What are the most unusual gift ideas?

Well, how far down that rabbit hole do you really want to go? We know you want your gift to be out-of-the-box or you wouldn’t be here. You’d be at your local big box looking for something generic and easy and uninspired. But, read on to learn more about the most popular types of unusual gift ideas and who we think they’re best to give them to.

1

How do you shop for unusual gifts for women?

You know you like to buy unusual gifts for her, but sometimes you just draw a blank. Here are a couple of tips to get your gears turning for the one-of-a-kind lady in your life. Whether it’s a jar of love notes, plantable wish paper loaded with beautiful flower seeds, a personalized red rose, or chocolate body paint...you’ve got to know her pretty well to choose an unusual gift that will make her day. Check out our collection of ideas and find something that stands out as unusually “her”.

What are some unusual gifts for him?

He’s not your usual dude and that’s why you won’t settle for anything less than an unusual gift for him. But, what are some unusual gifts for him, anyway? Well, the first thing you should consider is where you’re finding your gift. If you go to the local big box or name brand store, then you’re probably not going to find anything unusual. You are actually in a perfect place right now to find a truly unusual gift. We are proud of our collection of gifts that think outside the box and go beyond what’s expected. A personalized whiskey aging barrel, beef jerky of the month club, a leather bound history of golf book with his name embossed on the cover, his very own Pac-Man arcade table, or a chance to race a Lamborghini are just a few of the unusual gifts for guys that we’re proud to have in our collection.

Where can you find unusual gift baskets?

Typically, when someone says they’re going to give a gift basket you think of something generic or low quality. But there are amazing gift baskets out there! In fact, there are some seriously unusual gift baskets that will surprise and delight even the most oddball person on your list. From beers around the world to a caviar chest to a basket of superfood lattes to go...there is an unusual gift basket to suit just about anyone.

How do you find unusual gifts for couples?

If you happen to be one of the lucky people who knows a happily married couple that just doesn’t fit the cookie cutter mold then you know you have to give them something unusual. But what? Well, depending on how risque you’re willing to get, you could give them a kit to make their own work of art by rolling around in paint on a canvas. Yup, that’s real. Or reel it in with a pizza oven that fits in their regular charcoal grill. Toast the happy couple with a set of singing wine glasses. If it’s a gift that will make them stop to try and figure out, then you’re on the right track to finding an unusual gift for a couple.


5

What are some uncommon gift ideas?

Uncommon gifts are gifts that you just don’t see everyday. We are proud of our curated collection because we don’t opt for the trendy, typical, standard gift fare. We look for uncommon gifts that are uniquely personal and put them all in one place. We like gifts that you can personalize to make them one-of-a-kind. We like gifts that you’re almost guaranteed they haven’t seen or heard of before you gave it to hem. We like gifts that speak uniquely to their interests or dreams. That is what makes an uncommon gift and if that’s what you’re looking for, then you’re in the right place!

Secrets to Scoring Weird Gifts for Delightfully Unusual People
For many occasions, earnest gifts are often the way to go. For others, funny gifts fit the bill. But every so often, there's someone you know so well that you're sure weird gifts are the only route possible. Here's to the unusual people in your life - may they stay weird!

1
Pick Something She'll Never Actually Use
Did you know you can name a star after someone, buy them an acre on the moon, or purchase them a tiny small plot of land in a foreign country? No, they'll never use it - but they'll relish knowing it's theirs.

2
Get Him Something Weirdly Personalized
Personalization is heartwarming. That is, unless it ventures into unusual territory. A personalized set of towels? Great. A custom stuffed animal of your friend? Pretty unusual. You can even consider having a caricature drawn of your favorite weirdo.

3
Gift Her Something Wacky to Wear
Silly socks, outrageous t-shirts, and even funny-looking hats are perfectly weird gifts for someone who refuses to dress "normal."

4
Choose Things That Look Like Other Things
Measuring spoons that look like musical notes, a bottle opener that resembles a hockey puck, a pillow that looks like a chocolate chip cookie - these are just a few examples of weird gifts that will appeal to unusual sensibilities.

5
Identify a Double-Duty Gift
Multitasking is pretty normal. But a smartphone stand that doubles as a vase or a towel that doubles as a guide to food and wine pairings. Pretty unusual? Perfectly weird gifts.

6
Get a Goofy Game
Unusual people like to share in their weirdness, so gift him with a three-man chess set or a bizarre board game for his next party.

7
Gift a Gag
We're not talking about just any gag. We're talking something that might not make any sense at all, could be a gift for someone of a completely different age, with completely different taste.
