Want to get weird this Christmas?

Whether it be for that friend who likes niche references or for someone who already has everything they need, quirky gifts always have a way to make the gift-giver especially unforgettable.

In case you're over getting people the usual basic gifts (since almost everything is available online anyway), here are the most unusual gifts you can get someone this Christmas season. 

Faux-bootleg shirts

Who wouldn't want to turn up to the party in a, uh, Willie Revillame shirt? Vintage Vibe Manila offers the most random references patterned after the oversized bootleg shirts of days passed.

For K-Pop fans, their shirts also come in BTS and BLACKPINK designs so you can stan in style.

Vintage Vibe Manila shirts are available on Shopee for P824 apiece.
Customized phone and notepads (Fosho Prints)

Hear us out, you might not think a customized iPhone case and notepads are a weird gift, but it has all the opportunity to be unusual depending on your design. For example, this viral TikTok shows a girlfriend giving her partner a phone case with her big smile and heart hands displayed on it. The possibilities are endless!

Fosho Prints phone cases are available for P325 while their notepads range from P110 - P200.
Tortilla blanket

This is your sign to transform into a warm tortilla filling during the holiday break. This gift is ideal for anyone who wants to be wrapped up like a cozy taco this Christmas.

The tortilla blanket is available on Shopee in a number of sizes and designs ranging from P449 to P889.
Toilet mug

Everyone needs that quirky novelty mug to give their other cups some spice. If you're feeling particularly cheeky, check out this toilet-shaped mug that could either elicit laughs or eyebrow raises.. Hey, you were looking for weird gifts anyway!

The Toilet Mug is available on Shopee for P488.
Giant AirPods speakers

Can't afford the actual AirPods for someone? Give them the next best (and cheapest) thing, actual AirPod Bluetooth speakers. Though we can't vouch for the sound quality of these budget speakers, it can be a great conversation piece.

The giant AirPods speaker is available on Shopee for P297.
Posing cat holder

If you do have that friend who has AirPods, consider these adorable posing cats who can hold up their earbuds in the most fashionable way. They can also hold up a number of other light items, such as pens, brushes, or lipsticks. Heck, you can even simply display them as sassy pieces in your work place.

The cat AirPods holder is available on Shopee for P39.
6-pack boyfriend pillow

For that friend who always says "Sana all," why not make their wishes come true this Christmas with this faux-boyfriend pillow? It even has six-pack abs for more of that unrealistic feature.

The Soft Boyfriend Arm Pillow is available on Shopee for P1,255 for the one arm variant, while a full upper body set goes for P1,686.
Keysmash Enter pillow

For the friend who may or may not have anger issues, this giant 'Enter' key provides the ultimate relief for those stressed-out workdays. Just make sure they don't break their hands with it.

The Anti-stress Enter Key is available on Shopee for P299.
