For The Cooks: For that aspring chef in your life here are a few things that will brighten up their kitchen and spirits as they spend their days making magic in the kitchen. The bowls are perfect for serving and a hand-held blender is great for the friend that makes mashed potatoes or protein shakes and doesn't want the hassle of all the clean up. If you want to go the extra mile, consider getting a recipe book and filling it with your favorite family recipes and collect favorite recipes from family and friends. These gifts are sure to be a hit for that lovely cook.

1. Bowls, 2. Recipe Book, 3. Blender, 4. Cutting Board, 5. Knives

For The Nesters: Finding a unique and colorful piece to brighten up the home is always a good route to go for the friend who just moved or the couple who just married. The perfect pieces can add a little hint of color in the right spots and will be a staple in their home for years to come. Made By Girl offers custom colorful prints so you can add a last name to be hung in the living room or a baby's name for the nursery. Either way this gift will be a thoughtful addition to any home.

1. Candle Holders, 2. Knot Pillow, 3. Lamp, 4. Custom Name Print

For The Men: Oh the men. Us ladies can all agree for shopping for men isn't the easiest of tasks. So here are a few colorful and unique items that will get them excited. Let's highlight "The Present" a brand new clock that takes a full year to complete. The purpose and thought behind this idea is very interesting and worth checking out. Other items include a Tattly box, filled with faux tattoos, and a Tokyo Flash watch. It is worth giving honorable mention to a gift that is just as awesome, but a little different. Quarterly.co offers unique packages curated and sent by top designers and influencers. If your guy wants a little inspiration, this is a great way to go.

1. Tattly Box, 2. "The Present" Clock  3. Quote Books 4. Tokyo Flash Watch  5. Crumpled Map

For the Crafter: For that creative person in your life, consider an easy DIY project that will make all the difference to them. Yarn Letters, Wall Art, or a DIY holiday ornament are great suggestions that will add something special to their collection of goodies. And the best part is, they will keep your gift for years to come and always remember where it came from.

1. DIY Letters 2. DIY Wall Art 3. Ornament, 4. DIY Dryer Balls

For the Gals: I chose a few great ideas for any girl, but of course the list could go on and on, couldn't it? Colourful headbands or some statement bangles will be well-received by that special gal in your life. Last but not least are a pair of sparkly shoe clips that she can add to any pair of shoes to give it that extra special something.

1. Headband, 2. Bracelets, 3. Bando Shoe Clips

The Tech Snob: Yeah, you know who I'm talking about. There's always that one person on your list who has to get anything techy the moment it becomes available. So what does someone like this always need? Something to organize, show off and/or protect their investments.

1. CableDrop Cord Clips 2. SHOWWX+ (iPhone, iPad, iPod) 3. Lemon Yellow Elephant March - iPad Sleeve 4. Kindle Fire Case

Who couldn't use a cable organizing system? They come in a variety of colors so go loud, muted or plain white for the extreme minimalist if need be. A simple, yet affordable gift or stocking stuffer.

Anyone in love with their iDevice would be amped to receive something to utilize it even further by enabling it to show off their photo gallery as a slideshow, movies and even streaming content. Lastly, Etsy is chock full of sleeves, cases and covers for almost any tech device at decent prices and many amazing colors and pattern schemes to choose from.

1. mugoplayer 2. case-mate DIY cases (done COLOURlovers style) 

Finally, if you're trying to find that super unique gift for the computer user and music lover on your list, check out a mugo player. These super funky designer dual MP3 & USB characters will be a fast favorite!

Alicialoveslife

Wow! I love everything on here! Especially the cook ideas. The binding on the cookbook gives me such inspiration. . .

The idea is to bring items you see outside of what we posted as gifts in the blog post. But we also love hearing that you liked what we posted! :D

@Alicialoveslife and @warriorliz

If you'd like to be considered in the selection please try to find (and link / place picture) something in addition to what you love in the post. We LOVE hearing what you loved within the post but were looking for outside inspiration as well. :)

Even, for example, @warriorliz, you could post one of the other bowls featured on anthropologie page.

Hope that helps and is clear for you two and everyone else placing submissions.

Have fun! Excited to see what kind of things COLOURlovers find out there. Loving the FASHIONARY SIBLING @Dupsie - and quite colorful!

No problem! :) Just making sure in case you were - you still had the opportunity.

Ohhhh I adore stitching floss. Would love to see your project idea. :)

@Alicialoveslife wow! Well I hope someone picks you up some floss. :) I've been really wanting to embroider over a men's necktie. Haven't had the opportunity yet. My husband wears a tie for work so I thought it would be fitting. :)

Alicialoveslife

That sounds like such a fun and unique project! Too bad I don't have any menfolk who wear ties *pout* I bet you would make something amazing. If you made yourself a matching head band or neck scarf or something it would be KILLER adorable. : D

Oh, I've been wanting one of those stick blenders to go with my new, healthier lifestyle. :-) Now I just have to decide on green or silver.

My colorful gift would be new bedding for my master. I'm tired of the black, white and hot pink. I want something more vibrant in my room.

Do you have an inspirational link/image online that you could portray this idea on here for the rest of us to better visualize it?

Awesome that you like those in the post. It's fun that a lot of non-traditional product lines are becoming so much more colorful.

IF you would like to be in the running for the case-mate DIY case giveaway, please find something unique to the post here that you would like(maybe something else you want online)? :) What else works for your healthy, colorful new lifestyle

Love the DIY Letters. So many possibilities for every room! I also could really use the Cable/Cord clips to help get the mess tidied up. Thanks for the links that you share. I would love to have a Casemate for my iPhone 4.

If you want to be in the running for the case-mate DIY case, then please post something colorful you would like that's NOT on our guide. :) Looking for extra colorful items out there that people may like/want. :)
