12 Gifts For People Who Are Hard To Buy For | CLARRI HILL

We all know that feeling of shopping for a tricky family member or a coworker. It's always the thoughts: “They have everything” or “I have no clue what to get." No need to worry anymore! We have the best ideas for the perfect gift for that tricky someone. Even better - all these ideas are from small and local businesses.


Finding a gift for your boss is always so stressful Is this too generic? Does it look like I put enough thought into this? Or too much thought? It’s time to get them something that they will love, and might just get you a raise. A great rule of thumb is to look for items that are affordable, makes life easier, for the office or their home or something that they have an interest in or a hobby. Here are a few possible gift ideas for your boss:

  1. Ceramic Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser & Good Morning Essential Oil Set
    This beautifully designed, high-frequency ultrasonic Diffuser, sprays the most refreshing mist throughout your space. Essential oils can provide health benefits such as stress relief and insomnia. Great gift for your boss, it can be useful for relaxing at the office or at home.
  2. Titanium Amour Wallet
    A sturdy wallet will be a great gift for your boss. Card-holder with magnetic closure and with a pocket for 20 cards are the best option. This Titanium Amour Wallet can carry cards, cash, and more at a fraction of the size of a traditional wallet.
  3. French Press & Pilot Coffee
    Nothing is better than a great cup of coffee to start your work day. Your boss will love to enjoy your smooth taste of Pilot Coffee from their brand new French Press. Definitely better than another mug that says "Best Boss Ever."


Coworkers - you see them at least 5 days a week, you know more about them than you may think. Many companies will play Secret Santa during the holidays as a way for coworkers to get to know everyone and do something special. If you are participating in this game or need a gift for a different occasion, we have some ideas for you:

  1. Evergreen Soy Candle
    The perfect gift for any coworker that's under $30! This classic scent of fresh balsam and pine is great for a close coworker or someone who's name you just learned this week.
  2. Plants
    Who doesn't love a good plant? Your coworker will love a plant to brighten up their desk or office. Even better, get them a plant with little-to-no maintenance, like a snake plant.
  3. Fresh Scents Candle & Room Spray Set
    Freshen up your coworkers office or living room with the Fresh Scents Set. The smell of clean linen and sea breeze candles, mixed with a beach room spray will be the perfect addition to their space.
