Unique Christmas gifts you haven’t thought of yet

How to find a unique gift that won’t be forgotten by January.

Let’s just say it like it is: finding a unique Christmas gift is hard. Seriously. Trying to luck on that unusual something that will not only stand out from the crowd, but will be remembered for years to come is by no means an easy feat. It doesn’t take long for the joy of giving to become a chore. That’s where we come in.

As well as our Christmas gift guides for everyone you can think of – your mum, your father-in-law, and yes, even your cat – we’ve hand selected the most unusual Christmas gifts for every person in your life you need to buy for. Except for your cat. Every gift for your cat is, by definition, unusual.
