Those gifts connected to November are also connected to November flowers, fruits, vegetables and colors. So if you're searching for November gifts for one of your friends or relatives born in November, you should buy one of these things that we will mention now.
1. The first one is represented by a generous box filled with apples and pears. 1-800-baskets sells it for $35. This box can be offered as a November birthday gift or as a holiday gift, for someone that leaves on a long trip.
2. UncommonGoods sells a beautiful November flower necklace, that is a unique and graceful way to fete a birthday. The flower is dried, then pressed and in the end showcased in a resin pendant. The necklace has a sterling silver chain and costs $48. The November flower is Chrysanthemum.
3. JC Penney comes with a much more brilliant idea, the one of offering you a November area rug, that will revitalize the room of your recipient with bold hues, that blend with soothing colors of nature. It is $80 and is great for a person that loves art.
4. Target has its own way of allowing girls to wear a November pendant. This company doesn't offer you a dried flower placed in a resin pendant, but a pendant that contains a beautiful stone, in our case, cubic zirconia. This is cheaper then buying a dried flower that plays the role of a medallion; the Target pendant is $14.99. Like any other jewelry, this one too must be cleaned with a soft cloth.
5. This is a product that works very well for a little baby: the November cute infant bodysuit by CafePress ($18.50). Not everyone has the chance to be Miss November, but your little girl can be when receiving such super comfy, 100% cotton jersey knit infant creeper. This bodysuit doesn't have to be replaced by another one, when your little girl needs to be changed; you can simply use the three snap system available at the bottom of the bodysuit and simply remove that used diaper and put a new one on your girl.
6. You have to be careful when offering a product like this to a girl: the Marquise cut Citrine ring. If you don't plan to propose to your girlfriend, it would be wise to avoid such present, because she might think of marriage when seeing a product like this one. This is sold by Heavenly Treasures for $89.
7. If you don't have big plans with your girlfriend, a gold personalized birthstone heart bracelet would be just fine. This is sold by Target for $34.99. This product is made from nickel-free metal, presents decorative accents and has a polished finish.
The 50th birthday is very important, probably because many people believe this is the middle of their life, not thinking also of the fact that they might not live 100 years. 50 is usual a number that signifies a middle of something; we use 50% in order to emphasize a half of a certain thing.
To make a good impression on the birthday party of a person celebrating 50 years of existence, first of all you have to think of your relationship with that person and second of all, of your budget.
1. If the person that throws that birthday party is your mother, a good recommendation is this Double Delight Cookie Tower ($19.95) from GiftTree. This gift is doubly fun to open and enjoy and contains cookies, that are baked to perfection using natural sea salt and other exquisite ingredients, such as Guittard chocolate.
2. If we are talking about your mother again or an aunt, this Brookstone massaging bed rest is great. Massages are recommended on a daily basis, but because we are so occupied with our other tasks, we forget some important activities, that we should perform every day.
And massages and physical exercises are among them. With this massaging bed rest, you can treat yourself to luxurious support, anytime you desire. These pillows you will receive, because these are actually pillows, are covered in an ultra-plush material, designed to eliminate stress and to relax muscles. A stimulating vibration massage is included in the little brain of these pillows, that work together in order to invigorate you. You can use this Brookstone massage chair, while you are reading, writing or watching TV. It is $99.99.
3. Although the above products seem more like medallions, they are in fact vases, perfect for holding the favorite flowers of your recipient. As you probably suspect by now, simply by looking at the shape of these heart vases, these are handmade products. These vases are great for someone special. If we discuss about the birthday party of a 50-year-old woman, it would be recommended for that woman to receive such presents from her husband, because they capture perfectly that enchantment of romance we all know. They can be found on UncommonGoods ($25).
4. It is amazing how a great smell can make us fall in love. This works both with people and foods. And for this article, we have considered a mini gift basket, which is a big hit. It is $59.95, can be bought from Mrs. Prindable’s Handmade Confections and is a gourmet gift basket, that contains 2 caramel and chocolate dipped pretzels, one milk chocolate, one triple chocolate Petite Apple, vanilla caramels and others.
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.

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.
A young woman, that celebrates her 21st birthday is most likely passionate about clothes, accessories, fragrances, pets, music CDs, jewelry, plants, home decorations, magazines, good food and beverages. When you are invited to a birthday party of a woman celebrating 21 years of existence, you have to pay attention to your relationship with her (are you sisters, friends, is she your cousin, daughter?), the budget that you have in mind for this party and also a certain category in which your gift should be included.
If you have a large budget for this birthday party, you can buy for example an experience gift, like a day at the favorite spa of that young woman or a weekend with her boyfriend to a famous destination. If, on the contrary, your budget is lower than $100, you have to search for other categories, such as clothes or accessories. Obviously, you can buy a bouquet of roses and a candy box and call it quits, but if you really want to be unique, you will offer also a beautiful clothing piece or an accessory.
Because we have mentioned this word so many times in this article, we have decided to present several accessories, great for a 21-year-old woman.
In general, ladies are not that passionate about golf. However, there are golf bags for them; but what we want to present today is not exactly a golf bag, but an accessory which can be used with a bag like this. In other words, an accessory designed for another accessory. This is the golf bag tag ($8.95), that shows everyone that a certain bag is yours. In this way, no mistakes will be made on the golf course and you will not to risk of remaining without your little items stored in the bag. This tag is custom personalized with any 4 line personalization on a side, like for example your name and address where you can be found, and with your initial on the other side.
A woman is also interested in keeping a healthy environment for herself and for her children. At 21, most women don’t have children, but this doesn't mean she cannot be preoccupied with using only recyclable and reusable products. This is why we mention now a large canvas reusable shopping bag ($20.95), that can be bought from the same PersonalizationMall. You can too be a part of a greener tomorrow by starting to use reusable products like this one. You have to start saying No to paper and plastic. This eco-friendly tote offers style and durability, while protecting the environment.
There are differences between birthdays and anniversaries, but because one of our readers has asked us to write about gifts for birthdays anniversaries, without making any distinctions between these two terms, we will present several products that work in both cases.
Obviously, you need to know what your recipient celebrates; if we are talking about a child or an adult and what is the period of time celebrated by your recipient. For example, a couple can celebrate 10 years of marriage or a lady her 50th birthday. So at least, you need to know what is the celebration about. Many products work in different cases, such as a birthday, housewarming party, they can be used by a man and also by a lady, they can work in the kitchen and also in your bedroom (for example a clock) and many other examples.
1. Still, if you don't know what is the reason for this party at which you were invited, you can simply buy a gift basket, to be sure that you will make everyone happy. If you will buy for example the romantic wine and gourmet sweetheart gift basket available at GiftTree, you can be sure that you will make the lady of the house happy (because the basket contains plenty of treats), but also the man (because it comes with a couple of bottles of wine). To be more precise, this basket has Saraivanov smoked salmon, Rosemary and roasted garlic crackers, wasabi peas, brie cheese spread and parmesan artichoke cheese biscuits.
2. But a gift basket can contain some other products which can be used not necessarily during that party. Products can be used in the morning by the person receiving them, just like it is the case of this New England breakfast gift basket, that contains Maine maple syrup, fluffy pancake mix, wild Maine blueberries and also mouth-watering, thick cut hickory. You will find this product at GourmetGiftBaskets.com for $59.99.
3. This product can be offered to a lady. If you are going to see your parents, let's say, after a long period of time, you will buy this product for your mother and the first one, for your dad. This is the Bears & Blooms gift set ($49.99). It has some of the freshest roses, button poms, mini carnations, daisy poms and other beautifully designed flowers. They arrive in a handsome basket, that measures 11.5 inches in height.
4. If fruits is what your recipient likes, then fruits it will have. The gift basket presented now, named the Towering Stack of Snacks ($49.95) is versatile for anniversaries, birthdays and other celebrations. It is filled with juicy gourmet fruits and confections.
There are many do-it-yourself products online, some of the best one being available on gifts.com.
1. Our first recommendation is a product coming from UncommonGoods: the iMitt DIY Mitten Kit, a product that allows you to listen to your favorite tunes even during the winter season. You don't have to let the cold weather of the winter to stop you from listening to your preferred music. This product includes instructions, a yarn cutter, darning needle, stitch markers, knitting needles and a pattern that you can learn in no-time and that works for men and women alike.
2. Another product from UncommonGoods is the DIY keyhole scarf kit. Yearning for yarn? With this product you can create a functional keyhole scarf, made 100% from organic merino wool coming from the United States. This one create instant warmth and is the perfect gift for a lady. The available colors are: eggplant, kiwi or navy. This product is also $40.
3. Here is a DIY from Daily Grommet ($19): the urban cheesecraft, a product that allows you to create fresh mozzarella and ricotta. The kit comes with a dairy thermometer, cheesecloth, citric acid, vegetarian rennet and cheese salt.
4. Walmart offers us a very interesting book for the people that like to design all sorts of decorations for their house. This product is included in the General Crafts & Hobbies category on Walmart and costs $15.24. I'm talking about the book named “Crafting a Meaningful Home: 27 DIY Projects”.
5. Another book is this one, that can be bought from Amazon for the price of $17.64: “Handmade Nation: The Rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design”.
6. Amazon is present one more time with another book, that seems very interesting, just like the previous one: “Craftivity: 40 Projects for the DIY Lifestyle”. This one is $13.57. If you have the money, you can buy both these books.
7. Groovy psychedelic 1960s jeans. Cheap jeans. Expensive jeans. Ripped grunge jeans. Regardless the period in the history that you like, with the “InJEANious: 52 Ways to DIY Denim” book you will be capable of creating that special look for yourself. You can transform a plain pair of jeans into a fashion statement with this book from Amazon that is only $3.99.
8. In general, the products that were presented so far are dedicated to women. I'm not saying that men do not transform their jeans, only that women are the ones that do this more often. Anyway, because of this, I have decided to mention also a manly gift, namely the DIY robotic arm kit ($69.95) from Livesciencestore.com. This teaches you the basic robotic sensing and locomotion principles.
When you are searching for gifts online, you need to go to sites that you trust. For example, the sites that are in partnership with gifts.com can be trusted, so a recommendation would be to enter this site and search for the products you think your recipient would love. If we are talking about a teenager, young adult or senior person, all of them can be motivated by words. I'm not saying that a child cannot be motivated as well, only that an adult can understand better the power of words. Children are usually more flexible when you show them candies and toys.
1. So I have selected several motivational products that can be found on gifts.com, of which the first is this one: the Goals Motivational Mug by CafePress ($15). This mug says something extremely true: “A goal without a plan is just a wish”. If you don't know who said it, learn that this inspirational quote comes from Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Now, something about the mug: this has the perfect size for your favorite morning beverage and can be placed in a dishwasher or a microwave oven. It is 3.75 inch tall and has 3 inches in diameter.
2. Not only mugs can be motivational; totes can help you follow the dream as well. One of these products is the motivational tote bag by CafePress ($21). This is a 100% cotton canvas tote bag that has plenty of room to carry everything you want when you plan to go on a trip. This product is machine washable and measures 15 x 18 x 6″.
3. You got to believe me; I did not plan to present only products coming from CafePress, but this is already the third one. Speaking of companies that you can trust, this is certainly one of them. Anyway, let's go back to the product present at number 3; this is the pink chandelier motivational wall clock, that can decorate any room in your house or office. It has a diameter of 10 inches and costs $15. It has a black plastic case and uses one AA battery (included).
4. The most important clothing piece that can wear motivational messages is the T-shirt. This is why at number 4 we present the Motivational Quote Light T-shirt ($22), that can be bought from… CafePress. It presents a familiar poster, that motivates you to go find caches. It is made 100% from cotton. So every time you want to keep your mind busy and show a comfortable look, you can wear this durable, high-quality T-shirt, that allows you to look cool without breaking the bank. More info about it on cafepress.com.
In this article, we will discuss about funny homemade gifts for the birthday party of a child, girl, boy, adult, work colleague and so on.
1. And we will begin with an item created for a baby boy: the funny mischief maker rhyme black gro (12.99 GBP). It is created by Read My Rhyme, is 100% made from cotton gro and has a funny rhyme imprinted on it, for a great looking design. The available models are from 12 to 18 m. These outfits are made only in black, are machine washable and can be ironed.
2. The next product is dedicated to a person that likes to send greeting cards. Why not ease the work of that person and buy for her/him this pack of five funny handmade cards? This idea was of Indigoelephant, who has started to create this unique gift, great for birthdays. This pack is 4.50 GBP; the size of a card is of 14.8 x 14.8 cm. The card is square (as you can see) and comes in a light blue envelope made from FSC certified paper.
3. This is another product created for babies, only that this time for the price of 28.99 GBP, you will receive 2 “outfits” like this. This set is created by Read My Rhyme as well and brings a smile to the faces of the new parents that will receive it. All designs and rhymes come directly from the minds and hands of those working for Read My Rhyme.
4. You can offer a handprinted funny “sprouts” card to any member of your family. He/she will discover that instead of the traditional “Happy Birthday!”, the card says “The sprouts just wanted to be loved.”. This is designed by Indigoelephant and is 2.95 GBP. You can offer this product to a child as well, just make sure he will get the joke. The text on the cards is printed in non-toxic blue ink. The card has 14.8 x 14.8 cm.
5. The same manufacturer has created this handmade funny penguin wrap in 6 designs, that is sold for 3.45 GBP. This is a brilliant, yet unusual gift idea, great for adults and children. Everyone loves a penguin, this is why this developer has selected this animal to be printed on their wrapping paper. The user gets to select only the pearlescent colors that represent the background of the paper: topaz blue, plum, purple, dark blue, hot pink, black or emerald green.
6. This product is created for a girl that likes to stand out. With the silver funny bones earrings by Soremi (62 GBP), you will definitely manage to create a strong impression.
If you are searching for purple birthday gifts, it means that your recipient is very fond of this color. My recommendation is to buy products that have this color, but different nuances. For example, you can buy a Purple Mannequin Large Square Silk Scarf, Purple Velvet Buckle Pumps and also a Purple Petal Greeting Card and form with all these a terrific birthday present. Let's see more about these products and others that can be offered to a person that likes the purple color.
1. We will begin with that large square scarf, mentioned in the previous paragraph. This product is a little bit expensive (99 GBP), but it is made from silk and represents the “Twenties” era, when this accessory was extremely popular. This product is designed by Judy Holme, has 85 x 85 cm, is hand finished and arrives boxed and ready to be gifted. This scarf can be only washed by hand, in mild detergent.
2. The second product is also related to the ‘20s era. These are the Buckle Pumps, designed by Mandarina Shoes (85 GBP). Obviously, you cannot wear them in rainy conditions; in fact, it is more recommended to use them in house. They are a response to the current fashion passion for purple. These shoes manage to be flamboyant and comfortable, while maintaining their classy look.
3. Do you believe that your recipient is going to appreciate a greeting card? If you do, then buy this card, that wears the preferred color of your recipient. This is a gift in its own and is designed by Lockwood Design (19 GBP). This pretty pink handmade petal cards is blank on the inside and has 16 x 16 cm. This product can be delivered to your house or it can be sent to the house of your recipient, as long as you know his/her address. However, taking into account that this is not a personalized product, the interior of the greeting card will remain unwritten. In this case, there is no point for sending the product directly to the house of the recipient, unless you want him/her to receive a product like this and in his/her turn to offer it further to other person.
4. This product can be offered to a girl/woman and also to a man, but as a home accessory, in the second case. In general, it is used by girls as a medallion. It is the purple butterfly hanging decoration, designed by Roelofs & Rubens and is 8 GBP. This little thing can be worn on a purse or backpack. The beads and ribbon measure 10 cm.
