12 Christmas Gifts For Hard to Buy For People That Already Have Everything

We all have those hard to buy for friends and family members, the ones that never tell you what they want or already seem to have everything they need. When it comes to Christmas time that can be a pain… don’t worry though, we’ve got you covered. Here’s 12 gift ideas for that hard to buy for person.

1. A  T Rex skull

Let’s face it, who doesn’t want a T Rex skull adorning their home? This realistic looking skull will turn any room from looking stark to Jurassic park.

It comes in various sizes too, so not having a coffee table big enough isn’t an excuse. If they’re a really great friend, buy them a big one, if they’re more of a casual acquaintance, buy them a small one. It’s the ultimate universal Christmas gift from the cretaceous period.

  • Price: £21.95 to £110 (depending on the size).
  • Three sizes: Small, large and extra large.

2. A friendly flowerpot hanger

If you have a green-fingered friend who already boasts a menagerie of pots and plants, maybe you could get them something to spruce them up with.

These cute flower pot hangers come in a variety of animal designs: Cat, mouse, gecko, frog and hare.

They'll grasp onto the flowerpot rim for dear life whilst adding some playful character.

  • Price: £ £5.95 - £7.50
  • Several designs: Frog, mouse, cat, rabbit gecko

3. A really cool moving cogs wall clock

There’s no gift more special to give on Christmas than the gift of time. Here it is encapsulated in a really cool wall clock with moving cogs.

Everyone has a clock, yes, but hardly anyone has one as awesome as this. It makes a great talking point and its timeless design will fit into any room from classy living space to greasy workshop and dirty old man cave.

If you previously thought clocks were boring, you won’t be able to stop watching these ones tik tok along.

4. An octopus citrus reamer / lemon squeezer

Now, maybe your friend hasn’t told you what they want for Christmas. Maybe they also haven’t told you that they are also really bad at reaming lemons and squeezing citrus fruits. Why would they? No one wants to admit to that, it’s embarrassing.

That’s why you need to buy them Octo, the friendliest reamer of them all. No longer do your friends have to worry about their secret weakness, because you’ve given them the tool to help them compensate.

When life gives you lemons, give you friends a lemon squeezer for Christmas.

  • Price: £9.95 - that's under ten squid!

5. A Pagan Inspired Vase or Flower Pot

Pagan Hand and Face Vases and Flower Pots | Happy Piranha

If your friend really does already have everything, then they probably have some flowers, and those flowers will need a vase or pot to sit in.

Yes they may already have a standard vase, but do they have one shaped as a pagan inspired sleeping face, or the hands of mother Gaia herself reaching up from the earthy ground? No, probably not!

Available in black or white these also look great as a pair.

  • Price: £10.50 - £11.95

6. A mini dinosaur lamp

If your friend has left you in the dark about what they want for Christmas, give them the gift of light.

We all know that there’s no better source of light than one that comes from a cute, origami style dinosaur. These mini dinosaur lamps come in several designs too, so if they’re not a pink stegosaurus kind of person there’s a T Rex, Diplodocus and Triceratops one too!

  • Price: £9.95
  • Four designs: Stegosaurus, diplodocus, T Rex and Triceratops 

7. An octopus candle holder

If the person you’re buying for this Christmas already has everything they need, remember, it’s no fun if it’s all in the dark where they can’t see it.

Have no fear; this octopus candle stick holder will hold all the candles they need to illuminate all of their stuff.

Unless they’re a scrooge they’ll probably have some candles to light for Christmas and this little fella will make sure they’re held safe and high.

8. A fun shaped storage jar

Phrenology Head and Green Parrot Storage Jars | Happy Piranha

If you're friend already has a standard shaped storage jar, why not get them somewhere more fun to store their knickknacks whilst adding some character to their home décor too.

We bet they don't have a green parrot shaped one and if they do, surely they wont have a tattooed phrenology head or pineapple shaped one as well... and of they do, do they have it in gold?

  • Price: £9.95 - £35.95

9. A golden parrot ornament

While doves and Turkeys are the general birds of Christmas, don’t forget the majesty of the humble parrot. Remind your friend of that with this golden parrot ornament.

Sitting on a wooden perch, this golden bird will add an element of curiosity and bling to your friend’s apartment, something which it may have been lacking before.

Do they like birds, or shiny things? Or are you just stuck for what to get them? Then get them this.

  • Price: £29.95

10. The Tea Sub tea diffuser

Now lots of people drink tea, especially at Christmas time when it’s cold outside. Christmas is also the time when people tend to crack out those speciality loose leaf teas.

If you don’t want your good friend to miss out on such festive frivolities, they’ll need a tea diffuser to join in. That’s where the Tea Sub comes in – the ultimate deep tea exploration machine.

  • Price: £8.95

11. Some novel coasters

Pokeball coasters | Happy Piranha

Almost everyone has some kind of table where they sit down to drink their coffee or eat their dinner at, that’s why coasters are a great gift for that hard to buy for person.

What’s better than any old coaster though? One with a design on of something they like.

Check out these ones.

  • Price: From £2.95 each

12. A scented candle

Scented candles | Happy Piranha

Nothing says Christmas like a cosy atmosphere and your favourite smells. That’s why a scented candle could be the perfect gift for that friend that’s hard to buy for this Christmas.

What’s better than any old scented candle though? An original design, hand poured scented candle, forged in the Happy Piranha wax works in Truro, Cornwall.

With an array of scents and designs to choose from, there’s one to match everyone.

When they’re sitting at home this Christmas and one of our hand-picked scents wafts across their nose, they’ll think of you and remember the thoughtful gift you bought them.
