 Buying Christmas gifts can be fun but it can also be stressful as there is always that one person on your holiday gift list who is hard to shop for. It seems that there is always one person who seems to have everything they want or they buy themselves everything their heart desires. Then there is the other person who is ultra picky so buying for them is hard. Then there may be the person who is trying to declutter or just wants no gifts and that leaves you at wondering what to buy this friend on your Christmas gift list. So I have a list of gift ideas that would be perfect for the hard to shop for person. Take a look at my unique gift ideas and you may just find the perfect gift for one or more family members or friends.

To save this cool list for later, press the “pin-it” button on the photos to save it to your Pinterest boards. 

1. Drinkmate Countertop Drink Maker

 The Drinkmate Countertop Drink Maker is the first and only carbonation system that can carbonate any beverage. This fun machine creates fun drinks and is perfect for holiday get-togethers. You can add sparkling bubbles to any liquid of your choice. Liquids like water, juices, iced tea or coffee, wine, cocktails, mocktails, and even flat soda or beer. This drink maker needs no batteries or electricity and does not take up much space. This drink maker is a gift that is eco-friendly as it includes a reusable bottle and it will also save money as you can stop buying all those bottled drinks at the store.

  My boys had fun adding bubbles to juice and water. They made deliciously flavored sparkling water with the Drinkmate. The machine was super easy to assemble and it has been helping my boys drink more water as they love the bubbles in their drinks. This item would also make a great gift in a stocking or under the tree! Available in three modern colors: Royal red, Matte black and Ivory white.

5. Food Huggers

 Nobody wants to waste food, and yet we’ve all done it more than we want to admit. To help save some of those half-eaten onions and tomatoes that get forgotten at the back of the fridge, Food Huggers invented a set of patented reusable silicone covers that keep food fresh and offer an alternative to using wasteful single-use plastic wrap, plastic baggies or foil. This year, give a gift that helps your friends and family kick two bad habits with one simple set of Food Huggers. Food Huggers are colorful, fun and easy to use. Reducing plastic waste and food waste is a great gift to give.

 These colorful silicone covers are the perfect product to wrap up so many food items. I love using the food huggers to cover a half of avocado and a grapefruit half. That way I can enjoy them later. The butter hugger is perfect for a stick of butter, especially when the recipe only calls for a couple of tablespoons. My butter stays fresh and clean until I need it for the next recipe.

 The frozen smoothie cubes are made from organic, whole-food ingredients that are scientifically supported to be safe and beneficial for pregnant women. Each of their 22 smoothie blends is designed to support particular symptoms of motherhood from pregnancy symptoms (like morning sickness and swollen ankles) to postpartum needs (like boosting milk supply and mood) to the many needs of an on-the-go mom (like energy and reducing anxiety). When you order the delicious smoothies, you fill in your symptoms, due date or baby’s age, and dietary preferences so the drinks are made for your needs. What a great way for moms and almost anyone who loves smoothies to get some amazing nutrition. One-time smoothie bundles and lactation cookie bundles are available too.

 Loved by fixers, makers, adapters, and improvers in 178 countries around the world for 10 years,  Sugru Mouldable Glue is the ideal gift for the ‘hard to buy for’ during the holiday season. Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue that sticks to almost anything and turns into a strong and flexible rubber overnight. I was able to fix a broken handle on this dish with this amazing glue that is basically like clay but hardens 24 hours after you mold it. I love that I can wash this dish in my dishwasher and the Sugru glue stays put. The kits come with 4 packs of different colors and a great idea book.

9. Wine VEIL

 Tis the Season to entertain!  This is the time of year when being a little “extra” is fine. Whether you need a hostess gift, a gift for someone you don’t know very well…or to just dress up your holiday gathering the Wine VEIL® is a perfect choice! These beautiful veils elegantly lay over a wine glass, bottle or any beverage glass and will add color and sparkle to any holiday party this season. The soft and simple 5” x 5”  squares are made with high-quality organza in a variety of exquisite color swatches and each one is weighted with beautiful silver charms of dragonflies and grape leaves. The result is a shimmery, sheer drape or VEIL over each wine glass, decanter, bottle or any glass giving a little “extra" special look to your gathering.

10. Everything Bidet’s new portable bidet

 Everything Bidet’s new portable bidet is the must-have travel accessory for women to keep fresh and clean while on the go. It does not require batteries and is instead chargeable through a USB cable that plugs into any computer, wall outlet; even a car!  A convenient carrying case is also included.  Not only is the portable travel bidet more efficient and hygienic than tissue paper, but it is also more environmentally friendly as toilet paper destroys 27,000 trees every day.

 This is one gift that I am loving as I do love using my at-home bidet as I like the feeling of a clean tushie. When I travel, I just hate that I can not have that same clean bottom after using the bathroom. So this portable bidet will be awesome to bring with me when I travel. It is so easy to use as I just fill it with water and then use it after my number two.
