Our Top 5 Father’s Day Gifts for 2012!

June 7, 2012

Hello, hello! Just a quick reminder that Father’s Day is right around the corner! Sunday, June 17, to be exact. So that means you’ve got a little over a week to get the big guy something special. But don’t fret if you’re blanking on great gift ideas. We are here to help! Ella & Boss has a number of awesome gifts for men that will delight Pops so much I bet he’ll forget how much he hates your good-for-nothing boyfriend, or that you could really use a haircut, hippie, or that time you totally pulled a Cameron and totaled his Ferrari! Well, maybe he’ll forget for like a week, at least. ­čśë

Here are our top 5 favorite Father’s Day gifts for 2012!

1. Four-Piece Chrome-Plated Shaving Kit and Stand 

I’ve found that when it comes to shaving, there are two kinds of folks: folks who love it and find it relaxing, and normal people who think it’s kind of a hassle. Clearly, I’ve spent some time in the second group, but I can tell you now that Bey-Berk’s shaving products are so lovely that shaving is a pleasure. This four-piece chrome-plated shaving kit comes with a Mach-3 Razor, a shave brush, a bowl and a stand. It’s an elegant, sophisticated piece and a perfect gift for a Dad who likes a close shave with a vintage twist. ($64.95)

2. Black Leather Watch Winder

Don’t you hate it when your watch stops at some inopportune time? It can wreak all sorts of havoc all over your life. Well, rejoice friends, because no one has to ever again suffer the indignity of missing an alarm and running into some important appointment late, sweaty, and possibly fired! How is this possible? Bey-Berk’s beautiful black leather automatic watch winder! Perfect for the stylish watch owner who appreciates great quality, great design, and attention to detail. This elegant watch winder is fashioned from double-stitched, buttery soft black leather and can wind two watches at the same. Plus, it doubles as a lovely, sophisticated little display case. Be warned, however. Once you turn it on, it’s not for the easily hypnotized! After you find the perfect spot for it, it plugs into the wall with the included AC adapter, but also includes a back-up battery, so Dad won’t lose time even when he’s on the go! ($197.95)

3. Lacquered Walnut Tabletop Cigar Cutter

Stylish, sophisticated and extremely useful, this tabletop cigar cutter from Bey-Berk International is the perfect gift if your Dad happens to be a cigar aficionado. A beautiful blend of form and function, it couldn’t be lovelier to look at or easier to use. Just slide your favorite stogie into the center hole, push down on the lever and voila! Perfect cut! Plus, it features a little drawer to hold all your necessary accessories and a latch keeps the blade the safely in place when it’s not in use. The high-gloss lacquered walnut and polished silver accents make it not only durable, but pretty swanky. It’s a special, elegant statement piece and conversation starter Dad will definitely want to show off. ($124.95)

4. Moleskine Gourmet Gift Box Set

My Dad’s passion is cooking and food, so this is the one I’m looking at. If you’re Dad’s like mine, you should check it out too. Created especially for the food and wine enthusiast, the Moleskine Gourmet Gift Box Set is an ideal gift for the Grand Gourmand Dad. The set includes: a Passions Recipe Journal (5″ x 8.25″), a Passions Wine Journal (5″ x 8.25″), 20 Gourmet Tasting Notes, which include space for each course from appetizers to dessert, and 20 Gourmet Coaster Notes, which space for wine characteristics, tasting notes and labels. Record and collect all your culinary impressions during fine meals. Plus, since it’s from Moleskine┬«, makers of the essential little black notebook for two centuries, you know each journal has that signature, sophisticated Moleskine┬« hard black cover, which now comes embossed with culinary themed images and writings. This is the perfect gift to keep any epicurean excited for every meal! ($69.95)

5. Waterproof Cotton & Leather Dopp Kit

Here’s a perfect little dopp kit by Rebecca Ray Designs for the Dad on the go. Heavy waxed cotton offers water resistance and durability. The authentic saddle leather sides, leather carrying strap and signature harness-grade D-rings offer that touch of rustic sophistication that make this kit truly a one-of a kind. Offered in three colors, you’re sure to find the one that suits Dad’s personal style. ($59.95)

But that’s not all! Is your Pop a techie? A sports fan? We’ve got all sorts of gifts that he’s sure to love. Head on over to Ella & Boss right now and check us out! And, finally, here’s wishing all the Dads out there, new, old, and especially mine, a truly awesome Father’s Day! Much love and all the best! – XO

“Puchi”‘s Got Something To Say

February 13, 2012

Hey hey, everybody! RM, here with some exciting news! First off, we’d just like to thank you all for your support! Business has been steady so far, and feedback has been positive, so we’d all just like to thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for stopping by and checking us out! And, of course, for telling all your friends!

Now, as all of you E&B-heads out there know, our mission is to always be on the lookout for awesome new stuff that makes your life easier, prettier and more comfortable. We do the shopping, so you don’t have to and all that jazz. Well, have we made a discovery for you! Recently, we headed up to the Big Apple for the NY International Gift Show, a humungous showcase in the Javits Center for furniture, lighting, and home accessory designers from around the globe to introduce all their latest and greatest designs and innovations. Naturally, we were running around like kids on a Pixie Stix bender, and came away with so many incredible new products and ideas that we’ll be rolling out in the next few weeks and months.

Today, we want to introduce you to one of our new faves now available at Ella & Boss. You’ve probably been wondering feverishly about the latest technology in bathroom towels. (Duh. Who doesn’t?) Well, fret no longer, we found a company from Japan called Morihata, who dazzled us with a new towel that’s not only supremely soft and functional, but also just looks really, really cool! Ladies and gents, the PUCHI PUCHI TOWEL!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know that “Puchi” sounds like something you want to shoot into space, namely this guy. In Japanese, however, “Puchi Puchi” means bubble wrap, and in this particular case, also refers to a line of fabulous, super-soft, lightweight guest, face and bath towels. Now, you’re probably thinking we’ve lost our minds. The idea of drying off with plastic babble wrap after a shower is after all rather strange, I know. But it’s an entirely different story when the idea of bubble wrap is applied to terry cloth. Not only do these modern, one-of-a-kind towels just look fresh and modern hanging out in your bath, but their unique, distinctive texture is designed to provide you with maximum fluffiness and absorbency. Each of the three available colors fits easily into any bathroom decor, and each comes in three different sizes: Bath (24.75″ x 50″), Face (13.75″ x 31″) and Guest (13.75″ x 13.75″). So go ahead and pick up a set or two or feel free to mix and match. Any you choose are guaranteed to make sure you and your guests always end your bathroom routine in a state of comfy, cozy nirvana!

So there you have it! As of this afternoon, the Puchi Puchi Towel is popping 24/7 over at E&B. Be sure to race over and pick up a few of your very own today!

Thanks and have a fantastic afternoon everybody!!! XO -RM

The Cognac Has Landed!

January 12, 2012

Hi friends! So for the last few weeks, our bestselling item by far has been the Shaved Shagreen iPhone cases by Vivo Studios. (Thank you to all you lovely bloggers who provided links to us, btw!) And when I say “bestselling,” I mean… [Cut to 10 minutes later] I mean like the new ones went live literally 5 minutes ago and I just got a phone call from a very, very friendly lady in Cali who’s apparently been waiting to pounce for three days! How cool is that?!

Well, for anyone else who’s been wondering, yes, we did indeed finally get a new shipment of cases this morning! Hooray! Unfortunately, our stock is still limited due to the lingering effects of Thailand’s hurricane season, which shut down production for a little while. Therefore, if the recent past is any indication, you’re gonna have to act fast. But, if you do, you can get one of your very own right now! (Go! Go! Go!) But that’s not all the exciting news! Oh no no! Today, we’re stoked to introduce a brand new color to the shagreen family. Ladies and germs, may I present… COGNAC!

In the past, the cases that have sold out the fastest have been the bright colors, but when we saw this rich, deep chocolatey brown, we knew we had something special and had to share them with all of you. I mean I’m not sure you normally think “elegant” when you think of an iPhone case, right? Well, thankfully this case isn’t normal. ­čÖé If bright and flashy and pink isn’t your thing, here’s the sharp, more understated (but not boring!) color you’ve been waiting for!

To purchase this case, or any of our others ($69.99 + SH), click this right here. And feel free to check out all of our other awesome accessories and gizmos and doodads while you’re over there. You never know what you might find!

Have a fab day! RM, out!

SALE ALERT! SALE ALERT!

June 1, 2010

The sale code this week is "WHITESHOES." But for the love of God, not these white shoes! ­čÖé

Afternoon, everybody! Resident male here once again hoping you had the most relaxing, fun-filled, sun-soaked Memorial Day Weekend of your entire lives! I know I certainly did. Sometimes you just need a few days where the most taxing thing you have to do is lay in an innertube while keeping the beer can on your belly upright, right? Or maybe that’s just me… (Keep it klassy, everyone!)

But now we’re all back at work, and I don’t know about you, but it’s been a doozy of a Tuesday morning here at Ella & Boss. Basically, all of our vendors decided to send us everything we’ve ever ordered at the same time (and before I had my coffee, which I didn’t at all appreciate, by the way…). But the best part? We got so much stuff that we have nowhere to put it all! So you know what? As of this moment…

EVERYTHING IS ON SALE!!!

No joke. For the next week (6/1-6/8), every single item on Ella & Boss is 15% off!!!

How do you partake in this? Well, unfortunately, at the moment, we’re having some technical difficulties on the site itself that are preventing us from taking the discount online, which we’re DEFINITELY working on. So the best thing to do at the moment, is first to go on over to Ella & Boss, and check out what we’ve got. When you see something you like, give us a call during business hours (M-F, 10:30 AM – 4:00 PM, EDT) at (703)992-8283 and our friendly representative (or I :)) will take your order and discount in person. Then, we’ll get your beautiful new ???? out to you as soon as possible. And we’ll even combine the shipping when you order multiple items! Oh, and be sure to use the code “WHITESHOES” when you call, so we know you’re not a robot!!! (Not that you’re a robot… Are you a robot…?)

OK, now you know what’s up, so what are you still doing here? Get to shoppin’!!!

5 Fabulous Gifts for Mother’s Day!

April 13, 2010

"Psst! Time to start thinking about Mother's Day!"

Good morrow, everyone! Resident Male here once again! Now if you’re anything like me, you love your mother very, very much. (Very controversial, I know…) But if you’re anything like me, you’re also terrible at remembering dates and holidays, so Mother’s Day can get a little… dicey. I don’t know about you, but for me, every year it’s the same thing. For the month beforehand, every day I’m like, “Mother’s Day’s coming up! Must remember to get something cool!” And then all of a sudden it’s the Wednesday before the big day, and I’m tripping over myself trying to get the last ratty bouquet of flowers in DC on a UPS truck, while paying an arm and a leg for the privilege. Plus? What are you supposed to get for Mother’s Day? I mean, really? Flowers? Chocolates? Doesn’t that all seem so passe? But going off the beaten path can get you in trouble as well. My favorite Mother’s Day memory happened when I was a little kid. I knew my Mom liked Hitchcock movies, so I ran right out (not knowing what I was buying, mind you) and ever so earnestly bought her her very own DVD copy of Psycho, which… Yeah… Don’t do that. It’s a wonder I didn’t get disowned. (I’M SO SORRY, MOM! STILL!)

I promise I’ve gotten a little better since then, but to help you avoid making the same ridiculous mistake, and to make sure you get that Mother’s Day gift in the mail on time, here are five gift ideas (at different price points, not to worry), all from the Ella & Boss Collection that are sure to make your Mom’s day. Here we go!
