How to find the perfect Christmas presents for difficult people

Christmas Wonderland

Some people can be hard to please when it comes to buying them Christmas presents. There are certain people who appear to have everything they need already. Then there are others who don’t seem to have any particular interests or hobbies so it’s hard to know what to buy them. Then again, there are probably some people on your gift-buying list who you don’t know quite so well, so you can’t really tell what they might like. And it’s for all these kinds of somewhat difficult people that thoughtful gifts of food and drink will prove so useful and welcome.

People who are difficult to buy gifts for are still likely to appreciate an attractive hamper full of delicious Christmas treats. Far better to give them something they can eat and drink rather than a bottle of guessed-at perfume or a brightly-coloured tie that they might not like – and perhaps even hate! It can be embarrassing and a waste of money to send an unwanted gift. At least people will enjoy sharing and consuming some wonderful food and drink, which is what most people are keen to do anyway over the Christmas period.

An unwanted present such as an item of clothing or a decorative item that is bought on impulse, or indeed in desperation, is likely to be stuck at the back of a wardrobe or appear in a local charity shop quite quickly in the New Year. Even worse, if the recipient is forgetful (or particularly cruel) you might find yourself receiving the same unwanted present next year, when the inappropriate gift is repackaged and given back to you!

Don’t let a difficult person hamper your Christmas gift choices.

So, if you have a friend or family member who is difficult (or even nigh on impossible) to buy presents for, Regency Hampers have some excellent solutions with their extensive range of Christmas hampers that will always receive a warm welcome. There are boxes of fine wines, cases of chocolates, hampers full of traditional Christmas treats and so many more great gift options that, whatever their tastes, you’re sure to find a Christmas hamper present to suit.

Take a look online and you’ll see a wide range of Regency Hampers Christmas gifts to suit each person and every budget no matter how difficult they might be to buy for. Here are just a few suggestions for those hard-to-please people.

For a very reasonably-priced assortment of traditional Christmas treats packed in a stylish presentation tray there’s the Christmas Luxury Hamper with Sparkling Prosecco which features Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, Swiss chocolate truffles. among other delicious edible gifts. plus an excellent bottle of Zonin 1821 Special Cuvée Prosecco, the sparkling Italian wine that adds fizz to festive occasions. It’s remarkable just how much can be packed within these delightful Christmas gift baskets of food and drink.

It feels so good to give and receive traditional food, drink and chocolates.

Another excellent yet slightly more unusual Christmas gift for ‘tricky’ customers is this tower of strength in a gifting crisis: the Classic Collection Festive Tower with Red Wine. Three brightly-coloured red and silver gift boxes create a tower of sweet and savoury Christmas snacks with red wine, chilli & herb-infused olives, spicy peanuts, luxury shortbread, flapjacks, tea, coffee and tempting chocolates.

For a truly luxurious Christmas gift (if your budget stretches to such an extravagant present) that is sure to be welcomed by even the most difficult person to buy gifts for, we can recommend the Cotswold Indulgence Hamper with Moët Champagne. This sumptuous and generous gift not only contains a bottle of celebrated Moët et Chandon Champagne but also sparkling Prosecco, vintage port, red and white wine plus smoked salmon, beef and venison among a host of Christmas delights all packed in a four-person luxury fitted wicker picnic hamper complete with plates, cutlery and wine glasses.

All these Christmas hamper gifts of delicious food and drink arrive beautifully presented with a hand-tied golden ribbon and the option of a personal greetings message. What’s more, many of these clever food and drink presents are packed in attractive and useful containers including wicker shopping baskets, lidded picnic hampers and seagrass trays that can be used for stylish storage solutions once the delicious contents have been consumed.

Take this opportunity to think outside the box and inside the Christmas hamper.

Don’t let a difficult person make it hard for you to choose them a perfect present. Don’t just grab a lurid Christmas jumper or a dodgy bottle of aftershave: think outside the box and inside the hamper. With such a wide choice of delightful Christmas gifts at Regency Hampers, even Scrooge would be pleased to receive such thoughtful and tasteful Christmas gifts packed with the finest food and drink. And that’s the traditional spirit of the festive season which, like Charles Dickens, we’re always keen to promote.

As Scrooge himself says towards the end of ‘A Christmas Carol’, “laughing and crying in the same breath” thereby suggesting that even the most difficult person can be transformed at Christmas-time: “I don't know what to do! I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel, I am as merry as a schoolboy. I am as giddy as a drunken man. A merry Christmas to everybody! A happy New Year to all the world!”

May all your difficult-to-buy-for friends and relatives be similarly transformed and experience the delight and joy of receiving such well-intended and delicious seasonal gifts this Christmas.
