Trendy gifts for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list

Every year, the Christmas season brings a rush of new and exciting gift ideas to the marketplace, but there is always at least one person on your shopping list that seems impossible to buy for. Firstly, when in doubt, scour the internet for gift ideas. Websites and apps like Pinterest, Instagram and TikTok all have amazing ideas for gifts, and with the rise of ecommerce across the globe it’s just the click of a button, and the customer has a gift. The best part about these sites? The options are always changing and evolving!

However, this year we're taking a look at some gift ideas for those hard-to-shop-for people on your Christmas list.


The women in our lives can be notoriously hard to shop for, so we got in touch with the online brand directory, Epiphany, to get their take on trendy gifts. Epiphany is a brand directory with an exclusive selection of amazing local brands, and they shared their favourite ideas with us:


Almost Forgotten, Never Told

A wish for a someone you love. No gift more special in our opinion. 

My Smooth Skin

Hair free and happy! The gift that keeps on giving. 

Derryn Schmidt Photography

Memories are priceless. Derryn Schmidt is the ultimate choice when it comes to capturing beautiful family moments. A voucher for a family shoot is such a beautiful memory to give someone special. 

Sweetpeas Handmade

Linen and leather are fashion essentials every woman needs in her wardrobe. A Sweetpeas voucher is the ultimate spoil for any woman in your life. 


A dress is a summer staple and one your best babe will wear again and again. Ammara does classic cuts in gorgeous fabrics. Styles every lady would adore. 

Cosy Chic

Protecting your skin is always in. These cute Freya bucket hats are a summer essential. 

Sneha Apothecary

Promote self care with the most magical body oil. We love this Sneha Apothecary, non-greasy emulsion of goodness. 


A Turkish towel is a woman’s best friend. For any woman, the Summah towels are the perfect vacation sidekick. We have no doubt this gift will be adored. 

Adele Catherine

Whether this beautiful Acacia Bowl is used for salads, fruit, snacks or on a server holding front door essentials, it is a decor lovers dream in its pure white glory. 

Vita Girl SA

This Good Leaf After Sun should be in every Christmas stocking this year. Sun, sea and swimming pools are not ideal for beautiful skin. With Witch Hazel, Aloe Vera and Cucumber, Summer skin is rehydrated and cared for all season long. 

Finally, there is no greater gift than a helping hand - simply volunteer. Whether you're doing a class project at school, or taking on a cause of your choice, the act of giving to the world and helping others in need is an amazing way to give this Christmas season. Good luck and a very merry Christmas!
