Set Yourself Apart with Unusual Gift Ideas

Jun 28, 2008
Whether it's mother's day or Christmas there are times every year you have to purchase gifts for your friends and loved ones. I'm not sure, but I think most father's don't really need another tie!

You can set yourself apart from the crowd and give your friends and family gift that mean a lot, and will be remembered for a long time to come. Giving these kind of gifts requires coming up with unusual gift ideas. You have to do some thinking, beyond what's on the sale rack of Walmart.

Here are a few tricks to coming up with unusual gift ideas.

Think about what the person who will be receiving your gift enjoys doing or loves in general. From this point you can put an unusual spin on the gift. You can find an original or personalized gift relating to that love.

Find out if the person has a hobby or collects something specific. My brother in law loves Coca Cola memorabilia. This always provides me with an opportunity to find an antique or personalized coca cola product. It also allows me to be on the lookout for something special long before the holiday comes close.

This leads me to my second trick.

Don't leave gift buying until the last minute. It only stunts your creativity and makes it difficult to look past the time constraints to find those unusual gift ideas.

Here's another great trick, one that will be remembered for some time to come.

Think about a problem the person you are gifting has. Find a way to solve that problem.

I had this great idea for my mom. She has recipes on cards in tons of different recipe holders. I decided to sneak her recipes out of her house an put all her recipes together in a personalized cookbook. You can easily do this with online publishing through cafepress and many other places.

Does the person have photos of family and friends scattered about, getting lost and torn?

Why not pull them together and turn them into digital images and add them to a digital frame. The person who receives this gift will have a daily reminder of your love and their beautiful images.

If you think outside the box coming up with unusual gift ideas can be fun and exciting. The look on the recipients face will be well worth the extra work it took you to come up with a spectacular gift that will be remembered for years to come.
