What do you give to the person who has everything? Unfortunately for many of us, we’re likely to give a present to someone they may already have this upcoming holiday season. Not to worry: we have some excellent suggestions for unique gifts that they won’t see coming!
Read on for our ideas for quirky, elegant, and different gifts that suit just about every personality.
1) A Unique Whiskey Decanter
The Hamlet Gold Decanter By Rony Plesl For Ruckl is our choice for a different yet impeccably stylish decanter for your table. Inspired by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the minimalist gold skull invokes the scene of poor old Yorick, a man of infinite jest. It’s a little cheeky and a little cultured, and we absolutely love that.
It’s made to last with lead-free glass by a special Czech designer, so it’s just about as unique as you can get.
2) A Different Craft Kit Anyone Can Make
Is your gift recipient a crafty sort who loves trying new things? Then if they haven’t tried their hand at quilting, these precut holiday quilt kits are simply perfect.
Quilting isn’t daunting at all when you have a kit with all the pieces cut and coordinated for you. All you have to do is sit down and sew them together according to a pattern, and you’ll have a gorgeous quilt in no time. You don’t have to have a lot of time, skill, or artistic talent to craft one of these beautiful kits!
3) Personalized Holiday Decorations
What’s more unique than something that’s been customized to perfectly suit your giftee? These personalized holiday decorations are a great way to show your friends and loved ones that you’ve put thought and effort into your gift.
Going the extra mile and taking the time to personalize a Christmas ornament, wall plaque, or other rustic decor makes for a special gift. Customization services are surprisingly inexpensive, too!
4) Custom Art Framing
Next on our list is another customizable treat! Show your loved one some personalized thoughtfulness with custom fine art framing. Whether or not you already have the artwork on hand, purchasing custom frames is a great way to complement their interior and add a personal touch. Custom framing is a somewhat indulgent purchase that most people might not think to get for themselves, so it’s especially appreciated when given as a holiday gift.
5) A Niche Etsy Craft Based On Their Obscure Hobby or Favorite Media
If you didn’t know already, you can find a talented craftsman on Etsy who can make just about everything. From Star Trek t-shirts to crocheted Animal Crossing characters, you’re sure to find something made with love.
If you don’t find your giftee’s specific interest on Etsy, you can always commission an artist to make a gift that suits your niche. Give them ideas and a suitable amount of compensation and they can make something that is truly one-of-a-kind. Just make sure you give them enough time to create their art and ship it before the holidays!
6) A Tea of the Month Subscription
A subscription is the gift that keeps on giving, and a tea subscription is an especially unique choice! If you visit the sites of tea connoisseurs like Silver Tips Tea, you can gift an enticing Tea of the Month package to any recipient of your choice. This tea isn’t necessarily random: you can choose herbal teas, variety teas, tranquil teas, and more to suit your recipient’s tastes. The subscription is handpicked by experts and consists of only fresh, ethically-sourced tea from around the world.
7) Personalized Pushpin World Map for Travelers
Know a couple of avid travelers? Then this elegant and customizable world map is perfect for them. This map is customized with two names and a date, so couples can track everywhere they’ve been in the world together. It has a corkboard backing to be customized with push pins, so the couple can update their adventures throughout their lifetime.
8) Maybe The Best Gift Isn’t Technically A “Gift”
If your recipient seems like they have everything, then maybe material goods aren’t the right choice for them — and that’s fine! Give them the gift of your time and effort with a voucher for an upcoming experience or day out.
Here are some ideas:
- Tickets to an escape room.
- A gift card to a pottery or art studio where you can craft together.
- Tickets to an amusement park.
- Tickets to a concert or festival.
- A gift card for a restaurant that you can have a date or outing at.
- A handmade voucher for a day out at a place of their choosing.
- A handmade voucher for a night in with dinner, drinks, movies, and quality time together.
We hope you’ve found at least a smidgen of inspiration in this list of ideas. Now get out there and make your holiday season stress-free and fun!
