Unique Gifts For The Hard To Please Recipient

How To Choose A Gift To Ignite Their Christmas Spirit


With the festive season almost upon us, we're running out of time to decide what we are going to gift our loved ones this year. Thinking of the right gift for people who love being surprised is easy. Others say in advance what they'd like to receive. However, what do you do about those nearest and dearest who don't quite see the need for gifting? Or what to buy those tricky people who say they don't need anything?


Don't worry - we've got a few tips from Gifts Australia to help you with your search. We’ve also got some fabulous Christmas gift ideas that even the hardest to please will adore. If you're struggling for gift inspiration, then creating a unique gift basket full of smaller gifts is a great way to surprise your friend at Christmas.


The restrictions this year on our daily activities meant looking at life in a whole new light. Many people are becoming more appreciative of things they took for granted in the past. This year might be the year they are more willing to accept gifting as a way of showing appreciation to those they hold near and dear. So, take the opportunity to surprise them with unique gift ideas and send some Christmas cheer their way. 


Finding A Unique Gift Which Will Warm Their Heart

Before you consider what to get for your hard to please loved one, you might need to do a little research. It’s well worth the time and effort to change their opinions on gift-giving and spread the joy of Christmas!


1. Find out what they like

One of the fastest ways to choose something for someone who doesn't request specific gifts is to look at their likes and dislikes. For work colleagues or someone you're not too familiar with, spend some time asking important questions! If it's someone you know, start to think about the unique homeware items they cherish or the pastimes and hobbies they spend their time on.

2. Help them find new passions

Sometimes, it's hard to tell what someone likes as they've grown accustomed to agreeing with every suggestion that comes their way. Help them find new things to inspire them. Tag them along when you indulge in different activities or invite them to share something new. Plan fun city tours or activities together. You’ll soon see which one they start showing an interest in and thrilling life experiences might just be the perfect gift!

3. Think about their lifestyle

If they’re ‘high maintenance’ and have great taste, then lifestyle gifts are a superb choice. Find out about their home style, favourite colours, and whether they’re picky or practical. These hard to buy for friends and family are likely to hate clutter. Choose something trendy or useful. Our chic decor gifts for men will inspire you to find a present to add something special to their space.
