Santa’s not the only one who has to work hard getting gifts together before December 25 – chances are you’ve got a list of your own to check twice! But, unlike Santa, you’ve got a secret weapon under your belt that’s gonna help you nail the festive season: Us.
We’ve compiled a list of the best Christmas gift ideas for 2017 and it’s got everyone covered, from your impossible-to-buy-for brother to your wine-loving bestie and old Grandma Shirley. Load up the
sleigh Toyota Corolla with pressies, you’re gonna be everyone’s favourite Christmas gift-giver (sorry not sorry, Mr. Kringle!)…
Mum might give you the old ‘don’t get me anything’ speech, but you know better than to fall for that trick… Surprise her with a personalised keepsake (it really is the thought that counts!) or treat her a pair of lush new PJs and a scented candle for bath time. You’ll know you found the perfect Christmas gift for mum when she dishes you up a second serve of pudding!
Fact: Dads are notoriously hard to buy for. But if you’ve decided that 2017 will be the year Dad gets something other than a multi-pack of sports socks, we can help with that. You already know dads love practical stuff (it’s why you’ve always got him socks!), so a winning Christmas gift idea for Dad is something he can he can use – whether it’s a leather wash bag, engraved cufflinks, aftershave or a whisky tasting set.
Sure, you’d like to get him a vacuum (and remind him how to use it!) but what’s really going to get your other half excited this Chrissy is a thoughtful pressie that shows you know him better than anyone. Maybe it’s a beard grooming kit to keep his facial hair in fine form, a cocktail set to up the ante of his home bar or a leather wallet that fits perfectly in his back pocket… You’ll know it when you see it.
Don’t mess this one up (happy wife, happy life, remember!) – a spa set, monogrammed heart key ring or pair of silk knickers should put you in the good books. Really take it to the next level with a luxury leather travel case, super-soft Japanese-style kimono or personalised stacking rings and you’ll accrue enough brownie points to see you through until next year.
Something you can steal should totally be the aim of the game here – you guys have a healthy sibling rivalry, too, right?!

She’s there for you through thick and thin (and always with a bottle of vino at the ready), so you want to get this gift right. A piece of jewellery that (literally) spells out her soul sister status, a personalised wine glass for your next ‘therapy’ session, or a luxe silk shirt or suede clutch that you know she’d never buy herself is the perfect way to make her Christmas Day!
