Christmas is an exciting time of year as we enjoy classic films, getting together with family and giving each other presents. The lead up to the big day can be as equally stressful as it is exciting, as you scramble around to find the best present for every special person in your life. No matter how many gift ideas pages you read, sometimes it’s difficult to find the best thing even as the days start to escape you.
Every person is unique with their own tastes, with some being quirkier than others. These people can be the most difficult to buy for, leaving you a little worried you won’t get them anything ahead of 25th December.
Don’t worry, Deakin & Francis is here to help you find the best gifts so you can tick off the rest of the names on your list. Read on to discover our pick of the most unusual last minute Christmas gifts.
Do you know someone who is a gym freak? If they’ve really got into the gym lately and want to show off their love for their lifestyle, why not buy them these elegant Dumbbell Gold Finish Cufflinks? The gold finish to these cufflinks is ideal for catching the eye of those you come across. The simplistic design makes them perfect for everyday wear and for slipping into their stocking at the last minute.
Bumble Bee Cufflinks
While they are a familiar feature of the countryside, the appearance of bumble bees in other ways is quite unusual. Our Sterling Silver Bumble Bee Cufflinks will create quite a buzz whenever they are worn. The vibrant black and yellow enamel design, married beautifully with the cabochon sapphire eyes, offers a perfect accessory for any recipient.
The bulldog is synonymous with Britain. This tough-as-nails dog breed is symbolic of the resilient nature of the country throughout history, most famously during the Second World War. If you are struggling to find something for someone who is quite patriotic or who loves bulldogs, our Luxury Bulldog Corkscrew fits the bill. It will sit proud and ready for action at a dinner party and add a bit of style to the recipient’s home at the same time.

If you’re looking for an unusual last-minute gift for someone who can come across a bit moody at times, why not poke fun at them a little and give them something stylish at the same time? Our Grumpy Gorilla Decanter features a traditional square spirit style glass, handmade by craft workers at Dartington Crystal, finished off by our striking gorilla head. With a size of 65cl, it will hold plentiful spirits in anyone’s home while making for a great unusual Christmas gift.
Skull Candle Holder
Christmas is the time of year to break out the scented candles as people want to get those festive smells around the home. That is why they make for a great last-minute gift! As this is a list of unusual last minute Christmas gifts, we’ve put our own “humerus” twist on what you know a candle holder to be.

Viking Lapel Pin
Lapel pins offer a great way to elevate an outfit, allowing you to stand out from the crowd. Unusual lapel pins are certainly unforgettable, especially when it features a hairy viking! Inspired by the infamous Scandinavian pirates, the wearer can bring out their wild side as the long hair flows out of the black oxidised helmet. The pearly enamelled horns are iconic of the viking era, which shines almost as much as the red ruby eyes. While it’s incredibly stylish, the unusual look of this lapel pin will certainly surprise someone this Christmas.
