2018 Offbeat Gift Guide: 25 holiday surprises for grown-ups of all ages

WASHINGTON — Finding a great gift is not always as simple as picking something trendy and typing in a credit card number. Just because a gift is fancy doesn’t mean your loved one will like it.

(Or at least that’s what those made-for-TV Christmas movies keep saying.)

Great gifts don’t have to be expensive or even trendy. They can be unique. They can even be funny and, yeah, somewhat useless.

Thing is, they’re not just available anywhere.

Here’s a gallery of offbeat gift ideas for grown-ups as you put together your shopping list. All were lovingly curated by our crack staff at the WTOP Holiday Desk.
