9 Best Amazon UK Unusual Gifts
Without further ado, here are our top unique gift ideas on Amazon.
We’re starting off our list of weird presents with a fairly practical and understated gift.
This present is affordable and actually useful, so it makes a perfect secret Santa present that’s away from the norm.
This bean tin is designed to store possessions secretly.
Use the tin as a stationary pot, or to store money and keys to disguise them from prying eyes.
We think this tin makes a lovely present as it doubles as funny and actually useful.
Do you ever find that whenever you need a fancy dress costume, everything is way too expensive, won’t arrive on time or just doesn’t look funny enough?
The solution to this is having a great fancy dress costume at home all year round, just in case you’re invited to a Halloween party spontaneously.
We absolutely love this alien carrying a baby costume, and we’re pretty sure whoever you buy it for will too.
They might even plan their own fancy dress party just so they can wear their hilarious new outfit!
Also if the ‘person who has everything’ you’re trying to buy for loves dressing up and Halloween, then you can’t go far wrong with this quirky present.
We’re willing to bet money that the person you’re buying a present for doesn’t have one of these.
And if they do, then please ask them why and let us know their answer.
This gift will probably be used a couple of times and forgotten about, occasionally to be brought out at parties.
But that doesn’t mean it’s not a brilliant gag gift.
If the person is an eccentric that’s difficult to buy for, or perhaps a teenager who likes the sillier things in life – then this yodelling pickle is sure to make them smile.
Apparently the yodelling goes on for quite a while – so pre-warning: this maybe isn’t the best gift for somebody you live with who enjoys getting on your nerves.
This hilarious card game will add a funny and unique twist to game night.
On Amazon, the game is described as: “It’s a power-packed quick and simple party game. Race against each other to SLAP a match between a card and spoken word. But – watch out! – your mind will play tricks on you. This game was engineered for maximum fun. Enjoy!”
The game is as unique as its name, and many reviewers say it had them laughing their heads off for hours.
We think this is a perfect unusual gift as it will definitely be used time and time again, at parties, with families and on game nights with friends.
If you’re looking for a funny gag gift for a secret Santa or for a person who likes brightening up their workday, then this tape dispenser and stationery supply stand is brilliant.
We can just imagine the office joker going around asking everybody if they need any sellotape, and chuckling away as they bring out their novelty tape dispenser.
It would also work as a fab gift for a crafty person, a student or teenager.
We’ll be honest, we had no idea you could get a cheese-making kit anywhere let alone on Amazon!
Any cheese-lover will be used to receiving all different kinds of cheeses for Christmas and birthdays, but they might never have received an actual kit to make their very own cheese.
This kit comes with everything you need to make 20 Different Artisan Cheeses in over 40 batches!
This kit is designed with beginners in mind, so you don’t need any experience to start making your home-made cheeses.
This may be the ultimate gift for cheese lovers!
We had to exercise some serious self-control to not buy these for ourselves when we saw them.
This gift is the perfect combination of two of the world’s best things: pizza and funky socks!
A novelty gift like this is one they’ll definitely use and enjoy.
It looks great in its fun pizza-box packaging, and they receive pizza-themed pairs of socks. Win-win!
This is one of those weird gifts on Amazon that we would love to receive ourselves.
This may be the ultimate work procrastination mug.
We know we’d spend hours playing with the blocks and making up mini-stories in our head to avoid getting that task done.
It’s also a cute retro mug to use at home or as a gift for somebody going to university.
Also, it’s socially acceptable and office appropriate, unlike some of the other presents in this list.
We think this is a lovely gift that’s more quirky than unusual, and it’s sure to put a smile on anybody’s face.
Know a space-fanatic with a sweet tooth?
These gorgeously decorated chocolate planets are stunning little treats that anybody would be happy to receive.
We think they might even be too good to eat!
There’s something so special about how each chocolate is so uniquely different.
We’re sure that whoever is the lucky recipient of the planet chocs will be over the moon! Get it?
Our Final Thoughts on Surprising Gifts from Amazon
Buying a novelty present is a great way to guarantee they won’t already have what you’re getting them.
It’s also brilliant for making people smile and laugh, which should be the effect of every gift.
We love shopping for unique items on Amazon because the range of odd products you can find on there is truly unbeatable.
In this post, we tried to include a variety of weird presents that would suit all budgets, tastes and personalities.
Plus, we also wanted to pick items that would actually get used – aside from the yodelling pickle that is.
Although novelty gifts are funny, it’s quite wasteful of money and materials to buy gifts that will ultimately end up shoved at the back of a drawer.
‘Unusual’ doesn’t have to mean useless, so we tried to pick practical unique gifts that would hopefully provide some value in people’s lives.
We hope you enjoyed the range of presents we picked for this unusual gifts from Amazon in the UK gift guide.
