Do you want to buy an unusual present for someone this Christmas? Something that will stand out from the rest and they won’t forget about in a hurry?
It can be difficult coming up with a new and exciting present every year which is why something a little unusual could be perfect. Perhaps, it’s just a twist on something you would normally get them or you might think completely outside of the box.
Whether you want a funny gift for a Secret Santa within your friendship group or a quirky present for your significant other, here’s some inspiration:
Put Your Face On It
Socks, pillows, air fresheners, luggage, marshmallows, towels – you can put a photo of your face on pretty much anything these days. Make sure you are pulling a funny expression for the picture! It doesn’t have to be your face, of course – it could be a pet or even their face.
Crystal Maze Live Experience
Do you know someone who reckons they could solve the mysteries and take on the challenges in the Crystal Maze? Well, now they actually can in the Crystal Maze Live Experience. It’s definitely an unusual gift but will be a lot of fun to do with a group of friends too!
Men are notoriously hard to buy for so an unusual experience will be a great alternative to that shirt you buy him every year. Check out other experiences for him here.
Bluetooth table speaker
They may have a table and perhaps they have a speaker, but do they have a table with a built in speaker? This stylish and quirky gift is also incredibly practical. The speaker provides 360 degree sound, through seven speakers – so immersive your favourite artists could be in the room with you.
Throw Throw Burrito
You can put Scrabble down and forget Monopoly when you give a more unusual game that you can all play together on Christmas Day, such as this – Throw Throw Burrito. The aim of the game is to match cards while throwing – and dodging – burritos. Get hit and you’ll lose any points you got from the cards.
Recording Studio Session
Does the recipient of your unusual gift fancy themselves as the next Justin Bieber or wish they were the fifth member of Little Mix? Then why not get them a recording studio experience and enable them to become a star for the day. They’ll get to experience what it’s like to record a song to take home with them.
Famous Faces Socks
If you know someone who likes to wear socks in bright colours and quirky patterns, then why not go one step further and get them a pair with a well-known face on them. You can choose from the likes of Louis Theroux and David Attenborough. A novelty gift that will be a great addition to their collection.
Musical bottomless brunch
How about tickets to something a little different that you can both look forward to doing together in the new year? There are a number of quirky bottomless brunches that come with entertainment. From Disney and the West End to Hip Hop and the ‘90s – there is something for all musical tastes.
Unicorn Tears Gin
Forget Gordon’s – if the recipient of your unusual gift is partial to a gin then look for something a little different. This magical bottle of ‘Unicorn Tears’ is unique in both name and its glittery finish. It’s also available in pink or black. Alternatively, choose from Pixie Tears’ Gin or Flamingo Tears’ Gin.
It’s Christmas – so why not buy someone baubles? Not just any baubles though. You can get ones that say ‘Drink Me’ which you fill with their favourite tipple or why not personalise one with a picture.
Does the person you are buying a gift for have a beard? Then why not get them a set of colourful beard baubles that will give them incredibly festive facial hair this Christmas!
Breaking Bad Cocktails
If you know someone that loves Breaking Bad then a trip to this immersive molecular cocktail bar from ABQ London is the perfect unusual gift. They will board the RV, don a hazmat suit and ‘cook’ cocktails, complete with dry ice and test tubes, for a truly authentic experience.
If you fancy buying something a little unusual for someone this year – there are plenty of quirky gifts and experiences to choose from, to suit all budgets. Now you just need to decide which one you are going to get.
