When you are putting together your Christmas gift list this year why not stray from traditional or commercial gift idea and go for something truly unique and alternative. It always feels good to give the one gift a Christmas get together that everyone talks about, and that everyone will remember. So if you are looking to be unique in your Christmas gift giving this year we have come up with some really unique ideas for your convenience.
For starters we suggest giving the gift of a really unique experience with a prepaid trip on a hot air balloon.
Very few people take a ride on a hot air balloon, yet it is one of the most peaceful and serene things one can experience. This type of Christmas gift will bring life into the party, as everyone loves the idea of hot air balloons, but no one ever really thinks of taking a trip on one; let alone gifting a trip on one as a Christmas gift.
Everyone gives Christmas cards with the gifts they give, but for a really unique alternative give a message in a bottle. You can either purchase a really fancy bottle and create the message yourself, or there are various online companies that will deliver the message for you after you fill it in online.
An out of this world idea for an alternative Christmas gift is custom night sky artwork by Indigo Night. All you do is provide a special date to the person you are gifting and Indigo Night will calculate where the constellations, stars, and planets were all lined up and then recreate the night sky of that date on a beautiful artwork print.
From personalized wine, chocolate, embossed roses, and other great personalized unique gift idea we have great a list that will turn heads at your next Christmas gathering.
