For your most sensitive documents and/or nuclear launch codes, we present a case made by the tanners to the English monarchy and named for 007 himself. Black bridle leather, nickel hardware and a scarlet lining. It’s sure to impress Moneypenny next time you’re in the office.
A Gift Guide for You
You’ve made your list. You’ve discreetly emailed it to your entire staff. You even plastered it on streetlights and abandoned buildings. And yet, there’s still no way to guarantee you’ll get exactly what you want. Unless you get it yourself. Here’s a few ways to add to your enviable collection of stuff.
Locally Made Bow Ties from Accoutre
We’re going to say something bold: it might be time to start wearing bow ties. No, not like George Will. We mean tartan plaids, florals and bright orange numbers with little rabbits on them, all made in DC. Of course, you could give one to George Will.
Stag’s Head Whiskey Decanter
Your finest malt needs a worthy home. Like this series of decanters, handmade in Florence, Italy, of silver plate and glass. Oh, yes, we should mention that they’re topped with animal heads like stags and birds. We’ve been assured the decanters are 100% vegan.
The Soupscription from Soupergirl
All these holiday parties (the East Wing Christmas tree sure is something) have you a little short on cooking time. Enter the Soupscription, which delivers quarts of fresh soup—think gingered sweet potato and black-bean pumpkin—to your door every week. Tastes good at 2am, too.
’Tis the season. Yes, flask season. Take these beauties, which a local artist makes from recycled leather and a letterpress. Some examples of her work: a topless mermaid riding a shark, or an angel clutching a banner that says “Temperance.” Yeah, go with the mermaid.
