Have you ever had to find a gift for someone that seems to have everything? Or, have you ever needed a gift for a person that you don’t know that well or for a friend or family member and you simply do not know what to give them? Here are a few ideas for fun and unusual gifts that are sure to leave an impression and put a smile on the person that receives it.
Become a Lord or Lady: Buy a plot of land in the Scottish Highlands, the area is a part of the Keil Estate which is about 15 miles southwest of Glencoe. The plots of land range from $49.99 for 1 square foot to $799.99 for 1,000 square feet and have a variety of perks depending upon the price you pay. “Buying any of these plots legitimizes your claim to have become a Lord or Lady in a fun and novelty way. ‘Laird’ is a Scottish word, meaning landowner. The female variation of the title is Lady, and ‘Laird’ translates into English as ‘Lord’.” (http://www.highlandtitles.com/buy-your-plot/)
Become a Laird or Lady of Dunans Castle: This is similar to the previous gift but instead you are buying a piece of a castle and/or the surrounding grounds in order to restore it to its former glory. There are gift packages designed for individuals, couples or families to suit the need of the buyer or gift giver. The castle is located in Glendaruel, a glen in the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, Scotland. The price range is listed in British pounds and ranges from 39 – 420. http://scottishlaird.com/
