A 30-year-old woman may desire personalized gifts for her birthday, jewelry, watches, home products, accessories, garden products, an iPad, a ring from her boyfriend, a sweet gift basket and others. What we will present today are several potential gifts which can be offered to a 30-year-old woman, regardless your relationship with her.
1. And the first one is a witty and unusual wine glass ($24.95) from PersonalizationMall. In the future, your recipient could toast in style with this crystal wine glass, that features whimsical birthday artwork. This is a one-of-a-kind glass for a one-of-a-kind girl.
2. Taking into account the birth month of your recipient, you can buy a flower necklace. You know that the month when we were born influence our life very much. If you believe in this kind of stuff, and also if your recipient does, a good potential gift is a dried flower placed inside of a resin pendant. This can turn into a great necklace which can be worn at the Opera or in other high places. The flower is set in a silver plated brass bezel. Normally, the necklace comes with a sterling silver chain, but if you have the money for it, you can buy a golden one. This product is available from UncommonGoods and is $48.
3. The previous product may pass as a personalized product, because you buy the flower necklace taking into consideration the birth month of your recipient. But it is not as personalized as this one: a beautiful hand-painted Scripture plate. For the price of $79.91, you can buy a set of 2 porcelain plates, showcasing a butterfly and words from the Scripture, carefully chosen to match the beliefs of your recipient.
These plates are not for eating; instead, they are suitable for wall display. They are available from Lamps Plus.
4. This is a top great for a 30-year-old woman, because as you can see it doesn't have too bright colors or themes that are suitable more for a teenager. It can be bought from Nordstrom and costs $38. The product is named Dee&Ray Céline colorblock top.
5. This is a gift for all occasions from Harry & David. It is a gift basket, filled with apples, peers, Cheddar cheese, strawberries, honey roasted nuts, savory smoked sausage and popcorn. This gift basket is $59.95.
6. This is another product related to food, which works only in the United States. We are talking about a city food tour ($100) from Cloud 9 Living, which offers a unique way to get a new perspective of the city. This is a great edible experience that will take your recipient on a great educational journey.
It really doesn't matter if we are talking about the first birthday of a boy or of a girl, because the potential gifts presented here are suitable for both genders. They are in general offered by people coming to the birthday party of that little child, not by his/her parents.
1. The first present is a pair of shoes for toddlers, featuring blue wool upper and double fuzzy grip closure. They cost $29 and are perfect for a baby in the wintertime. This product can be bought from TOMS, a company that sells shoes and eyewear products for everyone.
2. A rocking horse is a good idea for an older child, but if the kid can walk at the age of 1, he/she can also ride this horsey. A good option is the product you can buy from Hayneedle for the price of $89.99, because it comes with sounds too. This is a plush horse, whose body is colored in brown, just like chocolate, and white. In order to hear the sounds made by the horsey, you have to press its ears.
3. This product is great for a younger child too, not only for a 1-year-old: the developmental playset for the little shopper. This playset contains a banana with crinkle peels, a chime apple with crinkle leaf, an open/close rattle orange, a rattling crinkle cabbage, a sturdy tote bag and a rattling milk carton. This product is sold for $18.99 on Amazon.
4. A personalized gift will be always received better than an usual gift. If we discuss about a 1-year-old girl/boy, they will not notice if the gift is personalized with their name or not. But their parents will notice, so if you want to make a good impression, you can buy this 3-in-1 Zoobie blanket with pets. The one we recommend today is the ladybug blanket, available for $49.95 from PersonalizationMall.
5. If the child loves ladybugs, you can also buy this Wheely Ladybug, that will develop the motor skills of the child. This wooden product presents on the exterior a PVC-free faux-leather body. Its manufacturer says that it is created for many years to play. However, you have to respect the requirements of using this product only on smooth floors. The Wheely Ladybug is $70 and can be bought from Chasing Fireflies.
6. If the kid doesn't already have a cat or a dog, you can buy this Hold Me Tight Pillow, that could play the role of a pet. This is in fact a security blanket, that has a pillow form. It is completely hand knit and stitched and made from cotton. It is $42 from The Land of Nod.
So it is the birthday of your husband, right? You have to come up with some good gifts, otherwise you might upset him. Women don't realize that men like to receive gifts, just as much as they do and they believe that only if they hug them and kiss them is going to be enough.
1. A good and very cheap material present that can be offered to a husband on his birthday is the #1 Husband ($15), which is the perfect product for a morning beverage or late night brew. This mug has 3.75 inches in height and 3 inches in diameter. It is dishwasher and microwave safe.
2. You need to be very careful when buying a product like this, because your husband might get upset because you compare him to a goose. To make sure that this will not happen you can buy another one that will represent you. The price of $5.92 is only for the dutiful husband goose, which can be bought from Miles Kimball.
3. If you believe your husband should get more than a simple mug and a goose, you can buy a more expensive product, like this Trophy Husband Sports Ringer T, available also from CafePress, like the first product. This one is $22.50 and will allow your husband to look great also in tuxedos, even though this is a clothing piece normally worn on casual occasions. A T-shirt like this one is a perfect accessory for business outings. It is made entirely from pre-shrunk cotton and has a double-needled neck and trim.
4. Personal Creations offers for husbands this beautiful personalized framed print ($29.95). Although this is a personalized product, as this company says, you cannot personalize the image you see in the background of these framed prints, but also the message and obviously the name of your recipient. You can admire the tranquil beauty of a harbor lighthouse or, if you like better, a tree with a romantic sunset. The name can have up to 12 characters and the message up to 25 characters per line, 2 lines maximum. These prints come in a cherry frame.
5. Who said that only women should stay in the kitchen and cook all day long? Men can do this too and should do this, at least once in a while, to let their wives or girlfriends relax at a spa or go shopping with their girlfriends. For the activities your husband will perform in the kitchen, we have decided to show you this Trophy Husband 2011 Funny Apron by CafePress ($22). This is only an example of apron; the 2012 version will be soon available.
Offering a gift depends very much on the person that is going to receive your present, the event where you are going, the celebration, traditions and many other factors. So before going to a certain restaurant or location where you were invited for a special event, you have to consider very well the product you will offer as a gift. There are many occasions on which a gift is suitable, like for example a wedding, housewarming party, new baby party, birthday, anniversary, graduation, obtaining a new job, receiving an award and many others. You have to match very well the event itself with the present you will offer.
For today, we have selected as event, the birthday party of one of your friends and the first product that we thought to present is this “Make Your Own Monopoly Game”, a photo-opoly board game, as you will see. You have to choose 22 of your favorite photos and create a game that can be played on any occasion, not only on birthdays with your friends. Instructions are included in the package. This interesting kind of game can be bought from Amazon for the price of $25.72.
A personalized product should be offered to a special friend, especially if that person is a long-time friend. Everything that is related to wallets is also related to money right? So I believe that if you will offer a personalized wallet, your recipient will receive this product carrying a symbol as well, the one of having more money, to place it in this wallet too. This product measures 4.5 x 3.5″ when closed and has also 2 interior pockets and 6 card slides. It is made from black leather and represents an essential product that every man should have. You can buy this thing from PersonalizationMall for only $36.95.
What do men like most, after women and cars? Alcohol, obviously. And if the alcohol bottle you want to offer him is a personalized one, your friend will appreciate you even more. This is a good product to offer to a 21-year-old person that from now on can legally drink alcohol, but it is also an excellent product for a 41-year-old person, 56-year-old man and so on. You can say “Happy Birthday!” in a unique way, which will turn to be unforgettable for your recipient. Even though we recommend a bottle of wine, which is supposed to be cheap, this is $74.95, because it is personalized. It can be bought from PersonalizationMall.
If you have the money, you can send your friend to a cruise in Miami, Florida. He can escape on a Carnival Cruise for a period of 4 days ($179).
When you are invited to the birthday party of one of your friends or relatives that celebrates 40 years of existence, you can buy for him some gag gifts, but only if you are certain that he/she will not be offended by your gift. In this article, we will present several products that might affect the relationship between you and your recipient, if he/she doesn't have a strong sense of humor, so be careful when picking them.
1. This product is excellent and can be offered to anyone celebrating 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and so on years of existence, costs $16.49, can be personalized with the name of the recipient and also of the person that offers the present and can be bought from the Factory Card and Party Outlet. It goes under the name of Over the Hill Survival Kit. This product contains all sorts of funny presents, meant to show your recipient that he/she is getting old.
2. If the previous product can be received well by virtually any type of recipient, this one should be offered only to people that can take a bad joke. Even if the name of the product doesn't say too much: the Art of Appreciation Gift Basket ($39.99), its image says more than we need to know.
This is a gift basket that contains all sorts of sweet treats, which are obviously good and can be eaten by all the guests at the party; the problem is that the package has a tombstone shape.
3. Another funny gift is this corkscrew that has written on it “40 & Still Screwin’”. This is $10.41, is sold by Laid Back and comes in a beautiful gift box. It has 1.2 x 3.8 x 5.5 cm and weighs 2.6 ounces.
4. A birthday party would not be the same without personalized mugs or glasses, so a very good recommendation for a gift would be this Mud Pie 40 hand-painted wine glass ($24.69). This is a 16-house wine glass, great for a fun birthday party. The manufacturer warns the user to wash it by hand. It has 8.5 x 4.5 x 4.5″ and weighs 9.6 ounces.
5. Speaking of personalized glasses, here is another one, which is $15, yet seems more complicated: the “Fabulous 40″ glass. This is a black colored glass with crystal and glittered embellishments, that should be washed only by hand. It has 4.7 x 4.7 x 10.5″ and is great for the fun that it brings.
6. And now a personalized mug: the Question Mark “40″ Coffee Mug ($9.99). It is a 14 oz black ceramic mug with a humorous message and is dishwasher safe.
Because the first birthday of a child is a very important event, it is OK to offer the gifts you have prepared for the little one and also for his/her parents even before the happy event. And we will see several products in our article, that definitely must be offered before the birthday party of the little one.
1. A product like this is the pink first birthday Polka Dot candle, created by Bakery Crafts and sold on Amazon for $3.10.
2. Another great gift is this mud pie baby girls/newborn cupcake bib ($14.20). This can be offered at the birthday party, but also before. Unlike the previous product, which definitely must be offered before the party, since it will be placed directly on the birthday cake, this gift can be offered directly at the party. It is 100% made from cotton, can be washed by machine and has a cute chiffon cupcake applique.
3. Every child will love this Mickey Mouse jumbo airwalker party balloon. This one is $10.89, but you can find also other balloons, representing other Disney characters, which have higher prices. This one for example, has 52 inches in height, is double-sided and self sealing.
4. For the birthday party of a boy, you can prepare with a First Rebel Highchair Decorating Kit, which is $8.28 from Creative Converting. This gift contains a plastic floormat, plastic flag banner for tray and a plastic bib. This great all-in-one kit will make the recipient to enjoy more his dishes.
5. At one-year-old, no child is aware of the cartoon characters that fill his/her existence. They may recognize them, but in general they cannot say if a certain character is made by Disney and another one by Pixar. Children tend to love everything that is animated, this explaining very well the love they have for characters that we don't really like, because they have ugly faces and colors.
However, the Sesame Street characters aren’t ugly at all, being recommended to all children that watch this TV show. These characters can be encountered as plushes, cookies, party balloons, decorations, party supplies and many others.
6. Speaking of balloons, here are some that we recommend for the birthday party of a boy: the Royal Blue #1 balloons for infants, available from Party Destination. For the price of $5.20, you will receive 6 balloons like this.
7. Another preferred character from a famous TV series is Winnie the Pooh, which can have, just like the rest of the animated characters, different shapes and purposes. The one we recommend here is the Winnie the Pooh cake topper ($11.45).
In the United Kingdom you get the chance to buy a birthday gift from many companies and sites, almost all of them having a good reputation. A site that we definitely recommend is notonthehighstreet.com. Don't look at the name of this site and at its extension (.com), because this is a site that operates in the United Kingdom. The meaning of this title is that here you can find products that are not found on the high street; which means these are handmade products from artisans, that are normally sold in tiny stores around the corner all over the UK. Notonthehighstreet.com is a place where artisans from all over the world meet their customers.
Here you can find not only birthday gifts, but also products for anniversaries, graduation, wedding, Valentine's Day, Thank You gifts, new baby, Christening and other occasions. In the Birthdays category, for example, we don't have the products arranged according to other categories in which they may be included, but according to the most important events: the 18th birthday, 21st birthday, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th and 70th. On other sites, that sell gifts, you normally see these products arranged something like this: home products, jewelry, watches, purses, fashion, experiences, books, electronics, magazines, kitchenware, furniture and so on. Others, on the other hand, allow you to select the potential gifts according to the personality of your recipient. Thus you can choose from athlete, geek, ecologist, religious, chocolate lover, music lover and others.
Because we speak about notonthehighstreet.com and not about other site, we have selected to present several products included in the 18th birthday gifts category on this site.
And the first one is a personalized vintage rose necklace, sold by Hurley Burley, an artisan located in London. This jewelry is a gorgeous sterling silver, rose quartz and freshwater pearl necklace, that makes a treasured gift for any special occasion. This product is 45 GBP.
Another gift recommended to a lady celebrating her birthday in the United Kingdom is this Lace Detail Sun Dress (55 GBP), made entirely from light organdie cotton and available in white. This dress is made by BlinkBeach from Somerset.
We come back to jewelry and present this personalized friendship bracelet by Lily Belle (49 GBP). This product will be delivered to you from Surrey. Its manufacturer is proud that this friendship bracelet is just like the one you have seen in Vogue Magazine. It is a timeless piece of jewelry, easy to wear and which can be personalized with the initial of your recipient or with any other symbol. It is a sterling silver bracelet, made using silky cord.

A girl/woman likes personalized gifts, jewelry and watches, eco-friendly gifts, clothes and accessories, garden products, electronics, books, home products, beauty and spa pampering gifts, experience gifts, gift baskets and other inspirational presents, that could brighten her day.
Speaking of inspirational gifts, we will present today several potential presents that a girl/woman could receive from her friends and family on her birthday.
1. And the first inspirational present is this “Believe in Yourself” lumbar pillow, that allows your recipient to get inspired, thanks to a plush, extra long pillow filled and topped with 100% cotton. You can design your bed and make it inspirational for you and friends that see your room. You can find this special present on PBteen. Its price is $34.99.
2. The next product is again a lumbar pillow, only that having a different inspirational quote: “Change the World.”. Just like the previous product, this one too is detailed with crewel embroidery. Obviously, you can buy it from the same PBteen store. However, the price of this pillow is $29.99.
3. And the last product we present coming from this company is the “Follow Your Dreams” pillow. This one has the same price as the first product, is an embroidered artwork, that reverses to white. You can buy as many lumbar pillows as this one to create a unique look in your bedroom.
4. Then we have a coffee table for art lovers, great for its inspirational purposes. Amazon sells this product for the price of $13.59. This coffee table offers a sneak peak into the wildly creative imagination of top illustrators from all over the world.
5. Now how about a boxed stationery set? This is the perfect note to keep you inspired and a stationery-lover’s dream, because it features 24 cards and envelopes, with a large variety of labels and stickers, great for those moments when you lose the inspiration and the power to carry on. Amazon sells this product for $79.90.
6. Because women are attracted to jewelry, as we have said in the first paragraph, I believe the Kate Middleton Engagement Ring would be a great choice for the birthday of a woman. However, if we are talking about your girlfriend, a gift like this might have another signification. So if you're not ready to propose to her or if you don't want to be misunderstood, you should buy her something else. This product comes with one year money back guarantee (100%), and makes a statement that honors Lady Diana's memory and William and Kate’s royal romance. It can be bought from The Bradford Exchange Online and costs $99.
An 85-year-old person is more attentive to their health than younger people, because they know that every cold or flu can be fatal. So for today, we have decided to present several cosmetic and pampering gifts, that can maintain the health of a lady.
1. A good gift is a plush massaging wrap. This is good also for women that spend all day long at their computers. This nap wrap is designed by Brookstone and costs $34.99. How does this thing work? Simply wrap the massager around you and you will immerse into a world of relaxation. For this, you will have to use 2 AA batteries, that unfortunately are not included. After wrapping this massager around your neck, you have to click on a small black button, that will make this little thing work. The minute you click on that button, you begin to feel the therapeutic purpose of this nap wrap.
2. Another product great for massage, only that this time an entire bed, is the massaging bed rest, that can be bought from the same seller ($99.99). Massages are good for eliminating the stress. Treat yourself to luxurious support in bed anytime. There are several massage programs that you can select, like for example an invigorating, pulsating massage or a stimulating vibration massage, that has 2 speeds: low or high. You can read or watch television while the massaging bed does all the work for you.
3. Beauty trends nowadays speak about the benefits of using the argan oil. Because we have heard of it, we have thought to present it today as a potential gift for an 85-year-old woman. The product we have chosen is the Moroccanoil Restorative Hair Mask (8.5 oz), that can be bought from Amazon for $34.99. This is an intensive therapy treatment that penetrates deep into the hair, reconstructing its structures.
4. Now how about a high-tech product for a perfect skin? To show that lady how much you appreciate her, you can buy this Clarisonic skincare brush ($195) from Sephora, which is a professional brush that uses the Sonic technology in order to cleanse the skin of your recipient. This technology was used for the first time on toothbrushes and now it is used on a high scale on skincare brushes. It is said to change the way how we cleanse our skin, thanks to the frequencies with which it regenerates the skin and removes makeup 6 times better than traditional methods. This gift contains besides the brush and its charger, a sensitive brush head, hydrogel cleanser, nourishing care cleanser and refreshing gel cleanser.
Great gag gifts can be found on prankplace.com. They are dedicated to all sorts of events, being divided in many categories: birthday gags, office gags, bumper stickers, T-shirts and hats, silly toys, costumes, drinking stuff and many others.
Birthday gags are also of many types, according to the age of your recipient and gender. So we can have 16th birthday gags, 21st birthday gags, 40th birthday gags, 50th birthday gags, over the hill, for men, for women and so on. Let's consider several birthday gag gifts for a person celebrating 21 years of existence.
1. The first is the relighting birthday candles set, great if you and your friends want to laugh your lungs out. The recipient will try to blow the candles out, but they will just keep on relighting, generating loud laughs. A candle like this is $0.99.
2. It doesn't matter if we are speaking about a birthday party of a girl or a boy, all these products mentioned here work in both cases. Just like this Happy Birthday Bill ($1.99). This currency looks and feels real, only that instead of the face of a president, you can see a cake, gifts and all sorts of other favors that are used at the birthday party.
3. Now how about some science fiction items? These party rats are ideal for night blogging. If you haven't heard yet of the party rats, you should know that they have no connection to those animals that no one likes. Here we are talking about colorful, plastic, rodent lights on the finger of your recipient and other people participating at that birthday party. You can wave your hands in the air like you just don't care and create a beautiful disco effect, even in your bedroom. Your very own personal light show can take place at your house and all for the price of only $7.98.
4. In general, celebrating your 21-year-old birthday is done in a bar. So, a possible present that you could receive from your friends is this Turning 21 Bar Exam. This is a sort of game that celebrates this event in a unique way. You will be forced by your friends to perform various challenges, such as dirty dancing with a stranger or tying a cherry stem into a knot. This is $7.98.
5. You are finally legal! You are 21! Cheers! Now you don't have to use a fake ID to go to bars and consume alcohol. A great possible gift is this Cheers to 21 Years ($3.98) shot glass, that allows you to start the party as you should.
