Coming Soon: Filene’s Basement Online

This post brought to you by Filene’s Basement. The content and opinions expressed below are that of DailyKaty.

I love to shop, but I also love a good deal, and that goes way back to when I was little, shopping with my mom at stores like Filene’s Basement. Here in New England and in Chicago and the Mid-Atlantic states, Filene’s was a popular place to shop for clothes and accessories, with more than 20 stores until they closed their doors in 2011. Filene’s Basement was where you would go for steals on great brands and I can vividly remember hiding in the racks while my mom shopped around. My guess is if you live in the areas where it was and you ask your mom, she probably shopped there too!

This fall, Filene’s Basement is re-opening its “doors” with the launch of an e-commerce site, FilenesBasement.com. It’s going to stay true to it’s original roots and history, except this time it will be a curated online marketplace, customized to personal taste, with discount, branded apparel, accessories and home goods. And with it being online, you’ll be able to shop it from anywhere, anytime.

I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store at Filene’s Basement online when it launches this fall! Now my big question is, will there be an online version of their annual “Running of the Brides” event?!undefined

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Guys & Easy Canvas Giveaway

This next gift guide is for the special guys in our lives, which I find to be surprisingly difficult to shop for! Does anyone else feel like guys tend to buy what they need and want for themselves? These gifts are great for Christmas and really any gift occasion, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day and so on.

Gifts for Guys
  • Easy Canvas PrintsMy go-to gift for my husband and dad are photos, and it’s not just because I love them. They just don’t go through the process of picking out and printing them, so they like when I do it for them. Lately I’ve been loving photo canvases like these from Easy Canvas. They make your prints look really professional and come in lots of sizes ranging from 8 x 10 to 24 x 36. Scroll down to enter to win a photo canvas! {easycanvasprints.com, prices vary based on size}

  • Hydro Flask Insulated Water Bottle & Beer Growler: I’ve never seen a water bottle this big, but I know I love Hydro Flask and that my husband drinks a ton of water. This one holds 64 oz and keeps your water (or beer) icy cold for up to 24 hours, while hot liquids remain steaming hot for up to 12. {hydroflask.com, $54.99}
  • Baron Tequila PlatinumYou can’t really go wrong with alcohol, especially when it’s really good alcohol like this tequila. It’s a new, ultra-premium tequila handcrafted in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico and certified gluten free and kosher. {baronspirits.com, $55}

Columbus Day Sales with Ebates {Shop the Looks}

While not everyone is lucky enough to have Columbus Day off from work, anyone can take advantage of the great sales today. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorites from online stores that are offering double cash back through a program called Ebates. Over the past year or two, Ebates has become an automatic step in my online shopping – and earned me tons of cash back. I even used it to book our honeymoon!

What is Ebates?

It’s a free program that allows you to get cash back on your online purchases from lots and lots of retailers. All you have to do is sign up here, go to Ebates.com before you shop online, click on the retailer you want to shop at, and it directs you to the online store you selected. From there, when you make a purchase, you earn a cash back percentage of your purchase (usually anywhere from 2% to 10%). The cash back is put in your Ebates account and then you get a “Big Fat Check” in the mail or transferred to your PayPal account four times a year or more, depending on your preferences.
