Giving birthday gifts is, we think, as much fun as receiving them. The whole process of choosing an appropriate birthday gift, wrapping it, and seeing the delight on the birthday boy or birthday girl's face when they open their birthday gifts is something to be enjoyed, and certainly shouldn't be seen as hard work.
Of course, to some degree this depends on where you buy your birthday gifts. If you're going to trawl your way through dozens of dull websites selling the same old boring birthday gifts that you've seen (and dismissed) dozens of times, then yes - you may find the birthday gift selection process a bit of a drag.
But at ShinyShack, we make choosing birthday gifts, birthday party accessories, gift wrap and greetings cards something to enjoy, not something to bore the pants off you. We make a point of stocking birthday gifts that are fun, and a bit different; the sort of birthday gifts that you'd like to receive yourself.
We don't believe in selling boring birthday gifts. Let's face it; nobody wants to receive a birthday gift that's dull. Imagine the disappointment of ripping open the wrapping paper, just to find a dull birthday gift inside. That's why we stock such a great selection of unusual gifts, which are ideal as birthday gifts for just about anybody.
For example, we stock a great selection of gifts that would make ideal birthday gifts for women. If you're shopping for birthday gifts for her, try browsing our bath and body collection, where you'll find a great selection of unusual bathtime products, fun shower caps and delicious soaps that smell good enough to eat. These all make lovely birthday gifts for women; a little bit girlie, perhaps, but not at all predictable.
You'll also find excellent birthday gifts for her in our personal style category. Our bags and jewellery are very popular as birthday gifts for women, and they also make great gift ideas for other occasions like Mother's Day and Christmas.
Not that we're suggesting, of course, that all women want to receive girlie birthday gifts. Everyone is different, so we make sure we keep our store stocked to the brim with birthday gifts to suit all sorts of tastes. Take our retro gifts category, for example. It's packed with birthday gifts that'll take thirty-somethings back to their childhood. And our outdoor fun category is full of weird and wonderful birthday gifts that are ideal for celebrating summer birthdays.
We don't just stock birthday gifts for her, of course. We also sell a huge range of birthday gifts for men of all ages. Now, as we all know, most boys never really grow up; even very elderly gentlemen have a boyish streak lurking inside them, so you'll find there's lots of choice at ShinyShack when you're buying birthday gifts for him.
Many men enjoy tinkering with technology, so our gadgets and gizmos category is a great place to look for birthday gifts for him. We stock all sorts of gadgets and gizmos that are perfect as birthday gifts, from pocket gadgets for those who like to be prepared, to travel gadgets for people that like to be on the move. Buying birthday gifts for an aspiring Jeremy Clarkson? Look no further than our car gadgets category. Need birthday gifts for a music lover? You'll find plenty of birthday gift inspiration in our MP3 accessories section.
We can even help if you're looking for birthday gifts for kids. Our kids' toys category is full to the brim with science and nature toys, build and grow projects and unusual birthday gifts like putty and slime, which kids of all ages (including adults who've never really grown up) would love to be given as birthday gifts. No boring birthday gifts for kids at ShinyShack; just birthday gifts that children - and their parents, no doubt - will enjoy playing with.
When you're choosing birthday gifts for your friends and family, try putting yourself in their shoes for a moment. What sort of birthday gifts would you like to receive, if you were them? Are they interested in gardening? Look for birthday gifts in our garden stuff category. Have they recently moved house, or are they planning a new home? Start your birthday gifts search in our designer home department. Do they have a boring office job and could do with a bit of distraction from time to time? Buy their birthday gifts from our executive toys category. Are you buying birthday gifts for someone who has everything? Take a peep at the weird and wonderful birthday gifts in our unusual gifts category. Need birthday gifts for someone with a silly sense of humour? Look no further than our silly fun department; it's full of great birthday gifts that are slightly daft but lots of fun.
You can also buy birthday gifts for yourself, of course. If you've received money as a birthday gift and are looking for fun things to spend it on, pay a visit to ShinyShack and treat yourself to a few birthday gifts you've always wanted. And if you're throwing a birthday party, you can stock up on all your party supplies at ShinyShack too. Like unusual ice moulds from our cool stuff category, and a great selection of novelty birthday candles and balloons in our birthday gifts section.
