Unusual Christmas Gift Ideas for Men
Give a man something unusual for Christmas. (a gift image by Sandi Chetwynd from Fotolia.com)

When the holidays roll around, get the men on your Christmas gift list something unusual. Unusual gifts are not necessarily tacky or gag gifts---they are things the recipient finds interesting. Many times recipients of unusual gifts did not even know the item existed. When shopping for unusual items to give as gifts for Christmas, consider their novelty and utility.

Flameless Hand Warmer

Perfect for the outdoor enthusiast, flameless hand warmers manufactured by the same companies that make lighters provide heat for up to 24 hours and only use less than half an ounce of fuel. These hand warmers last longer than the popular disposable ones and are refillable. Flameless hand warmers are small enough to place in a pocket or mitten and are perfect for those who like to tailgate, go camping, fish or work outdoors for a living.

Brain Freeze Ice Tray

If the man on your Christmas gift list is a genius (or likes to think he is), give him a Brain Freeze ice tray. These trays form four large ice cubes shaped like brains. These ice trays also make unusual gifts to give straight-A students, professors and brain surgeons.


Get the astronomer in your life---whether he is a professional or an amateur---a Moonwatch. This watch, which is also perfect for watch-collectors, tells users the time by the hour or by the phase of the moon. The designers of the Moonwatch, The Emotion Lab, created this gadget to help wearers gain a better understanding of the moon's cycles and the status of their emotions.

Penny Farthing Bike

Those who love collecting antiques, are a little retro in their design choices or love riding bicycles might enjoy a Penny Farthing bike. Also called "high" bicycles, these redesigned bicycles are modelled after the popular models created by James Starley in the mid-19th century. Today's version of the Penny Farthing has a 36-inch front wheel with anti-slip pedals, a 12-inch rear wheel and rear brakes, spring suspension on the seat and all the safety features of a modern bicycle.

Temporary Tattoo Maker

If a man loves the look of tattoos, but cannot decide on a design to permanently place on his body, get him a programmable tattoo system called moodINQ. This temporary tattoo maker creates the look of a tattoo on its user without the commitment of one. The only permanent part of this gift is the e-ink canvas that a professional must implant. This procedure is painless, according to Ink Art Tattoos, and heals within three days. Once the e-ink canvas in place, the recipient of this gift only has to upload an image from the moodINQ database to a special wand. The wand, which looks like one checkers at grocery stores have, allows the man who received this gift to erase and change his temporary tattoo design.
