- 74 Last Minute Gift Ideas

What to do, what to do? You want to find some sort of unusual gifts because the special holiday of your choice (i.e. birthday, anniversary, Father's Day, Mother's Day, Christmas, Valentine's Day, etc.) is coming up, but you have no real idea what to get the other person (or: persons!) as a present. 

If your present is for a man you may have already gotten him a tie, a sweater vest (which he has never worn), and socks for the last 5 years in a row, and if it's for a woman you can bet that she has already accumulated more "Free Hugs" coupons than she may enjoy.

If you have next to no idea what you can get the other person for their upcoming special day you join the ranks of millions of other women and men who are just like you; slightly clueless when it comes to buying presents.

One mistake that many people make when trying to come up with gift ideas for men or gift ideas for women is that they fail to think outside the box, and they either end up looking for inane last minute gift ideas or getting the same old gifts year after year.

If you are as sick of giving people around you the same gifts as they are sick of receiving them, never fear. Short of dreaming up and crafting your own homemade gift ideas you should know that there are hundreds, nay thousands, of unusual gifts that you can give your friends and loved ones!

These original gifts are bound to be a success, as they are completely out of the ordinary and most likely something that they would never have thought of buying for themselves.

Okay, so some of these unusual presents are highly unnecessary or even totally silly, but at least they are unusual - unique, even. So, rather than racking your brain for something to get, check out the list of special gifts below - there's something for almost every occasion.
