15 Christmas Gift Ideas For People Who Have Everything

Christmas time is rolling around and you’re ordering loads of gifts for friends and family. Most people have been accounted for, but there’s always someone who throws a spanner in the works. Everyone has at least one family member who never drops hints and buys themselves little gifts throughout the year. How on earth are you supposed to buy for them!? 

It’s tough, but we’ll help you out with a series of gift ideas for someone who has everything. Consider this your one-stop shop of inspiration for people who are hard to buy for. 

See all the gift ideas below – we’ve split them into price brackets and provided links for your convenience. 

Gift Ideas Under £15

It’s hard enough buying gifts for someone with everything, let alone when you’re working on a tight budget! Here are some of our best gift ideas for under £15: 

Edinburgh Gin Set (£13.60 On Sale)

You can’t go wrong with alcohol, and this Edinburgh Gin Set from John Lewis comes in at £13.60. It is currently on sale by 15% until December 12th, so make sure you act fast to snap this up. You get two small bottles of gin – Rhubarb & Ginger and Orange Blossom & Mandarin. They’re perfect with a bit of tonic water and make excellent Christmas mixers. 

Christmas Coal (£13.95)

Fortnum and Mason is one of the biggest and most luxurious department stores in the UK, yet it provides some excellent gift ideas for someone who has everything. There’s something funny about presenting a loved one with Christmas Coal – though this coal is delicious. For £13.95 you get 250 grams worth of cinder toffee dipped and coated in rich milk chocolate. It then gets covered in black lemon sherbert for a truly unique taste. Perfect for any honeycomb lovers in your family or friend group. 

Bath and Body Sets (£10 & £14)

Listen, everyone needs to shower, right? Getting a nice bath and body set can help your loved one smell their best. It’s something that will always get used and a lot of people wait for Christmas to stock up on body wash and lotion going into the new year. 

We’ve got two options to try – one for men and one for women. The men’s one is £10 by the Fragrance Society at M&S and gives you bath/shower gel and hand/body lotion. For women, spend a bit more at £14 for the Bloom & Glow British Rose Mini Gift Set at The Body Shop. It includes shower gel, body butter and hand cream all smelling delightful of British roses. 

Gift Ideas Under £25

Increase your budget by £10 and you could purchase any of the following gift ideas under £25: 

Classic Cheese Gift Basket (£25)

Cheese and Christmas go hand in hand, making this Classic Cheese Gift Basket a wonderful gift idea. It’s £25 from the Snowdonia Cheese Company and is one of our favourite Christmas gift ideas for people who are hard to buy for. You won’t find these cheeses in most shops, so it offers something a bit unique. 

Knoops Hot Chocolate Selection Box (£18)

£18 gets you a gourmet Hot Chocolate Selection Box from Knoops. This is one of the best hot chocolate brands out there as it does away with powder and makes all drinks out of delicious chocolate flakes. Trust us, you taste the difference! Few things beat a warming mug of hot chocolate during the cold winter chill, so we know this gift will be greatly appreciated. 

Personalised Enamel Photo Mug (£17.99)

Let’s be real, you can never have too many mugs in your house. This Enamel Photo Mug is available for £17.99 at Photobox and you can personalise it by choosing the image emblazoned on the side. Personal gifts are always excellent gift ideas for someone who has everything because you know for a fact they don’t have this! There’s a sentimental element too, making it a heart-warming idea for parents or partners. 

Gift Ideas Under £50

We’ve doubled our budget for this next section of gift ideas for people who are hard to buy for and you’ll find a slew of excellent options: 

A4 Photo Book (From £43.99)

Staying with the photo idea, Photobox also does excellent A4 Hardcover Photo Books, starting at £43.99. You get to choose from 8 cover colours and a wide variety of background themes. There are at least 120 pages per book, so get ready to fill it with timeless memories. It’s a beautiful gift idea if you want to pluck at someone’s heartstrings for under £50. 

Pott’d Air Dry Clay Home Pottery Kit (£44)

What do you buy someone who has everything? You get them something to do! This Air Dry Clay Home Pottery Kit from Pott’d is a highly-rated Christmas gift. The recipient gets a kit with clay and sculpting tools, enabling them to make pretty much whatever their heart desires. There’s enough stuff in the kit for two people, so it’s an excellent option to gift to couples. 

£44 is the standard price – or you can sign up to the Pott’d email list and receive a 10% discount code for your first order, taking the price down to £39.60. 

A Festive Food Hamper (£35)

Food has been a strong theme throughout this gift guide because nobody turns their nose up at a good food gift! For just £35, you can purchase this gorgeous Winter Favourites Box from Cartwright and Butler. Again, join the mailing list and you get 10% off your first order!

The hamper comes in a stunning tin and provides a host of Christmas-themed treats such as biscuits, fudge and a mulled wine spice bag. 

Gift Ideas Under £75

If you want to extend your budget once more, you open the door to some higher-end gift ideas for tricky people: 

Chilly’s Christmas Bundle (£66)

Chilly’s cups are the best around if you want to keep drinks either warm or cold for hours. Combine the water bottle and coffee cup in this Christmas Bundle for £66. We think it’s a top gift for morning commuters – they finally have a cup that keeps their coffee warm all the way to work, plus a bottle to stay hydrated. 

Polo Ralph Lauren Leather Wallet (£70)

If we’re being realistic, most of you are looking to buy your dad a gift. Dads are classically known to have everything and provide zero gift ideas. Give your dad a treat this Christmas with a £70 Polo Ralph Lauren Leather Wallet – available at Selfridges. It’s exquisitely made and almost certain to be a lot better than the massive old dad wallet he’s currently walking around with. 

Diptyque Scented Candle (£67)

Scented candles are some of our go-to gift ideas for someone who has everything and they’re available in all price ranges. Go all out this year with a Diptyque Delice Scented Candle. It burns for 40 hours and comes in a fabulous glass jar – which can easily be reused after. Snag it for £67 on Selfridges for the candle-lover in your life. 

Gift Ideas Under £100

Those of you looking for gifts under £100 but over £75 will find life a bit easier! There are plenty to choose from – but here are our favourites: 

Virgin Experience Days (Mixed Prices)

Virgin Experience Days give people a chance to experience something new. You’ll find loads of different experiences to buy for people, such as the lovely Stratford Upon Avon Boat Cruise with Afternoon Tea For Two (£79)

Or, gift someone a trip to London with this Visit to The View from The Shard with Champagne for Two (£86).

Pick whatever type of experience you think the recipient will enjoy. Currently, there’s a 10% discount on the two gifts mentioned above if you use code XMAS10 at checkout. There are no details on when this expires so get it while you can! 

ESPA Winter Aromatherapy Collection (£80.50 with 30% Discount)

Give someone the gift of a nice smelling home this Christmas. Smelly things always hit the spot because who doesn’t want their home to smell great?! The ESPA Winter Aromatherapy Collection includes an electric diffuser and different scented oils. 

It’s a wonderful gift for someone who is hard to buy for, especially if you know they’re under a lot of stress. We found it for £80.50 on Look Fantastic, though this is with a 30% discount already applied. It says the offer is for a “limited time only” so we recommended ordering ASAP. 

Always Pan 2.0 (£89 in the Holiday Sale)

The Always Pan 2.0 has won numerous awards thanks to its 10-in-1 cookware system and trendy design. The person you’re buying for may have everything, but we bet they’re still using some grubby pots and pans. 

Help them clear space in their kitchen cabinets and cook more efficiently with this classy piece of cookware. It’s massively discounted from now until the end of the year, meaning you can purchase the Standard Size pan for £89 instead of £130. 

So, it turns out it is possible to find gift ideas for someone who has everything! Pick your budget and then check out any of the gifts shown above.
