For the health conscious  

This unique gift idea is sure to be a hit! These avocado huggersare made out of silicone to help your favorite healthy fat fresh longer. The best part? They are under $20!

For the newly weds

Having trouble finding a gift for newly wed friends? This movie marque sign would make a great addition to their home and it can be customized to whatever you want it to read! Nothing says “I love you” more than a gift that you can personalize. Items like this mixtape pillow and personalized record doormat make a fun addition to anyone’s home. These are especially great for new home/apartment owners!

Gifts for the active

When it comes to unique gifts, our active friends can be a challenge. We all have that one friend/family member that is super active. Even when it’s freezing outside, they insist on staying active. If you have a friend who is a runner, these night runner lightswill keep them safe, lighting their path (plus helps them finish their run in case the sun sets early on them).

Pet friendly gifts 

Our pets are a big part of our lives. If your loved one has a fur baby, these gifts will be sure to surprise them! Gifts like this customized pet illustration give a fun addition to the walls of any home. Simply send in a picture and the artists re-creates their photo into an illustration! This leak proof dog bowl is also a great gift to give (and it is under $30). My favorite gift for kitties by far is this DJ Cat Scratching Padthat is under $40 and is sure to give some laughs when your family and friends open it!
