Our annual list of most unique holiday gifts 2020 is here! You know we’re crazy over unique and creative Christmas gifts and today we’re sharing our top picks for unique Christmas gift ideas 2020. We’ve curated this list to find the best handmade gift ideas for moms, dads, brothers, sisters, best friends, colleagues at work, and maybe even a few for yourself. we heard you were good this year. :)
With over one hundred curated gifts in our holiday gift guide, you’ll find ideas for everyone on your list. We’ve hand-picked our favorite jewelry, coffee mugs, ring dishes, ornaments, charging valets, super-cozy blankets and mittens, funny socks, baby blankets, candles, and so much more.
Think guys are hard to shop for? We’ve got them covered! Andrew helped select the handmade gifts ideas for the guys so they’re all dude-approved.
The handmade gifts on this list are lovingly crafted by an independent artist, so you’re supporting small businesses… while scoring unique holiday gifts you can’t find anywhere else. These are all available for purchase online, so shopping in a comfy pair of PJs or your favorite flannel with cup of coffee in hand is not only totally acceptable, but highly encouraged (and way more relaxing than driving to a mall or dozens of stores).
Before we get started, just a few things to note: these are all listed in no particular order — if it made this list, we wholeheartedly love it. Therefore, #7 is not more loved than #87, it’s just that they all have to go somewhere. Secondly, SHOP EARLY. I can’t emphasize this enough. Last year, we put out our most unique holiday gifts guide a bit later and some people ran into problems with ship time, or waiting lists, or what have you.
Lastly, feel free to comment in the box at the bottom about your favorite item from this list. Suggest a holiday gift that we missed. Or just say hello. You know we love to hear from you guys! XO
p.s. Isn’t this jingle sweater so cute? I spotted it at TheBlueRoseKy.
Anyways, enough from me… on to the MEGA guide with 100 unique Christmas gifts 2020! Enjoy!
