With 26th March marking Mother’s Day, Daylight Saving Time and the official beginning of British Summer Time this year, it’s important to remember to ‘Spring forward’ this weekend, with your watches and clocks changing to an hour ahead! I know what you’re thinking, and yes, unfortunately this means we get one less hour in bed; however we then gain one extra hour of daylight!
Do you know anyone who struggles with their timekeeping? Engraved watches or something more traditional such as an engraved pocket watch, make for perfect gift ideas. Wall clocks are an essential feature in the home too; from making sure you leave in good time to get to work, to timing how long your dinner will take in the oven!
If you’re wondering what Daylight Saving means for us, let me run you through a quick guide:Read More

Been invited to a wedding this year?
Stuck for ideas as to what to gift to the newlyweds?
With wedding season fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about what to gift the happy couple on their wedding day. It’s no surprise most of us get stuck when it comes to buying wedding presents, and whilst it’s perfectly acceptable to gift some money or a gift card, it’s never as special as gifting something truly personal –after all a personal touch is priceless.
A wedding gift should not be thought of as payment for a wedding invitation or as compensation for all the money spent on the big day, but rather a way to express your appreciation for the couple and to part your best wishes to the bride and groom. Why not gift a present from the heart? Nothing will say it better than a thoughtful personalised wedding gift! Giving a memorable wedding keepsake will keep the couples memories treasured for a lifetime. We thought we’d give you a few ideas on some great gifts that will keep on giving!Read More

I found this slightly amusing joke related to engagements and smiled because it was a little different to the traditional method of proposing:
- Man gets down on one knee and says, ‘Will you marry me?'
- Lady replies, ‘Yes!’
Whilst this is the conventional way to propose in many western countries and a tradition that still works for many people in the 21st Century, you might like to mix things up a bit and go for a more original or out of the ordinary idea when it comes to asking someone to marry you. Whilst the manner in which you propose might not hinge on your other half saying yes/no, the way in which you proposed will definitely come out at some point in the future and so it might just be worth making it that little bit more special, simply for the narrative factor.
Getting down on one knee is one way of asking but if you’re looking for unique ways to pop the question, then our list of 8 Awesome Engagement Gifts which double up as proposal gifts might help you out.Read More

It's a well known fact that mothers are awesome, which can make it a little tricky to find them the perfect gift when it comes to those regular gift giving occasions throughout the year, such as Mother’s Day, Christmas and her birthday. That’s okay though, GiftsOnline4U is here to help with some gift ideas that will really surprise your mum when you next need some inspiration…
When you were younger, your mum probably got really excited when you came home with an odd looking pillow case that you had made in textiles at the end of term, or when you baked her some rock hard heart shaped cookies at primary school before the Easter holidays as personalised Mother’s Day gifts. Although they may not have been the most expensive or most well-presented of gifts, your mum would have loved them and embraced the presents, because you had put your heart and soul into making them.Read More

The fountain of all knowledge, my good friend, Google, advises that a superhuman is "having or showing exceptional ability or powers".
For me, having exceptional ability or powers is a case of doing something (or many things) that a 'typical' person may not be able to do. I class myself and many people I know as typical people: We have a 9am-5pm job, eat three meals a day, cook and clean (when we have to), go to the gym, spend time with friends and family and then sleep for a minimum of eight hours since our 'jam-packed' schedule is more than enough to tire us out. I believe many other women and men out there fit into the same 'typical person' category as me.Read More

Have you ever received champagne as a gift? I get so many champagne bottles as gifts throughout the year – generally, though these are cheap, non-branded bottles from the supermarket (my friends are not particularly original and rather thrifty when it comes to gift giving, obviously!). Recently however, for my 30th birthday gift, my friends went a bit crazy and I received a couple of bottles of personalised champagne, including a bottle of engraved champagne and a bottle with a cute personalised label that said Happy 30th Birthday, which I thought was rather a special idea and something worth keeping.Read More

The well-known adaptation of the Disney film, Beauty and The Beast starring Emma Watson is due to premiere in the UK on March 17th 2017.

The 89th Academy Awards will be taking place on Sunday 26th February 2017 and will certainly be an event full of glamour, glitz and champagne with celebrities, directors and film crews waiting eagerly to see if they have won an award for their hard work over the last twelve months.
Some of these talented people will win an award and some of them will, with regret, lose. Nonetheless, in real terms, there may not be any losers in 2017 if last year’s Academy Awards event is anything to go by. That is because in 2016, all nominees were lucky enough to take away an Oscars goody bag with gifts worth over a whopping £186,000 (Harpers Bazaar, Feb 2016). The unofficial swag bag included among other fantastically generous presents, personalised chocolate and personalised vodka, as well as a wallet, lip salve, personalised jewellery and holidays, for example. Not bad, right?Read More

I seriously find it difficult to find fabulous gifts for friends and family when it comes to gift giving.
