Here at hardtofind, we consider ourselves total gift-giving champions (what we possess in present ideas, we lack in modesty!) – which is why we decided to put together a collection of our go-to gifts for some our favourite people. From dads to platonic girlfriends and hard-to-please teens, this post is packed with all the pressie inspo your browser can handle. Read it, bookmark it, then next time you’re in a gift-giving jam, you can thank us for getting you out of it. We won’t even try to take the credit… much.


For mum

Eri, head of everything: S’well Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle – My mum walks at least 10,000 steps every day. She’d love this S’well animal-print water bottle.

Sarah, seller production manager: Personalised Mum Botanical Bottle Bud Vases – Now mum can have a beautiful keepsake to put her fresh flowers in, that reminds her we love her!

Alice, head of copy: Cotton Broderie Cami and Sleep Shorts – These PJs are super comfy and won’t embarrass me when she goes outside in the morning to pick up the paper.

Erin, marketing manager: Personalised ‘Is It Tea You’re Looking For’ Mug – Mum loves tea. I think this would make her giggle every time she had a cuppa.


For dad

Eri: Giant Dutch Chocolate Letter – Chocolate is the way to Dad’s heart.

Sarah: Melbourne Urban Beer Odyssey Gift Card – My dad is partial to a pint of beer or two. He’s coming over from the UK to visit in March, so this brewery tour would be the perfect activity for us to do together.

Alice: Facial Moisturiser And Wash Gift Set – He’ll openly love that it helps him look schmick. He’ll secretly love that it says ‘Handsome’ on the packaging.

Erin: Crosley Coupe Turntable – Dad grew up in the ’70s, he loves records!


For your SO

Eri: The Ilario Personalised Italian Leather Desk Tidy/Coin Tray – This personalised leather desk tidy is perfect for my OCD husband!

Sarah: Ridiculously Good Looking Wash Bag – Just to feed his ego a bit more…

Alice: Code Manly Bacon Candle – Because I’m currently in a pretty serious relationship with breakfast.

Erin: Darth Vader Limited Edition Fine Art Print – James loves Star Wars (typical nerd).


For the kids

Eri: Crosley Nomad Turntable – Old-school tunes for their ‘hangout sessions’ (no mums allowed, apparently!).

Sarah: Lil’ Fox Baby & Toddler Costume With Hat – This fox dress-up is just too cute! It’ll look adorable on my cousin’s new bub.

Alice: ‘Hello! I’m New Here’ Baby Bodysuit – For my friend’s newest addition… coming soon!

Erin: Personalised Wooden Egg Cup – Love these little egg cups, and the fact that they’re unbreakable helps with little ones.


For grandma

Eri: Grandma’s Perfect Coffee/Tea Mug – For afternoon tea with the obligatory slice of cake.

Sarah: Personalised Acacia Wood Cookbook and Tablet Stand – My Grandma likes to keep up with her grandkids by using her iPad (very high-tech!) to email us and look at our photos on Instagram. Now she can have somewhere to rest it when she’s not busy tapping away!

Alice: Thoughtful Gardener Hand Trowel And Fork Set – If you’re looking for my nan, she’s probably out in the garden. I wish I inherited her green thumb! Maybe she can teach me a thing or two with these tools… like, what is a trowel used for exactly?

Erin: The Duchess Necklace – Nan loves a nice piece of jewellery and the fact that it’s personalised adds that little extra something.


For grandpa

Eri: Dad to Grandpa Cufflinks – Two gifts with one stone with these babies!

Sarah: Personalised Golf Socks – My grandad is still a keen golfer, at 80 years old! He can wear these for good luck when he’s teeing off.

Alice: Engraved Giant Beer Glass – An evening coldie should always be served in a glass, according to my pop.

Erin: Charcoal Cotton Slippers – My pop would love these super-comfy slippers.


For your BFFs

Eri: Tonight’s Forecast 99% Chance of Wine Nail Polish – This tells you a little something about the company I keep.

Sarah: Sister Bracelet – For my sister from another mister!

Alice: Squad Goals Women’s Scoop Neck Sweater – T-Swift and co. ain’t got nothing on my girl squad.

Erin: Silk Eye Mask – What more could you ask for? (Except maybe a glass of rosé!)
