5 Unique Gift Ideas that will Impress Your Loved Ones

5 Unique Gift Ideas that will Impress Your Loved Ones

With the holiday season in full swing, many people are looking to find the perfect gifts for their loved ones.

Believe it or not, the gift you give your loved ones can say as much about you as it does about them. The present you choose can tell its recipient that they are important to you, as welling as give them hints about your own personality. So, if you’re looking to make a good impression and foster strong relationships, picking out a random gift might not be the best idea.

When choosing the perfect gift, the number of choices can be overwhelming. So, it should come as no surprise that most of us head for the basics, like gift cards, chocolates, or wine. Those choices are perfectly fine, of course; but if you really want to wow your friends, how do you choose the best possible gift to give to your loved ones without getting frustrated?

Nobody wants to be known as the boring-gift-giver.

We simply want our loved ones to like the gift we have chosen. And it’s not impossible to do. These gifts do not even have to be expensive; but at the same time, you don’t want to settle for giving a paper clip and justifying it by saying it came from the heart. We want to find a balance—a gift that is affordable, yet positively unique.

In a few days, a lot of us might be rushing into the shopping malls to buy last-minute gifts, and if you are one of those who has no idea what to give, here are a few unique ideas for the special people in your life.

1. Craft Beer Tasting Kit

This unique gift is perfect to give to your dad, your brother, a friend, or literally anyone who is crazy about beer. This tasting kit comes with a reusable crate that serves as its basket, but may also serve other purposes. It comes with a tasting flight paddle, packs of beef jerky, cookies, and other food. Since handing over a wine bottle is so overrated these days, this tasting kit might just be a great alternative.

 2. Cobalt Pitchers and Glasses Set

Perfect for newlyweds or for a large family, these blue cobalt pitchers are hand-blown and eye-catching. Although not so uncommon, these dishes are not just useful for everyday life, but make for attractive home decor. Maybe it’s time to ditch the boring, clear pitchers and glasses, and replace them with the new Cobalt Classic set.

3. Pearl Jewelry

Everyone loves to receive jewelry, but receiving gold or silver necklaces is not that surprising or interesting anymore. A great alternative is pearls. Pearl necklaces, earrings, or rings are some of the options you can choose from. A great thing about pearls is that they come in different colors. For those who prefer the minimalistic style, black or white pearls may be just right. However, for those with more playful personalities, there are lavender or pink pearls as well.

4. Wooden or Antique Sculptures and Furniture

In today’s world, every nook and cranny is filled with modern-themed furniture and décor that has a touch of highly-advanced technology. Sometimes, the rustic and antique look is ignored and undermined. However, if you have a loved one who enjoys the beauty of antiques and rustic objects, get them a gift that will beautify their homes even more. Since decor incorporated with modern technology features is now becoming quite typical, a great way to surprise your loved ones would be to give them something rustic or antique.

5. Eco-friendly Jewelry and Fashion Items

We’ve all been hearing about how Mother Earth is slowly dying. We’ve also seen, all over the media, how material things from the fashion industry are greatly affecting our world in a negative manner. With that in mind, a lot of environmentalists and eco-friendly communities have been encouraging people to purchase items that do not harm the environment. In response to this, some artists have created eco-friendly jewelry, which could be perfect for the green lover in your life. Ranging from eco-friendly bangles and necklaces to eco-friendly totes and sling bags, these things do not just protect the environment from further harm, they also offer a sense of unique fashion style—a trend that is slowly rising.

These are only some of the many unique gift ideas out there. But before deciding which gift ideas to go for, always remember to initially determine who you’re giving it to. You may first want to ask the questions: Can they use it? Will it fit their personalities? Is the price worth it? (Just so you don’t waste money buying something that will be useless to them or poison to their eyes).

It does not matter if the gift is on the lower side of the spectrum. If it is beautifully unique, then go for it. Give them something they have never received before. Go for something unique, but interesting. So long as these gifts are picked out with the best intentions and straight from the heart, you’re good to go.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
