Hardtofind is the home of personalised gifts, whether you’re buying for friends or family or treating yourself to something special. From homewares and jewellery to fashion and prints, there are unique gifts for every person and every age – even those notoriously hard-to-buy-for peeps.
We get it, gifting can be a tricky game – you want something meaningful, personal and totally out of the box (read: no boring multi-pack undies or servo carnations!). But where to start? Easy! We’ve put together a bunch of tried-and-tested tips that’ll guarantee you a rep as the number-one gift-giver in town. And with thousands of carefully curated online gifts at your disposal, you’ll have this gift-giving gig in the bag.
Tip #1: Think about all the things your giftee likes to do. Maybe your dad is all about golfing or your bestie thinks cheese is life – whatever their passion, let it guide you to a winning gift. Don’t know the person really well? That’s what social media is for! Embrace your inner detective and go on a little (totally non-creepy) stalk sesh. You’ll work out pretty quickly if they’re into things like bike riding, coffee drinking, food, wine, travel – and bonza, you’re in! Take that newfound intel over to our awesome Gift Finder – a nifty tool that lets you shop by personality (among other things) – and whether your gift recipient is into music, or they love dogs or hanging out at the beach, we’ve got the best gifts to choose from.
Tip #2: Make them laugh. Fact: 99.8% of people prefer gifts with fun slogans on them. So instead of getting your little bro a boring plain mug, give him a flippin’ brilliant mug that will warn all his co-workers that ‘Simon is allergic to mornings’. (Hey, if the mug fits…) And if you’re going to gift a cheeseboard to your loved-up newlyweds, why not make it a one with a cheesy gag, like ‘Harry & Meghan, together for cheddar and ever’? Funny gifts that make people smile = you nailed it.
Tip #3: Add a personal touch. At hardtofind, Personalised gifts are our speciality – customising a gift with someone’s name, initials, birth date or a heartfelt message is the perfect way to ensure your gift goes straight to the poolroom. There are plenty of ways to create a unique present for someone special – from engraved gifts and hand-stamped jewellery to bespoke wall art and printed homewares, you’ll be spoilt for choice with our collection of customized gifts.
Tip #4: Turn the gifting experience into an event. Here’s where you can get really creative… You’ve come to hardtofind, you’ve searched through thousands of cool gifts, you’ve purchased the perfect present (it’s personalised, it’s funny, it’s a winner!), and to really top the whole thing off… why not hide the gift and send your eager little gift-receiver on a treasure hunt? Or wrap the present like a pass-the-parcel and make the recipient discard another layer when the music stops! You’re only limited by your imagination.
Tip #5: Shop in the right place! At hardtofind, we’ve taken all the hard work out of choosing special gifts for the people that matter most – gifts that you won’t find anywhere else, including more than 10,000 personalized gift ideas.
