Gifts that are Unusual

Updated on March 27, 2014

Gifts That are Unusual and Unique

Are you are at the point of shopping for the person who seems to have everything ? I was looking for something for a friend that fits in this category. Searching opened a door to some unique and dare I say unusual gifts. At one time the only way for someone living away from the hustle and bustle of the city to get a really unusual gift was to make it. For example, wait for the persons pet to die and stuff it. You might loose a friend but you can be at peace knowing you got them a true one-of-a-kind unusual gift. Making a gift is great in theory but only works for kids. You might find it better to avoid the person until after the holiday and bring out the excuses. "I was going to get you blah, blah, blah." or "Did I forget you ?" You are guaranteed to slowly fall into the back log of this persons friends file and wind up in the trash. So if your looking for something that is a sure hit check out these ideas.

Gift for Photographer - Thermo Lenscup with Stainless Steel Insulated Tumbler

This is a cool gift if you need something for a photographer. It is both practical and a real conversation piece. Watch as your friends expression changes from joy and disbelief to humor accompanied by a hearty laugh. If they expected a camera lens forget the second part and duck to avoid a concussion when the gift is thrown at you.

Party Gift - Don't break the bottle original edition

I love puzzles and this is one that I had to try. When visiting for Christmas dinner it is nice to have something to give to the host. Instead of just handing over the usual bottle of wine why not put a twist on it. Put a bottle in the puzzle then used a medium size Holiday bag, the kind with the handles to hold it. Put a little tissue paper on top to conceal the prize inside and you have a great gift. Once it is time for a drink watch the fun ensue as everyone takes a turn trying to solve this interesting puzzle. Don't let them get too thirsty before working on the puzzle or things might end up broken.

Amazon Shop

In order to wrap the wine puzzle gift when it is put together you can use wrapping paper but that could be a nightmare to wrap. The easy to wrap way is using a Christmas / Holiday design bag. The wine gift is about 14" tall so you will need a tall bag. Most tall bags art too wide and the gift will need a lot of added tissue paper to keep it in place. I use a smaller bag and cover the part of the gift that sticks out with tissue paper. Just lightly crumble the paper so it lays over it nicely.

The dimensions of the wine gift 14 x 5 x 4.9 inches

Wooden Tie and Bowtie

Totally recycled using reclaimed wood this unique tie and bow tie combo set will be the most unexpected gift to keep it "Green". For the geek on your shopping list. One size fits all with a polished steel knot will blow em away. Fun way to add that extra touch when getting dressed.

Unusual Dart Boards

These are some of the unusual dart boards I designed. You can see more of these interesting boards at my Zazzle shop Inspired Ambitions Dart Boards
I really enjoy design and putting these fun game boards together. I will do special order designs. Please leave a message in the comments below and / or on an item page. Each item has a contact button by the shop name below the image and image description. I will be happy to work with you on any design you might be interested in.

My ID for this shop is kahmier - I wanted to use Kashmier when I set up the shop after a song by my favorite band, Led Zeppelin. Alas being a night owl is not always a good thing when starting something new on the Internet. I for got a letter and the store is now under kahmier. I did not plan on selling anything when I first opened a store I wanted to put my photographs and fractal work somewhere. I am now a power seller on Zazzle and I love to make designs for people looking for something special.

Aqua Coffee Table Aquarium

I would love to get one of these for Christmas. It is fantastic top watch fish while they swim around in a tank. What a wonderful stress relieving gift this will make. The lighting alone is something I would not mind having in a coffee table for the ambience.

This unique coffee table aquaraium is a real stress reliever. Not only that it is a fantastic conversation piece. Blue glass gravel is illuminated from below. A perfect way to end a long day of work or play.
