The Spirit of Oktoberfest…!

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

The famous 16-day festival that paints the country white and blue, is known to be the world’s largest fair, and it is none other than the Oktoberfest.  Every year they have about more than 6 million visitors from all over who bring their thirst for having a good time with them, resulting in a consumption of more than 7 million liters of beer!!!Now this is really huge…Tents are built all over the place for the festivities, with plentiful of games, races, musical blast and merriment.  The event ritually commences with the mayor saying O’zapft is!” letting the universe know that the first barrel has been successfully tapped!If you cannot be in Munich to experience this, it doesn’t sound too complex to host your own Oktoberfest, does it? Relish the same experience with Our Beverage Barrel. It makes a magical groomsmen gift for those who enjoy his aged beer with the sharp and distinct flavor of oak wood.  The minute they bring this home, they wouldn’t be able to wait to pour their modern spirit, as this mini barrel actually helps to speed up the aging process of liquor due to its higher spirit-to-wood ratio…one of its perquisites!Personalized, this makes a fantastic, eye-catching add-on to that home bar or man cave!

Call it what you want…Dodger’s Call it Loyalty!

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

In the name of Baseball history, the Dodgers have won 6 World Series Title, but sadly lost the championship. In the year 1955, thanks to nine brilliant innings in the seventh game they finally managed to beat the Bombers for the very first time. Since then, they have jumped to greater heights with more achievements that include Cy Young Award, Most Valuable Player, Gold Glove Awards, and many more.The outcome in a game is impossible to guess! A fan’s loyalty towards a team is parallel to a long term marriage, facing their adversities, and sharing their success throughout. Victory is not simply based in terms of trophies, awards, and points received; it’s not always about winning! Triumph should remain in the heart of a fan who loves the team for right reasons, and our Baseball Wallet is a sign of that victory, devotion, and love for the Dodgers!Treat the Dodger fan like a sport superstar with this awesome wallet that was made from an actual baseball that has been used during the MLB game. Imagine, it has played in the league, and probably scored the winning run?? It comes packaged in a memorable gift box with an authentication instruction card. What better way can you think off to relish your finest memory as a Dodger fan?

 

The Man Cave is now legal!

Monday, October 8th, 2012

Last year the word was “tweet”.This year its “sexting” and “man cave” – the newest terms added to the Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. The term man cave and its denotations have flooded people and the world in not just in terms of speech. Having a precious, personal man cave seems to be just as essential as having an attached bathroom in the master bedroom of a home….for a different need,of course. It is not just a dream anymore for a man to want a place to relax, play games, watch football and have a few beers with friends over some poker. It’s a need!Its not all that difficult to re-vamp an ordinary room into a man cave and one wont need to spend a bomb re-decorating.  Like a king on his throne, a man cave normally has a huge comfy sofa or even a recliner; a mini-bar at the corner with all the bar essentials, some personalized glasses, a flat-screen T.V and a stunning sound stereo. Add up some personalized pub signs to literally claim the room as your own; order some pizza and all you need to do is call a bunch of boys and let the fun roll.This does hit on an idea on the term “Woman Cave” – feminizing a room wouldn’t be all that hard too, with splashes of hot pink colors here and there, good music, martini glasses and a ‘sex in the city’ video..Let’s hope the “woman cave” term passes entry to the OXFORD Dictionary next year.. You just never know.

Parker’s Powerful History as a Token for Today…

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Despite the ballpoint pens in different price range and types flooding the stationery stores, the name Parke still holds a pride of its own, where almost everyone young or old is sure to be aware of this brand. As how every high-end brand starts from the ground, slowly climbing its way up to success and with one strong blow monopolizing the market, Parker, too experienced the same journey. An expedition that started with George Safford Parker its founder, who had previously been a sales agent. From the 1920s – 1960s, before the development of the ballpoint pen, Parker was continually either number one or two in worldwide writing instrument sales!!In 1941, the company came up with a most widely used fountain pen in history covering a $400million sales in its whole 30 years of popularity. This is how it grew in numbers and manufacturing companies were set up in Canada, U.K, France, Mexico, India, Pakistan and more… The parker pens were almost always selected for signing important documents of history, such as during the World War II.This is why we offer this bit of elegance and fine craftsmanship within a small box as a token of appreciation for the groomsmen and ushers of your wedding.. leaving them a trail of powerful history between their fingers.
