All the Australians out there searching for birthday gifts for men can access the giftsaustralia.com.au site, that contains all sorts of products destined to wives, husbands, children, home decorations, Christmas gifts, presents for special occasions and more.
If you search for birthday gifts for your husband, learn that the available categories on this site connected to husbands are these ones: accessories for men, barbecue, general products for men and pampering gifts for men. In total, you will find 74 items. Before starting to present some of the products you can buy from here, I want to say that the prices are expressed in the Australian currency, which is the Australian dollar.
1. The first recommendation is the aromatherapy gift pack ($24.95). Don't get too surprised, men use aromatherapy products as well. In fact, many of them use cosmetics, just like women. This product present at number one contains a reusable wetpack, doesn't have mineral oils, sodium laurel sulphates, parabens, dyes or artificial fragrances. It was not tested on animals, so it would be preferable to not use it on your cat or dog too. This gift pack is man made in New Zealand and contains a man facial scrub (200 mL) and a man shaving cream (200 mL).
2. Now how about a product for bad boys? This will take out of your pocket $89.95, but it is worth it. It is the Bad Boys gift set (2 piece), that comes with a watch and eau de toilette (125 mL). These 2 items are presented in a felt lined case with a stainless steel look. This look is offered by the watch, which is made from stainless steel and uses a Japanese Quartz mechanism.
3. We have said something about a barbecue category. Well, the item present at number 3 in this list is a barbecue spatula ($22.95). This is made from stainless steel and measures 30 cm in length. If you will use this product from now on when preparing a special dish in the garden with your friends, you can be sure that cooking on the barbecue will never be boring again.
4. This product works for a woman as well, but now we recommend it to men. It is the book light with twin LEDs ($19.95). This product has 2 flexible gooseneck LED lights, whose beams can point in any direction. It requires 3 AAA batteries. It can be used as a free standing device, but you can also connect it to your computer via its USB cable in order to illuminate the area of the room you need when reading.
On notonthehighstreet.com, there can be found plenty of articles for babies and children. I particularly like this site, because here you can find handmade products, that are usually not found in shopping centers. Even though they are not cheap, they have a very high value. You will see more in the next paragraphs, thanks to the products we have decided to present. Related to children, on this site we can find bodysuits and all-in-ones, Christening wear, footwear, dresses and skirts for the little girls, knitwear, nightwear, sets and outfits, swim and beachwear, T-shirts and tops, hair accessories, children's jewelry, bags, purses and wallets for the little ones, gloves, hats, scarves and so on.
1. The first product is one that is more than personalized. Look at the above image and you will realize. It is named Your Child's Drawing Key Ring and is designed by Touch on Silver. Because it is so unique and made from silver, it is also expensive: 135 GBP. This is made to order and unfortunately, it is no longer available for Christmas delivery. Estimated delivery is around 21 days, so if you order it now, on December 21, 2011, you will receive it somewhere in the middle of January. You have the possibility of choosing the shape of the charm, besides the fact that the child’s drawing will be engraved on your charm. The available shapes are: rectangle, oval and round. Ordering this product is easy. You have to send the drawing directly to the designer using the e-mail system or by post. Tell him what alterations you need him to make and wait for your product. He will contact you before the key ring is commissioned. Also, if there is something else that you need to discuss with the designer, you should do this at this time, because further modifications cannot be made.
2. This is a collage for the little ones, designed by Crafts4Kids, a manufacturer located in Notts, Great Britain. This is an ideal gift for a very young kid with a creative streak. This product which has a French influence contains 4 pre-printed illustrations and many quality collage pieces, ready to be used by your little one. We recommend your child to be supervised when he/she plays with a kit like this.
3. The 100 Year Diary, created by Found Home Store (42 GBP) is a product that will be at the beginning used by you, the parents. This product is designed to record the event of a lifetime. It helps you to not forget the special moments in your child's life. This diary may contain the story of your life, so treasure it always.
A man in his 50s most likely knows to receive a gift, even if the gift is not that usual. In this article, we will discuss about gag gifts created for the 50th birthday of a man. Make sure that man has a high sense of humor, otherwise he will not capable of understanding many of the products that I will present here.
1. Because Christmas is approaching, I have selected a gag gift that shows Santa doing a not that orthodox move. The name of the product is “Animated Full Moon Santa” and it is $19.98 on prankplace.com. If your recipient thinks that he was good this year and he waits for the perfect gift, he will have a surprise from this little Santa, that spins around, drop his pants and gives you a full moon. Ho Ho Ho!
2. Here is a top seller. If you say this, related to a product for men, it must be related to alcohol. I mean there is no other option. Joking! Men are also attracted to electronics and video games… Anyway, let's go back to our top seller. This is the Drinking Helmet ($11.89). This beer helmet, although you can use the available locations for juice cans as well, is the ultimate party hat. You can drink from 2 beer cans at the same time, because as you can see in the picture, those are both connected to a hose, which helps you drink. Besides a party, you can use this product when watching television or playing a game. Just make sure your wife agrees with such hat.
3. This is a product that doesn't have any other purpose, then to make you laugh. Come on, where are you going to use these Underpants for Hands? They are $12.98 on prankplace.com and represent the perfect clothing piece to keep your hands warm. They fit most hands and are the cutest thing on the market that can be used on a cold winter day.
4. Don't eat it! It is not food. It only looks like bacon, but it is a soap bacon ($5.58). This is a product dedicated to those that have dreamt of bathing themselves into bacon. Now is your chance for the dream to come true. It is great, because this product doesn't only look like bacon, but also smells like it. Its manufacturers managed to capture the aroma of frying bacon in this bar of soap.
5. Even though this item is named Le Tooter, it is not a French product. It is similar to The Potter and issues a fart sound, outrageous for the people around you.
On notonthehighstreet.com, one can find hundreds of unique products and shops. If we refer to a 21-year-old girl, we have a lot of products available here; you can find women’s jewelry, accessories, beauty and pampering gifts, personalized products, collections designed for women, product under 25 GBP, under 50 GBP, under 75 GBP and many more. All products can be delivered in time for Christmas, if your recipient celebrates her birthday during this period. If you need a birthday present for 27 or 28 of December, you have to order it earlier, because no one works on Christmas.
The most loved categories for a woman that celebrates her 21st birthday are: necklaces and pendants, bracelets and bangles, earrings, shopper bags, purses and wallets, jewelry storage, rings, scarves and gloves, beauty and pampering gifts, handbag essentials, luggage and personalized items.
1. We have to begin with this magical bag, that seems created for a girl that is passionate about Apple computers. However, this is not a laptop bag, although I believe a small tablet computer, like the iPad, can be inserted in there. This is the “Apple Tree” Overnight Bag, designed by This Is Pretty. It is 59.75 GBP and benefits of free mainland UK delivery. About this product we can say that it is a fabulously funky fruit tree bag, which represents a wardrobe essential for any lady with a keen eye for fashion. It has an amazing design and is created for others to turn their heads when they see you wearing this bag.
2. In this category of Purses and Luggage, we can include also the Leather Oyster Card Holder with heart embossing, designed by Julie Slater & Son. This product is really cheap for its value, only 13.75 GBP and comes only in pale blue, even though you see other colors as well. Unfortunately these are not available anymore, due to the high number of requests. This is a beautifully crafted card holder that will keep any card safe and sound. It is perfect for a freedom pass, oyster card, rail tickets, driving license or ID card. It has 96 x 67 mm.
3. If the previous product can hold all those documents, this one is only made for your passport. Meet the handmade silk passport holder, designed by Bridget Davies and sold on notonthehighstreet.com for 23 GBP. Anyone can see that you carry your passport with you, because “passport” is written on this handmade silk item, that may have the color and design of your choice. Yes, this is a personalized product, although you can select one of those items presented above too, because they are very pretty as well.
There is nothing like the first wedding anniversary, but there are some other occasions that have to be treated with the same importance, like for example the birthday of the wife or the husband. So we have come with several products which can be offered to your partner on his/her birthday. They are not created for a certain gender, that's why you can offer them to a man and also to a woman.
1. A very good gift is the personalized first married Christmas ornament. Even though this seems more like a Christmas gift, it can be offered on other days as well. As you can see, the date that is written on this gift is November 4. This ornament is $10.99 and is created by the Calliope Designs. The personalization makes this a unique and treasured gift, every ornament being hand-lettered by talented artists. It is completely hand-crafted and is made from polymer clay.
2. “Our First Year Married” book ($25) is great for memories. It will inspire you to look back and share the memory of your first year together. This product applies more to a woman, because she has the tendency of remembering all sorts of things, but also because a woman has more talent. Make sure that after you write your memories, you share them.
3. Now it's time for a music CD. This is the MP3 version of the “First Year of Married Life” album by Marcel Dadi. It is $0.99 and contains songs performed by a guitar legend. This is definitely a product that you must not avoid when searching for presents for your loved one.
4. Another product that is related to Christmas is the “Our First Christmas Together” ornament, designed by Precious Moments. It is $29.95 and it can be personalized as you want. The product you see in the above image is related to Christmas, but not because a Christmas tree or a snowman is represented somewhere in this ornament. It regards Christmas, because that person that wanted to personalize it, has written “Our First Christmas” and “Together 2011″. So you can write anything, because the ornament simply represents two children that hug each other. You can display this product in any room. It is hand-crafted in exquisite hand-painted porcelain bisque. It has 4.33 x 1.5 x 3.54″. When you want to clean this product, simply use a clean cloth and eliminate the dust attracted by the figurine. Don't immerse this product into water.
5. “Our First…” photo holder is great for the couples that want to celebrate an event for the first time. This one is $25 and is sold by Hallmark.
Do you want to buy a gift for your dad? Is it for his birthday or simply because Christmas is approaching? Whatever the reason, I believe these products will suit him perfectly.
1. We have to begin by presenting this Best Dad Calendar. This product can be personalized and it is even recommended to personalize it. You have to write the name of your recipient (you can write only Dad), your message towards him and the start month (because now we are in December 2011, you can select the first month of the calendar to be December 2011, but also January 2012, February 2012 and so on, until November 2012). As long as you want to buy a wall calendar, you will pay 19.95 GBP. A desk calendar is a little bit cheaper: 14.95 GBP. This personalized calendar that celebrates the best dad in the world runs for a whole year and contains different personalized images for each month, that can be selected from gadgets.co.uk, the same place from where you can order this product. Note that all personalization is printed exactly as you wrote, so pay attention to spelling.
2. I have always liked the hand and feet warmers, because they allow you to get warm without wearing too many clothes on you. And this, in a very cold location. This is why my second choice for this list is represented by the reusable hand warmers (7.95 GBP). They have a heart design and are perfect for Valentine's Day. Taking into account that you will offer them to your father, it would be a nice gesture of you to offer one to your mother as well. The heart has 105 x 110 mm and stays hot for 30 minutes. These products are useful for everyone that need a little warmth during the cold winter season.
3. A man doesn't really know how to deal with eggs. In terms of cooking and kitchen, his wife is usually the boss. But why continue with this fear of cooking or with this behavior of letting only your wife do this? You have the same abilities as she does, so you can perfectly fit in the kitchen as well. This is the reason for which at number 3, we present a microwave egg cooker, that will allow you to obtain eggcelent results. The name of this gadget is the Boiley Egg Microwave Egg Boiler (8.95 GBP) and is eggsactly what you have searched for boiling eggs at work. The eggs boil in about 3 to 5 minutes, depending on their size, microwave wattage and how you like them. This item offers you perfectly boiled eggs every time.
Products presented in this list are dedicated to an adult female, in her 30s, that throws a party for her friends. When you're invited to such event, you simply cannot go without a present. So, for the birthday party of a woman that celebrates 30 years of life, we have thought of these gifts.
1. We have to start with this one and don't say that it is more dedicated to men than women. This is a product included in the For Her category on gadgets.co.uk and despite the fact that you can easily categorise it as being a product for men, wait to see what it is capable of doing. Its name is the Sophie Conran’s Drink Bucket. It is 29.95 GBP and allows you to create your own… lemonade. It seems that the daughter of restaurateur Sir Terrance Conran, Sophie, has taken her passion for home and cooking to a new level. For many years now, she's designing high quality items for home purposes from china and glass. One of the products that she has created is this Drink Bucket, that is made from galvanized steel powder, has a silicon funnel and offer you endless possibilities of creating the lemonade how you want. This product comes with 4 glass bottles with ceramic flip top lids, ensuring that you will drink your lemonade in style, just like they do it in the countryside.
2. A simple and effective personal door alarm is this Ila Wedge gadget (14.95 GBP). This emits a clever sound alarm when anyone tries to open the door. If you are in the middle of something, that you want to keep secret, like for example wrapping up a gift for Christmas, a simple sound made by this door alarm is not going to help you. It would be more preferable to simply lock the door. The trick is that this door alarm helps prevent door being fully opened as well. In this way, the people with which you live won’t make any comment regarding your decision of locking yourself in your own. And, if we refer to the early mentioned situation, you will have enough time of hiding the gift, before that person sees you. In fact, if you don't open the door yourself, he will not be capable of entering the room.
3. Another gadget manufactured by Ila is this Dusk Personal Alarm (14.95 GBP). This is the gadget you've been looking for, if you have too many male friends. It is a fashion accessory, that is placed on the screen of your phone. When someone takes it off, it starts to scream at a volume of 130 dB.
I, for example, like very much to receive mugs. And not only this; when there is a beautiful piece out there, I get it. You cannot say that I have a collection of mugs, because I don’t possess that many. Instead, I prefer to make collections of books. In order to make this article attractive, I will not speak about books, because I know people prefer more practical products, so we will discuss about some mugs as collectible gifts that can be bought for the birthday of a girl. Most of them can be personalized.
1. An interesting mug, that is definitely on my wish list for Christmas is the Color Matching Tea and Coffee Mug (8.95 GBP). In the above image, you see 2 mugs; you have to take into account that the price is only for one of them. This product is one of the top-rated products on gadgets.co.uk, the place from where you can purchase this item. It is dishwasher and microwave safe.
2. You can say Goodbye to those boring breaks that you have at school or at the office with this classic game mug (6.95 GBP). This product comes in 3 versions and if you are a collector of mugs, you definitely have to buy them all: hangman, squares and noughts & crosses. I'm pretty sure you remember these games, because they are the games of our childhood. Along with this mug, you will receive a dry wipe pen. Just like the previous mug, this is not suitable for microwave and dishwasher.
3. Now is the time for personalized office mugs. The price of a product like this is of 12.95 GBP. Note that a personalized product will take more than just a few days to reach at your door. In the case of this particular product, it is said the delivery takes about 7 working days. Your colleagues will know who you are and how you like it, simply by using a mug included in this category of personalized products. For example, you can get a mug on which your name will be written and below it, you will write “Decaf Tea, Little Milk with 2 Sugars”. So every time they will prepare a coffee or tea, they will know how you like your coffee/tea.
4. Another very interesting product is the heat sensitive global warming mug (7.95 GBP). How big is your carbon footprint? You can see this by pouring the hot drink inside this mug. It will return to its original image, when the liquid cools down.
Now we are in December 2011. How unfortunate to be born in December, when everybody celebrates the Christmas. Most likely you know the feeling of receiving holiday products on your birthday. It is nice to receive presents, even though it is not recommended to offer a single present for both celebrations at once. It is more appropriate to offer 2 gifts. If you want to offer a product related to Christmas at the birthday party of a person born in December, that’s your business. Just make sure that if you see that person again in December, meaning if you go to the Christmas dinner offered by him or if he comes to your Christmas dinner, offer another present, just to mark the Christmas holiday.
Today we will present several figurines and villages that can turn into beautiful gifts and can be offered to a person all year long. We all love this holiday, even if we are or not Christians. Probably it is because of the nice smell coming from the kitchen, the beautiful white image we see outside, the songs heard wherever you go and the feeling that everyone tries to be better those days.
If your recipient is young, I believe that several villages that are related to the winter season, are going to make a nice impression. The first choice is the Christmas Lane Series animated snow village, Santa’s Wonderland House delivered by Department 56. This product can be seen in the first image, is $118.50 and represents an enchanting village, that serves as home to jolly old Santa Claus. This product measures 8 1/2 inches deep by 11 1/2 inches wide by 14 inches tall. It is hand-painted and made from ceramic. The package includes sisal trees, train and track and a reindeer. You can buy other accessories to enhance the village, if you want.
Other product sold also by Department 56 is the Christmas Story Village Ralphie's House. This product is cheaper ($44.99), but also smaller than the previous product. This one is made from porcelain, it is a great gift idea for the young people and measures 8 x 6 x 6. 5 inches, having the weight of 1 pound.
What other youth birthday gift can we take into consideration, while having the Christmas villages in mind as well? Here is another one, even cheaper than the first two products ($38.31), a product which is not exactly a village, but the Christmas Story Village Chop Suey Palace. Like the first two, this one is also sold by Department 56. It is made from porcelain and has these dimensions: 5 x 7 x 5.5 inches.
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.
