1. Vintage-style ornaments. There’s nothing more classic and timeless than a vintage ornament. If you’ve got a friend or family member who loves decorating their tree with vintage ornaments, give them a box of new ones to switch things up a bit.

2. Garland made from old Christmas cards. If your loved one is especially sentimental about their old Christmas cards, give them a garland made from them! Not only is this a really unique gift, it’s also a really sentimental one.

3. A DIY advent calendar. If your loved one loves advent calendars (or any type of countdown calendar), give them an original DIY version instead of purchasing one off of the shelf. This is a really unique and special gift that will definitely be appreciated.

4. A jar of homemade hot cocoa. Personally, I think this is the best gift of all! Not only is it delicious, but it’s also something that your loved one can enjoy on cold winter days. Plus, it’s a really unique way to show your appreciation for them.

5. A set of Christmas cookies. This is definitely the classic stocking stuffer, and it’s always a hit with everyone. If you’re not sure what kind of cookies your loved one likes, give them a set of assorted Christmas cookies to choose from!
