Creative Christmas Gift Ideas - Unusual and Unique Christmas Presents

Are you seeking inspiration for creative Christmas gift ideas?

As the saying goes, "It's the thought that counts." So when it comes to being creative with your gift giving at Christmas time, you usually have to think long and hard to come up with a gift that is unique to the recipient and his or her tastes. Below are some ideas that I hope you will find helpful.

Having a treasured photo printed onto a t-shirt or sweatshirt makes a distinctive and creative Christmas gift idea, whether it's a photo of a favorite child, dog or cat. You can even do this yourself at home by purchasing plain shirts and using special t-shirt transfer paper.

Simply print the photo onto the paper and iron onto the shirt. This is easy to do and always appreciated by the one who receives it. Of course, you can have a photo printed onto a mug or even have it printed as a repeat pattern on a tie for a proud Dad to wear to the office!

Another choice for a favorite family photo might be to have it turned into a real work of art by having it printed onto canvas and framed. The most creative Christmas gift idea I have found for a special photo is to use it to make an Andy Warhol type of Technicolor print with four different color themes. This is more expensive but well worth it - and a truly unique gift.

If you are looking for a creative gift for your child's teacher, "wrap" the gift in a really nice tote bag that the teacher can use during the school year. Just be sure that it will be large enough to hold file folders, papers, etc.

My grandchildren really want to believe in Santa Claus, but they know that Mom and Dad, Grandma and Grandpa are the ones who buy the gifts they ask for. I tell them that we just pass the Christmas list on to Santa and he's the one who provides them; they're not totally convinced, though.

I found a really creative Christmas gift idea - a personal letter from Santa in a special package which is sent to only the good girls and boys on his list. There are a few options to choose from, depending on your budget, and will convince the little ones who still want to believe that there really is a Santa Claus!

An unusual and creative Christmas gift idea for the people on your list who have absolutely everything is to send them a gift basket containing Champagne, caviar and smoked salmon - along with many other delicious goodies. You can choose from Dom Perignon, Veuve Cliquot, Roederer or, the most expensive - Cristal, which comes complete with mother-of-pearl spoon and a dish for the caviar, creme fraiche and blinis. Luxury personified!

You can create your own gift baskets to reflect the tastes of the recipient, such as making a home spa basket containing a really nice robe and slippers, eye mask and towel. Add some good quality aromatherapy candles, lotions, bath beads and anything else that you think would be appreciated, and arrange them in the basket.

You can create a gift basket for a crafter by filling it with items she (or he) will use but doesn't already have. You don't even have to use a basket! A new sewing box for someone who makes her own clothes could be filled with notions such as fancy buttons, needles, fabric, etc, and this makes a very creative Christmas gift.

Buy a new wok and fill it with Asian sauces, cooking utensils, etc. for the cook; then place back in the box and wrap - imagine the surprise when the pan is taken out of the box and the extra gifts are discovered! Talking about creative Christmas gift ideas - now that's being creative!
