For some reason, I always find it hard to buy presents for grown-ups. Maybe that’s because it always seems like they have everything or there’s nothing they want. Hopefully, with these gift ideas for grown-ups you’ll find some inspiration.
Don’t you just love the smell of Christmas? The Eau Holy Night Christmas Candle by Eau Lovely has the scent of cinnamon, bitter oranges and fresh cedar, with an addition of fresh aromatic pine needles. You can’t get much more Christmassy than this!
What do you get someone who seems to have everything already? Personalised hampers from Boutique Gifts are a great idea as you can get something to suit the person you’re buying for. My husband would love this wine and cheese hamper, filled with lovely goodies just for him.
Got a foodie to buy for? Opies have a wonderful range of fruits soaked in alcohol, which are perfect for Christmas. Opies also offer other various jars including stem ginger, pickled walnuts and ingredients for cocktails.
Sometimes you have someone to buy for who you might not know very well. Wine is usually a good way to go, with some fantastic options from Independent Wine. Whether it be red, white or bubble, they have something bound to suit. If you need to order online and have a gift sent, Independent Wine offer free next day delivery, free gift wrap and a customised card with any order.
I always love getting a new set for the bath for Christmas and this year, ARRAN’s Glen Rosa gift set is a stand out for me. The colours of the packaging are beautiful and inside you get body lotion and a bath and shower gel.
It’s so important to look after your skin, especially in winter when it can really dry out. Aveeno have a wonderful range of products from body wash to soothing toning lotions and gel moisturisers. Why not put a skincare hamper together for someone this Christmas!
Enjoy a relaxing, luxurious bath with the Vanilla Rose bath salt blend from Made by Coopers. Including Vanilla and Ylang Ylang essential oils, this will definitely help to rejuvenate the skin and help you to unwind. The jar is pretty big so it will last for ages!
Make someone’s home smell divine with a very vanilla flower diffuser from The Candle Brand. The vegan and cruelty free diffuser comes in a beautiful glass vase, using ‘uniquely fragranced flower bouquet powered by both reeds and a cotton rope’. There is also a wildflower seeded label which can be planted!
Give the gift of a pamper at home this year, with the SBC body wash and moisturising gel available from SBC Skincare. If you’re not sure what goes together, the website has great pages with duos and trios, making it super easy to choose.
I love a book set at Christmas, no matter where we are in the year. Harper Collins has two fab releases this year; The Christmas Holiday by Philipa Ashley and A Winter Wedding at Bletchley Park by Molly Green.
With the rising cost of heating bills I think quite a few of us will be adding on more layers this year. The Pendleberry Hoody from TOG24 is ideal for this. I love the bold sunrise with birds on the front and it comes in sizes from small all the way up to 4XL!
Who doesn’t love a new pair of pyjamas for Christmas? TOG24’s relax short set in faded pink are super soft and come in a little bag, perfect if you want to take them away with you. Of course, that also makes them look like a lovely gift. They also come in blue!
Get someone wrapped up warm this winter with the Brington colour blocked scarf from TOG24. The ladies version, as seen above, comes in pink and navy while the men’s version is black and grey. Why not buy matching scarves for a couple?
Is it even Christmas without a new pair of socks? TOG24’s Bishop Coolmax Trek Sock come in three different colours; chilli red, blue and ceramic blue, all of which are a good choice. These walking socks help to regulate feet’s temperature while keeping you comfortable at the same time.
Maybe you’ve got older children to buy for, or an awkward husband. Shoes can be a great choice for a gift and these Adidas Originals Gazelle Trainers Black from Mainline Menswear are bound to be a hit. In classic black and white, the Adidas stripes stand out and look super cool.
These days, so many more people are moving from traditional toothbrushes to electric ones. The Oclean Flow electric toothbrush is a great starter for someone looking to make the change. It has various settings and a really helpful 2-minute timer, to ensure you’re brushing like you’re supposed to. It also comes in a variety of colours.
Puzzles can make great gifts, for everyone really, but there are some more suited to adults. The Carnovsky puzzle can be done in 3 different ways, depending on which glasses you use! With a red, blue and green view, this puzzle is bound to keep someone busy for a while.

Got a crazy cat lady to buy for this year (or crazy cat man)? I absolutely love Kikkerland’s Cat Yoga Fridge Magnets, which are available from Oliver Bonas. The pack contains 5 new feline friends, all doing different yoga poses.
If you’re looking for some great new artwork for your home then take a look at The Print Fox on Etsy. Here you’ll find all sorts from adorable woodland animals (in a series), a fox called Reynard and tarot card prints. Not only would they look great in your home, they make awesome gifts.
We all know that when it comes to Christmas, things take over. You end up with gifts, wrapping paper and accessories, cards and decorations absolutely everywhere. Give someone the gift of being organised this year with the mega Christmas deal from storage specialist BiGDUG. Included is two powder-coated steel shelves in a durable red finish, a garage workstation, 15 x plastic storage boxes and 24 red plastic parts!
