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.
In the 1920s, Emily Post, an American writer, attempted to solve the issue of what gift to give on the occasion of an anniversary by drawing up lists of anniversary themes in a book titled “Etiquette”, published in 1922. However, only some anniversary years were included in the book, the first, fifth, then every fifth year up to the 25th wedding anniversary. In 1937, the American National Retail Jeweler Association added additional years to the list, including all years up to 14 years of marriage, and every 5th year up to 50 years of marriage. These are known as traditional themes linked with each marital year. More recently, a contemporary list was created, and today, all the anniversary years from 1 up to 30 have been linked with a theme or material, and then every fifth year up to 75 years of marriage.
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.

This Christmas gift makes an adorable office decoration or home accessory. Colorful baker's twine and papier-mache come together to create a too-cute monogrammed Christmas gift perfect for mom, best friends or sisters. Embellish a flat wooden frame with varying widths of wrapped twine on opposite corners. Then display a twine-wrapped papier-mache letter inside the frame opening. For a full Christmas theme, gravitate toward red and green twine.
I ordered several of these blankets for Christmas Presents and they were a hit! Personalization Mall shipped them so quickly (probably within 48 hours of ordering), the embroidery was beautifully done with no mistakes, and the blanket was extremely soft. I was amazed at the price I paid and the quality I received. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a perfect blanket or gift.
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).
For the fashionista in your life, consider giving her a subscription to the Trunk Club. She can get a rotation of high quality apparel and shoes on a monthly or seasonal basis. 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.
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.
Erasable labels are an easy Christmas stocking stuffer and upgrade any kitchen storage container. Create your Christmas gift using colorful repositionable vinyl stickers that accept chalk markers. Use a punch to cut stickers into fun shapes. Remove the paper backing and position the label on the container of your choice. Before you deliver the Christmas gift, add holiday wishes to the label, and remember to include a piece of chalk!
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.
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.
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.

Skydiving - Yeah, we joked about it, but it’s a thrilling experience. If he’s an adrenaline junky, the guy who just can’t get enough of life in the fast lane, this will make his head spin. These are also systematic with parachuting and hang gliding, though those usually require a more remote location. Falling safely out of the sky throws caution to the wind, while still playing it safe and enjoying the time of your life.

"My sister gave me this for Christmas. The packaging and the content where fun, though I am still… more not sure if she was trying to kill me or just test my manhood. If you know someone who likes spice than this is the the choice for them. Just down right fun to open and fun to enjoy. How much hot is to hot? There is only one way to find out." - Tim less
There is a myth out there that a gift is “better” if it’s more expensive, but that isn’t true! In fact, most women will appreciate a well thought-out gift much more than an ordinary gift that cost more money. It is easy to go to the nearest store and buy the first thing you see. Instead, take a little more time to think of a unique gift. The fact that you took the time will guarantee that she’ll love it.
Some guys are far more attentive to their personal style and fashion. How many pairs of boots/shoes does he own? Is he big on rings, watches, sunglasses and the like?

Nothing But Blue Skies - Work’s beating them down, and their body is a wreck. Who can afford to only work forty hours a week these days? An experience day at a pampering, relaxing retreat, all just for one day, is enough to convince them to take a load-off for once. It’s near impossible to justify a small vacation, but a one day only pampering event is hard to refuse. It allows them to still provide, and enjoy a guilt-free experience that’s selfishly about them, and nothing else.

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.

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.
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.
