Homemade gifts can be designed and created by yourself or they can be bought from various boutiques, that sell them online or in stores. We recommend the first version of homemade gifts, because they will show your recipient you care about him/her more by doing this.
1. A great product for those that can take a good joke is the ‘Save Water Drink Wine’ tea towel. This product can be bought online for the price of 10 GBP, but if you have the right tools and imagination, you can create a similar one and why not, use a different message. You can make a tea towel and write ‘I love you’ or ‘Welcome’. You can save more than 5 GBP simply by making the product by yourself. The designer of this tea towel, which can be bought on notonthehighstreet.com, used only cotton to make this towel. It has 46 x 74 cm and presents also a hanging loop.
2. If you want to offer your recipient the chance of cutting different fruits and vegetables on different chopping boards, you can engrave them with the name of those fruits or vegetables for which the boards are suitable. As you can see in the above image, there is one chopping board destined to onions, other one for lemons, others for herbs, chilli and so on. The designer of this product knows very well that you should not mix the flavors of different ingredients, such as chilli and oranges, for example, this is why it recommends us an oak chopping board, different for every ingredient. Oak is recommended in this case, because it preserves better the flavor of those ingredients. Instead of engraving ‘onion’, ‘lemon’, ‘herbs’, you can engrave words like ‘I love you’ or ‘For my darling’.
3. Another product made from oak is this solid ‘Hot Stuff’ trivet (28 GBP). You can save a lot of money, simply by designing this product by yourself. You will need a piece of oak, which already has a round shape and something to carve those letters: ‘H’, ‘O’, ‘T’ and so on. After carving those letters, the trivet has to be oiled with natural oils. When you want to offer a product like this to someone, you can also wrap it in a lovely tissue paper, to add more elegance to this wooden item. This is a perfect gift for all occasions, especially for a birthday. The dimensions of the product you see above are 20 x 20 x 2.5 cm. When you create this product on your own, you can give it whatever dimensions you want.
If homemade products is what you search on the Internet, let me recommend you a site that will put a big smile on your face: notonthehighstreet.com. As the name says, here you will find products that are not found in shopping centers, but more in boutiques.
You have to take into account that these handmade products are not similar one to another and they may have imperfections, which give uniqueness to the products. You should not treat an object that has a slightly different shape from the one presented on the site as a different object; they are both the same, are made from the same materials and by the same person, only that their shape differs a little bit. Once again, the handmade feature is what makes a product unique.
When you buy a product for someone, you must have that person or something in your mind. From the producers that present their merchandise on this site, you can buy products for everyone, including your pets.
Let's imagine that you want to buy some unique birthday gifts for your mother or grandmother. You can consider some bracelets, earrings, charms and jewelry, necklaces and pendants, pins and brooches, watches, rings, bags, purses, corsages, belts, handbag essentials, hats, luggage, scarves and gloves, and many others. If you want to buy a birthday gift for your dad, for example, you can also buy handmade belts, luggage, hats, scarves, everyday essentials, ties, wallet and money clips, bracelets, rings, watches, collar studs and stiffeners and many others.
Those interested in the prices of these products sold on notonthehighstreet.com can find out that they are not cheap, because they are handmade. In general, a handmade product is expensive and these products are no exception. For example, a personalized vintage linen notebook is 19 GBP, personalized silver letter tile cufflinks, 75 GBP, a kew footed bowl, 40.99 GBP and a personalized initial coin purse, 12 GBP.
Of all the products mentioned in the previous paragraph, we recommend the kew footed bowl, which works for any recipient, regardless your relationship to him/her. This is a beautiful terracotta footed bowl painted in lavender or light mocha, depending on the flowers planted in this bowl. They can be narcissus, hyacinths or cyclamen. This bowl comes in 2 versions: small (13 x 22.5 cm) and large (18.5 x 30 cm). It can be placed outside or in your recipient’s house.
Before buying a product from here, besides the product details, you also have to read the customer reviews and the delivery and return policies.
Do you search for a truly unique gift to offer to your partner, parent or friend? Try some experience gifts! We definitely recommend you to try the map presented on gifts.com, where you can find the most popular experiential gifts that can be offered in the United States.
Let's select for example the experiential gifts in Los Angeles, California. They are not necessarily created for young or senior people, but only for people that want to enjoy themselves along with their friends and family. So, if you want to buy an experience like this for a 40-year-old person, you can relax because almost all of these experiences will match your recipient. Obviously, if your friend has a problem with line cruisers, you will not buy him an experience related to something like this, but other type of adventures, such as a weekend at a famous hotel, a dinner at a restaurant where only Hollywood stars eat or a day at a spa with his/her partner.
We have mentioned something about line cruisers. Well, this is our first gift idea: the gourmet Los Angeles dinner cruise ($135). This experience is delivered by Cloud 9 Living and allows your recipient to enjoy the finest in gourmet cuisine, surrounded by spectacular views over LA. On this trip, you can dance, relax, eat incredible dishes and enjoy a romantic dinner prepared only for yourself by respected chefs.
A very interesting experience that I recommend to everyone who enjoys seeing how it is to fly is this Indoor Skydiving, delivered by the same company as the previous experience. For this, you will not require a parachute, nor a plane. Without parachutes and planes, you cannot have problems and you can maintain your mental status high. Most people would like to try something like this, but they are too frightened about what could happen (the parachute will not open, they will not open the parachute when it is supposed to get opened and so on). Well, with this indoor skydiving experience, that takes place in Hollywood, you can be sure that you will not risk losing your life. A gift like this is $80.
For those that want to experience the real deal, Cloud 9 Living offers the Del Mar Sunset Ballon Ride ($270). You can experience spectacular views over the Pacific Ocean, great for couples. On this trip, you can enjoy champagne or sparkling cider, depending on your preferences. This type of experience can be programmed, so that you can see the glowing, peaceful sunset going down over the east of the country and also the mountains in the morning.
An engraved gift means a personalized gift, if we refer to those engravings made to write a special message to the recipient of that gift. There can be products which have the company logo engraved on it, products that are not customized at all according to the desires of the buyer, but we will not deal with them today. All the products mentioned here are personalized, not that expensive and engraved.
1. A very nice product, especially for those that like to read, is an engraved bookmark, that can be considered also has a gift for your favorite book. This bookmark will be cherished forever by children and students and they could even pass it on further to their children and so on. In other words, it can be transformed into an unforgettable keepsake. This product has 5.5 x 75 inches, is available from GiftTree and costs $19.95. It can be used with novels or magazines and features a free monogrammed engraving on the dangling medallion, as seen in the above image.
2. This engraved communion bracelet is dedicated to small girls and can be bought from GiftsForYouNow.com for the price of $44.95. Just like the previous product, the engraving is done on the dangling medallion, placed on the same ring with a little cross.
3. But not only children should receive jewelry, also their mothers and grandmothers should. So the next recommendation is this engraved grandma bracelet ($24.95) from the same GiftsForYouNow.com. The personalization consists in more than just adding a medallion with the initial of your grandmother, but in also of writing 3 words that you believe will be appreciated by her. The above image gives us a good example: “Love”, “Grandmother” and “Forever”.
4. This is an engraved wedding wall cross, that you can place in the hallway of your house or even directly on the door, to show that you're getting married. This is a wedding spiritual keepsake that is $24.95 (available from GiftsForYouNow.com).
5. A good idea for those that have cash is the event engraved money clip ($19.95), perfect for carrying multiple cards and cash without a heavy wallet. However, you need to take good care of this money clip, because it can attract much more attention than a wallet. It is subtle and sleek, silver platted with black trim and features initial customization for a sophisticated touch. Its seller is Great Gifts for Men.
6. The engraved baby cup is a precious keepsake for very small children. GiftTree sells it for $44.95 and they also offer free engraving with the baby's name and birth date. The cup is made from sterling silver and has a side handle.
Are you searching for unique birthday gifts online? You are doing it the right way, because this is the best solution when you want to find unique presents. When you go to a supermarket or shopping center, most likely you find some things that can be bought by other people as well, because they are not unique. If you search for uniqueness, you’d better start designing a gift by yourself. God knows that there are so many ideas on the Internet that you can use.
1. For those that search for an interesting gift, that cannot be manufactured by themselves, I recommend this binary key ring (38 GBP), a product that is most certainly unique, because it is handmade and personalized according to the desires and needs of every customer. In fact, Kutuu, its manufacturer, is recognized for this in the United Kingdom. You may not believe it, but what you see above engraved on that sterling silver token is a word, represented in binary code. Do you know what that word is? It's “Love”; luckily for those that buy it, this token comes with a card that allows you to decipher the message. The token measures 2.5 x 1.9 cm and the ring has a diameter of 2.5 cm.
2. This product is dedicated to men. It is created by Tamielle and is the hankies set for men with cricket design. It is 24.50 GBP. This is made of soft cotton, because it is destined to a soft area of the men's body, their face and hands. The dimensions of a handkerchief like this are of 40 x 40 cm. Tamielle’s products are more than just some simple gifts; behind this beautifully mastered product, there is the work of many creative people. Her workshop is located in Bulgaria and every product you see online created by this woman is made with her own hands.
3. Because we were not asked to write about gifts for men, women, children or for a certain occasion, we will also present some other products included in different categories than the ones already mentioned. So here is a Christening gift, that is definitely unique, simply because it is personalized. I'm talking about the pewter Christening godparent heart/key ring, manufactured by Multiply Design (10.75 GBP). This eco-friendly product is available in 4 designs: godson, goddaughter, godfather in godmother and it has a size of 4.5 x 4 cm.
4. This is a product created for anniversaries or birthdays. It is made by the same manufacturer as the previous product and is 10.75 GBP. It is a birthday/anniversary heart token, a beautiful keepsake, that comes in an organza pouch.
Today I want to discuss with you about 2 potential gifts that you can buy for the 21st birthday party of a friend. It doesn't matter if we are talking about a girl or a boy, because these 2 fantastic products that will be presented here can turn into the beautiful gifts for any gender.
The first product is one that I have named earlier, in one of my previous articles. It is about the Laser Cosmos, a romantic gift, that is a little bit expensive: 109.99 GBP. But for this money, this product will blow you away. The product itself is shaped like a funky 3D star, can be moved to any angle and provides the same accurate images, fils any room, no matter its dimension, with a carpet of stars and clouds and is self focusing. It possesses a cloud brightness control feature and a cloud formation projector lens. For best results, the manufacturer recommends to use this product in total darkness. It comes equipped with a Laser Stars projector lens. It has 29 x 25 x 20 cm, requires a mains adapter and should be used for up to 4 hours at a time. You don't want to overheat your new gift.
When you want to clean it in order to remove the dust and microbes that can gather inside it or directly on its lens, it is recommended to go to some specialized people. It is not recommended to touch the lens or try to adjust it. However, a professional will know how to do this without damaging your product. It would be preferable to see where the manufacturer has stores and go to one of those stores, to receive cleaning services. If you are not allowed to touch the lens, someone must do this, in order to clean the product.
This is a product that I enjoy very much. It is an LED cube, that has a price of 89.99 GBP and has some amazing features. It generates a dazzling array of colorful lights, creating a spectacular effect. More than 1000 different colors are created when the light inside this cube combine. The developer warns us to not let ourselves waste entire mornings just gazing at this wonder. The cube contains 64 individual LED lights and represents a great desktop ornament. Those suffering from epilepsy should not use this product.
It is impressive to use a product like this in the home, but also at the office, as long as you are alone in it. The changing lights may disturb the colleagues working at near offices. The cube has 16.6 x 12.5 x 12.5 cm.
How about some cheap and romantic gifts for your husband? The products do not necessarily have to be expensive to show your love towards him. You can even create the product by yourself without any cost whatsoever, except the time spent to create it; this doesn't mean that the product doesn't have a great sentimental value and why not a material one as well.
A romantic husband and wife personalized coffee mugs set is available at PersonalizationMall.com for $24.95. If you want to see other romantic gifts, here is a husband and wife kissing in chair anniversary gift, that is personalized for free at Bears in Chairs, Gifts You Design! This product is really interesting and it is only $34.99. If you want this product, you have to register on bearsinchairs.com and only after that order it. The personalization is done in this way: you have to provide the name of the boy, of the girl, the saying (for example “Happy Anniversary”), you have to select if you want hearts to appear on the couch or not and also what other accessories you want to be included. These ones can be: angel wings, champagne bottles, champagne glasses, bouquet of roses, top hat, ice bottle, King’s crown, born to shop bag, birthday cake, Valentine’s gift box, cowboy, dog sitting, baseball cap, magazine, newspaper and more.
Clothing pieces are a nice gift for a man that likes to dress, but they are not recommended as romantic gifts in my opinion. It would be preferable in this situation to buy for him a book that has a suggestive title or products that allow you to have a unique experience together, such as serving the tea on a river, a cruise for two, a trip to a place where you have never been before, bath and body products, a relaxing experience in a spa and more products than just like these.
And if you really want to be unique, you can try to re-create your first date. This should be the perfect gift for a couple that celebrates 5 – 6 years together.
You can celebrate the joy of having such wonderful husband like yours by inviting your friends over and throwing a party. Don't forget to order or make a cake, to buy some wine and champagne bottles and a lot of party accessories. A party is also a great gift for a husband and he will most likely appreciate it.
Are you ready for some crazy gifts? Stupid.com has them all. Just enter the site and see the crazy and insane gifts that you can buy for your loved ones. The first thing that you see are the best-selling products, then you have the possibility of checking out the newest items, to discover the Halloween gags, some pranks and jokes and to check your cart, if you are already registered on this site. If you are not, you have to register in order to purchase the products that you want.
Because Halloween is coming, many products presented here are related to this holiday. This is why in this article I will present some Halloween costumes designed for those that will soon be 30. They are divided into costumes for women, men, children and costumes that are under $30. I will begin with the women’s costumes: Where's Waldo costume ($28.99), plush pig costume kit ($15.99), cupcake costume (a very interesting gift, that costs $45.99), monkey costume set with sound (in my opinion, this product should be offered to a man, not to a woman; it costs $10.99), fart catcher costume ($39.99), hot dog costume ($26.99), green M&M tank shirt dress ($27.99) and bones tank dress costume ($25.99).
The men's costumes start with the same Where's Waldo costume, that obviously has the same price, but they continue with a biker costume kit ($10.99), with a baby costume kit for adults ($7.99), gecko costume ($18.99), priest shirt front costume kit ($12.99), pig costume with sound ($11.99), donkey costume with sound ($10.99), Charlie Brown costume ($28.98) and more.
But not only the people that are 30 should receive crazy gifts, but also their children. The children’s gifts are fewer though, because you know that a child doesn't sit to dress him in everything you want.
They are very dynamic, this is why probably the gifts created for children, that can be bought from this site, are just a few. Among them: a baby Afro wig, $12.99 and a baby Einstein wig, $11.99.
A very interesting site that allows you to buy unique gifts for your dear ones if funslurp.com, that has the motto: “Slurp up the fun”. Here you can find all sorts of gag gift for persons that are 40 or that will soon be 40. For example, you can buy some gag gifts, pranks, unique gifts, unique kitchen gifts, unique gifts for her, for him, bachelorette party gifts, barbecue gear, fun gifts for kids, keychains, office gag gifts, over the hill gifts, weird bacon product, holiday gag gifts, you can see what are the daily specials, you can receive very low shipping rates and more.
If you are interested in some office gag gifts, because a person that is 40, most likely he or she works in an office or something (we tend to lose our workers, because all of us work in an office). Even I have transformed my room into my office, because I am pretty lucky and I work from here. This is why I will present several products that are created for office “workers”, if I can name them in this way. I hope that those that were indeed in an office are not mad at me for calling them “workers”.
Because we were requested to write about gag gifts, I have taken this request very serious and now I will present several products included in this category. I will start with a product that is a prank pen; I don't really understand what a pen like this is, this is why I will read the description of this product which is $7.47. The product has something written on it and if your colleagues wants to steal your pen or if he or she simply forgets to bring it back, you will know that it was your plan, because it has something written on it.
The trick is that if you look from a distance, you will not see the text that is written on it, because you will see only a logo that looks like a logo of every other pen, only that it is not. So when your colleague will be asked to look at the logo one more time, he/she will have the surprise to see the hilarious labels.
Another product that you can buy from this site is represented by a cool been ice cube, which seems like something made of chocolate. It is interesting to see how you can use these ice cubes. You can place them not in whiskey, as you might expect, but in milk or other products. After all, they seem made of chocolate right?
Do you want us to write an article about the potential gifts that you can offer to a florist? Well, it is about the presents that I have named until now, taking into consideration the gender of that florist and also the age. I believe that we are not talking about a kid here, but about an adult and probably a woman. You have to take into account is that woman is young or if she is old and the potential gifts that you can offer to a woman refer mostly to candies and flowers, but I believe that if the woman is sitting or standing all day long next to flowers and to bouquets, she is probably tired of all these flowers and you can offer to her something else. It is like offering to a fashion designer a piece of clothing.
Even if that designer is not that famous or even if he or she is, most likely that person will not be satisfied with a gift that will remind him or her of his/her work. In this situation, it would be preferable to offer to her or even to a man a bouquet of flowers. But in this article we are talking about a florist.
If you have the money, you can buy for him/her an iPhone or an iPad; but I believe that you don't have the money to get this, this is the reason I will recommend to you some other products, which unfortunately are included in the Flowers category. I cannot help but presenting the flowers that you can buy for a lady, because I believe that even if she works in the flowers domain, she must appreciate them.
If we are talking about a man that celebrates his birthday or perhaps his anniversary with his wife, you can buy for him a bottle of wine or offer to him a really interesting experience of serving the tea or driving a classic car. I have found a nice site on the Internet that is named 1800flowers.com, that allows it to buy all sorts of products, even flower cakes. I know that this is something that you probably did not see until now, this is why I have thought to present the image of that cake in our article also.
The flowers or better said the products are included into several categories: fall products, birthday products, items for all types of occasions, flowers (as you can see, there is a special category for Flowers), plants, sale (I don't really get this category), same day delivery, sympathy and gift baskets and food.
