All out of Christmas gift ideas? Forget walking around crowded department stores aimlessly – we’ve got suggestions for everyone on your list. With more than 40,000 pressies from small makers and creators, we’re the experts in handmade, artisan and quirky Christmas presents that bring back the magic of surprise (and won’t make Aunty Julie say ‘you shouldn't have’ – and mean it!). In our curated collection, you’ll find thousands of genuinely different Christmas gifts for the whole fam, from Mum and Dad, to your slightly annoying sibling, fussy teenage cousins, and even the cat!
If your mum is anything like ours, she’s a festive season saviour. (Who else could make a turkey, stuffing and family-size pavlova before lunchtime on Chrissy Day?) So, she deserves something special. Our Christmas presents for Mum collection has plenty of unique ideas. Think a gorgeous silk scarf to go with her favourite outfit, a personalised necklace that’s engraved just for her, or a personalised cake tin for Mum’s famous Christmas pud. From the thoughtful and elegant to the fun and festive, we have loads of brilliant Christmas present ideas that’ll make her day – and maybe even score you the last slice of pav!
Once you’ve got Mum sorted, don’t forget about Dad! (We took a peek at his letter to Santa and, no, he doesn’t want another multi-pack of sports socks or boring briefs.) Luckily, we’ve got plenty of cool pressies to stuff his stocking with in our Christmas presents for Dad collection. From a personalised tool kit and a rad dad tee to a festive beer tankard and stylish Christmas gift ideas made from wood or leather – there’s something for every kind of bloke. Got a dad who loves to joke? Go novelty with a cheeky BBQ oven mitt, a shower beer holder or a bike balls bicycle light. (That’s something they don’t make at the North Pole!)
Stocking up for the rest of the family? We’ve got you. Whether you’re shopping for your sister, brother, favourite uncle, boyfriend, girlfriend or significant other, you’ll discover extra special finds that’ll make you more popular than the big man in red. We can also help you ace the office Secret Santa with affordable, totally non-tacky Kris Kringle gifts that come in at under $30. Trust us, you’ll be winning the office gift stakes at this year’s Kris Kringle with our quirky finds. (Dan from Accounts will be so stoked will his giant pencil sharpener-shaped desk tidy you might even get a Christmas bonus!) But we know that not everyone is easy to please on the present front – which is why we've sourced Xmas gift ideas for hard-to-buy-for people, like your fussy BFF, your very practical grandad or your too-cool-for-school neice.
Speaking of school-aged kids... If your ankle biters are finishing up their final term of the school year, you’ll also want to check out our gifts for teachers collection. It’s full thoughtful ways to thank your classroom heroes for all their hard work this year. Looks like someone’s getting an A+ for gifting!
While you’re on the present hunt, check out our handy Gift Finder – it’s guaranteed to make the whole Christmas gift buying gig as easy as Santa sliding down the chimney. You can shop by recipient or by personality, so if there’s a golf pro, keen foodie or wine buff on your list, you’ll find our carefully curated collections a breeze to shop from.
All the tinsel, fairy lights and holiday-season singalongs got you feeling extra festive? We’ve got plenty of Christmas-themed presents to choose from, too. We’d turn up the aircon just so we could wear a classic reindeer jumper. (Hey, if it’s good enough for Colin Firth, it’s good enough for us!) You’ll even find fun reindeer socks and undies – the perfect Christmassy stocking fillers for Dad. If reindeers aren’t your thing, our ‘Fa la la la llama’ and ‘Mince pies before guys’ sweatshirts are putting us in a holly jolly mood.
If you’re in need of some fun stocking filler ideas for kids, our collection has plenty of things they’ll love – from classic toys like personalised wooden yo yos, to custom engraved trinket boxes (great for teen girls!) and fun educational activities, like mini science kits and DIY craft kits. They should keep the kiddos occupied while you sneak off for a cheeky brandy!
But why wait until Christmas day to enjoy the present opening? Start the fun on December 24 with your own Christmas Eve box tradition – fill your custom engraved box with holiday treats that will build your little one’s excitement. And don’t forget the all-important countdown! Our Christmas advent calendars are worth jumping out of bed for. Kids will love personalised pop-up Santa calendars or ones that you can hide your own treat in, while for adults, we’ve got non-chocolate treats like whisky or gin behind every door. There are even advent calendars for your pets, so everyone can get into the spirit.
Ah, Christmas! It truly is the most magical time of the year in the southern hemisphere. We love our Aussie Christmas traditions, especially the obligatory backyard cricket match, the traditional Christmas ham (with Mum’s secret glaze recipe), prawns on the barbie, bare feet, mozzies (well, okay, we don’t love themozzies), Aunty Jan’s mango pavlova, Dad popping the cork on a great bottle of red he’s kept cellared for years, and a stinking hot day with decorative fake snow on the windows!
However you choose to celebrate, Hardtofind has your Christmas covered, with genuinely different Christmas present ideas that come as a welcome relief from vouchers, scented misfires or the good ol' card-with-a-scratchie inside… We make choosing a thoughtful gift so easy, you can choose it with one hand holding the mistletoe.
