Resene Post Page Top

Let's be friends!

The books we're reading, the vibrators we're using, the rants we're having and more in our weekly EDM.

Welcome to our 2022 Holiday Gift Guide Collection and here’s the ultimate guide for gifts for the hard-to-buy-for person.

In this edition, we’re looking at gifts for the person who is so savvy with their shopping, they’ve already gone out and bought themselves everything they would ever need. So what do you get the person who has everything? One of these beautiful and thoughtful gifts that every person or home might need! So here are our top picks for gifts for the hard-to-buy-for person!

Personalised Face (Or Pet) Socks

Remind your gift intended just how great you are, or else dedicate them to their favourite pet, celebrity or anyone, really – you’ll be guaranteed to get a good laugh. Plus, everyone always needs socks.

Face socks, $28

Music Lyric Art

If you’ve got a friend who loves nothing better than a good song lyric or thoughtful quote, why not turn that quote into art??

This Etsy shop has an extremely large selection of Taylor lyrics turned into cross stitch art to pick from (obviously the Autumn leaves ones are an absolute favourite) but if your friend is less of a Swiftie and more of a, say, Fleetwood Mac person, then this shop has a stunning range of lyrics from acts like David Bowie, The National and Florence and The Machine. Prices start from $20

Swysh Experience

Have a sports-mad fan in your life and they’ve already got all the merch they could possibly own? Swysh is the answer to your prayers – an exciting, personalised experience from their favourite sporting superstar in the form of a video, sent straight to your mobile. Whether it’s advice, well-wishes or just saying hi, it’s the chance to enjoy a special moment with a Kiwi idol.

From All Blacks and Warriors to Silver Ferns and Olympians, there’s someone for every sport nut, with pricing ranging from $20 to $300 depending on the athlete.

Win win. If only all sport was the same.

Swysh Experience, from $20

Mecca Divine Duo

You get to a certain stage in your life where you really appreciate a gorgeous hand soap and cream, and this duo is just the perfect thing for just about anyone.

Mecca Cosmetica’s nourishing hand duo was created to add a little luxury to everyday routines. Delicately scented with sensuous notes of juniper berries, oud, citrus and cedar, your hands will be left feeling smoother, cleansed and perfectly perfumed. Position this hand duo pride of place on your kitchen counter or the guest bathroom vanity for all to enjoy.

Mecca Divine Duo, $77

Kathmandu Roamer Sand Proof Beach Towel

The WORST thing about the beach is that the sand gets bloody everywhere, so this Kathmandu sand proof beach towel is a gift from the outdoor gods. The sand simply falls of this bad boy, meaning your phone, your car and your sanity will remain intact.

Kathmandu Roamer Sand Proof Beach Towel, $79.98

Sophie Single Letter Necklace

It doesn’t get much more classic than a stunning, simple initial necklace that one can truly wear with everything. It’s perfect on its own, or layered with other pieces for an individual look. Plated with 14k gold, it’s just a gorgeous option that everyone will love, even when it comes to the gifts for the hard to buy for!

Little Letter Necklace, $82

Black Pineapple Christmas Cocktail Kit

Kiwi cocktail connoisseurs Black Pineapple have created an iconic limited-edition cocktail kit especially for Christmas with gift-giving (and drinking!) in mind. The festively fruity ‘Anna’s Pavlova’ cocktail kit is packed with summer berries and strawberry-infused gin, topped off with a raspberry coulis meringue.

The kit can be purchased on its own with just the cocktails, or it can be taken to the next level and bundled up to include Black Pineapple’s pro bar kit and glassware. 

Anna’s Pavlova Cocktail kit, from $69

Dermalogica Personalised Skin Kit

Perfect for the hard to buy for, the Smart Response Serum inside delivers what your skin needs, when it needs it with SmartResponse technology that helps stop skin damage before it starts – using four smart actives which, when triggered, hydrate, brighten, soothe, and address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in response to skin’s changing needs.

Personalised Skin Kit, $255

Diving Into Cyprus Diffuser

Scent is an essential component for a cosy home, so treat someone with a fragrance that’s perfect for them! A diffuser is a great way to have a gentle, always-on scent in the home – try this summery Diving Into Cyrpus option from Glasshouse Fragrances (and check out our scented candle awards if a flame is more your vibe!)

Diving in Cyprus Diffuser, $59.95

Caci Gift Voucher: Hydrating Facial + Lash, Brow Tint and Shape

Nourish skin with the ultimate hydrating facial – it’s perfect for all skin types, and it’ll give your gift intended a lovely experience too. Vouchers are packaged and delivered to your nominated address, and are valid for 12 months and can be redeemed at all 80+ Caci clinics nationwide.

Hydrating Facial + Lash, Brow Tint and Shape $135

Tame BodyTamer

A new personal grooming brand is about to unleash on the New Zealand beauty market. 100% homegrown and refreshingly gender-neutral, it’s called Tame and the trimming tools are designed for all grooming needs – for anyone and everyone who has hair, anywhere. Tame offers the ultimate self-care – no shaving cream, no bandaids required. Instead, the trimmers can be used on dry skin to deliver a close shave quickly – ideal if you’re busy and need a quick refresh. And if you struggle with ingrown hairs, they’re a godsend – they cut close, but not so close that hairs get caught in the skin.

Tame BodyTamer, $127

Personalised Picnic Blanket

If you’re a certain age (read, over 30) you’ll know how valuable a good picnic blanket is – in fact in my experience, it’s the thing that everyone always fights over in the swappy secret santas. Delight that hard to buy for person with a personalised blanket that they’ll have for years (Personalised favours also do a GORGEOUS personalised merino blanket, too).

Personalised picnic blanket, $155

Personalised Engraved Beer Mug and Beer Mate

On the same vein, a personalised beer mug is perfect when it comes to hard to buy for gifts – so no one ever takes ‘their’ mug again, is also an absolute vibe!

Personalised Beer Mug, $55.15
