The Most Unique Gifts on Groupon
Gift giving can be stressful. No matter the occasion—birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, the list goes on—the pressure to deliver that one perfect gift can get very real. Finding cool gifts that are also meaningful and unique is usually pretty difficult. So to help out the wayward gift-giver look beyond bland gift ideas, we dove into our trove of products and deals to find these: eight of the most unique gifts on Groupon. They'll go a long way toward making you look like a hero, and you'll save some money, too. Win-win.
1. Turn them into a bobblehead.
Dress up and pose a friend, spouse, or even your pet however you want with this desk item, which is just as much a paper weight as it is a fun conversation starter.
2. Reveal their future.
It's tough to argue that there are more valuable or unique gifts out there than the knowledge of someone's future love life, career prospects, or luck. And it's way more fun than just giving someone a magic 8-ball.
3. Turn them into an amateur chef.
Let your gift recipient unleash their inner Wolfgang Puck in a cooking class. The Groupon inventory is always stocked with classes focused on cuisines and cooking styles from around the world. The best part? You can volunteer as a test audience for any food they make.
4. Send them skydiving.
If you're buying for an adrenaline junkie, things don't get much more extreme than this. And if you're worried about how pricey skydiving can be, deals on Groupon can be found with discounts close to 40%.
5. Make them the hero of their tailgate.
Every great tailgate has two things: cold drinks and novelty items festooned with your NFL team's logos and colors. With this foldable tube, the fan for whom you're gifting can liven up pregame parties with frosty drinks and team spirit literally strapped to their back.
6. Find them a worthy beer-pong opponent.
Know someone who's never been challenged at the beer-pong table? The Pongbot—a five-cup holster that glides and darts in random directions—will put their cup-sinking skills to the ultimate test.
7. Give them a beard Lincoln himself would envy.
Having a full, long beard is cool. Having a full, long beard that's brushed, conditioned, and oiled is very cool. With a beard-care kit, you can give them the tools to craft a beard that's Honest Abe–approved (we assume).
8. Let them live their Days of Thunder dreams.
Burning around a racetrack in pursuit of checkered-flag glory isn't just for the likes of Cole Trickle or Ricky Bobby. By browsing Groupon, you can find deals for your gift recipient that puts them in the driver's seat of an F1 car, NASCAR stock car, Ferrari, or other high-powered speed machines.
