For one, procrastination is not your friend. If you’re reading this in a panic, you’re not alone. There’s a lot of last-minute gifters out there, but from this point going forward, you can’t procrastinate. Nobody likes the anxiety of trying to grab a last-minute gift, only to find that all the shipping dates suck. Since a lot of the products we review are available on Amazon (what isn’t, right?), we’re big advocates of getting Amazon Prime to cut-down on delivery time restrictions. Even during the holiday season, they manage to pull off miraculous deliveries that still shock most of us.

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. 
We’ll start with the one that’s going to make your life the most simple: a gift receipt. These are like Willy Wonka’s golden tickets, giving you free range to correct your error as pain-free as possible. Even with these, you’ll still have to provide a form of photo ID in some places. It’s rare, but it’s something you don’t want to be caught without, especially if you’re stuck in the return line after a major holiday.

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.
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. For this, a relaxing experience day is just the ticket, or a celebratory night out with you, them, and a couple of others. Pay the tab on the food and drink, and give them a night they’ll never forget.
The perfect tech gift all depends on who you're thinking of gifts for — boyfriend, husband, dad, etc. Is he someone who loves using tech to explore and see things in new ways? Introduce him to the aerial photography craze with our huge selection of drones. Maybe he's more of a hands-on adventurer who'd enjoy capturing his exploits on an action cam. Or perhaps he's a pragmatist who likes to have information at his fingertips, in which case wearables like smartwatches and activity trackers could be right up his alley. While we can show you the best gifts for men based on our expertise, you're the one who knows the guy you're shopping for and what will make him happy.

Cute Christmas gift ideas that are customizable always win, and that's why we love these homemade Christmas coasters for family and friends. Print silhouette clip art onto heavy white paper and cut out the shapes. Use a pencil to lightly trace each silhouette onto the center of a wooden plaque. Trace over the pencil lines using a wood-burning pen fitted with a narrow cone point. Fill in the outlines by burning the silhouettes with a flow point on a wood-burning pen. Apply two coats of glossy polyurethane sealer to the coasters, letting each coaster dry between coats. Paint the beveled edges of the coasters gray, and let the paint dry before adding a final coat of polyurethane sealer. Glue four felt circles to the bottom of each coaster. 
One of the sleekest and smartest trackers on the market, Fitbit's Versa makes a great gift for the health-conscious traveler. Some of our favorite features: auto-exercise recognition and built-in guided workouts, 24/7 heart rate tracking, room to store hundreds of songs for phone-free listening, and an impressive four- to five-day battery life. Toss in a few interchangeable leather straps and gift them as a bundle.

If martinis are more your speed, try these wooden martini glasses. Compared to traditional glassware, wood is a much better insulator and can keep your drinks colder longer. The maker of these says the wood is carefully sanded to be velvety smooth and then it's finished with an FDA-approved sealant so that the wood won't interfere with the flavor of your drink. 
Don’t know what to get for the man that has everything? We do. There’s always explosive cutting-edge tech and one-of-a-kind gifts emerging onto the market every single day. Even if he says, “Don’t worry about it. I have everything I need.” Guess what? He doesn’t know what he’s missing. Whether he’s a runner, coffee drinker, gadget-savvy tech enthusiast, or anything in between, the perfect gifts for men are waiting below.
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.
If he loves to eat, grill it up, handle the kitchen, or he’s a major coffee connoisseur, then you’ve got a wide range of gifts you can get that he probably doesn’t have. There’s always cutting-edge culinary tech or new high-end cutlery that’s emerging onto the market, which we like to put our focus on from time to time. He may not be a master chef, but with your thoughtful gift(s), who knows? He could be on his way.

In the old days, shopping for gifts during the holidays was quite the experience. People like you and me were forced to brave the harsh winter weather, combat crowds of frantic shoppers, and scramble from store to store to find great Christmas gifts during the busy holiday season. Most of us were limited to whatever the local shops and big-box stores had to offer, so finding unique presents and specialty items was quite a chore.


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.
You’re able to set your newsletter frequency to weekly or monthly, and even edit your profile a bit. Categorize your favorite items from Gear Hungry posts, and get ready to post them to either Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+. You’re also able to leave ratings on your favorite gear and guides and get suggestions based on your preferences. Think of us as the quintessential Pandora radio, but for killer gear that you’ve been missing in your life.
The best gifts for kids celebrate their individuality. Find hundreds of personalized gifts for toddlers and children and use our easy customization tools to create unique presents that honor all the special youngsters in your life. For birthdays, holidays or times your child just needs a little support, create custom, personalized kids gifts with their name, photo, favorite colors and more for a memorable present they'll adore now and for years to come.
Whether that's true for you and your love or not, we took it upon ourselves to curate a list of paper and paper-inspired ideas your love is sure to cherish. With a wedding photo album keepsake you'll have forever, a magical Harry Potter book set for your favorite J.K. Rowling fan, and an on-the-go Instagram photo printer that'll help you keep track of all of your couple selfies, this gift guide is bursting with inspired ideas that you definitely didn't see coming.
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.
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.

The traditional gift for the 15th anniversary is crystal, and we have to say: It's what's on the inside that counts. Quartz crystals are used in many watches to help keep time more accurately. When selecting a watch for your boo, we recommend going with Fossil. The company has a blend of high-quality time-pieces and sparkly smartwatches to fit anyone's style. Some, like the styles pictured above, use quartz crystals to aid with time keeping.
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. 
We can’t tell you how to budget, but planning as far ahead of time as possible will keep you from experiencing unexpected expenses during rough seasons, and maybe even allow you to treat yourself for all the research and thoughtfulness you’ve done today. We do know that putting proper provisions in place allows you to stave-off all the anxiety and worry that comes with gift buying, and allow you to focus on fantasizing about their reactions.
November brings us one legendary sale, but before then, it’s all about Veterans Day sales to seriously stock up on housewarming gifts, home appliances, and small electronics. This is one of the more minor sales when it comes to gift-giving, but still a noticeable blip on the radar. If he’s a bit culinary guy, you can grab him something along the lines of a new countertop appliance, or take a look at the selection of grills. If he’s in a more snowy environment, it’s a good time to grab one of these for later and gift it during the summer months.
In 1985, the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) published its initial version of the Gemstone Information Manual. This manual has been adopted within the trade as the gold standard for disclosure of pearls, cultured pearls and natural gemstones. In that manual, the gemstones or precious metals that are associated with each wedding anniversary are listed for every anniversary year from the first to the 25th, and every five years thereafter up until the 60th wedding anniversary. It is interesting to note that there are some inconsistencies between this and other reputable sources as to the exact gemstone for each anniversary. This could simply reflect a difference due to the region of the world in which the list of anniversary gemstones was compiled. As such, the table in this section predominantly lists the gemstones according to the AGTA. Any variations in gemstones for a particular anniversary year as derived from other sources, are listed as alternatives for completeness, and to offer the reader a wider variety of options.  

If you’re not already a Gear Hungry member, you’re missing out on some serious perks. It doesn’t cost anything, it’s just a three-step process to make an account, and it’s primarily used for making epic wish lists. We’re popping the best gear on here every single day, from singular reviews to in-depth buying guides with immense coverage. When it comes to our gift section, we’re thinking forward about what the guy in your life is looking for.

While we can show you the best gifts for men based on our expertise, you're the one who knows the guy you're shopping for and what will make him happy.
One more thing to take into account is the clip-on coupons you’ll see with a lot of online stores. These sometimes give you an extra 5% or 15% off, but then, there are some that benefit you in order to optimize their delivery procedures. If you’re getting this gift plenty early (which we’re about to discuss), you can opt-in for these little coupons, and get cash back rewards or digital downloads at discounted prices, just for delaying the delivery window by a few days or a week. If you’re getting the gift for someone, and it’ll be here in plenty of time, then why not treat yourself a bit?
You work with the guy, you want to get something nice, but you just don’t know where to go. One of the main reasons to get a restaurant gift card is to tell them, “You deserve a night off, so this one’s on me.” There’s a little bit of careful planning that should go into it, though. Depending on your relationship with this guy, you’ll know a few basic details, like what city or town they live in, or what’s along the road on the way to, or coming back from work. The last thing you want is to get a gift card to a restaurant that’s going to be out of their way; you’re trying to make it convenient for them to get a meal essentially for free, so look at what’s along the way. This is a simple gift card to grab that doesn’t take too much knowledge, but buyer beware: try to get a feel for any possible allergies before you send them out for lobster.

Custom doormats make for functional and fun Christmas presents to surprise your friends and family with—especially if they recently moved to a new home. The “State of Love” doormat beautifully displays any U.S. state of your choice while allowing you to customize three lines of text—one above the word “home” and two below it. The shape of the state you choose is cleverly incorporated...

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.

He travels a lot, he’s constantly taking Uber in the big city when he’s on a business trip, or just doesn’t own a car. Nothing’s more thoughtful than giving them a safe ride home from one too many drinks at the bar, or a safe place to stay when they’re traveling abroad. Airbnb gives them the ability to stay in multiple countries, as well, so international travel doesn’t have to include expensive hotels and a depleted level of funds.
There is conflicting data about just how much sleep millennials get each night, but the general consensus is that you get more sleep on average than older generations. That can probably be attributed to your obsession with a healthy work-life balance. These products will help you stay comfy during those Netflix and chill sessions and may even contribute to better sleep.
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. Intensely appreciating the hoppy and bitter tastes with the Beer Tasting Flight makes the grass seem that much greener and the supermarket lights seem that much more fluorescent. less
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.
People are obsessed with essential oil diffusers. And why wouldn’t they be? They transform your home with good smells and good vibes. Shopping for someone who is always stressed (hello hi, that's me)? Bring peace and happiness into their life this holiday season with our favorite oil diffuser. We tested the most popular models a few months ago and found this one by InnoGear to be the best.

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.

From the smallest stocking stuffers for husbands to the most heartfelt Christmas gifts for Mom, we've got the gifts that will make this year extra special for everyone. Imagine a Christmas season without last minute shopping at crowded stores! Instead, imagine sitting down and having your Christmas gifts wrapped and under the tree with time to spare! Imagine time for wassail and stringing popcorn, listening to Bing Crosby and standing under the mistletoe!
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.
A more modern four-year-anniversary gift tradition is to choose an appliance, and that makes sense: Maybe when you registered for gifts, you were afraid of asking for too much, or didn’t know what you would use, or had a vision for what kind of married people you’d be that may not have actually panned out. That’s fine, not all of us are meant to live on homemade veggie juice!

Allison - I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He had been talking about wanting to get a… more pipe for about a year. This kit was the PERFECT!! He was so excited to get started, he finished the pipe in 2 days! I already had to buy him a new briar wood pipe block yesterday. He already has plans on new pipe creations and others wanting in on the action! This is the BEST site to find a gift for any MAN! I couldn't be happier with my purchase! Thank You, Man Crates! less
A custom mug is one of those ingenuous gifts that can work for practically anyone—a family member, close friend, coworker, teacher, next-door neighbor—you name it. What makes an ordinary mug extraordinary is how you customize it. And the Signature Style personalized coffee mug makes this easy and elegant. Simply add any name and select the colors you like and the unique design is created for...

"My boyfriend had a rough week at work, so I decided to Google "man gift baskets" and came across… more your site. I ordered this crate and did next day shipping to have it delivered to his work. I just got a text message about how awesome the gift was and how much he loved it. Your site is easy to use, I love the idea of the reminders, and cannot wait to shop with you guys again!" - Aly less
Buying for a girlfriend is slightly different than buying for your wife, but you will still apply many of the same principles. What does she like? Pay attention to the details so that she knows you care about her when you buy gifts for your girlfriend. Gifts for women need to be thoughtful and personal to really show you love them. Some of the best gifts for women are ones that remind them of something special the two of you share.
Backpacks are the best back to school gifts for students, especially if they are filled with some snacks and treats! For younger children, a cute critter bag or personalized Stuffie that can also double as a friend when school feels overwhelming make great gifts for children. For teens, consider getting them a messenger bag that will be as stylish as their new back-to-school outfits and leave all their friends asking where they got that cute new bag.
Jenna - I sent this crate to a long-term contractor of mine who deserved a cool and unique show of… more appreciation. He absolutely loved the gift (and probably the crate and duct tape wrapping even more!)--he said it totally made his day (and week!). I had the gift delivered to his office and he said all of his colleagues were standing around watching when it was delivered, wondering what it was and how in the heck he was going to open it. I wish I could have been there to see it! Thank, Man Crates! :D less

These DIY holiday succulent planters make a quick and inexpensive Christmas gift for mom (or anyone!) that will last for years. Succulents are an especially unique present with low-maintenance care, and they're perfect for mom, best friends, or co-workers. To create the personalized planter, wrap empty, clean tin cans with 1/4 inch braided red-and-white polypropylene rope. Secure the rope to the can as you wrap using a hot-glue gun. Slightly twist the rope to line up the candy cane-color stripes. Add an adorable Christmas gift tag using a thin piece of twine.
