We all know one. That person who just seems to have everything they could ever want. Second only, to the person who seems to want for nothing. What do you buy these people? A pair of socks or candle just don’t seem to cut it, but what if you can’t afford to break the bank either? If you’ve got someone like this in your family in either category, you’ll know first hand what a nightmare it can be to buy for them come Christmas. But if none of our homemade gift ideas suited and you couldn’t find anything for under £15, then take a look at these 10 present ideas instead. We guarantee they’ll be at least one thing to get them smiling.

 

A Luxury Cinema Experience

Everyone loves going to the cinema but add in a bed, some cosy throws, a gourmet hot dog and a glass of champagne and going to the pictures becomes a whole other experience. This is what a Luxury Cinema offers, a relaxed viewing experience that comes with all of the luxury you might expect from a top restaurant, posh hotel and exclusive bar rolled into one. If there’s a film lover in your life or someone who just enjoys the finer things in life, invite them in and give them the type of ambience a long-awaited film deserves.

Our top pick: Electric Cinema on Portobello Road where leather armchairs, cashmere blankets and delicious, crisp cocktails await you.

Cost? At £36 for a pair of armchair seats, it’s the luxury experience that everyone can afford. Get yours here

 

A Night-In Hamper

When the nights are colder, suddenly staying in and staying cost becomes the most acceptable form of entertainment. While a bag of Mars Planets is all very well, why not treat the ones you love to a luxury night-in hamper that’s homemade and filled with delights that will make them reluctant to ever leave the sofa again. Cheese and wine makes for an indulgent, romantic treat, whereas popcorn, a huge tub of retro sweets and bags of Monster Munch will delight a whole family and make movie night so much more fun. Package it up in a cellophane flume, bright ribbon or even old-fashioned brown paper and string and you’ll have them delighting at the next chance of a Friday night spent at home.

A Classic Jumper

A jumper as a present, boring you say, worst present ever! But hang on a minute, I’m not talking about your standard Topshop or Topman number. The best presents are the ones you wouldn’t buy for yourself, those luxury items that you can’t justify on a daily basis but which you still covet and need to have, hanging up in your wardrobe. Cashmere, Merino Wool and Mohair jumpers are exactly that. Soft and cosy but also smart and luxurious. They’re a classic piece that can be worn to work, relaxed in off duty and are timeless, so they’ll never go out of style.

Our top picks:

This Men’s pure Cashmere crew neck jumper for £89 from M&S

This Ladie’s 100% Cashmere Jumper from H&M

 

Leather Gloves

Just like a cashmere scarf, a pair of good leather gloves are a timeless, classic item that every wardrobe needs, helping to keep the wearer looking stylish while also keeping their hands toasty warm! The men and the women in your life will love this winter-wear top up in their stocking this Christmas and if you wrap it up in a gorgeous gift box, they’ll look even more special than they already are!

Our top picks:

The ASOS 100% leather gloves, for £16 (with touchscreen capability)

These Men’s Brown Leather Designer Gloves from John Rocha at Debenhams

 

Open Air Theatre Ticket

To get your family members thinking about those long, hazy summer evenings grab them tickets for an Open Air Theatre play. The atmosphere is electric and with a choice of anything from Peter Pan, to Lord of the Flies, they’ll be something for even the most hard to buy for person.

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, with tickets between £25 and £60

 

Luxury Bath Oil

Standard bath bubbles get pretty old, pretty quickly but a luxury bath oil is a beautiful gift that will last almost until next Christmas! Go for a heady scent, for Winter relaxation or a bright, fruity floral to bring on thoughts of Spring and wrap up in a gorgeous gift box or sweet paper, to show that hard to buy for friend or family member, just how much you care.

Our top pick: This gorgeous, decadent selection from Penhaligon’s

 

A Helicopter Ride Over London

There is no better way to celebrate the Capital of the country then in a helicopter sightseeing experience. You may think you know London, but it’s a whole other story when you’re viewing it from an up-above perspective. For the hard to buy for person in your life, this will be an experience they can enjoy and one which will help them to reconnect with London’s beautiful sights and landmarks – away from the crowds.

Cost? The London Helicopter packages, start from £150 per person

 

Personalised Scarf

Bypass the standard hat and gloves set this Christmas and choose a personalised scarf instead. Not only will this make your loved one feel special but it will also turn a standard scarf into a gift they’ll want to keep forever.

Top pick: Selfridges has gone personalised crazy this Christmas and we love this Johnstons Lambswool Scarf
