Last but not least, we have post-Christmas sales and make no mistake, they’re a lot better than the days leading up to Saint Nick’s descendance. These give you a chance to grab some gear on the cheap if you’re following our gift wrapping ideas up the page in this guide, as well as smaller items that are just taking up floor space. They need to move inventory, and you’re just the person to handle it.
If pay dates are a restriction, it’s also possible to go 50/50 with another friend, so long as you pay them back after your next paycheck. This can help you reduce mistakes with late orders, and take the weight off your shoulders. Even in precise logistics, there’s a margin of error. Having a bit of wiggle room with your shipping and delivery dates is a good thing.
Is he a major man of style? He’s always kicking in Vans shoes or slipping into Hollister when you guys hit the mall together, and appreciates high-end clothing; you’ve just found your perfect gift for him. For men like this, there’s never enough room in their wardrobe, and they’re constantly making amendments. Grab him one of these gift cards, and you’ll be able to let his credit card take a break before he burns a hole clean through the mag strip.
The end is coming, and sooner than you think. Be prepared with these awesome stocking stuffers that will help you fare better in the upcoming apocalypse. With so many possibilities for the end of the world you have to be ready for anything that might crop up. You’ll equip your family members with things like stormproof matches, candles that last up to 100 hours, and straws that filter water. When it hits the fan your squad will be ready.
To overcome the common problem people faced as to what to give one’s spouse each year, an American author by the name of Emily Post, who wrote on the topic of etiquette, was the first to recommend a list of anniversary gift themes which was published in 1922 in her book titled 'Etiquette’. In that book, she listed suggestions for the first anniversary, followed by the fifth anniversary, and then every five years or so up until the 25th, and concluded with the 50th wedding anniversary. The American National Retail Jeweler Association expanded on this list in 1937 by filling in the missing years up to the 14th wedding anniversary, and the subsequent multiples of five up to the 50th year.
Alcohol-Inspired Gift Tag - Gift tags are usually cash-grab items that we don’t really need, but if you do it this way, you’re getting function out of it, and possibly a laugh if you’re creative enough. Strap a $2.00 alcohol nip to the tag, and write something like, “I know I drive you to drink,” or something else that’s light, SFW humor along with it. This is perfect when towing the line with your boss or co-worker at a Christmas party, and saves you from having to wrap the entire gift.
"Man Crates is one of the coolest websites I found for manly gifts. Not only does the gift come in a… more wooden crate with its own crowbar but it comes with super cool items inside. He got 4 NHL glasses, hockey puck coasters, a bottle opener made from a used hockey stick, and a few top rated snacks! They have tons of different choices for the gifts in the crate but my husband Brendan loves his Flyers! Thank you so much for making my first anniversary gift to my husband so easy! He loves it!!” - Melissa less

Last but not least, a humorous twist on a promise to love your spouse forever: Denture-shaped soap that says you’re in it for the long haul. This handmade soap comes as a set of two (top and bottom, of course!) and is available is three luscious scents, including cake batter and black raspberry vanilla (yum!). Your spouse will enjoy placing them in the soap dish in the powder room to get a good reaction from houseguests, or using them every morning in the shower to start the day with a smile on their face. If humor is one of the things that keeps your relationship, er, fresh, this will certainly help! 
Most experience events, if not all, should also have you included in the initial cost. It’s not much of an experience if they don’t have someone to go with, and if you’re a best friend or sibling, you know them intimately enough to get something they’ll truly, deeply enjoy. That’s an experience that they’ll want to share with you. The biggest mistake that experience day shoppers make, is not including themselves and running into financial problems. Just understand those experience days, on average, don’t include the cost of transit, tolls, food, drink, etc.
Another twist on the tried and true blue and green anniversary “stones” is a set of agate coasters in deep jewel tones of sapphire and emerald. Much like a marriage partnership, the true beauty of these stones is found inside and created only over the course of many years — an analogy you can use as a jumping-off point for a thoughtful card to accompany them. The set includes four coasters, each between 3.5” and 4.5”, and each totally unique as the variations are naturally grown in the stone. They are selected for their fine ocean shades and polished to a party-ready sheen. He can put them to use in his man cave or perhaps now he will actually use a coaster. 
Durable board books for infants personalized with the baby's name and photo make adorable keepsakes, while older adopted children will love seeing their name and photo in print in beautifully illustrated storybooks. For children who just became big brothers and sisters, personalized storybooks remind them they're still loved, and that a new sibling can be fun.

For the fashionista in your life, consider giving her a subscription to the Trunk Club. She can get a rotation of high quality apparel and shoes on a monthly or seasonal basis.

When the Trunk Club box arrives, she can try on the garments and decide whether or not to purchase them. Wardrobe staples include denim, sneakers, sweaters, and outerwear and range from $40 to $300. Nordstrom backs all inventory. Each trunk has a styling fee of $25.

If you are ordering online, make sure you get the right shipping level so that the gift is sure to arrive in time. A late gift is always disappointing, no matter what it is!

This is exact what I was looking for. The rose itself is perhaps 90% of the size of a real one, although the stem is shorter. The pot at the bottom is about the same size as the rose at the top. The rose part of this item appears to be solid steel (based on the weight and inflexibility of the material), not a rose dipped in something. The rose is completely unpainted. I'm not a flower person, but it looks like a rose to me (and it made my wife happy). It was exactly what I was looking for. Well mostly. It took a pair of pliers to remove the little plastic tag that they stick in the pot that says "11th anniversary". I got this for Mothers day (after our 16th anniversary last month), so the tag had to ... full review 

There’s thin ice to tread, though. When a man is conscious of his style, he’s going to take certain gifts with a bit more doubt. This guy requires a bit of extra work to figure out his ideal style gift. If he’s not into boots, and you grab a pair of Chelsea boots for him, it’s going to feel more like, “This is what they want me to wear, not what’s in line with my style.” To avoid that, we have a section further in the guide, all about color-matching with certain skin tones, and their current wardrobe. That’s going to show some real dedication and attention to their style, while still getting something that compliments them.

Frame a special photo in a colorful wooden frame for a sentimental Christmas gift. Prime the frame, then paint with a coat of chalkboard paint; let dry. Package this unique Christmas gift with different colors of chalk so the recipient can update the frame's caption and design as they change the photo. We love this Christmas gift for kids or creative coworkers.


Buying clothing doesn’t mean you have to stick to shirts and pants. If they’re more interested in the finer things in life, the augments that amplify their unique look, you’d do well to check out items that aren’t necessities, but will line the shelves in their walk-in closet, and give them a plethora of options when it comes to that black-tie affair or a simple day of relaxing out on the town.
Go the extra mile with an exquisite present from our collection of personalized gifts for women. She’ll appreciate anything you choose for her, but personalizing a gift adds a distinctive touch that makes it hers alone. Monogrammed or embossed initials and other customized elements elevate an ordinary object, imparting a bespoke quality to it and transforming it into a treasured keepsake. And there’s a practical benefit: personalization can help identify the object if it’s ever lost. Choose a personalized gift and let her know you appreciate everything she does.
This isn’t a bag thing, but it also comes with an additional difficulty factor, one that we wanted to flesh out in an entire section. The practical guy has three types of people who are going to understand his hobbies or understand what items will make his career/job easier to perform. They see these gifts as optimizing their life, which is a big up for the happiness factor. The types of people and the reactions they can expect are as follows:

If mom is a frequent shopper (grocery or otherwise) she'll love this stylish two-in-one bag combo from Timbuk2 in chic, semi-reflective silver. The outer silver bag and inner red bag can be carried together or separately if you buy more than planned, as totes or as backpacks! This brand is known for making sturdy bags for bicycle commuters, so you can be sure it'll last!
"I bought this for my son (a chemical engineer) for his birthday. He was very impressed with the… more quality of materials and how complete the set was. I had found other brew kits online, but they were made of plastic and other inferior materials that taint the flavor of the "brew" so this was a great find for a great price. Overall, I am completely satisfied with the product and the company. It was delivered the next day! I will absolutely be purchasing other items from Man Crates in the future!” - Deborah less
If you’re going for big gifts or small (gifts for 1 year old boys), you’re going to want to hit late February for President’s Day sales. While these tend to apply to major appliances and mattresses, furniture and things of the sort, that could be the perfect thing. If he’s a gamer, and you’re going for a stellar top-budget gift, you could always check out gaming desks or gaming chairs. The trick to utilizing these sales is to see what their doorbuster items are. These are generally things they use to get people in the door (even virtually), and then sell them on great deals on larger items. Some brands even sacrifice making any profit off these items by dropping them so low, just to get you on their site. You’ll also see sales like this come around in late May for Memorial Day sales.

Flash sales are a little add-on that people don’t take advantage of. They offer you the option to hit perfect windows so that these companies can move their inventory before they have to pay for more warehouse storage. This is when you want to pay attention to your newsletters the most and categorize them in a specific folder in your email so you don’t miss a thing. Subscribing to the Gear Hungry newsletter also gives you the chance to hear about epic weekly items, and if you throw them in your Amazon cart, they’ll notify you when the price drops to a number that you’re happy with.
"My son gifted this to me for my birthday. I love to work with my hands, and this was perfect for… more me. I have to admit, I was intimidated with a fear of messing it up. I knew my son would want to see the finished work. After staring at the pieces on my bench for a couple weeks, I finally decided, it’s now or never! Every step carefully processed. I knew there were no 'do overs.' Slow and deliberate steps, but once I got started it was an obsession. It came out great." - Ken less
Balance Life With Beer – Beer tasting isn’t just for social gatherings or feeling superior amongst peers, it’s a wellness practice akin to meditation… more or eating pizza.

"I ordered a crate for my dad's birthday and he loved it! After opening, everyone started looking at… more the Man Crates site to see what crates they would want to have or send to others. I knew I had to check out Man Crates again for Father's day. I thought to myself 'Whats the Father's day equivalent to Mother's day flowers?' and this is it! I cannot wait for it to be delivered to my dad." - Jill less

Budget ahead of time, order ahead of time and expect delivery delays. We would also like to add that if you’re in a highly-populated area, you’re going to be a prime target for box theft during the holiday season.

You hear a knock at the door, hop to, and boom: the package is safely inside.
