Unique Holiday Gifts

After doing this blog thing for numerous years, I've put together multiple gift guides for various holidays. Back in 2012, I included a few items for her and items for him. And in 2013, I had funky gifts under $100, under $50 and under $25. But last year I went for more of a girl's girl gift guide featuring cardigan sweaters, marble cutting boards, faux fur slide slippers and lip tease mugs!

But this year I wanted to feature some items that I thought might be a bit more unique. So it's certainly not your typical holiday gift guide, but I'm sure you'll find something on this list that you'll love. And please let me know in the comments below if you have any of these already!

Phone Loops
Talk about the best thing ever invented! I'm sure you guys are just like me -- always on your phones (even when I don't want to be). With the help of Phone Loops, I no longer have to worry about dropping my phone. The stylish straps come in either a Ninja Loop version or a Petite Loop version (that's more like a wristlet). The customizable loops keep your phone secure. Calling all bloggers: you can put your blog's name or URL on your own loop. Chic advertising!

Spray Perfect
Remember when I told you guys all about spray on nail polish back in July? Well I wasn't kidding -- I really do like this stuff! So big yes to Spray Perfect, especially with their awesome two for $20 deal (plus base and top coat). Just spray it on and watch it dry in under a minute.

Lovely Beards
Here's a great gift for the special dude in your life! If you like a guy with facial hair, then you probably want to keep that hair well groomed. Lovely Beards has a great bourbon scented beard oil and a nectarine mint beard balm that's made with 100% organic oils and natural ingredients. Both are great for grooming and conditioning and come in scents like black pepper, mandarin cedarwood and even gingerbread. Don't you think this would make a great gift set?

Glamping Hub
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm all about glamping. To be around nature but to feel comfort is the best way to go. So if you enjoyed my Glamping Hub post about my stay in Tulum, then you'll definitely want to gift a Glamping Hub gift card to someone special on your list. Honestly, a staycation or vacation is usually at the top of my wish list for any and every holiday.

Got some cooks in your life? Well I know they'll love these next two holiday gifts. The CalPure California Extra Virgin Avocado Oil should be the starting point for all your meals this season. The oil is cold pressed and uses California Hass avocados, which we all know are super hard to find (or quite expensive) these days. With hints of sweetness and butter, this non-GMO and gluten free avocado oil is ideal for dipping, drizzling, grilling, spreading and the like.

Clever Cutter
While you're getting the pan ready with the avocado oil, you can easily chop up your food in seconds with the Clever Cutter, which is both a knife and a cutting board in one! The stainless steel blades are sharp enough to cut any food, with the addition of a stable cutting board.

When I got my latest Android phone it came with a free Samsung Gear VR. I've only used it once, but I do think it's something that guys would really enjoy. And the new Oculus by Facebook is probably going to be the ultimate virtual reality toy. I know that it really immerses you into a video game or movie world simply by putting on a headset over your face.

Am I the only one who didn't know that you could customize M&M's now? If you look closely at the M&M's in this gift guide, then you'll see that I added my holiday card photo from last year. They have so many holiday decor options and clip art for pretty much every occasion. I really think these cute little candies (which come in a variety of gift boxes) will be perfect for your family this season because you can personalize them and then enjoy eating them. Delish!

Incoco Nails
That's right -- more nail polish! Well, nail polish applique to be more precise. I bet you can tell that I hate putting on nail polish the old fashioned way. So if I'm not spraying them on, then I'm sticking them on with these Incoco nail art designs. I think the winter magic collection, which features designs like holiday treasures, merry mint, Christmas magic, berry glitz  and New Year cheer are perfect stocking stuffer gifts for your besties. They only take a few minutes to put on; you don't have to worry about them drying; are made from real nail polish and lasts for days.
