And if you are still struggling, here are our top gift ideas for the person who has everything!

Don't buy them anymore stuff! Give them the experience of a lifetime instead. There are a number of online companies offering gift experiences, including Red Letter Days and Virgin Experience Days. But it might be more environmentally friendly (and economical) to think up your own ideas. If you are looking for a gift for a nature lover why not arrange to take them on a nature spotting walk through their local forest. Or take your favourite foodie for a magical picnic full of their favourite foods. You could even offer to babysit or do household chores to give someone the gift of time to spend doing what they love. 

Give the gift that keeps on giving with Present Aid, a charity gift website that supports the work of Christian Aid. Whether you buy a goat or life-saving equipment, your gift could transform the lives of people living in poverty around the world. 

Or support the work of Oxfam by choosing a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped. Prices start from £5 and they are currently offfering free chocolate with every order so that there is something to wrap and put under the Christmas tree.
