Unusual Christmas Gift Ideas


You must have someone in your family who is always a bit difficult to buy a Christmas gift for – they might have everything already, you may want to surprise them with something really different, or they might be a bit, well, boring!

Unusual Christmas Gift Ideas

Mummy and I have come up with some unusual Christmas gift ideas-  we hope they help you out!

  1. A notice board with a difference. How about a felt notice board of your own design? Have a board designed for your loved one with their child’s artwork, or design the perfect family planner for them.
  2. Adopt an animal – from just £2.50 a month, a great gift that really helps too. You can adopt a wide range of animals from Born Free, and receive a cuddly toy and information pack too.
  3. A magazine subscription – Mummy has had this in the past, and loved getting the treat of a magazine every month. Many have free gifts and big discounts too. This is perfect for all ages.
  4. In a similar way, a subscription box service – there are hundreds to choose from,with hundreds of themes for everyone – even the family pet!
  5. How about an experience day out? Yes, some are very expensive, but we have found a great choice of all sorts of activities for under £50.

Other great ideas – and at very low cost too, are personalised presents. You can make sweets or biscuits, and handprint art is always gorgeous (Mummy loves it!), and make your own cards.

There must be something on this list for even the most awkward person to buy for. We would love to hear your unusual Christmas gift ideas, it is so much nicer to give a gift or voucher rather than just money.

This is a collaborative post.


  1. Great suggestions here…i’ve never thought to purchase a subscription service for someone as a gift! xx

  2. Great suggestions, a subscription box is always a nice idea. I like making hampers for people to fill with all their favourite things x

  5. My eldest is getting to adopt an animal this year as a gift from a grandparent. It’s a great idea. You’ve gathered some lovely ideas here.

  7. What fab gift ideas! I’m feeling like there are too many choices to pick this year for people. I just don’t know where to begin. Ilike the magazine subscription idea, and also like the sponsor an animal idea. I’m 24 but would love that myself, so might ask for that one!

  8. Love your suggestions. A subscription box is always welcome!
