Play fairy godmother or godfather and make a birthday wish come true.

Of course you want to give a unique birthday gift. No one sets out to choose a gift that ends up being regifted. But what makes a truly unique gift versus a more ordinary one? We’ve gathered our favorite tips on how to choose a gift that will really stand out from the crowd.

  1. Buy for who the person is, not what’s trendy. For example, big, bold jewelry may be in fashion but if you’re buying for a classic gal, geared more toward pearls and gold, a trendy birthday gift may stay sitting on her bedroom dresser never to be worn.

  2. Are they the curious sort? If you’re buying for someone who loves to learn and challenge themselves, a cooking class or wine-tasting seminar will inspire their love of learning. Many experiential gifts offer unique opportunities for the birthday recipient to develop new interests.

  3. Indulge them: Oftentimes the most unique gifts are the ones that the birthday girl or guy has long wished for but would never treat themselves to buying. So play fairy godmother or godfather and make someone’s birthday wish come true.

  4. Don’t discount the gift card: Years ago, gift cards were impersonal and seen as “the easy way out.” Not anymore. Because so many cards can now be customized with personal photos and messages, they are actually a unique idea. Treat them to a movie night or a shopping spree (mini or major) at their favorite store. Each time they use the card they will see your custom image and message and be reminded of the unique birthday gift you gave them.
