Gift giving is great when you know exactly what to get someone and how they’re going to react. It’s not so great when you have to buy for the person who has everything or the person you just can’t get a read on. Secret Santa can be tricky too. So what is a gift-giver to do?

Give that difficult person (sorry, “person who knows what they want”) in your life something totally unique that they definitely don’t have already but will totally love. If you’re not sure what that is, let us give you a hand.

Twinkle lights with bluetooth speakers

Perfect for university students or just people who want their entire houses to be twinkling and blaring “All I Want for Christmas is You.”

Flowers that never die … well, sort of

These adorable roses in a box from Canadian company Euphorie des Fleurs swap water for glycerin so they can last for up to a year. That means you can give someone the gift of flowers for a year without having to take care of them or keep buying new cut ones. What more could someone who likes colour in their home ask for?

A bracelet flask

Yes. A flask. That you wear on your wrist. Buy them for all your friends and then two for yourself (you know, one for each arm).

A customizable scent

Everything is made to order with labels printed right there. Create custom scents for your loved ones in lotions, perfumes, candles, soaps and more. Adorable and super personal.

Shoe accessories

Do you have a fashionista friend whose style you just can’t keep up with? Get her some shoe accessories so one pair of shoes can function as many. Plus, how adorable would some festive jinglies on your toes be at the work Christmas party?

A selftrait ornament

Once you get past how this can be creepy, these are actually pretty cute and unique. Get your most self-absorbed friends their very own little versions of themselves to hang on the tree. Get the whole family. It’s not weird, it’s eccentric.

An HP Sproket

If you’ve decided that 3D portraits are too weird, another photo option is the HP Sproket that lets you print photos straight from your phone. Creating a photo-wall has never been so easy.

A floating gift card

Okay, you’ve looked at everything and you still can’t find the perfect gift. Time to resort to a Vanilla Mastercard, we guess. But don’t just throw it into a holiday card and call it a day. Give your gift card a unique mode of delivery and attach it to a helium balloon in a box. It’s offered at Winners, Home Sense and Marshalls.
