DealDash Tips to Give a Birthday Surprise


How many people do you know that are having a birthday this year? Everyone! Here are some tips to score some birthday gift surprises on DealDash.

Do you like to give your friends and family birthday surprises? DealDash has just about anything that you need to get someone in your life a birthday surprise, from a 1-year-old to a 90-year-old. There’s something for everyone! Here are some tips for winning items to give as birthday surprises on DealDash.

Who Are You Giving a Gift to?

Before doing any bidding on DealDash, you’ll need to think about the person who’s birthday is coming up. As we discussed, there is something for everyone – but everyone wouldn’t want the same birthday surprise. So think about who you’re surprising. Are they a baby or toddler? A child or teenager? A young adult or middle-aged person? An elderly person? There could be some cross-over gifts, for sure, such as gift cards to restaurants, but for the most part, people from these different stages of life probably would appreciate different types of gifts.

Once you’ve determined the life stage of the person who you are giving a gift to, then select the item that you would like to win or BIN for their birthday surprise. There are quite a few different choices of items you can choose on DealDash. With that said, here are some of the items that you might want to consider when you’re searching for an item as a birthday surprise on DealDash.

  • Gift Cards – As I mentioned above, gift cards can be an excellent gift for just about anyone. For kids, there are gift cards to toy stores, bookstores, or big box-type stores that have kid items. For adults, there are restaurants, specialty stores, and hardware stores. Nothing says love like a gift card to purchase your very own surprise with!
  • Toys – Toys are a great present for the under-12 set, and DealDash has a varied selection to choose from. There are soft stuffed animals, fun night lights and lamps, rocking horses, and even bicycles.
  • Sports Equipment – For older kids and teens, sports equipment would make a wonderful birthday surprise. There is sports equipment that you can use yourself such as basketball hoops, and also signed sports memorabilia as well. Or why choose? Give a baseball bat to use and a signed baseball to keep.
  • Camping and Hiking Supplies – Outdoors equipment makes a great birthday surprise for older teens and young adults. Most of the people that I know in that age group love to go hiking, kayaking, and even geocaching. DealDash can provide all sorts of things such as hiking shoes, kayaks, and metal detectors.
  • Art and Home Decor – Any adult who has a place to call their own could use a piece of artwork or home decor. These items can be very expensive if you buy it in the store, but if you win it on DealDash it could make a very generous present.
  • Gardening Supplies – Summer is coming soon, and if you know someone who has a birthday in the Spring or Summer, then gardening supplies could be a great present to surprise them with. They’ll love it!

Choose an Auction Time

Once you’ve decided on a life stage and a present, then it’s time to choose an auction time. It’s a very rare item that only comes up once on DealDash – they typically offer the same item within a few days of each other, so more people have a chance to win the item.

Once you have decided exactly what you want, then you can do a search with the search bar to see the different days and times that this specific item is up for bid. Choose the best time for you to bid in the DealDash auction. You can just load up your BidBuddy and have him bid for you, or you can choose a time where you can control the bids. It’s up to you! Know that no matter if you win or end up doing a BIN (Buy It Now), the recipient is going to love their birthday present.

DealDash Party Planning Tips

DealDash party

Party planning can be fun, exhausting, expensive, and a daunting task, all in one. Let DealDash help you with some party planning tips.

Do you find party planning to be more fun or more stressful? Many people go through the “last minute” school of party planning and have felt the pressure of trying to show everyone a good time. Depending on the type of party you are planning, a little chaos might be a good thing! However, if a fancy dinner party is more your style, then chaotic fun probably isn’t on your agenda.


What do I mean by “pre-planning”? Here are the things that you should be thinking about before you really start your party planning.

  • Budget
  • Location
  • Guest list
  • Food/Drink
  • Decorations


How much are you willing to spend on this party? If you’re having this party for a special person such as a mother or grandmother, consider asking your other siblings or cousins to help you throw this party of offset some of the expense. If you’re doing this all on your own, then you should try to cut costs where you can.

You can help cut costs by bidding on DealDash. You can win things on DealDash that can help you throw your party such as kitchenware, decorations, and more.


Where will you be having this party? If it’s nice weather out, consider having it at a local park or picnic area. That way it will save you tons of time on clean-up. If that’s not an option you can use your home for a smaller party or rent out a room for a larger party. Your local VFW hall or church would be excellent places to start if you’re looking for an affordable party space.

Guest List

Who are you inviting to your party? If it’s a kid’s party be sure to either invite all of the classmates or less than half of the classmates. You wouldn’t want anyone to feel like they are the only person who wasn’t invited to the party! When it comes to inviting relatives to the party, be sure to make a list so you don’t forget Great Aunt Bertha.

Food and Drink

When it comes to refreshments, I say “Keep it simple”. If you’re ambitious and would like to make the food yourself, try using a slow cooker to make meatballs, lasagne, or mac & cheese. If you’re in the market for a new slow cooker be sure to check DealDash. DealDash often has slow cookers up for auction. If you’re not that ambitious, then just order pizzas and call it a day!


For an adult’s party, you probably won’t need a huge amount of decorations. Table cloths, flowers, and maybe some streamers are a few choices you might like. For a child’s party it’s better to go all out with balloons, centerpieces, and more!

DealDash Tips for Cooking Christmas Dinner

DealDash Tips Christmas Dinner

Christmas is in just a few days, so if you haven’t started your preparations for Christmas dinner you should hurry!

Have you decided what you are making for Christmas dinner? Some people have turkey, ham, roast, or goose – and other people say “Forget that!” and go out and eat Chinese food. Normally my family goes to celebrate Christmas with the extended family, but this year it’s just us, so I am thinking small this year. Here are some ideas from DealDash for making a delicious Christmas dinner.

If you’re having lots of people over to your house for Christmas dinner, you’re probably going to need a few appetizers. There are so many things that you can make that are delicious, but if you want to cut a few corners to save time you can get some very good frozen ones from the supermarket. The trick to making these frozen appetizers taste good is heating them up with an air fryer from DealDash! DealDash has a couple of different air fryers for you to choose from. These air fryers from DealDash heat up the food without oil, yet still make the food taste delightfully fried.

Another short-cut that you can make in your preparations without sacrificing taste is making frozen meatballs taste delicious in a slow cooker from DealDash. Simply take a bag of frozen meatballs, add 2 jars of your favorite sauce, some parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning and cook in the slow cooker on low for 4-6 hours. These meatballs will make your house smell wonderful, are super-easy, and taste great. You can even serve them in the slow cooker crock, and just provide toothpicks for your guests to pick out their own meatballs. DealDash has many different slow cookers in different brands and price points to choose from for your kitchen.

Lastly, another thing that is good for a group is soup! Soup is so easy to make, you can make a large volume at a time, and people can serve themselves as much or as little as they like from the stock pot. DealDash has a few different sets of pots and pans if you are lacking a stock pot. DealDash has great choices to pick from, and you will have your soup cooking in no time!

DealDash Tips to Plan Ahead

Christmas and New Year’s are approaching quickly, and it’s important to have your plans laid out and ready to implement. One of the biggest things that we think about during the holiday season is presents! Have you gotten your Christmas lists from your family yet? Have you done your research on the products? If you haven’t done that yet, you need to get moving. No matter what is on their lists, be sure that you check DealDash first.

DealDash has items in every category, from gift cards to toys to tools. Do a search on DealDash to see if there are any items that you can bid on and win as presents. While you’re browsing the auctions, perhaps you will spot the perfect gift for someone else on your list.

Other than presents, if you’re hosting the celebration you will need to think about food preparation as well. What’s on the menu? Will any of the guests attending be bringing any appetizers or desserts to share with the attendees? When you’re thinking of your menu plans, you also need to think about what small appliances are needed to prepare your dinner. Do you need a stand mixer? How about a toaster oven, an air fryer, or a coffee machine? All of these items are great to have in the kitchen, and you can get then all from DealDash as well. When you need a small appliance for the kitchen, check DealDash first.

Moving on to New Year’s Eve, will you be attending a party or other celebration? Have you found your perfect New Year’s Eve outfit? Maybe it’s time to get some new jewelry to go with your outfit.
