Christmas is looming large and with less than five weeks until the sacks have to be filled with presents aplenty and the stockings stuffed with gifts galore, we decided to give you a helping hand to make sure you cross off everyone on your Christmas list - even those who are notoriously hard-to-buy-for. Whether it's Brother-in-Law Barry who always has the latest and greatest of everything on the market, or Cousin Carmel who is known for complaining about any gifts she - we share with you how to find customised Christmas gifts that will please even the most difficult of recipients.
For the hard-to-buy-for brother, uncle, husband or grandad in your life who seems to have everything (here's looking at you, Barry!) you might need to get a little personal with a customised Christmas gift. Engrave names, initials or a personal message on a Premium Whiskey Decanter to give a gift of quality and sentiment they will undoubtedly appreciate. Or if you really want to go all- out this festive season, opt for the Christmas Decanter Gift Set - featuring an Engraved Premium Whiskey Decanter plus two Engraved Scotch Glasses. Or encourage hubby's 'Handyman Streak' with an Engraved Wooden Christmas Hammer. Personalise this practical gift with his name or a special message and you've really nailed it. And if Uncle Ernie has been known to get stuck into the eggnog a little too much during the Christmas celebrations, why not gift him a Printed Christmas Hangover Kit to help him out come Boxing Day?
Christmas Gifts for Her
Girlfriends, neighbours, hairdressers, aunties, nieces or grandmothers can sometimes prove the hardest-to-buy-for due to their high standards of gift-giving expectation or particular personal tastes. This Christmas, wow them with a gift that is both special and spectacular, and well-suited to their individual preferences. Busy women on-the-go will very much appreciate a quality Engraved Thermo Travel Mug or an Engraved Bamboo Travel Mug - personally inscribed with their names, artwork and special messages to suit. And what do the majority of our female friends enjoy during the festive season? A tipple, of course. But don't just grab them any old beverage - really raise the bar with personalised accessories including a Raw Printed Christmas Wine Box, an Engraved Birchwood Wine Bottle Holder or any number of personalised glasses including stemless, champagne or wine. And for Cousin Carmel? There's always the novelty Engraved Jar of Nothing, so she really has something to whinge about this year?
Sometimes it's your kids who can cause you the most heartache on the Christmas list. If you're sick of buying the latest gadgets and heavily-marketed toys that they lose interest in by the time Boxing Day rolls around, consider some more personal gift options, designed to be cherished as long-lasting Christmas keepsakes. An Engraved Wooden Animal Memory Game makes a perfect present to be passed down through the generations. If your children are the sporty type, an Engraved Metal Water Bottle featuring their name or a customised design offers an ideal gift that is especially theirs. Or spoil them with a Personalised Santa Sack or their very own Bamboo Angel Tree Decoration. You can also help them prepare for Santa's arrival with a Personalised Santa Hamper and a Personalised First Christmas Hamper offers the ideal keepsake to commemorate your first baby's first festive season.
Gifts for Pets
And don't think we forgot about Fido on the hard-to-buy-for Christmas list! A Personalised Wooden Pet Decoration is the perfect addition to any tree, and the ideal way to recognise the furry members of the family or honour the memory of those four-legged friends who are no longer with us.
If you're stuck on what to buy your nearest and dearest this Christmas, you can't go wrong with a customised Christmas gift that is both personal and practical.
