We all have those people in our lives that seem to have everything and who hardly fall into the stereotypical gift ideas every season. While jewelry is an obvious choice for stylish types, think outside the box and surprise them with something they didn’t know they needed but will reach for at just the right time. Furry slippers or a robe, first aid kids for that post-holiday hangover or a set of fun face masks to pamper themselves with on a night in; – all fall within a reasonable budget and make thoughtful yet fun additions to their lifestyle. Give the ultimate gift of ‘me time’ to the busy mums you know or the girlfriends who crave glowing complexions, lustrous hair and rested eyes by scheduling a spa day for them or curating a hamper of all the beauty products that match their needs. Double win!

Beauty Heroes…

With so many beauty brands coming up with new gift boxes and Christmas exclusives each year, the ways to surprise even the most avid beauty gurus around you are aplenty! Whether you’re on the hunt for your stylish BFF who seems to always be in the know when it comes to beauty buys, your best dressed co-worker who would rejoice at a bold lipstick in a luxe packaging, or the jet-setter in your life who could use some (travel-sized) pampering miniatures in a curated set, be the one to surprise with an addition they don’t already have in their vanity. Always a win!

For the Wanderers…

You know the wanderer, they are your cousin on gap year or best friend from college who went on an explorer’s trip around the world. They aren’t necessarily into ‘things’ so you will win extra points for inspiring them in other ways, think a luxurious travel planner or city guide, a versatile travel pack that will make their life easier or an aesthetically pleasing coffee table book that will inspire their next trip!

Pretty Tech Accessories…

It is inevitable that technology is now a big part of our everyday and every fashion connoisseur or amateur knows that your phone or headphones are just one more chance to accessorize and add spice to your look. Bluetooth headphones or novelty earbuds will complete the everyday of the woman who’s always on the run while a phone case with a witty slogan sure will make her smile on the daily.

Make it Personal..

This year, don’t overlook novelty ways to personalize the gifts you wrap for a novelty novelty way to impress the recipient and show them you made it that much more special for them. Choose initials, memorable dates or personalized messages on everything from candles to jewelry boxes. For the men in your life, cuff-links, collar stays or even colognes will be elevated by the personal touch you bring to your discerning gifts.
