I get it, we’re killing you with the holiday gift guides, right? But before you close the tab, just know that this isn’t your typical “10 Gifts for Under $20” kind of list. This list is on a mission to highlight and support female-powered companies that definitely deserve a little extra attention.
So instead of dropping into Sephora only to wait in line for what seems like hours just to spend a small fortune on a gift card, opt to support women-led businesses by surprising your girlfriend/sister/mom with a gift that’s truly unique and tailored just for her.

Vianna Occhino is a New York-based, female-founded luxe lifestyle brand designed for those who aren’t afraid to embrace individuality through a non-traditional approach. The brand’s first collection, OcchinoSPORT | THETA Hz ACTIVE for example, puts mental wellness at the forefront of the industry—each piece tells a specific story.
Each piece created for OcchinoSPORT | THETA Hz ACTIVE was done so in hopes of spreading awareness and igniting a conversation about the importance of mental wellness.
