Have one of those hard to shop for people on your shopping list? Someone who has a unique style and likes to think outside the box?

Well, we’ve got your back. Here are five ideas for a one of a kind Christmas, Hanukkah or whatever-kind-of-gift-you-need gift.

1.  Vintage Butterfly Terrarium – For the Nature Lover

Though these look like butterflies, these winged creatures are actually sunset moths. The sunset moth is native to Madagascar, and the brilliance of its coloring and shape rivals most butterflies.

Our vintage glass vitrine features two sunset moths posed on a driftwood branch paired with dried flowers in vase. This glass terrarium would look fantastic on a bookcase, coffee table or anywhere your loved one wants to add bohemian style vibes. This would make a great gift for a nature lover, or anyone who loves butterflies.

2. Hootin' Cute Vintage Owl Bookends – For the Bookworm

We think these owl bookends are extra cute. This bookend pair has definite 70s style vibes. Just imagine setting these little cuties on a bookshelf next to a collection of plants and macrame. This set would make a wonderful gift for the book lover on your shopping list. 

3. Swan Song Vintage Brass Planter – For the Brass Collector

Your favorite brass collector will love this sweet, little swan planter. It would look fantastic with succulent planted in it, or they can leave it bare to emphasize its brass beauty. Check one more thing off your shopping list, and grab this swan planter for that person who adores all things brass.

4. Cabin Chic Upcycled Plaid Valances – For the Cabin Junkie

Got someone on your list whose happy place is up north at the cabin? Or maybe just their version of urban cabin? We created these two matching plaid valances from a vintage Pendleton-style blanket.  Whether their cabin is up north or in the city, this pair will make the perfect gift for anyone who loves that rustic style.

5. Glam It Up Upcycled Wood Table and Chairs – For the Glamour Gal or Guy

This upcycled, vintage table and chair set would make the perfect git for anyone who likes the glamour in glamping, minus that pesky outdoors part. 

We painted the wood dining table and chairs with General Finishes Lamp Black Milk Paint. Then we painted the caning of 3 of the chair backs gold. And to really heighten the glamour, we covered the 4th chair back with white faux fur. Yes honey, (faux) FUR.
