Christmas shopping is so hard. To prevent another year of Coles/Myer gift cards for your mum, dad, brother, girlfriend or whoever the heck you’re shopping for, we have compiled a gift guide of the best gifts to give him or her this year. We’ve simplified it down to a single Christmas gift idea, but in different versions for him and her.
Ho, ho, hope you’ve been saving up!
1. A Streaming Service Subscription
FOR HIM: Kayo Sports
For only $25 a month, you can give that special dude in your life the Christmas gift that keeps on giving. On Kayo Sports, you can livestream pretty much any sport your heart desires in HD. The service features golf, boxing, MMA, surfing, tennis, US football, soccer, AFL, rugby league, cricket and everything bloody else.
FOR HER: Disney+
For $8.99 you can spoil the Disney Princess in your life with a selection of all her favourite old school Disney movies and TV shows on Disney+. She can indulge in binge watching Frozen, Freaky Friday, Hannah Montana or The Little Mermaid.
2. Society6 Art Prints
FOR HIM: A Music Poster
All boys like music, so if the recipient of your gift is a hip hop fan, opt for a cool poster like this ASAP Rocky one ($19.99). If your dude is more of an old school guy, a The Smith’s poster ($19.99) or a Queen poster ($19.99) will do the trick.
FOR HER: An Artwork On Canvas
Girls love decorating their bedrooms, it’s a fact of life. So I can guarantee the lovely ladies in your life will love a pretty artwork to hang on their wall like this Jungle Tiger painting, canvas print ($98.99). Or if she’s more of a fashion girl, These Boots canvas print ($116.99) is EVERYTHING!
3. A Card Game
FOR HIM: Buzzed
This card game ($34.99 on Catch.com.au) from the creators of pop culture fav, ‘What Do You Meme,’ claims to be “The Drinking Game That Gets You And Your Friends Wasted.” For your beer drinking bros, this game is the perfect gift and Christmas party starter. Players take turns drawing cards such as “drink twice if you’re using somebody else’s Netflix account,” and “player with the hottest Dad drinks (vote)” and the rest is history.
FOR HER: For The Girls Adult Party Game
This doozy ($42.99 on Catch.com.au) is also from the creators of ‘What Do You Meme.’ It includes ‘Truth Or Dare’ cards, ‘Most likely to…’ cards, ‘Whoever…’ cards, ‘Never Have Ever…’ and ‘Rapid Fire’ cards. These include dares such as “Post an Instagram story of a selfie from below (double chin must be included) and “Update your Facebook status to ‘It still itches’.” Christmas girls night just got wild.
4. A Carry Bag For Work Or Uni
