Because many essential oils are known for calming and healing,Es-Scent-ials pendants are perfect for “Good Lucks” and “Get Wells.” If you have a daughter in college who is heading into final exam week, gift her an Es-Scent-ials pendant and some essential oil to help her stay focused and calm. Likewise, if you know someone who is getting over the flu, an Es-Scent-ials pendant with some healing essential oils makes a very thoughtful gift. Flowers only smell good for a short time, whereas essential oils last and last.
Steampunk can be well-suited for Halloween gifts, but also for anytime gifts. If someone you love is into the industrial or sci-fi vibe, the Steampunk collection is a perfect fit.

TheThaneeya collection screams “joy” and “cheer.” Bright colors, fun charms, and intricate designs make this collection absolutely perfect for celebrating or giving cheer. Thaneeya artwork makes people happy. It’s whimsical, bright, and unapologetic. The charms are full of character and show a different side of Solid Oak Inc. When we suggest Thaneeya as a gift it’s for one of two reasons: to celebrate something that is very happy like birthdays and graduations, or to bring a bit of sunshine to someone’s cloudy day. Since Thaneeya is a charm bracelet-type collection, you can even make it a special “thing” with someone close to you. Every birthday, why not add one more charm? Each time one of the kids moves away to college, why not give mom something new to make her smile when she’s missing you? From children to adults, Thaneeya pendants make great gifts!
