Promising review: "I grew a whole garden on my countertop. I had no problems with the seeds. They all sprouted nicely. I even looked for a flower assortment from the same company because of how well my veggies grew. Unfortunately I did not find any. I will buy these again next year and if they have flower assortments I will buy them too. The packaging is cute and whimsical." —BellyShnellyWines

Promising review: "I got this along with the fab flowering tea 12 pack for my boyfriend who is crazy about tea. He absolutely loves this little teapot, he uses it daily with loose tea and it's so easy to clean. We've only used one bloom so far and we couldn't believe how beautiful it turned out. The tea itself was tasty and we got multiple steeps from the one bloom. I recommend this for tea lovers, it's a great addition to our tea cabinet and a lovely display for our coffee table." —Whitney D.

Matt and Nat / Via mattandnat.com

Promising review: "Great quality bag! Bought this to use as a diaper bag and it works great. It's comfortable on, I like the backpack straps. The way it opens is nice because you get a good view of everything inside. I keep my iPhone in the front zip pocket on the outside. I like that it's vegan leather because I can wipe it off with a wet wipe when it gets dirty. It's held up great with everyday wear. It looks cute on and it's not bulky or wide looking on my petite 5'4" frame. I have gotten compliments on it and people have asked what brand it is." —Lee

10. A cookbook with delicious recipes even non-vegans will enjoy.

Promising review: "Wow! Just...wow! The first recipe we made was the half-baked mac and cheese and it was amazing!! I actually had to fight for my portion of the meal and I am the only vegan in the house. Even my 7-year-old, who is extremely picky, couldn't get enough. She even asked when I was going to make it again while we were still eating it, which never happens. Hands down, this is a life-changing addition to my extensive vegan library." —KristinGet it from Amazon for $18.27+, Barnes & Noble for $18.57+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

They are all delicious and I had not tried the other two flavors before this; so that was exciting. I definitely plan to keep this coming. Even the box it comes in is great." —TawnieGet it from Cratejoy for $19.99/month.
