How to pick the best unique Christmas gifts for everyone

Giving a unique gift for Christmas not only shows that you’ve clearly put a lot of thought into your gift, but it’s also a great loophole around shopping for someone who has everything. But if you’re going to do it, keep these few pointers in mind.

  • This will require some out-of-the-box thinking. While you could certainly give a unique gift that’s also practical, chances are, it’ll be something fun, edgy or downright creative.
  • You’ll need to know your recipient pretty well to pull off a unique gift. Take some time to really think about their quirks and what kind of gift they’d enjoy, but would never know it until they open it.
  • Do some social media stalking. Have they liked or posted anything on their pages that might give you a clue?

What are the most unique DIY Christmas gifts?

If you make something yourself, it’s going to be one-of-a-kind by nature, and what could be more unique than that?

  • Glitter mugs. Dip plain mugs into sparkling glitter and instantly put a new spin on a classic gift.
  • Chalkboard cheese stone. Use chalkboard paint to repurpose a piece of tile or other flat surface as an elegant cheese board that your entertaining-loving recipient can write on.
  • Bird’s nest necklace. Use jewelry wire and colored stones to create a unique necklace that resembles a bird’s nest with eggs. Use meaningful colors like the birthstones of their kids or loved ones to really make your heartfelt message pop.
  • Tiny magnet succulents. Grab a few corks and drill a hole in the top. Glue a magnet to the back, add some dirt and a tiny succulent, and you’ve got an incredibly creative and green holiday gift.
