Awesome Christmas Tips

Published by Buy Gifts - in Tips

There’s no bigger holiday around than Christmas. With our helpful tips, you will make this holiday season a memorable one.


  1. Get creative with Christmas gift wrapping. You can really spruce up your package by applying festive patterns to make gift giving more enjoyable while adding sentimental value. Consider using cut-outs from tissue paper, construction paper, doilies, etc. This is both fun and light on the pockets when considering the expenses of purchasing wrapping paper. To “wrap” it all up, personalize each package with a note for that special person!
  2. Fireproof your Christmas Tree. Mix 1 cup ammonium sulfate, 1 half cup of boric acid and 2 tablespoons or borax into one gallon of water. Spray down the tree with this solution and pour the remainder into the basin of the tree stand.
  3. Dodge the woes of Christmas shopping. Always avoid weekends. Although the marketing of sales are geared toward the weekends, promotional events generally extend throughout the weekdays. Don’t let the hype of a “weekend” sale deceive you into a frenzy of looking for a parking spot and waiting in exhausting checkout lines. Do your Christmas shopping early and you will reap the benefits of stumbling across bargains for quality items- remember quality over quantity!
  4. Spice up your party. Avoid the typical, bland holiday gathering by organizing your party around a theme, such as “Christmas Past” or “Twelve Days of Christmas.” Plan foods around your theme and encourage guests to dress the part.
  5. Get in the mix. Try online Christmas shopping. The benefits of shopping online often include faster service, immediate attention to “out-of-stock” merchandise, tax-free purchases, and free-shipping. Online Christmas shopping often opens up opportunities to receiving special promotion prices and products that aren’t readily available to “in-store” customers. How much more convenient than shopping in the comfort of your own home get?
  6. Send a Christmas letter. Tired of Christmas cards? Change it up by sending your friends and relatives a brief letter highlighting your year. Keep your letter light-hearted and entertaining. Those receiving the letter will appreciate a break from the Christmas card routine. This is also one of the few socially acceptable ways to boast about your own accomplishments.
  7. Consider LED Christmas lights. In recent years, LED Christmas lights have gained popularity for several reasons. The cost efficiency of LED lights has been proven to be much more beneficial than normal lights. The amount of energy used in LED Christmas lights is much less than that of traditional lights, which will save you money on your electricity bill. Though the initial cost of LED lights is slightly higher, the lifespan of LED lights compensate for the cost- you will no longer need to worry about spending money on replacing lights every year!
  8. Keep all receipts throughout the holiday season. Always save receipts for the conventional reason of returning items. Aside from that, there is nothing more important than keeping a budget of how much spending was done during a very costly and busy time of year. By reflecting on your purchases that range from expenses for Christmas parties, presents, cards, driving, decorations, etc., needless spending and ways to cut costs may be beneficial for the following holiday seasons.
  9. With the economy the way it is, if you buy any gift cards for christmas gifts make sure they are from a stable company that is going to be around when its time to use the cards. Because the stores more than likely will not issue refunds for gift cards if they have closed.
  10. Shop for Christmas gifts all year ’round! Keep a notebook with the names of the persons for whom you are buying and buy the gifts when they’re on special! Then write in the item purchased and when you bought it before you stash the gifts away. Not only do you save money all year, you can also jot down notes on what they like (and what they don’t). Best of all, you can keep track of for whom you’ve bought–and keep from accidentally buying gifts for the same person or persons twice!
  11. In the 1950′s, a major flour and cake-mix manufacturer used the ad slogan “Nothin’ says lovin’ like something from the oven.” Still true! For nearly 30 years, I have given my immediate family members (and through the years, many co-workers) homemade banana bread based on my mother’s recipe (which was also my grandmother and great-grandmother’s recipe!). It takes a little time, but it costs very little to make dozens of loaves of bread, and my family still appreciates the memory of their mother/grandmother’s banana bread. In fact, one family member once summed it up this way: “It just isn’t Christmas without Uncle Charlie’s banana bread.”
  12. Sooner or later it happens to all of us–we get a gift that we really don’t like or can’t use. Some of us “regift” the item–that is, pass it on as a gift for another occasion–but if you do, be careful about how you regift it. Avoid sending the gift on to a family member–or worse yet, to the family member who gave it to you in the first place! If you know of someone outside your immediate family who can use or would like the gift, send it on to him or her instead. Better yet, donate the unwanted gift to a charitable group or organization.
  13. Set a budget and make a list in advance so you don’t get off track and forget what your shopping for. This will help you to save money, instead of running to the store with your credit card and impulse shopping.
  14. Save your reciepts for at least 90 days after your purchase just in case you have a faulty/defective gift, missing a part, or a wrong size You can also get gift reciepts to give to the recipient as well.
  15. Don’t forget to remove the price tags/stickers off the items before you wrap the package.
  16. Take advantage of “AFTER CHRISTMAS SALES” to get supllies and gifts for next year. You can get some nice gifts and extra christmas supplies for up to 75% for 2-3 weeks after christmas.
  17. Shop online and avoid the Christmas traffic and lines. Most online retailers have discounts on shipping or other discounts to offset the shipping charges, and if the retailer doesn’t have a store in your state you can avoid paying sales tax as well.
  18. Shop in off-peak hours and avoid weekends. Most stores have extended hours for the Christmas holiday by opening earlier and closing later. Get up and go early in the morning or late at night. This will help avoid the long lines and busy isles.
  19. If you are visiting family for the holidays and have issues in your life (i.e. bankruptcy, illness, filing for divorce, etc.), unless it is absolutely unavoidable, this is NOT the time to bring any of these things up for discussion! Try to find a more suitable time that you can discuss these things in better surroundings where you have more time to think and concentrate. If you must bring these subjects up, find a time and place to do it where you have as much privacy as possible.
  20. Make sure you do your online Christmas shopping earlier than later! Like retail stores, online stores can run out of stock when it gets closer to Christmas.
  21. If you brought home a live Christmas tree make sure you remember to water it so it stays fresh and green while you have it in your home.
  22. Use caution when decorating your house with Christmas lights. If you are on a ladder and especially if you are on the roof, make sure you have someone spotting you in case you slip and fall, or even need an extra hand.
  23. It’s not all about the presents. The greatest gift you can give someone is the gift of unconditional “love”.
  24. With the seemingly never-ending series of postage increases in recent years, you should take a serious second look at your Christmas card list. Granted, the Postal Service and the greeting-card companies may not like it, but if you’re sending cards to friends and relatives who haven’t responded in more than two years, you’re throwing away the cost of the card as well as the postage stamp itself. You may want to drop such people from your list. Check to see if they’re using e-mail or some other social media to send holiday greetings. If they are, follow suit and you’ll save money on both stamps and cards. If they don’t have access to e-mail or social media, double-check their addresses (particularly older friends and relatives) and update accordingly; I have had family members who have had to move into retirement homes or care centers between Christmases and found out they missed the card and the contact.

Great Tips for Father’s Day

Published by Buy Gifts - in Tips

Father’s Day is the day for you let your dad see how much he means to you. So, use some of the tips below to make the day even more special.


  1. You don’t need to plan a huge celebration to let your dad know just how much he means to you. Sometimes it means more just to spend the day with him doing a hobby that he loves – even if you don’t.
  2. Even dads like breakfast in bed. It does not have to be an elaborate meal – especially if you have kids underfoot. Just a hot cup of coffee, a bowel of his favorite cereal and some toast will work. Remember it is the thought that counts.
  3. You don’t have to break the bank to get dad a gift on father’s day – but if he really does not need a tie – then don’t get him one. Make sure you get him something that he will really love – such as tickets to a sporting event or a new power tool.
  4. A great gift idea, especially if you wait until the last minute, is to get your dad a gift card to one of his favorite stores or restaurants. Almost every store or restaurant has a gift card available and that way he can get something he really wants, instead of you having to guess. Most super centers, book stores and big grocery stores now sell gift cards to the more popular restaurants.
  5. If you give your mother flowers for Mother’s Day, don’t forget that maybe your father might like them, too! Your father might like the idea of a new plant or bush for the yard.
  6. Some dads may like the idea of the gift of a day off. Don’t bother him with petty things on Father’s Day. Let him sleep in for a change and let him watch what he wants on TV!
  7. Give your dad a homemade coupon book. In it you can put coupons that are redeemable for a home cooked meal, mowing/watering the lawn, cleaning the garage, or any other chores around the house that your dad might do on a regular basis.
  8. If your dad has a hobby of some kind – like playing golf, photography, etc. – you can arrange for him to take a day class to improve his skills!
  9. Maximize your resources and purchase a gift collectively among family members/friends to get Dad a gift that would otherwise be out of your price range. This gives you the chance to buy a laptop, a digital camera, a big screen TV, appliances, and more!
  10. Father’s Day may be a good time to help your dad get a few things done he’s been trying to avoid. You may want to volunteer to wash/detail/vacuum his car for him, or fill it up out of your own pocket. Your dad deserves to drive a car that looks good!
  11. Other great gift ideas for your Father are; a nice comfortable hammock, a new grill (men love to cook out!) or a new watch (something masculine).
  12. Every guy is different, but my idea of a great Father’s Day includes some good cooking, some unencumbered time to have my kids play with me, and maybe even a trip to the pool or a new gadget I’ve been wanting. The last two are optional.
  13. Need fathers day gift ideas? Think about what your father loves the most. Is he a couch potato? Give him an organizer for his remotes. Is he a sports fanatic? How about a jersey with his favorite team. Does he have a fancy car? Give him a full car car kit with wash, wax, detailing tools, etc. With a little creative thought, you should have no trouble coming up with fathers day gift ideas. Just think about what he likes. And don’t forget to spoil him. It’s his special day!
  14. Don’t forget to give him a card! Whether it be a card bought from the store or a handmade card from all the kids, it’ll make dad’s day.
  15. Treat your dad to a day at the ol’ ball park! It will be a fun day full of baseball, hot dogs, and more!
  16. Have the kids make a Father’s Day medal or award that has a special message like “Best Dad” or “We love you Dad!”
  17. Give your father a useful gift that he can use everyday instead of a tie or shirt. If your dad loves to cook, a food thermometer makes a wonderful gift that will also promote food safety.
  18. First, make sure Dad has nothing work related to do that day. Take care of his chores for him.
  19. Dads don’t like to rush. Plan a day the has plenty of down time. Plan an outing, but only if you can make it a no hassle trip.
  20. Buy your dad something personalized that he can keep for years to come. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it should remind him of favorite hobby or activity.
  21. Don’t Buy your dad anything that involves work! Nothing to plant or build unless it is absolutely his passion.
  22. Stick around that day. Tell your friends you are busy. Hang out with your Dad, or at least be around (to cater to his every whim.)
  23. Dads not only like treats, but they actually need them in order to remain healthy. You know what he likes – make sure you have plenty of it on hand.
  24. It is a scientific fact that dads need a high degree of relaxation on Fathers Day. Plan a day the requires no effort on his part. If possible, your dad should not be moved more than a few inches in any direction.
  25. Dads are stress magnets. Something that massages or relaxes is a good idea.
  26. It is extremely important to keep your Dad well hydrating on Fathers Day. I suggest keeping a small bucket of whatever he likes to drink within his grasp at all times. And make sure it’s nice and cold.
  27. Don’t talk about money, car problems, or anything else that could distract Dad from the primary purpose of this day which is Relaxation! A recent European study showed that it can take the average Dad up to seven years to recover from just one bad Fathers Days.
  28. If Dad doesn’t like ‘em don’t invite ‘em over. That includes your new boyfriend with the Tattoos and Motorcycle.
  29. Take your Dad to lunch and make sure you pick up the tab.
  30. If I was your Dad, I would want you to wash and wax my car. In fact, I still want you to wash and wax my car.
  31. Do things for Dad that you know he hates to do himself. Weeding, changing the oil in the mower, painting the mail box?
  32. Once your dad has been properly fed and cared for, He will need to be placed in a comfortable position. Ideally, on a couch or in a hammock. He will need to be left completely undisturbed for at least one hour.
  33. Don’t forget a Father’s Day cake! Personalize it with his name. If he’s on a diet, you could do cupcakes instead.
  34. Buy your day an “experience” for Father’s Day. They have anything from driving a race car, learning to cook, deep sea fishing, a helicopter ride, brewing your own beer, and more!
  35. If your dad is a golfer, buy him a new set of golf clubs for Father’s Day! If you can’t afford a whole set, try replacing one or two of his most worn out clubs with new ones.
  36. Buy your dad an everyday gift for Father’s Day that he wouldn’t normally think to buy himself like a new wallet or pair of nice sunglasses.
  37. Don’t forget to wish the other dads that you know a happy Father’s Day!
  38. Buy your dad a season of his favorite old TV show series on DVD!
  39. Buy your dad a CD of his favorite band or download onto his iPod some songs from his favorite music style!
  40. If you can’t figure out what to get your dad for Father’s Day, just ask him! It’s better to get him something he wants rather than another tie.
  41. Get your dad a hip new technological gadget like a GPS, smart phone, or Blu-Ray Player!
  42. Sometimes waiting until the last minute isn’t always a bad thing as many stores will have Father’s Day sales the week before or the weekend of the holiday.
  43. Buy your dad a big bottle of his favorite cologne this Father’s Day!
  44. Buy your dad a personalized gift with his name on it for Father’s Day. It will be something he will appreciate forever and you will show how much you care by buying him a truly unique gift.

30 Awesome Mother’s Day Tips

Published by Buy Gifts - in Tips

Mother’s Day is the time to show your mom how much you appreciate everything that she does for the family. So here are some great ideas on how to celebrate her.


  1. While store bought cards are great, there is nothing better then a homemade card filled with words from the heart. The sky is the limit as to what a homemade card can be made with or say, just let your imagination go wild. Your Mom will love it no matter what.
  2. Every mom loves spending quality time with her kids. Why not let that be your gift this year to her. Set aside the time for you and her to go to dinner, go to a movie, go shopping or to just hang out and talk. Those memories will last far longer then anything you could buy her.
  3.  Treat your mom to a mini makeover. Set up a time for her to get a new haircut and a new outfit.
  4.  A home cooked meal is always a great gift for mother’s day. You can start with fixing her breakfast in bed and end the day with her favorite foods for dinner. Just remember to also clean up the kitchen!
  5. Buy your mom everything that she will need to have a spa day at home. Buy a CD with relaxing music, bath salts and bubble bath, fluffy slippers and robe, new nail polish and other manicure/pedicure supplies. She’ll love the chance to lock herself in the bathroom and have a stress free day.
  6. Home made gifts are a great idea. You can put together a photo album for her. You can also put together a box of things she regularly uses such as pens, paper, lotion, and cosmetics. Search the internet for more homemade gift ideas for mom.
  7. If you want to spend a little money on a gift for mom, but want something that will last for a long time, you can purchase a flowering plant, instead of cut flowers, or bush to plant in the yard or in a container for her house. You can also purchase a bird or hummingbird feeder so that she can watch the birds outside. You can also purchase a subscription to her favorite magazine so that she will receive it for a year or two years.
  8. Give your mom a homemade coupon book. In it you can put coupons that are redeemable for a home cooked meal, cleaning the windows, doing her laundry, taking her out to dinner and so much more.
  9. If your mom has a hobby of some kind – like playing golf, photography, scrapbooking – you can arrange for her to take a day class to improve her skills!
  10. If you want to buy your mom a piece of jewelry, you don’t necessarily have to go out and buy something new. You can go to an antiques dealer and find jewelry that is perfect for your mom, but does not necessarily cost as much as something new. Or perhaps you have an older piece of jewelry that you can have repurposed for your mom.
  11. If your mom works hard to be eco-friendly then you can take that into consideration when buying her a gift. You can buy her environmentally friendly cosmetics, or candles made from beeswax. Just do an internet search for earth friendly gifts for mom and you will find hundreds of ideas.
  12. Maximize your resources and purchase a gift collectively among family members/friends to get Mom a gift that would otherwise be out of your price range. This gives you the chance to buy a laptop, a digital camera, a big screen TV, appliances, and more!
  13. I think that a flower corsage to wear on Mother’s Day is a great way to make Mom feel special. Don’t forget one for your significant other as well, if you have kids!
  14. Supposedly, back in the day, men and boys wore a corsage on Mother’s Day – red if your mother was still living, and white if she was deceased. I like the idea of Mom getting to wear the flower better, though.
  15. Skip the “Mother’s Day Brunch” at your local chain restaurant. The place will be crammed to the max with people, the servers will be over-worked and harried, and because of the amount of people coming in and out and the “special” menu, the food probably won’t be that good. Take the time to cook something for your mother. Even if you’re not the next Gordon Ramsay or Bobby Flay, your mother will appreciate the extra effort you’ve made.
  16. Have the younger kids get together and make a bouquet of paper flowers to give to their mom.
  17. Make your Mom a CD of her favorite tunes! She’ll love hearing all the songs that she loves.
  18. Help with the Housework the day before Mothers Day so Mom can really relax!
  19. Make sure you take the time to let Mom know how much you love her and the you really appreciate all the things she does for you!
  20. If weather permits – take Mom for a picnic in the park. Keep simple and have fun!
  21. Mom loves to see her family happy – No fighting that day or that weekend!
  22. Take lots of pictures and start a Mothers day scrap book that you can both add to each year.
  23. If you are taking mom out for Mother’s Day, don’t have her drive. Be her chauffeur for her special day.
  24. Write your mom a poem telling her how much you love her. She’ll enjoy the heartfelt, personal effort.
  25. Surprise your mom with a homemade sleeping mask the day before Mothers Day so she can peacefully sleep in on her special day.
  26. Give your mom a gift card to her favorite clothing store. She’ll love buying new outfits for herself on Mother’s Day.
  27. If this is your wife’s first Mother’s Day, make it the best. Let her relax while you take care of the baby.
  28. Check the local newspaper for any Mother’s Day events that may be going on around town.
  29. If your mom likes board games, pull out her favorite one and play together as a family.
  30. If your mother loves to cook, make her a recipe book so she can keep all her favorite ones in one place.
  31. Many moms (and grandmas) love those T-shirts with the names of their children or grandchildren on them. While some stores offer prepared kits with several paint tubes for your T-shirt, find an inexpensive but durable plain white or colored T-shirt at a local store, then purchase fabric paints at a craft store and have the kids write their names (or put their hand prints) on the shirt. Follow the instructions with the fabric paints and you’ll have a one-of-a-kind masterpiece… hands down!

Top 5 Gifts for Musicians

Published by Buy Gifts - in Gifts & Gift Ideas, Musician Gifts

Need gifts for musicians? You might be wondering what to get your favorite musician for their birthday or maybe as a unique Christmas gift. The first thing to come to mind is something practical but how on earth can you know if it’s something they already have or not? That’s where getting a little creative comes in handy. For example, instead of trying to buy a drummer a new cymbal (because you couldn’t possibly know what types of cymbals he likes), try opting for something more practical like a drum-themed T-shirt or a handy drumset keychain. The same goes for guitar. You might be considering a set of colorful guitar picks but it’s going to prove hard to know what kind of picks he uses. Try something where you don’t have to know this like a personalized guitar picture or coaster set. We’ve looked around a bit and put together what we feel are among the top music gift selections for musicians.

Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Published by Buy Gifts - in Father's Day Gifts, Gifts & Gift Ideas

Need a unique gift for dad for Fathers Day? We’re here to help. The first thing you may want to do is define the characteristics of your father. When you’re in tune to their personality type and idiosyncrasies, you’re more apt to buy the right product for him. For example, everyone will tell you that the perfect gift for father’s day is a tie. But what if your dad rarely ever wears ties? Furthermore, we feel ties have been worn out. They’re much too predictable as a gift and we think more thought should go into the gift.

Father's Day Gifts and Ideas

So, what about your dad? What does he like? What is his personality like? Is he your typical sports fanatic? Does he like to be outside? Is he your average geek type. Does he read a lot?  Tuning into these questions first and foremost will help you land that perfect gift. For example, a geek-type-of-dad might enjoy some kind of accessory that works with his iPhone or mobile device. If he’s the outdoorsy type, maybe a cool hammock for the backyard. If he reads quite a bit, maybe you could get him a Kindle, if he doesn’t already have one, or a Kindle add-on accessory. Of course, if he likes sports, there is a plethora of sports related gifts and ideas on the market that would be suitable for him. Here are some ideas to help make it a little easier for you:

How about a cool grill apron? You can even get it personalized with “Dad” or his initials.


Gift Ideas for Fathers Day



Here’s another neat idea for Father’s Day. Give him a reward for “Best Dad Ever!”

Best Birthday Gifts

Published by Buy Gifts - in Birthday Gifts and Ideas, Gifts & Gift Ideas

Their birthday is coming up fast and you can’t believe you almost forgot. There’s time to get a nice gift but everyone’s first thought is usually, “What on earth will I get?” You wonder how much money you should spend and if you’re going to be able to find something unique. Well, just relax. We’ve got some tips to help relieve the stress just a little and help your gift be the best one.

Personalized Tote Bags

Despite popular opinion, the best birthday gifts aren’t always the ones in the bigger boxes or the most elaborate gift wrap. Sure, they might make the best first impression but if you really want to hit a home run, put some thought into the person you’re buying for and buy a gift that’s “perfectly” suited for them. Ask yourself a few questions like, “What do THEY really like”. You might like books and have the latest title in mind but are you sure they’re reader? Just because you’ve seen them read a magazine doesn’t mean that’s their favorite thing. Do they like to shop? Then maybe a gift card would be a nice option. But, gift cards can be a little bit boring as a gift and it’s debatable whether that’s always the best option.

If you can manage to give your gift a personal touch, that’s what usually makes a big impression on the recipient. You might have done that with birthday cards before. You know, like when you jazz it up with some colored pencils or fancy up the envelope? But what about the gift itself? Let’s say the person with the birthday likes antiques or things that have an antique-like flair. You could visit an estate sale and look for a unique item that you could put in a frame perhaps. Or maybe the other way around. You could find a unique, anitquish type of frame and put a personal poem inside or a picture of the two of you together. That would make your gift the best – very original and well thought-out.

You might also think about something trendy as a great birthday gift idea. People like getting things that are recently popular. Think about things like the iPhone, iPad or other smart phones. Trendy items are iphone accessories and covers and bling products that go with all the new devices on the market these days from the Samsung phones to the Androids (and everything in between). Those are among the best ideas for birthdays because people like being up on knew trends and the best way to be familiar with the latest and greatest is to be in the game yourself.

Birthday Gift Idea

When picking out a birthday gift, take your time and use the Golden Rule approach. How would you like someone to shop for you when buying a gift? Would you like to receive something blasé or something that had some thought behind it and a personal touch? If you want to buy the best gift for that special person, buy a gift that has a little bit of “you” in it. That way, you’re sure to get it right and watching their face when they open it up will be your reward for the time you spent on getting it right.
