Tissot's Ballin'

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:10 AM in Tissot (39)

It's basketball season. I'm not at big basketball fan but I do watch some games with my friends from time to time. We do it at homes or in bars. You might do too and it's highly likely that you have met a real fan. The one that gets up and shouts at the TV or hugs you in a real friendly  manly way when his team wins in the last seconds. You know, those guys. Well, if you have a friend like that and it's his birthday and you want to give him something special other than his favorite team's jersey, Swiss watchmaking company, Tissot, gives you more options than baggy jerseys and sweatpants. To commemorate the agreement between Tissot and the NBA - having Tissot as the precision timekeeper for all 29 NBA arenas - Tissot also struck partnerships with five NBA teams and created special edition team watches, including the Chicago Bulls and the LA Lakers

Gifting Idea: Personalize

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Annieglass (34)

The Holidays are coming and gifting is at hand. Gifting is kind of easy for one thing as you can just pick up something your friends and family can use. But if you are that person that wants to make everybody feel special, as they are, then you'd take the extra time of picking the perfect gift for everybody. But that takes time and research and who has time nowadays? To circumvent such precarious situation of balancing your time and your good intents, here's an idea that you might like. Get something nice, useful and durable that allows you to personalize. One thing I've noticed with savvy gifters is that they go for something just like that. And one maker of such things that they frequent is Annieglass. Annieglass makes richly textured dinnerware, serveware and gifts that transcends all styles making every meal a celebration. What Annieglass allows you to do is that it gives you a chance to have personalized and individualized messages engraved in their beautifully handcrafted pieces.

Posted by Schiffman's at 6:00:00 AM in Arte Italica (31)

The holidays are coming. Family and friends are coming over and it's only normal to want to impress your visitors. So you put the hours in on getting every recipe right, the taste right, the lighting right and the decorations perfect. But there are some things that we usually forget during the holidays. We have all the nice food and drinks but what way to ruin them with good old college time red plastic cups?Well, if you are like me that is trying to get a little serious, I highly recommend for you to consider using well crafted beautiful dinnerware and glassware to enhance the mood of the festivities. And one brand that I love to shop for when I'm in for the classy Old World feel and splendor is Arte Italica. Arte Italica pieces are sure to impress your guest and even you. Once you get the hang of using beautifully crafted glassware, barware and tableware, it's highly likely you are not going back to drinking off those large red plastic cups.

Dinner Party Cheat

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:50:00 AM in Beatriz Ball Collection (31)

For many of us, there are fewer things that are more fun than a dinner part with friends and family. It can be a potluck, it can be catered, have a private chef do the work, but nothing beats doing everything yourself. The greater you invest, the greater the rewards. The feeling that someone loves and enjoy your food and are enjoying it with you is a rush worth chasing. And here is a good cheat how to consistently impress. An Oxford University research show that it is likely that the positive or negative values one attributes to cutlery gets 'transferred' to the judgment of food. This is what they call 'sensation transference'. Take advantage of this human quirk and invest in cutlery and serving pieces that are elegantly styled and durable for long-term use. One good place to start looking is the Beatriz Ball Collection. They make magical pieces that can also make your dinner party magical.

For Rugged Guys Who Mean Business

Posted by Schiffman's at 1:00:00 AM in Swiss Army (38)

Whether we like it or not, we get judged by people through our fashion choices. Darline Price of Well Said, Inc., in an interview with Business Insider, said that even though what you wear defines you and determines your value as a person, it significantly influences how people see you and respond to you. This is why fashion selection and in this case, watch selection. We should choose wisely. If you are the kind of that rugged guy that values functionality, durability and accuracy most, you might not choose models that are all to flashy. But you can't wear big bulging wristwatches reminiscent of kits from 80s spy movies in business meetings. What you want is some middle type watch that is rugged and functional but also means business just like you. The first collection you should scout for this is Swiss Army Business Watches. My favorite in this line is the Chrono Classic with Chronograph. It is the perfect middling watch for durability and business style.
