Christmas Gift Ideas for Even the Most Difficult Recipients

Christmas has rolled around again.  The eternal Christmas shopping problem is what to do about those difficult people on your list without wasting hours at the Mall, battling the crowds, or mindlessly scrolling hoping something you haven’t even thought of will flash across the screen.

Well, you can stop scrolling now, because Sarah, Rachel and Learne at Everything But Flowers have put together an unbelievable range of Christmas gift ideas just for you. As you’ll see, we think the biggest-selling items this year will be as always around the outdoors. Of course, no list would be complete without the timeless offerings of alcohol and chocolate, so those classics make an appearance too.

Let’s dive in!


Take the Gift outside!

After much of the nation has endured a year like no other, many people are looking to get back in touch with the outdoors. At Everything But Flowers, we have an extensive range of awesome gifts to help them do just that.  This years must have picnic accessory is  our Wicker Insulated Picnic Basket, perfect for those lazy Sunday afternoons at the beach or the park. It looks cool but is also practical as well. Result!

For those with a bit of a green thumb, our Waratah Garden Tool Set will make sure they look stylish in the garden as well.  Containing all the gardening essentials to get a backyard blooming, such as secateurs, a fork and a trowel but also a very fashionable set as well. Trendsetting in the garden…who’d have thought?!

If you think they may find gardening a little bit like hard work, give them something that will help them lie back and take it easy: the Annabel Trends Ocelot Beach Pillow is the perfect accessory for beachgoers this summer. They may not even make it to the water!

For the person who really wants to get back into nature, we’ve got two great guidebooks that will help them do just that: Ultimate Campsites Australia and Ultimate Road Trips Australia. Covering 40 of the best driving holidays and 75 amazing campsites around our country, the lucky recipient will be checking their tyres and packing the snatch strap before Christmas lunch has even been served. 

Something to give the kids

Today it’s Iron Man, tomorrow it’s football. Who can keep up with kids’ obsessions? One things for sure fun and games and sport are timeless! Get them outdoors this summer with the amazing Sunnylife Inflatable Mega Basketball Set, as convenient as it is fun. It’s a slam dunk!

Alternatively, add a new dimension and keep them entertained at the beach out of the sun with the Sunnylife Summer Games Towel

To brighten up their nights and their imagination, check out this amazing Astronaut Table Light. It uses a low voltage LED to softly diffuse light throughout the bedroom. Their dreams will be full of uncharted planets and amazing space odysseys!

While we’ve slotted this gift in the kids’ section, it’s equally suitable for adults wanting to relive the seventies. Our Disco Ball Speaker will bring the groove to any party, providing the tunes and the lighting to create that discotheque feel. Cue the flared white suit.

How about a tipple for the tricky?

No matter how difficult they may be to buy for, booze is sure to be a winner. At Everything But Flowers, we have the range to suit all tastes. For the beer lovers, you can’t go past our Corona Beer Hamper, complete with some delicious snacks to go with their brew. We also have other beer hamper varieties from United nations to Microbreweries.

If they’re more of a grape lover, have a look at our After Work Drinks, a perfect pairing of South Australian Shiraz and assorted moreish snacks. 

For something both bubbly and pampering, our L'Occitane & Moet Hamper might well be the perfect Christmas gift hamper imaginable. A delicious bottle of Moet & Chandon Brut coupled with L’Occitane skincare products and chockies? Perhaps we should have put this gift basket at the top of the list.

They’ll also need something to drink it out of especially when they are outside at picnics or poolside BBQs, so check out our Sunny Life Stemless Champagne Flutes – sophisticated, fun and elegant.
