Selecting a domain extension an important element to your company's branding.  Certain extensions personify a better company image than others. Of course, the best globally recognized extension is .com, however, with its massive utilization, domain names are getting harder to register, without them being too long. If you can get .com for your business, I would grab it. If you cannot, then I would look at .org and .net next. There are others, but they get more specific to the type of business you are in.

Followup question:
So just to confirm, if I am selling gift products and want to make them available world wide I shouldn't worry about all the other extensions like .co.uk, .cn, .ie etc if I already have the .com extension?

I personally don't think you need to purchase the URL for every country you want for each address, I would just publish .com, it is globally recognized, and ‎will save you lots of time and dollars in your advertising and social media campaigns when you can just promote one URL universally.
