Xmas gift guide for the hard to buy for

Kids are always the easiest to buy for, it's the adults in your life that can make Christmas shopping tricky, so here's a few ideas for those hard to please giftwise.
 
 


Not sponsored, but awhile ago I won a Bockers & Pony hamper, and it was one of the only hampers I've received where I liked everything in it - not any 'filler'. This was the Cheers hamper, but there are Christmas offerings, and many other great gift ideas. With the red & white ribbon, it would make the perfect festive surprise. So if you're really stuck, or looking for a hamper to send, I'd look at Bockers & Pony.


If money's no object, I'd consider the Fly'n'Dine with Sydney Seaplanes. A luxury gift that makes you feel like you've stepped into another life for a few hours.

Or for a gift that gives twice - head to the Little Shop for handmade gifts where the proceeds go to hospitals.

These little pendants make lovely gifts from Udderly Mine.

Look for the local gift markets in your area. There are a lot popping up in December - and when you buy local, your hard earned cash is going into the community. The Artisan Markets are popping up in Annandale on the 5th December, if you're after funky handmade gift ideas.

If you are really stumped, why not head to Daddy, I want a pony! and potter around the sensational gift shop in Leichhardt. There's bound to be something there to solve your dilemma.

  4. I love a good hamper. Thanks for sharing that one Lydia. I'm always afraid of buying a hamper and finding half the contents is filled with filler or basic food items. x

  5. Hmmm... I wrote a post over at Styling You today re Christmas gifts, wonder if I can add that given it's not actually on my blog.

    I'm also a fan of the hamper, though probably appreciate them more if the person puts it together themselves and tailor it especially to the recipient!

  6. That does look a good hamper, I'd pretty much given up on them as they often seem to have a couple of good things then whatever else they could find to fill the gaps.

  14. I find the distance from family makes them even harder to buy for but the want for gift cards seems to becoming more and more common. Great ideas there.

  15. All fabulous ideas! Love the name of that shop, we have one similar in town. I don't go in there often, but love it and love that they have something for any budget.
