Unique Gifts for Everyone!


I am always on the lookout for unique gifts for my friends and family.  I am not a fan of gift cards because most of the time I find them to be very impersonal and it's as if you are saying, "I didn't want to take the time to find something you really like so here's a gift card, find something yourself." I know that's really not always the case because I do enjoy getting a gift card from time to time but not all of the time. My mother in law got us a gift card to our favorite restaurant for Christmas and that was awesome because we LOVE to eat there and she also bought me one to my favorite clothing store as well. This was ok with me because she took the time to get the gift cards to places that we really like but sometimes I think we overuse gift cards and it's unfortunate because there are places like Zazzle where you can get personalized gifts for everybody you need to buy for!!!

I think Teachers are extremely hard to buy for because we don't know them on a personal level so I love Zazzles selection of teacher gifts!!  They offer everything from totes to mugs and even t-shirts.  Nearly everything they offer can be personalized so you are giving your childs teacher a unique gift that they will actually use!  I remember when my daughter was in 1st grade, she came home and says to me, "Mom! Every single kid in the class got our teacher a candle for Christmas!!!" LOL How unfortunate but honestly, sometimes when you don't really know someone, it's hard to guess what they would enjoy receiving as a gift!!!

Our children are really into gadgets these days as well so I was super impressed with their selection of accessories!  We got all 3 of the older kids iPods for Christmas and Zazzle has an awesome selection of iPod Touch Cases!!  You can choose one for anybody on your list or if you don't find one that you like, you can create your own!!!!!

Grandparents are another group of people who we find it hard to buy for!!!  What do you buy people who already have everything?! Photo Gifts are an awesome alternative to another tie or ornament! This year we bought my mother-in-law a personalized necklace and a canvas portrait of the children. I thought this was so much more personal and I know these are things she will enjoy much more than our typical gifts!!!!

Who do you find it most hard to shop for?!?!
