Large wall calendar clocks and oversized clocks may just be the unusual wall clocks you are looking for. A novelty item can also be something to consider for a gift, especially if it is one of the many personalized items now on sale.
A personalized clock can be a favorite character from a storybook and a child's name printed on a dial such as a children's wall clock for their bedroom, or even a unique wall clock that has a photograph of a special moment or fun.
A photo wall clock doesn't have to be tacky like a printed mug or t-shirt. Many photo clocks use beautiful black and white family portraits, they incorporate them into crystal or glass clocks that are sleek and stylish. Children's wall clocks can be made from photographs of the child or groups of friends from the child's school.
Also, photos of your favorite sports teams or heroes, or team logos can be customized on sports watches. There are some sports watches already designed with most famous players and teams, but you could use the same idea and create a watch using the little league logo or a memorable photo from a game and add it to creating a custom watch for the child or as a gift for the coach or as a new watch for the school locker or as a gift for the team members.
