It can be quite difficult to get the perfect gift for that special someone. After all, everybody is into different things and, what one recipient might hate, another will think is the best gift they received this year.
While some people prefer traditional gifts like jewellery or books, others prefer their gifts to be a little more unique and that is what this list is all about.
Just so you know, I have tried to keep all the gifts listed here within a reasonable price range. After all, while it would be awesome to have a Water Jet Pack or an Underground Parking Dock, most of us cannot afford to give such things as a gift.
So, in the interest of those poor sods stuck searching out gifts for the more eccentric among us, here is my top ten list of unusual Christmas presents, from ten to one:
Gold Plated Playing Cards
These playing cards, coated in real 24 carat gold, are the perfect gift for those friends who just have to impress the neighbours.

Racing Grannie and Grandpa
Wind up Grannie and Gramps and see which wins the race. Perfect for kids and drunk adults.
$18.99 at Yellow Octopus
Why use a boring normal corkscrew when you can use a legless one? Perfect for the pirate in your life.

The Useless Box
This box has no use except as a novelty gag gift. When you switch it on, a finger pops out and switches it off again. This is a great gift for people who like things for their own sake rather than what they can do for people.

Follow Me, Bring Beer Sand Imprint Thongs
These thongs are a great gift for the laid-back Aussie in your life.
