Bright floral prints keep a home looking warm despite winter chill—an ideal Christmas gift for  friends who prefers bold motifs. Choose the frame and cut a piece of cold press board (sturdy, textured paper found in crafts stores) an inch smaller than the frame on all sides. To create the irregular white border, brush frisket (liquid similar to rubber cement that will mask areas you don't want painted) along the edges with an imperfect stroke; let dry. Place silk or plastic greenery (look for pieces that lie flat) on each board, and spray with a single coat of paint. Remove the greenery, and allow the paint to dry. Carefully rub off frisket, then attach the print to white paper backing and place in frame.

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.


But what about birthday gifts for Dad? Personalized presents, whether it's a monogrammed tie or suitcase, also make great gifts for men, especially around Father's Day. You can personalize anything by adding his initials or his name. Kids can even get in on the action by giving their dad personalized mugs or plaques as about Father's Day gifts. And don't let him forget your anniversary! A framed reminder of your wedding date or the birth of your first child can make for thoughtful, unique gifts for men.
Make Them Work For It - Similar to the switcharoo, you can simply wrap their present, then stick it in a gift box, then in a gift bag, and put some gift paper on top of it. It’s a tedious way for them to get a few laughs (comedies come in threes) while making them work for their gift and joking around with them on the way. This is a really fun way to add a twist.
Do you have something sitting at home that you never use? It might be tempting to wrap it up and give it away to someone else, but that is always a risky move. You don’t want to accidentally give a gift back to the person that originally gave it to you. Or, if the woman you give the gift to eventually finds out, she will surely be disappointed and not feel special.
This is the guy who doesn’t just maintain his facial hair; he styles it, he has precise tools and instruments that each serve a specific purpose. He’s much more prone to buy sunglasses online, rather than looking at the CVS rack and randomly selecting the blackest pair. If he owns more than one pair of shoes, he’s likely to fit on this list. A gentleman with style understands how to make an outfit work, because while clothes don’t make the man, they do play a vital role in one fundamental part of their lives: first impressions. He pays attention to body grooming and smelling good (men's cologne) a lot more, as well. From face moisturizers down to beard trimmers (if he’s into that sort of thing), and so on. It’s not just enough to shower, shave, and hop into clean clothes; every piece of their attire serves a purpose.

"I received this as birthday gift. It was an awesome experience opening up. A crowd gathered as… more everyone wanted to know what was in the Man Crate!!

This was the easiest web site that I have ever ordered from. I was able to create my own personalization for the Fleece blanket, right down to the thread color. I was able to keep changing it until I created the perfect color combination. The price was great and it was shipped in just a couple of days from when it was ordered. The blanket is excellent quality as well. No complaints here!!! Completely satisfied. I wish everything was that easy. I'll be a returning customer for sure. Thank you!!!

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.
Every year, you have one less gift you’ll be able to get them. We know mates on their twentieth anniversary who already have a handful of engraved, personalized items, and all the gadgets their inner child could ever want. This gets tricky, but it’s not a lost cause. For everything he has, you can branch-off and get him something else. He enjoys his fine liquors; get him a new glass set. He’s a collector; there’s a never-ending list of watches we’re accumulating here. When in doubt, build on what’s already been built upon. It may no seem as “custom” to you, but if they have a clear interest in it, they’re going to appreciate it more than you think.
As for our story books, they’re guaranteed to lend story time an extra fun vibe as kids experience the excitement of seeing their name in print. We even feature interactive CDs too.

On the move or off to school, our personalized backpacks are just thing for keepings junior’s books, school supplies, sports kit or toys organized, and better yet they’re easy-to-spot! And make sure your kids are hydrated to play by surprising them with personalized reusable water bottles with their names on the bottle.
Transform an old book into a pretty box for trinkets and other small items with this easy-to-make Christmas gift idea. Apply crafts glue to the inside back cover and close the book; let dry. Apply glue to the book's edges; let dry. Mark a rectangle on the first page about 1-inch from all sides. Use a crafts knife to cut along the mark through several pages. Remove the cut pages; continue cutting and removing pages until you've reached the desired depth. Seal the cut pages with clear glue to finish the keepsake box.

Most commentators on the subject will add that neither the Traditional gift list or Modern gift list is better than the other. It all boils down to the recipient’s tastes and interests, and the sentiment the giver wishes to convey, as to which list for that particular year yields the more appealing option for them. It is the thought that counts, especially the intention to commemorate each anniversary as a unique anniversary in its own right.
Taxes suck, but Tax-Free Weekend always hits around late July to early August and makes it all suck a little less. These have recently applied to digital sales as well, and can even help to shave-off the costs associated with digital media downloads and buying year-long memberships to some of your favorite streaming services. Certain stores and online platforms will recognize these days with a, “Take an extra X percent off” type deal. Our recommendation: capitalize on those.

For each year, we give you not only the themes, but also gift suggestions you can really use. We even have some cute anniversary date ideas if you need some inspiration. Since budgets and gift-giving traditions vary, we’ve suggested both inexpensive gestures and over-the-top ideas. Some of these ideas could work for more than one anniversary year, so if you need extra inspiration, read through the whole list. We hope you enjoy it, and we wish you lots of days worth celebrating, all through the year.


You will note that after 20 years, there aren't traditional gifts associated with every marital year, however, there is a modern theme for each year right up to 30 years of marriage. This reflects the need for a couple to continue to sustain romance and commitment as they progress through married life. Some years also have no floral symbol, gemstone or colour associated with them. We do, however, suggest useful gift ideas for every wedding anniversary year.
Fortunately, those days are over! With fantastic advances in technology, internet access from almost anywhere, and sites like ours, you can find amazing products to satisfy almost anybody’s wish list from the comfort of your own home! Why spend your season sorting through mounds of mass-produced items and searching for gifts that are all sold out when you can complete your holiday shopping with the click of a button or the tap of your finger?
In the 1920s, Emily Post, an American writer, attempted to solve the issue of what gift to give on the occasion of an anniversary by drawing up lists of anniversary themes in a book titled “Etiquette”, published in 1922. However, only some anniversary years were included in the book, the first, fifth, then every fifth year up to the 25th wedding anniversary. In 1937, the American National Retail Jeweler Association added additional years to the list, including all years up to 14 years of marriage, and every 5th year up to 50 years of marriage. These are known as traditional themes linked with each marital year. More recently, a contemporary list was created, and today, all the anniversary years from 1 up to 30 have been linked with a theme or material, and then every fifth year up to 75 years of marriage.
If he’s all about the outdoors, then it’s time to give him a hand and help him live the dream. There are endless camping, hiking, and outdoor activity gifts to grab for them. If you can get a look at their current setup, then you’ll know exactly where to go from there. For these gents, it’s about function, and being lightweight (since they’ll be hauling all this stuff on their own).
