Buying gifts for the holiday season, birthdays, and other gift-giving occasions is always tough. But try thinking outside the box for a change and you might find some new things to be inspired by. I’ve looked at some of the gifts you may have overlooked or never even considered this year. It’s allowed me to come up with some great ideas to inspire you with.
Here are some of the gifts you didn’t think to buy, but you probably should.
A pair of eyeglasses adds a subtle touch to a person’s look and is practical at the same time. The Coyote Polarized Bifocal Sun Reader is a great example of a pair of eyeglasses that will give you perfect vision even on the sunniest of days.
Or take a look at the Coyote Polarized Reader for a sporty pair of unisex sunglasses. These sun readers will protect your eyes and the non-glare lenses will give you the functionality anyone could want from a pair of eyeglasses.
Plush toys are always a great addition to any child’s life. But now you can give them an education at the same time with GIANTmicrobes. You’ll show them the interesting things that go into their body every single day and provide them the important knowledge they’ll use later in life.
Who could have thought vitamins could be so cute?
Plus, teachers love receiving them as gifts too. I gave the boys teachers some items from GIANTmicrobes for Christmas and they absolutely loved them.
Drink, Laugh, Paint
Spruce up that next get together with the Drink, Laugh, Paint set. This innovative gift brings together an interest in art with an interest in drinking.

They’re not just pretty to look at, though. They’re made from tough materials that resist fading and are designed to last.
Make playtime fun again with this excellent innovation in crafting. Kids love to make things, but they often create a mess. Rather than things that stick or things that can easily go missing, try out the Playfoam Combo Pack.
