Birthday Gifts

Tell me moreless

Need help finding a fabulous birthday gift? Give yourself a present- skip the shops and buy it online. Birthday gifts to put smile on any birthday boy or girl’s face are abundant and are easy to find in the virtual Aladdin's cave that is the world wide web. Just remember these simple rules...

 

Choose relationship appropriate birthday gifts.

Always buy birthday gifts that reflect your relationship with the receiver. You wouldn't buy the same birthday gift for your mom that you would your girlfriend, would you? We would hope not!

 

Remember it's their birthday gift, not yours!

Put their interests first. Don't buy your husband a DIY book because you want him to put up a few shelves, nor buy your brother a tie because you think he needs to ditch the grunge look. Buy birthday gifts for them, and not you!

 

Keep it personal.

Personalized birthday gifts offer a more sentimental option and are particularly fitting on landmark birthdays, like a 21st or a 40th celebration. An engraved bracelet, an embossed journal or a custom print are all original ways to treat your loved one.

 

It's not about the money, honey.

Avoid giving a birthday gift with an obvious monetary value, and never ever give cash! Although gift vouchers are sometimes the most practical option, they can be impersonal and imply a lack of imagination. If he's just too difficult to buy for, consider a gift experience – a day on the race track or a scuba diving lesson is an original alternative to a gift voucher.
