Have you checked your calendar lately? Christmas is just around the corner! Instead of waiting until the last minute to buy gifts for your friends and family, think about starting early and getting it done so that you can really relax and enjoy your holidays. Check in to the holiday with these truly unique gift options!

Name a Star

  • That's right, you can give the gift of naming a star after someone.
  • Your named star will be chosen by the registry company, after which they will mail you a certificate and a star chart, so that you can find the star on your own. 
  • Keep in mind that, in a scientific sense, your star will not officially have your chosen name. Most stars are named by number. However, your gift can still be meaningful to you and whoever you choose to give it to.

Adopt a Goat

  • Wildlife foundations and organizations will often have a system in place by which you can "adopt" a goat or other animal. The money that you pay will go directly to that organization's needs, which will in turn help animals of all kinds. 
  • For example, when you adopt a goat through the World Animal Foundation, you will receive a picture of the goat, along with a certificate, fact sheet, and further information about how you can help animals and the environment. 
  • There are also organizations that will allow you to donate a goat to a family in need.

Sock Subscription

  • Who doesn't need a new pair of socks? Some companies offer subscription-style gifts, where you can pay a fee and have a gift, like a cool pair of socks, mailed to someone each month for a year. 
  • Most sock subscription companies offer fun sock options that your gift recipient is sure to love! 
  • One of the best things about this gift is that it keeps on giving all year long!

Personalized Book

  • There are various companies out there that will produce a book, with a pre-written story, but include the name of your choice in the book. 
  • For example, instead of a book called 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, the book you get might be called 'Twas the Night Before Christmas at Rory's House
  • Let's be honest: everyone loves a personalized gift! It makes a person feel special to have their name in print.

Sure, scented candles, action figures, and toothbrushes are great gifts. But why not go a little out of the box this year? Even if none of the above gifts are to your taste, you can always put some time into it and make your own gift at home. Your friends and family will appreciate your thoughtfulness!
