Treasure in the desert! This week’s collection of gift-giving inspiration is for cactus gift ideas. A cactus is a great special occasion or housewarming gift – it’s easy to keep alive, doesn’t really need to be watered, and looks cool just about anywhere. If you’re looking for a cactus, well then just go down to your friendly neighborhood garden center and you’ll find all sorts of neat prickly plants. This list of cactus gift ideas is a bit different – for someone who is really into cacti, or has a southwest-desert home decor theme, here are some unique and original cactus themed gifts:

1. Cactus Soap Set

9. Cactus Toothpick Holder

10. Desert Moon Cactus & Wolf Cremation Urn

Cactus Wood Art

Ok, a cactus cremation urn is pretty weird, but admit it, the rest of these cactus gifts are pretty weird too. Although you definitely wouldn’t want to use this as a gift (“Happy birthday, here’s an urn!”), people who love deserts and wolves and cacti need to plan ahead and make final arrangements same as everybody else. And the woodwork on this is incredible: each piece is made from a different type of wood in its natural color, laser engraved and inlaid together like a 3 dimensional jigsaw puzzle. Check out the rest of these fascinating “Dimensional Art” cremation urns at Urns Northwest.
