The Rinkit! Guide to Buying Unique Christmas Gifts

A fresh Unique Christmas Gift guide for anyone unsure of the right present this festive season

None of us like to say it out-loud but it is true that one of the best things about Christmas is the presents. It’s the best feeling knowing someone you love is about to open something you’ll know they will really appreciate. But when you don’t know what they would love it can be really hard to find them the right gift. This year I have made this task as easy as possible by writing you a simple unique Christmas Gifts guide perfect for anyone and everyone.

Let's Break it Down - Why are Unique Christmas Gifts so Great?

We all know when someone has gotten us a last minute gift, or worse, a gift they clearly haven’t thought about. It’s just a waste, and can be a little embarrassing. However it’s an amazing feeling opening a present you maybe didn’t know you would love so much as you do.

When giving gifts this year, think about the person you are giving to, think about what they like, dislike, what they use, what they don’t. Finding something that is suited to that special someone brings so much joy to them and to you which is why giving unique christmas gifts is a win win.

My advice is to write a list - Who you are buying for, how much you want to spend and what they would love. Then you can organise yourself and not have the fuss or faff this year. In this blog I will go through our most popular unique christmas gifts, the products that proved most popular last year and my personal favourites.

Most Popular Gifts Last Year from Rinkit!

At Rinkit, we aim to bring in between 1000 and 2000 new products onto our site every year. Giving you options galore and ample amounts to ranges to choose from. We really want to make sure you are getting exactly what you want, ensuring that it’s on trend, your style and high quality. This has and will always be our aim. By seeing what's most popular we can steer our way to the next range of products and create collections we know you will love.

Last year between November and December products such as coffee mugs, box photo frames, tableware and serveware were bought the most. Taking note from this our purchasing team have expanded these ranges particularly, adding more shapes, sizes and styles to give you all the top trends with plenty of options to find the ones best suited for you.

We’ve also got a wide range of unique Christmas themed gifts to get you in the festive spirit in the lead up to the big day. Such as Tree Skirts, Tableware, Door Mats and Door Stops.

The Best Unique Christmas Gifts

Tea and Coffee Mugs

Last Christmas (I gave you my heart) tea and coffee mugs were extremely popular. They are a necessity for any home and alongside the bog standard we have a huge range to choose from including - Glass Coffee Mugs, Cappuccino Mugs, Thermo Insulated Hot Drinks Glasses, Turkish Tea Cups and so much more.

Knowing someone’s favourite drink and gifting them a mug or glass to suit that drink means it will forever have it’s personal use and a thoughtful touch.

Martini and Gin Glasses

A continuously popular couple of products are the martini and gin glasses. The same principle stands (as the Tea and Coffee mugs), gifting someone who loves a gin and tonic a set of stunning gin glasses to enjoy their favourite drink is guaranteed to deliver warm and fuzzy festive feelings.

Photo Frames

Last year we were blown away by the demand of the Box Photo Frames. So this year we upped our game and now not only have hundreds of Box Frames in different sizes and colours, but we also have a range of Mounts, Free Standing and Hanging Floating Frames in a range of colours and sizes.

A Photo Frame is an inexpensive gift that offers so many ideas and options to become the most perfect personalised unique Christmas gift. For example -

The Really Unique Christmas Gifts

Thinking outside the box and getting extra cute and cheesy. I also wanted to give you some random ideas that could just be the solution you are looking for. I have also added a small reason to make them feel more thoughtful.

  • Hot Water Bottle / Lanterns - To keep your warm and cosy this winter
  • Cocktail Bareware Set - Because who needs to go out for a drink? Or can..
  • A Hanging Mirror - Because you’re beautiful and need to see it more.
  • A Wine Rack - An excuse to buy and drink more.

I could go on, but I feel that’s enough cheese for one blog.


There we have some unique Christmas Gifts that will place a smile on your loved ones face. A thoughtful gift is so much stronger than a last minute desperation dash to the supermarket. So this year may your days be merry and bright with the help of this blog and here's to having a very happy Christmas.
