Hot Gifts that are Out of the Box Review with images

AdvantagesA site full of quirky gift ideas

DisadvantagesYou'll find yourself browsing the site even when you don't need to

"Buying presents can be a demanding task when the recipient has everything. A well thought out gift is always appreciated, as this shows that you care. However, when you have run out of ideas what do you do? All too often you can be shopping for an important birthday or _Christmas_ gift with only a few days until the occasion and you are still struggling. Having scoured every shop on the high street and browsing through all the usual websites for inspiration, ..." Read review

Flaming parcels from firebox.com! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat service, iteresting products.

DisadvantagesA little pricey sometimes.

"...Dad loves gadgets. This makes Firebox.com a fantastic website for me. I can do most of my gift shopping all round from the one website. I got my Dad a rubber clock, careful how you say that, with a colour changing display for father's day. A really cool thing about Firebox is that if you ask them nicely, there is request button on their website, they will send you a catalogue and on the back of the catalogue there is gift voucher; this voucher could ..."

Hot Stuff

Advantagesgood service and great products

Disadvantagesyou may start spending that hard earned cash!

"...a site for “boys toys” firebox.com hit our screens four years ago and since then has grown into something of a phenomena. Don’t be put off though, as a female reading this, as this site may not only solve all of your male present problems (yes, problems with your present men and their presents can be solved here) but you may also come across that "must have" item that you have always dreamed of owning. The site is very easy to ..." Read review

Your Christmas list sorted! Review with images

AdvantagesFast delivery, unique gift ideas

Disadvantagesfood gifts can be a bit pricey

"I have always found it extremely difficult to find original Christmas and birthday gifts in high street stores, especially for men. That was until I discovered Firebox. This is a well-designed website that caters for all of your gift finding needs, even for those annoying people who seem to have everything. When you first enter the website, you will notice the rather hectic arrangement of the categories. This takes a little bit of getting used ..." Read review

Cracking Site

Advantagesreally efficient service, wide range of cool products

Disadvantagescould be cheaper at times

"i first discovered firebox.com after a friend recommended the "Power Ball" (yesterday's opinion) to me. I didn't really know what to expect, as I know most sites are pretty run-of-the-mill, average stuff. So I researched into my Power Ball, and at the time I couldn't find it significantly cheaper anywhere else, so I thought I would use firebox.com. Well, to my delight, not only did I find the Power Ball quickly and easily, I also found a whole ..." Read review

Where else can you buy . . .

AdvantagesSaves walking to the Gadget Shop

DisadvantagesYou could spend a fortune

"...for 5.95? Where else but Firebox.com . . . Firebox started life in 1998 as Hotbox.com, but had to swiftly re-think the name due to the amount of hits from porn-seeking surfers! Its founders - University friends Michael Smith and Tom Boardman - invented the above-mentioned Chess Set, and a successful re-location from an attic in Cardiff to the big city of London in 1999 launched this company onto the world stage. 'Gadgets, Games, Boys Toys' ..." Read review

Firebox, Hot or Not

Advantagessee text

Disadvantagessee text

"Firebox.com is keen to tout itself as "Where men buy stuff". In fact, it's a well known haunt of anybody who enjoys gadgets and gimmicky toys. The site has been around since 1998 and in that time it's changed its name from Hotbox to Firebox. In simple terms it's a shop front, but there is a lot on the site that makes it worth browsing even if you're not intending to buy something outright. Due to the nature of the items sold, you're unlikely to ..." Read review

Firebox, it really rox!

AdvantagesStunning product range and great prices.

DisadvantagesEasy to start racking up the bill without realising.

"Awesome online store for the most original gifts and ideas around! There will be some dispute as to whether IWOOT (I Want One Of Those) is better and there was a time I would have agreed but that time has passed. Firebox has impressed me again and again with speed of delivery and quality of product. If I am ever stuck for a gift I find that all I need to do is head to Firebox and begin browsing. I have never been a big fan of the gift finder engines ..." Read review

"Firebox is a brilliant site where you can buy allsorts of weird and wonderful things! They range from useful gadgets and fun games, to things that you fall in love with the minute you see them and will not rest until that last stage at the checkout! I've bought so many things from the guys at firebox. Some times they have random, but brilliant, offers on that are too good to miss. On one occasion they had an offer on Perplex City cards. You could ..." Read review

Anyway... the site is really easy to navigate and eben lists the top 10 items so that it is really simple for us girlies to choose gifts that are man would love.

Free Gifts For All!

AdvantagesGood Range Of Gadgets

DisadvantagesPostage Is £3.95

"I recently purchased a DVD worth only £8 from CDWOW. Included with my order was a voucher for £5 for FireBox. I decided to have a look at the site to see if there was anything I could get for £5. I started looking at the company's range of products on offer. The bulk of the items are gadgets or toys. If you're stuck for an idea for a friends birthday Firebox is perfect for a gift. The items on sale range from 70's T-shirts such as Space Invaders ..." Read review

Advantagesgood fun, useful ideas

Disadvantageslimited range

"...the internet and specifically to firebox.com who claim to sell the stuff men want. If men want gadgets, gizmos and toys then I can't argue with this bit of advertising. Here you can select from the merchandise that frequents magazines such as FHM, QG and Maxim; computer games, indoor crossbows and drinking accesories etc. I selected some spring water ice cubes (honest) - described as the ultimate drinking partner for fine Scoth - they comprise of ..."
