Meet Danielle


Danielle Olivia and Ocean

Why we asked Danielle to be a Guest Gifter...

We are completely inspired by Danielle's determination to follow her dream and start her own business.  Inspired by her little Olivia, and by long California summer days spent in the sand, Danielle created Olivia + Ocean. 

 Olivia + Ocean is dedicated to crafting swimwear as cute and stylish as it is functional. Featuring an adjustable fit, modern design, and lovely detailing, these are swimsuits that will truly last several seasons! Danielle’s swimwear is designed to celebrate the childhood magic made in the water. Each suit is named after one of her family’s favorite beaches to frequent.

Danielle’s professional background is working for technology companies to grow their brands via Management roles in Marketing and Business Development. She currently lives in Santa Monica, California with her husband and daughter. A portion of the proceeds from every one of her swimsuits is donated to Olivia + Ocean partner, Water.org, to help provide clean water to those in need all over the world.

While Danielle is one busy Mama, keeping herself busy with her full time job and her swimsuit line.. she also has a great eye for some of the most thoughtful gifts.

Flowers for any occasion The Bouq


For Mom to Be Friends Plain Jane

I can always count on them to have cute gifts for friends, family members or kiddos and they do great quality gift wrapping. I also love that all their products are fair trade and empower women all over the world. Responsible shopping is important to me! The Little Market

Child bday gift. Shoes are so hard to get on little people’s feet so I love giving these for kids bdays, as it is a gift for their Mama too! Freshly Picked

For myself when I accomplish a goal. I think treating yourself is important, especially as an overworked mama who rarely does things for herself. We all deserve to give ourselves a gift every once in awhile! Christy Dawn

Any friend who moves to LA as a welcome gift. A pair of very necessary sunglasses. Illesteva

A small gift for all the cool dudes in my life (brother, uncle, friend’s bday etc) Lucky Bastard Company

For eclectic unique pieces for a special occasion or just because Burro Goods on Abbot Kinney

My husband, anything from Buck Mason

Grandparents: Chatbooks book of my daughter’s adventures. This site makes it so easy to gift Olivia’s grandparents the prints they are always asking me for. It is fun for them to see her pics shared on social media but they are more old school and want to hold the pics in their hands. I also use this in place of a baby book and print them to keep them at home to show her when she gets older. There is something special about printing your memories.
