Brainstorming on Cool Birthday Gifts and Unusual Presents

Are you trying to think up some ideas for cool birthday gifts?

A mind boggling dilemma - people to this day still struggle on what to get a person for their birthday. The truth is, there is no standard definition of 'cool' or the perfect birthday present. It all depends on the person and on perspective.

A birthday gift is a gift that a person may cherish, not only because of what value the items hold, but also because of the circumstances it was obtained under. Many people feel that the more expensive the gift, the better it is. This is not the case, and is just a commonly believed myth.

Many people are actually attracted to the gifts that cost a lot, such as a car, an expensive watch, or brand name designer style jeans. However, there are many more people who decide to look at the intrinsic value of a birthday gift. Such people are usually content with an inexpensive gift that has a meaning rather than an expensive gift that holds no emotional or intrinsic value - the former could be described as "cool birthday gifts" more than the latter.

Needless to say, picking a good present or cool birthday gift for someone definitely entails knowledge of that person. A person who is a recovering alcoholic should not be given a bottle of Grey Goose for their birthday, and likewise people that are lactose intolerant should not receive chocolates that are rich in milk and other ingredients that include lactate and other resistant objects.

Sometimes, a person might give a friend a birthday present that they would not want under certain circumstances as a joke. For example, an Indianapolis Colts fan might receive a New Orleans Saints jersey from a friend as a joke referring to the Super Bowl.

Sometimes, the best cool birthday gifts can be original gifts. Many people who do not bother to get original gifts usually end up relying on buying generic gifts, such as a generic gift for a mom, dad, or an uncle. However, those same people may want and appreciate an original gift from the heart.

A person looking to surprise a loved one with a present may make a portrait of them using pastels or something original along those lines. Another original present may be a photo album that is predominantly filled with pictures of the gift recipient.

Such a person may like original gifts. The giver of the gift can compile a set of photos with them and the recipient and frame them in a colorful manner. They may also add certain inside jokes that only they and nobody else would understand. Such a present may be more valuable than a gift obtained with money, because a price cannot be put on memories and memories cannot be taken, while many gift objects can be bought multiple times in multiple ways.

Indeed, original presents are probably the best cool birthday gifts.

A person also may allow their children to add certain images and creative drawing to go along with the present. Nevertheless, if one is sure about a present that a person has been salivating about for a long time, they should express no hesitation when it comes to buying it as a cool birthday gift. Buying a great gift can be easy, only if you make it personal.

In this situation, buying for a person based on what they are could work. An example is men and anything that can simplify their lives. Or the gift may just be an item that hangs on a wall, such as a framed tile waiting to be filled. Either way, the recipient should feel appreciated and loved.
