand above!), so it easily melts away the day’s makeup. (I apply it to my dry skin, massage in, and then add warm water to it to finish the job! Then I pat dry.) I also use it in the morning as cleanser to refresh my skin.

So really, it is the only cleanser you need! Here are some other major bonuses:

  • Clean beauty
  • It’s a period skincare line that helps to calm your angry skin during hormonal times.
  • Cruelty-free
  • EWG Verified™, which means it is free of any of the Environmental Working Group’s chemicals of concern so it meets the strictest standards for your health

3. Artisanal Cocktail Mixers from ROOT Crafted

First off, just how pretty is the copper shaker?! Not only is it functional, it looks beautiful sitting on your countertop or floating shelf!

And it comes with a cocktail mixer that is 100 percent all natural and organic! It makes sense that two moms came up with these beauties! They wanted to craft an artisanal drink in a pretty shaker (makes you look super professional when entertaining!) and wind down with a delicious adult beverage mixed with healthy, organic ingredients. Feel good about relaxing!

4. Assorted Books from Harlequin

This summer, can you imagine you and your gals sipping on some refreshing cocktails you made with the ROOT mixer and settling down with one of these beach reads?!

Harlequin is behind an amazing array of books for women, including thrillers (my personal fave!), historical fiction, literary reads, and romance! They have so many book best sellers, so go ahead and gift your fellow girl boss an intriguing read from Harlequin (and keep your mind sharp by reading one, too!). Here’s the low-down on the three books pictured above:

  • The Honey Bus- an unforgettable story about how a woman turned to beekeeping for peace after her parents split and found “home” again. Who knew a bee could teach her about family?! Beekeeping saved her life.
  • Savage News- a fictional account of the challenges female journalists face in today’s world. Author Jessica Yellin, a former CNN Chief White House Correspondant, addresses the #MeToo movement, among other obstacles, and inspires women to stay strong and remain true to what they stand for (without losing sight of their dreams!!).
  • How We Disappeared- Jing-Jing Lee writes a beautiful WWII-era novel. A widow based in Singapore recounts how she survives the Japanese occupation.

5. G-Shock S Series GMAS120MF-2A2 Watch from Casio

In love. This sports watch is gorgeous!! I love that you can wear it whether you’re a fitness junkie or not, but Casio did design the watch with tough and active women in mind!

In my case, being a stay-at-home mom to twin littles is my cardio, and this stylish watch withstands the elements! It’s durable and chic, and I can wear it whether I’m in the gym or not!

How beautiful is the metallic rose gold watch face with the navy band?! And check out these features:

  • 200M water resistance

6. Shoes from Earth Shoes

Sustainable fashion is on the rise, and I have been reading a lot about it in various fashion magazines! Earth Shoes makes the cutest, most comfortable shoes that lighten your steps AND your carbon footprint!

Earth Shoes carries women’s shoes narrow and wide widths, in addition to medium, which is great news for me! I have such narrow feet! Plus, their shoes are extremely comfy, and you can find sandals, sneakers, wedges, flats, slip-ons… The list goes on!

So now I get to shop comfortable shoes that were created using sustainable sources and fair partnerships!

Check out the kicks above!! The perfect spring shoes!

      Oil cleansing is such a good way to wash! Doesn’t strip away oils.
