That's right. Unusual Christmas gifts. When we are growing up, the one thing that we learn about giving gifts at Christmas is that the person who receives the gift should want it. When we were kids, we were asked about what we wanted for Christmas. As we grow older, become adults, and are now saddled with the responsibility for doing the shopping at the holiday, we might find it stressful just trying to figure out what someone wants.
One thing that we're conditioned to not do is ask another adult, 'What do you want for Christmas?' Unless, of course, that adult is a family member or spouse. Then it's okay.
Step away from the gift cards
Hey, you, standing there by the gift cards - step away from them. We've also become conditioned to default to those annoyingly frustrating gift cards for the holidays. For starters, it's not personal in any way, shape, or form. When you give someone a gift card, you're basically telling them, 'I cared enough to get you something, but I didn't care enough to actually think about something you might like.'
A gift is meant to be about the thought, not the actual gift itself. If you know exactly what someone wants for a Christmas gift this year, then that's great. If not, however, then why not consider an unusual Christmas gift?
This year, when you are shopping for your boss or a coworker, how about getting a gumball machine? It's not everyday where you see someone with a gumball machine in their office or at their desk, but it is an incredible conversation piece.
Imagine having clients come into their office, maybe a little tense, or not sure that they want to do business with that person or the company. They see that gumball machine, it breaks out a soft chuckle, and they make a comment about having not seen one in a long time.
Even if the person whom you're giving the gift to isn't into gum, that doesn't matter. They can fill it with whatever they like and it will still be a conversation piece.
Christmastime is about being a kid again, even if it's only for a little while. Why not give that adult a small remote-controlled helicopter this year? They're easy to use and control and, while they may only give a few hours of enjoyment before it is taken over by the kids, it's a great unusual Christmas gift for this year's list.
