A subreddit to share unique gift ideas with others.
Rules define a subreddit. So let's start with the 8 golden rules of this subreddit first.
Make sure to submit unique gift ideas only. If it isn't unique it does not belong here.
Please flair your posts appropriately. AutoModerator already does quite a bit of automatic flairing, but it's not perfect, so please check that the flair is appropriate for your post.
Make sure to link to the product link directly if possible. Links from trustworthy sites like Amazon, Etsy, Ebay etc are preferred.
Due to this subreddit getting a lot of spam, if your account is very new and/or has very little karma, your submission/comment will be removed. If your post does get removed, you can send us a modmail and, if your post isn't spam and doesn't violate any other rules, we'll approve it.
No referral links without a warning in the comment or post title.
No ad hominem attacks or threats, including troll-feeding responses.
If you believe a post or comment is spam, breaks our rules, breaks reddit's rules, or is otherwise inappropriate, please click the "report" button and submit a report (with a reason, please).
And that's it for now. More rules may be added here as the community grows depending on what you guys think is important. But the most important thing is to keep submitting unique gift ideas here and stay awesome.
How to tell whether the gift is unique?
I would say that if you think that the gift you found out is unique, it most probably is unique. If you submit it here, you'll find out.
Self posts asking for gift ideas are also allowed here.
Just mention "Looking for a gift for my 'xyz'" in the title and mention the things he/she likes the most plus other details like the occasion and/or budget in the description. We could have a discussion about it and find the most suitable and cutest gift for that 'xyz' of yours :)
We all love gifts, don't we?? :)
Please send us a modmail if your post gets stuck in the spamfilter. We receive at least 20+ spam posts everyday and it's hard to go through each submission.

I hope this is ok to share here. 🙏
I just launched GiftsBee, a site that allows you to generate (via AI) a curated list of gift ideas after answering a few simple questions about the person you're shopping for.
From my testing, it works really well as long as you give some basic info on the persons interests, hobbies, etc. I hope this helps someone here! :)
It's completely free to use. As a disclaimer, I do get commissions if you click a link next to a suggested gift and purchase something from Amazon. However, you're obviously not required to purchase anything or even click the links. They help supplement the cost of utilizing AI to generate the ideas.
If the site becomes popular or gets a lot of use I plan on adding more features but for now it's pretty simple. Hope you enjoy!
I have a friend who lives abroad (in the US), we met through social media and eventually met in person about 5 years ago (it’s the only time we’ve ever met in person).
We started sending Christmas parcels to one another about 6 years ago and did so for about 3 Christmas’, then we agreed to send parcels to each other when I was in the US earlier last year (so she could send to my hotel, we could save on postage, customs etc.) but over the last 3 years or so, we’ve just gradually been talking less and less.
She’s now messaged me saying she has a parcel she wants to send us (me and another friend), but we just really don’t talk that much anymore, so we didn’t bother putting anything together. Plus with the cost of everything shooting up, as well as postage, and the fact I’m saving for a big holiday, I don’t really want to be spending all that money. I also don’t really want her to send the parcel, cause last time we had a £60 customs fee to pay for it.
I told her we didn’t have time to put one together and are trying to save money, so we haven’t got anything to send her. And because of that I also said, please don’t feel inclined to send anything (because we haven’t got anything to send). But now she’s come back saying, oh that’s alright, you can send something next time you’re here if you’d like instead. (My big holiday I’m saving for is in the US btw). I feel like it’s just a bit rude to expect it?
Like how do I approach this? We kind of don’t want to be doing the parcels anymore cause they’re just too expensive (I’m talking £50-£100 for things in the parcel, £30 postage and then another £60 potentially for customs).
Do I just flatly say, please don’t send it, we’re not putting a parcel together?
On top of being one of those who buys everything he wants, he also is very picky. Hes a car guy and owns more tools than anything. He also fishes, which has been my go to the past few years but theres nothing he doesnt have for that now either.
He doesnt drink. He wont wear a watch. He isnt the outdoorsy bushcrafty type. doesnt play video games. Wont go on long trips.
Im at a loss. Looking to spend up to $300
I want to get some inspiration.
I attended a Christmas gathering of some friends, we all agreed to participate in a $30 bad Santa KK. This is the KK where you buy a non-gender specific gift to the value of $30, you get given a number at random to select a gift that can then be stolen by someone else. My gift contribution was a salad bowl from a well known brand which equated to $34.95
The gift I ended up with was - $4.50 bath bomb, $10 bath salt, and a $3 pink pair of socks that the person admitted was a regift from their Mom. I estimate the spend was no more than $20. I attempted to give the gift away to a female in the group (without anything in return) but there was no interest in it even as a gesture. I thought the etiquette was implied to purchase a gift the minimum value, and regifted wasn’t socially acceptable for a voluntary KK which other member of the group adhered to.
I know it may sound petty of me, but I feel as though I have been duped. Should I just accept that I got a shit gift? Can I ask the person to exchange it?
I literally have no use for these items and have to send them straight in the bin.
Okay so me and my girlfriend have been dating for about a month and I want to get her something meaningful for Christmas. I talked to her sister and she recommended I get her a necklace (she prefers gold more than silver). The problem is I know absolutely nothing about jewelry and as embarrassing as it sounds I’m sort of on a budget. I just want to get something that she doesn’t have to pretend to like and she’ll actually wear. Any suggestions are appreciated 🙏.
Trying to shop for my boyfriend, already got 3 Sporty shirts from good brands. I'll also get some of his favourite chocolates.
Any ideas? Please share.
Some ideas: PS4 Controller (a little out of budget at this point though, but still willing to get)
Cologne is off the list bc I gave one to him for his bday.
Help! I’ve ordered a few sets of lingerie as a gift for him (but for me to wear) but now I’m thinking I should get some underwear for him as well. The pair of boxers I gave him for his birthday looked great but they were cheap and not very comfortable for him. I found the site mackweldon.com and the boxers there look pretty nice. All this to ask, is a couple pairs of $30-ish boxers a good gift for a boyfriend?
I'm buying a restaurant gift card for Christmas for a mentor of mine. I'm not sure whether I should get her a gift card for a restaurant I know she goes to regularly but is fairly casual or whether I should get her a gift card for a more upscale restaurant group that would be more of a "treat yourself" type thing, and that would have multiple restaurants at different price points that the gift card could be used at. Opinions would be welcomed!
Im struggling to find my father a presents for Christmas. If he needs anything he typically just buys it for him self and doesn't really give any hints on what he wants. Really at a lost on what to get him this year. Open to any ideas. He's one of those old crappy men.
I’m shopping for Xmas for my boyfriend’s sons (9 and 7 years). They are really active, love their sea scooter. What’s a good gift for a kid who likes sea scooters? It would be awesome if it was also something their dad could enjoy with them. He is really involved in their play, it’s adorable. Happy spend ~$450.
They also love golf, skiing, soccer, etc.
I kinda went overboard because i made small and bis boxes, gift socks and two letters in a bottle, what do you think?
It might be possible to avoid the crowds by shopping at antique stores offering selections of small items.
Stores may want to sell those small items at discounts to clear-out the slower selling items.
Stores may offer a choice of wall-hanging items - that is, walls might be those empty spaces to fill with such things as art, vintage ADs, and many other types of wall hangings.
Interested in retro-trends? Antique stores might just have actual decades-old items.
My class is doing Secret Santa this year and the budget is 20$. I got a girl I really don't know well. She is quite basic - likes girly things. I don't know about any hobies or likes and dislikes of hers except that she's a dancer. I want to make the most of the small budget. I'm imagining something small + a couple of snacks in a box but I'm at a loss. Any ideas?
Just curious, what gift did you ever get that was not necessarily sentimental, but you ended up loving it anyway? For me, I can remember when I was younger, an aunt bought me the first book from the series of unfortunate events collection. Being around 10 I was not too thrilled, however years later out of boredom I ended up picking it up and loving it and reading the whole series. Any similar stories?
What is an appropriate amount to spend on 4 year old granddaughter. She is the youngest of 8.
Hello, my mum has been looking for a place to buy traditional Korean makgeolli bowls, I’m looking for any place in the UK or a website online if anyone knows. I would really appreciate any advice on where to find the gifts!
