Christmas 2016: Five unusual Christmas Gifts for the person who has everythingChristmas 2016Culture
Looking for Christmas presents can be tricky these days, especially when there is just so much to choose from. Trying to find the right gift for someone who already seems to have it all is even more of a challenge. There is always somebody who is going to be difficult to impress on your list. So we’ve put together a list of five unusual festive gift ideas, to help you find something unique and surprising to please even the toughest crowd this Christmas.
If you’re hunting for a gift for a book nerd or writer, The Literary Gift Company is a wonderful website. They sell anything from “Edgar Allan Poe-ka Dot” wrapping paper, to Jane Austen-themed earrings! Or if you’re on a budget, just give them “Poetry Instead of a Card”.
Looking for a perfect statement T-shirt for someone picky? Then check out Redbubble’s huge range of unusual and artistic designs that you won’t find anyone else wearing. Their designs can be printed on a soft T-shirt, a hoodie, a scarf, a dress, or even a chiffon top.
When a normal present simply won’t do, try giving them the gift of an epic experience instead. Virgin Experience Days offer a ton of different affordable ways to make long-lasting memories, from sightseeing tours, zombie survival experiences, romantic spa dates, fine dining, theatre tickets, or even one-off flying lessons.
If you want to truly surprise your friends this Christmas, check out Firebox’s Mystery Boxes. They come in different themes like Foodie, Gadget, Booze, NSFW and even Magical Unicorn. Firebox’s products are infamously eccentric, so whatever it turns out you’ve given them (you won’t know either!), they certainly won’t be expecting it.
When there’s an artist in your life and you know they’re already inundated with drawing pads and pencil sets, you might want to take a look at iskn.co. They’ve just started selling an awesome new product called The Slate 2. It digitises paper artwork instantly and makes for a really unique creative present.
