Jellycat Product Pick of the Week

Since Out of the Box has opened, we have always made it a point to sell gifts that suit just about everyone! While we have loads of jewelry and accessories for the favorite ladies in your life, we also are growing our baby section more and more each season! This leads into our Product Pick of the Week, one of our Tried and True baby lines, Jellycat!

Jellycat is a Stuffed Animal line that originated in London in 1999 and has exceeded many customers expectations. While we have found the line to be one of the safest baby toys, the creators have made some of the quirkiest, softest toys you will ever hug! The line launches new styles every Winter and Summer, with special soft babies for every holiday and occasion!

Your favorite babies, kiddos, and parents will never be disappointed with these soft and safe additions to the toy collection! Some of our loyal customers have even decided start Jellycat collections, because they enjoy the line so much! We have only heard great feedback about the brand, and think it is well worth checking out if you have a young one’s birthday or celebration in the near future. Keep checking in every week as we begin to highlight more and more Spring Gift Ideas!

Product Pick of the Week

Here at Out of the Box, we think that the gift of giving is the best gift you could ask for! We also think that treating yourself is important too! Even when you are treating yourself, there is always some way to give back! For this week’s Product Pick we want to share some information with you about a great brand that gives back!

Banded Accessories is a line that’s main mission is to help those in need. They say that “they want to stand for more than just the best products.” To do this they have partnered with organizations in Latin America, Uganda and the Caribbean who provide meals to those in need of them. For every Banded product sold, these organizations will provide 3 meals. Banded has already provided 10 million meals through this program and hope to continue to give even more!

On top of Banded being such a humble brand, their products are fashionable and fun! Some of our favorites here at Out of the Box are the Hair Tie Bracelets, and the accessory Scarves. The bracelets are practical and fashionable while the scarves are lightweight and versatile for every outfit!

Banded and many other brands we sell at Out of the Box have programs like this! If you ever wonder what good comes with the gifts you buy, don’t hesitate to ask! We will always help you find the perfect gift with the perfect story.

Product Pick of the Week

After a very hot end to the summer, it is about time we get to enjoy some brisk days! Fall weather means fall accessories and we have got some favorites to share with you. Our Product Pick of the Week this time is… (drum roll please) Blanket Scarves!

Scarves in the Fall and Winter have always been a favorite for our customers. Whether they be thick knit scarves, or small sheer scarves, they always have been a hit! This year we wanted to provide the best of both worlds. Scarves that are a statement piece of an outfit, and keep you warm with a nice jacket! That’s where these beautiful blanket scarves come in.

With a great variety of plaid patterns and color schemes there is one that will go with every single outfit! These scarves are in the shape of a large square, and can be worn in a variety of ways. When you stop in, any one of our girls working can show you our favorite ways to wear them.

Along with blanket scarves we still have an awesome selection of different pattern and weight fashion scarves. Each scarf is meant for one special customer of ours and we hope you find the perfect one for you! As always, we want to know what you think! Have any suggestions on products to talk about?
