Weird, Fun Gifts You Didn’t Know You Wanted
This one’s for all the weirdos, the nerds, the geeks, the kind of “different” people, or just anyone that would like something different this Christmas . . . Unique and Quirky Gifts That Any Odd Person Will Appreciate – where we cast out generic gifts, embrace gifts that aren’t boring and normal.
Where we accept that people are in fandoms; or that they obsess over bands that don’t know their names; or that they like obscure things that nobody has heard of; or that maybe they’re completely normal and would just like something not completely boring this Christmas (I’m sure getting socks for twenty years in a row gets old). Whether it’s comics, maths, old-school retro, Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy and Twenty One Pilots (okay, maybe that’s just me . . .), TV shows, movies or whatever not exactly mainstream thing that they’re into, we have some cool alternative gift ideas right here for you!
Whether you’re looking for things to add to your wishlist, or just some pretty cool presents for those quirky people in your life – this list will guarantee the oddball satisfaction for those unique people that are so difficult to buy for.

75 Unique And Quirky Gift Ideas Any Odd Person Will Appreciate
- A Diagrammatical Dissertation on Opening Lines of Notable Novels Print – £20
Literary geeks – take note of this! I love the way I addressed this to you, when it’s most definitely to us, because literary geeks is my squad. This odd gift is perfect for those that love to read and write alike as it features the analysis of the opening lines to some of the most notorious novels.
- Skeleton Earrings – £13
This cute and gothic earring set is both unique and adorable. For your totally kawaii, cute teens that want to walk on the dark side (but . . . like, not the Star Wars dark side) or for your more emo, goth girls that want to be a little sweeter.
- Pug Ring – £4.20
PUGS! Pugs are cute; rings are cute. Would I normally put the two together? No. But does it work? Weirdly yes.
- Book Lover Bracelet – £10
Okay, book lovers – our time has arrived. Show your appreciation of books with this cute little bracelet.
- Personalised Animal Necklace – £24
Don’t you look at me like that – I know this is a necklace and that in itself is not exactly unique, but then look at the pendant design. It’s awesome. You hater. These quirky necklaces are definitely something you don’t see everyday.
- Steampunk Cufflinks – £29
- Hair Rings With Charms – £12
Okay, now this present idea is definitely something I haven’t seen before – and, considering how much time I spend crawling the web for slightly odd things, that’s saying a lot. But it is a really cool (and edgy, let’s not forget that) present – and a very different way to accessorise.
- Secret Message Compass Necklace – £19
“Drink Me” Bottle Necklace – £12
Nostalgic gifts can sometimes be the best. And Alice In Wonderland gifts are both trippy and adored. It’s a little bottle that says “Drink Me” – that’s awesome, ask anyone.
- Map Of Home Personalised Puzzle – £34
- Smartphone Projector – £17.95
I admit that this is one of those not exactly essential, but definitely necessary little technological additions to your life. But one: how cool is it? Two: how cheap is it for a projector anyway? And three: look at it! I guarantee this is a gift your recipient has already been given.
- The Periodic Table Of Elements Handkerchief – £9.95
Now, this is definitely one for the science lovers – and what a great idea it is too! I can just imagine Sheldon in a gingham suit, with a Periodic Table Hankerchief. Actually . . . I don’t want to.
- Tiny Message In A Bottle – £10
I‘ve featured this gift so many times that you’d think I’d get bored of seeing it – but it’s great! One: it’s tiny, and tiny gifts are so oddly captivating; it’s like you’re living life as a fairy. Two: it’s a secret tiny message! How cute is that? And it’s not something you see everyday – it’s a keepsake. Basically, universe, someone should get one of those for me.
- William Shakespeare’s Star Wars – £11.99
Geeks and literature freaks unite! Can we all take a moment to come together, hold hands and revel in our nerdiness? It’s Star Wars . . . written in the style of Shakespeare. I know it’s hard to process, but – it’s oh-so necessary.
- Personalised Stamped Vintage Locket – £24
- Dinosaur Plant Pot – £17.50
I know – where to begin? Do we discuss the strangely shaped dinosaur? The fact he’s a plant pot when he quite clearly wants to be an action figure? Or the oddly good film Jurassic World?
- Videre Diy Pinhole Camera Kit – £38
So much vintage goodness in one image!
- World Domination Notebook – £10
Look, if you’re telling me you don’t want to be involved in World Domination, then you’re lying. For all your twisted, evil purposes . . . a nice, neat notebook.

`It’s a pink vacuum cleaner. For a desk. It’s incredibly cute. And you’re left incredibly confused as to why it exists.
- YOLO Juliet – Romeo And Juliet Told Through Texts – £9.99
Yes, I’m obsessed with Shakespeare being retold in funny and strange ways. I’m an English Literature student (yes, I did it to myself. And yes I very much enjoy it.) and Shakespeare is the bane of my existence (seriously, Hamlet – shut the fuck up, just for once. Your soliloquies are not cool or necessary, you self-indulgent prick.) and watching his work be modernised through the use of emojis makes for a very special gift.
- Vintage Whisky Decanter Light – £50
Could you DIY this? Probably. But would you get that perfect finish? Never.
- Star Wars Rotating Art Mug Set – £20
More Star Wars gifts! This time in the form of spinning cups that form three of your favourite characters.
- Mr. Pug Mask – £60
Why does this exist? Why did somebody sit themselves down, think about life and go “you know what we need? A pug head to go on top of our own!”? Where was the logic? What was the need? Would someone like to clue me into how/why this extremely warped gift exists? Because I’m happy things this strange and weird do. But I’m so confused.
- Carved Elephant Table – £120
Elephant. Table. CUTE.
