GIFTED | You can know someone like the back of your hand but that doesn’t always mean buying gifts for them is easy! My Mum is always easy to buy for. We have very similar taste in most things. My Dad is a bit of a pain because he never wants or needs anything. And my boyfriend? Well I’ve bought him every personalised and thoughtful gift under the sun in the past. So it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to think of unique gift ideas for him!
My boyfriend’s birthday was at the beginning of June and throughout the month of May, I was painstakingly trying to think of gift ideas for him. Which is where the inspiration for this guide came from. Have that person in your life that’s become impossible to buy for?
Here are some unique gift ideas to hopefully give you some inspiration!
Chattyfeet Royals Socks – £8.00 Each
Socks? You kidding me? Nope, I’m not. Sometimes simple is better and I don’t think anyone would expect socks with the Royal Family’s face on them. Chattyfeet sell a range of funky socks with different historical figures and famous faces – past and present – featured of them, all with punny as heck names. I’m currently obsessed with The Crown (I watched both seasons twice in 3 weeks) so these ones are right up my street at the moment! But if your loved one isn’t a Royal’s fan, no worries, there’s plenty of other designs to chose from!
Unique doesn’t always have to mean completely weird and “out there” gifts. Sometimes, the simple things are just as effective! I’m sure the men in your life wears shoes, right? And those shoes will have to be polished at some point. So how much more efficient can you get than their own little shoe polishing kit? This handy little kit includes handmade premium shoe polish, made with carnuba wax for maximum shine and comes with a handy little cleaning brush too. Most exciting gift? No. Useful and resourceful? Heck yes.
My boyfriend is obsessed with Formula 1 (and so am I now, thanks to him!) so these personalized Formula 1 books are the perfect gift for him. They’re something a bit different, personal and something I know he’ll love and not already have. But if Formula 1 isn’t your loved ones thing, In the Book have tons of beautiful personalized books which would make lovely gifts. From sports history, recipes, bibles, comics, novels and more!
The Exclusive Memorabilia website is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for something special for that person in your life who has everything. Of course Star Wars isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea but from football, boxing, Dr Who, Star Trek, Formula 1 and much more, they have a wide range of signed and exclusive memorabilia. This amazing poster is signed by Jeremy Bullock, who played Boba Fett in the original Star Wars movies and is truly a one of a kind gift!
Literary Galaxy have a ton of bookish themed gifts which are just perfect for the book lover in your life who you might not know what to buy for them! If I’m buying a gift for a book lover, I’m always reluctant to buy them actual books because you know how particular we can be about books. Plus you don’t want to risk them having already read it. But bookish gifts are a great alternative. Literary Galaxy have a range of these gorgeous ribbon bookmarks, inspired by books. Can you guess the story from this bookmark?
Literary Galaxy Acorn Necklace – £8.00
Inspired by The Cruel Prince, this cute acorn necklace would make a perfect gift! Super affordable and comes in a range of options, from a bronze chain (pictured above), black/brown suede cord, black faux leather cord and black velvet chokers. It comes beautifully presented on this printed card and in a sweet little star print bag!
I hope this guide has given you a few suggestions for the next time you have to buy for that person who has everything!
