Consider These Unique Christmas Gift Ideas

Non-Violent, Educational Christmas Gifts for Children

Christmas has become incredibly commercialized these days, with toy manufacturers pushing the toy equivalent of sugary candy on kids. You'll feel better about your gifts if you purchase something with more value--a gift of higher quality. KazooToys.Com has a large variety of games, toys, and puzzles and was voted Toy Store of the Year. You also may want to check out MelissaAndDoug.com, which sells well-crafted toys and games that promote learning. Such positive gift ideas will surely stand out.

E-Book Readers Are Hot Following Price-Drop

Amazon.com's Kindle e-Reader makes a great gift for book lovers, especially now that they've come out with a version that costs only $139. Your friend or loved one will be able to carry around a whole virtual library with this handy device, and it costs hundreds less than an Apple iPad.

Get Really Creative With Your Christmas Gifts

The most unique Christmas gifts of all are the ones designed by you. If your browser has the Flash plug-in, you can try creating customized gifts online using SpreadShirt.com's gift-designing interface. You can put any message or image you want on a shirt, mug, mousepad, and many other items.

Name a Star, Name a Pair of Stars

Name a star in the sky for your wife or husband, mother or father. The International Star Registry will send a certificate as well as a star map and other goodies. You can also name a pair of stars to represent the eternal love between two people -- definitely a unique gift idea.

Plan an Unforgettable Trip

People are traveling more than ever before, and there is no better way to really wow someone this Christmas than with travel plans to escape the cold! Travel deals can be found everywhere. Consider, for example, an amazing trip aboard a cruise ship. Visit Carnival.com for specials on cruises to the Bahamas, Caribbean, Mexico and more. You can sail for as little as $259! Surprise your wife or husband this Christmas with plans for a well-deserved get-away!

Hard-to-get Concert Tickets

Head over to TickCo to buy concert tickets, including shows that may be listed as sold-out on Ticketmaster. TickCo also has sporting events, Broadway shows and more.

For a Young Child, a Personalized Book

Order personalized children's books, featuring animals that spell out the child's name. You can also order a matching shirt and small stuffed animal. The price is right and the gift will be treasured for many years to come.

Computer Games by PopCap

Pop Cap Mini Logo

I mention PopCap specifically because their games are so addicting. Zuma is my favorite. :) They also have learning games for kids, with a 50% promotion running right now.
