Not only does it encourage reflection on the relationship that can lead to a stronger, healthier bond, but for many couples a birthday leads to a renewed love for each other. For your friends’ birthday, make them even happier by finding the perfect gift.

Traditional Birthday Gifts

A traditional type of gift is related to each birthday. For example, the first year is something made of paper, the second year is made of cotton, and the third year is made of leather.

There is also a list of modern gifts associated with each anniversary, such as watches for the first anniversary, china for the second, and crystal or glass for the third. If you are not sure what to buy as a gift for your friends, buy something related to the number of years they have been together, it will be easier to limit your options and find something meaningful.

Frame Printing

For a sentimental couple, get a special photo of them at a special time and print on a board. In this way, have the picture printed and framed professionally. This is a gift that will be kept for many years and can even be hung in a prominent place, such as the front entrance hall or over the fireplace in the living room.

Prints on frames and frames can be ordered online or in person at a photo center. If you don’t have a picture of the couple, but are on a social network, see if the couple has any pictures posted on their profiles that you can download for this purpose.

Personalized Couple Dolls

For a more humorous gift, consider ordering personalized dolls that look like your friends. Many websites can be found online that sell these types of dolls. To order, you will first need to choose which body you want your friends to have.

Stick figure couples have bodies in the same position, dressed the same (like superheroes), or doing something together (like holding hands). You will also need to send some pictures of your friends to the artist to look at, when creating the dolls’ heads.

Gift Card

A card giving away a romantic night to a couple somewhere is a great birthday present for busy couples. This gives them an excuse to forget all of their responsibilities and just have fun, while enjoying each other’s company.

Gift cards can be purchased in a wide variety of places, including restaurants, music theaters, cinemas, museums, science centers, amusement parks, water parks, zoos, aquariums, couples spas, and classes for something they like.

Alternatively, you can pay in advance for one night in an elegant hotel near the couple’s home. Just make sure that the couple is free on the weekend you book the hotel or that the hotel will allow you to reschedule the reservation without penalty.

How to Keep Your Gift Secret?

There is no greater frustration than trying to keep a secret and fail. But even worse, is to buy a gift for someone on the sly and be discovered. Therefore, we will help you, who want to give that special person a gift, to hide your memory. But first, how about finding out why we keep it a secret?

Why Do We Keep Secret?

why keep secret

Confiding a secret to someone or keeping a secret received is always a very difficult and complex act. After all, we are dealing with feelings, which makes the weight of our actions much greater. And, according to experts, regardless of the importance of the subject matter, secrets were made to be respected.

One of the biggest motivations when keeping or revealing a secret is the feeling of having inside information. Knowing how to respect the desire to keep something confidential is a matter of cultural values. We need to be better trained to understand the great importance of a secret. In everyday life, few people are able to see this.

And of course, the supposed fact of having inside information gives people “power”. Therefore, keeping or revealing secrets has everything to do with the objective that we want to exercise with this “power”.

How to Keep Your Own Secret?

own secret gift

The first step in keeping your own secret, as is the case with a gift, is to decide the duration of that secret. If it is brief, try to be distracted by other activities (such as work and leisure). In the case of longer secrets, everything will depend on your psychology.

As everything we keep ONLY with us can be harmful, seek a compromise that does not harm your secret but at the same time does not denigrate your mind.

An alternative is to tell a psychologist, for example, or someone of extreme confidence that does not “get in the way” of keeping your secret.

In case you need to tell this lasting secret to a “trustworthy” person, check out some facts:

How to Reveal a Secret?

As we said above, the disclosure of a secret is always a “complicated” or special moment, whether positive or negative, spontaneous or necessary. There are some “tactics” to lighten the situation, check it out:

How to Choose the Ideal Gift for Anniversary

Anniversary Day is a special date. However, the question that always hangs on people’s heads is “how to choose the ideal gift for my partner?”. Sometimes it is really difficult to find something that looks so special. And you, have you thought about the memory you will dedicate to the person you love? We can help you!

What to Give?

partner special attention

Anniversary Day requires special attention from the partner. For this reason, in addition to material gifts, it is always nice to also present “emotional” memories, such as picture frames, handwritten letters, flowers, and everything else.

You can also present your partner with printed mugs and t-shirts, like the ones we will present below.

Shirts

T-shirt customization has been well known in the market for a few years. That’s because you can customize different types of fabrics with different prints. One of the most common gifts is T-shirts with pictures of the loved one or various symbols of popular taste: prints of films and series or even related to sports.

To produce this type of product, you will basically need three elements: stamping machine, printer, and input suppliers. In the past, many people used silk to make prints on T-shirts, however this practice has been replaced by printing, which is the process of sublimation or transfer.

Silk is an excellent technique, however it requires drying time, generates a lot of dirt and, mainly, it needs a larger space to operate efficiently, unlike the sublimation process, which is fast and without leaving residues.

Suppliers are also extremely important factors. After all, in addition to the printing machine’s quality and the print, you also need to have a T-shirt with excellent fabric, resistant to recurrent washing, and other external factors.

We have a related gift guide content about Creative Gifts for Men which will guide you right choice present more gift for your partner.

Pillows

personalized pillows

Following the line of personalized t-shirts, the pillows are also a big hit at this time of year. Whether with pictures of the couple or the most different themes, the pillows are a good gift because they can easily be personalized.

Making a product like this and making it your own is easy. You will need, just like on T-shirts, 3 things: a stamping machine, a sublimation printer and a cushion cover for stamping. With these three elements, just choose the face you want to give to your gift and make yours!

It is important to remember that the tips given for personalized t-shirts are also valid here.

Coffee Mugs

When it comes to custom, personalized mugs are particularly interesting. They can be an excellent option for individual gifts or for a larger group, and that is why they are so famous. Their advantage is due to the durability and also because they can be used in the most different situations. Whether at home or at the office, whether for drinking or storing pens or even toothbrushes.

As in the previous cases, the mugs can also be personalized with photos and thematic prints. Thinking of doing one of these? You only have (again) 3 elements: a mug stamping machine, a printer, and the special mug for personalization.

Creative Gifts for Men

Who has never had trouble giving gifts to men or buying gifts for husbands? We often end up giving the same gifts, don’t we? But to help you, I have separated a list with some creative gifts for men to be able to present them with different and fun things!

Beard kit

For men who are trying to grow a beard, a beard kit can be an excellent gift. You can assemble it yourself with different products, or you can find some ready-made kit.

A good place to look is at the new barbershops. Many of them nowadays resell known products or manufacture their own products. You may find a perfect kit for those you want to give as a gift!

Kit for beer tasting

For men in love with beer, nothing better than a box with some of the best craft beers.

A cool way to make the gift more creative is to create a theme for your kit. For example: with the Switzerland beers theme, you can fill a box or basket with beers imported from Switzerland of different types and flavors.

Sound box with lamp

A more wild gift, but also very cool, is the speaker with a lamp. Nowadays you find several models: simple and small boxes, big boxes with different lights.

Small drone

For men who love new technologies, the drone is a great gift option. It is practically an adult toy, and the dream of consumption of many men today.

Although there are more expensive and complex models, there are also simpler and smaller models, and even with very affordable prices. It is the chance to give a creative, modern, and very current gift.

Portable coffee maker

For those who love coffee, this gift is a great dream! The portable coffee maker has emerged with strength, with more and more models available. Is there anything better for those who are passionate about drinking?

3D printer pen

Another gift option for men who love new technologies is the 3D printer pen. You find very affordable price options, and it is a gift that can generate several other “gifts”.

Themed Mug

A creative, simple, and inexpensive gift for those who want to present men, is the thematic mug. Think of some striking personality trait and choose a mug that matches well. I already made this suggestion here in the post of creative gifts.

Some mugs mimic camera lenses, LEGO mugs, series mugs, films and bands, and even thermosensitive mugs, which change color or design when you pour a hot drink on them.

Books

Books are also a great gift when we get to know the person we are gifting better to. A good way to leave this creative idea, is to do the same in the beer kit: choose a theme.

Is the man you are going to gift an economist? You can put together three good books on finance or the financial market. Does he like science fiction? Search for some new books of the genre to include in your gift.

Vintage glasses

A good gift for men who like to worry about what they wear and their style is vintage glasses. It can also be a modern pair of glasses if it matches more with his personality.

Where to store wedding gifts when the apartment is not ready yet?

Often one of the biggest challenges a couple faces before marriage is the apartment. Getting everything ready in the new home is an important step, but it requires work and effort, and it does not always depend only on us. So today I brought a tip for newlyweds who have already asked or are asking themselves: where to store wedding gifts when the apartment is not ready yet?

If this is your case, know that you are not alone: ​​this happens to many other couples. And most importantly, I have an amazing tip for you! Interested? Just keep following the article to check it out.

Where to store wedding gifts when the apartment is not ready yet?

The wedding is one of the most important events in the life of the bride and groom. They start planning months or even years before the day of the event. You have to decide the date, the guest list, the services, the dress, the gift list, etc. When they think everything is ready and solved for the big day, an unexpected thing happens: the apartment’s delivery date is late.

The newlyweds have already received many gifts and have nowhere to leave so much, as they expected to leave everything in the new apartment. To avoid headaches, a great alternative for cases like this is self storage.

What is self storage?

Self storage is a place to rent private boxes temporarily. You can store whatever you want inside the box: furniture, objects, clothes, documents and, of course, wedding gifts.

Access is restricted to the customer, i.e., only the person who rented the box has the key to access their things when it is convenient, within the company’s opening hours. Thus, as the wedding gifts arrive, the bride and groom can take them little by little to the box.

There is no reason to worry about leaving valuables, such as appliances or layettes. These locations are considered very safe, as they are strategically located and have full-time monitoring cameras. Many of them also have indoor parking, further guaranteeing security.

The box is organized by the person who rented it. Thus, the customer decides what is on the floor, what can be placed on top, what can break and deserves more care, etc.

What is the best way to store gifts?

It is important to wrap with bubble wrap for small, medium, and fragile objects, easily breaking or scratching. It is very common to win fragile wedding gift presents: crockery, ornaments, mirrors, etc. Bubble wrap is resistant and helps to protect objects when moving.

Self storage is a great place to store furniture because it receives frequent maintenance, that is, it is clean and free from threats, such as termites, rodents, and other animals that can damage objects. The box also protects the furniture from the sun and moisture, factors that also degrade the furniture, especially if they are made of wood.

For small gifts, such as jewelry and small decorative items, the best option is to keep in boxes. If possible, put name tags. So there is no risk of these small objects being lost among the others present.

The wedding dress may not be part of the gifts, but its symbolic value is usually very high. It is one of the most appreciated and important pieces on the wedding day, but that does not mean that it should be left in a drawer after that.

 

The best way to store the dress is to wrap it in plastic and hang it on a hanger. This will protect it from dust, and it will be free of wrinkles.

With all these tips, the long-awaited day will be better spent, and the bride and groom will be at ease knowing that their newest belongings are stored in a safe and organized way.

I hope you enjoyed checking out this tip on where to store wedding gifts when the apartment is not ready yet.

5 Different Gifts to Include on Your Wedding List

Nowadays, it is common to first live together, like a test drive, before going up to the altar. A consequence of this modern relationship is that the bride and groom already have their house assembled when they decide to make the union official. With that, classic gifts like cutlery and pots and pans give way to different and more creative gifts, such as honeymoon quotes.

If that’s the case, you will love the 5 different gifts to include in your wedding list that we made for you! Let’s check it out ?

5 Different gifts to include on your wedding list

As I said up there, more and more grooms already have mounted home, emerging an opening for unusual gifts and irreverent in the wedding list . As honeymoon quotas or donations to NGOs. With this in mind, we have five suggestions to include in the list, which you can see below.

Honeymoon Quotas

If your dream destination exceeds your budget, honeymoon rates are an elegant way to save money. Personalized websites such as offer a virtual gift list, in which guests can give experiences to the bride and groom, for example, romantic dinner, extreme sports, tours, etc.

The newlyweds thank you with posts from the photos of the trip, marking who provided the moment.

Professional decor

It is the ideal order if the lovebirds have the basic items in the house, but want to win a decoration or landscaping project. It is also a way to start the new phase with a home with their face. You can choose and quote the professional in advance or receive the amount through the gift list and then choose one.

Works of art

Orders for artistic pieces are a novelty, especially in the most luxurious weddings. But it is worth emphasizing that it is not a good tone for guests to consider a work of art, as it can cause conflicts between the couple, if only one of the two appreciates it.

The bride and groom must have common sense when choosing items that do not weigh in the budget of who will give the gift.

Donations to NGOs

At the wedding of British royalty, Prince William and Kate Middleton opted for donations to NGOs as gifts and served as inspiration for other couples around the world. It is something simple, elegant, and generous: the bride and groom choose causes that they support and ask for cash contributions to these entities.

Perhaps the guests have seen recurring donors?

Good deed

Following the same footprint of solidarity, an American couple innovated and suggested that guests do a good deed for a stranger and send emails, messages, or post with a personalized hashtag to notify them of the “gift.”

The goal is for the big day to spread happiness to loved ones and others. Hopefully fashion will get here!

How to reduce data usage in Chrome?

With the passage of time and as we use the web browser more and more, we notice that in the short or long term the browser becomes somewhat slow, that is, it no longer responds as quickly as it used to perform when we had just installed it in our computer.

This is due to several factors, such as cache memory, bulky bookmarks, search history and others, but it is also directly related to the add-ons that we have downloaded and installed, for example in the case of extensions for Chrome.

It is very true that when we use the Google browser, in most cases the plugins and extensions available for Chrome allow us to access a notable improvement in our experience in using the browser, so we are always adding add-ons that they offer us a variety of additional features, with which we can do much more with the browser.

However, we have to bear in mind that every time we add a new extension to Chrome, we decrease the performance of the browser, since ultimately the more features are added, the more load we generate for the browser to work. Therefore, it is not surprising that Chrome becomes somewhat slow.

Well, fortunately today we can remedy this situation thanks to a new official Google plugin for Chrome, which basically allows us to save on the processes frequently carried out by the browser and the extensions that we have installed, with which we can reduce almost by 50 percent data usage in Chrome.

Step by step reduce data usage in Chrome

Step 1: The first thing we will do is run the Chrome browser, and then click on the menu icon, which is located in the upper right corner of the window, and once there we click on “More tools”, and then on “Extensions”.

Step 2: Once we are in extensions we look for the add-on called “Data Saver”, which we can find at this link .

Step 3: Now we just have to click on the “Add to Chrome” button, and then in the box that appears we confirm the installation of the plugin.

Step 4: We will see that a new blue icon has been added to the toolbar, in the area dedicated to access to extensions. We click on it to be able to check the amount of data we are using, as well as to disable it whenever we want.

In this way, this new extension will automatically allow us to reduce the use of data in the browser by 50 percent, so at the same time we will be obtaining better performance from Chrome.

It is important to mention that although the plugin is currently in the development stage, that is to say that the version is beta, the truth is that in a short time we will be able to take advantage of the definitive and complete complement, with greater functionalities.
