Top Gift Ideas for Someone’s Special Day

Gift giving is sometimes tough, especially when you really want to buy the perfect gift for a loved one’s special day. Picking out a gift for someone you care about should be enjoyable and fun, not stressful. Opt for gifts that are personalized, one-of-a-kind, and meaningful. By making humorous references to happy experiences, inside jokes, and secret passions, you can show how much you care. Another option is to go with a new twist on traditional gifts, like a rich cheesecake or an elegant jeweled timepiece. Whether you’re shopping for birthday gifts for mom or birthday gifts for men in your life, such as a birthday gift for your dad, or husband or boyfriend, we’ve got you covered. We’ve compiled a list of gifts to make someone smile on their special day.


Personalized Photo Frame


Photos of loved ones bring instant joy. Picture frames are a great go-to present for any occasion because they are a classic, adaptable, and totally personalized option. They’re the perfect keepsake gift. The Personalized Square Shape Bamboo Wooden Photo Frame is a beautiful solid wood frame. Email or upload your picture to be crafted onto the photo frame. Another option to show your love is the Personalized Heart Shape Bamboo Wooden Photo Frame. While on the topic of personalized gifts, custom photo keychains and photo mugs also make excellent choices! Not only do personalized photos make a great birthday gift for mom or dad, but they're a great birthday gift for a boyfriend, girlfriend, best friend or grandparents.


Gourmet Birthday Cakes


You’ve heard the expression, the way to the heart is through the stomach. This applies to men and women. If you can’t personally deliver a birthday cake to your loved one, send them one of our special birthday cakes! A fresh, delicious, decadent gourmet cake makes an amazing gift they’re sure to enjoy.

A Bouquet of Flowers


Every culture has promoted the practice of sending flowers as a gift. It's understandable why a fresh bouquet of flowers has always been one of the most popular presents to offer over the years. The main motivation behind flower presents is to evoke a feeling. Giving flowers is the most exquisite way to express the strongest emotions, whether they are those of love, joy, compassion, gratitude, sympathy, romance, or apologies. What’s not to love about receiving a bouquet of gorgeous, fragrant fresh flowers on your birthday? Choose a gorgeous 12-stem cream rose bouquet for that special someone in your life or send a mixed bouquet of carnations, roses and lilies to your mother, sister, aunt, daughter, or grandmother. A stunning bouquet of unique purple roses is sure to bring birthday joy.


Flowers aren’t just for women. Stereotypes are a thing of the past. Men enjoy receiving flowers as well on their birthdays. Send your dad, husband, or boyfriend a Gerbera bouquet of colorful flowers to make their day bright.


Scented Candles


Candles are highly functional and aesthetically pleasing. Candles make the perfect gender-neutral gift. The only sense that has a direct relationship with memory and emotion is our sense of smell. Because they have the power to take us somewhere special, whether imagined or a memory recalled, scented candles make special and meaningful gifts. This Pair of Decorative Scented Candles features a stunning elegant pattern, making it a delight for the eyes and the nose. When you’re unsure of someone’s favorite scent, stick to the basics like vanilla and lavender.




Both men and women love receiving jewelry gifts on their special day. Jewelry makes people feel beautiful, important and desired. Even if you’re gifting it in a platonic way, jewelry is sure to make them happy when they wear it. Jewelry is something many people keep for a lifetime, so they’ll always have something to remember you by. If you are shopping for a girlfriend or wife and really want to make her birthday special this year, check out the Michael Kors Women Parker Rose Gold-Tone Watch.

Gift Baskets


If you’re really wanting to give a unique gift, we highly recommend sending a gift basket. The latest trend in gift-giving is gift baskets because they contain so many goodies! Instead of one gift, they’re getting multiple gifts and can even reuse the basket. We offer an array of gift baskets, making it easy to choose the ideal gift based on your loved one’s interests and likes. For someone who prefers to eat healthily even on their birthday,  we have a fresh fruit basket. Choose from 10-25 pieces of ripe, fresh, delicious fruit. Add a personal touch with your own message and free card. We also offer wine baskets and chocolate baskets in a variety of sizes and prices. Baskets are so great because they’re truly a gift for the entire family – not just the recipient. You can always pair gift baskets with another treat, like one of our signature cheesecakes.


Regardless of who you’re shopping for or what the occasion is, we’re guaranteed to have something they’ll love. We have tons of unique gifts, including cheesecakes, cakes, gourmet chocolates, wine baskets, fruit baskets, perfume, cologne, jewelry and so much more.
