For the mother, keep things like a pack of chocolates and cookies in it.
Silver Plate
One of the most special and unique presents is to have a silver plate engraved with the time and date of birth of the child, engraved on it. This is also a memory of a lifetime!
A Collage
For parents hunting for unique gifts for children, a good idea is to make one yourself at home. Make a collage for your child which has all his photographs, right from his birth to his first birthday to the present. Paste a few photographs of his favorite things like an ice cream or a sports star or even an ostrich, if this is what he likes! Get the collage framed and hang it in his room before he wakes up.

For Occasions
Receiving a birthday present, whether one has turned ten or sixty, almost always brings a smile to one's face. Clothes, accessories, books, interior decor items, gadgets - there are numerous items to choose from. A unique idea - present something which the birthday boy or girl least expect from you. For this, let your imagination run wild.
Baby Shower
There are two ways of choosing baby shower presents. Give the would-be mother something that will help her in taking care of the baby, in the first few months after the baby is born. Going by this, laundry baskets, feeding products, cotton gloves, a crib, sleep sacks for the infant, make for some of the choices. However, if you are looking for something unique, you can give the mother something creative like a two or three tier diaper cake, made from disposable diapers! Make a "brag book" yourself and present it to the mother to record her little baby's rattlings.
Anniversary presents are meant for the most special person in your life i.e. your spouse. So, they should be very unique, creative, and thoughtful. After all your special someone deserves the best!
A good idea would be to plan a special day for your spouse, and give him or her a special treat.
The couple will be starting a fresh life, maybe shifting to a new house, post marriage. So, wedding presents should be such that they help them ease into this new life. If you are family or a close friend of the couple, you can ask them if they need any furniture item or a kitchen item such as a microwave, refrigerator, etc. and you can give the same to them.
The best gifts, whether for one's spouse, parents or friends, are those which consider the likes and needs of the person they are meant for. A gift can be fun, useful, thoughtful, or creative - it can be anything as long as the receiver feels special and unique upon receiving it!
