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).
To celebrate the love between you and your girlfriend, for her birthday, we recommend you to buy several romantic gifts. It would be preferable to add a bouquet of roses and also a candy box to the package.
1. The first product which we believe is great for a girlfriend is the Forever in Love Chair ($22.99). This shows a couple of bears kissing. It is an affordable and personalized gift for boys and girls alike and is available from Bears in Chairs. The personalization is done by handwriting the name of your girlfriend on one arm of the chair and your own name, on the other. As you can see in the above image, this gift can be decorated with a bunch of flowers. If you don't want it like this, you can buy several roses and place them there by yourself. In this way, you can avoid buying an expensive bouquet.
2. If we are talking about your girlfriend, most likely you know her measures and what T-shirt to buy for her. We recommend this supersoft V-neck tee ($20) from Nordstrom. It has an oversized cut and longer length, being great for everyday activities. It is available in many colors, such as: red bunch, powder, midnight, lavish, cherry bomb, blue dust, black, teal-bayou or white. The brand that has manufactured this particular T-shirt is Frenchi.
3. After buying a piece of clothing for your girlfriend, you can also accessorize her with this Global Girlfriend Watermelon Diversity necklace ($8.74) from Target. It is made from glass beads and includes a lobster claw clasp to keep it secure.
4. Another product from Global Girlfriend is this Indigo Antique Sari Holiday Bag ($17.48). You can add a stylish new accent piece to the wardrobe collection of your girlfriend, with this canvas bag that features a handwoven silk liner, great for any fashionista. Just like the previous product, this one too can be bought from Target.
5. If you know your girlfriend likes to wear hats like the one we see above, you can buy a very special one: the Army Girlfriend Military Trucker Hat by CafePress ($12). This hat is made from a resilient polyester foam in the front and from nylon in the back. It comes with an adjustable headband for a perfect fit.
6. This is again a product related to Army, this time with the naval forces. It works especially if you are an Army officer. However, this is not another T-shirt or hat, but a pillow, which can add stylish fun to any room. This is the Navy Girlfriend Military Throw Pillow ($20) by CafePress.
There are several interesting gifts on 24studio.co.uk that I want to present. Because we were asked to write about several products you can offer to a special friend on his birthday, I have selected to see the offers of the month on this site. From all the available offers, I have selected only 8. I hope you will enjoy them.
1. How about a twin pack box containing Cadbury chocolate bars? This product is 8.99 GBP and represents a very sweet product and I am not talking only about the sugar contained in the chocolate bars.
2. Another product created by the same Cadbury company is the Cadbury cow gift set (12.99 GBP). The product is represented by 2 milk carton shaped chocolate boxes that have included 200 g of dairy milk chunks. As you can see in the above image, the package contains also a soft toy representing a cow.
3. Because Christmas is approaching, we have thought to present this personalized sweet stocking (7.99 GBP). This product, like the ones before, comes with Cadbury products. About 140 g of goodies manufactured by Cadbury. The personalization means that you can write on the red section of the sock the name of the recipient (maximum 11 letters).
4. One more time I say that a sweet is always appreciated, whether you offer it to a man or a woman. The Cadbury jigsaw contains besides a traditional jigsaw scene, 2 x 230 g dairy milk bars. The jigsaw has 1000 pieces and is a limited edition. The price of this potential gift is of 14.99 GBP.
5. Add some bling to your phone with this mobile cover (4.99 GBP). It comes with a screen protector. This product is destined to BlackBerry Curve and iPhone 3 and 4. It is available in 2 designs, presented above.
6. If your friend likes Audrey Hepburn, I believe the Audrey Hepburn mug (2.99 GBP) is going to be a good gift. However, taking into account that this is very cheap, my recommendation is to buy this mug and also one of the sweets mentioned above. This product is made from ceramic and has a poster with Audrey Hepburn attached. It is dishwasher safe.
7. Do you like the Tweety character? How about your friend? If he does, don't hesitate to buy the Tweety Pie pyjamas. This product is made entirely of cotton and is available in 3 sizes: small, medium and large. It doesn't matter what is your choice, because the price is the same: 12.99 GBP.
8. It may seem like a gift for children, but these Minnie socks (9.99 GBP) are for everyone.
When you have friends, you have to talk to them, share emotions with them, go to parties together or perform all sorts of activities that require money. So when it comes to celebrating a birthday of one of your friends, it is natural for you to search for some cheap products. Everyone is searching for cheap items on the Internet, this is why I wanted to ease your work if you want to see several great ideas for a potential gift.
The products can be bought from prezzybox.com, that has “gifts for everyone”. Luckily for the girls, the 3 products presented today are dedicated only to females.
1. I will start with a jewelry tree by Menu (34.95 GBP), which is not only a decorative item, but also a functional one, allowing you to place your jewelry pieces on it, like it happens in the actual jewelry stores. This product is a little piece of art, designed by Louise Christ, having the height of 28 cm and the diameter of 9 cm. This little tree was created thanks to a high-gloss polished aluminium, which ensures the simplicity of the design. This beautifully sculptured masterpiece is the number one product in my list and I recommend it to everyone that wants to transform a good friend into a very good one.
2. It is hard to win over the previous product, still I will try to do this with the product presented at number 2: a little ecosystem to nurture and cherish, the Ecosphere. This product is 99 GBP, but it is worth all this money. Before starting to say that this is not exactly a cheap product, let me say that I have chosen it, because it is a very special product, that contains a real sealed ecosystem. The product comes with microorganisms, algae and a shrimp. You don't even have to feed the little shrimp, all you have to do is to provide a safe environment for this ecosystem to exist and plenty of natural or artificial light. This is a good product for the lazy people that want an aquarium, because it doesn't require to clean the water.
3. Every girl/woman likes the chocolate. But there is something else women like: pizza. And when you combine these foods, you obtain a chocolate pizza that is sold on prezzybox.com for 14.95 GBP. This represents the perfect treat for a chocolate lover. You can imagine that there is no pizza involved in this, only the shape of a pizza. The last image presents the strawberry and champagne pizza, that has 7 inches in diagonal, improved by the yummy Belgian milk chocolate base.
On personalcreations.com, you can see some of the best personalized gifts for friends that can be found on the Internet. The first product that caught my attention was the Friends Are Angels product. 100% of the people who have bought this throw, because this is the correct name of the product, will recommend this product to one of their friends.
The price of this product is of $39.99 and you can personalize the product by adding your personal message, that must contain up to 20 characters. But I can see that there is allowed also another message that can contain up to 20 characters again. You can also select the possible arrival date, taking into consideration the earliest date provided by the seller.
But why to select another message when the default message is so beautiful? The message says that “Friends are angels who lift us up when we believe our wings have forgotten to fly”. This is so beautiful; don't change this message, unless you buy this product and you buy another one that will contain your personal message. Another product that is usually offered between girls is the We Are Goddesses mug, that has 11 oz. This product is definitely cheaper than the previous product, costing only $12.99 and it represents the girls and their name written somewhere at the bottom of the mug. Like in the previous case as well, in this case 100% of the customers who have bought this product would recommend the product to other people.
Other potential gifts, except mugs and wooden frames, I represented by definition planters, decorative wine boxes, especially for men (I don't believe that a girl/woman will be very happy when receiving this decorative wine box), key rings with charms, team gift bucket sets, crosses for the faithful persons, glass keepsake boxes and many others. I liked very much the definition planters and I would like to say more about this product. For example, when you get a definition planter for your mother, you will get the planter that defines what a mother is. And in our case, it is said that a mother is a female parent, it is a person that teaches you, that listens to you, a person that should be admired. If you buy a definition planter for your grandmother, you will see that the definition of the grandmother said that she is a kind, sweet and caring woman, a person with a big heart and a warm smile, a person which is greatly cherished and loved. The price of a definition planter is of $24.99. More gifts are available on personalcreations.com.
What better unique gift will you offer to a friend of yours, that turns 18, if not a homemade or handmade present?
One of the gifts that I want to present in this article (I will present only 2 of them) is of the decoupaged plate. You can create this possible gift as long as you are more than 8 years old and if you have a least 30 min. at the disposal. It is considered that in this time, you should not include the drying time of the plate.
Of course, this is a homemade gift, but this does not mean that you have to build the plate by your own. You can simply buy it from a store. Okay, so this is the first material that you need: a clear plate or a blank plate, the shape of the plate is not important. Then you need a wallpaper scrap, a tissue paper, a foam brush, scissors, glass paint and a decoupage medium. The first thing that he will do will be to cut the pieces of the wallpaper sample that you have in order to fit the plate, make sure to cut them in a larger size at first, because most likely you will eliminate what is in addition and you will cut twice or even 3 times the material. Apply a coat of decoupage medium on the back of the plate and stick those pieces of wallpaper. Make sure to use of the foam brush and the scissors. Here is how the final product looks like.
The second product that I will present is a dried flower sachet craft. You can see the image of the dried flower craft below this paragraph. All you need is a ribbon, dried flowers obviously, a hole puncher, scissors and a tulle. The instructions starts with you drying the flowers, there is a special technique that allows you to dry the flowers, so that they will not die because of this. Then cut the circle of the tulle you have. In the hole that is created, make sure to place those dried flowers and a ribbon, that will go from in to out, through the holes that were created in this way. If you have more room to place the dried flowers that remained unused, now is the time.
If the flowers do not have a nice smell, and most likely they do not have a smell at all, spritz them with some perfume. If you manage to create a sachet by your self, make sure that you post the photo of the sachet on your Facebook profile, so that other people to know your good at homemade creations.
When you start thinking at a present, you should think first what is the relationship you have with the person for which you get the gift. Is it your brother, your sister, mother, father, is it your dog, or your cat, is it your boss, for what occasion you get the gift, for his or her wedding, for his anniversary, because he throws a party, without no special reason, what is the purpose of you offering him or her the gift?
Ok, after you have answered to all these questions, you should enter specialized sites that allow you to buy online the gifts that you want. If you are still undecided, then some representatives could help you decice. It would be better to know from the start what is the budget with which you have to deal, so that you won’t spend any extra dollars.
For the 30th anniversary of your friend, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend and so on, you can see the offers that are presented on this site. This is one of the largest sites in this field, and you can buy from it, even though you don’t live in the United States. The fees will be different, of course, but this is a good opportunity to buy personalized gifts, when you get for the entire family. A very nice gift would be the “Your Special Day” Life Magazine. This magazine will have on the cover the picture with your friend. This is a very intersting gift and I am convinced that a girl (especially a girl) would love to have her picture on a magazine, like Life, even if the magazine is offered only to her and not bought by 1 million people. She will consider this as a kind way of showing your appreciation.
Another gift could be a bottle of wine, personalized according to the character and personality of the person who will receive the gift. This is a gift, which is offered mostly to men, but the women also love the good wines, so why not offer this gift to a lady as well? Still, you have to be very careful, because if you are a single man and she is a single lady, this could lead to other interpretations. More gifts on the site I linked earlier and don’t forget, you are the most important gift that person could have!

At one point or another in our lives we all were in the same conundrum “what is the best birthday gift for a friend?” It really can happen to anyone, maybe because you are just stuck for new ideas, or you don’t know what they would really wish for and so on. The best thing to do when buying a present for a friend is to leave all the worries behind and approach it as relaxed as possible. Try to think of the them and their hobbies, maybe they mentioned something they like some time ago or you can remember something that really caught their eye when you where walking through the city together.
A great way of preparing for a birthday gift is getting it in advance. Say for instance you’re browsing the internet and you stumble upon a cute watch you know your friend will really love. Even if their birthday is in three months get it right there on the spot. This way you will have a present they will certainly enjoy and you can relax for the following months and even better you are avoiding a last minute gift purchase. Now obviously the best birthday gifts for a friend are the gifts that pertain to their interests.
When getting such gift be sure to make the necessary research and be really specific. For a computer nerd you could get a component they’ve been wanting for a long time, it may not seem a spectacular gift but actually it really is, it will show that you pay attention and that you’re willing not only to spend money but also a lot of time researching to get them a gift they really want.
For someone who likes the outside and adventures there are any number of gifts you can get. For instance for someone who loves to ride their bike you could get a pair of leather bike gloves that will protect their hands from blisters. For someone who enjoys taking long walks and hiking you could get a monocular or a binocular so that they can enjoy their surroundings even more. For a movie lover get a movie you know they would like or a poster of their favorite movie.
Make your friend laugh with a silly gift that will cheer him up. Depending on your friend you could get different types of funny gifts. For your girlie girl friend get a lip balm in the shape of doughnut or soaps in the shape of cupcakes. For your friend who enjoys reading you could get a funny lamp that will cheer him up every time turns on the light.
The secret to getting the best birthday gift for your friend is to pay attention to them, it’s as simple as that. A thoughtful gift that will show them how much you care will make them feel special and appreciate your friendship even more.11
When celebrating our birthday we want to surround ourselves with the ones closest to us. It is not only a perfect occasion to show someone what they mean to you but also to spend a good time with all those dear to you.
When you want to buy a birthday gift for a dear friend there is one important thing to remember: make it personal. A gift card and a wash cloth just won’t be enough and you will have to dig a little deeper to get a great gift that will impress them but also show them how much they mean to you.
Use your common past and shared memories to make a unique and thoughtful gift. Did you take a road trip together in college? Make a scrapbook that documents that trip with pictures, receipts and anything else you can find that relates to that vacation. Make a photo collage with photos from all the parties you went together or if you have a picture of the two of you with a special meaning frame it and engrave he frame.
Show them how unique they are to you with a customized and beautiful piece of jewelry. For girls necklaces with photo lockets are extremely popular while for boys custom cuff-links are all the rage right now. Maybe there is a special family heirloom that got lost through the ages like a grandmother’s ring or grandfather’s watch; if you have the necessary funds you could order an exact replica at a jeweler or find a similar watch at an antique shop.
A great birthday gift for a dear friend is something that shows that you pay attention to their interests and hobbies. For such a gift you really have to keep your eyes out and get something you are sure they will love and use. For someone who loves to craft you could get a well stocked crafting kit. For a musician you could get a rare record they always wanted while for a movie buff you could get an original poster of their favorite movie. For a friend who loves to cook you could get a pair of high-rated cook books or a designer apron.
Presents are not just material symbols of our affection they can also be a trigger for a deep rooted feeling like nostalgia, pure joy or a regression to the innocence of childhood. Make an unexpected surprise for your friend with a gift basket full of retro candy, the kind of penny candy you used to enjoy as children together. You could also get them the same toy as they got from the first birthday they remember like a tin carousel or maybe a wind-up robot.
An event will also make a fantastic birthday gift for a dear friend. Organize a surprise party with all their friends or a lavish movie night at your local cinema. Plan a road trip similar to the one you had when you where younger or plan your first one. An exciting scavenger hunt through the city is great for and adventurous friend.11
