The Best Non-Traditional, Alternative Gift Ideas for 2021

Coming up with the perfect gift to give to your loved ones can be a challenging task. Understandably, it’s not easy to come up with a unique idea every single time. As a result, you may often find yourself recycling old ideas or struggling to find the perfect gift.

Regardless of the occasion, you should always have a list of gifts ready, so you can use it whenever you need it. If you’re worried about getting the perfect gift for your special person, here’s a list of non-traditional ideas that you can use.

Incense Sticks

Incense sticks come in various flavours and aromas. With the right smells, you can successfully engage a person’s senses and transport them to a whole different dimension. From Cinnamon to Witches Curse, incense sticks can shift a person’s entire reality.

You can pair this gift with incense holders and oil burners so that the gift is ready to use right away.

Funky Jewellery

Regardless of your gender, you can sport funky jewellery and wear it proudly. When selecting a gift, you can get your loved ones some themed jewellery of their favourite TV shows, books, or movies. For example, if you’re giving a gift to a Harry Potter fan, you can buy them pendants shaped like the Golden Snitch or the Sorting Hat. It’s sure to bring a smile to their face!

Themed Bathrobes and Hoodies

If you’re aware of the person’s likes and dislikes, you can get them themed robes and hoodies that they can wear to flaunt their fandom. You can buy ones with embroidered or printed designs relevant to their favourite movie or TV show franchises. For example, if they’re a Game of Thrones fan, you can get them a hoodie with their favourite Game of Thrones house printed/embroidered on it.


In addition to the generic stuff, you can also get them specific memorabilia of their most liked rock bands, fictional books/movies/TV shows, and other things. These memorabilia should directly relate with the franchise and should act as a reference to a deeper meaning that only fans understand. It’s the best way to show your loved ones that you put thought into buying the gift for them.
