Happy Birthday Sweetheart

Monday, January 26th, 2009

I’m told that it is very difficult to buy birthday gifts for someone whose birthday is on or near a major holiday. I would think that it would be easy. There are so many sites that specialize in gifts that also give wonderful ideas for what to get.

I’m not saying that you should give holiday themed presents on birthdays near holidays (that would get really old, really fast…) but you can still get ideas. Take Valentine birthdays as an example. You can get your sweetheart something with hearts on it (because of the holiday and because you love her) but at the same time, something that is not as romantic as the actual Valentine’s gift (you really do have to get a gift for each occasion – not one for both).

is a perfect example of what to give for a Valentine birthday. It’s holiday and love themed but not as romantic as some other gifts. Of course, you can add a romantic message in the personalization if you would like to sweeten the gift up a bit…. Even better, the alarm clock is unisex so gals can give it to their guys as well.

Toast with Personalized Champagne Flutes

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Even though New Year’s Eve has just passed, there are many other celebrations and occasions on which we drink champagne. Probably one of the most common of those celebrations is a wedding. Everyone from the bride and groom to the attendants and guests will have a drink and toast to the new married couple.

To make those toasts even more special, consider a . Personalize a glass for the bride and groom with their names and the date of their big day. You can also personalize a glass for the parents of the bride and groom, the bridesmaids and the groomsmen. The head table would look beautiful with the extra touch of champagne flutes made exclusively for each important member of the wedding party.

A set of personalized champagne flutes can be the start of a new tradition. Each year on the couple’s anniversary, they can bring out their flutes and toast to another happy year together and reminisce on the years that have passed.

Champagne flutes are also perfect for celebrating holidays and birthdays. A personalized champagne flute would be a great addition to a romantic dinner at home for Valentine’s Day or an anniversary. Whatever your reason for celebrating, make it even more memorable with a unique, personalized glass.
