The gift giving season might be behind us, but that doesn’t mean that we need to stop showering attention and gifts on others. Whether it is someone’s birthday, a get-well gift, or just a gift for no reason, there are numerous options to choose from.
In fact, it can be a bit challenging to choose a present for someone when faced with so many options. This is why we decided to ask Recycled Firefighter, an upcycling manufacturer about their top picks of interesting gifts that will certainly draw attention.
For a Lego enthusiast in your life, there really isn’t a better gift than a set of Lego blocks. If you think they have enough, you clearly don’t know the mind of a Lego aficionado.
Double points if you know another interest of theirs and you can get them a related Lego set. Anything from Star Wars to Harry Potter to engineering to the sitcom Friends has a licensed Lego set. Way to kill two birds with one stone.
This might be a cliché gift, but clichés exist for a reason. Some people genuinely love candles and everything about them. If the person you’re buying a gift for is one such person, they will certainly know to appreciate it, especially if you know their favorite scents.
Along the same lines, candle making kits can be a great way to help them discover a new hobby and still get a nice candle out of it.
Another somewhat niche gift could be an electronic gadget of some kind. The world is inundated by all kinds of interesting and useful gadgets. For instance, Bluetooth buds have never been cheaper and there’s never been a wider selection. A music or podcast enthusiast will certainly appreciate a gift.
On the other hand, buying an AirTag or a Tile tag for a person who keeps losing things like a wallet could not only be thoughtful, but also undoubtedly useful.
And if you’re late to save a friend from losing a wallet, there’s always an option of buying them a brand new wallet. Even if a person still has a wallet, we are often so used to our wallets, that we won’t even notice of worn out and tattered. If you have a person in your life who fits the bill, by all means, get them a new wallet.
Symbolically, buying someone a wallet, signifies prosperity and success, especially financial success. It typically holds valuable and important things to us. By transitive property, you’re saying to this person that they are important to you.
Perhaps it could seem a bit impersonal at first, but subscription boxes really boomed in recent years. And just like Lego sets, there are countless variants for different types of people.
If you really know the person you’re buying a gift to, there is probably a perfect box for them. Whether it is snacks, gadgets, survival gear, or something else entirely – this is a great option.
If you’re buying a gift for an adult, buying a nice bottle of alcoholic drink is always a good option. If the person you’re buying a gift to is into spirits, there are several great options, from artisanal gins and vodkas to small-batch bourbons and exotic whiskeys (such as Japanese varieties).
Cocktail lovers give you a lot more options. You can get them anything from cocktail equipment to interesting additions like bitters, to fancy glasses.
As you can see, there are plenty of options for an interesting gift, especially if you know the person well. Happy shopping.
