“I need some unique gift ideas” is what’s on everyone’s mind as the holiday season approaches. We really don’t want to repeat previous gifts and neither do we want to go with safe but boring options. Plus, if you’re anything like me, you don’t want to venture into the crazy crowds at the store.
So, what is one to do if one needs some seriously unique gifts for Christmas, easily and quickly?
Here’s help! Check out my favorite ways to acquire unique Christmas gifts for everyone without losing my sanity!
1. Shop Online
Shopping online is a great sanity saver and time-saver for us, busy Moms! Not only can you shop while lunch is cooking, you can also save money by getting deals and not falling for impulse purchases like I do. Plus, imagine the stress-free feeling of not having to face the crowds, or even worse, having to stand in line to spend your money. Life is too short!
Make a list of your favorite stores that stock some truly unique products and then check out their websites. Or, you can go to my favorite one-stop-shop: Amazon.com. If you aren’t a Prime member, now would be a great time to sign up for their free 30 day trial, and enjoy free shipping on all those Christmas gifts.
2. Subscribe to Email Newsletters
Another great way to score a great deal on a product you’d been eyeing for a while is by signing up to the store’s email newsletter.
That way, you’ll always know when the said product goes on sale or even, if there’s a discount code or free shipping being offered. With the holiday season, Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, retailers will be competing for your dollars with tons of promotions.
3. Get Personal
Personalize a classic gift to give it a unique spin! Have a photo placed on a mug for Grandma, or get a personalized cell phone case for your niece or nephew. Check out all the items that can be personalized here at More Than Mugs.
Another great idea is to choose a personalized gift that reflects the recipient’s interests.
4. Go DIY
Finally, some of the most unique gifts can come straight from the heart and your hands! Are you a creative artist? Paint a painting. Knit fabulously? Make a scarf! Bake beautifully? Make scrumptious cookies and cake baskets!
Yes, the list is endless and easy-to-do as well, with a bit of planning. Check out our previous post on DIY unique wine glasses.
So, this year, skip the mundane and ordinary and look for unique gifts for everyone without really stepping out of your house. Then decide what you’ll do with all the extra time you’ve saved…a mani/pedi maybe?
