4 Unusual Gifts to Give This Christmas

Are you stuck for Christmas gift ideas this year? Are your dear and near ones sick of the same pair of socks re-gifted year in year out? Well this year, perhaps take a look at our list of unusual gifts to give!

1. Gift to a charity on behalf of someone else

From adopting a beehive to gifting goats to farmers or sponsoring children, there are many different things you can give to charity on behalf of your loved ones. Most charities will send out a small pack containing information on the gift you've purchased, so there is still something to wrap and put under the Christmas tree.

2. Gift a membership to amazing locations

From the RHS to the National Trust, you can purchase memberships to some incredible locations that will last all year long. These places have an abundance of other benefits to an annual membership (for example, the RHS membership will give you access to a special help line for gardening) and becomes excellent value for money if you know the person loves being outdoors.

3. Gift a subscription service

It's not just Netflix that you can subscribe to. Perhaps your friend has a fabulous set of whiskers that require careful grooming? If so, a subscription to beard care products might make their Christmas. There are many other services like this, and it's just a case of finding your close one's interests and matching them to the subscription service.

4. Gift education

This wouldn't be an ADL list without the mention of the gift of education! It doesn't have to be expensive, our ebooks start at £14.99 and offer knowledge in a host of different subjects. Our smaller, 20 hours courses at under £100 are excellent for those wishing to help others embark on a learning journey!
