Christmas is that magical time of the year when you spend days choosing thoughtful gifts for your friends and family. Sharing and giving gifts is as old as Christmas itself when the three wise men came bearing gifts for Jesus in Bethlehem. Christmas gifts are often bought last-minute and not a lot of thought is put into them. Soon after the holiday has passed, these gifts are forgotten. Give unusual, imaginative, and unique Christmas gifts to people and put a little spark back into Christmas. Let your Christmas gifts be remembered for the special thought and care you put into them. Here are some great Christmas gift ideas.
Unique Christmas gifts
- A great Christmas gift for grandparents and parents is a 'family portrait platter' with up to 20 family members custom painted on beautiful china platters. With names, inscriptions and personal details to make every figure look just like the real person, this gift is really unique.
- A very thoughtful yet unique gift for someone you love is a hand knitted scarf, knitted by you. If you do not know how to knit, then the weeks/ or months before Christmas is the right time to learn and surprise the recipient. A mother or grandmother is sure to be bowled over by such a caring gift idea.
- Give a magazine gift subscription to someone you care for. Christmas gifts do not have to come gift-wrapped. Magazine subscriptions make excellent gifts because there is a magazine to suit every taste (cookery, gardening, cars) and because it is a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year.
- Give Tickets to a sold-out show to your husband or wife, or even your teenage son or daughter. This unique Christmas gift has the power to amaze someone you love and have them remember the treat that you gave them for years to come. The downside is that you have to plan for this for a long time, you cannot up and buy tickets for a sold out show at the last minute.
