For the fitness fanatic

Whether their workout routine is ‘runs 10km before breakfast’ or ‘sprints to the couch to watch the NFL’, there are gift options aplenty. Athletes will appreciate proper gear – choose from boxfresh runners, luxe leggings or anything made from a sweat-wicking fabric. Tangle-resistant hair ties, lip balm and SPF go down a treat, too. If you’re looking to splurge, a massage therapy gun will elevate their post-workout recovery to new heights. Wireless earbuds are another thoughtful option for gym bunnies and couch potatoes alike.

Try David Jones, Stirling Sports, Lorna Jane, Ice Breaker or Under Armor.

For the tech head

If they’re always talking about gadgets that boost productivity or telling you to download the latest app, a techie gift is in order. Most technology lovers have got the basics covered, so look for clever ways to make their life a little more futuristic. A wireless photo printer allows for happy snaps to be printed directly from a smartphone. A temperature controlled smart mug is another winner – they’ll never suffer through a cold cup of tea again. Even black thumbs will appreciate a smart garden which uses LED lights to grow herbs indoors.

Try Noel Leeming, EB Games or Farmers.

For the coffee fiend

Serious coffee drinkers are pretty particular about their beans and coffee-making methods so opt for gifts that enhance what they’ve already got going on. Think: a top of the line grinder, double-walled coffee cups, or a reusable thermos for toting outdoors. Help them perfect their home brew with a how-to book, or hit them with a gift card to their favourite java spot. If all else fails you can’t go wrong with beautiful marble coasters, a latte-scented candle and coffee body scrub combo or – the ultimate – chocolate-covered espresso beans.

Try David Jones, Farmers and Nespresso.

For the fashion obsessive

Stuck on what to get for the person in your life with an A plus wardrobe? Impress them with accessories, classic buys or fashion-adjacent gifts. If you know what they like and – most importantly – where they shop, consider sunglasses, jewellery or hats. Each one is easy to size making it easier to shop for than clothing. It might be out of season but cashmere never disappoints. Socks, a scarf, or a classic crew neck sweater are all timeless picks. A coffee table book on a favourite designer, style icon or travel hot spot is another chic choice.

Try Aje, Country Road, Sass & Bide, Seed Heritage, Merchant 1948 and Sandro.

For the beauty buff

Beauty is deeply personal which can make it extra-tricky to navigate. Your best bet is to stick to your giftee’s current product lineup or seek out cult favourites. (Hundreds of five star reviews can’t be wrong, right?) Know their skincare/makeup/haircare favourite brand? Opt for one of their holiday-themed gift sets and you’re golden. If you’re looking to splurge, consider a cleansing tool or LED light gadget – they’re all the rage right now. If in doubt, restock their signature scent or get them a gift voucher for a luxurious treatment.

Try Laser Clinics, Farmers, Life Pharmacy, David Jones, Sephora, and Mecca.

For the home chef

Shopping for a foodie? Good news – there are zillions of gifting options guaranteed to please. Cult kitchen appliances (think: KitchenAid’s mixer, a Le Creuset casserole or Smeg’s retro range) are a good place to start if you have cash to splash. Trendy gadgets like an air fryer or multi-cooker still make an impression but are easier on the wallet. If you’ve no idea what they like, opt for a crowd pleaser. Ideas: A cookbook dedicated to their favourite cuisine, luxe linen apron, professional chef’s knife, serving platter or even a dining voucher.

Try Le Creuset, David Jones and Farmers.

For the outdoorsy type

Unless you’re a fellow adventurer, you might be hard pressed finding a gift for someone who is. Especially if they’ve got loads of gear already. The safest approach here is to suss out their interests – camping, fishing, skiing or rock climbing etc – and let that lead you. Look for biographies or practical guides, tough cases for their smartphone or tablet, waterproof pockets for stashing important things or super-sturdy footwear. Weatherproof gear is appreciated by just about everyone, especially when it’s made from recycled materials.

Try Kathmandu, Torpedo 7 and Rebel Sport.

For the teens

Teenagers are notoriously difficult to shop for. Thanks to social media, they embrace – then dump – trends at lightning speed. Your best chance at finding teenage gifts they’ll like is to ask them. Want to do things the old fashioned way? Visit their go-to stores and ask what’s flying off the shelves. A special piece of jewellery or new tech, is always welcome. So too, personalised gifts – a new phone case will be gladly received. Another option is to treat them with cinema tickets (Gold Class, obviously) or a Westfield gift voucher.

Try Event Cinemas, Stirling Sports, Hype DC, EB Games and H&M.

For the little ones

A special outfit – something mum and dad wouldn’t dare splurge on themselves – will be appreciated more than you know. (Get them something in a size bigger so they can grow into it for extra brownie points.) Books and toys are no-brainer baby gifts. Ask about new releases to reduce the risk of buying something they already have. Depending on their age, a hobby they can work on with a parent is a really sweet option. Art stores are an untapped resource – a DIY activity box filled with art supplies is a gift that keeps on giving.

Try GoGo Kids, Whitcoulls and Farmers.
