Unique Gifts
Make an Occasion More Fun

Sometimes no matter what the occasion, unique gifts can really be much more interesting and memorable than getting the same old thing that you got last year. Whether it is for a birthday or Valentine's, people tend to lean on the old standards and in fact may even forget that they got the same thing for somebody last year. You have probably been to a Christmas gathering or a birthday party for somebody received the same present twice. If you would like to avoid that, try thinking of some unique gifts that others may not be clever enough to think of.

Try to Think of Unique Gifts that Fit the Person

1. Unique Gifts that are tied to Something they Love

Really the best thing that you can do to find a good gift is to tie it into what somebody has interest in or hobby that they have. Sometimes it can be really obvious; if you know a baseball player get them a baseball glove. Sometimes it can be something a little bit more out of the ordinary. If you know somebody that love cars for instance, you can get them tickets to an upcoming auto show in the area. You can also get them something for their own car. Sometimes this is difficult because people are really personal about what they do to their own car so if you don’t feel comfortable buying accessories, try getting them a bunch of free certificates for a local hand car wash. These are much better for the finish of a car, and every time they go and get their car cleaned or detailed they will think of you.

2. Think of what they like to do

All you really have to do is put some thought into your gift. If you know that they like to do something, you can arrange to make it easier for them in some way. Suppose your mother or your sister is really into shopping. You can pick a really nice place to shop either close to where they live or somewhere far away. If it’s far and you have the budget, you can get a pair of plane tickets to go there. If it’s close, you can get them a limousine ride to and from the shopping mall that day. They will really feel like a princess pulling up to the mall in a limousine. The same thing would work for any number of different places. That they really enjoy going out to dinner you can send them there and a limousine. This way they can share their gift with a group of friends too.

3. Unique Gifts that are really off the Beaten Path

Depending on the person that you’re buying for, you can really choose some gifts that are outside the box. Suppose you have a niece or nephew that is a budding young scientist. There is now a service where you can have a star named after someone. You’re pretty much guaranteed that nobody else will have thought of this one, and this is truly a gift that lasts forever. If they care very much for a certain cause you can also give a donation in their name. Maybe the person you’re buying for is a true eco-warrior. In that case donations to their favourite green organization would show that you appreciate the things they care about.

4. Unique Gifts Can be Sentimental as well

If you’re just thinking of getting something inexpensive and small for someone that you still want to be special, you can take a picture of the two of you and put it in a frame. You can also now find digital frames online at amazon.com and they’re reasonably inexpensive. This way you can put a number of pictures in there if you have enough of them and the frame will rotate through all of the pictures. It’s a real conversation piece, and they can add or change the pictures if they wish.

Unique Gift Giving shows that you Care

When you take the time to think of a unique gift, it shows that you’re putting a little bit more thought into it and this is really the important thing. When somebody is aware that you’re thinking of them and you’ve taken that time that’s the most that they’re going to get out of your present. Most things get used up or old, but the nice memory that comes from opening a special gift will last much longer.
