Unique Christmas Gifts For Those On Your List!

November 21, 2017


Erin Schrader

I think we can all agree that we find ourselves in a little bit of a Christmas buying rut from time to time. What I mean by that is we can have a tendency to purchase the same item(s) over and over and over again! A throw for your sister! A candle for your friend! Lotion for your co-worker! And the list of our go-to gifts for every year continues. This year I challenge you to spice things up a bit and think a little outside of the box. I rounded up some fun and unique gift items for everybody on your list, all at Bloomingdale’s, which is offering FREE Shipping + FREE Returns for everybody from now until 12/20! There are gifts here for the men in your life [husband, brother, father, etc] to gifts for your hard to buy cubicle mate, hostess, sister and of course – best friend! Bloomingdale’s has over 500 gift ideas in their gift section right now that are sure to please, all at a great price [many of the finds today are under $20 while all except one are under $100!] Here are some of the ideas I’ve rounded up for you!

This Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffel is awesome for any person on your list who is on the go. I bought this for my husband as he has to travel sometimes for work and always takes a duffle bag for his night or two stays. I love this option so much because it’s less than $100, comes in several different color options and has a separate shoe storage space that allows you to pack your shoes without having to touch your clothes! Genius! Very durable and sure to please! Next up, this PRYNT Smartphone Instant Photo Printer which is SUCH a fun gift for those photo takers on your list! I bought this for myself because I am constantly snapping iPhone pictures that I end up doing nothing with. It literally prints in seconds and leaves you with an adorable little photo that can also be used as a sticker or made into a collage for your photo books! They sell these Prynt Zink Sticker Paper Pack – 40 Sheets for an added refill! The coolest part? You never add more ink! Simply charge the printer when the battery is running low and that’s the only “maintenance” you have to do! I am sure we all have those people in our lives who can never seem to know where they set their keys, phone, etc. Give them the most beneficial gift on the planet, this ORBIT Key Finder. They simply attach this small Bluetooth device to the items they can never keep track of and then, next time it’s lost you use the app to make your lost item beep and track down where it is. You can now put a price on peace of mind – it’s $30. Next on the list of people to buy for, and probably my favorite type of people, dog lovers. I’m sure you have one or two of these in your life. Surprise them with these fun Meri Meri Canine Cookie Cutters and they can bring their love of pups to the kitchen! For under $20, these make for a fun hostess or co-worker gift! Because practical items can still be a good thing, I chose both this The North Face® Salty Dog Beanie and The North Face® Etip Gloves for any guy on your list. These beanie comes in several colors and has an inside lining to keep the wind out. These gloves are awesome because while they aren’t super thick, they are very warm and allow the person wearing to use their devices while on.Bring a little emoji love to your Christmas gifts this year with these Sparrow & Wren Emoji Mug‘s that have a face for every situation. Only $8 which makes for an easy to grab and give gift! Add this awesome USB drink warmer and you have a complete gift for those coffee lovers in your life!  Now, for those who can never seem to make up their mind and also have a love for art – these Indecisive Colored Pencils will bring a smile and some color to their life! Gym or nap, water or wine – the world is at their fingertips, literally. Back to the men on your Christmas list – I picked up this Crosley Radio Cruiser Turntable for Shawn along with his beloved Dr. Dre vinyl record to add a little pizzazz to our household. This record player can literally be taken anywhere with you [super lightweight and carries like a briefcase] which makes it easy to quickly become the life of the party. Next on my record list – this Tom Petty Greatest Hits collection! If you are in need of some easy stocking stuffer ideas, consider one of these: this set of Calvin Klein Cotton Classics Boxer Briefs, Pack of 3Sparq Sparq’s Original Soapstone Whiskey Rocks, Set of 12, Kikkerland Phone Lens Kit and/or these Happy Socks Men’s Argyle Dress Socks.
To finish things out, we’ll end with a few female friendly options – we all love a good lipgloss and this MAC Lipglass gets awesome reviews, comes in a ton of colors and is under $20! If you can’t give up your beloved candles, don’t worry – I’ve got you covered there. Try either one of these and I promise, your nose will not be disappointed – Voluspa Maison Blanc “Pink Citron” 2 Wick Printed Tin Candle and/or Paddywax Ocean Tide & Sea Salt Candle. For a few little stocking stuffer ideas, consider this Ice Cream Headphone Audio splitter [awesome for plane rides!], initial catchall tray, or this quirky little cosmetics case And that complete’s this roundup of unique gifts for those who are tricky to buy for on your list this year!
