5 unusual Christmas gift ideas

Updated: Dec 17, 2021

1. The stationery lover

If you have a friend who is crazy about stationary like my friend Carrie, then instead of a highlighter and a notebook, why not treat them to this unusual Christmas gift. The pencil sharpening necklace or earrings come in two different sizes. A full pencil sharpening and a half pencil sharpening. The sterling silver pencil shaving necklace and earrings have an 18k gold plated rim. These quirky little pieces will be admired by all.

2. Something for the tea lover

Ok, so over the years, you have bought them a fancy teapot, teacups, tea from all over the world and even a funky loose tea infuser. Now you have run out of tea ideas.

Guess what? You have just found the perfect gift. Gaia’s charming Amber Teapot Necklace and ring are handcrafted from natural amber with a sterling silver handle, spout and lid. It is paired with two little miniature cups in a chic sterling silver box tray.

As every single Amber Teapot Necklace and ring are handcrafted, each amber stone is in its natural form and every pendant and ring is a unique shape and colour. Therefore you can be sure, that no one else will ever own an identical pendant or ring to yours. You can find out more about amber here.

3. The birds and the bees

Well, we all heard about the birds and bees, however, this is not that kind of a gift. These unusual Christmas gift ideas will completely take the recipient by surprise. The cute little birds courting on a branch, or a honeybee resting on honeycomb are just some of Gaia’s little gems. We all know that someone obsessed with bees or someone who knows all the birds and feeds them all through winter. Instead of a bee tea towel or a bird feeder, how about a gift that will represent their love of these creatures and remind them of your generosity and kindness.
