If you’re stuck for Christmas present ideas for your family and friends, having a think about their hobbies or what they like to spend their time doing is a great place to start for awesome gift ideas. Are they into fashion, music or gardening? Or perhaps you know a master chef in the making that loves to entertain. Giving someone unique gifts that speaks to their interests or even an inside joke is the perfect way to show them how well you know and appreciate them. Try Farmers.

Gifts under $100

When it comes to a budget of $100 or less, you can look to fashion and beauty for Christmas gifts that’ll keep them looking and feeling fabulous. A new pair of sunglasses or sneakers will give their wardrobe an easy update and one can never own too many of either. If you’re buying for a beauty buff, quality skincare and grooming essentials will add a touch of luxe to their beauty regime, as will a fresh new fragrance for the summer months. Electronic accessories also make for great gifts at this price point. Consider getting them a new charging pad, power bank or speakers to juice up their tech set up.

What better way to spoil those closest to you than with a gift they wouldn’t get for themselves. Maybe it’s a gift set of their favourite fragrance or cologne, or even a new beauty product they've wanted to try? Perhaps you're thinking about their hobbies - are they an adventurer that loves to travel, camp or hike? Take this Christmas as an opportunity to surprise them with a gift you know they'd absolutely love, but claim they don't need. We love, Life Pharmacy.
