With Christmas around the corner, and not much else to do in terms of going out, there is a lot of online shopping going on, i know for sure in my household! In this guide you will find a selection of highly original, if not unusual gifts to bring a smile to the recipient's face. You might also find a gift for the person who is impossible to buy for.
Nicholas Cage Wooden Spoon £5.50
A hilariously random gift with an underlying functionality is the Nicholas Cage wooden spoon available on Etsy HERE Perfect for the person who likes cooking but sort of has everything already.
Face Socks £18-£25
There are a few different companies doing this online, the ultimate personalised gift. The best thing about this is that you can achieve a highly personalised gift at a really affordable price. You will also get major brownie points for originality.
London map £30
Artworks which are also functional is what these stylish maps are all about. The newest addition to the range is the smaller A3 size map which makes a great present for those who have a connection to the areas featured on the maps. You can buy here at planetpatrol.co.uk/
Very Ugly Plates £10-£40
I first discovered these plates on instagram @veryuglyplatess and realised that you can buy them. The brand is based in Berlin, Germany, but they ship everywhere. I think these are great gifts because plates are ultimately functional and the message makes subversively interesting. The brand has since also expanded into mugs which widen the price bracket of these quirky gifts.
Oak pen pot £25
Craftsman Jamie creates a range of hand carved items, the pen pot is one of my favourite simply because of the simplicity of the form and function. The best thing about this item is that you can give one each year over a number of years to create a long term collection. Originally discovered at Broadway market, Jamie's items are also now available to buy online.

This blank ticket book can be used for a range of promise notes - from washing the dishes, a massage or a weekend get away. A good item to use for a stocking filler. Not a bad gift for a child either! Designed in the UK by suck UK.
