Top 10 Unisex Christmas Gifts for Adults

Updated on November 17, 2014

Unisex Christmas Gifts Under $50

This year's holiday festivities may require you to purchase unisex Christmas gifts. Office Christmas parties, yankee swaps, secret Santa, and white elephant gift exchanges usually require a gift that would be suitable for both guys and gals.

If you've ever participated in one of these events, you probably still have coffee mugs and bubble bath gift baskets (still wrapped in cellophane) collecting dust somewhere in your house. I used to stress myself out searching for the perfect gifts for these exchanges at the last minute. But, with a little planning and research in advance, I was able to score some pretty cool unisex Christmas gifts that are sure to be the hit of the next Christmas party. And all for under $50.

And if you're shopping for a kid, scroll to the bottom of this article for some great ideas for presents for kids or teenagers.

On-the-Go Blender

Blend your favorite smoothies and shakes right in this personal sports bottle. This blender might be small, but at 250 watts, it crushes ice and frozen fruit for your favorite beverages. Includes a 20 oz. BPA-free sports bottle that fits into standard cup holders.

This personal blender comes in red, green, orange, pink, and powder blue and even comes with a recipe book. It's so easy to make wholesome and delicious beverages to take on the go, making it the perfect gift for guys and girls!


Personal Alcohol Breathalyzer

Whether party guests are occasional beer and wine drinkers or hardcore party animals, this little gadget might just come in handy for them in a big way. If you've ever been unsure if you should drive after having a couple (or more) drinks, then you'll know why this personal breathalyzer is good thing to keep around.

This easy-to-use device measures your blood alcohol concentration after you blow into it for a few seconds. The user's blood alcohol percentile displays on the LCD screen within 10 seconds. Everyone at the party will want to try it!


Packing Cubes—Three Piece Set

As far as unisex Christmas gifts go, these are probably my favorite! My family owns several sets of these (in different colors of course!) and we just love them. When I travel, I use them to pack my makeup and bathroom necessities. I even use them to separate clothing in my suitcase, such as undergarments, tops, pants, etc. My teenage daughter has taken hers on cruises, sleep-overs, and even to school to carry things that don't fit into her backpack.

They are lightweight with a mesh top that makes it easy to see what's inside. The bags collapse to almost flat when not in use, making them easy to store. They come in several different colors and sizes with the small ones usually costing about $20 for a set of 3.


Make It a Redneck Christmas with Redneck Wine Jars

The ORIGINAL Redneck Wine Glass - Wine Down Redneck Style (4 Pack)

Who doesn't love a little redneck humor? These RedNek wine glasses definitely fit the bill! Recipients of this gift will surely get a chuckle out of these while they're begging to know where you got them from.

Of course these are more of a gag gift but most of us know at least one person who would use these on a daily basis. So they're amusing and functional! Assembled in the USA, the glasses have a screw-top lid and hold a full 12 ounces of your favorite liquid. Eggnog anyone?


Improve Their Essence: Ck One by Calvin Klein, Eau De Toilette Mini

I know what you're thinking—a fragrance for men AND women? Yes, it's true. Calvin Klein's own version of this unisex fragrance has (in my opinion) a fruity, musky smell to it. But in a way that's neither masculine nor feminine.

Ck One comes in a 6.7 ounce bottle and there are other sizes available as well. It's a popular choice for unisex perfumes and gets very good user reviews. But don't just take my word for it. Instead of buying one, why not grab two and keep one for yourself?


Head/Neck/Face Protection from the Cold for Him or Her

You can't go wrong with a one-size-fits-all all-in-one scarf and hat set. Stylish and comfortable, this is available in two different color schemes.

When I was a kid, my mom used to knit and crochet hats, mittens, and scarves for me to wear. I would wait until I got to the bus stop and shove them all in my backpack. Apparently, either they weren't in style at the time or I just had no style. Whatever the case, there's no denying that they're in style now. This set would make a great addition to anyone's wardrobe, male or female.


Pocket Datebook Journal, Genuine Goatskin Leather

This isn't your run-of-the-mill personal planner. This one is genuine goatskin leather and has 168 gilt-edged calendar, appointment, and resource pages. It's small enough to fit into a purse or pocket, yet large enough to document important dates and appointments.

Whether they're a corporate CEO, a student, or a stay-at-home mom, this gift will help anyone stay organized and on-task. And if red just isn't your cup of tea, there are many other colors to choose from!


Give Them Something to Write Home About: A Multi-Function Pen AND Stylus in One

Cross Tech3+ Multifunction Pen with Stylus, Satin Blue with Chrome Plated Appointments (AT0090-2)
Cross Tech3+ Multifunction Pen with Stylus, Satin Blue with Chrome Plated Appointments (AT0090-2)

Ok, I was wrong. THIS is my favorite gift of all. And since I don't have one yet, it's going on my Christmas the top.

This baby writes in black or red ink and pencil with just a twist of the pen. And that's not even the best part. What I love most about this pen is that you can flip it over and use the stylus accessory (included) to navigate tablets, smartphones, and other touch screen devices. The only problem is that you may discover you want to keep it for yourself. That's okay. It'll be our little secret.


Make-Your-Own Soda Machine

SodaSparkle Home Soda Maker Kit Easy-to-Use Sparkling Carbonated Seltzer Beverage Maker, WHITE
SodaSparkle Home Soda Maker Kit Easy-to-Use Sparkling Carbonated Seltzer Beverage Maker, WHITE

I am a huge soda drinker and am really just tired of buying 2-liter bottles at the store. Great for guys and girls alike, this home soda machine comes in a variety of colors and turns regular tap water—filtered is best—into a carbonated beverage in just seconds. No batteries or electricity needed.

The starter kit includes everything you need to make your own (healthier, cheaper) soda, at home or at work, and it's is easy to use. Simply fill the bottle up to the line with water and screw the bottle onto the machine. A push of a button squirts the CO2 into the water, giving it its fizz. Unscrew the bottle, add syrup or juice if you want, and give it a quick shake.

Reviews of this product are very good overall. Although there seems to be a subtle taste difference between homemade beverages and name-brand drinks, most people are still happy with it. Many have stated that they have saved money as a result of not having to purchase soda, seltzer water, and other prepackaged carbonated drinks from the store. And then of course, there's the environmental issues. No cans or bottles equals less waste.

There doesn't seem to be too many cons associated with this item. The most prevalent complaints are that the beverages lose their fizz much quicker than store-bought sodas and that the cost of the CO2 canisters can become expensive. However, many people trade in their used canisters at Bed Bath & Beyond and present a 20% off coupon that they receive regularly by signing up for emails on the BB&B website.

I thought about buying this for one of our family Christmas gift exchanges, but am now seriously considering asking Santa for one for myself this year. I might even ask for it a little earlier than Christmas. After all, I'm pretty sure I'm on Santa's "nice" list. Gift Card in a Greeting Card—Perfect for Guys and Girls of All Ages

      It's that time of year again! I like all of your gift ideas, with the most unusual one being the breathalyzer gift. I really like the PB&J pouch and can think of a number of people who would get a kick out of receiving that as a gift.

      Gift cards are probably the safest choice. Then the person can buy what he wants.
