Christmas; it can be a time of joy, (delicious food! Family time! Christmas movies!) but it also can be a time of stress as we start to rack our brains over what to buy our friends and family.

Do you have that person that's particularly hard to buy for? We've put together a range of gift options you might not have thought of, but are bound to put smiles on faces around the tree on Christmas day.

Kiwi Property Gift Vouchers

No, these aren't gift vouchers to buy a house (although how nice would that be) but it's the next best thing. If you have someone you simply can't choose for, like a Secret Santa recipient, or your child's teacher, give them everything with a Kiwi Property Gift Card. They can use this at Sylvia Park, meaning hundreds of amazing stores are at their fingertips. Or seven other Kiwi Property shopping centres nationwide, with access to over 800 stores. I personally think a gift card is the best option - it means they can actually get something they want, rather than faking excitement over that mango bath set for the third year running. You can order online now for immediate e-delivery to your inbox, or theirs.

Jewellery from Michael Hill 

You might immediately write off jewellery as being too expensive or too hard to choose, but our mates at Michael Hill have you covered. They have bling for every budget; from sparkly snowflake studs for your niece, to diamond and gold hoops for mum. How better to say 'Feliz Navidad' than with precious metals? If choosing jewellery makes you break out in a cold sweat, pop in and see them - they'll be more than happy to help.

Michael Hill  has got you covered with Christmas gifts for everyone on your list (with no need to break your budget!). Give a gift they'll treasure, with jewellery in real precious metals starting from just $19.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2 4G

Buying for someone who’s attached to their smartphone? What better present in this tech-savvy age than a new Samsung Galaxy Watch Active2.

If you're unsure on the specifics, smartwatches with 4G not only do all the great fitness tracking, hear rate monitoring & yes even time telling things you would expect from the latest smartwatch but also now they can give you freedom from your phone.  Take your Spotify music with you, make and receive calls, and receive notifications all on your wrist while your phone stays home.

A perfect gift for that small business owner who needs to stay connected, or the fitness seeker who wants to stop lugging their phone on runs - they'll love you for it! It's available now from Spark on selected plans – you will need a compatible smartphone, and active connection with Spark to enable 4G.
