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!
Following the anniversary gift types are the different gemstones that have been assigned to each year to reflect your ever-evolving bond and the significance of your relationship. And last are designated colors and color combinations that tie into and relate to the anniversary year’s overall theme. Together, all four of these components can be incorporated either in the actual anniversary gift you give or the way you commemorate the special day, or both.
"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

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.
"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
You want the best for your kids, and these gifts deliver. They are the best things you can put under the tree this year that will have them talking long after the season is over.

Women can be the hardest to shop for, but this list should give you a strong footing on the kinds of things she might like.

These items have been hand-picked to be woman-approved, so no matter which one you go with you’ll at least be given the benefit of the doubt.
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.
To celebrate your wedding anniversary, consider giving her a thoughtful and sentimental gift. This beautiful frame from Kate Spade is crafted in silver, outlined in turquoise, and features the words, ‘happily ever after’ engraved on the lower part of the frame.

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.
It can be fun to buy themed gifts; for instance, coming up with fun Christmas gifts for sisters or moms. Again, consider something that is special to her when you are developing your Christmas gift ideas for her. Another special occasion is her birthday. A great gift idea for her birthday could be as simple, yet thoughtful, as matching monogrammed mugs if the two of you enjoy drinking tea or coffee together. Something you share together can be a great birthday gift for her.
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.

"I bought this as a Father's Day gift for my dad, and he absolutely loves it! He has always wanted a… more smaller humidor, and has never had a cutting tool like the one in this package. I have purchased 3 other Man Crates in the past 8 months since I discovered this site. I cannot be more pleased with quality of the products, the level of customer service if I have any questions or issues with an order. This is all around 110% the best idea for any gifts! I refer ALL of my friends, family, and acquaintances!!" - Josh S. less

So you’ve gone to all the trouble to find what you thought was the perfect gift, only to read the expression on their face, and thank the stars above that you kept that gift receipt or proof of purchase. This is where you’ll have to pay serious attention to shopping online. Buying from stores that have brick and mortar establishments nearby will allow you to go with them, and physically exchange the gift for one of two things: store credit, or an item of equal or lesser value.

When it comes to shopping for birthday gifts for him or stocking stuffers for Christmas, make it all about something he can use and enjoy right away. Picking Christmas and birthday gifts for men doesn't have to be hard!
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.
