There’s a lot of undue pressure on us during the holiday shopping season to provide our friends and loved ones with the best gifts possible. Not only that, it’s often difficult to even know where to start. To help you start off on the right foot, here are 5 unique gifts to give for Christmas:
1 – Customize Your Gifts
The most thoughtful gifts are often unique photo gifts that use pictures of you and the person you are creating the gift for. You can make anything from common things like photo mugs to really unusual things like blankets with pictures.
2 – Go Old School
You don’t only have to battle other shoppers in retail stores for whatever the hottest new items might be during Christmas time. If you know the person you’re shopping for well enough, you might be able to find something they’ve always wanted that isn’t even made before. For instance, perhaps there was a certain toy or collectible they wanted when they were younger that just never managed to materialize. Maybe they’d like a signed sports memorabilia that’s one of a kind. These kinds of gifts can easily be found online. Scour eBay and you should find something from the past that’s perfectly promising!
3 – Exclusive Gifts For The Home
Don’t forget about things you can get for the home that reflect the owner’s personality, like these unique shower curtains. Not only does the home get a face lift, but if you select the home furnishing correctly, it can show a lot of thoughtfulness on your part too!
4 – Gift Card Basket
Two of the most common default gift ideas to give in to when you have no idea what to give someone are gift cards and gift baskets. Why not combine the two? Arrange a gift basket the way you normally would, but fill it with an arrangement of gift cards with whatever amounts you can afford. You can avoid the dreaded trap of handing over only one specific gift card that the recipient isn’t as interested in this way, and the basket itself will seem a lot more generous than standard fare like snacks or perfumes.
5 – One Of A Kind Designs
No matter what pop culture brand one of your gift recipients might love, you can be sure to find plenty of completely original designs pertaining to it online. That includes clothing, jewelry, prints, and so on. The internet is a fantastic resource. Check sites like Red Bubble, Etsy, the Yetee, and Ript Apparel for fantastic examples.
6 – Baked Goods
For many people, it’s true that the way to their hearts is through their stomachs. For those with a sweet tooth in your life, they’re sure to adore you for taking the time to conjure up their favorite baked goods. The internet, again, is a wonderful place to find a whole world of recipes if you’re in need of a little help.
7 – Customized Electronics
For the electronic enthusiasts in your life, they’re sure to appreciate customized hardware that you can’t just go down to Best Buy and grab off of the shelf. Examples include video game consoles or computers that have been modified with larger hard drives or more compatibility than normal. Make sure to buy from reputable sources!
