Unusual gifts for her? We've got you covered!

It’s hard not to be cliché sometimes with gift ideas for women, but we can help you be a little more unusual and creative with your gifting. If there’s a wife, sister, mum, daughter or aunt in your life who’s notoriously hard to buy for, don’t worry. We have you covered. Even those tricky workplace leaving gifts that need inspired and thoughtful input can be a doddle. Whoever you are looking to buy for and whatever the budget, we can get you sorted. Here are our top ten inspiring and unusual gifts for her ideas. Shadow Foam, the gift that really does keep on giving!


Whatever the woman in your life collects, chances are it’s pretty special to her right? And often pretty valuable too? Maybe it’s even a family heirloom in which case it could be priceless to her. Using Shadow Foam to protect your collection is the best way of keeping them organised, safe and secure. Plus, keep items free from damage in the longer term, even when moved around from place to place. Importantly, if something is taken out or removed, it’s really obvious if it’s not replaced. That way you can ensure that the precious items aren’t lost.

So whether it’s knives, figures, memorabilia, coins, cars, medals or anything, what greater gift could there be than future-proofing them and protecting them longer term using Shadow Foam? Not only that but the items look awesome when presented beautifully like this! They’ll love showing off their valued collections to everyone! Whatever box, case or drawer you want to kit out to hold the collection, there is a way of achieving it.
