With less than 3 weeks left until Christmas you’ve probably started to think of gift ideas for loved ones, or if you're like me you'll say you’re going to go gift shopping for the next two weeks and then leave it to the last minute!
It feels as if every year, it gets harder and harder to come up with creative gift ideas for friends and family. There are always certain people on my present list who I find difficult to buy for; and every year that list gets a little bit longer. And after talking to numerous customers; it seems this is a fairly common dilemma.
So, I've racked my brains to think of some super solutions for these tricky friends and family. Below are some of my tops picks for gifts to buy when the person you're buying for has everything.
Couples are especially hard to buy for. Buying two presents can seem excessive and buying the one joint gift often leads to you purchasing the present with one person more in mind than the other. However, a great idea I've used a few times is to buy matching fragrances for the couple so that they have a set.
Calvin Klein Eternity is a great option as they have matching men’s and women’s fragrances not only in the original, but also in their variations such as Flame, Summer, Air and Aqua. However, my personal favourite is Calvin Klein Eternity Fresh. With a light, romantic and playful scent expressed in different ways for the men’s cologne and women’s perfume it’s a great gift idea for the couple who are deeply in love.
The men's and women’s Dolce and Gabbana The One makes a cute present for any couple. With the beautiful shape and design of the bottles, a matching set of The One looks nice on any dressing table or bathroom vanity. With both fragrances having a sophisticated, oriental scent, it's a great way to knock out two presents in one go and would be a lovely idea to spoil your parents with.
Why not give your time-poor friend or family member an indulgent present that allows them to enjoy a bit of pampering from their busy schedule. Bath & Body presents are the perfect gift idea because they smell amazing and allow the recipient to pamper themselves.
MOR bath and body products make fabulous gifts. My picks are the bath foams or candles. Perfect for setting a relaxed atmosphere, MOR candles (I love the Wild Sage) are a treat to come home to after a busy day.
MOR products smell great, are Australian made and are packaged beautifully – what's not to love!
The Aromatherapy Company makes natural, socially conscious bath & body products that are the perfect gift. Their emphasis on natural products mean that options such as the Therapy Range Hand & Body Lotion are a great choice for someone with sensitive skin (the Cocoa, Vanilla & Cassia smells divine). Alternatively their diffusers will make any home smell amazing and are perfect as a stocking stuffer or a small gift.
Gifts sets are always a welcome present because they’re both practical and more experiential than a single bottle of a fragrance or bath & body product.
Whether you want to help someone explore new style through buying them a gift set containing a fragrance they usually wouldn’t wear, or buy someone their favourite fragrance; but in a different way, gift sets are the perfect gift idea.
When in doubt, let them do the hard work and choose a present they'll love for themselves. A gift card for Cosmetic Fragrances Direct lets them choose their favourite perfumes, colognes, makeup or bath & body products. We guarantee that with over 6,000 products we have something for even the fussiest gift recipient.
