Go Ahead, Treat Yourself
You work hard, you make it happen. Day in and day out, you're hustling. But what's the point of all that work if you don't treat yourself from time to time. Below, we've highlighted 10 perfect gift ideas for that special someone… you.
When you're looking for the perfect treat to brighten up your day, chocolate always does the trick. When it comes to chocolate, you can't go wrong with a gourmet bar from Honolulu Chocolate Company, located at Ward Centre. Amid their delectable selection, you'll find a plethora of chocolate dipped strawberries, exotically spiced chocolate, and a wealth of mouth-watering cookies. With their expansive selection of treats, you're sure to elevate your—or someone else's—day when you treat yourself to a goodie from Honolulu Chocolate Company.

Air plants have put down major roots in pop culture over the past few years. Whether you're trying to add a bit of life to your home or office, succulents always seem to do the trick. But if you're looking to up your succulent game a bit more, consider adding one of these elegant air plant ornaments, available at The Wedding Café, into the mix.
We all get bogged down in life. Between work, family, and friends, it's easy to find yourself stuck in a rhythm. But that's not really living, now is it? People crave adventure, to peak out into the unknown, to explore and to discover. Now, with this catchy wood block art, you'll always have a pleasant reminder to get out of your comfort zones and have an adventure.

It's composed of organic ingredients and will have you rethinking the power of coffee.
They're a classic for a reason and are no longer just for your grandpa or nephew. The game is making a comeback with all walks of life. And when it comes to Dominoes, we're partial to this retro set from T.J. Maxx, perfect for a relaxing afternoon barbecue and a few cocktails with friends. Every household should be equipped with these bad boys.
Speaking of classics, you won't find a pair of shades more iconic and stylish than Ray-Ban's Wayfarers. For more than a half-century, these sunglasses have been a go-to favorite for movie stars and Average Joes alike.

Looking for a perfect accessory to compliment your outfit? These earrings from Cookies Clothing Company, located at Ward Warehouse, will do just the trick without breaking the bank. Whether you're working or playing, these earrings will keep you looking elegant and stylish.
Smart phones have become an integral part of our lives. With a single touch of a button, we're connected to the entire world.
