In 2019, Americans said they were going to spend close to $1,000 for Christmas! Whether your budget is near that, or not even close, one thing’s for certain: you want to make every dollar count.
Not only that, but you also want to make sure that your loved ones get presents that they’ll treasure and remember for a while. Otherwise, you risk giving them something that’s mundane and boring.
This Christmas, make sure your gifts are exemplary ones! Here’s our list of quirky gift ideas that you can use as inspiration.
Paper Origami Crane Earrings
These paper origami crane earrings are fantastic for the bookworms in your life. Each earring is unique, as the artist uses actual book pages to fold into these delicate paper birds.
If you’re worried about the durability of the earrings, rest easy knowing that they’re sprayed with an acrylic spray. This won’t make the earrings waterproof, but it’ll certainly make them last longer.
You’ll get to choose the earring hook finish. Your choices are sterling silver or silver, gold, or rose gold plating.
Watering Can Earrings
If you’re looking for a gift made in the USA, then these are some of the best unusual gifts to give. This is especially true if one of your loved ones is an avid gardener and would like nothing better than to show off their passion for the hobby!
These watering can earrings are great stocking stuffers because they’re very affordable. They also come in several color options, including silver, pink, red, blue, or a combination of pink and blue.
Whichever color you choose, the little watering can charms are sure to look cute on the recipient!
This gift name already makes you want to laugh, right? It’s certainly a creative name for a candle!
Not only that, but the creator (LindsayLucasCandles) has a wide range of scents and even different sizes for her fart extinguishers. In fact, you can choose from over 50 fragrances!
Her Etsy page gives detailed descriptions for every scent so you know exactly what you’re getting. While every candle is strong smelling, you don’t have to worry about weird chemicals. This artist uses high-quality soy wax and fragrance oils.
So for the candle lovers in your life, these can make excellent Christmas presents!
Wizard of Oz Bookmark
Here’s another gift that’s perfect for the bookworms in your life! It can be an especially appreciated present if they love Wizard of Oz.
This bookmark has extremely intricate details, which will have the recipient marveling at the craftsmanship. On the bookmark are the Wicked Witch of the East’s legs and iconic ruby red shoes. These stick out of the book so you can easily find your spot!
On the bookmark itself, it says “there’s no place like home” in a variety of fonts, and there’s a picture of a house as well.
Every bookmark is carved out of polymer clay and handpainted by the artist, which means every bookmark is special and unique. What’s great is if you want it customized, all you have to do is message the artist with your specifications and they’ll do everything they can to accommodate your request.
Chances are, the people in your life drink coffee or tea. And they could never have enough mugs! So if they love corgis, this is the mug for them.
This white mug has drawings of corgis in various positions and moods, which is extremely adorable. What’s great is the entire mug is hand-drawn in watercolors!
You have the option of choosing either an 11 oz or 15 oz mug. The mug can go in both the microwave and dishwasher, which means your giftee won’t have to worry about ruining the cute drawings when they want something hot to drink.
Cat Riding Unicorn Shower Curtain
Yes, you read that right: this shower curtain actually has a ninja cat holding a gold pistol riding a unicorn with laser eyes that’s spouting fire from its nostrils! If you wanted quirky Christmas gifts, you’ve certainly got one here.
This shower curtain is handmade and the colors are printed with the dye-sublimation printing technique. It’s also machine-washable, which means your recipient can just toss it into the laundry machine whenever it starts getting dirty.
But that’s not the only cool thing. For every sale this artist makes, they’ll donate a portion of the proceedings to the African Wildlife Foundation. So your money will go towards a good cause!
Also, if you want any other designs printed, you can always get in touch with them to have it done.

The main sticker is one with wipes, toilet paper, and cleaner depicted in the foreground, and 2020 in the background. Other stickers include depictions of facemasks with festive designs and a social distance peak.
