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. It’s an unfortunate truth, but this is where planning ahead of time just saved your skin. If the delivery date doesn’t matter, you can ensure that you’ll be home for it without stressing for time. You hear a knock at the door, hop to, and boom: the package is safely inside.
These retro-inspired coasters will take your parents or grandparents back to their childhood Christmas celebrations. Flashy centers and simple construction save surfaces and show off bold colors in any holiday living room. To create this DIY Christmas gift, use rounded-corner paint chips and vinyl flooring samples. First, round the corners of the flooring samples by tracing around the paint-chip corners and using scissors to carefully trim excess material. Use spray adhesive to secure a paint chip to the center of a vinyl sample. In a well-ventilated area, apply five coats of glossy clear sealer, allowing full drying time between coats. Affix felt pads to the coaster bottoms and start whipping up holiday punch.
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.
"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!). I was worried about the quality of the nuts, but the recipients ate them all in one day. How do we get more?! I will continue to spread the word about this awesome site, and will be ordering again soon! Thanks for this genius idea!" - Christina less

Most everyone knows of the age-old practice (seriously, it dates back to the Middle Ages) of giving specific anniversary gifts based on the number of years you’ve been wed. The idea behind it is that with each anniversary that passes, you strengthen your relationship. So, while these anniversary gifts may start out simple (paper for your first year and flowers for your fourth), their substance and significance increases as your investment to each other does. As time has evolved, though, so have these anniversary gift lists to match our more modern way of living.
Treat your paramour to an ancient skin care tradition that has recently resurfaced as one of the trendier elements of any routine. Generally, it's supposed to sooth skin, but it's also worth noting that Rose Quartz is linked with the Heart Chakra and love, so depending on what she believes, it can be a gift that speaks to both inner and outer beauty.
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.
With all that shipping information at your fingertips now, there are a few things you can do to plan ahead of time so your guy doesn’t miss his perfect gift. For one, you’ll do well to grab it a month in advance and stow it away on the top shelf in your closet (because childhood taught us that the best gifts go there). Take gift receipts and return policies into consideration. We already talked about these higher up in the guide, but to reiterate, it sucks getting a gift you didn’t actually want. Getting it returned or exchanged can be the light at the end of the tunnel, but not if your gift receipt exchange window expired. Pay close attention to that when planning to purchase ahead of time.

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.

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.

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.
Does the guy on your list identify with any of these? There’s a lot more to grabbing the right gift, but if you can start by pinpointing their primary interests and hobby, and what type of guy they are when it comes to style, you’ll be able to continually narrow down your list. Nobody wants to get a gift that the other person doesn’t absolutely flip over, so as we continue, we’ll minimize the possibility of that happening.

Brighten a plain notebook or journal with colorful embroidery floss for a thoughtful Christmas gift. Sketch a design on a piece of paper; secure the sketch to the notebook cover using masking tape, making sure to wrap the tape around to the inside of the cover to keep the design from moving. Place the front cover on a cutting mat and pierce using a large needle or paper piercer, making sure the holes are evenly spaced. If you're using a circular design, bring the holes a little closer together when approaching a curve to get smooth lines. Remove the pattern from the cover and stitch using four strands of embroidery floss; knot on the inside of the cover to finish the special Christmas gift.

"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
