There is never a shortage of Christmas gift ideas for those we love; there are a lot of great gift ideas to consider, too. In this post, however, we’re going to focus on the more unusual gift ideas that are not only thoughtful but will also make the recipients happy. Let’s get started, shall we?
Kindle (and Thousands of Books)
Most of us love to read and there is no better Christmas gift to get loved ones who are just as avid about reading as we are, than the Kindle. The 2016 version of Amazon’s Kindle is actually more affordable than ever. It comes with an e-ink screen that makes reading books on it very comfortable. It is also very compact and light, which means it can be carried anywhere without adding bulk to your bags.
Here’s the twist: don’t just stop at buying the new Kindle. You can actually add thousands of free books to the new e-reader by adding an Amazon Prime subscription to the mix. Amazon now offers access to a lot books – including some of the most popular titles in recent years – for free to all Amazon Prime subscribers.
Combined, the Amazon Kindle and a subscription to Amazon Prime will be the best gifts your loved ones will ever receive. Oh, did I tell you that the Kindle is available in black and white?
Derby Skate Sets!
Derby skates used to be very popular and they are definitely making a comeback this year. If you have loved ones who used to love to skate when they were younger, getting them a nice pair of derby skates may just be what they need to remember the good old days. The fact that derby skates are getting more popular today also means there are plenty of discounts and special offers to go through before making your purchase.
Again, adding a little twist to the gift will make it even more special. You can, for instance, find out about a local roller derby place and grab a couple of memberships to add to the gift too. There are plenty of places that offer roller derby games and live music on certain days, so this twist should also be easy to execute.
DIY Kits: Make Your Own Macarons Kit
DIY kits always make interesting presents, but the one to get this year is the DIY Make Your Own Macarons kit. This kit is available from different brands and manufacturers, but they basically include the same set of items. The kit will include everything you – and your loved ones – need to make macarons from scratch.
The best part about this DIY kit is that you can use it again and again. It is a gift that keeps on giving, since you can take the set out and make tasty macarons anytime you want.
These are just some of the more out-of-the-box ideas to get you started. Do you have your own gift ideas you’d like to share? Be sure to leave them in the comments below.
