Every holiday season, we’re on the hunt for unique Christmas gifts for the people we care about most (because we don’t want to be that person who gets a gift card every year). But finding a truly uncommon or specific gift can be a really daunting task! To make your life easier, our editors have put together a list of the best websites to buy unique Christmas gifts, so you can find something fun and creative people won’t be expecting.
This one may seem like an obvious pick but you can find virtually everything known to mankind on Amazon. That said, you have to know what you are looking for and search for items accordingly. You can find a ton on Amazon, but get your unique gift ideas first!
Etsy is a gold mine if you are looking for unique Christmas gifts because everything is pretty much customizable. No matter what you’re looking for, Etsy is a global marketplace of creators from all over the world so the options for unique gifts are endless. Since those are usually homemade to order, allow for plenty of time to make sure you get your gift in time before the holidays.
Uncommon Goods is the perfect place to find out-of-the-ordinary gifts that will suit any interest, style or hobby. Even if you go into it without the slightest idea of what you want, you’ll get tons of inspiration. It’s one of our favorite websites for unique Christmas gifts!
Sugarfina is a great option for anyone who loves sweets and their boozy candies make for some of the most unique Christmas gifts. Who turns down rose flavored candies? No one!
Cratejoy is the best site to pick a subscription box for someone based on their interests and hobbies. You can browse hundreds of subscription boxes and find the perfect fit. You probably don’t know half of these even existed… A fun subscription box is one of the most unexpected and unique Christmas gifts.
6. The Grommet
The Grommet gives you the ability to choose how your unique gift is sourced: you can buy from companies that are minority-owned, select items with life-time guarantees or even filter by products that support philanthropy. We love that The Grommet supports small businesses!
7. World Market
World Market features tons of unique gifts from around the globe. From French gourmet gift baskets to Moroccan tagine dishes and beer making kits, the options are endless. Even better, wrap your gift in their unique handmade paper and you’ve got an easy, thoughtful gift for Christmas.
Everyone knows Urban Outfitters has a great gift section but I didn’t know you could find so many truly unique Christmas gifts there. Bonus point, they are super trendy items and on average things are really affordable. They have pink butter to put on toast, that’s pretty f*cking cool.
ModCloth has a rather small selection of gifts compared to the other sites on this list but they are extremely carefully curated. So many unique gift options, one cuter than the other!
10. Red Bubble
Red Bubble is a platform featuring over 400k creatives worldwide creating custom shirts, stickers, phone cases, and pillows etc… So if your best friend is a huge fan of the office, or can’t stop binge watching Game of Thrones, you can now have a bunch of fun items made for them!
