Your Cart is Empty

The team at Out of the Sandbox works hard every day to develop and support our gorgeous,  premium Shopify themes. We pop into a lot of different shops along the way, so we get to see a ton of unique and interesting products in our merchants' stores. We usually have to be careful not to get too distracted (otherwise we'd spend the bulk of our day shopping online) but for this special holiday post, we've asked the team what items they'd put on their wish list from shops using OOTS themes — friends and family take note! ;)

Brad   |  Lead Designer/Developer


Our fearless leader, Brad, has a great aesthetic and appreciates original, hand-made and unique items that are both elegant and functional... and sometimes even a little whimsical. Check out his favourites here:


  • Personalized wallets from Carve On
  • Men's slouchy beanies from King & Fifth
  • Muggsies from Qtique (which ones would he choose, we wonder? ;)

Ashley   | OOTS Support Wrangler


Ashley is our Desk handler, lead tweaker and all-around support guru. She manages to stay super organized, despite the antics of her feline office mates. She's a big fan of the 1canoe2shop, but also has her eye on this nifty scratching post, "because it seems like it could save some furniture!"

Elli   | OOTS Support Guru


Elli is our theme setup maven and awesome resource for all things Shopify! She can think of nothing cozier in the winter than a big steaming mug of tea (but a cold craft brew from a monthly  Beer Appreciation Club subscription would certainly not go to waste either ;). 

Michael   |  Support/Content Guru


Michael is our U.S.-based support and  content marketing specialist, and a regular contributor to the OOTS blog. Michael has a keen eye for tech and design, and had no trouble finding some cool products in our merchants' shops to add to his wish list:

Scott   |  Support/Code Ninja


Scott is the "Ticket Master" and go-to guy for the tricky technical support issues... he needs well-designed, high-performing gadgets that can keep pace with him, and he hunted down some noteworthy items this year:

  • Long-range, high-endurance A2 X4 airborne drone 
  • Portable smartphone battery from bKey ("the concept is brilliant")
  • Ingenious belt with hidden zipper pocket from Stashbelt

Sharon   |  Design Guru/Theme Support


Sharon loves helping merchants make their shops look their best - if there's a color, image or layout to be tweaked, she'll tinker obsessively until it looks just right. She finds herself drawn to great imagery, bespoke design and anything sparkly.
