This coaster quartet takes shape with plain porcelain tiles painted with musical motifs. Download and resize free musical instrument clip art, then shade the shapes with a pencil so you can see the design on the reverse side. Flip the patterns over and place on ceramic tiles; trace around the shaded shapes to transfer a faint outline of the patterns to the tiles. Attach rubber cabinet bumpers to the backs of the tiles to protect surfaces and keep the coasters from shifting, then fill in or paint around each silhouette with a thin paintbrush and porcelain paint.
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.
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.

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.

Maybe she would appreciate flowers delivered to her door on a monthly basis. Or maybe she would enjoy adding a personalized necklace to her jewelry collection. You could also consider pampering her with some delightful body lotions and bath soaps – she is worth it!
Christmas present ideas for teens can be a little harder to come by, but think about giving them something that's just for them. For the teen girl who loves to play guitar in her band, get her a personalized poster or plaque with her name on it to decorate where she practices. For the teen boy who loves to support his sports team year-round, get him a locker room print or jersey of his favorite team.
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.
These guys usually have hobbies that are a bit more technical, relying on their hands, minds, and a keen sense of what they’re doing. Automotive guys who always have a parts car, or spend some of their weekends getting their hands dirty, or guys who enjoy DIY, building models and woodworking, are just a few of those who want something they can use and could care less about how it looks.
Three years ago, I bought the J. Crew Chateau Parka in royal blue. It was a bit of a splurge, but I wanted a coat I could dress up or down and wear in not-as-cold weather in addition to my huge, puffy winter parka. Since buying it, I've worn it hundreds of times. Even this month alone, I've worn it a bunch. The coat is still in perfect condition, and its timeless look is still very much in fashion. The pockets are not only stylish, but useable—and the zippers give it a city chic look and feel. The fur comes off the hood, too! This jacket is one of my favorite things, and I think it would make a great gift for any woman into fashion who lives in a place where you sometimes need a coat. It comes in multiple colors, but red, black, and green are my favorites this year.
Choose a pretty Christmas pattern, like poinsettias, and impress your coworkers with a crafty gift that's easy to make in bulk. Roll clay to 1/4-inch thickness on parchment paper and refrigerate for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the clay from refrigerator, keeping it on parchment, and place on an even surface. Press the rim of an ovenproof bowl into clay, and cut around bowl with a crafts knife. Press a rubber stamp into clay to create pattern; if it sticks, lightly oil stamp surface. Lightly oil inside of the bowl used as a circle template. Place clay circle in center of bowl, gently molding it to sides, then place in oven and bake as directed on clay package. Once cool, remove clay bowl from mold and lightly sand edges if necessary. We love this Christmas gift for family and friends, too.
Shopping for good gifts can be difficult at times, and it is often said that women can be the hardest to shop for. You don’t want to go wrong and choose a gift that isn’t something that she will use and enjoy. Ideally, you should look for a great gift with wonderful value. You want something that she will actually use and get something out of as well as something that she will truly enjoy and appreciate. We have chosen these ten great gifts ideas for women that are perfect for the lady in your life.
"Manly arts such as flying jets, riding cross country on a motorcycle, designing and building my own… more homes. Learning to paint with oils, running a small business, baking my own breads. Brewing beer, distilling and aging whisky. But I never bought a 5 pound pork belly until a week ago. Local butcher, apply the rub from Man Crates, bag and wait....but... I have never built my own cold smoker either. I had a week to complete that project. A little design and engineering from youtube and the web helped. Combination apple wood and hickory!! Stunning results. Perfection. Bacon with eggs, bacon with roasted brussels sprouts, bacon bits with tofu and vegetables and bacon with bacon." - Alan less
We’re also going to advise that you don’t handle the return at the biggest or necessarily closest location. Crowds get nuts, and if there’s one thing we’ve seen plenty of times, it’s someone in the line ahead of us, battling a manager or concierge member about their policy. It’s lengthy, and they (the store staff) try to be nice about it, but it’s a time-eater. Returning online, nine times out of ten, is going to be more convenient for you.
The holiday season means a little more celebrating (ahem, wine), but that doesn’t have to be bad! Put that collection of wine corks to use with this creative Christmas gift. A wine cork base makes a bulletin board both functional and artsy—and we love the idea of hanging Christmas cards on it for the holidays. Choose a frame deep enough to hold whole corks, or cut the corks in half lengthwise with an extra-fine razor saw (available at crafts stores). Secure the corks to the frame backing using wood glue.
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?
"Received as a Christmas gift. just tried the first batch today. as a gin drinker, I have to say… more this is better than any mainstream store bought gin I have ever tried! I started a second batch today as well. Do not think the first batch is going to make to the weekend! Highly recommend, fun to make and tastes better than any gin I have tried. Can not wait for my friends to try it!" - Chris less
Another fantastic product that is gaining popularity is an essential oil diffuser. These are little devices that you add water and just a few drops of an essential oil of your choice too. Then, they diffuse the scent of the essential oil throughout whatever space they are in. Different essential oils have different benefits, so this can be a wonderful way to help her with a variety of things from getting over colds faster to getting to sleep easier or just simply filling her home, workplace, or even car with lovely scents in a more natural way than traditional air fresheners.
If you’re zoning-in on their interests, use the knowledge at your disposal to garner a good foundation. If you’ve heard anything in passing, such as, “I’d really like to do this, but I don’t have X to do it with,” you just figured out something vital: they don’t have everything they need to complete their desired tasks, and you now have a much more narrow margin of error. Bonus points if you remember exactly what they said they needed, even if it’s something that’s not inline with your interests.
"I’m jealous! This crate was for my husband, but oh my goodness, can I just say we both are loving… more it!?!! The smokey flavor of the maple syrup is amazing! My husband loves Old Fashions so this was perfect for him. But now they may be my new favorite as well! The bitters are amazing too! It’s always been hard for me to find bitters that make a drink good but wow! These are great!! The glasses are made in Germany and much nicer than I expected. The crate is great and makes the gift fun and unique! I highly recommend!!" - Kelly less
The holidays can be a busy time, but you shouldn’t be stressed when you’re out doing your Christmas shopping or looking for gifts online. Here at Harry & David, Christmas is one of our favorite times of year. We love all the gorgeous details of the season, from the Christmas gift baskets and gourmet Christmas gifts to the rustle of gift-wrap, the twinkling of lights, the slow drift of snowflakes, and the gleam of ornaments on the tree.
You’ve probably heard of, seen, or owned a Le Creuset dutch oven. They are one of the most popular wedding gifts for newlyweds and, like KitchenAid stand mixers, a kitchen staple for adults everywhere. When I was shopping for my wedding registry earlier this year, an employee at Williams-Sonoma encouraged us not to register for a Le Creuset, but instead a Staub dutch oven. I became curious and started noticing my favorite food bloggers posting meals in Staub cookware on Instagram—and I recognized that my favorite fast casual food place, Cava, used them to display food. THEN, we tested dutch ovens at Reviewed and our favorite overall was the Staub! Clearly these dutch ovens are hot right now, so get them for the person in your life who loves cooking. You can’t go wrong.
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.

We understand that you might even be more in the dark than that. People often get gifts for their friends, their crushes who are also acquaintances, bosses, co-workers. For those guys, gift cards are a surefire way to go. It’s thoughtful without being too personal, allowing them to know that you care, that you want to get them something they can use (which is also good for the practical man we described in our last section), and helping to alleviate the anxiety that comes along with the obligation. If you look at our 30 most popular gift cards for men article, you’ll see a slew of different things you can do. We’ve broken them down into a gauge system, allowing you to pinpoint the most practical one to grab.
Spending more doesn’t make the gift more valuable; in fact, it can actually spark more of an argument than just ignoring the event, and not getting him a gift at all. If you’re the SO, you might spark a feeling of indebtedness from the gift recipient. Even in our progressive world, there are still issues where men will feel inadequate based on their spouse earning more than them, providing more “value” to the family (however they like to measure it), and so on. Getting a gift that’s expensive or out of an acceptable price range, could send a bad message. Men are simple, and enjoy simple gifts; study what you believe they’ll want, but don’t overthink it and psych yourself out.
That last rule is why you’ll see men with square watches, generally with broader bands than standard watches. Pocket squares, sharp-angled ties, and flattering patterns all play into the rugged stud style, as well. If you end up going for a tie, go with stripes, lines, or a plaid design. It’s all straight-cut, giving more dimension to the angles of their face, and their body.
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
These slippers have a 5-star rating on Nordstrom from over 3,000 reviews! The Dakota slipper has been around for years, combining fashion and comfort into one. You can even wear the shoe outside, as it has a rubber sole. Speaking from experience, you can’t go wrong with UGG slippers as a gift. In the past six years, I have given a different pair of UGG slippers to my mom, grandmother, grandfather, fiancé, and brothers – and each time, they were a hit.
The My Boot Trees make magnificent unique Christmas gifts for those boot-lovin’ loved ones on your holiday shopping list this year!

Each pair even includes two black wooden tie-on tags for a touch of personalization. Hand created right here in...
Corporate Casual - A straightforward way to wrap a corporate casual gift, say at an office party or outing to a co-worker’s birthday after work, is to grab an inexpensive belt from your nearest store and wrap it around their present. It’s low maintenance, and while it allows them to see what the present is, it’s a corporate-friendly way to go about it and get a quick smile from the guy in question.

This is a serious event in his life. He’s worked, planned, and gotten ready for this day for potential years. This calls for something for his business, something that he may one day pass down to his children when they inherit it. Custom frames for their first dollar, posh decorations for their office, or even a nice, strong bottle of top-shelf liquor with a custom label (that’s one they’ll probably bring home, but it’ll mean the world to them in their liquor cabinet).

Gift shopping can be hard. No matter if you’re shopping for a sibling, a longtime spouse, or a co-worker, the act of picking out the perfect gift can be overwhelming. What does she want? What doesn’t she already own? What color would she want it in? Is she allergic to anything? Does she like to read? What is her favorite scent? So many questions, so little time to buy.
