Does she spend so much time in the kitchen and she enjoys it? Is he a pretty good cook and you can hardly wait for him to invite you over for lunch?

These kind of people will be pleased if you give them unique kitchen gifts. The first thing that popped up into my mind was a mug. That’s common, I guess. I’m sure every kitchen is full of mugs. But I’m talking about a really special design mug, the face-mug, that has an open mouth, where you can put cookies.

Before we get to the latest kitchen gadgets, let’s focus on the aprons. They are customizable with different funny writings, names and drawings. She or he will love to wear your gift while cooking. Make the cook feel like a star with a chef cap embroidered with his or her name. And because you opt for originality, a handmade and hand-painted coffee set (Turkish coffee sets are exotic) is a good option.

Searching for bigger gift?. Buy a whole set of handcrafted ceramic or porcelain tableware. Unique and useful. A classy handmade tea pot mustn’t lack from the kitchen, as it sets a certain mood, especially in the cold evenings. If you manage to find a really beautiful one, it will be like a kitchen table sculpture.

Tea and coffee are usually served together with cookies, so once you bought the teapot or the coffee set, find a handmade cookie jar to fit in with the set. You’ve already brought salt and pepper to that person’s life, it’s time you brought a pepper mill. The original, unique ones have really unconventional designs, for example a rubik’s cube. But what really impressed me was the baseball bat pepper mill. It’s not that easy to use, since it has the actual size of a baseball bat, but it’s fun. Make wine opening fun too with the bluebird wine corckscrew.

What would you say about a home cotton candy maker? Is it a good gift for that person? If she or he has always dreamed of cotton candy clouds, yes. On the other hand a saw and trowel cake serving kit helps cut the birthday cake faster and safer. If the cook can’t resist the temptation of sticking her or his hand into the cake batter, a batter finger shaped spatula could be useful. So we have another funny unique kitchen gift. And quite cheap too.

When somebody moves into a new house, one of the best presents you can give him or her is a lamp. Actually it’s a perfect present for a birthday too. You can add a thoughtful message to it like: “Let the light into your life” and there you have the unique gift.

When I say lamp, the first thing that crosses your mind can be the old lamp you had when you were little. I’m not talking here about classical lamps, I’m talking about original, unusual, different lamps as unique gifts. The Bottle of Milk lamp is funny. But even funnier is the Milk Gone Bad lamp, in the shape of the milk cartons. I don’t know who came up with the idea, but it’s catchy, let’s face it. “I brought you milk for the party cocktails. Oh, actually it’s your present. Actually it’s a lamp”.

Maybe the wet lamp hasn’t convinced you. The liquid lamp is more amazing. Try this one as a gift. Just don’t give it to a cleaning maniac: the lamp seems to have liquid flowing out of it. You need something colored, bright and playful and you’re wondering if you can find a lamp like that. Yes, you can. The Twist Together lamp allows the owner to play around with its shape and it’s so joyful. A good present for cheerfully decorated houses.

This sounds like a toy lamp, but there’s another one that resembles more with a toy. That’s the teddy-bear lamp. The body of the bear is holding the light bulb, covered by the lamp hat.

So do lamps, and the Martyr lamp hangs on to the plug, also being an energy saver item. Just take a look at it. Isn’t it a unique gift? And pretty funny too.

A very useful well-designed lamp that occupies little space and has a double use is the read lamp. It is split in two sides with enough space to keep a book or two there. So it’s not only a lamp, but also a magazine stand. You can also get a unique custom lamp for somebody, according to that somebody’s personality, hobbies and so on. Like the Light the Drum lamp or the Trumpet Lamp for the music lovers or musicians. I would also like to mention here the Sailboat Lamp and the Sailing Ship Lamp.

Here We Stand (the unity song)

Here we are, face to face/ Brought here together/ By God’s amazing grace
Into your eyes, I see myself/ Living a life/ I’ve always dreamed about…

And as I stand here before you/ I can’t help but adore you…

Here we stand, In this moment now/ I give my heart, I give my love
This is my vow/ To you I swear and I promise to/ Give all I can, All I am/ I give to you

Here we are, hand in hand/ United as one/ By the promise of our love
I open my heart, and let you in/ To live there forever/ As a lover and a friend

Here we are, face to face/ Brought here together/ By God’s Amazing grace…

Isn’t that exactly what you feel when you are in front of the aisle, ready to tell your vows to your beloved spouse?

This Ring (another unity song)

I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long an answered prayer,
I know you are the one/ I give to you my heart and soul
With a love that will never grow old/ In my life, I can see
That you were made for me/ You’ll be there to catch me if I fall
All the days, I have prayed and the love that I have saved
With this ring, I’m giving you my all/ I thank God for the gift He has given me
A love that’s strong for all of eternity/ I give to you all of my days
With a love for all of your ways/ In my life, I can see
That you were made for me/ I’ll be there to catch you if you fall
In the days that we grow old/ The times may change but our love will remain
As we look back on this day now/ We stood the test of time Living the promise of our vow

Dance With Me (the bride and groom first dance)

The day is here and the time has come/ For you and I, together as one
For a lifetime/ United we’ll be/ So take my hand and Dance With Me

Let’s celebrate for the world to see/ We’ll have a lifetime to make our history

So c’mon baby and Dance With Me/ All eyes are watching/ As I draw you near

And as we dance it’s perfectly clear/ That I’m the luckiest guy that I know
To hold you in my arms till I’m old/ Oh…we’ll dance together/ Oh…we’re gonna dance forever

This moment now will come and go/ But when it’s gone I want you to know
There’s not one thing that I’d rather do/ Than stop the world and dance with you.

The perfect description of the feelings you have during your first dance when all eyes are on you.11
