The holidays are coming and you are looking for that just-right gift. The one that’s unique and thoughtful and takes the person into consideration. So here are some unique holiday gift ideas for your consideration. Not sponsored in any way shape or form.
One month delivery of a box of organic produce
That’s right. In many parts of the country you can gift someone with a single delivery from one of the organic box delivery services. If your loved one likes to eat and cook healthy, this is an excellent (and consumable) gift. Usually from $25-35, depending on the size of the box.
Two beautifully wrapped artisan chocolates or truffles
You really need to pick a high-end chocolate maker. In Santa Fe, I was lucky enough to find the exceptional Kakawa. Their salted caramel squares were better than sex. Under $10 for two.
Dog Tarot cards
I saw these in Santa Fe and I absolutely had to call them to your attention. I know they’re right for someone on your list.
Whether it’s an art museum, a natural history museum or something else, chances are your community has an exhibition of interest to someone you love.
If not a museum, you can buy a book of movie tickets and AAA usually has them at a discount. What a great gift for the movie lover in your life!
If someone in your life would appreciate one of these, you can find them many places including on overstock.com, where I’ve bought all mine.
Two pears, a bottle of moscato and a recipe for poached pears
If your friend loves to cook, this is a super-cool gift. Wrap it all in a pretty dishtowel. How easy is that? And thoughtful?
I hate to bring up Santa Fe again, but the Cheesemonger there is fabulous. I have to find one as good in my city. A few pieces of great cheese, a box of nice crackers all packaged up in a basket? Hey, I’d like to get that!
Drive a stock car or be a fighter pilot for a day
You don’t want to leave out the traditional man in your life, right? Or the female car fan? Some of the raceways offer this and it would make a great gift for the right person. The fighter pilot thing is usually in a simulator. Yep. Sounds like fun, no?
Zippo makes a good one for about $15. It IS winter, after all, in most parts of the country. Sort of. If your loved one spends a lot of time outside in the cold, it’s a fabulous gift.
Make-your-own T-shirt, sweatshirt, etc
I did this one year at Zazzle for my nephew. Also mugs, buttons and so much else, and the quality is excellent, not like those old-school decals we used to see. Love love love this.
Here’s one of my shopping secrets:
I love One Kings Lane. Shop carefully and you can get some really beautiful things at incredibly low prices. Not everything is a bargain, but I shop there a lot and find great deals.
Well, that’s it for this post. I’ll have another on this same topic soon, but this should get you started.
Oh, wait. Did you read my post about great books to give for Christmas, HERE? You must.
Shop early and enjoy the holidays! Oh, and add any of your creative ideas in the Comments, ok?
