While some people appreciate the more typical gifts such as sweaters and gift cards, others may desire a present that demonstrates a bit more imagination. Kitschy gifts, in particular, such as throwback toys for grown-ups, allow you to provide the recipient with an item that she wants but never buys for herself, as she regards it as a non-necessity. An unusual gift can also decrease the chances of duplicating presents with another partygoer.

Muppet Whatnot Workshop

FAO Schwarz offers a Muppet Whatnot Workshop (as of 2010) where customers can design their own muppets either online or in stores, the only such facility available anywhere. You can devise the kitschy gift using a design that you think the recipient would like. For instance, the site allows you to choose from a variety of body types, as well as eyes, hair and nose options. The designer may also pick out an outfit for the muppet, including such options as a cheerleading uniform, a football jersey or a princess dress with a tiara.

Instant Cameras

While most people own digital cameras, few own instant cameras anymore, even though a few major companies still manufacture them. The kitschy yet functional retro cameras offer instant photos, with some producing small, credit-card-sized photos that develop in just a few minutes. Although most of these cannot handle action shots like digital cameras, many offer a variety of settings for different locations and lighting scenarios, such as indoor or cloudy. Most current models feature built-in flashes as well for added clarity.

Soda Makers

A number of major manufacturers now produce personal soda makers as small kitchen appliances. You can use the device to make flavoured water drinks, carbonated water and both diet and non-diet sodas. The soda makers typically include starter kits featuring such items as one-liter bottles, a carbonator and a variety of different soda mix flavours. As an added perk, the soda mixes do not include corn syrup, the decidedly unhealthy ingredient found in most sodas. The appliance also offers eco-friendly perks as it helps cut back on the purchase of plastic bottles and aluminium cans.
