Coming up with unique gift ideas can be tough. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or another occasion, you want to make sure the gift you buy for the receiver is as meaningful and unique as possible, right? Below, we have some ideas that could help you out – even if you just use them for inspiration.
Take a look and you should end up with a ton of new, unique ideas that your loved one will find meaningful!
If this is a gift for a partner, a unique hand casting can make the perfect gift. It won’t be a surprise, as you’ll need to find a hand casting studio and make an appointment. You’ll then both go along and have both of your hands cast into a beautiful ornament that you can keep forever! There are kits that allow you to do this at home, but you can ensure beautiful, professional results at a studio.
How about a photoshoot? You could book a family photoshoot and get some amazing pictures – this is great if you have kids, they don’t stay young forever! You could even invest in a special kid’s photoshoot with a theme, such as mermaids or pirates. Then frame pictures as a gift, or create a beautiful photo album containing both professional and candid images that you’ve taken yourself. You could even write captions to make the gift even more meaningful!
A Custom Portrait
A custom portrait can be a great piece for your living room, bedroom, or just about any room you’d like to decorate. It can be tough to find an amazing custom portrait artist, so make sure you do your research and ask for recommendations to find the right one for you. Styles will vary, so find the right style for your tastes (or the recipient’s tastes).
Personalised jewelry is a meaningful gift that can last forever and be worn every day. Providing you select a high quality material and jeweler, you won’t have to worry about low quality jewelry and breakages. Do make sure you do your research, as you can end up with jewelry that has shoddy clasps, poor personalisation, and even jewelry that turns out to be a cheaper metal and ends up looking worn after a short while.
A Day Out/Experience
A day out or experience can give you and your loved one a chance to explore somewhere new. Why not head to a town or city you’ve never been to before? This could be a great experience alone, but you could even plan to go to a concert or theatre show to top it off. An experience can be worth far more than an expensive gift!
A Handmade Scrapbook
Taking the time to complete a handmade scrapbook shows how much you care, and can be a great memento of your time with the other person. Include tickets to things you’ve seen and places you’ve been, pictures, song lyrics, pressed flowers, and anything else that means something to you.
