A very warm welcome to the Self Development Forum !

It can be very difficult to choose the right Christmas gifts for people as well as being quite stressful. This self development article highlights the benefit of thinking outside the box and selecting more unusual gifts or unique experiences which are a little different from the norm.

See: Unusual Christmas Gifts

* What strange or unusual gift would you add to the list?
* Have you ever been given a gift that was totally unexpected?
* How do you choose gifts for people who seem to have everything?

I'd love to receive your feedback so do add your comments, queries, thoughts, etc., to this Forum thread. I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Joy! I love your ideas! What great gifts! Unfortunately, when money is tight, some of those fantastic trips are not doable but I love gifts that give an experience.

Thanks for the ideas.

Hi Lori, thanks for your feedback on the article. In fact, a 'gift experience' can often cost less than a tangible gift so all the best for some creative thinking! (JOY)

Hi Jodie, your comment made me smile. Actually, there is a huge range of 'gear' that one can buy these days for all sorts of pets! (JOY)

Hi Lisa, 'dining someone' is a great gift experience to give to friends, relatives, etc. It certainly shows genuine love or gratitude to people you care about. (JOY)

It's very tasty, too smile Luckily there are a variety of good restaurants around here, and we get the Entertainment books so we have all sorts of discounts. Bob is a firm believer of using coupons for everything.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

Re: Unusual Christmas Gifts

Has anyone received a really unusual or strange gift, or even something that was totally unexpected?
