5 unusual gift ideas for the woman in your life

Whether you’re buying gifts for a birthday, Mother’s Day, anniversary or for Christmas, the chances are that you struggle to come up with unique and unusual gift ideas.

It’s so easy to fall into the usual trap of buying your mom, wife, or girlfriend some chocolates or a bunch of flowers, but if you want to show her how much you care, consider these gift ideas instead…

Iced drinks maker

If your girlfriend or mom loves iced drinks, then you can’t go too far wrong with an iced drinks maker. There are tonnes of varieties on the market from brands including Slush Puppie, and the best part is that you can choose your own flavor combinations and come up with some totally unique tastes.

Even better, some varieties allow you to add alcohol so you can create slush cocktails – so delicious, and a favorite when hosting parties and girly get-togethers.

Religious jewelry

If your mom, wife, or girlfriend is religious, then buying her a piece of jewelry that honors her beliefs is a beautiful gesture.

There are so many options to consider, but for those who have Irish blood in them, Celtic cross jewelry is a popular choice.

Shop around and find a bracelet, necklace or pair of earrings that really mean something, and your loved one can feel good knowing that they have God (and your love!) at their side whatever life may throw their way.

Massage cushions

One of the hottest trends in novelty gifts right now is massage cushions – cushions that can actually give you a massage.

They may look unusual and they probably won’t be at the top of your girlfriend’s list, but they’re designed to soothe and relax those aches and pains and leave you feeling totally at ease.

If you’re always forced to give your girlfriend a massage at the end of a busy day, then this will save you time and keep your hands from going numb!

Scratch maps

If you love to travel with your partner, then a scratch map could be a gift idea to consider; it’ll be even better if you’re planning a surprise vacation at the same time.

Scratch maps allow you to show off where you’ve been in the world – once you’ve finished a trip, you can scratch it off on the map and decide where you want to go next.

Great for home offices and studies, these maps are now available in beautiful colors like rose gold which will match your interior.

Grow your own plant

There’s no getting away from the houseplant craze.

According to one report, more than 34 million households in the US have a houseplant.

Rather than buy your girlfriend a pre-grown plant, consider treating her to a “grow your own” kit. She’ll be able to raise a plant from seed and see how it grows.

Perfect for new couples; as the plant grows, your relationship does.


There you have it – five interesting gift ideas for the woman in your life. Whatever you choose to buy, we hope that your gift is well-received and that you have a great time celebrating.
