3. Me & the Bees Lemonade, a refreshing and tasty beverage that also aims to help save honeybees from extinction.

The idea for the company was created by founder Mikaila Ulmer when she was just 4 years old, after her family gave her the encouragement to enter a children’s business competition as part of Austin Lemonade Day. Using a flaxseed-lemonade recipe from her great-granny Helen’s 1940s cookbook, paired with her fascination with bees after being stung twice, she birthed the beverage line that is now sold at Whole Foods. But the company is about more than making a yummy drink: It also donates a portion of profits to local and international organizations that are working to save honeybees.

Get a four-bottle variety pack from Me & the Bees for $17.

4. Maya’s Ideas, a place to purchase stylish and environmentally sustainable scarves, hats, necklaces, and other pieces sure to take your whole wardrobe up a notch.

5. Dreams Come True, a sweet book that follows the adorable father-son duo Jake and Jayce on their quest to uncover new adventures they can conquer together.

The book was co-authored by Jayce A. Holley and his father, Jaquann A. Holley. The duo was inspired to write the book as a celebration of the time they spend together at places like the park and how their adventures constantly sparked Jayce’s imagination. After Jayce shared a story he dreamed up during a car ride, Jaquaan came up with the idea to document the tale. He ran the idea of turning the story into a book by Jayce, and the young creative was totally into it — and now you and your little one can enjoy the adorable finished product.

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

12. Oasis, a tool that can detect whenever a child is left in a hot vehicle, alert parents of the situation, and help cool down the child while they wait to be rescued.

The idea for Oasis was created by Bishop Curry after learning of the death of a 6-month-old in a hot vehicle. Following the creation of a provisional patent and a 3D model of his invention, Bishop launched a GoFund Me campaign in 2017. He raised over $50,000 to produce the device and received a patent for Oasis in April 2018.
