Many years ago, a friend's twins were being baptized. For a baptismal gift, we gave them each a tinned oyster with a guaranteed pearl inside. We thought that when they got older they could open their tin, find their pearl and have a piece of jewellery made with it.
Finding a birthday gift for my father became more difficult each year. Although we live much closer to the beach than we do a farm, I bought him a baby pig one year. She was intended to be raised as a future menu item, but instead she became a beer drinking, pizza eating member of our somewhat unusual family.
She is still a topic of conversation many years later.
I bought surfing lessons as a wedding present for a couple several years ago. That unique idea was one of the things that helped me develop the idea for company that I currently own.
