What do you buy for someone you don’t know very well?


It’s inevitable, every Christmas you have to find a gift for someone you don’t know very well. A distant relative, a cousins new husband, your partner's best friend's wife?

It’s tough, do you get them a gift that makes them think you know them and you really did listen when they told you about their weekend carp fishing OR do you hastily re-wrap some chocolates that you got from the office raffle?

The answer is none of the above. In fact, what you should buy someone you don’t know very well is a well designed, ‘too expensive for what it is’ type item. You know the kind of thing, like this candle is really nice, but I wouldn’t buy it for this amount.’.

It’s the perfect crime, I mean gift, it’s something they wouldn’t buy for themselves and you look generous and thoughtful. There’s always the fail-safe luxury bath items, quirky and luxurious or a ‘make your own’ type gift, like this terrarium (so hot right now).

Take a look at these perfect gifts for people you don’t know very well and let us know what you think.
