Unique Lighthouse Gifts

Updated on July 3, 2014

Special Lighthouse Gifts

Are you looking for a really unique gift for the lighthouse enthusiast on your gift list?

Lighthouses have long been a source of pleasure for many people.  They bring with them tales of romance and history and for many people this symbol is also a source of spiritual comfort.  

I enjoy writing about lighthouses and have visited and photographed over 40 different lights over the years.  

In this lens I have looked for some unique lighthouse gifts.  I hope you enjoy the selection I have found.

      Hi,

      Your page is delightful. I am an artist and have drawn many of Georgia's lighthouses. I have these reproduced as prints, note cards and glass ball Christmas ornaments. I would love to be featured on your page. Please take a look at my Pinterest page or Instagram page at DaleMcDanielWatts and let me know if you are interested. Thank you so much!

      I have received many unique gifts at different stages of my life. It's hard to pick out just one right now. You've outdone yourself in your lighthouse related gift selections. I can't imagine a shopper who wants to give a lighthouse enthusiast a gift not finding the perfect one here.

      These are really lovely gifts for lighthouse collectors.

      Unique gift? Once a Chinese friend gave us a small statue of a topless (and well-endowed) AFRICAN girl. I never could figure out how something like that came to be a gift.It was most indecent, and we used some cloth to give her a halter top.

      My most unusual gift was a gun from my hubby's uncle. I was completely shocked. My faves on this page are the apron and the birdfeeder. I would simply love to get either of these for Christmas. Yes, unique!

      I love the new Hatteras items...I have lots of lighthouses, but Hatteras is my favorite since we always vacation on Hatteras island. I also love Boyd's Bears and I see that they have a new Lighthouse treasure box, that looks like the Hatteras lighthouse. I'm HOPING to receive that as my most unique gift this Christmas!! ;-) (Maybe you could find that on Amazon or eBay...I don't know.)

      The most unique gift I've ever received was a check from my husband to put towards a kitchen remodel. What a guy!

      I love this lens. I have a friend who has her guest bath very tastefully decorated with a lighthouse theme. It's so pretty. I'll have to tell her about this page!

      I like lighthouses, too. There are a couple of very old and unique ones here in south Louisiana. The most unique and special gift that we received was when our dog, Rio, found us, the day after Christmas.
