First name Z gifts for him or her

First name gifts are clever additions to alphabet gift baskets. Be on the lookout for products that carry the giftee’s first name. The list below gives you an starter list. Personal care products work well, but if you can find a snack or treat item that starts with someone’s name, good for you! This won’t work for every name, but it’s worth trying.

Unique Z gifts for adults

Looking for unique gifts for your friends or family members whose names start with Z? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are some unique Z gifts for adults that are sure to impress:

Zilicone Valet silicone spoon rest

Here is a quality budget item AND a gift that starts with the letter Z: a Zilicone Valete spoon rest. This handy little silicone kitchen utensil accessory provides a spot to rest a spoon in use.

There was something about the Zilicone Valet product pictures that caught my eye: the valet has a hole for hanging – next to your stove top is you wish. It is wide enough to provide a resting spot for other kitchen tools in action, such as slotted spoon, tongs, ladles. Remember that this BPA-free silicone is heat resistant.

To be fair, there are lots of silicone spoon rests of Amazon that come in lots of shapes and sizes. I don’t think any of them would let you down.

Ziplock bag organizer

These wooden organizers for plastic bags are all the rage. They seemed like a good idea, but it wasn’t until I watched The Minimal Mom on Youtube that I became a believer. Dawn has a house full of kids and still manages to rock the minimalist lifestyle. I’m not “all-in” like Dawn is, but her passion and encouragement is like a fire under me purging my house.

This woman who has no quams about throwing most stuff away and sizing down, has sung the praises of ziplock bag organizers. If it’s Dawn’s dirty littly pleasure, then that’s all the endorsement I need.

Find ziplock bag organizers (and plastic wrap, wax paper, and foil roll organizers) on Etsy or Amazon for yourself or a friend.

Ziese wipes

If you’re looking for a gift that starts with the letter Z for a gift basket, toss in some Ziese wipes. Ziese wipes are glass cleaners for eyeglass lenses, computer screens, and camera lenses.

My kids are grown, so instead of Christmas stockings, they get Christmas baskets. None of them want trinkets and junk, so I fill it with practical stocking stuffers, like lens cleaners. What do I hear from them, “Mom, you have anymore of those glass cleaners?”

Practical gifts that do what they are supposed to do, really make the best gifts of all!

Zippo Lighter

A Zippo lighter is a classic gift idea that never goes out of style. These lighters are known for their durability and reliability, making them a great gift for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities like camping or hiking.

According to Zippo history, founder George G. Blaisdell set out to make a lighter that could perform well in windy conditions. George had such faith in his products that he trademarked his warranty, It works or we fix it free.™

Zippos make great gifts because they come in many different designs to choose from, including sports teams, hobbies and decorative/artwork lines. The etching, and 3d relief are popular Zippo styles. Zippo lighters can also be engraved with a message, or a custom photograph. You can even send in your own artwork for a custom Zippo lighter

Zippo makes other products as well: handwarmers, eyewear, and firestarters.

Zodiac gifts

For a more personalized gift idea, consider gifting your friend or family member with a piece of zodiac jewelry. From zodiac necklaces to zodiac bracelets, there are plenty of options to choose from that will reflect their unique personality and style.

If your giftee isn’t into jewelry, there are lots of other zodiac gifts to choose from: blankets, tumblers, pillows, shirts, candles, cups, even toiletry bags. Next to birthstone and monogrammed gifts, zodiac presents are a nice way to add personalization to a gift.

Zebra gifts

The world values the attractive black and white stripes of the zebra animal. If your friend, coworker, or loved one is a zebra lover or just loves the black and white zebra stripes, this is a zebra gift opportunity!

Many a stylish woman and man have donned attractive zebra tops, scarves, pants, leggings, coats, shoes – anything to push the exotic and wild zebra print look. Zebra fashion wear has proved to be a timeless look.

Find zebra prints for dresses, zebra shoes, handbags, and other accessories (even zebra nails!).

Zebra print gifts are popular for clothing, accessories, and home decor.

Zebra novelty gifts

The zebra theme continues, with zebra-themed gifts for fun and the home. How about a zebra stand to set your eyeglasses on? Or a Zebra onesie to join in on the adult onesie fad? Don’t stop there, purchase zebra journals and zebra artwork.

Apple Zestar!

I could have gone the easy route, and presented a zester tool. Turns out, that there is a popular variety of apple, known as the Apple Zestar! that is often misspelled as “apple zester”. Learn more about the Apple Zestar variety from the University of Minnesota.

First, let’s clear up that there is no such thing as an “apple zester.” If you’re searching for that, yolikely spelling this apple variety wrong – or you’re really looking for an “apple grater.”

Left: image of zester tool used on lemons; right: a crate of Zestar apples.

If that is the case, get yourself the Betty Bossi Apple Grater. Honestly, their really isn’t a dedicated apple grater out there, either (except the Betty Bossie). Any old cheese grater will get the job done. If you want to stay on the theme of gifts that start with the letter Z, select a zester, (or an apple grater and call it a zester) or locate some tasty Zestar! apples for a delicious Z-themed gift. Sites like Honeycrisp.com will deliver them right to your door!

I have never grated apples. If you’re curious, grated apple can be used in a variety of ways, such as:

Zebra brand pens

Wait people! I have one more zebra gift for gifts that start with the letter Z – ZEBRA pens. The ZEBRA pens tag line: “Find Zen in Your Pen” – who wouldn’t fall for that? Actually, that is the name of their mascot, “Zen” the Zebra. Oh, and their mission statement: “We earn our stripes so that we can create loyal and happy users.”

I would highly recommend watching the short video of Zen the Zebra walking you through all of the ZEBRA line of products. Kudos to them for an excellent marketing approach. Zen explains the company’s ink innovations, quality metal materials, and various pens designed to aid in creative expression – darn it, I want one now!

ZÜCA bags

Calling all bag fanatics!! Have I got an off-the-charts awesome bag company for you today! If you’re looking for cool, novel, unique, and again, AWESOME, I have the bag that will be an stand out gift for your family, friends, girlfriend or boyfriend.

ZÜCA bags offer the usual selection of backpacks and luggage – and the unusual. The ZÜCA sport line is popular for the active lifestyle market: ice skaters, disk golf, cornhole, roller derby, and Irish dancing.

Irish dancing? Roller derby? Cornhole sports? This might be the most out-of-the-ordinary company that you are reading about today. You see, people with custom portable luggage needs approach ZÜCA with a shortfall, ZÜCA takes a look at the problem, and then often moves forward on a design solution.

Wait… there’s more! Create your own ZÜCA bag by choosing the frame color, bag design print/color, and for kid’s school bags, flashing or no flashing wheels! To quote ZÜCA, there are “dozens and dozens of choices” for the bag print – and they’re all cool ones!

Funny and gag gifts

If you’re looking for a gift that will make your recipient laugh, consider a funny or gag gift that starts with the letter Z. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Zany socks

I’m loving this new zany sock craze, especially among men. How can anyone not crack a smile seeing a young professional in a business suit or business casual, with some wild sock peeping out beneath their trouser cuff?

Of course, teens and folks of all ages are having fun with their socks. Fun socks fit into the gift giving budget and it’s easy to find a pair that fit to a friend’s personality.

Socks with bright colors, bold patterns, and fun designs with animals or food are perfect for adding a pop of personality to any outfit. Have fun with it!

Funny zen garden

Zen gardens take a goofy turn. Have a chuckle with the Mini Zen Garden Kitty Cat Litter Box, a spooky coffin zen garden, or a mini beach theme.

Remember, the key to a good funny or gag gift is to keep it lighthearted and not offensive. Keep your recipient’s sense of humor in mind and choose a gift that will make them smile.
