As Christmas is almost upon us, the panic begins to set in. We all have that one person on our list that is very difficult to buy for. You know the one, the totally content person who seems to have everything they could possibly want already! Never fear, we have got some unusual and inspirational gift ideas that could earn you extra brownie points this Christmas!
- Ethical Bracelets
We’ve all seen the pictures of our oceans full of the plastics and waste. For the ecologically conscious recipient, why not get them a bracelet made from recycled glass and plastics? 4ocean promise that for every bracelet sold, they remove 1 pound of waste from the oceans. The beads in each bracelet are made from recycled glass and the cords are made from recycled water bottles. Beautifully stylish and 100% waterproof and available in 13 colours. A very unusual and ethical gift!
- A Woodland Trust ‘Homes for Wildlife’ Gift
Allowing The Woodland Trust to plant a tree in the name of the gift recipient gives them the wonderful knowledge that they are ensuring our British wildlife will have homes for the future. Many creatures benefit from the trees that are planted – birds, beetles, squirrels, and dormice all need trees to live in and we all benefit from the oxygen produced by each tree. The Homes for Wildlife gift is available as either a postal gift, which can be personalised by you at home or as an email version, if you prefer. Perfect if you have left things a bit late!
- Storm Glass
They might seem to have everything but do they have a storm in a glass? The Admiral Fitzroy’s Storm Bottle from Menkind will predict the weather up to 2 days in advance! That’s right you are giving the gift of prophesy! Now that is not something you see every day!
- Name A Star
Whilst they might have every possible earthly possession, what about a gift that is literally out of this world? You can’t give them the Earth, but you can give them a star named after them, Star Name Registry offer a range of packages from basic star naming, right up to twin binary stars. The recipient will have their named star entered into the registry and can download an app that allows them to locate their star. A constellation map is included to help them locate the star with a telescope along with a Star Name Deed. How heavenly does that sound? Sorry we will stop the bad punning!
- Become a Lord of Lady
How about a change of prefix? Perhaps a Lord or Lady or even a Laird would suit? Highland Titles can make that dream a reality! A truly special gift, your chosen recipient will receive a Master Title Deed which will allow them to style themselves as a Lord, Laird, or Lady. Along with this new title, they will receive a small plot of land (anything from 1 to 1000 square feet, depending on which option you choose) that they can visit anytime, and the purchase will help to create nature reserves in Scotland. A grand gift indeed!
- Mini Me
Make sure they never miss you again with a mini-me Snugzy! This huggable mini version of you will keep them company and be a constant reminder of you or, for that matter, anyone else you choose. All you need is a picture of yours (or their) face. They have over 500 bodies to choose from, with your chosen face super-imposed on the head, they will never be without comfort again!
Which will you choose?
And there you have it, from earth-saving to a personal storm in a teacup, out of this world to sublime, 6 wonderfully unique gift ideas for the person who has everything!
