Stunningly Unique Gift Ideas to Wow That Special Someone!
Choosing the right gift can take time and effort, and is often much trickier than you might think. You have to account for the tastes of the individual, but you also need to think outside of the box as well. If you want your gift to stand out and mean something more you have to go with something a little more unique and offbeat. Look, buying or giving a gift can be a very challenging process because you want to get it right.
The simple fact is that many of us are not very good at buying the right kinds of gifts, even for the people closest to us. You might know their tastes and interests, and you’ll almost certainly have bought gifts for them in the past, but it can still be a challenge. So, here are a few unique and original ideas for gifts fit for any occasion, that will certainly blow them away!
Sometimes a little extra forethought can go a long way to showing a person how much they mean to you. This is why you need to consider a DIY hamper – it’s original, it shows effort, and you can make it as eclectic as you want to. Yes, there are hampers you can buy that have already been put together, but these are likely to be more expensive. Buy the hamper/basket on its own, and create your own quirky hamper, perfectly suited to the recipient’s tastes and interests.
A Flight in a Fighter Jet
What do you get the person who has everything? Well, it kinda depends on what your budget is, to be honest! But, a great place to start would be to give the gift of a flight in a fighter jet! How many people do you know who have ever had this experience? Exactly, unique and fun! Of course, this is going to be wildly expensive, so you’ll have to have a pretty large budget, and make sure you shop around of course too!
Houseplants are becoming less common these days, but they are excellent for people who may not have a garden. If you want to help someone inject some color and life into their daily routine, an Orchid of the month might be the way to go. Houseplants are a great way of livening up a home (or office), and there are proven health benefits related to them as well. So, make sure you consider a houseplant or flower as a gift with a difference, and one that is suitable for any occasion too!
A lot of retro things are making a comeback these days, and record players have definitely enjoyed something of a resurgence. If you have a friend or family member who’s a bit of a throwback and likes things from the past, this is a wonderful idea for something to buy them. Record players give a more raw sound when listening to vinyl, and this appeals to music purists. They also look fantastic on a stand or sat on a cabinet, so this is definitely something to consider.
Whisk Them Away
So many people give something tangible as a gift, but it’s often more fulfilling to gift an experience. This is something that shows thought, but will also allow for the creation of new memories and experiences. If your friend/partner/family member is having a tough time, giving the gift of a break from work could be just the tonic needed to help them relax and calm down. A mini-break is a wonderful way of giving an original gift and knowing it’s going to go down well.
These days more and more people are beginning to see the value of experiences over possessions. You might be considering the mini-break, but you could also cough up for an experience day as well. This might be something like a flying lesson, a skydiving session, or cheese making class. Whatever it is, there are plenty of quirky and funky ideas to choose from here, and you can give somebody an experience that is both original and thrilling!
There is so much stress and anxiety in modern life these days, and we all have that person in our lives who gets overwhelmed all the time. Well, this is the person who needs to relax and find inner peace, so they would definitely benefit from the gift of yoga classes. You’ll be able to buy packages with several sessions attached so they can really start finding their quiet place and working on achieving inner peace and enlightenment. Yoga classes are popular across the world, but you don’t see many being handed out as gifts, so this is a good place to begin.
A Personalized Movie
Look, you don’t need to be Quentin Tarantino or anything, but this is actually a really great idea,. You can put together a movie of your friend’s life, or, at the very least, a trailer. This might be tricky without them finding out, but the ROI on a gift like this is so high. Tap up their parents to get a copy of those old home videos, scour Facebook for uploaded video clips, and check your old WhatsApp media. You might have enough material to put together something highly personal, but also very original as well.
This is along similar lines to the personalized movie, but it might be a little more doable. You certainly need to consider making a scrapbook for your friend, lover, family member. This can be filled with pictures, memories, and ‘remember when’ anecdotes from your lives over the years. This is not the sort of gift they are going to be getting on a frequent basis, and it’s something that relates solely to the two of you; for this reason, it is more personal, exclusive, and heartfelt.
Buying gifts for people can be a tricky challenge, and there’s always at least one person who is impossible to buy for. With these people, you need to make sure you give them something different, something uncommon, something they haven’t had before. If you can do that your gift will be something they treasure for years to come.
