It's that time of year again. I've perused, I've listened, I've googled my heart out.
Still can't find that perfect gift for someone.
They also consider gift cards not a present.
Let's start some ideas...please.
The receivee is female and usually buys everything they need.

What to buy for that 'hard-to-buy-for' person.

Does she like homewares or magazines? There are always new gadgets, platters, bowls, small appliances or cookbooks out this time of year or a magazine subscription to Belle or Vogue etc? I always usually find the latest thing for my sister who usually already has everything ( this year I bought her a new cookbook and chilli mill!)

How much are you wanting to spend on a gift?
What about things that people don't usually get a chance to buy themselves too often like nice body butter, hand cream, bath bombs etc. Otherwise maybe a voucher to get nails done or a massage?
Or what about a nice bottle of wine & chocolates?
Gifts can be hard but I'm sure they'll appreciate the gift

I just got my dh a present from red balloon. They have heaps of different things you can get
My dh is so hard to buy for drives me nuts.
Do they like to read or enjoy the adult colouring in you could do a nice gift pack up for them?

What to buy for that 'hard-to-buy-for' person.
my go-to gifts for fussy female friends:
a nice scented candle: Aesop, ecoya, glasshouse, lascari, just about anything from an upmarket homewares boutique
a nice tea towel: marimekko do some amazing ones. for $45 it's definitely not one she'd be using 😂
some kind of nice/expensive smelling room spray, see point one for brands/where to find
some kind of nice little kitchen gadget or tool, even a really nice cooking spoon rest.
a voucher for a bookshop (if she likes to read)
a nice plant in a cool pot/pot plant bag
a magazine subscription
voucher to one of her fave restaurants
day spa voucher
I'm pretty fussy and would be thrilled with any of the above!
edit: sorry only just saw the bit about not liking gift cards. ignore those points then!
a nice bottle of wine/bubbles is also a lovely idea, if she drinks. you could also make up a luxe foodie hamper/basket full of her fave cheeses and chocolates and other luxe food items plus a nice bottle of wine/bubbles to go with it
or, instead of the day spa gift card, spend a morning or afternoon together going to the day spa and you pay for her treatment.
take her out for lunch at a nice winery

I can always find something nice at dusk for those types of gifts. A nice candle or candle set, or oil burner. They have lots of gift sets too, especially this time of year.
Or if you know what scent she likes the body shop do great packs too.

Best of luck :-)
