Unique Holiday Gift Ideas

Updated on April 14, 2014

A Holiday "Unique Gift" Giving Guide!

Don't be discouraged. The packaging might not be different or unique, but the gift inside just might be! Hey, it could be a house!

Surprise someone with a really different gift, why don't you? Be original. Be Creative.

Consider this page your "jumping off point" for finding truly unique gifts for friends or loved ones.

Gift giving does not have to be difficult. It does not matter how much you spend--honest. I have found that most people do not care what a gift costs, but how much thought you put into the selection of that gift.

One of a kind gift - Zap those germs to oblivion on the toothbrush!

The germs do not stand a chance with this gift. Too bad it does not come with a micro-mini coffin!

Great gift for the hypochondriac or just someone you care about.

Toothbrush Sanitizer--definitely not something I would seek out to buy for myself--even though I need one. In fact, I had no idea that this product even existed. Great gift for the family that just throws those toothbrushes in a drawer!

Elegant and Unique Candle - 60 Hour "Courting" candle

In the 1600 to 1800, a "courting candle" was a tradition. It was set up to let a suitor know how long they were allowed to stay in the home of an unmarried young lady. Read more at History of the Courting Candle.

What is the most wonderfully unique gift you have ever received? Feel free to put a link, if you have one. FYI--spam is not tolerated.

I am always looking for a gift that will be liked by the receiver. It is getting more difficult for me to find unique, one of a kind presents for my friends and family. However, last year I found a gift that no one in my family had received. What was it? Collegiate NCAA "Pixie" (AKA=elf) On The Shelf!. Go see my own personal Crimson Tide Pixie by clicking Crimson Tide.
