In this modern world of technology of ours it’s not at all surprising that we consider giving our parents an iPad for their birthday. This is especially true as they hit their sixtieth or seventieth birthday as it’s a pretty big milestone and we generally want to go that extra mile by getting something extra special. So, why shouldn’t we get them an iPad?  After all, it’s the latest in technology, it allows them access to the World Wide Web opening up so many social sites to them like FaceBook and Twitter. Of course being limited to only 140 characters on Twitter may be a bit of a challenge for some of the old folk.  :tongue:

Another great positive for the iPad is that it’s made by Apple and everybody knows how good Apples are. I’m sure you’ve heard more than once from the old folks how an apple a day keeps the doctor away, right?  :crazy:

Before I list pros and cons on getting your parents or even grandparents and iPad2 I want you to watch the following video. Read the rest of this entry

How To Buy The Perfect Gift

What Gift To Buy?

If you want to know how to buy the perfect gift for someone there are a few things you should keep in mind. As the Gifts Guru I am going to outline the most important things you should consider when deciding what gift to buy for your brother, sister, mother, father, wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend or even for your boss. Did I get them all. Shit, even if I didn’t I’m sure you got the idea.  ;)

Don’t worry, as this is going to be an important and integral post for buying the right gift I’ll be linking to it in the side bar. This way you will be able to find it easily whenever you drop in to get an idea on how to choose the best gift. It doesn’t matter what the occasion, whether it’s a birthday, christening a special occasion or just something to say I love you. Something else to consider is I’m using a blogging platform which means you’ll be able to interact not just with myself but with the whole gift giving community. But enough of the waffling, lets get to those important tips on how to buy the perfect gift.

Tips On How To Buy The Perfect Gift

  • Shop For Them And Not For Yourself: The biggest mistake people make when buying gifts is they tend to choose something that they personally like with the assumption that the person they’re buying the gift for will like it as well. While you may hit it lucky on the rare occasion you’ll usually strike out using this technique. If you’re prone to this type of gift giving read the next tip very carefully.

There are many gifts that you could buy from the cheapest mundane one to the most outrageously expensive one. For the   Gifts Guru first post I thought I would write about what I think is the most outrageously expensive gift that I have ever come across. This is something that ladies would purchase for their loved one or something that a bloke would buy for himself just because he’s got the cash to burn and no-one else ever would.

I’m talking about a teeny weeny small bottle of perfume by Clive Christian Imperial Majesty perfume. So, tell me guys, how much would you expect to pay for a 16.9 oz bottle of exquisite perfume? A hundred bucks? Two hundred bucks perhaps? Try $435,000! Unbelievable isn’t it? Sure it comes in a hand crafted Bacarrat crystal bottle, complete with a 5 carat brilliantly cut diamond, but for when you pay for that sort of money for perfume you would expect the best wouldn’t you? Shit, I could think of two things that I would insist should be part of the diamond encrusted crystal package.

  1. It would come with a money back guarantee so if said women do not swoon you would get your money back.
  2. The Lynx effect. You know, like the commercial where women swoon at your feet. You know, sort of like the effect on the woman in the following Lynx commercial. Read the rest of this entry
