Finding the perfect gift for a loved one can be difficult – especially when so many people already have everything they could ever want or need. Here, we take a look at five up and coming gift businesses, perfect to help you find something unique for a friend or family member on a special occasion.

  1. For those who are often travelling for business or holidays, the Away suitcase is an excellent gift. It is unique in that it comes with an ejectable battery which can be used to charge your phone on the go, so you can stay connected no matter how long the journey is. It also features an unbreakable shell as well as wheels which spin 360 degrees, making it really easy to handle.
  2. Websites and stores specialising in Islamic gifts are becoming more and more popular. They offer a wide range of religious gifts, including hijabs and pins, edible gifts, books and activities for children and many more.
  3. Knack is a company which helps you create and customize gift sets for just about anyone, for any occasion – whether someone is getting married or is dealing with a bad breakup! You can even choose which merchants you would like to support, such as very small companies or made in the USA. This is great, because you can choose a gift which really has some meaning and supports certain groups.
  4. Gift experiences are rising in popularity over material goods. There are loads of great companies you can use to buy a special friend a once in a lifetime experience. Choices are very varied, and range from driving a supercar to flying in a helicopter or hot air balloon to exclusive tours of some of the world’s most famous football stadiums. Experiences are a great choice for those friends who are notoriously difficult to buy for, and buy themselves everything they want.
  5. Also becoming more popular are gifts like naming a star or planting a tree for someone special. Again, these are ideal choices for those difficult-to-buy-for friends who already have all the physical goods they could ever want. There are some great, reputable companies where you can buy gifts like these online, and receive a certificate to hang on the wall showing your special gift.

Hopefully, you now have some inspiration to go and find a perfect gift for someone special in your life.…
