Now we have that out of the way, let’s look at 5 unusual, unique and different gift ideas to gift a loved one for their next special occasion!

Personalized jigsaw

I got one of these for my parents last Christmas and also know my Uncle has been gifted a few and they absolutely love them. The one I got had my dog on it, so it’s super cute and also a fun thing to do as a family! A personalized jigsaw can make a great stocking filler and I think anything personalized is always a win.

Cuckoo Clock

I couldn’t not mention these in this list after the giveaway above, could I? If you have the money and are buying for a super special occasion, these cuckoo clocks would make beautiful gifts. Especially for someone who truly appreciates the details and the amazing craftsmanship that goes into making them.


I love crystals and I know more and more people are leaning into the power of crystals and using them as an alternative healing tool these days. Crystals make a great and unique gift because you can cater them to the person you’re buying for and what they need in their current stage of life. And if anything, they make great home decor!

A gift experience

There are so many amazing and unique gift experiences on the market these days. Sometimes an experience for two is better than a physical gift because you get to keep all the lovely memories you make during the experience as well. Perhaps a driving experience, a flying experience, steam train and afternoon tea or an animal experience at your local zoo!

A personalized hamper

I think a hamper of all little things that make your loved one smile is a great gift idea. It’s always going to be different, depending on who you buy for too! These type of gifts can really show your loved one how much you know them and include all the things that will make them laugh or smile.

If you’re struggling to think of gifts for that special someone, I hope this post helped! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway to potentially win a truly magical and unique gift!

  1. Wonderful post! I’d really like to give a gift experience for my father’s birthday this November but I’m not sure what it would be. I might need to search what activities we could do together 🙂 Thanks for sharing Jen x

  2. Great post! Thank you for sharing these gift ideas! I always struggle to come up with unique gifts for birthdays so I’ll definitely consider these next time! I really like the sound of the gift experiences as they would be very fun!

  3. A cuckoo clock is such a cool and unique gift that I never really thought of! A personalised jigsaw is so fun too – I’ve seen so many people get them so I might have to get one too! Great post! 😀

  4. I’ve always wanted a cuckoo clock. I used to love hearing my nan’s friend’s clock when we used to visit her when I was little.

  5. Love all these ideas! Gift experiences are my favourite as I love to give people time and exciting things to do rather than material items. Those clocks are so cute too x

  6. Love these ideas! I have my dad’s 60th birthday coming up and I am totally out of ideas! The cuckoo clock would be such a unique present! Looking for some experiences to gift him that he can do back home in Italy. Also, the hamper, sounds like a great idea! x

  7. Speaking of gift experiences, my husband’s birthday is on July 24 so for part of his birthday gift, I made an appt for a floatlife experience in a deprivation tank filled with essential oils and bath salts. It’s really relaxing and feels like you’re floating on a cloud. Also, it was something he’s never done before and I wanted to get him something that he wouldn’t otherwise get for himself. I also got him some locally made Pokémon themed bath bombs!
