Epic gifts for those hard to buy for friends
Trying to come up with good ideas for something original to buy as a present for someone is exhausting.

But somewhere out there exists the perfect gift for everyone. Even that fussy friend who has everything.

Original sentimental gifts for best friends
Sometimes it can be easy to shop for a present for your best friend. There’s no one in the world who knows your best friend as well as you do. You’ve shared all your inner secrets, you know everything her heart desires, and you can look at a gift and know instantly whether or not it’s something she’d love… But what to buy for the best friend who already has everything she needs?
Jewellery is always a lovely, sentimental gift for friends who are impossible to shop for. If you love your best friend to infinity (and beyond), give her the stunning Infinity Jewellery Set With Crystals From Swarovski®. These unique jewellery pieces will soon become her favourite necklace and earring set.
If you had plans to travel the world together, and then Covid happened, the Australia Scratch Map is a great gift to keep the dream alive. You can plot and plan all your future adventures and slowly scratch off all the places you visit together.
Books make great gifts for the woman who has everything. Photographer Brandon Stanton's Humans Of New York: Stories is a fabulous coffee table book with a difference. She’ll love this collection of extremely personal, authentic, and intriguing conversations each paired with one of Brandon's unique photos that bare the soul. The stories are a mix of laugh out loud, insightful, intimate and heart-warming peeks inside the lives of everyday people on the streets of New York. You can even read it once your friend has finished.
Forget the practical and boring plastic kitchen chopping board she bought on sale at the dollar store. Give her a gorgeous solid timber chef’s chopping and cheese serving board with the DOIY Cheeseporn Cheese Board Set. This would make an especially great gift for someone who loves to cook or entertain, but it’s also a stunning and practical addition to the kitchen for someone who likes the finer things in life.
Unique gift ideas for a sporty guy
So you have a friend who loves sports of all kinds, he lives and dies for his team, but he already owns every piece of sporting paraphernalia and merchandise known to man. What’s a great gift for a sports lover who is hard to buy for?
Rather than give him a physical gift, you could surprise him with an experience gift. If he’s into fast cars, speed boats, or adrenaline sports, how about you buy him a gift that puts him in the hot seat. From quad bike tours to epic jet-ski adventures there's a gift to get his heart-racing. The U-Fly Aerobatics Flight Experience would make an incredible gift for the man who has everything.
There’s a range of great experience gifts in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, but for someone in Tasmania you could treat them to a twilight kayak adventure in the Derwent Valley’s idyllic countryside with a Paddle With The Platypus Twilight Kayak Adventure gift experience. An epic gift for the person who has everything and someone who loves adventure.
If you want a unique gift for a sporty friend that’s a little more budget friendly, a Funny Socks double as a fun, light-hearted novelty idea and a practical gift he’ll use. Choose different themes to suit his sporting interests or just go for classic joke socks about how work sucks and he'd rather he BBQing.
For someone who loves golf, a Golf Gift Mug would make a fun novelty gift for the office. Or if your hard-to-buy-for sporty friend has trouble sitting still at work and would enjoy a little lunchtime sports break, the Retro Punch Machine Game is a great sports-themed novelty gift for the person who has everything.
