26 unique gift ideas for family and friends

This can be a way to go for classic gifts, depending on who you shop for holidays (for example, your grandmother or your child’s teacher). But what happens when you find out you bought your father the same sweater for the second year in a row? Check out this unique list of Christmas gifts to find an option that will leave an unforgettable impression. While some people think these gift ideas are unusual, we think they’re more creative than the boring findings you’ve given (and re-gifted) over and over again. These gifts, which are sure to be an unexpected hit on Christmas morning, are perfect for everyone on your list: your children, your parents, your friends, you understand the idea. If you’re looking for a gift to surprise even your best friend (an essential oil diffuser bracelet) or a sweet way to show your other important love (a personalized necklace), these best choices are the best way to surprise and enjoy. After this Christmas, you will never come back to give him the basics like ties, sweaters and gloves.
