A 40-year-old woman can be easily satisfied on her birthday with a bouquet of roses, a candy box with her favorite candies and lots of love. However, we would like you to buy her something unique, something that is not offered on a daily basis; let's face it, you can buy her a bouquet of roses and also a candy box on any other day. So let's just keep the birthday of an important person in your life as something special.
1. A woman in her ‘40s usually likes to cook, whether we are talking about breakfast, lunch, dinner, cookies, cocktails and so on. How about for at least a single day per year to offer her these beautiful cupcakes, as you see in the above image? They are baked based on the ideas of two sisters that own the Georgetown Cupcake bake shop in Washington DC. They can be bought from the Discovery Channel Store for the price of $39.95.
2. The second product we recommend is also connected to food; this time it is an exotic dinner kit ($40), sold by Destination Dinners. The purpose of this gift is that with this it is possible to travel the world through authentic flavors without ever leaving your home. The food will be prepared by yourself, but with spices and ingredients placed in this kit.
3. A woman can reach 100, if she knows how to eat, what to eat, how to perform physical exercises and when to perform them and many other things like this. We will not recommend you a DVD with exercises that you can perform at home, but a healthy gift basket sold by Gourmet Gift Baskets. It is $59.99 and includes award-winning gourmet snacks and foods, just great for a 40-year-old woman, because they are low in fat and calories. The gift basket contains, among others: organic coconut bars, healthy trail mixes, organic crackers, honey wheat dipping pretzels, raspberry honey mustard pretzels and dried cranberries.
4. This is the most beautiful gift idea that I have ever presented. I say this because it is not the first time when I recommend this blooming flowers birthday cake. It is great for a special day, is sold by Teleflora and costs $59.95. The trick with this cake is that it has hot pink miniature carnations, a pink rose and hydrangea, lavender cushions spray chrysanthemums and white button spray chrysanthemums. Don't imagine that this is a cake made only of flowers. Under them, there is a tasty cake, that even has its very own hot pink candles. This is the dream of a girl/woman come true.
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.
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.
The 21st birthday should be celebrated with friends, family and in some cases even with neighbors, which cannot stay away from the party. Whether you are a friend of the person celebrating 21 years of existence or simply a neighbor, you have to go to the party with a gift. Today, we will discuss about some of the most popular products on gifts.com, which can be offered to a 21-year-old woman.
1. These witty and unusual wine glasses enlighten the atmosphere at a party. Too bad that for only a glass like this you will pay $14.99. If you want everyone at the party to use a witty glass, you could spend more than several hundreds of dollars, which is not a good idea. So if you want to keep it cheap, buy a single wine glass like this and make sure to mention this to your recipient, in order to place your gift on a shelf in a room, where guests cannot reach. I recommend you this, because the wine glass is made from crystal and is very fragile. This is available from The Wine Enthusiast.
2. A woman, regardless of her age, is passionate about cosmetics, so a great gift for a 21-year-old woman would be this Murad Vitamin C Infusion Home Facial Kit ($59) from Amazon. This is an antioxidant-rich weekly treatment for environmental aging, that makes sure your skin is hydrated. It also restores youthful clarity, eliminating the possible wrinkles a 21-year-old woman might have.
3. If a woman in her 20s would eat something like you see above, we would have more healthy people. Unfortunately, in general young adults and teenagers prefer to go to fast foods and eat all sorts of “dishes”, which under no circumstances should be consumed. To create a habit of eating healthy, we recommend you to offer this stoneware tray ($20). This one can hold basically anything the recipient wants, but it is dedicated to morning dishes or breakfast. Instead of carrots or beans, you can have a croissant or a little bit of cheese. This tray can be used in bed also. You can find it at UncommonGoods.
4. Even if the name of this product is sterling silver diamond Ascher ring, this is not an actual diamond ring; you can understand this immediately after learning about its price: $110. This simply looks like a diamond jewelry, because the manufacturer has managed to use sterling silver in such manner, that it sparkles like a true diamond. This ring is handmade in New York and can be bought from UncommonGoods.
In general, women need more motivational products than men, probably because they are differently built; they are more fragile, sensitive, they cry a lot easier and can become really upset when someone asks them about their age. So I believe a very good gift for the birthday of a 50-year-old woman would be represented by a motivational gift.
These ones can be included in many categories, such as arts and crafts, personalized items, wall hangings, office accessories (a woman in her 50s can still go to work), jewelry, famous quotes, sports and recreation, books and magazines and religious items.
1. A good product that we also recommend to men is the Verbal Secrets Of Life & Motivational Quotes Dispenser ($9.95). If you have heard of the Staples Easy Button, you know how this motivational button works. This offers you a new jolt of wisdom and inspiration every day, allowing you to hear secrets of life, mantras, motivational quotes and tid-bits of wisdom.
2. Do you want to see what the power of attitude can do? Order a pen holder from Successories ($19.99) and you will see the message displayed on both sides of this heavyweight stainless steel object. It has a simple oval design that features a great combination between polished and matte finishes.
3. Since they were released on market, personalized mugs have created a sort of a cult; now, all those that have personalized objects, especially mugs, can enter a club of those passionate about collecting mugs (or any other products). But the collection of a person like this is definitely not completed if he doesn't buy or received as gift this Believe & Succeed Sunset Ceramic Mug ($6.99). This is sold by Successories, has 15 oz and is microwavable and dishwasher safe.
4. You should offer this product to a person that wants to quit his job or his dream. You need to offer the determination of moving forward, of continuing. And one of the products that does this very well is the Don't Quit Plaque ($22.95). This product is sold by The Catholic Company. It is reported that teenagers especially love this unique marble look plaque, because it contains a special message that enters their minds and remains there for always.
5. You can very well combine the previous product with the one presented at number 5 and you can be sure that the recipient will start to have a better life. This product is the “Make It Happen” paperweight ($19.99) available at Successories. It features an inspiring quote by Oliver Wendell Holmes. The design of this paperweight represents a sculpted sailboat chiseled into cast marble.
Need some 40th birthday gift ideas? Visit overthehillgifts.com and search for the 40th Birthday category. If you want to bring to the birthday party some products that will be used by the person celebrating 40 years of existence and also by his guests, there are a few options: cookies, drinks, candies, bonbons, party accessories and other products that can be used at a party.
1. In the Food category, we can include this birthday gift basket ($99.95). If your recipient celebrates 40 years in 2012, he is born in 1972; this is why our birthday gift basket recommendation refers to a 1972 music CD, a frame (3.5 x 5″) saying “1972 – A Very Good Year”, a 1972 magnet, a pack of sweets from that decade plus points that circulated in 1972. At the same time, the seller includes a 30 minute DVD from the year when your recipient was born. It contains film clips, news and songs from 1972, a deck of trivia playing cards and also a hardcover mini book, great for all those that want to see what were the most important things that were available on market those days and also their prices. This gift comes in a bamboo basket, that can be used by the recipient on another time as well. You can make a wonderful 40th birthday gift by purchasing this gift basket, that comes also with a card envelope, which can be personalized with a 50 character message.
2. You can also buy a 1972 birthday mug (11 oz), dedicated to all those that celebrate their 40th birthday in 2012. This is dishwasher and microwave safe. Unlike the previous gift which can be consumed by other people present at the birthday party as well, this is a product that will be used by the recipient alone. This mug is $12.95. If you have the money, you can buy this mug to show your appreciation towards the recipient and also the gift basket mentioned earlier, to make sure that other friends will feel alright at the party.
3. For a birthday party between friends, you can use a product like the one presented earlier. This is a birthday tiara, which is normally used by little girls, that believe they are princesses. At 40, you realize that you're not a princess, but no one stops you from using products that are normally used by Royalty, like this birthday crown. This is $5.95, sparkles and makes every woman that wears it to look like a queen for at least one day.
A 55-year-old woman will be happy on her birthday if she will receive one of the products presented below.
1. This gift is appropriate to be offered by her husband, because it invites you to romance and coziness. It is the personalized birthday gift candle included in the “Birthday For Her” range of products that can be bought from Lumnique. This is $30 and wears the “Almond Blossom” fragrance. The color of this product (bliss) is the representative of love and togetherness.
2. This product can be offered by the woman's friends, her husband, children and even parents. It is another personalized item, that spells her name in an architectural design. This is the personalized alphabet framed print (7-10 letters), a Personal Creations exclusive. The details and contrast in this unique print are truly compelling. As you can see, each letter in the name of your 55-year-old recipient is represented by a different black-and-white photograph. This item is $59.99, but if you use the 30GIFTSCOM code when ordering it, you will receive a discount of 20%.
3. What do women love besides shopping? Jewelry of course. You simply cannot go wrong with a jewelry, this is why we recommend this sentimental necklace, that features a symbolic charm. It can be found at Nordstrom for $78.90.
4. Who says that if you are a woman, you're not allowed to drink alcohol? Or if you do, you will seem like an alcoholic? I believe that at least one time per year, on her birthday, a woman can drink a glass of wine. So we recommend this Wine Bottle Box, a refined gift to offer to a special person. However, you need to take into account that a 55-year-old woman can have circulatory problems and also a heart condition. Alcohol is no good for these problems. So I strongly advise you to offer a bottle of wine only to a close friend or family, that you know for sure is healthy. This item can be bought from the Personal Creations for $19.99.
5. In general, a 55-year-old woman is retired, but if she is still active and very much dynamic, she can use this generously sized canvas tote pattern with retro backwoods graphics. This is a canvas shopper bag that can be bought from Nordstrom. It is $86.90, has an electrifying finish and is trimmed in red-edged leather.
6. The last product is extremely suitable for a senior person. It is represented by the wrist weight bands ($24.95), that are comfortable stylish and turn all your activities into exercises. These bands can be also worn as bracelets.
What is more important for a woman than being a mother? In this article, we will present several maternity wear products dedicated to all the women that want to be chic.
1. This is a really lovely piece of clothing, named the woolen maternity gillet, created by Bumpalicious Maternity (58 GBP). This cozy maternity wear delivers elegance and style at their best. It is a rather unusual gillet, but hey it is designed to keep you and your bump warm in style. This product is made from a soft woolen mix fabric that contains alpaca. The precise composition of the fabric is: 5% alpaca, 20% wool and 75% acrylic.
2. “I Love My Bump” maternity T-shirt (19.99 GBP) is a product we recommend to pregnant women, that already have 4-5 months of pregnancy. This product is created by Nappy Head, is eco-friendly, can be ordered by any pregnant woman in the world (you have to check the sizing information before that), is made entirely from soft cotton and is machine washable at 40°C.
3. The women that want to emphasize they will have only one child, not twins or more, can wear this next T-shirt: “Only One Bean Brewing”. It is designed by Mepod Maternity, is available in these sizes: extra small, small, medium and large and comes in a standard packing. Or, if you want to offer it to a special person, you can get the possibility of choosing the method of wrapping this gift.
4. This is an outfit that should be worn especially by the ladies that have a few more days to go. I'm talking about the pregnancy and birthing wrap by Malinky (35 GBP), that represents the original Womama Birthday Wrap, designed to be the perfect product you want during labor and birth. This product is available only in black and in these sizes: 14-18. Please note that these sizes are for the British people. If you live outside the United Kingdom, you need to verify the availability according to your country’s measurement standards.
5. You may think that a pregnant woman does not really wear pants. Well, Babes with Babies created the Perfect Palazzo Pants for the women that still want to wear pants, even though they are pregnant. Obviously, this product is suitable for a pregnant woman at the beginning of the road. A woman that already has 7-8 months of pregnancy should avoid wearing pants. This pair is 85 GBP, is fabulous for maternity and beyond, is made of a luxurious silk soft jersey and is available in jet black and midnight navy. These pants are produced in these sizes: extra small, small, medium and large.
It's been a long time since I haven't written about gifts that are presented on gifts.com and which can be bought from other sites, since gifts.com is only a directory of gifts. So today is the comeback for this site as one of our main sources of inspiration, at least for January 2012.
For a person that will soon be 50, we have thought to present several products that will transform the resolutions made on the New Year's to become reality. Editors from gifts.com say they have the “gift to get the resolutions going”. Our reader that asked us to write about potential gifts for a 50-year-old person did not mention also if we should discuss about product for ladies or for men, this is why I have taken the liberty of speaking about products created for women.
1. The first is represented by the Zumba Exercise Craze, a Wii fitness product, that allows you to shake it in style. It is dedicated to salsa and reggaeton fans, but also to the women that want to eliminate the fats that were accumulated during the holidays season. This product can be found on Amazon and is $29.
2. Of course the most important thing in life is our health. This is why we have recommended the previous product first. But another thing that is very important is to keep our brain fit, not only our body. And this can be done thanks to the product designed by Barnes & Noble, that can be found also on Amazon ($12.37). This is a journal named “Things to Make and Do”. This is one of the thousands of similar fun and lively journals existing on the market. We recommend this one because it is connected to Barnes & Noble, a trustworthy company and because it is cheap.
3. Another gift that is related to health, this time with the health of our body and of our mind at the same time, is this Victoria's Secret pink crop yoga pant ($32.60). Obviously, this gift can be bought from Victoria's Secret, it is made from cotton and spandex and allows you to reach Nirvana in style.
4. Do you want to get it working, but you have problems when trying this? Use the moving.kit organizer, a product that is sold for $29.99 on Amazon. This gadget has everything you need when something special happens in your life, like for example moving to a new house, being rewarded for your activity, having a newborn in the house and others. This product will provide you with everything a person could want, in order to keep their next move all buttoned up.
A woman is much more difficult to satisfy when it comes to birthday gifts, this is why for the birthday party of a 40-year-old woman, I want to recommend you this directory of sites from where you can buy gifts: findgift.com, because a single site is not enough for a woman. For them, you can buy jewelry, apparel, intimate products, exercise and wellness products, gift baskets, kitchenware, home decor, arts and crafts, electronics, flowers and plants, garden and yard products, books, office accessories and many more. On this site, you can also find what are the top stores from where you can buy products for women: Szul.com, Harry and David, UncommonGoods, The Body Shop, Zappos.com and Barnes & Noble.
We have selected for today the Arts & Crafts category. A 40-year-old woman must appreciate art, especially if we are talking about a photo montage, that represents her own picture or the image of her child.
1. This is why the first product we will present is the Photo Montage, that is in fact one photograph, that is composed of many others. Don't look at the image of the girl, because most likely she isn't 40; the point is that myDaVinci, the company that creates such montages, can do this with any photo that you send to them. You can preview your artwork online, before it will reach your house. The developer says that they offer 100% satisfaction. This photo montage is $59.85.
2. Another product great for a 40-year-old woman is this personalized oversized metal family tree sculpture. It wants to be a genealogy tree, but you can place in it pictures with your current family. You don't need to know who your great-grandfather was or have his picture to place it in this tree. You can place for example 3 or 4 pictures with your child, 3 or 4 with your own picture and so on. No one limits you from placing whatever pictures you want in this tree. It stands proudly on a metal base and is available from Personal Creations for $49.99.
3. This product can be offered by a woman or man to her/his best female friend. I'm talking about the Best Friend Fine Art Print ($9.95), available from myDaVinci. You can cherish the memories with your best friend, by offering her a stretched canvas or framed print like this, that measures 8 x 10″.
4. This is a Bathsheba Sculpture that represents the DNA. This is an optically perfect crystal that functions as a 3D sculpture. It is available from Edmund Scientifics for $39.95. You can use this gift as a paperweight, educational model or decorative object.
