Unique Holiday Gift Ideas

For The Designer – NotKnot by Umemi

Is your best friend an interior design fanatic? Do they constantly tell you about items they think would look great in your house? Or do they consider a trip to Ikea as a fun activity at the weekend? If yes, then this Notknot cushion by Umemi will have them gushing with delight. The stylish handmade pillow is made from Icelandic wool and inspired by nautical and scout knotting. Available in a range of colours, we recommend the tan option available at US boutique LastaShop.

For The Fashionista – Rocksbox

Rocksbox.com is an exciting new service that delivers hand-picked jewelry to you once a month. You simply pick your friends style from a range of options and Rocksbox sends out three pieces of jewelry worth $200. They can then keep the jewelry for as long as they’d like or return them using a pre-paid envelope to receive three new pieces. This is a unique way gift idea that will make you more likely to find something your friends like! The service costs $19 a month though so you might want to just pay for the first month!

For The Fitness Freak – Quest Nutrition

Does your friend keep talking about protein? Do they come into the office sweating after an early morning spinning class? Quest Nutrition is the fastest growing company in the US as of 2014. The sports nutrition company has revolutionised the market with their delicious chips that have as much protein in them as a shake – without the hassle of putting it together – and only 5% of your daily carbohydrates in every bag!

For The Tech Wiz – Smart Gloves

If you’re friend is the type of person who queues up for the latest iPhone then this one is for them. The smart glove allows you to browse your iPhone whilst wearing gloves! As the nights get colder, it can be a real hassle taking off your gloves to use your iPhone, with the smart gloves, the screen recognises when you’re touching the phone and works perfectly!
