So it is the birthday of your husband, right? You have to come up with some good gifts, otherwise you might upset him. Women don't realize that men like to receive gifts, just as much as they do and they believe that only if they hug them and kiss them is going to be enough.
1. A good and very cheap material present that can be offered to a husband on his birthday is the #1 Husband ($15), which is the perfect product for a morning beverage or late night brew. This mug has 3.75 inches in height and 3 inches in diameter. It is dishwasher and microwave safe.
2. You need to be very careful when buying a product like this, because your husband might get upset because you compare him to a goose. To make sure that this will not happen you can buy another one that will represent you. The price of $5.92 is only for the dutiful husband goose, which can be bought from Miles Kimball.
3. If you believe your husband should get more than a simple mug and a goose, you can buy a more expensive product, like this Trophy Husband Sports Ringer T, available also from CafePress, like the first product. This one is $22.50 and will allow your husband to look great also in tuxedos, even though this is a clothing piece normally worn on casual occasions. A T-shirt like this one is a perfect accessory for business outings. It is made entirely from pre-shrunk cotton and has a double-needled neck and trim.
4. Personal Creations offers for husbands this beautiful personalized framed print ($29.95). Although this is a personalized product, as this company says, you cannot personalize the image you see in the background of these framed prints, but also the message and obviously the name of your recipient. You can admire the tranquil beauty of a harbor lighthouse or, if you like better, a tree with a romantic sunset. The name can have up to 12 characters and the message up to 25 characters per line, 2 lines maximum. These prints come in a cherry frame.
5. Who said that only women should stay in the kitchen and cook all day long? Men can do this too and should do this, at least once in a while, to let their wives or girlfriends relax at a spa or go shopping with their girlfriends. For the activities your husband will perform in the kitchen, we have decided to show you this Trophy Husband 2011 Funny Apron by CafePress ($22). This is only an example of apron; the 2012 version will be soon available.
When you are invited to the birthday party of one of your friends or relatives that celebrates 40 years of existence, you can buy for him some gag gifts, but only if you are certain that he/she will not be offended by your gift. In this article, we will present several products that might affect the relationship between you and your recipient, if he/she doesn't have a strong sense of humor, so be careful when picking them.
1. This product is excellent and can be offered to anyone celebrating 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and so on years of existence, costs $16.49, can be personalized with the name of the recipient and also of the person that offers the present and can be bought from the Factory Card and Party Outlet. It goes under the name of Over the Hill Survival Kit. This product contains all sorts of funny presents, meant to show your recipient that he/she is getting old.
2. If the previous product can be received well by virtually any type of recipient, this one should be offered only to people that can take a bad joke. Even if the name of the product doesn't say too much: the Art of Appreciation Gift Basket ($39.99), its image says more than we need to know.
This is a gift basket that contains all sorts of sweet treats, which are obviously good and can be eaten by all the guests at the party; the problem is that the package has a tombstone shape.
3. Another funny gift is this corkscrew that has written on it “40 & Still Screwin’”. This is $10.41, is sold by Laid Back and comes in a beautiful gift box. It has 1.2 x 3.8 x 5.5 cm and weighs 2.6 ounces.
4. A birthday party would not be the same without personalized mugs or glasses, so a very good recommendation for a gift would be this Mud Pie 40 hand-painted wine glass ($24.69). This is a 16-house wine glass, great for a fun birthday party. The manufacturer warns the user to wash it by hand. It has 8.5 x 4.5 x 4.5″ and weighs 9.6 ounces.
5. Speaking of personalized glasses, here is another one, which is $15, yet seems more complicated: the “Fabulous 40″ glass. This is a black colored glass with crystal and glittered embellishments, that should be washed only by hand. It has 4.7 x 4.7 x 10.5″ and is great for the fun that it brings.
6. And now a personalized mug: the Question Mark “40″ Coffee Mug ($9.99). It is a 14 oz black ceramic mug with a humorous message and is dishwasher safe.
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.
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.
Several gifts for a 50-year-old female will be presented here. They can be bought from gadgets.co.uk and they are in general very cheap.
1. Because at 50, most likely you are a mother, in some situations you are also a grandmother, I believe the most beautiful gift you could receive is from your children. They can offer you a product that represents their love for you. And the first product that is related to something like this on gadgets.co.uk is a mug. Even though the personalized products are better appreciated, today we will present a mug that is not personalized; it is the First Class Mum. Instead of “mum”, as you can see written on the mug, you cannot write the name of your mother, like it happens with other products. The only thing that you can do is to select another recipient, like for example: “dad”, “sent with love” or “friend”. This item is 8.95 GBP and is everything you need in order to deliver some greetings that will show your recipient how much you appreciate her. The mug is made from porcelain, it is hand finished in the United Kingdom and is microwave and dishwasher safe. It is officially licensed by the British Postal Museum and Archive (as you can see, it has a stamp imprinted on it), that is why it needed to be licensed by this Museum.
2. A woman needs to stay fresh on the go, when she goes to bed, when she goes to a party, anytime, anywhere. But in some cases, you forget to perform this operation back at home. For these exact cases, Travalo has created the Mini Atomiser (9.95 GBP). This little thing is a mini refill spray, that allows you to stay fresh whenever the situation. The atomiser is available in sleek silver, black or ravishing red and is made from aircraft grade aluminium to make sure that your perfume is protected. It is conveniently small, to ensure that you will carry it with you anywhere; it is only 80 mm tall and weighs just 12 g. It is uniquely quick, simple and uses a patented easy refill system. This is refillable for a lifetime with your preferred perfume. It comes with warranty included and is eco-friendly. In fact, the manufacturer tells us that 98% of this product can be recycled.
3. Now something funny for a female in her 50s: lavender and love bods. There are cream love bods (8.95 GBP) and multi-colored love bods (8.95 GBP), that are adorable and make the perfect gift for anyone. Because women are especially attracted to whimsical things, they are the main target.
Those that enter gadgets.co.uk will see that most of the products found there cost less than 20 GBP. For this price, you don't need a discount. Nevertheless, in this article, we will present products that have received discounts indeed, products dedicated to women. So if you don't know what products to buy for your lady for her birthday, you are at the right location, because this is exactly what this article is going to recommend.
1. A lady must take care of herself and the first product that comes to my mind when I think of this is the Ila Sports Personal Alarm and Pedometer (19.95 GBP). This is an alarmingly loud pedometer, that has a clock function, counts the distance traveled, calories burnt and steps you have made, can be easily activated and issues sounds of 130 dB. It weighs approximately 65 g and has 95 x 42 x 26 mm. Because jogging, walking and running are great ways to keep in shape, we recommend this product to any person that wants to stay healthy. The department of health recommends to walk about 10,000 steps a day and this is what this little gadget does: it counts your steps, while counting also the calories you have burned when walking those steps.
2. Now another product that eases stress, pain and tension: the Bed of Nails, a product that comes in green and pink and has a price of 39.95 GBP. If you are a native English speaker, you probably know the phrase “bed of nails” and also its significance. Most likely you think of “Ouch!”; Well, even though this product does come with a mat of plastic spikes, it is more relaxing than you think. It is great for relaxation and alleviation of pain, stress and tension, having approximately 42 x 68 cm. Some of the problems that it can eliminate are: malaise, back pain, insomnia, tiredness, tension, constipation, stress, muscle aches and headaches. Please keep this product away from children!
3. This product is created more for a girl; nevertheless, we recommend it for a woman. It is the Love Hearts Tea For One (11.95 GBP). The set contains a design cup, saucer and tea pot. It is not suitable for dishwasher, but it is microwave safe. This product is officially licensed by Love Hearts.
4. If you look at this product, you cannot tell what it is. Let me tell you its name: it is the Cosy Cardie Warmer (14.95 GBP). You can insert natural wheat grain and pure essential oils and refresh the smell in your house, while wearing this product, that is created to warm you up.
A person that will turn 30 soon, most likely will throw a party at which he will invite his friends and his family. Obviously, you cannot go to his birthday without a present. If you don't know from what site to buy the gift or what kind of gifts to buy, let me come with a recommendation: gadgets.co.uk.
1. The first product we present is the golf bag pen holder (14.95 GBP), a perfect pen caddy. We don't need a little birdie to tell us that this gift is perfect for a golf fanatic; this is logical, only by looking at the name of this product. This is designed to look exactly as a golf bag, only that it is miniaturized. Is great to be placed on your desk at the office.
2. Besides going to work, what is the other characteristic of a 30-year-old man? He drinks coffee or tea. In most of the cases, young people are attracted to coffee, although they should be full of energy. Because of this reason, we recommend the Americano Espresso Mug (6.95 GBP). This product is in stock for immediate dispatch from gadgets.co.uk. We recommend this product to those that don't need coffee to live, but simply love drinking it. As you can see, for this price you will receive a double mug, which is great for coffee lovers. This product is not microwave, nor dishwasher safe.
3. I don't know why all the products presented here are related to the work of that 30-year-old man that is celebrating his birthday. Probably because at 30, you tend to work a lot. The third product we recommend is the Orb Clock (12.95 GBP). This is more than just a funky looking timepiece. This is a clock that allows your recipient to go to work when he must. It would be interesting if this product would be offered by his boss. This Orb Clock requires 3 AAA batteries, is lightweight and portable, has a built-in calendar and uses 4 relaxing colored lights. It also presents the temperature in your room. In other words, it lets you get your sleep under absolutely perfect conditions.
4. This gadget is really amazing for those that are in love with water. It is the Aquacase designed for iPhone (19.95 GBP) and iPad (39.95 GBP). Now, you can benefit of ultimate portability and enjoy a pool at the same time. Devices like the iPhone, iPad are extremely sophisticated and they are very much susceptible to damaging effects, coming from any liquid. So they are unsuitable to be used in areas where they may come in contact with water. Luckily, now there is Aquacase.
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.
In case you are searching for some gag gifts for your 30-year-old friend, here are some ideas. First of all, I would like to say that there might be persons that will not be satisfied with these products, so before buying them, test the person if he/she likes a gag gift. Otherwise, don't buy!
1. Even if this product looks like a toilet that is full of… let's name them “liquids”, it is in fact a mug filled with hot chocolate. It is the Big Mouth Toys Toilet Mug, that is available at the Big Mouth Toys for $11.99. This product is made from ceramic and is dishwasher safe. It has 5 x 3 x 4″ and a weight of 1.6 pounds. You can buy it from Amazon if you live in the United States and also in other countries, because it is available for international delivery as well.
2. Another mug which you can find at the Big Mouth Toys, this time for only $8.82) is the Gun Mug. This product has received many positive reviews; it is a pistol shaped ceramic coffee mug, dishwasher safe. This would be a great gag gift for a person in law enforcement.
3. The Grenade Mug ($9.99) is another product made from ceramic and sold by the same company as the previous product. It is dishwasher safe and doesn't carry an extended warranty. You can play a prank on your work colleagues and tell them that if they not stop complaining, you will blow them away, by exploding this grenade. This is interesting to see when you're the manager and do a thing like this to your employees.
4. Another potential gag gift that you can offer to your friends is the Fanny Bank Funny Farting Coin Drop Bank, available at the Big Mouse Toys. It is $10.11 and besides that it is a useful product for saving some money (coins), it also makes a loud digital fart sound when coins are deposited. This is a great gag gift for a person that has everything. Its dimensions are 6 x 6 x 6 inches and the shipping weight is of 13.4 ounces. The manufacturer recommends this product to people that are at least 10. You need 3 AA batteries (included).
5. If you are a manager, you definitely need a product like this.

This is the Bullshit Button designed by Gemmy ($9.95); it makes hilarious statements.
