Some people are really hard to shop for. Not because they have no interests or hobbies, but because they seem to have everything already and it’s hard to come up with something unique that’ll put a smile on their face. With only a few weeks left until Christmas, here at The Mama Maven we’ve rounded up some unique gifts for those people in your life that seem to already have everything. Happy Shopping!
For the kid who has “everything” – Holiday-themed decals from Wall Candy Arts
Instead of having kids make a gingerbread house, why not save on the calories and sugar and have them design one on their wall? Wall Candy Arts has a selection of Christmas-themed decals that can make any kids’ room, play room or even the living room festive for the holiday season. All you have to do is peel, stick and smooth with your hand. Aside from the yummy-looking gingerbread house they’ve also got other decals bursting with colors, such as snowmen, candy canes, holiday lights and a Christmas tree complete with candy, holy leaves, ornaments and more. These decals also make a cute background for holiday pictures. Best of all, once the holiday season ends, just peel and store for next year! Prices range from $22-$38.
These unique cotton napkins are handmade and are printed with letters from famous people, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Rudyard Kipling to their children. They not only look elegant at the dinner table, but are also great conversation starters. Some of the advice in the letters is certainly timeless (“Don’t worry about growing up. Don’t worry about anybody getting ahead of you”) and some of the advice is, um, interesting (“avoid pickled salmon and rolling on the grass at parks”). Either way, these napkins can provide loads of fun at the dinner table.
For the girl/tween who has “everything” – Girls’ Twinkle Toes Shoes from Skechers
Many girls love shoes. And many girls also love sparkly things. The Twinkle Toes shoes from Skechers are super-sparkly and ultra-colorful shoes for almost any occasion. They’ve got a large collection which includes boots, running shoes and more. The burst of colors and the glitzy sparkles can jazz up any outfit and they are sure to be the talk of the classroom. As a bonus, the box the shoes come in is really pretty and has a top that’s attached – perfect for storing knick-knacks and other things girls love to keep. You can purchase shoes from the Twinkle Toes collection here. Prices are from $25-$58.
For the parents/grandparents who have “everything” – The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts DVD (Collector’s Edition)
It’s not always easy to shop for parents and grandparents; there’s only so many gardening decor, golf accessories and history books you can get. A really unique gift idea is a 6-disc Collector’s Edition of the Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts. This is a DVD collection of twelve complete and unedited celebrity roasts roasts with comedians Jackie Gleason, George Burns, Milton Berle, Bob Newhart, Dom DeLuise and many, many more. Some of those being roasted are Sammy David Jr., Lucille Ball and Don Rickles. I watched the first two roasts in the collection: Bob Hope and Johnny Carson. They were hysterically funny, very well written and impeccably delivered, as expected of these comedic giants. This DVD set is packed with lots of bonus features and makes a great gift for all fans of comedy. You can buy the collection here for $41.35.For the dad/husband who has “everything” – Signature Neckties
A necktie is something most men will wear either often or occasionally so it always makes a great gift. These elegant silk ties make more than a statement. A celebration of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, these ties feature the signatures of the people who signed them, such as the Founding Fathers. The ties come in red (Constitution signatures) or blue (Declaration of Independence signatures).
