Gift ideas (that aren’t floats)

For the person who has everything, give them Nothing: gift certificates from Float are really the perfect gift! But if you’d like a little something to go along with your card, we got you. (By the way, members? You get 10% off all retail.) Among our smaller items, we have Himalayan Salt tea light holders, Conscious Ink manifestation temporary tattoos, and of course our delicious-smelling Lemongrass & Sage body wash, shampoo, and moisturizer. There’s also FLOAT swag with our “floating droplet” logo designed by Jennifer Mangini Perry.


FLOAT’s inclusion in 111 Places in Boston That You Must Not Miss was a real highlight! What’s more, it’s a beautiful glossy book that makes a great present. There’s something for everyone from natives to new folks. Get High Now (Without Drugs) by James Nestor walked out of our library so many times, we decided to just start selling it. (Look for the entry on floating!) Michael Hutchison’s classic Book of Floating is a great introduction to all of the ways people have used floating in their daily lives. Lee and Glenn Perry’s Floating in Quiet Darkness: how the float tank changed our lives and is changing the world is an amazing look at the early days of floating. Working with float tank inventor and researcher Dr John Lilly, Glenn developed the first commercially available float tank, and Glenn and Lee ran the first float center, in Beverly Hills.

Himalayan Salt Lamps and Tea Light Holders

If you’ve floated with us, you’ve seen the lamps in our float rooms and you know how appealing they are. They cast a warm glow that combines beautifully with rough-hewn natural edges. The tea light holders have that appeal on a smaller scale. Full-size salt lamps are $32, and the tea light size is $6.50. We also have “Planet” USB-powered salt lamps in a smooth round shape for $25.

Conscious Ink Manifestation Temporary Tattoos

Have you ever taken a Sharpie and written a secret reminder to yourself on your wrist? Something like, hang in there, or you can do this, or even… breathe? If so, you’ll immediately understand the appeal of these tattoos: they’re reinforcement of your intentions, in a fun and artistic format. We have two-packs and Intention Packs, which are 8 tattoos around a particular theme. These are a perfect gift for someone who could use a little extra love and support. More info here. Look for our “Illuminate” white-tattoo intention pack, which look gorgeous on deeper skin tones.

Our bath and body products

Love our the smell of our body wash? You can take it home with you, along with the matching shampoo and moisturizer. You’ll be bringing your post-float glow home too: smells associated with pleasant feelings and memories can bring those feelings (and good brain chemicals!) along with them.

Colorado Hemp Honey

This might be our all-time most popular product! Colorado Hemp Honey is a careful blend of pure and raw Rocky Mountain honey with full spectrum, cannabinoid rich hemp extract and organic essential oils. We love bees and beekeepers, so we’re excited to support this product. Single-serve Chill Sticks are available in five flavors, and you can assemble your own “taster set”. We also carry 6oz jars: regular flavors are $28 and Double Strength is $49.

Float Stuff: t-shirts and knit caps

Float Knit Hat (or Toque if you’re Canadian)

Last but not least, there’s our soft and sturdy navy blue cotton/poly blend shirts with our logo. Our Float knit hat is perfectly toasty for winter days.
