Unusual Gifts or Gifts for the Unusual perhaps....? ....

I always find it difficult to buy unusual gifts, especially for the person who seems to have everything or wants for nothing, yet a gift is required all the same! However, on Folksy, unusual gifts abound! Alternatively, we all have at least one friend, family member or even co-worker we need to buy for, that may have an unusual hobby, has out of the ordinary likes or even leads a lifestyle far from our own. We still love them and want to buy them a gift they would really appreciate, but what and from where? Again, Folksy has the answer! So sit back and enjoy these gorgeous, not-run-of-the-mill, artisan designed and made, hand crafted gift ideas. I do hope you be inspired.... How about this stunning lamp? With a natural agate slice insert, it could make the perfect gift for a geology buff (er me then) or a lovely Fathers Day gift, perhaps? The lamp is designed by Peta Allen. How about this if you have a board game enthusiast to buy for? The clock is for sale in Ruthscrafts This is lovely - so intricate! The Green Man could be a lovely gift for lovers of nature and all things natural and mystical perhaps? It has been made by David Stanton. This fantastic, colourful glass sculpture would make the most unusual house warming gift - great for warming and brightening any home. Created by Rachel Boyd This would make a really unusual gift! A Paper Chain inspired necklace by Kayleigh Walker This mirror would be great for those people who like to look good - and that are mad about bugs too! By Sarina Saddiq A gift for the osteopath who has everything - perhaps? Cushion cover by Marie Robinson. Well, I think you will agree, these are indeed unusual gifts. There are thousands to choose from on Folksy - these ones just appealed to me. If you click on the pictures, you will be taken directly to the items in the sellers shops. Thanks once again for looking! Jacqueline x


  1. Fascinating and interesting selection, Jacqueline. I had no idea, so thanks for drawing it to my attention. Very interesting blog post. Well done!

  3. These are such unusual gifts Jacqueline.

    I love the glass sculpture best of all but I also like the little grasshopper mirror as well.
