Have you decided that you want to give really unique presents to those on your Christmas list? Maybe last year you gave generic gifts because you waited until the last minute to shop, or simply because you had to hit the dollar stores because you were truly low on cash. For whatever reason, you have decided that this year's Christmas gifts will be exceptional. From buying engraved dog tag necklaces to going to pawnshops, here are some ideas that might help you as you shop for unique Christmas gifts.
Buy Personalized Engraved Dog Tags: Have you noticed how people's dogs are totally part of the family? What could be better than giving those on your Christmas list a fun gift for their dog? The dog might already have a dog tag, but consider buying a brand-new one in a fun design. For example, choose a bright color in the shape of a doggy bone or in the shape of a heart. Besides adding the dog's name and contact information, consider adding a short message on the engraved tag. For example, you could choose to have the words Best Pal or Cutest Pet as part of the engraving. And don't stop at buying engraved dog tags for pets. Consider buying them for people, too. For a truly excellent gift, consider giving a silver or gold personalized dog tag to somebody very close to you. Buy yourself a twin dog tag and tell the recipient of your gift that you can think of each other each time you wear the personalized dog tag. In fact, you could engrave your name and the recipient's names on opposite sides of the dog tag.
Shop At Pawn Shops: Consider looking for truly unique gifts at pawn shops in your area. For example, for a music lover on your Christmas list, consider buying a turntable and a few vinyl records which you will more than likely find at a pawnshop. Has someone in your life, say your mom or your dad, expressed an interest in learning how to play golf? At a pawnshop, you will probably find used golf clubs that will be in great condition. Think of going into the pawnshop with the attitude of confidently saying, "The perfect gift is in this store!" Then you will be able to open your mind to the numerous possibilities you didn't even consider when you went into the store.
