What to Give Your Guy for Valentine's Day

Women often make mistakes when shopping for their boyfriends and husbands by thinking they will love a romantic gift. The truth is men are much more practical than you think. With Valentine's Day coming soon and birthdays always on the horizon here are some Gift Ideas for Men you can turn to when you need a gift for your guy.
  1. Food – Make it hardy such as Meat Cheese Basket loaded with contents such as smoked beef summer sausage, beef salami, wild Alaskan smoked salmon and Wisconsin cheddar cheese blocks. 
  2. Sweets – Forget that box of fine chocolates. Truffles are not their style. Instead, consider a Giant Fortune Cookie with your personal romantic fortune inside. Choose from all kinds of Fortune Cookie styles with icing and themed candy decorations. Chocolate Dipped Oreos are another favorite. And we have a variety that looks like golf balls sitting on a golf green. 
  3. Tools and Gadgets – Most guys like to carry a small knife in their pocket and a three in one tool in their car. Make sure the men in your life have the tools they need with style. Give your man a monogrammed tool to remind them of you every time they have an opportunity to use it.
  4. Sports Team Gear – Does your man follow a favorite sports team? Does he watch every NFL game on his wide screen or track to the baseball stadium to watch his team play? Does he like the clash of the players on ice displayed in a hockey match? If so give him team memorabilia to celebrate his team. All of these sports gifts feature a team logo along with your name and other personalization. Here are just a few examples:

      NFL Framed Locker Room Prints
      NHL Locker Room Prints
      MLB Club House Prints
      NFL Framed Pub Sign Prints
      NFL Framed Locker Room Wrapped Canvas
      NFL Framed Stadium Prints
      MLB Framed Stadium Prints
      NFL Stadium Wrapped Canvas
      NFL Shot Glasses
      NFL Spatula with Bottle Opener
      NFL Personalized Dog Tags
      NFL Beer Mug
      NFL Hot and Cold Tumbler
      NFL Zippo Lighter
      College Framed Stadium Print

  5. Initialed Money Clip and Monogrammed Wallets – With all of the fancy electronics these days, consider giving your man a practical item such as a Personalized Money Clip or Wallet. You can even choose an RFID Blocking Wallet in a variety of personalized styles. 
  6. Mancave Gear – Every guy wants a place to kick back and relax and a man-style retreat more than fills the bill. Help him decorate with Man-cave themed wall art and home bar gear. Choose from Pub Signs, Personalized Flasks, Growler Sets, Personalized Beer Bottle Opener  Catchers Signs, Whiskey Barrels, Wooden Beer Caddies and more. 
  7. Humidors and Lighters – Does your man like to relax with a fine cigar? Then make sure that his selection remains fresh with a Personalized Cigar Humidor. And while you are at it make sure he always has a lite with Monogrammed Zippo Lighter
  8. Hobby Related Gifts – Guys love their hobbies and toys so when a gift-giving opportunity arises you can always find a gift relating to their hobby or interest. So consider giving them golf clubs, a Personalized Executive Putter Set or even Gold Dipped Golf Balls and Tees. Hunters are sure to enjoy a Personalized Ammunition Box or a Camouflage Flask
  9. Dad Themed Gifts – These gifts may seem a little a hokey. Still, all dads cherish the gifts made by their children. Even better you can insert a photo of his children in a Father Themed Picture Frame. What about an Apron featuring the names of his children and their birth dates? There are even # 1 Dad Cufflinks and Ties! And of course the old standby a Top Dad Coffee Mug
Growlers Sets Make Great Additions to a Man Cave Bar

Avoid Embarrassing Gifts

Be sure to avoid sending a prissy gift to a public location that might embarrass your guy. While a romantic Sexy Gift Basket filled with massage oils and other tempting delights might make for a fun evening, it would be embarrassing for your husband to open the package at his desk in a cubicle office.  So for example, sending a Balloon Bouquet with a giant Teddy Bear to a deployed Marine Seal might cause the other seals to hassle your guy.
Make It Personal for Your Guy with Personalized Gifts!

So as you plan for Valentine's Day for your husband or Birthday Gift for your boy friend keep in mind that guys prefer the practical and functional over the frufoo anytime. Just follow these suggestions in this article and others and your guy is sure to enjoy any gift you select.

Are their any Drawbacks to using PayPal Express Checkout?
While we have discussed the many benefits of using Paypal Express Checkout there are some limitations to using it as your checkout method. Here are just a few:

Must use email address PayPal has on file.

Sometimes we have customers who send us communication using another email address. They expect that we will use their new email address. Unfortunately the original email address is locked by PayPal. Once an order is received merchants can not make changes in the email address, the billing address or shipping addresses.

Shipping address changes are difficult.

If a customer has a locked shipping address in their PayPal account and then enter a different ship-to address in the shopping site order record during checkout, PayPal will revert back to the locked ship-to address in your PayPal record. So you think, no big deal, just change to correct address! If the customer catches the discrepancy, they can request that we make a correction to the shipping address in our order records.

Unfortunately, this is something that we can not do because the PayPal technology locks the Order Details. So if you make a change to the shipping address, shipping labels and tracking emails has to be handled and created manually. While most sites can and will do make this manual change, as you might imagine it slows the process down and dramatically increases the chances that an error might be made.

"Many shipping errors result from a
PayPal locked shipping address."

Even more serious in other cases, customers place their order assuming the shipping address they entered was received by the merchant. Then they forget to check their order confirmation email. The gift is delivered to the locked ship-to address provided by PayPal instead of the one the customer thought they provided. Once the package is delivered, the merchant then receives calls regarding a delivery to the wrong location. This occurrence is a big error in terms of the time, hassle and additional costs required by both parties to correct.

PayPal contact information may be outdated. 

Customers may have PayPal account information that is outdated so the customer phone number and email addresses are no longer accurate or reviewed. So if there is an order related question the retail merchant cannot call or reach the customer to get the issue resolved. So if you plan to use PayPal Express Checkout, please make sure to keep your PayPal account details current.


PayPal Express Checkout Makes Shopping on Multiple Websites A Breeze
Even with a few drawbacks, shopping and checking out with PayPal Express Checkout remains convenient. With PayPal Express Checkout, customers can complete purchases in just a few steps. With their billing and shipping addresses along with payment details stored in their PayPal account, shoppers can conclude transactions quickly since they do not have to re-enter this information each time they shop.

PayPal Express Checkout also gives your shoppers a simplified checkout experience and lets them use their PayPal balance, bank account, or credit card to pay without sharing or entering any sensitive information on a retail website. Further, if there is an issue with your order, PayPal provides a method for rectifying the matter between the merchant and the customer. As you can see Paypal Express Checkout provides customer both convenience and security.

For retailers, it makes it easy to carry out business worldwide with your online store, wholesale site or business to business portal. Smaller companies can avoid the need for a traditional credit card merchant account since customers can still use their credit cards through their PayPal account.

Say Thank You with Client Appreciation Corporate Gifts

by Guest Blogger Rachel Stinson

Chocolate Gifts
Corporate gifts are meant for employees, clients or a business office staff. They must be selected carefully having in mind the receiver. The gift should be of benefit to the receiver. Since the presents are given on behalf of the organization they must convey the message or theme of the company. Business gifts must not distort the brand or the image of a shopping site such as Sukar.

The customary period to present business gifts is during the Holidays. It is also effective to send gifts after closing huge business transactions and successful deals. Client gifts make perfect "appreciation" gestures. In order to determine the perfect corporate gift for customer and clients, it is always a good plan to do some useful research beforehand, to ensure maximum benefits from your item. Below are Five Perfect Corporate Gift Ideas:

Food Items and Gift Baskets

Honor Your Bridesmaids and Groomsmen with Personalized Wedding Attendant Gifts

Your bridesmaids and groomsmen will play an important role in your wedding day. Your bridal party will be on the “stage” as a part of your big day. And they'll help to ensure that both the wedding ceremony and reception go off without a hitch. Of course you want to show all of your wedding attendants that they're appreciated with a thoughtful gift.

If you really want to go the extra mile, consider giving them a personalized wedding attendant gift. These special gifts can make a big impression and can be the perfect keepsake for a major event like weddings and anniversaries.

Here are a few of the reasons that personalized wedding attendant gifts make so much sense.

1. Show Your Wedding Attendants That You Really Care with Personalized Gifts

When you're giving someone a gift, you're not just tossing a present their way. You're showing a person that you love and appreciate them. That's why it's important to put a lot of extra thought into the gifts you give.
Reward Your Wedding Attendants with Personalized Gifts

When you give you an attendant a gift that was created just for them, your bridesmaid or groomsmen will know how special they are to you. Take personalization a step further and select a gift related to their favorite hobby or interest. For groomsmen consider this hobby and sports pub sign collection which features over 45 different themes from which to select. For bridesmaids give them a birthstone gold trimmed rose for the month of their birth with their name personalized on a petal.

When your attendants open a thoughtful present personalized just for them they will know that you appreciate everything they have done for you and will be grateful to have a friend like you in their life. And the gift will be cherished for years to come.

2. Personalized Gifts Make Wonderful Keepsakes

One of the biggest problems associated with buying presents for adults is finding something that they don't already have. After all, most adults have the money to pick up a treat for themselves every now and then so it great when you can give them a present to remind them of friendship.

When you select personalized gifts, shopping for the person who has everything won't be an issue. The gifts that you give will be unique to that person and they will not be able to find such a keepsake anywhere else.

3. Personalized Gifts Make Great Photo Ops and Mementos

Personalized wedding attendant gifts can make for the perfect photo opportunity in several ways. Be sure to have your wedding photographer snapping shots of your attendants as they open their gifts at the bridesmaid luncheon, bachelor party or rehearsal dinner. And have your photographer take both posed and candid photographs with your wedding attendants on your big day and throughout the festivities.

After the wedding send your wedding attendants a personalized picture frame featuring the their name and the date of the wedding with a great candid photo of the recipient inside the frame.

As you can see, there are plenty of great reasons to give out personalized wedding attendant gifts. In addition to your bridesmaids and groomsmen be sure to remember every one who helped including the flower girl, ring bearer, junior bridesmaid, servers, ushers and mothers and fathers of the bride and groom. Try to find gifts that are as unique and special as the wedding attendants you've chosen. Customization adds a special touch to presents for wedding party members.

Finding The Perfect Father's Day Gift

Father's Day is a holiday celebration providing you the opportunity to honor the special men in your life, including your own father or the father of your children. Although most men will accept the cliche coffee mug or tie with a smile, wouldn't you like to do something extraordinary instead? You can tailor your presents for each recipient and their personal pleasures to ensure that they feel the thought and love put into your gift.

Hobby Related Gifts Make Dad Happy

Cigar Humidors
Personalized Hobby Related Humidors
Do you have a cigar lover on your list? If so, why not give him a hobby-related Father's Day gift? For instance, what about a personalized cigar box humidor? With multiple selections covering interests from fishing and hunting to celebrating Irish heritage, you are certain to find a humidor that will look fabulous in his Man Cave. A travel humidor or an attractive Zippo lighter, which is essential to proper cigar lighting, are additional choices for your cigar lover.

Dad's Man Cave

In fact, giving him a decorative or functional item for his Man Cave is one way to show your understanding of his need for "guy time." You could buy him a great personalized sign designed to match the theme of his area. For instance, you could choose a pub or tavern sign, one advertising his favorite sport or a street sign with his name on it. Specific professional teams or humorous signs are also great choices.

Theme Related Gift Baskets Are Ideal Father's Day Gifts

If your man enjoys the outdoors and getting lots of things, why not purchase a great gift basket that will fulfill both pleasures. You could get a set related to grilling, with a variety of flavoring rubs and marinades. On the other hand, he may prefer a basket celebrating his love of golf or a great functional dartboard with some darts and delicious cheeses that will complement his favorite beer selection.
Personalized Cufflinks

Monogram Cufflinks

Men who must wear suits each day have to wear cufflinks as part of the outfit. In addition to ties being a way for them to express their personality, cufflinks are as well. You can purchase a set or two of attractive and interesting cufflinks that reflect his style. Classy monogrammed solid metal pieces are suitable for anyone or you might choose a set of compasses for the traveler in your life. A set of aces or pair of dice will be appreciated by the gambling aficionado, while those with a playful side will enjoy a skull and crossbones, smiley face or even lips with a tongue sticking out.

Personalize A Gift for Dad

Your special man might also want a personalized gadget or keychain as a Father's Day gift. A silver plated USB drive on a keychain is perfect for the man who needs to save and transfer data regularly and a credit card styled bottle opener can easily slide into any man's wallet for easy access when they are ready to pop a cold one. Another option is to give him a multi-function tool or army knife. The tools on these can prove quite useful in a pinch!

Don't Break the Budget - Dad Gifts Under $50

If you have a limited budget, fear not. You can find many fun ideas for less than $50. A cookie bouquet is a tasty idea for someone with a sweet tooth and a personalized bamboo pen set shows an appreciation for fine quality combined with respect for the planet by using this easily renewed wood resource. A jelly bean machine, attractive flask or leather valet tray may even be the right gift choice for you.

When letting your husband, father or another special man in your life know how much you appreciate him this Father's Day, take the opportunity to give him a unique Father's Day Gift he can enjoy thoroughly.
