We adore the entire Aqua del Sol Recycled Glass Collection from Bambeco. Made from recycled soda bottles, a rainbow of colors grace the rim and a confetti of colors reflect against the aqua blue glass.

Meet MUSE™, the innovative brain-sensing headband that helps reduce stress, alleviate anxiety and increase focus. After connecting MUSE wirelessly to the app on your smartphone, MUSE guides you through focused-attention exercises providing real-time feedback by translating your brain signals into the sound of wind. When your mind is calm and focused, calm winds are heard. When your mind is active, the winds pick up and blow. Learning to keep the winds calm, trains your brain to stay focused and resist distractions. Results are provided after each session and MUSE provides challenges, points, and goals throughout the training to help you feel more positive, relaxed, and in-control. Includes a 30-day money back guarantee. $299
