A GiftGenius St. Patrick's Day gift guide: paying homage to drunken debauchery. From absinthe floss to a giant extremely large flask, these gifts are guaranteed to bring recipients the luck of the Irish.
If you are in search of a source that is platinum when it’s time to buy a special gift,
GiftGenius.com could make you an all-star gift-giver with a click of a mouse. Whether the situation calls for a present for him, for her, for the kids, for the family, or for business clients, looking here is a smart move for just about any occasion—like Valentine’s Day.
Ivanka Trump recently blogged about them on her Web site. Sure, her jewelry line is currently listed as an editor’s choice. But it gives you an idea of the quality of selections offered. If you are curious and don’t want to waste too many clicks, go the Web site’s “Gift Finder,” select the recipient for whom you are buying a present, choose the occasion, slide that price-range bar all the way to the right to $500 and above, click on “Find’ and pages of gift ideas pop up.
Tip: Nothing is perfect. Give it a few seconds to work its magical search, as it takes a moment for the gift selections to pop up. See for yourself. It’s worth the wait.
Coffee Stencils: If you've been searching for the best way to demand your boyfriend repay you from last Saturday's bar crawl, but you hate confrontation, here's how you can send him the message nicely. Just put one of these custom made coffee stencils in his coffee, sprinkle in some cinnamon or something, and watch as he is shocked by the appearance of a personalized message in a place where there usually isn't one. Either he'll have the money to you by the end of business day, or you should go ahead and invest in the stencil pictured.
Just in time for the holiday season, we’ve found a one-of-a-kind gifting site called GiftGenius.com. If you’re tired of giving the same old boring gift for the holidays, birthdays, or anniversaries, this is the site for you. Their gift selections are carefully picked and must meet certain requirements.
What kind of requirements? They have to be unique, “never would have thought of that” gifts. What’s really neat are their sophisticated search tools that allow you to narrow down by recipient, occasion, price, taste and style, even what kind of relationship you have with the recipient. Some examples of recipients: 9-5 Mom, Hard working Dad with a Frat Boy’s Soul, and Single Girl with Novels by her Bed. Their hilarious write-ups on each gift turn a once boring task into a fun one.
This holiday season, GiftGenius, based in SoHo, has come up with a fun way of capitalizing on the city we live for and love: The NYC Neighborhood Gift Guide. With gift suggestions grouped by type of recipient, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect gifts for every New Yorker in your life.
Looking for a gift for that gorgeous guy downtown? Check out GiftGenius’ recommendations for SOHOtdude. How about a book of photographs of Steve McQueen, the original hot dude?
Need something for that city Mom? Anything in GiftGenius’ Yup Town Mom category would be appreciated by even the most discerning mother. We particularly love the Chanel Luxury Slipcase. Not a bargain, but definitely luxurious.
Then there is the boy you love but who is always broke. The Presto Pizzazz Pizza Oven just may be the way to a broke boy’s heart.
We all know a woman who is a non-conformist and a little bit edgy. GiftGenius eliminates all the guesswork and stress of finding something for your nephew’s punk rocker girl friend. The Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe sounds about right.
Finally, there’s your dad. Or rather the Upper-Less-Side Dad. He’s still a frat boy at heart, but in grown up clothing. Well, sometimes. No doubt a Heineken and Krups beer tap would take him back a few years. In fact, any of the presents in this guide are sure to please the old jock.
If the New York “character” you need a gift for, by some chance, is not described in the NYC Neighborhood Gift Guide, GiftGenius can find the perfect gift according to their astrological sign. Now that’s ingenious.
If you're lacking in the idea department, this site has a fun search feature that lets you choose an occasion and recipient, then customize your list of gift ideas by adjusting "Attributes." Factor in how trendy, lighthearted or mainstream your recipient is and come up with tailor-made suggestions.
Giving a girl a gym membership may suggest that you think she’s fat, and giving her a gift certificate to the Dildo Hut may imply that you think she’ll never get laid. It’s possible that you meant neither of those things, but the fact that good intentions may come off as hurtful is what makes gift giving so stressful. Point is that gifting does not come naturally to man.
So, make it easy on yourself this holiday season and go to GiftGenius.com, the site that bridges the missing link between man and gift giving. It’s simple: Choose who you are shopping for, then GiftGenius presents you with the most foolproof and unique ideas out there. Instead of having the ones you love curse your name in the return line, have them praise it in the name of GiftGenius. [Read Full Article]

Alexander West on Gift Genius
“Your boyfriend has arrived to one too many nice events in a ratty old ironic T-shirt, so give him (and yourself) the gift of an Alexander West custom-tailored shirt. Each shirt is made with premium cottons, including Egyptian and Sea Island cotton, mother of pearl buttons, and hand-stitched monogramming. Just send his measurements, choose the style and color, and blammo: he’ll look dashing, and you can introduce him to your parents without being embarrassed by his “Honk if you’re going to run over me” T-shirt.”

Father’s Day is in just five days and I know this personalized jug of Tabasco Sauce will move my dad to tears—literally!

Today We're Loving...
Well gee, thanks Facebook! Now that you give us those daily reminders, forgetting someone's birthday is no longer a good excuse for not buying them a gift.
Fortunately, there's another Web site that can help us out of this mess you've gotten us into by helping to pick out all the extra goodies we're now obliged to send.
At Gift Genius, you can build up a profile of the gift-receiver by using sliders to place them somewhere on a spectrum across different characteristics: you can set their taste somewhere between "mainstream" and "unique"; their style between "trendy" and "classic"; their attitude between "serious" and "lighthearted".
Then the site will suggest gifts accordingly, which you can narrow down by price, with gifts from five bucks up to thousands of dollars. So you end up with the perfect gift for the right price.
So with the help of Gift Genius, you could find just the right thing for anyone on your friend list, from your old high school best friend to your grandmother.
Celebs are already catching on to the site, including Stacy London, Ivanka Trump (presumably hoping the site can answer the question, "What do you get the man who has everything?" in time for Father's Day), and Over Your Head's Eric Stromer.
If you’re stumped on what to get any of your bridal party members–because they already have everything or are just plain picky, look no further than Giftgenius.com. The ultimate online gift guide, the site has culled several editors and stylists to pull together some of the most unique presents in the market. The actual presents are combined with witty editorial to make buying a breeze.
Search by category (i.e. pets or women’s jewelry), recipient (boyfriend, 9-to-5 mother), or occasion (bridal shower, wedding, birthday). And as if that weren’t awesome enough, they have a gifting spotlight called “Trust Me, I’m Famous”, which features celebrities offering their own gifting guidelines and suggestions. Recent celebs to share their secrets include TLC’s What Not to Wear’s Stacy London as well as heiress and new jeweler Ivanka Trump. The site has now become my guru for all gift giving.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas: Consult a Genius
Ok, not a gift per say, and therefore why its at the end of this last minute Christmas gift list. But if you couldn't find anything that you thought was perfect for your sweetie, then perhaps GiftGenius can help. Every recipient, occasion and interest imaginable is listed here, along with "Trust Me, I'm Famous" suggestions (from those of us who have made it to some sort of who's who list) make this suggestion site a fantastic last minute gift finder. Move the sliders on the side of the page to further personalize your choices; I went from seeing a bacon of the month club, to a diamond plated foosball table, and then to a a travel package following Lawrence of Arabia's footsteps, just by slightly changing my options.
Valentine's Day gifts that are off the beaten path
Valentine’s Day grosses me out. All the red hearts, stuffed animals and waxy chocolate in the shape of Cupid … I’ve ignored Valentine’s Day for at least 10 years, until this morning when I found a website called giftgenius.com.
Some of the gifts it recommends for V-day: A membership to a Bacon-of-the-month club and a "Casablanca" collector’s edition box with the movie, a photo book and luggage tags. Bacon and Bogart -- now that’s my idea of romantic.
GiftGenius has a well-curated list of Valentine’s gift ideas that far surpass the typical Hallmark fare. Design your own lingerie or get the Lanvin bag you’ve been drooling over -- it's got a lot of good stuff and the funny illustrations and eclectic mix of something for everyone makes it fun to shop. Even for Valentine’s Day.
