8 Unexpected Places to Find Unique Holiday Gifts this Season
Let’s admit it: we all have a family member who’s impossible to find a perfect gift for. Whether you’re stressing over what to buy for them or getting anxiety about the inevitable crowds at the mall, the holidays can be overwhelming. The best way to get inspiration for gifts is to walk around and see what’s out there, and because walking through the mall is nearly impossible come December, we’ve put together a list of unexpected places to find holiday gifts this season so that you can actually get a chance to enjoy shopping this season. You’re welcome.
This is the place to visit if you’re in desperate need of gifting ideas with everything from home decor to beauty accessories. Their online concierge will help you with ideas, just ring the bell and get to shopping.
If there’s one place that defines the phrase walk through it’s Ikea. It might take you an hour, but surely you’ll find a couple things to gift (for decent prices, too) and the best part is there’s lots of space.
Anthropologie has everything from furniture and dishware to clothes and makeup. If you can’t find something here to gift, you’re out of luck.
With holiday parties every weekend, days fill up fast over December, but luckily, Amazon is here for you. You can browse for gifts while in the comfort of your own bed or on your commute home and get it delivered to your doorstep. They even offer a wrapping service for an extra price to make your life that much easier, and, if you waited until last minute, there’s always amazon prime.
Mouth is the gift everyone actually wants — food. You can either order expertly curated gift boxes to gift or have some fun browsing the site and make your own, but regardless it comes delivered in a beautiful package, special for the holidays.
In a lot of ways, the gift you give someone speaks volumes to what you think of them. You know what they say, the more generic the gift, the more distant the relative. Uncommongoods (if you didn’t already guess from the name), is a great place to find unique and original gifts so that no one reads into what you’re trying to tell them by gifting them their third Body Shop gift set that year. Plus, they have sections on their website dedicated to gift ideas for everyone from girlfriends to best friends and even pets!
Urban Outfitters sells everything from bedding to records and, if you’re on a budget, their online store has gift guides to help you come up with awesome gift ideas under a bracket of prices (under $12, under $25, and under $50) that won’t break the bank.
Kikkerland is odd and quirky. If you have no idea what to get that random guy from your office whose name you (regrettingly) pulled from secret Santa, this is the place to shop.
