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.
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?

"My son gifted this to me for my birthday. I love to work with my hands, and this was perfect for… more me. I have to admit, I was intimidated with a fear of messing it up. I knew my son would want to see the finished work. After staring at the pieces on my bench for a couple weeks, I finally decided, it’s now or never! Every step carefully processed. I knew there were no 'do overs.' Slow and deliberate steps, but once I got started it was an obsession. It came out great." - Ken less

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.

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.
"My brother is officiating at my wedding tomorrow and does not need anything, so this was the… more perfect gift for the man who loves to make breakfast for his children and anyone else in attendance. He thought opening it was a hoot, and loved the products inside! Couldn't be happier about the outcome and would absolutely order another gift down the road. A million thanks!" - Leslie less
The time association rule directly affects what you should be spending, and how big of lofty a gift you should be looking at. Opting for smaller gifts is better for a short relationship time, whether you’re dating or just friends. If I have a friend for six weeks, and I knew their birthday was coming up, I’m going to get them something small that’s half-obligatory, half “Hey, we’re buds, have something nice.” The longer you know or are with someone, the higher the expectation is on the gift.
"I bought this for my son (a chemical engineer) for his birthday. He was very impressed with the… more quality of materials and how complete the set was. I had found other brew kits online, but they were made of plastic and other inferior materials that taint the flavor of the "brew" so this was a great find for a great price. Overall, I am completely satisfied with the product and the company. It was delivered the next day! I will absolutely be purchasing other items from Man Crates in the future!” - Deborah less
These retro-inspired coasters will take your parents or grandparents back to their childhood Christmas celebrations. Flashy centers and simple construction save surfaces and show off bold colors in any holiday living room. To create this DIY Christmas gift, use rounded-corner paint chips and vinyl flooring samples. First, round the corners of the flooring samples by tracing around the paint-chip corners and using scissors to carefully trim excess material. Use spray adhesive to secure a paint chip to the center of a vinyl sample. In a well-ventilated area, apply five coats of glossy clear sealer, allowing full drying time between coats. Affix felt pads to the coaster bottoms and start whipping up holiday punch.

Scuba Diving - This is something that a guy can’t justify spending the money on when it’s just going to be him. Not only that, but nobody wants to travel down in the murky blue without a mate by their side. If you know they’re lovers of the ocean and all things aquatic, then it’s time to slip on the wetsuit and roll back off the boat. These can also be coupled with a day out on the boat, which we are about to cover next.
When it comes to exchanging, you might hit restocking fees or shipping fees if you’re going to send it back to an online store or manufacturer. Restocking fees generally apply to electronics or other easily damaged items that need to be inspected and tested before they can be put back on the shelf. Even if you gently opened the box, they can still require new packaging, and again, it’s all depending on store policy. You can pay anywhere from five to twenty percent for a restocking fee, which will require you to fork up some more cash if you’re trying to get a gift of the same caliber.

All that being said, personalized gifts add a bit more oomph by letting the person know exactly how much you pay attention to them, or how in-tune you are with sentimental words and/or phrases. It can turn any gift from a simple object to something they’ll treasure for the rest of their lives. This writer has a customized Cross pen; it was an appropriate gift, given the profession, and engraved with one significant word. It’s still in use to this day and cherished above just about everything else. There’s some serious power behind personalization.
