Creative Gift Ideas For Aunts & Uncles | Birthday and Christmas Presents 2015
My Tops 8 Gift Choices For Aunties & Uncles
I think aunts and uncles are difficult to buy for as they're not as close as parents, and also you usually don't see them that often. It's harder therefore to give presents that are particularly personal, so I've listed gift ideas below which are more general, plus some which are suited to people with certain interests such as gardening or whiskey drinking. I've also included a couple of products I know that my own uncles and aunts would like, so I hope those will be helpful to you also.
I have listed the top 8 ideas for uncles and top 8 ideas for aunties separately, although some would be suited to both, plus a few extras.
I hope you find this collection useful :-)

Air Plant Terrarium Kit
Instead of giving a house plant or a floral bouquet this year, why not choose something a bit different with this glass bauble ornament?

Particularly suited to those who like to entertain house guests with dinner parties, this set is compact and contains everything anyone would need to serve cheeses in style.
Ornate Moroccan Candle Holder
Intricately patterned products can be difficult to gift because of personal taste, however this lamp is so versatile (indoors, outdoors, hanging up, placed on a table, lighting up a garden path etc.) I'm sure anyone could find a place for one!

Add a bit of fun to gift-giving by finding a novel yet practical product to make your aunt smile!

Barbecue themed presents are a classic choice for men's gifts, and this camo apron is a top-rated choice for a grill master and beer connoisseur!
Smart Ass Trivia Game
My aunt and uncle love games, puzzles and brain teasers, so anything like that would make an enjoyable gift, and a game that can be played by everybody when we get together is even better!
Hanging Outdoor Bird Feeder
Even if your aunt and uncle aren't exactly nature enthusiasts, as long as they have a garden with a tree I think a bird feeder would be a definite hit...unless they have a bird phobia obviously!
Boxed Whiskey Glass
If your uncle is a whiskey drinker then I am sure he would appreciate this specially designed glass so he can really drink it in style!
Traditional Office Desk Set
I think it's important for anybody to have a good pen and pencil set, whether it's for writing notes, letters, cards, cheques, messages, signatures or completing any office work. An ideal gift set.
Modern Wire Wine Rack
If your aunt or uncle enjoys a glass of wine of an evening, this simple but very smart and elegant wine rack may be the gift you're looking for.
