Secrets to Scoring Weird Gifts for Delightfully Unusual People
For many occasions, earnest gifts are often the way to go. For others, funny gifts fit the bill. But every so often, there's someone you know so well that you're sure weird gifts are the only route possible. Here's to the unusual people in your life - may they stay weird!

Pick Something She'll Never Actually Use
Did you know you can name a star after someone, buy them an acre on the moon, or purchase them a tiny small plot of land in a foreign country? No, they'll never use it - but they'll relish knowing it's theirs.

Get Him Something Weirdly Personalized
Personalization is heartwarming. That is, unless it ventures into unusual territory. A personalized set of towels? Great. A custom stuffed animal of your friend? Pretty unusual. You can even consider having a caricature drawn of your favorite weirdo.

Gift Her Something Wacky to Wear
Silly socks, outrageous t-shirts, and even funny-looking hats are perfectly weird gifts for someone who refuses to dress "normal."

Choose Things That Look Like Other Things
Measuring spoons that look like musical notes, a bottle opener that resembles a hockey puck, a pillow that looks like a chocolate chip cookie - these are just a few examples of weird gifts that will appeal to unusual sensibilities.

Identify a Double-Duty Gift
Multitasking is pretty normal. But a smartphone stand that doubles as a vase or a towel that doubles as a guide to food and wine pairings. Pretty unusual? Perfectly weird gifts.

Get a Goofy Game
Unusual people like to share in their weirdness, so gift him with a three-man chess set or a bizarre board game for his next party.

Gift a Gag
We're not talking about just any gag. We're talking something that might not make any sense at all, could be a gift for someone of a completely different age, with completely different taste.
