Christmas Gift Ideas in 2022 for Even the Most Difficult People
Yes, believe it or not, Christmas time is upon us once again. After such a disrupted and trying year, the festive season will be particularly joyous as we seize the opportunity to spoil one another just a little bit. The trick, of course, is finding the right gifts to do the spoiling.
We all know one or two people who are notoriously difficult to buy for. Each year, the time comes for a lot of head-scratching and nail-biting as we endlessly troll websites and catalogues, searching futilely for something to please a challenging recipient.
Well, this year, you can get your life back and get that perfect present! The team at Creative Hampers have put together a list of the best gift hampers on offer, guaranteed to spoil whoever it is you have in mind, no matter how difficult they may be to buy for. After you've perused this list, check out our complete range of Christmas gift hampers for 2022.
For the wine lovers (or oenophiles as their officially known) in your life, we have a fantastic selection of festive gift hampers to choose from. If full-bodied reds are their weakness, then you can’t go past Robert Oatley's Shiraz Gourmet Platter, complete with every kind of gourmet appetiser you could possibly think of, from sea salt artisan crackers through to Mt Zero Australian grown olives. For white wine lovers, we also have a the same hamper complete with Robert Oatley’s famed Sauvignon Blanc.
If you think their tastes run towards something a bit lighter, then check out our Wine in the Sun gift hamper, including a boutique Sauvignon Blanc from South Australia, two very chic insulated wine tumblers, a picnic throw and nibbles – all ready for a little sunset appreciation picnic at the beach this summer.
Negroni is the drink of the moment, so for those who prefer to sit back and savour, Negroni Nights is one Christmas gift hamper that is sure to satisfy. It contains everything needed for the perfect beverage.
Some things never get old or, if they do, swiftly come back into fashion. We’re looking at you, Bailey’s. If the difficult recipient likes something smooth and rich, you can’t go past Bailey’s & Berries, complete with indulgent accompaniments like rocky road and raspberry meringues. This Christmas hamper will definitely be followed by an afternoon catnap.
The final instalment in our boozy-themed hampers is, of course, the bubbles. If you suspect the recipient has a weak spot for sparkling, you can’t walk past A Pampering Sparkling Christmas. A bottle of Pink Chandon nestled among sea salt and cedar wash, bath salts and candles, as well as pretzels and chocolate-coated coffee beans? Say no more.
For those who like to combine lazy afternoons under the summer sun with their bubbly obsessions, check out our appropriately named Bubbly Days Out. This epic Christmas gift hamper has everything needed for a memorable day at the beach or botanic gardens, already packed in a gorgeous wicker picnic insulated picnic basket which is the must have picnic accessory for 2022.
For something a little off the charts and ridiculously indulgent, consider Swarovski, Veuve & Chocolates. The name says it all. This gift basket contains everything needed for a truly memorable Christmas – even Bon Bons with gifts you’d actually want.
It’s safe to say that everyone’s had it tougher than usual this year, so this Christmas is the perfect excuse to provide a little pampering. On that note, have a look at our Relax & Indulge Her package, containing everything needed to destress and unwind. Velvet heat pillow, soap, body butter, milk and dark chocolate – it’s a gift basket designed to put the pandemic at the back of your mind.
Chocolate, rocky road, melting moments, shortbread bites… it’s all here in our aptly-named Sweet Tooth gift hamper, the perfect package of all things moreish for those with a sweet soft spot. Maybe they’d prefer the occasional savoury treat, in which case our Foodies Hamper is just the ticket, or consider the Paella Fusion kit if they’re not afraid of the kitchen.
As you can see, we have the range to cover even the trickiest of recipients. The trouble now will be choosing between such excellent hampers! We offer free delivery on hampers to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth & everywhere between. This year– more than any other year – it’s key to make your selection as early as possible to give your gift the best chance of arriving in time. The pandemic has played havoc with delivery and supply of goods, so get in early to make sure the lucky recipient has something special waiting for them under the tree on December 25.
