These are less about function, and more about getting a trophy for a milestone or significant occasion in the guy’s life. Because of that, there’s a lot less expectation on the nature of the gift, but you do need to signify a greater meaning behind it. With that pressure off your shoulders, it’s simple to contour it to the occasion. We’ll give you some examples:
A six-panel window frame becomes a weekly calendar that makes a stylish Christmas present. Each day of the workweek is assigned a pane, and the sixth makes room for notes (or your Christmas list). To make, tape off the wood frame with painter's tape and spray several coats of magnetic spray paint on the front of the glass panes, allowing each coat to dry between applications. Paint each pane with colorful chalkboard paint using a paintbrush to edge and a small foam roller to fill in. Let dry. Remove tape from wood frame.

The traditional colors for the four-year anniversary are blue and green, colors of loyalty and vitality that your marriage is earning as you move from being newlyweds to just plain married people. But instead of investing in the traditional blue topaz or zircon, stones that can seem quite fancy on a still-shoestring lifestyle, consider a unisex multi-strand bracelet made from hand-knotted nylon for a casual take on anniversary jewelry. The bracelet works just as well for men as for women and stands up to water, sun, sports and more. In brilliant shades of aqua with metallic accents, it’s lighthearted but durable, much the way you want your relationship to be.


Getting a woman an impersonal gift is an easy way for her to feel unappreciated. Instead, picture the specific person you are shopping for and get her a gift that you know she would love. If you are shopping for Mother’s Day gifts, take time to get something that each woman you are shopping for would love, instead of getting them all the same standard gift. Take into consideration her profession. Is she a doctor, musician or a nerd? this can give you clues to what she is into.

For Christmas gift-giving emergencies, dress up a simple gift card with our festive holiday holders. Stitch two pieces of felt together, using your card to measure the proper sizes of felt. Trace holiday-theme stencil designs onto felt in contrasting colors; cut out. Use hot-glue to secure to holder. Cut a small circle at the top of each tag; thread with baker's twine.
"I bought this as a Father's Day gift for my dad, and he absolutely loves it! He has always wanted a… more smaller humidor, and has never had a cutting tool like the one in this package. I have purchased 3 other Man Crates in the past 8 months since I discovered this site. I cannot be more pleased with quality of the products, the level of customer service if I have any questions or issues with an order. This is all around 110% the best idea for any gifts! I refer ALL of my friends, family, and acquaintances!!" - Josh S. less

He works his fingers to the bone, and he’s being given a serious promotion. The kind of promotion where there’s going to be a celebration. Whether you’re orchestrating it or not, it’s up to you to get something that really makes an impact. These events don’t call for functional items, but rather, significant and personalized trophy-style gifts. Engraved pens, embroidered briefcases (for their new office), or a new custom nameplate for their new desk. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. We’re personal fans of blending a few items with commemoration, and function. Things like custom mugs, custom luggage sets (if their new job means they’ll be traveling a lot and things of the sort.
I bought this for my daughter for her 23rd birthday. She loves mermaids. Arrived quick and in good order. When I gave it to her her sister and best friend were there and other excitement began. Why didn't you get me one too they both said as it was a joint celebration for both our daughter's birthday as they are only a few days apart. They all had to try it out and tell me the colors they want for theirs. It's a nice weight not to light or to heavy made very well and is long enough to to cover the whole body. I bought the blue/ purple which is more purple overall but I think any color would be great. You can put your feet though if you need to get up and walk if you want to. The fins give you extra to cover your feet from ... full review
This tome will make a statement with any wine lover. Hand-bound and presented in a large wooden crate big enough to hold a desktop computer, the new book by sommelier Enrico Bernardo covers the most important wines of the twentieth century. Bernardo, who was named Best Sommelier of the World in 2004 and made his name at the Four Seasons George V in Paris, covers the most noteworthy vintages from around the globe. From 1928 Krug Champagne to the 1951 Penfolds Grange Bin 95 to the 1973 Stag's Leap Estate SLV, the wines included are exquisite enough to impress even the most well-read winos.

Part of the reason that many men don’t know what they look good in, is because they’re embarrassed or uneducated. Up until a short while ago, societal issues made it awkward or nerve-racking for men to pay serious attention to their style. Those anxieties are instilled, and it’s a tough barrier to break. When they don’t know what they look good in, you have a safe area to bench on that most men will look good in, and it’s all about color matching.

Holiday ornaments are not just decorations for the Christmas tree, they induce nostalgia about times gone by and can be quite magical.

There’s nothing wrong with paying less attention to the stitch colors of a jacket or messenger bag, or not minding how the boots look, as long as they function. There’s a lot of guys out there who would much rather receive practical gifts, rather than something that essentially doesn’t serve a purpose (more on this shortly). They don’t find expensive clothing as attractive as a fuller wallet, which is totally okay. This guy understands and appreciates a new, hefty jacket to protect him from the elements when his job or trade requires him to work outside. He can find the joy and thoughtfulness in these items that blend function and fashion but generally enjoys the more practical or usable gifts.

"Regardless of what anyone says this gift is outstanding! I ordered it last minute for a Valentine's… more Day gift, and they were able to deliver it the next day (THANK YOU!).

It’s everything that we’ve talked about, but on the flip side. They’re finally taking the final load off, and kicking their feet up on top of all their accomplishments. You can’t really get them anything for their career or business, so it’s all about them.
