favorite finds may

As spring slowly inches toward summer, our editors have been busy planting flowers and making the shift from hot coffee to iced lattes. We're also refreshing our homes after a thorough spring cleaning, so we have plenty of new favorite products to share.

This month's favorite finds include home products like luxurious ribbed bath sheets and colorful drinkware. We're also sharing travel must-haves to help you gear up for summer road trips and vacations. And since May is Garden for Wildlife Month, learn how you can get involved with the National Wildlife Federation to build a garden of your own.

Ribbed Bath Sheets

"Brooklinen just launched its first organic textile collections, and the new bath towels are quickly becoming my favorites: The lightly ribbed texture is amazing (and a nice visual contrast in my bathroom), and the towels feel amazingly soft and plush, but light and airy at the same time—a perfect balance. I'm thinking these will be a must-have come warmer weather and higher humidity!"

"May is Garden for Wildlife Month, and my favorite resource for wildlife gardening is the National Wildlife Federation's Garden for Wildlife program. This year the program is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and has a sweepstakes going on until the end of May for a chance to win a professionally designed wildlife garden plan and the plants it includes."

Summer Can Glasses

"I have a handful of drink ware items from Chalkfulloflove already, so when I saw the new summer can glass collection I placed an order right away. Sipping iced chai from these bright peach-covered glasses has quickly become my new favorite way to start the day, especially as the weather warms up. I also grabbed a few colorful glass straws to match!"

"Comfy clothes, food, and a powerful female-driven message are some of my favorite things. Overseasoned Amy is a brand that combines all of these in cute designs on t-shirts, tea towels, and more. I have two super soft tees that sport the sayings "Culinary Goddess" and "Flour Child" that I absolutely love."

Customizable Smart Watch

"I loved tracking my exercise on my previous smart watch, but I missed the look of a standard watch. This traditional looking watch has all the features I want from a smart watch, while ditching the ones that had me glued to my wrist. It's also beautifully designed, with a customizable watch face, and has a long battery life (only needs a charge once a week)."
