25 Unique Gifts to Consider This Christmas
Nobody wants to feel like they are stuck giving the same gift over and over again. Christmas is a time for fun and family and friends, and you want to show the people you love how much you care. It’s hard to find the right gift for everyone, but buying a gift card is too impersonal. Gift giving can be challenging.
Fortunately, with so much available online and so many world cultures at our digital fingertips, we can find any number of brilliant, unique gifts for the people in our lives.
You don’t have to deal with crowded stores or long lines. You can shop from home, confident that you are getting something different and fun for everyone on your list this year. Had enough of the typical gifts? Why not try on something new?
Have a loved one who loves an adventure? Here are some perfectly unique gifts for the traveler in your life.
If giving experiences is your goal, why not give the ultimate experience and gift concert tickets? Buy tickets for a favorite artist or a festival and you can count on a great reaction Christmas morning.
Every adventurer should have a GPS locator, especially if they travel down remote roads or hike long distances. They also wrap up nicely to become the perfect gift.
Know someone who loves to be active but lives in a small space? An inflatable kayak is a great gift for someone who would love to be on the water, living life, but can’t afford to store something larger. Inflatable kayaks travel in small vehicles as well.
Hand crank lantern
A great gift for a traveler or any family really. A hand crank lantern doesn’t require batteries or charging, making it perfect for the times your loved one is off the grid or simply in a power outage.
A true backpacker know that great gear weighs as little as possible. That’s why so many go without chairs or seats on the trail. Fortunately you can help get them off the ground with an ultra-lightweight backpacking chair.
Nobody can turn down a bit of comfort – especially when it’s warm and cozy in a cold part of the year.
Two piece tea set
For the tea drinker in your life, gift a small tea set – the pot to keep tea warm and the cup to drink it from, all in one set. You can find a pretty set, a sophisticated set, a clever set or just about any type of tea set you’d like to find these days.
They are a hot gift this year! Ugg slides are the real deal – a way to keep your feet nice and warm, but also easy to put on and wear with any outfit. Best of all, Ugg slides have a strap in the back to keep them on your feet so you can walk easily without shuffling.
Electric throw blanket
A warm blanket on a cold day is just the thing when you’re feeling like staying inside. Want to make the blanket even better? You should opt for a heated blanket. Plug it in, turn it on, and warm, comfortable heat is right there day or night.
Essential oil diffuser
Love the smells of the season? Enjoy the power of a calming scent? Essential oils can enrich your life in many ways, and if you know someone who loves the power of scent, gift them a beautiful new diffuser this holiday season.
Weighted blankets have become popular gifts for many reasons. The soothing sensation of being tucked in at night can last all night long with a weighted blanket. It’s like your bed is tucking you in and hugging you close all night long.
Gifts to Organize
We all know that January is when we really start cleaning out closets and digging through our clutter to try and organize our life. Why not get started just a bit earlier by gifting some great organizational items?
Who doesn’t love a bit of technology? Especially when the technology is unique and actually useful? A label maker doesn’t have to be expensive to be useful, and you will suddenly find so many different things to label in your home, your office, your closet, your car, your storage unit, and everywhere you turn.
Want to help someone make the most of their space? You can do exactly that with a large lazy Susan. These turntables can be purchased in beautiful finishes to be useful at the table or on the counter. They can also be purchased in just about any size to help maximize tight corners in cabinets or pantries.
The idea is not unique, but the designs and clever features are only as limited as you choose to make them. Wine racks are great for holding our favorite gifts, and a countertop, fridge top or freestanding wine rack makes a beautiful gift.
Looking for clever stocking stuffers? Cable bites are small critters who slide over your charging cables to help keep them stiff at the plug. The idea is that holding the connecting ends stiff will help prevent cords breaking or fraying.
Nobody wants to pull out the big vacuum for a few crumbs. You don’t have to if you give someone a clever handheld vacuum instead. Gather crumbs and other small items with a simple sweep and leave the big vacuum tucked away for deep cleans.
There are a lot of sports fans out there and lots of gifts for the home team. But if you want to get your sports fan friend something new this year, consider something a bit more unique than a new ball cap.

If you have a friend who enjoys a cleverly unique gift, a boxing bell can make a great one. Ring the bell and call the family down for dinner. Ring the bell and get everyone’s attention. Ring the bell just to amuse yourself. It’s perfect for the boxing enthusiast.
Running shoe lights

Home plate doormat
For the baseball fan in your life, enjoy stepping onto home plate every time you walk in your door. The home plate doormat looks just home plate, but is designed to welcome your loved one and their guests home.
Mounted ski resort maps
A pretty gift for a winter explorer, mounted ski maps are beautiful to hang on the wall and more than a bit functional as well as you plan trips or document the places you’ve been. Just be sure to buy a map that matches a loved destination!
