When you've just started dating somebody, and then the festive season comes around, the whole present debacle can be pretty awkward if it goes wrong.

Whether it's their birthday, Christmas day or just to show them a token of your appreciation (*wink*), if you get them the wrong gift, you can really miss the mark. 

You want to show them your best side when it comes to gift giving, so we've put together a group of gifts that are quirky, fun and niche.

They're essentially impossible not to love, no matter who you're dating right now.

It is no secret that we love a good G&T here at SHEmazing HQ, and our penchant for unicorns probably hasn't gone unnoticed either. 

So imagine our delight when we discovered that there is a unicorn gin out there in the world. 

Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur combines two of our favourite things, and we need it in our lives.

The pretty pastel bottle has an added extra we can't get enough of – iridescent sparkles distilled in with the gin.

So as well as just having adorable packaging, the gin itself has hints of unicorn magic to it. 

Described as a sweeter gin, it has notes of juniper (duh), candied orange and herbs.


A post shared by Firebox.com (@firebox) on

'Citrusy on the nose, the palate is luscious and flavoursome with an indulgent sweetness and flavours of candied orange, herbs and spice,' reads the notes description. 

You can purchase the mythical substance from Firebox (though they don't ship to Ireland, so you may need to Parcel Motel it over) or from Harvey Nichols.

We'll be taking ten bottles, thanks.


You might not believe us when we tell you the picture above actually isn't pizza at all. 

They're not even savoury in fact! Nope, these deliciously detailed pizza's are actually marshmallows with incredibly realistic dyes on them!

The very strange (but amazing) treats are the brainchild of Firebox, a self-proclaimed "shop for the unusual".

On the takeaway menu, the marshmallow pizza is available in Margherita, Hawaiian, Pepperoni and Vegetarian styles. 

It's fluffy, vanilla-flavoured and possibly one of the best gag gifts we have ever seen – especially because it's packaged in a real pizza box. 

You can order these sweet pizzas in two sizes, either an 8 inch, which will set you back €21.79 or 12 inch which costs €17.69. 

And if you really want to make this surprise gift that extra little bit special, you can ask the brand to print a custom message on the box lid. 

According to the site, these pizzas will stay good for four to six weeks once opened, but we doubt they we last that long around any sweet-lovers. 


Unicorns are mythical creatures, yes?

Ok good, glad we cleared that up. As disappointing as it is for many of us to admit, there are no unicorns hopping on the Luas and there have never been any reports of such an event occurring.

However, gin is not a myth and it is real. However, a new gin variation has arrived that has made us reconsider everything we always thought we knew about mythical creatures and good ole gin.

Gin made from unicorns tears and bottled with mystical silver is now a legitimate beverage. Yes, you did read that correctly.

The very inventive (we would go so far as to say genius) alcohol aficinados at Firebox have managed to bottle the sorrow of every Harry Potter fan’s favourite equine and turn into the new cocktail. We imagine hipsters everywhere are celebrating, if that is still a cool thing to do.

Referred to as “magical mother's ruin" the concoction even contains real silver pieces, so no risk of any werewolves coming along to ruin your day then. It also has some blood orange in there.

Unfortunately, there is one down side to the beverage: it is not cruelty free.

Firebox says "many, many unicorns were harmed in the making of this beverage", and that "those frisky little buggers aren’t easy to snag".

The gin will be launched on 25 September and if you’re feeling keen you can pre-order a bottle on the Firebox website for €55.
