18 Unique Gifts That Your Favorite Creative People Will Love

Unique Gifts

When you hand someone a present, chances are that you're trying to achieve the holy grail of gift-giving. You are hoping that you've given them something that they'll love but wouldn't buy for themselves. Doing this is easier said than done. Great gift ideas come from listening and observing what your recipient has expressed interest in and filing it away for later—sometimes years! If you know that their hobbies are in the realm of creativity—such as art, books, or even jigsaw puzzles—you’re in luck. We have a collection of our favorite unique gifts at My Modern Met Store!

A gift doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel in order to delight and surprise your family and friends. Some of our most beloved and best-selling products are creative twists on everyday items. Shovava is one of the best examples of this; their scarves and shawls featuring elegant wing illustrations will take ordinary style to new heights. Another popular maker is design studio Nervous System. Their series of completely unique puzzles will be a welcome challenge for anyone who likes to assemble jigsaws and appreciates the world around them (and beyond).

Check out a smattering of unique gifts from My Modern Met Store below, and be sure to visit our site for our entire collection.
