Unique Christmas Gifts - Christmas Gift Ideas

Updated on July 3, 2011

Unique Christmas gifts could fall under the category of something different, funny, odd, unusual and even weird. In other words, Christmas gifts that you have never thought of giving until now.  When I thought hard about Christmas gift ideas that are unique, I had to laugh at the realization that I really had the tendency to give something practical. You see I would rather that the gift I give would be of use to the other person than just ending up inside a closet and gather dust.

Anyhow, with a determined spirit to allow myself to go beyond and look for Christmas gifts that are unique, I present to you the following Christmas gift ideas. Enjoy shopping!

If you want to make someone smile, then this smiley gift is perfect for him or her. To anyone that picks it up, it gives out little funny quotes and positive affirmations that will surely perk one's day up. Great novelty gift item!

GE 50723 Motion Sensing Night Light

I don't like sleeping with the lamp on. But I recall my parents would insist on having a lamp on for fear that they might stumble in the dark.  So this night light caught my attention because of this feature.  This motion sensing night light turns on automatically when motion is detected. The night light includes a safety back so the lamp cannot be touched during operation. The light will turn OFF 60 seconds after the last detected movement and will not turn ON after that.

Wii Fit Plus

Wii Fit is the in thing in the world of video games. The Wii Fit Plus Bundle includes the game software and the Wii Balance Board. For the first time, users can mix and match which strength and yoga activities they prefer on a given day. The new features help the players with their workouts along with exercises and balance games designed to keep them fun. You can customized your workout routines and based on the time you have, pick a 20, 30 or 40 minute workout. The range of games and customization options will make players want to play every day. You'll be having so much fun that your workouts will seem to fly by in no time at all.

Now this is one of the gifts I would like to have this Christmas! Hahahaha

EasyBloom Plant Sensor

This is perfect for gardeners-to-be who do not have much experience about planting. This will aid the person to create a garden without the discouraging cycle of trial and error planting.  It can also diagnose ailing plants and bring them back to health.  Find plants to thrive in every area of your home and garden, based on algorithms developed by leading plant horticulturalists and botanists.  But here's the downside: EasyBloom data is specifically calculated for the United States and is not recommended for use outside of the U.S. 

So that means I can't put this in my wish list.  But maybe you can.

When I saw this apron, I just new I had to include it in this list.  Made of high quality embroidered cotton/poly blend apron.   The host can definitely make a statement at the next dinner party. This unique apron is sure to be a conversation piece at any gathering. Perfect for the home entertainer or adventurous gourmet. One for every personality! Fully adjustable to accommodate both larger and smaller builds.  Hmmm let us also see how your husband or wife will react.

Bacon Air Freshener

This one is plain silly and fun!  If you know of someone who is a bacon lover and would want their car or room to smell like bacon (don't wince), buy this pack now. The smell may not last forever but it I am sure it will make them laugh.

You can't go wrong with these.  Indulge in the Isotoner pillowy-plush comfort slippers. Feature soft padding underfoot for enhancing comfort zones at heel and arch area of foot, and they have a secret sole which gives arch contour and support that helps relax tired feet.
