Expressing love and affection can be difficult. That’s why gifting presents can be such a profound gesture.

If you’re into quality medicated cacao, look no further. Binske uses Peruvian Nacional Cacao, a rare cocoa bean that was heretofore thought to be extinct. Until the early 20th century, Nacional was widely grown in Ecuador and famous worldwide as luxury chocolate. But in 1901, a rampant disease struck Ecuadorian cocoa fields, and the bean became extinct for over 100 years. In 2008, the bean was rediscovered in a hidden mountain valley on the Marañón River in northern Peru. Nacional beans were named the “rarest cacao in the world” by the New York Times. Anthony Bourdain’s iconic show No Reservations covered the cacao farm in an episode. The white beans produce an intense chocolate aroma and mellow richness that lacks the usual bitterness of cacao, making this bean a chocolatier’s dream.
With 100mg in every bar, Binske delivers a high as smooth as jazz but soft as velvet. And with flavors dating back to the wisdom of ancient civilizations—you know you’ll be tapping in to your higher self with every bite.

Cheeba Chew Pillows

Whether that’s your dog, parents, siblings, friends, or neighbors, creating a safe haven for people (or animals!) to feel welcome and be fully themselves is ideal for nurturing relationships—something people should be doing all day, every day, all year long. And these ultra-cozy Cheeba Chew pillows are perfect for creating such an environment.
