What do you give to the person that has everything? Especially at Christmas? Well, your choices range from what they expect to the unusual. Well, I do not know about you, but the unusual is what is also most likely to be remembered, even cherished. This Christmas, consider the following gifts that most likely will be gladly received and not forgotten.

1. Monogrammed vintage stocking.
If your gift recipient loves to hang her stocking by the fireplace with care, then why not consider a vintage stocking? It provides a timeless gift, one made of thick wool and lined in cotton. Choose seasonal red and green colors or opt for brown or blue. Each stocking is monogrammed with the person’s first initial with their full name underneath. Measuring nearly 20 inches long, it can be stuffed full of their favorite gifts. Available from Red Envelope for about $30.

2. Neck and shoulder massager.
Here is the perfect gift for the person plagued by neck or shoulder pain. An iNeed neck and shoulder massager with heat provides relief by releasing energy pulses that penetrate sore muscles and relieve tightness. You can choose from energize, pulse and soothe settings and deactivate the heat function, if desired. It provides welcome relief, a gift sold by Brookstone for $100.

3. Bluetooth gloves.
If you know someone that loves to talk on the phone, give them a Bluetooth device that is just right for the winter. Bluetooth gloves allow anyone to talk on the phone without removing their gloves. A speaker is concealed in the left thumb and a microphone is embedded in the pinky. Make a simple hand gesture and a call is initiated. Your recipient will avoid frostbite and you’ll give a gift from the Sharper Image for $80.

4. Ballpark blueprints.
Do you have an avid baseball fan in the family? Perhaps this person has been to their favorite stadium so many times that they can walk around it blindfolded. Chances are, however, they have never seen the blueprint for their favorite house of baseball, a document that offers stadium details like nothing else. Find all your favorite fields including Fenway Park, AT&T Field, Yankee Stadium, Wrigley Field and others. Available from Uncommon Goods for $185. If you don’t see your stadium, make a request and they may be ale to fulfill your wish.

5. Custom bobbleheads.
You have seen bobbleheads, but have you ever seen one that looks suspiciously like your best friend, your spouse or even your family pet? Well, thanks to photographic and molding technologies, a small likeness of the person or pet you want to gift to can be made. Choose a fully customizable single bobblehead or choose pet or a multiple person bobbleheads. Priced from $144 to $600 and available from CustomBobbleHeads.com, you’ll give them a gift that they’ll never forget. How could they? It will look just like them!

6. Stock his man cave.
For the guy with a man cave, you can probably think about different ways to make his abode more comfortable. You could surprise him by stocking his fridge with his favorite snacks and brew, fill up his closet with soft goods or buy him that 64-inch full plasma high-definition television. Or you could opt for a very practical and very memorable cotton pillow from Zazzle that proclaims, "Home Sweet Man Cave." Made from 100 percent grade A cotton, it is a machine washable pillow that is fully customizable too. Buy him a 13 x 21 inch lumbar pillow for $53.

7. Breast cancer awareness gear.

It is so very hip to wear swag that proclaims your support for breast cancer awareness. If you have a friend or family member that has shown her support to battle this disease and she also loves football, why not choose an NFL affinity pink scarf to tout her support? From Lakeside.com comes acrylic scarves imprinted with many of your favorite teams including the Packers, Colts and Bears. It also comes imprinted with an important saying: Annual Screening Saves Lives. It is a $12 gift that she will cherish.
