8 Creative Present Ideas

Depending on your personality, the art of gift-giving can be as enjoyable as your favorite hobby or as nerve-wracking as taking a big exam – and anything in between.paint kit However, even the most adept gift aficionados need to look for ideas sometimes, and hopefully, this blog will give you some unique options to surprise and impress the person you have in mind.

1. Scratch map

A scratch map is a great gift for regular travelers and those who only dream of visiting new places. As you scratch off one country after another, you feel like an explorer conquering distant lands – you’ll always be on the lookout for new spots to drop anchor.

2. Paint kit

If you have a creative friend, they will surely appreciate a paint kit – a canvas, a new set of tools, or even a more beginner-friendly product like paint by numbers kits. Contrary to what some believe, numbered kits are not just meant for kids or painting novices, they often feature complex, vivid, and elaborate designs too.

3. Custom board game

Custom board games may take a lot of effort to prepare, but the payoff is unforgettable. The idea is to create a new board game using jokes, memories, and things you share. You can borrow mechanics from existing games and order printed pieces – or make everything from scratch yourself. It’s up to you.

4. Photoshoot

Photoshoots can be a lot of fun, but many of us are hesitant to order them due to price concerns or fear of appearing vain. However, it’s completely different when someone gifts you a photoshoot – you get a great mix of new and high-quality photos that you might have been shy to invest in yourself.

5. Instant Polaroid Camera

This type of camera seems to be making a huge comeback today. Storing photos in the cloud is convenient and all, but it often feels like the memories in them lose a bit of their magic. On the other hand, instant polaroid photos of fun times exist as singular copies that instantly bring you back to amazing moments in your life.

6. Photo calendar

When it comes to creative calendars, one of the best things you can do is make your own. Use photos of the gift recipient or experiences you shared – maybe even some funny or awkward moments that’ll crack you both up everytime you turn the page for a new month. 

7. Lego set

Who cares if Lego is supposedly made for kids? Assembling the kits and creating all kinds of wacky arrangements can be just as fun for us grown-ups too. In fact, if the person you are buying for has a favorite media franchise, there’s a chance that dedicated sets are available with those characters and settings. Inspire them to become big kids for the day!

8. Mixtape

People don’t really create mixtapes as much as they used to 20 years ago – but perhaps it’s time to bring the art of mixtapes back. If you want to surprise your friend with a custom mixtape, it’s as easy as buying a USB stick and copying all the needed files over. No fuss, no stress.
