5 Unique Gift Ideas for Adults

No one wants to give generic and boring gifts.

May 22nd, 2021

No one wants to give generic and boring gifts. So if you’ve had enough of buying bottles of wine or chocolates for someone you care about, wow them with a unique gift. From gifts to unleash their inner creativity to experiences they’ll remember forever, you’re in the right place. Let’s look at some of the best unique gift ideas for adults.

Unique Kitchen Tools

Adulthood is many things, confusing, difficult and stressful – but it doesn’t have to be boring! Technology has gifted us with some incredible hacks, especially in the kitchen. From spiralizers to handy fruit bowls where you can separate your fruit, why not give that special someone a unique kitchen tool they won’t find in their local store. Here’s just some ideas:

  • Grilling baskets for kebabs
  • Avocado huggers
  • Pistachio sorting bowl
  • Himalayan salt shot glasses
  • Chopping boards that double as serving platters

Creative Gifts

We all have our own lives, and so much to juggle, from work to bills and family. This can often mean that a lot of us stop doing the things we love as adult life gets into swing. But receiving a gift like a custom paint by numbers set or jigsaw can remind us to get back to those activities we used to enjoy as a kid. Studies prove that doing things like painting or coloring in, which are known for being “kids” activities can lower stress levels and improve your mood, not to mention get you to spend some time away from screens.

If the person you’re buying for is already a creative person, then why not encourage them to tackle a new creative skill by buying them a set of calligraphy pens or oil paints? They’ll love the challenge by having somewhere new to channel their creative energy.

Custom Commissioned Art

Art makes an awesome gift, but even better is customized art. Think about your gift recipient’s interests and favorite things, and get one turned into art. You can find a local artist or even someone that they admire and commission them to create a piece. Not only will this be a highly personalized gift, but they’ll have the only one in the world.

A beverage and cigar set

Another unique and luxury gift idea can be a cigar and a beverage hamper. This idea will be perfect both for any smoker and those who want to try a cigar once. Stick to the celebrant’s favorite drink and pair it with a matching cigar. For example, legendary Romeo y Julieta cigars offer many types to pick from to go well with wines. They deliver a rich taste with a smooth body which will delight any aficionado. To pair with whisky or beer, you can take H. Upmann or Montecristo cigars, etc.

Personalized Jewelry

Customization can turn pretty much any generic gift into something unique and memorable. With things like jewelry, you can easily get an engraving done to level up your gift.

You can also get your hands on jewelry gifts that are still personal without getting an engraving done. Think about getting the lucky recipient a piece containing their birthstone or zodiac sign.


Experiences are a fantastic gift that will be remembered forever, and provide people with the opportunity to do things they never thought of previously. And there are experiences for every budget, so you don’t have to spend a fortune to give a unique gift when it comes to experiences. Here are some of the experiences that you could give:

  • Spa or beauty treatments
  • Pottery classes
  • Animal experiences like swimming with sharks
  • Go Karting
  • Cocktail classes
  • Escape rooms
  • Garden starters such as spray & grow mushroom kits
