Gifts for THAT person that is impossible to buy for

We all have one of those people in our lives. You know those people...the ones that seem to have everything and are just impossible to buy for. I have put together some quirky gifts to help make it easier to shop for THAT person. 

Remington : Volume Up Straightening Brush* : $79

Now we have been seeing straightening brushes pop up for a while now, but I think this was the one of that most excited me. The Volume Up Straightening Brush straightens your hair while adding volume to create smooth styles in minutes. Combining all the benefits from a straightener, a straightening brush and a curling tong in one tool, this unique straightening brush adds volume to the roots and adds flicks at the tips for the perfect blow-dried look. The unique thing about this brush is that it has bristles 360 degrees around the brush, making it so much easier then the flat head straightening brushes. 

Palm Beach : Mini Winter Pine Diffuser and Candle Set* : $29.95 

What better than a cute Christmas candle sent for a Christmas gift? Basically nothing. This little set from Palm Beach is the cutest candle I have ever seen. Inside you get the cutest mini diffuser and candle in their LE Winter Pine scent. Notes include:

TOP: Bergamot, Orange, Cassis, Fig, Green.
HEART: Lily of the Valley, Jasmine, Strawberry, Fir, Lavender.
BASE: Musk, Vanilla, Clove, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Pine.

Ecology x May Gibbs : Gardening Tools (2 Pack)* : $49.95

I mean if these are not the cutest gardening tools you have ever seen, then I don't know what it. They are beautifully designed, with the May Gibbs Snugglepot and Cuddlepie design printed on them. I am planning on giving these as a gift at Christmas, but I kind of just want to keep them. Maybe it's just me getting into gardening at the moment, but I feel like it's starting to become a more popular hobby, so if you have a friend (or family member) that loves to garden, then these would be perfect! They'd also make a great Secret Santa gift.

Ecology x May Gibbs : Gardening Gloves* : $16.95

I mean, if you're going to get the gardening tools, you might as well get the gorgeous gloves to match and make it one perfect set! Again, they have the beautiful May Gibbs Snugglepot and Cuddlepie design on them, and come in two different colour options, to match the Gardening Tools. 

Grown Alchemist : Body Care Set : $115 

Meticulously crafted and delicately scented, this body-loving duo are sure to tantalise the senses and transform skin with a rich, aromatic blend of bioactive ingredients which gently cleanse and condition skin, leaving it softened, nourished and loved. This gorgeous set comes in the loveliest chrome packaging with the gentle gel Cleanser (500ml) is infused with an aromatic blend of neroli, rosemary and tangerine fruit oils to soften, tone and condition skin, while chamomile, rosewood and bergamot extracts help regenerate skin cells and boost elasticity. As well as the deeply hydrating Body Cream (500ml) nourishes and boosts cellular turnover with a pairing of shea butter and mandarin extract, while rosemary leaf extract and wheatgerm boost firm and tone skin, leaving it supple and soft.

Cheeki : Reusable Stainless Steel Straws* : from $10.95

We are all trying to do our bit to help the planet at the moment, so why not grab your friend or family member some gorgeous metal straws. Cheeki have the most beautiful straw sets at decent prices available at the moment. They come in bent or straight, and come in black, gold, rose gold and silver. They also come in 2 packs or 4 packs, each with a cleaning brush. They're gorgeous and feel so luxurious to use, and best of all they are good for the planet! 

T2 : The Spellbound Cider* : $30

Maybe you have a Tea lover in your life. If so, then the T2 collection might be right up their alley. The Spellbound Cider is one of their limited edition Christmas teas. An intriguing spiced cider sends the twelve kingdoms into a fervour of warm spices and sweet apple. Mystery still surrounds what exactly Beatrice Bardolf adds to her family’s secret recipe, but one thing's for sure: it’s a deliciously spiced concoction of apple cider notes with a hearty spark of feminine heroism. It comes packaged in the cutest book box with a little story inside as well. 

T2 : A Tea Party for Twenty : $22 

If you do have a tea lover in your life or someone hoping to expand their tea collection, this might be the set for them. Inside this little box is 20 different teas, including some of T2's most iconic flavours, perfect for any tea lover or enthusiast.
