Unique Holiday Gift Ideas

Every gift giver looks for it — surprise and glee when their gift is opened.  That beaming “wow” reaction is the best reward for all the time and effort you put into finding the perfect gift.

The holiday season seems to be the time when we forget the past, we forget the future and we focus on the present. And that focus can be a “on stage event” when it comes to opening the box — everyone in your family or friend group is watching the gift be opened … wondering, “Is this another ‘re-gift’ or truly something special?”

That’s a lot of pressure.

How can you give the right gift this holiday season?  We all know how it feels when we found the right gift?  But finding it can really be a challenge.  So here’s what to look for:

First, a great holiday gift says, “You’re on my list.” While this may seem to be a given, the reality is that every gift we give or get shouts “exclusivity” – it may not be an exclusive gift but if you got the gift, you are on an exclusive list.  Not everyone gets a gift – you have to “make the list.”   You might want to make Oprah’s list or Bill Gate’s list but you didn’t.  You made mine.  Oprah and Bill didn’t think of you. But I did. You’re on my list.

Second, a great holiday gift says, “I focused on you.” I gave up valuable time looking all over the web and the mall, driving circles in the parking lot looking for a space … for you. I gave up hard earned money. I took what I had and exchanged it for your gift.

Finally, a great holiday gift says something about the giver and the getter.  It says, “I thought about you. I know you.”

To help you find the perfect gift, grab your holiday gift list of people you want to “wow” and consider these unique holiday gift ideas about mailboxes and address plaques to help get you started:
