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

Give the gift of a hand-painted Mason jar or glass container this holiday season. They make gorgeous vases, makeup brush holders, or pencil cups. To craft this Christmas gift, paint the outside of the jars with two coats of paint. We mixed several shades of pink with white to create a range of hues, but any color scheme works. For a touch of glam, mask the top of the jar with painter's tape and cover the bottom with glitter spray paint.

The first step is to initiate membership and set up a style profile. She will have the option to consult with a stylist and pre-approve the items before they ship. 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.
Every holiday season, I always end up encouraging someone to buy the Sephora perfume sampler as a gift. Ten years ago or so, my grandmother bought me this gift set for the holidays and it honestly changed my life. I knew nothing about perfume, but I was able to dabble in a few best-sellers thanks to this kit. When I was done, I picked my favorite (Marc Jacobs Daisy) and redeemed the coupon in the gift set for a full-sized bottle of it. I still use Daisy today. This might be at the bottom of the list, and I might be recommending it for the random person in your life, but this is a life-changing gift and it’s actually great for anyone and everyone.
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!
One last tip is to shop for materials that hold these patterns well, or at least compliment them if they’re apart of different clothes. You can rarely go wrong with leather, cotton and a touch of suede every now and again. Thicker fabrics that stand up to the wear-and-tear that they’re going to put them through during the daily grind, you know? Alright, we’ll get off clothing, and hit the next topic now.
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.

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.
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.
