The result is a list of fun and shoppable Swears that make our goals feel a little more in arm's reach...

Resolve to "Unwindulax"

“Take a deep breath…and resolve to believe that everything is going to be just fine. This beautiful, lavender-scented Burkelman candle offers deep relation in olfactory form. Light it and see how your cares sorta just slip away. It’s cheaper than therapy.”

Resolve to Have More Family Time

“Let’s call just agree to call 2020 The Year of the Puzzle. Puzzles are everywhere right now! They promote a much-needed source of calm, keep your brain sharp, encourage family time, and let’s face it…puzzles are just fun! Whether you spread one out on your dining room table and chip away at it over a few weeks, or hunker down with some friends over a fire and bottle of wine, it’s a nostalgic winter activity that’s sure to bring people together. This option gives you a new puzzle every month to keep the fun going all year long!”

Resolve to Clear the Air

“Whether you’re moving into a new space or turning a over a new leaf in an existing one, ‘smudging’ helps cleanse the negative energy so you can start fresh. I love that this kit contains both Sage and Palo Santo.”

Resolve to Get Buff

“Go on and grab that glow. French Girl Rose Smoothing Sea Polish is a hydrating body scrub exfoliates, detoxifies, and moisturizes skin for a brighter, happier you. It’s just one tiny little self-care step that goes a long way…”

Resolve to Get Organized

“If you’re resolving to finally tame the piles of masterpieces from your prolific child artist, this is the tool to do it. This book is a great way to save, organize and celebrate your child’s artwork.”

Resolve to Shop Local

“Share your values in a stylish way with this functional-yet-cute tote. Made of durable jute, it will be the tote bag that you won’t mind carrying to brunch after you hit the farmer’s market.”

Resolve to Drink More Water

“S’well makes drinking water and bringing a re-usable water bottle fun and exciting with their ever-rotating patterns. This 9 oz size is perfectly packable for lunches and won’t weigh down smaller kids or their backpacks, while the 17 oz size works well for adults. Forget coffee and alcohol, water is THE adult beverage of 2020!”

Resolve to Clean Up Your Act
