10 Unique & Affordable Christmas Gift Ideas

We've all been taught that it's the thought that counts when it comes to gifting. Finding cool and unusual Christmas gift ideas that are also meaningful is usually pretty difficult. So to help out the wayward gift-giver look beyond bland gift ideas, we dove into our trove of products and deals to find these: the most unique and affordable gifts on our site.

1

SWEDISH MASSAGE

We have a pretty hard time imagining anyone who wouldn't be thrilled to receive a massage as a gift. Swedish massage is probably the most gift-able of all the massage modalities, since it is gentle enough for massage newbies and focuses on general relaxation, rather than injury recovery.

STEAKHOUSE MEAL

Vegetarian or vegan friends aside, it's difficult to think of anyone turning their nose up at a steak dinner (and all those sides!). If possible, book a table in advance and encourage everyone to dress up to make the night feel extra special.

WINE DELIVERY

Everyone appreciates receiving a nice bottle of wine as a gift, so just imagine how excited they're going to be when you gift them an entire case of the stuff? Snag one of our great wine delivery deals for them and they'll even get to pick out their favourite varietals and discover a few new favourites as well.

ESCAPE ROOM

If you're looking for last-minute gifts for a group, consider booking an escape game for the whole bunch. They'll be so busy trying to solve puzzles and crack codes, they'll completely forget you almost forgot to buy them something.

 CUSTOM BOBBLEHEAD

A bobblehead made in someone else's image has got to be one of the most unique gifts they'll ever receive. Dress up and pose a friend, spouse, or even your pet however you want with this desk item, which is just as much a paperweight as it is a fun conversation starter.

COOKING CLASS

Let your gift recipient unleash their inner Wolfgang Puck in a cooking class. The Groupon inventory is always stocked with classes focused on cuisines and cooking styles from around the world. The best part? You can volunteer as a test audience for any food they make.

RACE CAR EXPERIENCE

Burning around a racetrack in pursuit of checkered-flag glory isn't just for the likes of Cole Trickle or Ricky Bobby. By browsing Groupon, you can find deals for your gift recipient that puts them in the driver's seat of an F1 car, NASCAR stock car, Ferrari, or other high-powered speed machines..

BRACELET FLASK

Some flasks are meant to be hidden away in inside coat pockets or handbags, but this one is meant to be seen. Plus, it holds up to 100mL of your favourite spirit, so we think it might double as a wrist-weight as well? At least that's what we're telling ourselves.

COCKTAIL SHAKER

Rainbow chrome finish is all the rage this year—we've seen it gracing flatware sets, cake servers, and mixing bowls. But this dazzling cocktail shaker is our favourite application of the trend so far, and has us counting down the minutes until we can shake up our next martini (j/k, we were doing that anyway).

PHOTOBOOK
