We all have friends in our lives who are notoriously difficult to buy for. They might be picky about what they like, or they might not give you any ideas of what you could buy them. This can make Christmas shopping particularly difficult, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to shop around. As Christmas is only a matter of weeks away, it’s likely that you’re already panicking about what you can buy them. But there really is no need to start stressing. Here are some fabulous fail-safe Christmas gifts that even your fussiest friend will adore.
A gift card can give your fussy friend the freedom to choose what they want to buy and receive from you. But many people consider them to be impersonal. While this can be true, you can make this gift more personal if you want to. You can choose a gift card that your friend can use in their favourite clothing or music store. If they adore drinking coffee, a Starbucks gift card could be something they enjoy using. You could also consider buying them movie or restaurant gift cards which they can use to unwind after work. Start researching gift cards that relate to your friend’s hobbies or interests to make the best decision possible.
Subscription boxes continue to rise in popularity and now come in more varieties than ever before. From makeup to books, no matter what interests your friend has there’s bound to be a subscription box that will excite them. Think carefully about what your friend enjoys doing in their spare time and use this to influence your search. You will also need to consider the type of subscription you want to sign up for. You can choose to buy a one-time subscription box or pay for your friend to receive them throughout the year. The great thing about these boxes is that your friend will never know what they are going to get. This can add to their excitement while also introducing them to new brands and products.
Christmas hampers are another excellent gift option for the fussy friend in your life. You have the option to buy them pre-made or make them yourself. This will obviously be influenced by how much available time you have. Like the two previous gift ideas, you will need to carefully consider their tastes and interests. If they love food, a hamper filled with their favourite festive snacks in could be a possible option. For movie lovers, you can create or buy hampers with Popcorn, DVD’s and sweets in. Music fans will appreciate a hamper filled with wireless speakers, CD’s and vinyls. There is guaranteed to be a hamper out there that your friend will love to receive and use. You just need to pick the right one.
These gift ideas can help take all the stress out of your Christmas shopping, particularly when buying for fussy friends. They can be useful and enjoyable as well as being gender neutral. So whether you’re buying for your best girl or guy friend, these gifts are bound to do down a treat.
