I’ve bought this as a gift for parents and friends. The novelty of it is a lot of fun! Easy to load and start using right away. It’ll give you the lo-fi, saturated, vintage look people try to accomplish through filters on Instagram at the click of a button.

    Promising review: "I bought the Deep Sea for my wife as a gift and set it up while she was away on a trip. It took a few infusions and extractions of air to get the amount right, but the whole time I was experimenting I couldn't stop watching it! It was mesmerizing! My wife loves it and, like me, loves to watch it. The patterns of the formations are not only beautiful but sometimes astonishing. We haven't had the heart to invert it in the last few days because the last picture it made actually had forested hills. I've requested one of my own for Father's Day, which I intend to put in my office." —Benjamin White

I get very busy, I don't really use my phone so I don't text a lot. The bracelets really help in those moments when I don't want to text, or when I really need his hugs and support. It's the closest thing I have to feeling his touch. He's going to Peru soon, so for a while we will be LDR! These bracelets will definitely be a lifesaver when that happens." —KittyKen

This box gives all bath bombs I've tried a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I've used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs.
