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.

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
Now, we get to the most notorious American shopping holiday, heard ‘round the world: Black Friday. This, along with the predecessor of Thanksgiving Day doorbusters, make up one of the greatest and most iconic shopping experiences in America. In recent years, it’s been rolled-up into a three-day extravaganza with our next addition but still offers some killer digital sales. We’re not going to recommend venturing out into the wild, wild world of Black Friday shopping, but sitting online at home is definitely the way to go.

Does the guy on your list identify with any of these?

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.
Boil it down to its most basic elements, and it’s simple: men don’t want to be an inconvenience. We’re all creatures of habit, and our interests are pretty straightforward. If you’re the SO, you’re spending enough time with your guy to know what their main interests are. However, that’s not always enough to know what to get them. Even if your guy has a niche hobby or specific interest, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re going to love whatever you get them. There’s a way to identify their next step in their hobby, and we’re going to teach it to you.

Offroad Fury - Do they like spending a good amount of time in the great outdoors? Similar to the racetrack situation, you get to grab a few ATVs or a couple of dirt bikes, and hit the great wilderness. This is a total day from start to finish, so you’ll get the entire campsite ready, hit the dirt roads and wide open range, and return back to hit a hike before the stars come up. This one is an all-day affair of giving them the best of the best, and you might surprise yourself with how much of a good time you’ll have, too.
"I purchased this crate for our boss from the crew. We paid extra to ensure it came bound in duck… more tape. The look on his face was priceless. After tearing through that and once got to the crate it was comical. I don't know who enjoyed the gift more; us for the pure enjoyment of watching him break a sweat busting into the crate and finally taking a hammer to it, or him for the goodies packaged inside. It was a great gift, which he really seemed to appreciated. I think he may get another crate next year!” -Lani 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.
If he’s all about the outdoors, then it’s time to give him a hand and help him live the dream. There are endless camping, hiking, and outdoor activity gifts to grab for them. If you can get a look at their current setup, then you’ll know exactly where to go from there. For these gents, it’s about function, and being lightweight (since they’ll be hauling all this stuff on their own).
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.

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.

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).
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.
