4.  Melitta Pour Over 6-Cup Porcelain Coffee Maker 

There are times when I am looking at my cup of coffee and thinking about a time when I refused to drink coffee.  I am a late coffee bloomer.  I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was in my late 30s.  Granted I still need cream, sugar, or creamer, but my love for coffee grows stronger every day! 

That is why I knew I had to include this Melitta Pour Over 6-Cup Porcelain Coffee Maker in our Unique and Creative Ideas Gift Guide. If you have a coffee lover in your life then you know this would be the perfect gift for them!

I am loving being able to make my coffee and take the carafe and coffee cup with me to my office and enjoy a fresh hot cup of coffee that I just brewed simply with hot water and ground coffee!

This also falls under one of those perfect gifts that they will love and actually use!

5.  House Plants 

Now before I hear the whole, “Really??? House plants as a gift?”, let me explain.  There is someone in our lives that loves plants right?  Whether it be succulents or regular house plants, they love them and have a fantastic green thumb.  I actually know several.  I have someone on my gift list who adores succulents so a gift from House Plant, would be perfect!  They even have subscription boxes!  Now, before the next thought of, “Seriously plants through the mail?”.  Yes, absolutely and why not?  We had a nice variety delivered to our home.  Everything survived and is still flourishing today!  I can’t wait to give them as gifts this year!  I will admit I’m keeping a couple for myself because they work perfect in a new display I have at my kitchen window!

6. Rocketbook – Best Smart Notebook

Rocketbook is on a mission to create the best products for taking all of life’s notes in today’s connected world!  The fact that this is a totally reusable intelligent notebook that you can use repeatedly is fabulous and definitely worth checking out!


7. Rustic 1773 Merchantile 

If you are looking for handmade and unique gift ideas or fun products for yourself, then you must check out this family business from Oklahoma!  Their items are safe for sensitive skin, contain no soap dyes or byproducts.   You really need to head over to their site to learn more about them! 

8. Snow Teeth Whitening 

I will have to update my before, during, and after photos.  However, I will say that this system is amazing!  It worked perfectly!  I think you will truly love your new bright smile! 

9. Tre Olive 

Do you have someone to buy for on your list that is extremely hard to buy for?  I have a fantastic idea for them!  How about their very own Olive tree!  Thanks to Tre Olive, you can actually adopt your own Olive Tree AND get olive oil from the tree! 

10. Healbe

This is a fitness watch that I have a very strong love/hate relationship with!  

The watch works just fine and does everything that say.  That is the problem!  It works a little TOO well!  It’s actually a little TOO honest!  Since we all have fitness goals at the beginning of the new year, stay turned for a post about the journey, why I quit wearing the watch for a while and why I realized that I NEED something this honest!

This really is an amazing process and such an unique and thoughtful gift!
