Mind & Body by take heart {Gift Collective}

Today’s guide comes from one of my favorite shops and shop-keeps, Nina Gordon of take heart.  Take heart is an adorable store forging the way for retail on Austin’s east side.  Located on E 11th, just a few steps away from Blue Dahlia, it is another go to for thoughtful and handmade gifts with inspiration from Japan.  Nina’s guide focuses on mind & body wellness and self care.  For the people who rarely indulge {new moms are the perfect example!}, these gifts are exactly what they need to take a moment to focus on them selves.

  1. Gift Certificate for The Steeping Room on N. Lamar Blvd with their choice of bulk or dine in tea {and the lemon lavender tea cake is not so bad either}.
  2. BPA free aromatherapy diffuser that diffuses essential oils for up to 6 hours, available at take heart
  3. Beautifully packaged Nippon Kodo ‘Gifts of the Forest’ incense gift set with fir, Japanese cypress and conifer, available at take heart
  4. A 30 or 60 minute facial at Esty spa on E. 11th Street.  I am a fan of the 30 minute!
  5. Yoga classes as the wonderful East Side Yoga on E. 11th Street
  6. Be Present Every Day archival print on sugar cane paper – a perfect daily reminder,  available at take heart
  7. Herbivore Botanicals handmade bath salts in Renew, Calm and Detox , available at take heart
