Holiday Wednesdays, Staff Picks: Kate Has 3 Women in Mind to Receive the Def Leopard & VaniLLa Croc Deano/Totes Ma Goat Set

croc deano totes ma goat setkate

“This gift is not perfect for just one person, it is perfect for everybody on my list! I have a large and quite modern family which makes it is particularly hard to find gifts that suit everyone’s needs and keep food on the table. I love this set for three of the main women in my life: 1. My Grandpa’s Girlfriend, the eternally stylish woman who needs a simple no-fuss beach bag to tote to the pool and a larger carry-all to pack her hostess gifts while party hopping. 2. My Mother, the sophisticated, yet baggage-heavy jet-setting woman who needs the Croc Deano during her shopping excursions in London and a smaller, foldable tote to slide her computer into while on-the-go. 3. My  stepmother, the sleek, yet simple city-dweller who utilizes the Totes-Ma-Goat for her “round-the-corner” quick grocery run and the larger tote to pop in her medium toy poodle pup!

That’s right ladies… three bags, three women, one happy Christmas!”

Holiday Wednesdays, Staff Picks: Tab’s Gifting the Barnboard Uscoop 4Boys & Stout SCOUT Deano Set

tabitha

This Wednesday’s staff pick comes from our COO, Tabitha… ever the touter of SCOUT (she’s been here from the start!), Tab can roll off the cool features of this set like it’s her J-O-B!

Of the Barnboard Uscoop 4Boys & Stout SCOUT Deano Set, Tab says:

“Who ‘woodn’t love this rugged looking but contemporized matching tote set? For low country, back country or high country living, this perfectly practical gift is great for hauling gear to and from your ski or hunting lodge and is also well suited for ‘no-country’ urbanite faux bois fans and tree hugger do-gooders alike. Long strap construction makes for easy lugging and the reinforced PU bottom withstands the elements. The new ‘peel-back’ zipper top engineering ensures quick and efficient load and unload.”
