How to choose the perfect gift

Giving a gift can be just as enjoyable and exciting as receiving one. Well, almost.

Presents with personality: What gifts to buy for people you like

We all want to give the perfect gift; to see the eyes of our partner, mum, dad, grandpa or aunt, light up when they unfurl the wrapping paper on the present that you spent yonks picking out.

Except... first you have to find that eye-brightening, jaw-dropping pressie. And there lies the tricky part. We’ve all been there; in front of the laptop with a blank screen and a blank mind - sometimes it seems impossible to know what, oh, what to buy as a gift.

Whether it’s for an anniversary, birthday, graduation, or perhaps you need something special for a new mum or your niece's first day at school? Whatever the occasion, you’ll find the perfect piece with just a few simple gift ideas.

It’s best to start with an idea of what the person you are buying for likes. Starting with the obvious doesn’t mean your gift will be - it’ll just be informed by the lovely person you want to spoil.

Raise your gifting game for fitness fanatics

Each product is inspired by the sea and features ingredients sourced from it - like Nori seaweed and fine sea salt. It’s shore to please and relax the fittest of fellows.
